July writing update

Every month, I try to catch you up on what I’m working on. So, for your July reading pleasure (LOL), I give you the monthly update.

Submissions still awaiting word from editors:

Cocktales! I’ve proposed a new series to Ellora’s Cave and my editor bought ALL four of them!!! Keep checking back for more details. Party Naked has been written and it’s on my editor’s desk. Next up will be Screwdriver, Bachelor’s Bait, and Screaming Orgasm! Each book revolves around one of four girls who own and operate a bookstore/bar (my dream job) in Portland, Oregon.

Because You Love Me  – This sequel to Because of You is another romantic suspense involving Caleb’s brothers, the twins, Matt and Mark and the woman they fall in love with, Bridget. Oh yeah, it’s also a red hot menage! I finished it yesterday (no lie). It’s with beta readers now and I hope to have it on my editor’s desk next week. Fingers crossed.

So…what am I writing next?

Other books on my Summer Writing list include A Wild Irish Christmas. I miss the Collins family, so I’m revisiting them. Don’t be surprised if Sunday makes a big appearance in this one!

White Knight (sequel to Black Jack) is definitely coming. I’ve had lots of people asking for Travis’s story and I intend to write it next. Travis’s whole story is in my head and it’s screaming to be told. I’ve finally met his heroine and I love her! Hope you will too.

 Jayne and I have finished Eastern Ambitions, which means it’s time to turn our attention to the last book in the series, Western Ties (Compass Brothers). I’m sort of dreading the writing of this book as much as I’m looking forward to it. There are some very emotional scenes planned.

After that, I plan to tackle my very first m/m book ever. It will be a short story and the final book in the Because trilogy. In it, the youngest James brother will find his HEA.

And looking way out in the writing distance, I see at least two more Black & White Collection books.

Phew! Okay–that’s it for now. I’ll check back in with y’all in August.

    Wow! That’s quite a list! Did you ever think you would be updating your own blog with all these books that you wrote? (Most of them sound pretty much written, anyway *wink*) I’m so excited for you. Can’t wait!
