There are only two days left in the month and then it is February.
January has flown by so fast, but then it has been a busy start to what is going to be a very busy year for me. I'm still working my day job. I wish I could quit today, but when I take a look at the bigger picture, I need to keep working, at least for now. I only have about five years left until I can retire, so it doesn't make sense to toss it away.
In the past, I've written 3 to 4 books per year. This year I've planned for about 8 books, and have ideas popping up for more. It's my most ambitious writing schedule. I'm working on writing more and being more efficient. It is definitely a work in progress.
January has definitely been busy. Joy's Forever, Bryant Station Curves book 7, was released in both ebook and paperback. Currently, there is a contest to win a signed copy of Joy's Forever. Just go to my Facebook page and comment on the Book Contest, but hurry! The contest ends on January 31, 2017.
What am I currently doing?
Currently I'm have finished the first three chapters of Surviving Ivy, Bryant Station Curves book 8. I'm planning to for a Spring release. By the end of February, I should have a definitely release date. Fingers crossed. Surviving Ivy is Ben and Ivy's story and it takes place roughly ten years after Joy's Forever.
In February, I will be releasing the second Bryant Station Curves box set. It will contain books 4 - 6 (Saving Courtney, Lauren's Mate, and Claiming Harley). It will be in ebook format and paperback. I plan to release the first box set in paperback, but haven't set a date yet.
Question for you: Do you want to see all of my books in paperback???
What are some of my near future plans/goals?
I'm jotting down plot ideas for the next book in the Reluctantly Undead series. I had a file of material which included character bios, but since the move, I haven't been able to find it. I'm beginning to think it will be faster for me to just recreate the information files I need.
Bryant Station Curves series will come to an end this year. Book 9 will be out toward the end of the year. I'm sad to bring it to an end. It's sad, but there is a rainbow.
In Surviving Ivy, you will meet some new people who either currently live or will be moving there in Bryant Station. Two direct spin-offs will happen. These are still in the very beginnings of the planning stage...basically notebook pages with ideas jotted down.
What about planners?
I use a planner and have finally figured out a system that works better for me. I started the new system at the beginning of this month and so far am happy with it. If there is interest, I will post more about my version of a creative/functional planner.
Don't forget about the chance to win a signed copy of Joy's Forever. The contest ends Tuesday, January 31.
Joy Anderson is different from the other shifters in Bryant
Station. She and her cave bear have died and been reborn more times than she
can count.In each life, she has longed
for her mate and a family, but lies and her insecurities have kept her running
from her mate.
There is only one woman Theo Willis wants and that woman is
Joy Anderson. She is his mate, but she has been running from him for centuries
and he doesn’t know why.
They need each other, but will that need be enough to bring
them together? Will they be able to discover who is behind the lies that has
kept them apart?
