Plugging Away

This past weekend I went through copy edits and finalized Tactical Strike, so now it's off to the magical land of production for it's March release. I've also done up a glossary of military terms that I hope the Carina Press team will include in the book, so all those acronyms don't confuse my readers. It's written in Ryan's POV, so his personality shines through in the descriptions.

I'm also about two-thirds through the first draft of Maya and Jackson's story and starting to think about what I want to write next. I'd really like to finish up the paranormal trilogy I started with Darkest Caress, but we'll see.

Soccer season started this past weekend as well. My 6 year old lost his first tooth, so he was super excited about that. More so than about his soccer game :)

Hope everyone is enjoying the transition into fall. Here in Vancouver we've had an unusually dry August and September, with 5% of our normal rainfall. We haven't had any real rainfall since early August, and it's very weird. I keep waiting for the fall rains to set in so I can dig out my boots and sweaters. I love the fall storms! Uh, except for when I have to stand out in the wind and rain for soccer.

In the Swing of Things

School's back in session now, so we're all getting into the old routine around here. So far the transition has been relatively painless, and soon there'll be soccer schedules added into the mix.

Today  is the first day in weeks that I don't have either kids to entertain or edits to get done, so I'm hoping to get most of a chapter written today on Maya and Jackson's book. Edits for Tactical Strike are in the final phase now, and I've decided I really do like the story after all. That's always a good thing.

In book release news, Katie Reus has yet another book out this week (she writes so fast it floors me), this one the second full length novel in her paranormal shifter romance Moon Shifter series. Primal Possession hit the shelves on Tuesday and has already garnered rave reviews.

Blurb: To protect her, he will unleash the beast within…

As his pack’s second-in-command, lupine shifter Liam Armstrong gives orders and takes what he wants—until he meets red-headed, blue-eyed December McIntyre. Liam knows the human beauty is his intended mate the moment he sees her, but December is far too strong-willed to accept his protection.

December, whose brother is the town sheriff, has every reason to mistrust shifters after one killed her youngest sibling. But the forceful and handsome Liam has gotten under her skin in a way she hadn’t thought possible, and the desire she feels for him is almost too much to bear.

When a radical hate group targets all humans known to sympathize with paranormal beings, December is attacked in her bookstore. Reluctantly, she turns to the only one who can help her: Liam. And he is going to take her to places within herself she never knew existed.

Happy reading!
