List of books and series

This is just a reference page for my sake really. I want to keep up to date with what’s out and what will coming out. It also helps me seperate all the books I’ve got in different series’.

Note: I’m updating the prices on some of these books on Kindle so I’m using the B&N links for them.

Updates again

I was going to update yesterday but I realize that I’ve been updating on Monday nights for the last few weeks (don’t ask why my calender has them marked under Tuesday. I think it’s further ahead than I am). Anyway, some minor updates to mention.

First, I have finally gotten around to ordering more swag for SASS. In addition to my poker chips, postcards, and magnets, I shall have more chapstick along with new things like hand lotion, hand sanitzer, and…this may excite you…condoms. The latter is not official yet but it might be. Yes, they’ll be representing the Flavors of Love series. So now almost everything has swag for it except The Black Paradise Circus series (unless you want to count Portman’s Creamery with it cause it is a longer mystery with the PC girls).

Secondly, I’m waiting on my cover for Patterns & Parallels #2: Paper Hearts. I forgot how much I like being in the P&P universe (or universes) sometimes. I think that may be why I went back to it this weekend. Now that I’ve started the third book, it’s forming into something big. The first one is available online for only 2.99.

Patterns & Parallels #1:*Version*=1&*entries*=0*Version*=1&*entries*=0

Third, audiobooks will be out soon and I’ll be needing people listening and reviewing. If you are interested in that, please drop me a line. I’ll send you an audible code so you can get them for free. At the moment, only Ghosts of Burning Inn #1 has an audiobook to it but Wrapped in Death and Chocolate, Four of the Usual Suspects, and Sweet Love will be coming soon too.

Fourth, I’m coming close to hitting a milestone at Smashwords! Just 15 more to go! Here’s my profile over there in case you never saw it.

Updates on works:

Flavors of Love #2: 42K

Ghosts of Burning Inn #2: 20K (stopped this for now)

Cirque Macabre #2: 15K

Portman’s Creamery #3: 15K

The Reaper’s Apprentices #3: 14K

Patterns & Parallels #3: 7K

Operation: Genome #3: 22K

Operation: Genome #4: 38K

(Don’t asky why OG #4 is further ahead than #3)

Now I should probably get back to writing.


More books now available on Kobo, Oyster, Apple, B&N, etc.

Well, I finally got around to adding some books on other sites. So if you don’t use Kindle, you now have other options! Hooray! (Struggling to get through Apple’s site right now but they are there)

CS Patra books on Barnes & Noble:

CS Patra books on Kobo:

More to come soon.


Actual updates!

I know I’ve posted mostly teasers over here (and I’m still trying to make some more). However, I think I owe everyone some actual updates as well. Let me bold some of the important stuff.

First, tickets are now on sale for SASS in October!

updateson current works:

Patterns & Parallels #2 is finished and sitting at about 51K. Will go to the editor on the 16th. It’s shorter than book one and is centered more on Olivia’s side of the story. Book #3 will be more centered on Donnie’s. Speaking of Book #3, I’m thinking about starting that as soon as I finish TRA #2 and get further on Sweet Love.

Black Paradise Circus #1 is finished and sitting at 52K. I will send it to the editor on the 23rd. Judging from what I’ve got, this book may come out before P&P#2. The reason for that is because I have the cover and secured an editor and just need a formatter now for this book. I still don’t have the cover for P&P#2 yet. I said their due dates are sometime in late June but it might be earlier.

The Reaper’s Apprentices #2 is at 43K right now and I want to go a little further on it tonight.

Sweet Love is at 24K. I got a lot done on this one over the weekend. Once I get to 30K, I will reveal the plot behind it. Yes, the erotica does have a plot but I do promise you sex as well.

Paperback is available for Four of the Usual Suspects!

To celebrate the upcoming sequel, P&P #1 is free on Amazon for the next few days. Get it to get an understand of how things started!

(ETA: Sorry about the messy links. I have no idea what happened)

Next weekend may not be a great writing weekend. I have plans then but I will do my best. Work will be hectic so I will need to escape to the writing hole in the evening.

Much love,


Updates and so forth

All right, I’ve got a few things I need to mention.

1) The tickets for Sassy in the South go on sale this Friday! If I recall correctly, there will be only 150 VIP tickets sold so get those while you can! Regular tickets, there will be a lot of. I’ll have the site where you can buy and information on that in my next update post. Also to note, that Friday I will have an author takeover on Facebook at the signing page. Again, more info coming on my next update here.

2) So I’ve more or less finished two books in a month. Wow. It’s safe to say that Patterns & Parallels #2: Paper Hearts and Portman Creameries Cases: Black Paradise Circus #1 (kind of a subdivision of the PC series) will be out sometime this summer. The Reaper’s Apprentices #2: The Contracts currently sits at 42K but that is slowly getting wrapped up too. That just leaves me one other book. Sweet Love, the first in the erotica series Flavors of Love, is sitting at 13K right now.

3) I’ll be doing a cover reveal of Black Paradise Circus #1 sometime in June. I’ve already secured an editor and will secure my formatter a little later. From the looks of it, that may come out before P&P #2. We’ll see how things go.

4) In the meantime, Four of the Usual Suspects is now available on Smashwords! All they say it’s in review, you should be able to get it if you’re fans of Smashwords.

It’s still out there on Amazon for Kindle and paperback too.

5) For the signing, I’m already planning on bringing three of the PC books, P&P 1 & 2, and if they are out, TRA #2 and Flavors of Love. Probably Ghosts of Burning Inn too. I’ll do a google doc for anyone who wants me to bring something else in the process.

6) My workload is going to pile up but I will survive! Once I finish up TRA #2 and get to a good spot on Flavors of Love, I will start Patterns & Parallels #3 and (at long last) Cirque Macabre #2. I know. It’s been a long time since that one has had an update, right?

Much love,


Master post of books

I’m just making this post for my own benefit and for any newbies that don’t know my work. This is actually for the list of series and/or books in the same world. I’m only putting links to the ones that are published on Amazon. This is also a list of books and when their sequels are most likely coming out. I need to get myself organized.

That’s about all for now. That’s what I needed to do and I’m glad I did it!


And February comes to an end…

I’ve fallen behind a bit on my work and sending things out due to illness and cold weather. I swear I will try to get back to my normal schedule soon. February comes to an end so I’m hoping March will be better. I’m just going to give you a quick update on how far I am with the next couple of projects. With Ghosts of Burning Inn #1 ready for release, I’m finally ready to get these sequels going.

-Four of the Usual Suspects: Novella mystery. Is with the editors now. Should be out by spring.

-The Patters and Parallels Saga #2: Paper Hearts is sitting at 23K. Aiming to have that out by summer.

-The Reaper’s Apprentices #2 is at 54K but not finished yet. I hope it’ll be done by this year.

-Ghosts of Burning Inn #2 is at 3K. Not rushing to finish this one yet.

-Cirque Macabre #2 is going to be overhauled and rewritten.

-Operation: Genome #2, 3, & 4 don’t have due dates. #2 might be out in the Fall. We’ll see.

I’ll see you all in March!
