WIP Progress Report (#17)

- Title: Untitled
- Genre: Hockey Romance
- Word Count/Goal: 42,583/80,000
- Release Date: Unknown at this point
- Series? Carolina Rebels

I'm working on so much this month, I don't even know where to start! Plus, it's been since around late January since I posted a WIP progress report, so there's a lot of catch up on! Let's start with my main WIP.

So, Ian is getting a novella and a book. After that, there will be a couple (I'm announcing soon, I promise!) with a novella, and then there will be another couple with a book. That last couple is my main WIP.

I'm really enjoying these two. There's a bit of an interesting aspect to their story, so that's been fun to deal with. Plus, I've added a dog to the story and that's always fun! I'll even admit that I'm slightly nervous about this story. I can't quite put my finger on exactly why, though. That part isn't so fun, haha!

As you can see by the word count, I'm a little over the halfway mark. That's so good because I will be taking small breaks on it this month. Why? Let's proceed to the Other Projects section.

Other Projects:
The couple after Ian is getting some of my attention this month between revisions and edits. This also needs a title and the cover process will start soon as well.
- If you're a newsletter subscriber, then you saw in the April 1st edition that I mentioned a project that might just be a newsletter exclusive. This month, I'm also working on revisions for this. I don't have a timeline available for this just yet. That's also something I'm hoping to figure out this month, but I'll definitely keep everyone posted! :)

WIP Progress Report (#12)

To recap, these "progress reports" are basically a way for y'all to know a little more about what I'm working on and to be able to follow along with the process. The main update will be on my current WIP, but at the end, there will be quick updates on other projects. 

- Title: Untitled
- Genre: Hockey Romance
- Word Count/Goal: 34,971/80,000
- Release Date: Tentatively, early 2017
- Series? Book 2 in the Carolina Rebels series.

This is sort of a double update. First, let's tackle the first book in the Carolina Rebels series, which will release October 4th, has a cover, and is currently available for preorder. Back to Me is officially D-O-N-E with revisions. It's about to lace up its skates and head off to the editor. :D I finished just in time since school starts Monday. I also recently finished picking out the teasers for the book, so next, I'll be putting those together as well as ordering bookmarks for the series.

Second, I've been working on the next book in the series, and I'm in LOVE. There's just something special about this book and these characters. I've laughed, I've cried, I've wanted to hug them both. It's been fun to write so far. I'm cruising right along and right on schedule, which is a relief! 

I'm so excited about this series and I can't wait for y'all to be introduced to the team in October. This new series is going to be so much fun!

Without a Doubt: Chapter Reveal

Last month, I shared the prologue and first chapter of my next New Adult Romance, Without a Doubt. Today, I added the second chapter for you to read. As I said before, every month from now until the release, I'm going to reveal a chapter from the book until you've read the first five chapters.

If you want to read the chapters before I post them on the blog, then you should sign up for my monthly newsletter because my subscribers get the link first.

Without further ado, here is the Prologue-Chapter Two of Emerson and Eva's story. Enjoy!

Emerson Montgomery loves his high school sweetheart, Kelly Price. He'd do anything for her, including agreeing to a break where they'll see other people as he heads off to college. Struggling with the break and guilt over dating other people, Emerson meets Eva, a beautiful, funny, easygoing, and nosey junior.

Eva Harvey chose this particular college with the hopes of fulfilling her own fairytale and falling in love at the same college where her parents met. She does her best to go with the flow and simply see what happens, but Emerson simultaneously causes her to fall in love while making her second guess everything along the way.

There's some things you know without a doubt. However, Eva causes Emerson to doubt everything he believes about his future while he causes her to doubt what's right in front of her. Can they find a way to erase all doubts or will it tear them apart in the process?
Preorder Without a Doubt on iBooks, B&N, or Kobo, and add the book to your to-read shelf on Goodreads. WaD will be uploaded to Amazon later this month.

Don't Miss My Newsletters!

As you know, 2014 brought big changes to my monthly newsletter. I've made another little tweak that I want to tell you about, and I'm going to throw in another reason why you don't want to miss my newsletters! I'm telling you, you are going to want to sign up for them!

Aside from the already awesome perks you receive by subscribing, here is the new change:

In addition to the monthly email on the first of every month, you can elect to receive an email on release days. This way, you can receive all the information about the new book on the day of publication instead of waiting for the next monthly email.

And that's not all!

Subscribers who wish to receive release day emails will be entered into a giveaway. One lucky person will win a swag pack for that new release! And there may just be a signed paperback included. ;) 

But wait! There's more!

You are going to want to sign up before the May newsletter goes out. Why? Well, there's a little book I have releasing in June called You Before Me. Heard of it? Great! I may be sharing the cover and the first chapter with subscribers in the next newsletter. I'll be sharing those next month here on the blog, but not until late May. So if you want to get it first, better sign up!

One last thing!

Because I'll be posting the first chapter here as well, only subscribers will get to read the second chapter of You Before Me before the release. And that leaves only one last infomercial thing to say...

What are you waiting for?! 

See all the perks here and sign up for my monthly newsletter here

P.S. Be on the lookout tomorrow for a new and hilarious hockey commercial.

What is this “WIP” I speak of?

I’ve been talking about my WIP (work in progress) a lot on Facebook lately. I even shared a tiny teaser in December. But who are these characters and what is this WIP about?!

I’ll tell you all about them!

Not really. Sorry.

I’m only going to give you a bit of information. As an awesome perk, my newsletter subscribers already know all this because I told them first in February’s newsletter.

This book is a New Adult Romance standalone featuring female lead, Ryan Kavanaugh, and male lead, Gabe O'Connor. Ryan is a 19 (almost 20) year old college student. Gabe is a 25 year old police officer. This WIP is set in eastern North Carolina and that is all you get to know for now.

Maybe I’ll share more about this pair later this month.

Or maybe I won’t.

You’ll just have to wait and find out.
