Back to the Future

September 24, 2013 | Teaser Tuesday

back-to-the-future

I’m gonna suffer from time warp whiplash, but I needed a project between edits. The problem with working on the backlist is I love the characters and the structure, but I want to make about million changes in execution. This calls for nearly as big a time commitment as writing a new story :ermm:

Making the story the best it can be is more important than reissuing them quickly. But I’m very sorry there’s going to be delay before Joon’s Temptation is ready for an editor’s tender eyes.
Before digging into the major revisions that story needs, I need to finish the edits for Simply Irresistible, and third mech warriors’ adventure…

With a little luck there will still be three releases this year. I’ll keep you posted!

Deep in the dungeon

September 10, 2013 | Teaser Tuesday

Fortaleza_medieval

While working on the first contemporary romance since Dangerous Surrender, I wanted to create a dungeon worthy of the characters. This led down several promising threads, including the castle pictured above. Doesn’t look very contemporary does it? The medieval fortress is one of several I melded together to create the Crucible, an exclusive BDSM club.

Liam and Tiana meet at the dungeon in Simply Irresistible coming soon from Ellora’s Cave. :heart:

Part of the fun of writing for me is deciding where to set the adventure. Do you have a favorite setting?

Deep in the stacks

September 3, 2013 | Teaser Tuesday

A Scarlet Past resides on my hard drive, but the material behind the story is crammed in a three ring binder. A couple of weeks ago when I submitted the tale to Loose Id, I leafed through my research notes.

Here are a few snippets from the files: Central Park History along with The Park and the People: A History of Central Park began to bring the location alive in my head.

I found this wonderful article complete with vintage photographs at Curbed. The snapshot above shows a view of The Sherry Netherlands Hotel, The Savoy Plaza Hotel and the Plaza Hotel from Central Park. I was thrilled to find it since a great deal of the story action takes place in Central Park and the Plaza Hotel.

Climate Stations allows me to check historical weather conditions in Central Park.

The Fedora Lounge is crammed with vintage style from the forties.

Rita Hayworth is how I picture Vivian
Liza

Clark Gable is close to Fergus, although ideally he’d be wearing a fedora… :wink:

Fergus

I love reading historical romances, because they let visit a different era. Writing them works every bit as well. :heart:

Do you have a favorite time period?

Summer is here and the writing is slooow, although editing has been fast and furious… :ninja:

How’s your summer going?

A Promise of Amber

August 13, 2013 | Teaser Tuesday

EL_APromiseofAmber_banner

You Gotta Read Reviews loved A Promise of Amber! The kind reviewer said: “The love between Amber and her men was a beautiful thing to see. When the three work together there is nothing that will stand in their way. I loved seeing Tru and Amber prove to Hunter that he is a vital part of their bond and that they would do anything for him even if it meant their lives. I am really enjoying this series and hope to visit with the Treeland pack again.”

You can find the entire review here

The review tickled me, because I’ve been working on A Scarlet Past, coming this fall from Loose Id!

Now that I have your attention, I’m actually talking about manuscripts. :lol:

loowis_comingsoon_coversm

Last week I dusted off A Scarlet Past, the prequel to the Treeland Pack Tales and sent it off to my Loose Id editor and they sent back a contract!

PS The couple’s D/s relationship is central to the story. The power exchange is more complicated than usual since both are Alphas. :wink:
