Crime Lord’s Paradise & Winter Writing Updates

After Gavin Pyre steps down from his position as crime lord, he and Lyla focus on picking up the pieces of their lives and creating the paradise they deserve.

FINALLY it’s on all retailers. I thought it would be fun to do a surprise release. Uh, no, not fun. More like nightmare. More like HELL. Having the book go live within 3 hours on some retailers and 24 on others was a bitch. Therefore, you better believe the next book is getting a damn preorder. My sincere apologies to the poor souls who had to wait hours or a day longer than everyone else!

Releasing a book is always nerve-wracking for any author and particularly me since I don’t release that often. I don’t even like bothering people to tell them I have a book coming out. LOL. For those who reached out to me as soon as I announced there would be a new release, you guys are a special breed. I got emails saying, “Hooray! Thanks for letting me know. Keep me informed, okay?” And then there’s the flip side: “Where the hell is book 5?” (I’m going to go hide now). Every time I release, my readers humble the fuck out of me. The emails, posts, tags, and reviews you guys leave or send to me just blow me away. Having people empathize and be so invested with the characters I spend so much time with is a miracle! I still can’t believe I’m so fortunate. I have the best job in the world!

I’ve been in Sin City for over a year, but I think I need more quiet. Too much drama in the city (ironic, I know). SO, I wasn’t sure where I want to move. Thank God, I have an amazing friend who is letting me stay in her Utah home. (The pic isn’t her actual house, but this will probably be me in the future. Hermit-writer.) I’ll be in Utah for the winter, writing book 5 and 6 and who knows what else. (I’ve been bombarded with so many stories lately, I don’t know how my brain is retaining all this insane info.) But my main objective is to complete Carmen’s book. I’ve said before that the timelines in 5 and 6 intersect so I need to write them at the same time, which is why I need more time. Because I feel terrible for being a slow mo fo here’s a sneak peek of book 5. This is a draft and some things may change so take what you read with a grain of salt.

I figure I’ll bunker down in Utah and if I get itchy feet I’ll go see my siblings or friends who live in the Pacific Northwest. Anyone need a house sitter?? Bwhaha. Nora Roberts wrote about a writer who was a house sitter. Mind. Blown. I can’t believe people do that for a living. If I wasn’t a writer, that’s what I’d be trying to get into. I still might… LOL. I haven’t found my place yet. Therefore, I wander. I’m hoping on my travels this summer I’ll find a place that feels right. I’m trying to learn to just go with the flow. We’ll see how that goes.

I’m gonna wrap this up by telling you again, thank you so much for your patience and support. I love the emails and messages and tags on social media. You guys are the best and I couldn’t do it without you! Your enthusiasm and support urge me onward and I can’t wait to show you what else I’ve got in store. 😉 I don’t know how much I’ll be online, but if I disappear, know I’m writing, which means good things for you as well! I love you guys!

    Omg I’m so excited! Would Angel be the lead in this story? I like Marcus, but somehow, I ship Carmen with Angel.
