I 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*.
