Count Down to "An Ignited Passion"

As the day draws near, my editor and I are doing re-reads like crazy. It always seems as if WORD has it in for us though. We will change something more than once, save it, come back and find the same mistake. WTF? There are some days I want to shoot my WORD document. More than two pairs of eyes look over the manuscripts, I'd like to thank Kimberly Webb-Balan for the proof reading. She is the one that reads the stories first, tells me whether or not it flows and if she would pay for it. (As if she wouldn't, hmf!)

Jenjo is my chief editor and the final word on all manuscripts. As she works for a newspaper as an editor, you don't need to ask why she is the FINAL on all manuscripts. (lol)

Theresa Webber not only makes my book covers, but also does read-through's of the final manuscripts, catching whatever Jenjo and I missed.

Jennifer Fornes is one of my photographers and had the honor of photographing the three guys that grace the covers.

I have to thank Randy and Joseph for reading the sex scenes. Joseph has given his thumbs up for the sex scenes on not only "Ignited" but "Irish Wishes" (Wayne/Conner story)  as well. It helps to have the approval of a gay man on male/male sex scenes. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate women telling me they were scorching, but until I hear it from a gay man, I'm a bit apprehensive.

Last but not least, my military boys who give me the low-down on all things military related. I want to thank Tony and Gareth, two men who were thick-skinned, no nonsense, badass, cold, unfeeling assholes with the  "I am not falling in love" mentality -- who fell hard. They are my Mateo and Vince. I am blessed to have such fabulous people in my life.

A big thanks to all my readers, I would not be where I am today without you and the aforementioned people. I hope to only deliver the best to you and I hope to bring you many, many more in the Assassin/Shifter stories.

Thanks for sticking by me!!!!

  1. It's great that you and your editors and friends have worked so hard. As a reader of the Assassin/Shifter stories, I really appreciate and love all your efforts. It's great that Ignited Passion will be out soon and to hear a bit about the story I've been waiting so long for ever since they appeared in the story (Wayne and Conner). Thank you so much for all these lovely stories with beautiful characters. You bring me into their world the second I start reading :)

  2. Thank you so much for your kind words!! Gives me that boost I need to keep going! I love writing my boys! They are a part of me and I eat, sleep and play with them everyday! There are two more books before Wayne and Conner's story, I hope you'll enjoy them as much as the others! ;)

  3. Thank you so much for letting me know about when Wayne and Conner's story will come out. I definitely will enjoy the two books before theirs since all the characters link so well together. It amazes me that everyone is like a family and previous characters always appear in each new book. I don't know a lot of authors who put so much effort into including characters from their previous books. I love how the Skull Blasters are mentioned a lot. All the boys are so awesome and every time I read a book from the series I wish I could meet people just like all of them :)

  4. Thank you!! I always think that a sequel is never as good as the original, which is why I always bring back the original characters from the first books. I want to know how they are, what they are doing and if they are still happy. Writing these books makes that possible. I hope you enjoy "An Ignited Passion" As much as I enjoyed writing it!!

  5. Just finished Ignited Passion. Excellent!!!! Loved it!!! As with all of your books, I read the sneak peak to Reflash. Now, I want more. Do you have an anticipated release date for Tucker and Wesley's stories? Also, who is next after these four? Cannot wait for Wayne and Conner's stories. Thank you for sharing these stories and making me fall in love with your boys.

I love them too! <3

  7. Thanks for the info and no fair making me wait until the end of reflash to find out who comes next ;(. I sure hope it's Devin and Andrei. Your boys are awesome. Riley, Mateo, Wyatt and Dakota are probably my favs but I really love them all. Oh and thank you for writing parenting like John, Joe and Nadine. I think everyone should have parents who love unconditionally.

  8. You're very welcome! Sadly, not all parents are like that. Don't forget Keegan, Josh and Derek's mothers love their son's! I know, I am unfair, but I like to keep my readers on their toes and wanting more, more, MORE! ;)

  9. Believe me when I say, I always want more. I'm always anticipating the next book and the next couple and wondering about the previous couples. While I wait, I reread all the previous books :)
