Bijou Babbles: Saint, Gator, and the Holidays

For months, I've been asked when Damaged and the Saint would be published. I hoped for late October (ha!). Then it was Thanksgiving (I wish!). Next was mid-December (that would be right now!). I finally promised the book would be published in December.

Well December 30 is the official date, so I've kept my promise. I know this book has taken me forever. Yet my son is finally getting the help he needs, so hopefully I can focus more in 2015.

My first project next year is the standalone novella for a multi-author box set. As soon as Rebound Biker is complete, I’ll start Broken Memphis. I’d love to have it published by early March.

Amazon has finally approved Gator’s sexy new cover. Since it took so long though, I've decided to keep the sale going through the weekend.

Also, my last giveaway of the year ends on the 17th, so be sure to enter.

Finally, I hope everyone enjoys the holiday season. I'm so thankful to you all for your support this year. You’ll never know how much it has meant to me.

Coming Attractions: Sawyer/Jace Edition

Last week during a blog party for Kathryn Kelly's new release, I posted info about Sawyer Johansson's standalone novel. I wanted to share it with everyone who might have missed it.

A dozen years in the future, Sawyer mourns the loss of her father. To cope with the grief, she ditches Ellsberg and looks for trouble on the road. Big brother Cooper sends his enforcer Jace to track her down.

Sawyer and Jace started as friends before becoming something more. Jace was her first and only love, but he pushed her away. Now Sawyer’s running wild and Jace’s job is to bring her home. Despite their past together, she doesn't plan to make things easy for him.

“In the Wind” will take place mostly out of town, yet we’ll be able to catch up with the Damaged couples and their families. I hope to publish the book in the summer of 2015.

Damaged and the Saint Cover Reveal

Final Book in the Damaged Series

Saint lost his soul in Mexico a decade ago. Once a man of God, he struggles against his restless nature, drawn to a life of death.

As a teenager, Harlow´s innocence was stolen. Years have passed, yet she still hides behind her rage, haunted by darkness, too afraid to trust.

Broken and desperate, they must let go of the past and embrace their chance at love.

Damaged and the Saint's expected release is December 2014.

Bijou Babbles: Family Issues and Publishing Delays

I want to start by thanking everyone who’s enjoyed my books and talked them up to their friends. My success is purely based on word of mouth, so I’m incredibly thankful to my great readers.

I had really hoped Damaged and the Saint would be published this month. It still might, but I can’t be sure anymore. As some of you know, my 17 year old son has been ill since earlier in the year. His health continues to deteriorate because of behaviors related to his autism. Since my day to day schedule is stressful, Saint remains incomplete and might not be published until December. Broken Memphis will likely be released in early 2015.

I’m a very private person and normally hold my personal issues close to the vest. Yet everyone has always been so supportive of my delays. I’ll know more by next week (fingers crossed) and will have a better idea of when the books will be published.

Thanks to everyone and happy reading!
