Lisa's Bear Has a New Look!

 

Lisa's Bear, book 1 in the Bryant Station Curves series, has a new cover and revised/added material.

It is currently available at Amazon and KOBO, but will soon be available at Barnes and Noble and iBooks.


This novella is a second edition and contains some new content.


Lisa Mathers dreams of having a family of her own, but the odds of having a husband and children are against her. She attracts the wrong men, and she has a lot of extra padding on her curves.


David Anderson is not happy with his nephew signing him up to chaperone the school dance, but meeting his mate changes everything. Now, he has to convince Lisa they are mates, and tell her he is a bear shifter.


Another female has her eyes on David and will do anything to make him hers, even if she has to kill Lisa.


Will Lisa accept David and his bear as her mate?


Will David be able to keep his mate safe?



The other books in the series will soon have new covers and revised content.

Mondays and Projects


Mondays... The beginning of a new week and a chance to fresh start.


Last week is over and finished. If you’re still working on projects from last week, it’s a chance to take a fresh look at it.

One project I was working on last week, I finished last night. The first draft of the outline for Onyx’s story is complete. I have a rough idea of what the story will be from start to the end. 

The outline needs work. There are several scenes I need to smooth out the rough spots. The overall outline needs more details. I’m thinking of rewriting my notecards (using larger ones than the normal size I used) and adding more detail to each scene and chapter idea.

I’m excited and can’t wait until I write Onyx and Willow’s story! The direction Willow took me in the outline surprised me, but in a good way. 

Before I write Onyx, I want to get at least the rough outline completed for Diablo (the 4th book) and the 5th book. 

I will release these three books in 2023. I don’t have release dates for them. 

And why not?

Onyx will be the first full book I will write as a full-time author. I’m in unchartered territory for me. I finished Phoenix as a full-time author, and wrote the bulk of it during this time, but I started writing Phoenix part time or less while I was still working my crazy full time day job. With Onyx, I’ll get a good idea how long it will take me to write a 70K+ novel.

Another project I’m working on is the revisions and new covers for the Bryant Station Curves Series. I need to do a final reading of Lisa’s Bear, and then I will upload the revised manuscript and a new cover. I will then start work on Chasing Tara once Lisa's Bear is uploaded. 

Mondays are new beginnings.

What are you working on or reading?

How is your week starting out?

November 2022 Updates



October was a busy month for me. I still can’t believe it’s gone and November is here. 


In October, LUCIFER (Brimstone Heat, Book 1) received updates and a new cover. PHOENIX (Brimstone Heat, Book 2) released toward the end of October. Both books are available on Amazon. In the next week, I will upload them to more online bookstores. 

 

I’m excited about PHOENIX. It is a longer book than I write. I enjoyed writing about Phoenix and Savanna. 

I’ve updated the 2023 listing on the UPCOMING page. All the titled books are in the plot/outline stage. My goal is to get all four outlines completed, and then I’ll start writing. I’m working on Onyx’s outline. 

The Bryant Station Curves series is getting a make-over. Each book will go through revisions/edits and receive a new cover. LISA’S BEAR will be the first book to go through this process. So don’t be surprised when books disappear from the online stores. The ebooks will be back with the updates.

Soon, I will work on paperbacks for all my books.

I’m enjoying writing full time. It was always a dream to be a full-time author, and I’m getting to do it. Thank you for helping to make that dream happen!

Here in the United States, Thanksgiving is about three weeks away. Not sure what we’re doing this year. I’ve started thinking about Christmas. Last year’s Christmas tree didn’t make it. Last week, I purchased a new tree. It’s in the garage waiting for me to set it up. I also bought a few more ornaments to add to the growing collection. 

November's calendar is filling up. It's going to be a busy month.

The last couple of years, I've sent out Christmas cards. For anyone interested, I will post a sign up form on my blog and other social media sites.

Fall and Changes

 It's FALL!!!

In my part of Texas, the mornings are starting to be cooler. For the past few mornings, I've been able to sit outside and work on edits. I love fall.  Halloween is just around the corner. New Halloween movies are coming out.


One of the best changes I've made in my life, is that I retired from the day job and am now a full time writer. We moved. I setup a new office. It's smaller than what I was in, but it's workable. I'm searching for my Halloween decorations. I have no idea what box they were put in, or where the box is. I've finished writing the draft of PHOENIX. On a sad note, I had to put to sleep one of my cats. My other kitty has become a clingy baby. She follows me around the house even more than she did before her partner in crime left us.

As of today, LUCIFER is not available in online I've unpublished it. It will be back in October with a new cover and a new blurb. I've taken the book through revisions and edits to make it better. I need to format the ebook and write the blurb. A new paperback will be uploaded at a later date. The interior of the paperback needs to be formatted. 

PHOENIX is in revision/edits. I'm excited about this story!

My Bryant Station Curves series will be unpublished in October. The books are going through revisions and will have new covers. Starting in November or December, each book in this series will be re-released in ebook. Paperbacks will follow.

Changes are coming!

 


I'm sorry I've been so quiet on social media, and I'm sorry i've kept you waiting for new stories. The day job has made so many new demands, it's left me mentally and physically drained. But, in the next few months, changes are coming. Good changes. Changes that will allow me more time for writing. Yeah!!! Once the changes happen, I'll be able to talk more about them.


I'm working on Phoenix's story. I'm just a third of the way through the story and at 22,000 words. Yes, this is a longer book.

Sometime in June, I will do a cover reveal and some sneak peaks. My writing has been slow, but I'm so excited about the story!


So how does 2022 look so far...


Phoenix will be released this year. (Both Onyx and Diablo's stories are in plotting stages. They will come out in 2023.)

I have on more book in the Starlight Bar series and then it will be finished. Book 5 needs to come out around Christmas because the story is set around Christmas. So as soon as I finish and release Phoenix, I plan to dive into that book.

I've started revisions and new covers for the Bryant Station Curves series. I plan to un-publish the series and then start re-releasing the updated versions. 


Question...

How do you feel about preorders?

Love them. 

Hate them.

Tell me your thoughts.
