Audiobook and other updates

So the audiobook for Ghosts of Burning Inn #1 is underway and I’ve gotten to hear the first eight chapters. It’s so great! I also have plans to get Wrapped in Death and Chocolate turned to an audiobook. Maybe the treat I put in SASS giveaway will be an audiobook if I can get it in time 😉

Speaking of SASS, I’m planning on getting more swag made soon. My new books definitely need them. I’m thinking I might do hand sanitzers this time around. Everyone likes and needs hand sanitzers all them, myself included. I might do hand lotions or mint tins too. I’ve got enough postcards as it is and lip balm. I do need more bookmarks though. I’ll get them done some day soon.

I have also started the next Portman’s Creamery standalone book. It’s currently at 1K right now. So my projects for the second half of year are:

Portman’s Creamery standlone #3

PC Arc: Black Paradise Circus #2

Cirque Macabre #2

Flavors of Love #2

These aren’t all coming out this year, mind you! Just that I’m working on them. TRA #2 is more or less ready for the editor in August. That will be the last book I release before SASS. After SASS, I’m expecting Patterns & Parallels #2 and maybe one more thing (if I can get it ready). But most in that list will come out in 2016.

With storms rolling in, I’ve got to stop right about now. I promise to slow down with updates.

Coming up in 2015

So I did promise to talk more about what’s coming in 2015. There’s at least three books that I’m sure will be out this year,possibly another one or two more. A lot has been going on in my personal life that has slowed me down a bit but I have not stopped writing. I usually try to write 1000 words a day, more if I can manage. I wish I could write all day but that’s not possible.

Anyway, upcoming books for 2015:

-Into the Limelight (I’m aiming for February/March 2015, may be sooner or later). This is the first book in my rocker romance series, Ghosts of Burning Inn. You’re going to follow Ben and Catherine’s relationship from the moment Catherine joins the band and through the growing popularity of the band. It’s not NC-17 though they do talk about certain things that you shouldn’t talk about in front of your children XD. (Will I ever do erotica in this series? It is possible 😉 )

-Paper Hearts (Most likely May/June 2015). The second book in the Patterns and Parallel’s Saga. We follow the events after Hearts Under Ice and see how Donnie and Olivia handle being in a new world completely made of paper. Also, more on their growing relationship.

-Four of the Usual Suspects (Anywhere between February to July 2015). This is the next mystery in the Portman’s Creamery series. We’ve got another murder mystery where the killer is named. Unfortunately, the case is not as simple as it looks. I’m not sure when I can finish with this one. It’s currently at 19K.

The might be coming out in 2015 books:

-The Anti-Genome Group (Fall/Winter 2015 most likely). The book is ready, I just need time to get it edited and formatted. I have no idea when I’ll do that. This is the sequel to Operation: Genome #1.

-Unlikely Allies (Fall/Winter 2015 as well). The sequel to TRA#1. This book is currently at 14K.

I know people are waiting Cirque Macabre #2 but that book is currently a mess. I need time to weed through it, lol. If I’m lucky, I can try to have it ready by end of the year. Also on my plate are starting the third books to P&P, the next book to Ghosts of Burning Inn, and finishing another Portman’s Creamery mystery. I’ve also made some playlists for my books, which I will post one day.

I have some sales and freebies coming up in the future (to celebrate my upcoming birthday, really). I’m also planning to get more swag later in the year for my signing in October. I will also get the paperback to Hearts Under Ice up this month too.

In the meantime, you can still check HUI as an ebook out on Amazon. Hopefully, I will remember to use the right links this time. Only posting a few here but it is out in all Amazon sites:

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00RC5GO5Q (US)

https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00RC5GO5Q (UK)

https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B00RC5GO5Q (CAN)

https://www.amazon.de/dp/B00RC5GO5Q (GER)

That’s it for now. Let’s hope I survive this year!

Tiny update

In case you missed it, I also have a tsu account. I will try to use it more often in the future. I’m still working things around.

I also have to look at some of my editing changes, which I haven’t had a chance to do. I graduated earlier this week so that pushed things back. Throw in the fact that I haven’t been feeling well and I got behind on everything. But I will try to fix up Hearts Under Ice this month and hope to get it out before the year ends. Then I will also try to finish Into the Limelight. On Christmas Eve, I will give you the synopsis to that book.

Hope everyone has a good week.

Yet another short update

Welcome all!

I just three tiny bits of things to mention tonight.

-My summer book signing in Georgia was canceled sadly. I’m sorry to those who were looking forward to seeing me there. I’ll try to secure another signing if I can. I was planning on bringing Wrapped, Hearts Under Ice, and Into the Limelight during that time too.

-Speaking of Into the Limelight, it’s moving along nicely. Even though it’s not erotica, there are still some things mentioned that are not for all ages. So proceed cautiously if you’re not into that kind of thing. I’m still also writing everything else in between too! No worries there.

-My graduation is on the 11th. I’ll finally have my masters. To celebrate, I’m going to make Wrapped free from the 11th to 13th. The next Portman’s Mystery is also being written. This one is a little shorter but I will try to finish asap.

Much love,

~C

Small update

Ah, I finally got the paperback to Operation: Genome #1 out there! Go check it out on Amazon if you get a chance! In the meantime, the ebooks are still .99 so grab it while it’s hot for your kindles/nooks. 🙂

 

In other writing news, I’m getting ready for summer classes (I’m taking them on purpose cause I’m almost done with my masters). My writing might slow down a bit but I’ll still be keeping up with it. Currently, OG#2 is at 60K and it’s nowhere near finished. I do think it’ll be done before this year is over though. I want to get more motivation to finish Cirque Macabre #2 but I have no idea when that’ll happen. And I’ll finally get around to adding The Reaper’s Apprentices #1. It feels like there’s always so much to do but not enough time!

 

Back to writing!
