Bijou Babbles: Saint, Pax, and 2015

What a week. I want to begin by thanking everyone who bought, reviewed, and talked up Little Memphis. Starting a new series before finishing Damaged was a gamble, but I’m thrilled so many readers connected with Shay and the Reed brothers.

I’m currently writing Damaged and the Saint with the goal of publishing a little after Halloween. I won’t have a set publishing date until mid-Oct. This book is the first time I've finished a series, so I want to allow for the time necessary to properly wrap everything up. Not only do we say goodbye to the characters in Ellsberg, but we’ll meet the guys from the Bad Men Rising trilogy I’m writing next year.

Early next year, I'll take part in an anthology with several awesome romance authors. I can’t give too many details since it’s still on the DL. I can say my standalone novella will be a second chance romance. I’m very excited to participate and can’t wait to share more info.

As for 2014, I won’t get much of a vacation. As soon as Saint is completed, I'll start Pax's book. I had intended to make the series two books. Yet since so many readers connected to the first book, I’m considering adding a third. I have characters in mind plus book three would allow for more time to deal with the changing club dynamics.

Broken Memphis will be released by the end of the year. As excited as I am to spend time with the Reed brothers again, I need to give Saint his due first. In fact, he's waiting for me right now, so I'll finish my post with the first teaser from Damaged and the Saint. Thanks to Miranda as always for putting together the design.

Little Memphis Cover Reveal

Little Memphis ~ 9/18/14

Ford spills blood as an enforcer for the Little Memphis MC.

Shay makes an impulsive choice to start over her life in a wild city controlled by a motorcycle club.

Meeting Shay at the MC´s bar Suede, Ford sees her as a shiny new toy to spice up his life. Shay sees him as a sexy bastard she needs to avoid.

The city of Little Memphis is filled with violence and dubious loyalties. The days of the club’s supremacy are over as enemies fight for territory and alliances fall apart. It’s a dangerous time to find love, but Ford and Shay have never been good at playing life smart.

Bijou Babbles: August Blues

August is a weird month. Just saying...

Little Memphis is getting a new release date. Between family health issues and the book being longer than the last few Damaged novels, I need more time to fine tune it.

I've been dying to write Little Memphis since January when I stopped in Blytheville, AR. I was driving to TX for a book signing and brought along my two assistants/sons Jack and Luca. If you remember back in Jan, a massive snowstorm hit the Midwest, so we took most of the day to get through Illinois. By the time we arrived in Blytheville, it was dark and we were cranky.

The hotel was nice and the girl at the front desk was nicer. As we began dragging our suitcases inside, a nice couple asked if we'd been to town before. When they learned we hadn't, the woman warned us to be careful since Blytheville was called Little Memphis.

As you can imagine being a single woman with two boys on the road, I wasn't thrilled to find out we stopped in a scary place. The reality was we were gone by the morning, never had a single problem, everyone we met was sweet as sugar, and we chose to stop there on the way home a week later. Yet the idea of Little Memphis stuck with me.

The Little Memphis series  will focus more on the MC along with Ford and Pax's jobs as enforcers. In the novels, Little Memphis isn't a safe place to live even for those protected by the club. Yet Shay finds friends and her fantasy man in this violent world.

Soon I'll post excerpts from the book, a cover reveal, and blurb. I also have lots of fun giveaways planned for September. Until then, happy reading!

Bijou Babbles: Memphis, Sales, and Giveaways!

Hey, chickies! I can't believe August is already here. I'm currently working on the first book in the Little Memphis MC series. I'm hoping to have it released either late August or early September.

Then I'll return to Ellsberg for Damaged and the Saint. Harlow will meet a man strong enough to break through her walls. I'm planning for Saint to be released by November. While I'm sad to see the series end, I'll likely write a book one day for Sawyer and Jace. I suspect their book will be released late in 2015.

For now, my focus is on Little Memphis ~ a romance between MC enforcer Crawford Reed and Shea/Shay Thompson. On the sidebar, I'm having a poll to help decide on the spelling of her name. Here are my visual inspirations:

In other news, Used is .99 this weekend at Amazon and B&N. If you haven't grabbed a copy yet, now is the time!

Finally, I'm having a giveaway for a signed copy of Damaged and the Bulldog. Be sure to sign up. Plus keep an eye out because I'm planning more signed giveaways through August.

Damaged and the Bulldog is LIVE!

Book six in the Damaged series is now live on Amazon, B&N, and Smashwords. In Bulldog, Dylan and Winnie find their HEA and spend time with the crew. We also get hints at the final Damaged book with Harlow and Saint.

I'm taking a break for a few weeks to work on a book for my other pen name. Once I get it completed, I plan to write both Saint and Little Memphis. The latter is the first in a two book series following brothers and MC enforcers. My goal is to publish both books along with Saint in 2014. I'll start fresh with new series and standalone books next year.

I hope everyone enjoys Bulldog and thank you for your support!
