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!

Bijou Babbles: Bulldog Delay

Bad news, chickadees. While I was editing Bulldog, I found myself unhappy with elements of the book. Something was just lacking. With time running out before the expected July 15th release date, I knew I needed to either publish a book I wasn't happy with or postpone for a week.

I didn't want to shortchange Dylan and Winnie and especially not my readers, so I'm holding the book for a week to do additional work. I apologize for this last minute delay. In a few days, I'll post a cover reveal and blurb.

I also want to thank Miranda for creating a new teaser for me.

Bijou Babbles: Publishing Update

Hurray for summer!!! Fireworks are already bursting in the air here for the 4th of July. Yep, my neighbors get started early.

I am currently finishing the first draft of Damaged and the Bulldog. I'm a little sad writing this book since it follows Winnie and her family. All the Harlow time reminds me how her book will be the end of the Damaged series. While I have considered returning to Ellsberg one day to give Sawyer a HEA, writing a book that takes place so far in the future can be tricky.
 
After Bulldog, I plan to start a new two books series titled Memphis. Enforcers for a biker gang, Crawford and Paxton Reed find their HEAs in a crime ridden town. Little Memphis will be published before Damaged and the Saint with Broken Memphis coming afterwards.

I figure I'll finish 2014 with a few standalone stories then start new series next year. That's my plan anyway and we all know how I am with plans. :O

Until next time, happy reading!

I'm on a roll!!! After months of delays, I finally have a writing groove!!! First with Dragon and now Used. My new biker romance is available at Amazon, B&N, and Smashwords. Still waiting on the paperback.

Bo 
I did six years in prison to protect the Grove Motorcycle Club. Now free, I remain trapped in their lies. The only freedom I find is in the bed of a girl who’s no one’s favorite.

Used is a standalone novella.

***Extra thanks to Miranda for her cover design. Yummy!
