DISCOVERY MOON – Gladstone Shifters Book 5

Progress report: Working on chapter 34 – 112,100 words.

****Last update: July 3, 2022****

Still making steady progress. There’s a lot to say in the final chapters, and I don’t want to rush it and risk leaving things unresolved. The book should answer all the important questions and leave the reader with a satisfied sigh when they reach “THE END”.

It is possible that some smaller story threads will have to be explored in the next book. It depends on how long this one turns out to be, and I’m not sure yet. Either way, the reader won’t be kept hanging forever, but there may be a time gap between the events of book five and the beginning of book six.

RELEASE DATE: most likely early August. I’ll let you know here if/when that changes. Stay tuned!

Check back often to monitor my progress.


Future Projects:

Holiday Mates – Book 2

I intend to start working on this following the release of Discovery Moon. As it stands right now, the next book will probably be Valentine’s Day. This time around will be Aiden Romero’s romance, the human owner of your favorite candy shop in Bear Creek.

This may sound strange, but the choice of holiday and timing of release will depend on how much lead time I have to write and publish the story. A minimum four-month window is needed prior to the intended holiday. If I have more than that, I may write the story and then hold it for release at the proper time. It’s going to be tricky, but I will update my progress here.


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 awesome stuff I have planned. Great space opera without all the singing!

NOTE – I’m HUNGRY to write some Sci-Fi, but must finish the other two series I’m working on before that happens. Yeah, it’s frustrating!


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!


Canceled – Retail Men Series

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 in June of 2020).

Reader feedback tells me fans really appreciated the older characters in Green’s Thumb, as there aren’t a lot of books out there for this demographic. I’m actively gathering information for future silver romances with characters over 50, whether stand-alones or a series. There is no set timeline for this project.


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, zombies, or mobsters. 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.
