The Focus Has Shifted

It’s official.

I’ve finished the first draft of In The Moment After, set to release June 2024. I’m done, guys.

*wipes sweat*

The epic battle scene that took three weeks to write, and then the iconic “I love you” scene after that, and tying together all the loose ends (that I’m aware of. BETA readers: I’ll need your help) but everything is written from the first scene to the last. And, while I have a vague idea of what I wrote, I really have no clue, but I’m not looking at it again for a while. Not until A Return of Ghosts is on its way to be released.

What I’m saying: the focus has shifted. I’m putting down Robin and Grayson’s story to work on June and Nikolai and their epic (and front stage) tale. Basically (for all you nerds in the back like me) we’re going from Batgirl & Robin (or Gwen & Peter if you’re a Marvel fan) to Batman and Catwoman. Not interested in either or superhero romances in general? Well, I have a contemporary romance and sci-fi adventure romance available; I’ll direct your attention there 😉

I’m trying to be more active on the social media front, as I’m not a fan of it much. But I’m trying to make the rounds. If you’ve joined Threads, are on tiktok or Insta, I’m lurking in the corner somewhere. Come find me! I promise we can be silly and laugh about things. Literally my goal in life.

Have a great week!


Take a Look and Let me Know

I’m not sure which of you stalk my website (100% it’s all of you) so you’ve probably seen the change. The BIG change. But for those lame non-stalkers, I got you:

I got new covers, baby 😊 Not for ITMB or ARIP, and you know I just updated BTT with my headless man pictures. So, by the mighty powers of deduction, that puts the new covers on my original series: Arizal Wars. You probably haven’t heard me talk about this one in a while. Probably because I first started writing the series in 2011, and published the first book in 2013. I’M STILL NOT FINISHED WITH THE SERIES.

I know. Like, awful author rule-breaker over here. It’s just—I wrote four back-to-back action-adventure books and I needed—I NEEDED—to write something different. A straight romance. And that’s how Better Than This blossomed. I’d planned on releasing the fifth and final book of the Arizal series like two years ago, but then Nikolai and June (and then Robin and Grayson) fought for their turn and their story. I only got the first draft of the fifth book written, and that’s about it. Haven’t looked at it since.

Buuuuttt I’ve known I’ve wanted new covers for a while. Something a little more magical than straight science-fiction. Because, whereas Arizal Wars is technically science-fiction, it reads like fantasy with magic, and I want the covers to convey that. So…take a look and let me know. They’re already paid for and uploaded, so there’s no changing them now. Not until I update them again in ten years.

This is the first place I’m announcing it so BE READY. I will continue to shout about my new covers from the rooftops for sometime because:

  1. I love them
  2. I paid for them, did the hard work to update them everywhere (except paperback. Not quite there yet but SOME TIME SOON)
  3. I need/want to for marketing purposes.

Like I said, get ready. And please, let me know what you think!

Have an amazing week,
