Weekly News & Updates

NWFBNewsandUpdates

Hello all! Hope you had a wonderful weekend! This week's update brings some exciting news. As some of you may know, the THIRDS series is currently being translated into French, with Contre vents et marées (THIRDS t. 1) being released June 30th. I'm super happy to announce that The Auspicious Troubles of Love series is also currently being translated into French with Les Mésaventures Prometteuses de Chance (The Auspicious Troubles of Chance) coming soon! There's also talk of the THIRDS being translated into another language as well, but I'll share more on that as soon I have more solid info.

Along with translations, the North Pole City Tales series has been contracted for audiobook! The Heart of Frost and Vixen's Valor will be released on audio late this fall! Mending Noel is already available, and if all goes according to schedule, Loving Blitz should be out in eBook format in December.

I've had a few folks ask if Against the Grain will be released on audio. I do believe it will be, but I won't know for sure until the eBook is released. DSP contracts audiobook on or after book release. With the THIRDS I usually hear from them about audiobooks a few days after release. I'll definitely share more on that once I have more information.

The Against the Grain Blog Tour starts Aug 3rd and there will be an awesome giveaway that includes swag themed to the book. Expect some fun geeky stuff.

On July 20th the fabulous Joyfully Jay is hosting the exclusive cover reveal for my contemporary romantic comedy novella Beware of Geeks Bearing Gifts. The pre-order will also be available on July 20th, and along with the cover reveal there will be a giveaway and exclusive excerpt. Release day is Aug 19th. There will also be a blog tour starting Aug 19th. More info on that soon.

For anyone attending Rainbow Con in Tampa, I'll be there just hanging out and checking out the events on Friday, July 17th through Saturday, July 18th, so if you fancy saying hello, asking about your favorite book or series, or just chatting, come find me. :D

I'll also be attending GRL in San Diego, CA in October 2015 as a Featured Author, and Coastal Magic Convention in Daytona Beach, FL in Feb 2016 as a Featured Author, so stay tuned for info on panels and events as we get closer. I'll also be attending RT Booklovers Convention in Las Vegas 2016. More on that soon!

I think that's it for this week. Stay tuned to the blog for more on upcoming releases, up dates, events, and more!

It releases on August 3, 2015, published by Dreamspinner Press.

**~~*~*~*~~**

BLURB

As the fiercest Defense Agent at the THIRDS, Destructive Delta’s Ash Keeler is foul-mouthed and foul-tempered. But his hard-lined approach always yields results, evident by his recent infiltration of the Coalition. Thanks to Ash’s skills and the help of his team, they finally put an end to the murdering extremist group for good, though not before Ash takes a bullet to save teammate Cael Maddock. As a result, Ash’s secrets start to surface, and he can no longer ignore what’s in his heart.

Cael Maddock is no stranger to heartache. As a Recon Agent for Destructive Delta, he has successfully maneuvered through the urban jungle that is New York City, picking up his own scars along the way. Yet nothing he’s ever faced has been more of a challenge than the heart of Ash Keeler, his supposedly straight teammate. Being in love isn’t the only danger he and Ash face as wounds reopen and new secrets emerge, forcing them to question old loyalties.

Settling In and Updates

Hello all! Hope you're having a lovely week. Well the move is over and I'm finally getting back into the swing of things. We closed on the old house the same day as Healing Hunter's Heart released and everything moved at breakneck speed after that. During the chaos of moving, I had several days in a hotel while waiting for things to move along for the close on the new house. I was prepared with the notebooks and tech I figured I might need, including mobile WiFi Hotspot just in case. Luckily the hotel had free internet access which kept me from feeling completely disconnected. Everything else was in storage. I also had furbaby-who's-not-so-baby-anymore Olly with me. I was a little worried about how he'd take to life on the road, but he was such a good boy.

In a way having to wait, along with my somewhat limited internet access, helped me focus on writing and getting some work done. Considering I only had to push back one of my titles since the deadline fell just as things were crazy with selling, packing, house hunting, and all that fun stuff, I still managed to make two of my three deadlines. I think I managed pretty good. I was worried moving would wreak havoc on my schedule, but I managed pretty well. I'm still catching up on emails and few odds and ends, but thankfully everything's settled down, which means I've been able to take part in a few events I wasn't sure I'd be able to manage because of the move.

July 17th & 18th (Friday and Saturday) - I'll be attending Rainbow Con. Although I won't be taking part in the panels or the signing, I will be there hanging out and just having fun, so be sure to find me to say hello, chat, or if you'd like a book signed. I'll also be tagging along on the Big Cat Rescue Trip because I've been dying to go and omg, how can I not?! Big kitties!

RT Booklovers Convention 2016 - I'm taking the plunge and attending next year's RT Booklovers Convention in Las Vegas. I'm super nervous but also very excited! More info on that soon.
