I’ve written this update several times, but the prior versions were too depressing. The take-home message is I’ve hit such an extreme level of burnout/exhaustion (because of health issues/increasing family responsibilities/work deadlines) that while filling out medical forms at the doctor’s office yesterday, I completely blanked on the date. And it wasn’t just the day and month.
I couldn’t remember what year it was…
It was a gut punch I couldn’t ignore. I’ve never been good at prioritizing self-care, but it’s not optional at this point.
Going on a no-kid vacation with my hubby should help. Although we’ve had to cancel the last three of our previously planned getaways, we’re boarding that plane in two weeks come hell or high water!
The weather is heating up. Quarantine is over! Who’s ready to party???
Count me in! Hubby and I are even thinking of taking a vacation without the kids (something we’ve never done before). Nothing too crazy. Just a long weekend somewhere (not sure if it will be at the hotel down the street, or if we will be daring enough to fly off to Vegas or California), but I’m already so excited.
Are you a big fan of the holidays? Normally, I’m not. I usually skip over the Hallmark holiday movies and only begrudgingly put up decorations. In my defense, it’s hard to summon holiday joy when the production of that joy takes so much time and effort (decorating, shopping, wrapping, planning, baking, cleaning, and hosting events for family members who don’t always get along).
But 2020 is different. And, with how difficult this year has been, we all need some of that holiday joy. I’ve already got the decorations up and holiday music is playing non-stop. 🤣 In between Hallmark movies, I’ve been finalizing edits to Claiming Her Beasts Book One (be sure to preorder it at 99 cents before the price goes up to 3.99)!
I’m also building up my review teams. If you are interested in reading and reviewing advanced copies of my books please fill out this form.

Since having to cancel my pre-orders (due to the demands of helping my kiddos through distance learning) I’ve been struggling with how to best use the tiny bit of writing time I have in a day.
Ultimately, I’ve decided to rewrite an older series of mine (Heaven in Hell) as a reverse harem paranormal romance for a couple reasons. One, because the series is my all time favorite (I adore the characters). Two, I always envisioned the story as a reverse harem. Three, because the story wasn’t yet finished and the ending is going to epic!
This post-apocalyptic series is set in the same world as the Claiming Her Mates series and the main characters of both series (Lee and Havana) are both dancers at the same club. In fact, readers first met Lee in Claiming the Nanny.
Expect high heat, sexy Alpha (and beta) males, shifters, and some paranormal creatures you’ve never seen before! The picture in the header above is a sneak peak at what will be the new cover for the first book in the series. I don’t have a release date, but you all will be the first to know!
I hope you are safe and well in these trying times. My family is on nearly a hundred days of social distancing and I’ve almost forgotten what “normal” looks like.
To cope with all the craziness, I’ve been reading new series. I always rejoice when I find the series has been completed (completed series are like gold)!
To make it easier for readers to find my completed paranormal romance series, I’ve decided to release the Claiming Her Mates Box Set!
For a limited time only, the prequel (Claiming the Nanny) will be included in the boxed set along with all three books in the Claiming Her Mates series as well as a never published super sexy bonus scene =) I’ve also discounted the price because I know times are tough.
Next month, I’ll be releasing Claiming the Wardens (previously titled Reforming the Witch), the prequel to another steamy reverse harem paranormal romance series. You can find more about it (along with some giveaways, new releases, and freebies) below: https://preview.mailerlite.com/f2x5a3
