Current Project

Abundant Moon – Gladstone Shifters Book 3

You’ll never guess what happened – I changed my mind! My current MS has morphed from a shorter interim story to a novel of its own. Therefore, I have changed the title from Moon Pups, Book 2.5 to Abundant Moon, Book 3.

Though I’m going to miss my June 30th deadline, I’m closing in on the ending at last! The romance portion is finished and all but one pup has arrived. I still have about 5-10% to write, and the word count stands at 47,000+. I now have the beautiful cover in hand, and you’re going to love it! Look for it here in the next couple of weeks or go the dedicated book page. I’m hoping for an early August release date. Exciting!

I’m trying something new with this MS by tracking my actual writing time. Why? I’m curious how how many hours it takes to finish the story, and it will give me a baseline figure to use when estimating the timeline for future books. It may also help when explaining to voracious readers why they have to wait months for the next in series, etc. Believe me, I’d love to crank them out faster but real life won’t allow it.

Next up:

FORBIDDEN MOON Gladstone Shifters Book 4

The plot for book four was set up in Traitor’s Moon, so I already have the basic bones laid out. I don’t work with highly detailed outlines, so I really don’t know how the story will unfold completely until I write it. I can tell you that the Gladstone family will be facing new challenges and welcoming at least one new mate to the pack. This one will be Jonah’s story, Ben’s youngest brother and the pack Omega. Release date is uncertain at this time.

Future Projects:

Return of the Draman

The sequel to Rise of the Draman is bubbling away on the back burner. The plan is to craft it as a collection of shorter works as I did with book one, with Croft a bit older (perhaps pre-teen). I don’t have a start date for the project yet, but it looks like mid-2021.

####

Scattered Humanity

I envision this as a series of Sci-Fi novels or novellas with a common backstory linking them together. Cool aliens, awesome new worlds, and humans in distress. You won’t believe some of the cool things I have planned. Great space opera without all the singing!

#### 

Curiosity Shoppe

This will be a series of shorter works with a mix of genres: fantasy, paranormal, Sci-Fi, and romance. Pay a visit to the shoppe and pick up a little something to take home. Every customer is guaranteed to get more than their money’s worth! And what about that mysterious shopkeeper and her “cat”? Irresistible reading in delicious bites!

Holidays anyone?

I have toyed with the idea of  something seasonal for Christmas or Valentines. It would require a lot of advance planning to get it written, edited and launched at the appropriate time, but it’s a good back-burner idea. There’s certainly no lack of romance ideas in my files! I’m thinking something with older men or perhaps bear shifters – because who doesn’t like some serious cuddling?

####

My Galactic Neighborhood novels need revision, more editing, and new covers. I have no idea when I will have the time or money to pursue this project. Meanwhile, the books will be available as-is.

Canceled – Retail Men 

Green’s Thumb is now a standalone, but it, too, requires an overhaul – including significant new material. It remains available for purchase as-is for now. (Cover was changed 6-26-2020).

Reader feedback tells me fans really appreciated a 50+ gay romance, and there aren’t a lot of books out there for this demographic. I’m gathering information for a new series featuring silver characters who find their special someone. It’s my desire to take a realistic and humorous look at life, love and sex for men over 50. Not sure when I can get to it, but I may be able to squeeze in a short stand-alone silver romance for Christmas or Valentines Day.

####

More Paranormal/Fantasy – Future books may include bear and cat shifters, elves, fairies, brownies, genies, giants, merfolk, cupids, and unicorns. I’m eager to write about all of them! (some of these ideas may show up in the Curiosity Shoppe series – see note above).

Types of stories I won’t write

You’ll have to find a different author if you are looking for books with angels, demons, witches, vampires, or zombies. They just aren’t my cup of tea.

Out of Print

My first novel, Second Chance Earth is no longer available for purchase. Why? See my blog post for the explanation.
