News, Future Projects, and Where I’ve Been Lately

I’ve been doing a lot of signal-boosting for others here lately and not posting much about myself, but that’s because this summer has been…well, “crazy” is putting it mildly. My husband and I bought a house just before Memorial Day. A few weeks later, my sister became critically ill while on vacation in San Diego, so we flew cross-country to be with her. After two weeks there, I accompanied her to her home in Virginia Beach while she recuperated. I was gone for an entire month. Two weeks after I returned home, we adopted two rescue basset hounds (who are the most loving, adorable furbabies ever) from Tri-State Basset Hound Rescue. It has certainly not been a boring summer.

While I was away, however, I managed to finally finish Firebird, the first book in a contemporary romance series featuring my beloved new character, Alex–you can check out the men who helped inspire him on my Pinterest board. I participated in Twitter’s Pit2Pub in July, generated a lot of interest, and ended up selling the trilogy to Limitless Publishing. Branching out into a new genre has been a lot of fun, and the Firebird series will keep me busy for a while, but fear not; I haven’t abandoned horror and dark fantasy! I’m also working on two steampunk novellas, a zombie novella and a novelette, a Weird novella, and a cosmic horror novel.

If you haven’t already, please consider picking up my books at Amazon, and look for Firebird on October 20!
