If you’re on the mailing list, you got your free copy of Killer and the Queens last week when A Very Wilde Christmas was released. If not, though, you can still join the mailing list and get the short story about Killer’s second Christmas dinner.
Tag: Wilde Love (Page 1 of 2)
Hey guys, it’s been a while since I’ve posted about this, so I just wanted to update you.
First, the Wilde Love Christmas stories will be out soon. They’re essentially an epilogue to the series, a short happily ever after for each couple in the series. (I’ve got a little extra surprise for mailing list subscribers, too!)
Second, yes, the main series story arc is done. There are two more books I’m still considering writing in the Wilde Love world, but they will be completely stand-alone. So if you’ve been waiting for the end to read, feel free now!
Next up is The Rowan Harbor Cycle! In a world that looks just like ours, but where the supernatural lurks just beneath the surface, the series starts with Devon coming home to Rowan Harbor after spending his life running away from himself.
With werewolves, magic, hints of Celtic myth, and a an epic quest that will save not only their town, but possibly the world, The Rowan Harbor Cycle is going to be lots of fun! I hope you’ll join me for it!
Okay guys, I sent it off to my mailing list earlier this week, and I think I’ve been sitting on it long enough.
Here he is: Mickey.
I’m sure it surprises precisely no one that Natasha Snow made this, and it’s utterly stunning. While I know a book cover isn’t required to be an exact representation of any character therein, this? Is perfection. I don’t think there could have been a better picture to show him off.
Now I have to go put him everywhere.
Yeah, you read that excerpt right. Next book in the Wilde Love series is going to be Owen and Mickey’s story, Saint and the Sinner. It’s with my editor right now, and scheduled for release on November 27th.
Also coming before the end of the year will be A Very Wilde Christmas. Lots of Christmas fluff about your favorite Wilde Love characters.
While I have more books planned for Wilde Love, it’s unlikely that book five is going to follow as quickly as the first few have come. There are various reasons for this, but the one I’ve decided to share is this: what’s coming next.
I read and love all kinds of romance, but I have a particularly soft spot in my heart for paranormal romance. Since before I decided to start with Wilde Love, I’ve had this idea for a series. It’s a little long, counting in at a planned nine books, so I decided to start with something a shorter, or at least more open-ended.
I’ll be posting a little about it here and there for the next few months. I’m shooting for a January release on book one, so it’s coming up fast!
As many of you know Natasha Snow is the designer of the covers for the Wilde Love series. She just completed the cover for the third book in the series, Strike Up the Band, and I wanted to share it. The mailing list got a sneak peek last night, but as her covers tend to be, this is too lovely not to share with everyone.
Strike Up the Band will go on sale at Amazon on September 27th, and you can preorder it here.
During the week of the release, the ebook of Straight from the Heart will be on sale for 99 cents, so that will be a good time to pick up a copy if you don’t already have one!
Now that Sins of the Father is live, I’m refocused on what’s next: Strike up the Band, to be released in September.
This is Jake’s story, and it’s kind of close to my heart. First, because Jake is literally the first character who came into being in this universe. Second, because Jake, like me and at the suggestion of the excellent Ami, is asexual.
I spent a lot of time trying to decide what asexual looked like for Jake, since it’s different for all of us, and tried to make the book informative on the subject without reading like a wikipedia entry on the subject of asexuality. It’s a finer line than I would have thought.
I’m still trying to decide whether to include this in the blurb other than as a warning that unlike the previous books in the series, this one will have no sex scenes.
For the curious, here’s the blurb:
Jake McKenna doesn’t want to be here. He doesn’t want to be on tour, he doesn’t want to be playing guitar, and he definitely doesn’t want anything to do with Brian Mulholland. He’s biding his time until the tour is over so that he can walk away from his music career for good.
Brian didn’t ask to be here. Okay, maybe he did. Fine, you know what? He wanted this. He may not like the circumstances that have landed him in his dream job, but he’s not going to let anyone ruin it for him, even if it’s the insanely hot guitarist he’s had a crush on since the first time he saw the band play. He will win over Jake McKenna if it’s the last thing he ever does.
Personally, I suspect Brian will manage to win Jake over, despite the hurdles they both have between them and the end of the tour.
There’s a giveaway going on right now as well. It’s strictly for members of the mailing list, so if you want a chance to win a signed copy of Straight from the Heart, sign up for the list and follow the link in your email to get your chance to win!
Next up, Jake’s story, Strike up the Band, will be available in September!
This week, everything’s coming in for Sins of the Father!
The lovely and incredibly talented Natasha Snow and I have been talking about the cover, which is going to be gorgeous. Mailing list members will get the first peek at the finished cover when I get my hot little hands on it, and I hope you love it as much as I do!
Just as importantly, my fabulous editor from Clause & Effect has returned the manuscript with edits to be done! Now I may be one of a very few authors who love doing edits, but I really, really do. I’ve found the right editor, who never makes me feel bad about my work, and who is also totally willing to tell me when something has to be changed.
I feel so lucky, to be working with two of the most talented people I know, who are helping me give Keegan the best book I possibly can.
For anyone who’s interested, Wilde Love book two, Sins of the Father, has been sent off for editing. This means that I get to spend the next few weeks doing one of two things: emailing my editor every two minutes to ask what she thinks (Sorry Maddie, I’ll do my best not to!), or hiding in a closet and hoping for the best.
Okay, fine, there are other options. I’ve got plenty to do in my ‘day job’ for the next few weeks, which will keep me occupied. Also, I have three homework assignments left to do before I’m finished with college forever. And then believe me, there will be cheesecake.
Funnily enough, all I want to do is start book three. Strike up the Band, y’all. Jake’s story is coming.
