Happy Thanksgiving!

photoThis is the day we all remember what we’re thankful for. My Thanksgiving morning ritual (once I’ve gotten started with the cooking) is to make a list of what I’m thankful for. Here are some things I’ve come up with so far:

  1. My¬†family (both for those still here and those who have passed on, but I’m grateful they were in my life)
  2. My friends
  3. My health
  4. My READERS

I’m still working on the list (I just started about 15 min ago and am not finished with my first cup of coffee yet), but it’ll be much longer by tonight, when I finish it up before going to bed. Right now, however, I wanted to take a moment to say a big THANK YOU to those of you who’ve tried my books (whether you liked them or not). All of you make writing worthwhile.

I hope all of you have a happy and healthy Thanksgiving with your loved ones. The picture above is of a “turkey cake” I got last year because I thought it was so funny. I hope all of you have a wonderful day and get plenty of rest before braving the stores tomorrow (or curling up at home to avoid the madness).

Where Have I Been?

Covert_Box_Set_FinalI am so, so, so sorry for my loooooong absence. I’m afraid life happened. I thought I would be leaving town for a weekend, or a week at the most, and ended up being gone for four long months. Being back home feels like being in an alternate reality at the moment.

My absence completely derailed the release of my new series, Smart is the New Sexy. I do plan for that series to see the light of day, really! However, I have to get everything back on track, including writing the rest of the series, so at this point, I’ve decided the best thing to do is delay the release until 2015, Keep an eye out for a late spring/summer release. I hate the delay, but I refuse to release anything but my absolutely best work. You deserve that!

As for the Covert series, that has been delayed, too, I’m afraid. I had two more books planned in the series, but the more I think about it, it seems like the two books would do better as one book. I’m playing around with things, seeing how it works. Elle and Reese will make it to a permanent HEA, but I need to figure out exactly how I want to tell the story of how they get there.

After the unexpected turn my life took this summer, I’m afraid to even give a “guesstimate” on when I think Covert Series #4 will be ready until it’s much further along. Once I know, though, you can be sure I’ll tell you.

But for those of you who haven’t read the series yet, keep your eye out for the Covert Series #1-3 box set! It’ll be¬†available at retailers soon. If you want to know when, feel free to join my Mailing List.
