Update and Cover art ^_^

Hey guys, it’s been awhile since my last blogpost – make sure to follow me on twitter for a bit more news and mini-updates from me.

So, what’s been happening since last time? First of all, the first of my Pack Leaders books has been released in German ^_^ yay! For any of you who are interested in the German language version, you can buy it here. The second book will be released on January 6th and the third on February 17th.

As for the fourth one, which has yet to be released in English, has recently been completed and submitted to Siren-Bookstrand (about two weeks ago). It took a while to complete the last Pack Leaders book: Harley – Protecting his pack. And no wonder… it ended up being almost twice as long as the other three. (Cody was the longest at approx 26.000 words, while Harley’s story ended at about 40.500 words) Good thing I’ve never had anyone complain about my stories being too long before. Besides, it’s the last one and I needed to make sure to tie up loose ends and make sure Harley and Win got the story they deserved.

Other news (and another cover) – Things are moving along on the Solomon’s Pride end of things. The Link that Binds is currently being formatted for publication and I should have a release date for that one not long after that is done. Hopefully, it won’t be too far off now, but at least I can share with you the cover!

So what am I up to now?

Those of you who keep tabs on my Works in Progress (WIP) page on my blog know that the mysterious book 1 of a trilogy (which had been on the page forever) and which has had a substantial wordcount (since that same forever – almost – pretty much) has started to grow longer. This was the story I initially started writing, when I first began writing MM stories and I’ve always kinda considered it my baby. However, I got sidetracked when Solomon’s Pride popped into my head, so it’s been left untouched for quite some time (though it has never been far from my mind.) So this is my project for now, The Hunting Party, book 1 of The Full Moon Rituals series. Carefully, on the side next to it, I have my final Solomon’s Pride book which I’m ready to jump on as soon as things start moving with the other Pride books.

As far as my Full Moon Rituals books go, I’m not planning on writing them all in a row. They will be fairly complete stories with little to no cliffhanger situations (definitely not anything major), but I’m thinking I’ll write and complete book 1 now, then another book (Quite possibly the final Solomon’s Pride book, or a stand-alone), then Full Moon Rituals #2, then another stand-alone, and then finally FMR #3.

As you may have seen a lot of new ideas have made their way to my WIP page this year, most of them stand alones, and the majority of them have complete plots, so I do want to make sure they get written inbetween things.

I definitely won’t have any issues finding things to write in 2017 and I’m looking forward to the new year.

 

Update time :)

So, my work on the last Pack Leaders book have gone a bit slow, but I can just barely see the end of it now. But it’s gonna be long, at least compared to the other three. At least 30k words. It’s gonna get done this month though and hope I can get it published before the new year kicks in.

It’s the last Pack Leaders book so it’s important I get it right πŸ™‚

However there are some other news regarding my Pack Leaders books that I want to share with you ^_^

My Pack Leaders books will be translated and published in German with Me and The Muse publishing!

It’s an exciting time indeed! I for one can’t wait.

We have some approximate dates for the release of the 3 first ones, which will be in the end of November, end of December and end of January. And the 4th of course, will be decided later on after it is completed.

The going ons :)

Figured it was time for a update on things.

First of all, I don’t really have any new news on Solomon’s Pride. The edits are done for The Link that Binds, but the cover is still in progress and I have no idea on a publishing date.

Currently I am working on finishing up my Pack Leaders series, the third book: Cody – Crashing the party is being released on Wednesday this week (August 3rd).

I am currently working on the fourth and final book which will be Harley’s story. Not quite sure how long it will be, but most likely around 30.000 words (give or take a few thousand words – though definitely not shorter than Cody’s story) I hope to have it completed before the end of August and I’ll make sure to update as I go along about possible dates and such.

After this, I pretty much think I know what my next project will be. I will be spending some time on the final Solomon’s Pride book, hoping that suddenly all of my other Solomon’s Pride books will be published without a hitch πŸ˜› (Fat chance, but I can dream). Besides writing on this I will also begin a new series, currently listed on my WIP page under Blood Demons, though think more vampire-ish rather than demony πŸ˜› Haven’t got a clue if I’ll stay with this as a series name… it needs something more I thnk.

This will be a more fantasy inspired series and can be read as stand alones. So far I have fairly complete plotlines for two books in this series.

I want to tell you more, but at the same time, I don’t want to spoil so soon in the process. So I think that will have to wait. Sorry. The books will be about 30.000-40.000 words, so pretty much Solomon’s Pride length rather than Pack Leaders length.

If I get stuck on any of the books, I’ll probably jump over at The Hunting Party (Full Moon Rituals #1) This is a 3 book series starring wolf shifters. I love it and hate that I haven’t done more about it πŸ˜› I have over 20.000 words on the first one already and fairly complete plot lines for the other two.

I can’t rule out that I’ll end up prioritizing this one… It’s not the plan… but it might happen.

Other news:

The third book of the story has been submitted and there has also been some movement regarding my Solomon’s Pride books. I don’t have a date yet for the re-release of the Link that Binds (Or a cover πŸ˜› ) but things are moving so hopefully I’ll find out soon and rest assured, I will let you know when I do πŸ™‚

Until then, I’m going to work on the fourth and final Pack Leaders book, because Harley needs some love too ^_^

Cliffhanger/Loose threads warnings anyone?

I’ve been thinking this is something I should start doing. A lot of the things I write, especially the series, even though each book have their own couple, tend to have a sort of ‘to be continued’ type of end. I’ve seen this quite a few times when someone explains giving me a low score and I get it. It’s nothing new, but then I do my stories my way πŸ˜‰

So for those it may concern – My Pack Leaders series will consist of four books – the first one was just published, the second is in editing and I’m close to submitting the third book and I am looking forward to properly start on the fourth one by the end of the month.

In this series there is a big story arch that covers all four books and smallerΒ  arches for each individual book, at least in the beginning, the further into the story you get it becomes more and more about the big arch. – SO if you really hate waiting on loose ends, you probably should wait till all four books are out to read them (Though I do recommend pre-ordering because of the discount.) Luckily the books are coming, so you won’t be waiting long. It just comes out one book at a time.

Some good news though for the loose end dislikers. I have several items on my WIP page that won’t cause you any distress πŸ˜‰

As I mentioned in a previous post, I’m not yet sure what my next project will be after Pack Leaders. However I’ve been having several new ideas lately and I can pretty much guarantee that the next book will be a book you can pick up, read and not wait for a continuation (so that people won’t be bothered by red herrings, which aren’t really red herrings because they’re part of the big plot). This works out great for me as well as I have so many ideas and by writing books like these, I can jump a bit back and forth between series and if a new storyline fitting within those series pop up I can just jump in without the preassure of ‘finishing’ the storyline from the previous book.

Now then, I have other work to do. I keep getting distracted πŸ˜› *scolds self*

Please let me know if these ‘Loose ends-‘ or ‘Cliffhanger warnings’ is something you’d like for me to keep doing πŸ™‚

Wish you all the best πŸ™‚
