So I’ve finally settled on the novel that’s coming next: Werewolf at the Gate.
It’s partially written and I hope to focus on it for a while and get it finished sooner rather than later, although no promises! I’ll update as soon as I get closer to the end of it. :)
A trade paperback edition of Wolf in the House is now available. You can find it at Amazon now. :)
It’s also available internationally at Amazon UK and Amazon CA and many other stores. :)
It will be available at Barnes & Noble and Book Depository eventually, but it usually takes a bit longer for the paperbacks to show up in those stores. (Available now.)
Wolf in the House is finally available!
At the moment, you can pick the book up at Amazon.com, but it’ll be available more widely within a few days. :)
I’ll update the book’s page with the additional links when they’re available.
And if you pick up a copy, thank you! :D
Wolf in the House is coming June 12! It’s likely the book will be available in some places sooner than that, but the 12th is a good compromise as an official release date. ;)
Here’s a look at the final cover.
The first book has a new cover too! I’ve included it below. I needed a more cohesive series look and I think I’ve got it with these. I have covers for the upcoming Werewolf at the Gate and Bet on Marriage too, although I can’t promise when they’ll be out. I’m hoping there’s interest in these guys, because I really like writing their stories!
I’m aiming for a May release for Wolf in the House. I meant to post this announcement when I’d finished the book, but I’ve been working hard trying to get another book ready for my other self, and it slipped my mind until this morning. Sorry about that!
I’m waiting on cover redesigns for the series, and some other stuff, but I expect the book will come out a bit later in the month. I have a kid graduating high school this month, so it’s been a bit crazy for a while. :D
Anyway, I’m really happy I finally finished the book. The book took a lot longer than I’d planned, and it’s quite a bit longer than I’d planned, too, but I think it’s a fun story and I’m hoping a few people will enjoy it as much as I do.
I’ve already started working on Bet on Marriage and Werewolf at the Gate! (Because I can never write just one book at one time.) :D I honestly can’t say at this point which one comes first, because they’re kind of concurrent in the timeline but we’ll see what develops.
I’m often overly optimistic with deadlines, and obviously I was overoptimistic about when I’d finish my next book! I’m working on changing that, but the fact is, me and deadlines just do not seem to get along at all. Every time I set one, I start having a much harder time writing my stories. I’m posting this update because I’m still working on Wolf in the House and I had said the book would probably be ready this month. It’s not, but I will get it done!
I’ll post another update soon. And if you’re waiting for this book, thanks so much for being patient with me! :)
A trade paperback edition of Alpha Next Door is now available.
I’ve very pleased with the book. It’s so pretty!
You can get the paperback at Amazon right away, but it’ll also be available in other online book stores soon. Finally, you can also ask your local bookstore to order the book and they should be able to do that for you.
Blake’s an average, ordinary werewolf—
“What?” Jane interrupts. “Are you kidding me? Werewolves aren’t ordinary. And they don’t exist, so don’t waste your breath telling me sexy Blake Reave is a werewolf, because I won’t believe it.”
Okay, how about this? Blake Reave is far from ordinary—
“Got that right.” Jane fans herself.
“Go on. Just stop trying to sweeten the story with half-truths and outright lies.”
Werewolves are real. You’ll find out, one way or another.
Jane’s gaze contains a marked degree of skepticism. “Sure.”
You will. Right before—
Jane slaps her hands over her ears and gives me an evil eye. “Don’t ruin the story for me!”
Jane has just had to move back in with her parents, into their new—rumored to be haunted—house in Gambel county. She hasn’t been in town long when she runs into Blake Reave and finds herself unable to resist the wild and reckless urges she’s been fighting for months—urges she can’t explain but also can’t deny…
Blake Reave can’t believe his good fortune when he stumbles across a woman capable of mating with one of his kind. Werewolf mating season is less than a year away and claiming a mate is the most important thing he’ll ever do for his pack.
Blake’s willing to take advantage of Jane’s every weakness to claim her as his mate—and using her weakness for his touch against her is just the beginning…
***I’m now estimating the book will be out in Jan 2016. :) Estimates are estimates so that date could be off, but I’m feeling good about this one!
I’m currently working on Wolf in the House, but it’s been slow going. (I work on multiple books at a time, because if I didn’t, I’d never finish any of them.) HOWEVER, I’m hopeful I’ll have the book published by the end of the year. I have two other books to finish first, and then I’ll be able to devote myself to finishing this one. I’m behind on the other two books for my main pen name and that’s why I’ve taken so long to get Wolf in the House completed. It’s not a surprise to me that this is the case. I am a very slow writer compared to some and I just have to do my best. :)
I’ll post updates about my progress to this page if you’d like, and I’ll definitely post the news to the site when the book is done.
I’m so thrilled to be able to say this book is finally here.
ALPHA NEXT DOOR
Release date: July 2, 2015
Available at Amazon
Ellie’s just found out she’s supposed to marry Bastien Reave, one of Bar Reave’s twelve hot—and creepy as hell—grandsons. It’s a ridiculous marriage contract, one she’s sure can’t be enforced, but Bar Reave is one scary old man. There’s only one thing to do—pay back the money that changed hands when her grandma signed that damn contract.
Bastien Reave has just come back to town to take his rightful place in the Reave pack as the future alpha, and although their impending marriage is news to his future bride, he’s known for years that Ellie is the woman for him—even if he hasn’t been all that happy about it.
But Ellie isn’t the same girl he left behind, and Bastien has grown into a man Ellie can’t stop thinking about.
With werewolf mating season coming, the future of the Reave Pack is at stake, and neither of them are going to be able to fight their nature for long…
Alpha Next Door is the first book in what I hope becomes a long-running series. I tend to become absorbed by the worlds I write about and that translates into lots of connected stories. I enjoy revisiting characters I’ve gotten to know in previous books. If you read the book, I hope you enjoy it!
So I now have the cover for my book, and of course, that means I have my title.
I’m facing the irrational fear now that someone else will use the same title and it’ll be a big hit and I’ll feel completely weird about releasing my book. Irrational, I know, but I’m sure it happens.
Whew. I need to get this book ready to go so I can quit worrying! :D
