Monday Deja Vu All Over Again

Monday again coffee girlI need coffee. I’m off meeting my CP at the local Starbucks for a coffee break, a brain-storming session, and general chit-chat. Here’s hoping all of you who might have been caught by the Blizzard of ’16 are safe, sound, and warm. I’ll lift a cup in your honor.

Busy weekend. After a phone conversation with my editor, looks like there’s a good possibility for three new Red Dirt Royalty books in 2017. It’s a little weird being a hybrid. On the traditional side, I look ahead a year. On the self-pub side, I look ahead a month or two. Or three. Not a bad way to be, just different.

Speaking of Red Dirt Royalty, #3 comes out in June. THE BOSS AND HIS COWGIRL was an emotional write for me. I really hope people like it. Clay and Georgie’s story was tough to write but it’s a book I’m proud of. RDR#4 arrives in October. It was a blast to write. Chase and Savannah are funny and sweet and their inconvenient marriage of convenience made me laugh, even though there’s a few sniffly parts. The next three books are Cash’s story (#5), Kade’s story (#6), and then the Tate cousins get their books, beginning with country music star Deacon (#7), which is a Christmas story. I’m looking forward to writing all three.

Reading: Shhhh. RITA books. Can’t disclose. At the same time, I’m listening to a “reread” of the very dark Beyond books by Kit Rocha for a break. A bunch of them are on sale if you haven’t read the series. The world of Sector Four is dark, gritty, beyond sexy, and beyond my “sex” comfort zone but I still ❤ these books like damn and whoah and can't wait for the next one. Gotta get my contest reads done ASAP!

TV: LUCIFER debuts tonight on Fox. The devil takes a vacation in LA and crushes on an LA cop. What's not to love? Hopefully, this series is as well-done as the teasers have been. Really sad news re: NCIS. Very Special Agent Anthony DiNozzo, played by Michael Weatherly, is departing the series at season's end. This gives me a huge ol' sad. 😥

Who's a fan of cozy mysteries? I'm doing a survey.

Did I mention that MOONSTRUCK: SECRETS has gone into wide distribution? I took it off Kindle Unlimited and sent it out to a bunch of new sales platforms. I still have to get it uploaded to All Romance. Maybe today. If you haven't read the book, want a copy for your very own, and don't like Amazon, check the Moonstruck page to get links.

There was something else I was going to mention but I can't for my life remember what it was. Teach me not to write stuff down. 🙄 On that note, coffee, work, and then babysitting Stormageddon this evening. What's on your agenda today? Here's to surviving Monday! *clinks coffee mugs*.

    Not a huge fan of cozies. I like my murder and mayhem a bit grittier

    • Silver James says:

      Judith, I like ALL of my reads (and writes) a bit dark and gritty. 😆 However, I have a series idea that lends itself to cozy and while the last thing I need is another series, the idea persists. I’m pretty sure I know my readers but I figure it never hurts to throw out ideas. 😀

  2. My head’s up my editing right now. Blew my deadline. Reset it to Wednesday. I haven’t heard from J whether that’s kosher or not. I hope it is.

    Yay for more RDR books! You go, girl. I like cozies. They’re a nice break from super-tense fiction. Sorry about DiNozzo.

    Agenda… finishing up this edit round so I can get it to J and think about something else for the next three weeks. Other than that? I can’t think beyond that. Ask me again on Thursday.

    • Silver James says:

      Okay. I’ll hit your blog and ask on Thursday. 😉 You’re like me, B.E. You read pretty much across the board if it catches your interest. Good luck with the edits. I’m diving back into that ASAP.

    Woohoo for more RDR books! Super excited as I’ve loved the books so far. June and October aren’t really too far away…really.

    I do read some cozy mysteries. Usually authors I love and trust. Sometimes it’s nice just to have a relaxing mystery. I’m super sad about DiNozzo leaving NCIS. Wonder if they are writing Tony out to have his own team or if (for my romantic heart) he goes to get Ziva and they finally get their HEA.

    I’ll miss out on Lucifer since on opposite Scorpion. No DVR means must watch favorite shows live. However, if Lucifer is on Hulu tomorrow, might catch up on it this weekend.

    • Silver James says:

      Crossing fingers that Lucifer is on Hulu or Amazon. DiNozzo and Ziva riding off into the sunset would be awesome! As mentioned, I have an idea for a cozy series but man…time! *sigh*
