Tempting Dragon is Available for Preorder Now!

I've finished the rough draft of Tempting Dragon, and it's up for preorder now! I've started editing, and it will be ready by the end of the month, if not before! If you've been waiting for the next installment of Dragon Echoes, you can preorder your copy now, or sign up to my newsletter to know when it's released.

Verrian thought they were safe in the city. He thought his enemy would never find them. He was wrong.

With reporters and police all hunting for them, last thing they need right now is a dragon fight. Especially since Lisa knows that if she heals Verrian one more time, they'll be mate bonded for life.

Despite their burning attraction, Verrian seems as reluctant to form a permanent bond as she is, but what choice do they have? She's not going to leave him to die, no matter what.

Cunning Dragon is Out Now!

Cunning Dragon, the latest instalment in Dragon Echoes, is available now! 

Lisa knows she can't just abandon dragon shifter Verrian when he's been separated from the rest of his clan by a nosy reporter, but why did they have to end up at her parent's place? They always make her feel less than nothing, and now they're embarrassing her in front of the hot dragon shifter prince. When a blurry picture of Verrian ends up in the newspaper and the locals come knocking, it seems like the perfect excuse to run for the hills.

Lisa has a lot of experience with running away from problems, but could Verrian be worth facing up to her fears and fighting for?

Verrian feels bad for putting Lisa in such an uncomfortable position, but the truth is he is out of his depth when dealing with the problems faced in the human's world. After failing miserably in the last dragon battle, he doesn't feel capable of dealing the threat of his ancient enemy either. Verrian needs a new tactic.

Lisa might not have dragon strength or magic, but she seems to hold her own in spite of that. Maybe she can teach Verrian about more than just human technology.

Don't Quit!

dontquitYou may have noticed this picture on my little motivational lightbox when I posted my office pictures on Facebook the other day. (If you're not already following me on Facebook, why not!) Yes, there is a story.

Some of you may be aware that November is NaNoWriMo month, and I nearly always sign up. Sometimes I win, but more often lately, I don't. November isn't a good month for me. My daughter's homeschooling report is due in the first week, and this often means I am behind for that first week. Now being behind in the first week isn't so bad, because you have all month go catch up. A couple of days wordcounts divided by 3 weeks is still perfectly doable.

This year, in the second week, I got sick.

Quite often I can work through being sick, but this time, it really knocked me. My nose was burning and it made my eyes water, and concentrating on anything was hard. So I gave myself permission to take time off until I felt better.

By then, I was WAY behind. As in, need to write over 3,000 words a day to catch up behind. As in, give up on winning behind.

And yeah, I probably won't win now. 3,000 words in a day is quite doable, but every day? Not likely to happen. But that doesn't mean I'm going to give up.

I still have words to write, and I'm going to be writing them anyway. I'm going to set lots of small, manageable goals, and see what happens. Every hear the saying “If you shoot for the moon and miss, you'll land amongst the stars”? (Yeah, I know, not astronomically accurate, but we're talking about motivation here.

That's my aim.

How about you? Do you feel like giving up when you get behind, or does it just make you more determined to win?

Introducing: Fated & Forbidden!

I'm really excited to finally be able to share a new project I'm working on with all of you. A few months ago, an author friend suggested writing a multi author series, and her concept was so cool, I just had to join in. Luckily, it fitted really well into my existing dragon shifter series, and I had the perfect couple for it.

Check out Fated & Forbidden, a multi-author paranormal romance series!

FATED & FORBIDDEN

11 authors. One PNR series.

After lifetimes of watching her creations perpetuate misery and destruction, the creator Allendra has had enough. She’s given them a month to prove themselves capable of love… and to prove they should keep their supernatural powers. Some will fight, and some will fall, but all will feel the power of the Blood Moon… even Allendra herself…

You can check out the series page here, and sign up for the mailing list to be notified when each book is released! Of course, I'll be mentioning them all in my newsletters too, as well as talking about my book in this series, Dragon's Cowboy!

My contribution, Dragon's Cowboy, is available for preorder!

Dragon shifter Wayrian just wants to live a quiet life. Fat chance of that when her clan as at war and her grandfather wants her to marry a prince. As if that isn’t enough, a crazy goddess appears in her dreams and threatens to turn her clan human if Wayrian doesn’t marry her fated mate by the Blood Moon. A mate who is not a prince. Who isn’t even a dragon.

Lured away from his father’s cattle station by the excitement of the dragon shifters, Chase is careful to keep his distance. He’s happy to help out by waking one of the dragon princesses, but he isn’t planning on mating forever. Even if Wayrian thinks that’s the only way to save her people. He doesn’t believe in true love—he’s been burned before.

But when a reporter bent on exposing the dragons' existence drives Chase and Wayrian into hiding on the cattle station, things between them begin to heat up. The only problem is that Wayrian’s grandfather, hiding with them, is determined to keep them apart at all costs. Will Wayrian risk her grandfather’s ire to save her people, or will she make her own choice?

The Book that Just Wouldn't End

I've been promising it since book 3 was released almost 2 years ago. I've been writing it on and off since November 2015. Editing has taken 3 months! And that cover, I've been struggling with that since I first decided to write an alien as a main character.

Why has Reckless Remedy been so difficult to write?

I could say it's because I have an alien as a main character. This creates all sorts of problems, starting with how to show him on the cover, to how they are going to communicate, to what was his home world like and why is he the way he is? Those factors have certainly influenced why it's taken so long.

I could say it's because the other main character is a doctor, and the main conflict in the story revolves around medical issues, which has meant a lot of research!

I could say it has something to do with the fact that this is the longest book I've published to date!

The truth is, everything about this book has been hard. There were a lot of times when I was tempted to give up, and go back to my dragon shifters. They're shorter, easier, and I know people will buy them in large numbers.

But I also love this story. The Barren Planet series was my first published series, and it will always have a special place in my heart. I've built these characters up into people I almost feel like I know.

And maybe that's why it was hard too. I wanted to do them justice. I wanted to make sure I included everyone my readers would want to see. (But I couldn't, there were too many!) I wanted to give them the ending they deserved.

And yes, before you ask, this will probably be the last Barren Planet book. While I love this series, it just doesn't sell well enough for me to continue to write full length books in it. (Especially not if they're all as difficult as this one!).

Its due out in a few days, on the 31st of July, and I hope all those who have been waiting for it enjoy the story.

You can still get the special preorder price of $2.99 for the next few days, then it will go up to $3.99.

Reckless-Remedy-thumbAlien supersoldier Kugah is on the run. He needs the human’s wormhole technology to find a new home, far away from anyone his genetically engineered presence can hurt. Then he meets Amelie. Her gentle, caring nature opens the possibility of a future with someone by his side.

Amelie is too busy being doctor to a spaceship full of pregnant women, she doesn't have any time to regret being alone. But when the passengers begin to show signs of unnaturally rapid ageing after a desperate trip through a wormhole, she has no one else she can rely on other than the strong, silent alien. The things she’s starting to feel for him must be just a product of the fact that they could soon be the only two left alive on the ship.

Their species aren’t even compatible. They couldn’t possibly be falling in love.

Reckless Remedy Preorder Plus a Website Update

If you come here often, you may notice that things look a little different. I've spent the last couple of days redoing my website from the ground up. Hope you all like it. I'm still tweaking, so it may change a little over the coming week, but not too much. The major work is done.

It should all work pretty much the same, but if you encounter any issues, please let me know!

At the same time, I've also uploaded the preorder for Reckless Remedy! This one has been keeping me busy (and quiet!) for the last few months. Almost done now! Check it out below.

A Rebrand for the Twin Gems Series

I've written before that while Twin Curse is my best reviewed novel, it also sells the least copies. I've already been through one set of replacement covers, and now I'm at it again. This time, I've changed the title and series title as well. We'll see if it makes any difference.

Unfortunately, the covers haven't updated on Amazon yet, but the titles and look inside have.

In the meantime, I'm loving these covers by my talented sister. Aren't they beautiful?
