New Contracts and an Indirect Lines Update

If you've taken a look at my updated website, you'll see that there are four (yes, FOUR) books listed under the Coming Soon page. (If you can't see it, hit the Refresh button. That's how new the update is.)

Yes, Ma Bell has been a wee bit busy.

Sorry Charlie, the third and last book in the Poconos Pack trilogy, has been turned in and is already under contract! You can see the unedited blurb and excerpt on my website now. It will be out on April 26, 2016.

The next book is Hide and Seek, the sixth of the True Destiny books. That series is winding down to the finish line as well. Only two more books after Nik and Toni get their HEA! There's an (unedited) blurb but no excerpt, because I start writing that book today. It should be out some time in June.

The third  book listed is Electric Dreams, the seventh Gray Court book. This series has no predestined end, so it will go on until you get tired of it or I do. It's only listing is on the Coming Soon page, because while I have a contract I haven't started anything on it yet. I expect it to come out in the fall.

The last book, Hope in Darkness, is the sixth Halle Shifter book. This, too, is an open series with no real end date. When the current mystery is solved (and resolved), the next thing that enters my brain to torture my shifters with will begin. I expect it will be out before Christmas.

As for More Than Words, it's on temporary hold until I can get that bad boy finished. I needed to get these other series under contract with Samhain before I could finish the third Nephilim book for Carina. For those who are waiting for it, I promise I'll still work on it as I can.

Now, for the Indirect Lines update: it will be out in print on March 8, so if you've been waiting for the print edition, there you go. The purchase links for the print edition are live on my website now.

P.S.: For those who have been worried about my medical condition, thank you! It's been rough, and we're still working out what's wrong and what's not. My brain seems fine (YAY!), but my potassium and my vitamin D were both low, so we're working on changing some meds to fix that.
