BEAR CREEK CHRISTMAS
Progress report: Working on chapter six – 18,000 words.
This book is the first in the HOLIDAY MATES series! It’s not meant to be like my Gladstone books – filled with action and drama, along with the romance. What I’m going for this time is a simple, sweet tale that is light on the drama, heavy on the relationship, and with a guaranteed HEA. My concern is that readers will be disappointed because it’s so unlike the wolf shifter books.
For one thing, this is a totally new world with a different type of shifter. In addition, it’s set during a major holiday-requiring more warm fuzzies, heart, and tenderness. That being said, I don’t intend to make this a “Hallmark” knockoff. It will contain plenty of steam, as bear shifters are very passionate with their mates!
I hope my worries are for nothing, but as I have been saying all along “bear” with me while I make something special!
Also in progress – Rise of the Draman will be showing up soon as a paper book for print-on-demand publishing. Sorry about the cost, but it’s a very expensive option these days. Some readers, myself included, still love the feel and smell of a paper book (batteries not necessary!). The plan is to offer my Gladstone series in the same manner, though I’m not sure of the timeline.
ELDER MOON – Gladstone Shifters Book 5
This doesn’t really need much in the way of explanation! I have the basic plot points down, but the next story will have a lot going on and my brain needs time to sort it all out. More detail later after I’m done with Bear Creek Christmas.
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 awesome stuff I have planned. Great space opera without all the singing!
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!
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!
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, would benefit from 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.
