Writing: Monthly update for April

Reunited Facebook group image.png

A little late on the delivery but better late than never, right? April was a weird month, with the lockdown and the weather and the new release. I don’t know about you, but my moods were all over the place! In the end though, it wasn’t all that bad. I hope you’re holding up as well or better! ♥

Current Romance WIPs:

Running into Trouble.png

FORCING FATE (Fate #4) – This is on the top of my to-do list! I’m already about a third of the way done with the first draft and if it keeps going this well,  I might make it my next release. More about that in next month’s update.

RUNNING INTO TROUBLE (an age gap romance) – If I decided to make FORCING FATE my next release, then I won’t get back to revising this for until June or July.




REUNITED – RELEASED April 16th! Get your copy now!

Lia hopes spending a romantic week in Cancun for her friend’s wedding will result in her coming home with a wedding of her own on the horizon. But her matrimonial dream comes crashing down when she finds her boyfriend cheating on her with the next-door neighbor. Now, not only is Lia out the seven years she spent with this jerk, she’s without a date to fill the seat for which her friend’s fiancé footed the bill.

Or is she?

The last person Lia expects to see while waiting for her flight is her childhood best friend. Though she barely recognizes Avery, all grown up and hotter than hell, he’s here promising her the best time of her life, like no time at all has passed.

What could go wrong?

Tropes you can look forward to:
• Friends to Lovers,
• Slow release alpha,
• All grown up,
• Light fake engagement,
• Fling,
• Unrequited Love

SECRET FANTASY PROJECT – I don’t want to say too much more about this because I don’t think you’re going to see it until 2021. What I will say is, I’ve brought an old friend back from the dead. And if you’ve been following me since the beginning, you can probably guess what this is. And I bought a cover for it, so it’s DEFINITELY happening!

SEXY SHORT STORIES – There really needs to be more time in the day. I want to write these but I’m having a hard time justifying spending time on these when I could be writing the novels I’ve already promised.

April was a pretty productive month! I finished revising the SECRET FANTASY PROJECT (currently with alpha readers.) And got a good start on FORCING FATE.

Read in April:

Didn’t get nearly as much read as I thought I did. I started a few books that I didn’t finish. Hopefully get through them this month!


Sharing is Caring:


REUNITED had the unbelievable pleasure of sharing its release day with the wonderful Teagan Hunter’s new release, A SLICE OF LOVE! Another sexy af rom-com, this novella is a companion to her Slice series. Teagan’s books are so much fun to read and she’s an amazing person, to boot! Make sure to check out all her books!

The End:

Thanks for reading. Stay safe! Keep moving forward!

Read the first three books in the Fate series today!


Also, check out this Stand-alone novella! Now available!
