Chapter 1 completed

I just finished Chapter 1 of the new novel. Currently this work-in-progress just goes by the working title of Shade right now, as he is the hero of this tale. So far we've meet Susanna, who finds herself lured into quite a pickle. Shade rescues her from that situation, but ends up putting them both on the wrong end of trouble as a result.

The fact that a bomb has just exploded might give you a clue as to the high stakes adventure the couple are in for.

Now I am going to work on a submission packet to send the novel Secrets of the Dark to a new agent for consideration. I am hoping the novel acceptance at Ellora's Cave will help to spark the interest of Jennifer Jackson at the Maass Literary Agency. Keep your fingers crossed for me!

Lots of News!

So much had happened this past month I hardly know where to begin!

Fans of the Kinsmen Vampire Romance series will be getting a new erotica quickie soon. “Kitten” is a very bold and spicy short story that will give you hot flashes when you read it! I just signed the contract with Silk’s Vault and the title is already listed on their ‘coming soon’ page. I’ll let you know more details when I get them.

Even more exciting that that is the acceptance of my romantic suspense novel Her Dangerous Promise! This is a mainstream romance with lots of suspense, excitement and romantic tension. I should be getting the contracts and the publishing schedule from Cerridwen Press, an imprint of Ellora’s Cave, in the near future.

Ellora’s Cave asked for revisions and a resubmission of a Kinsmen Vampire Romance novella. I just sent them the revised manuscript of “Redemption” and hope to hear back from them in the next few weeks. If you liked “Raging Passions” then “Redemption” is going to thrill you!

In case you have not heard, Venus Press has closed their doors. This has left “Always” and “Riding Dennis” orphaned. I am shopping them around to new publisher trying to find them a new home and I’ll let you know how that goes.

As for new material, I am sharpening my pencil and getting down to some serious work on a Kinsmen Vampire Romance novel featuring Shade from “Raging Passions.” I have plans to bring back Caden and Dean in future stories as well, so hang in there and we’ll have these sexy vampires making you beg for a love bite very soon!

I am working to update the homepage and the Myspace page. A good friend of mine who is an amazing graphics designer has kindly agreed to help me with their designs. I’ll let you know when we’re done redecorating so you can come and do the ‘Ooooo’ and ‘Aaaaaa’ thing.

Thank you again to all of you who sent me well wishes! They truly meant a lot. *Gives you all a hug!*

Have a great week everyone!
