A wee bit of exciting news!

Last weekend I had a little chat with my publisher about my upcoming series. Have I mentioned that? If not let me get you up to speed since we've made a few more decisions as of late.  And if so... well keep reading anyway!

So I have a 3 book series soon to be published by Bottom Drawer Publishing.  It's called The Moonlit Nights Series.

Book one is titled Talk to the Moon with Kyle Chase and Sadie Long as star crossed lovers. High school sweethearts who find each other again.  But can all be forgiven?

Book two is titled Moon Over the Bay, starring Nathan Chase, Kyle's best friend, and Jess Dempsey, Sadie's best friend. He doesn't want to be some rich girl's boy toy and she doesn't want to be anyone's sugar mama. Sometimes lust has a mind of it's own.

Book three is titled Secrets of the Moon, with Olivia Niccoli and Evan Stephens.  When a one night stand becomes something much more significant.  Can two strangers handle it?

Recently I completed a short story, 1.5 if you will, to accompany the series as a free read titled Rising of the Sun.  Here we meet a parent from other characters.  Miles Chase, Kyle's dad, and Katherine Niccoli, Olivia's mother, have a chance meeting when Kyle calls in a favor with his dad to attend a work event with his coworker, Katherine.  Little did they know that Miles and Katherine had met before during a weekend of vacation. Do the flames still burn like they did during that hot weekend in Mexico

Rising of the Sun is in my editors hands as we speak and she'll be whipping her red pen of pain, as I call it, all over it to make it awesome.  I've completed the first round edits on book one in the series, and have already submitted the second book.  My publisher and I had a really great conversation and decided to make the series New Adult.  Initially the plan was for Miles and Kat to be book three, but when the pub asked about New Adult I couldn't get the idea out of my head.   I had already had a little side story idea for Kat's daughter so we worked it out and I came up with shifting the daughter to book three and making the mature couple the free read.

The plan is to release the series 6 to 8 weeks apart.  I'm pretty excited about that.  Hopefully I'll have some more solid details soon like a release date and some covers!  Not gonna lie, I'm giddy to see the covers! As is gets closer to release I'll post about the inspirations for each book and the play lists also.  Music is important as one song was the brain child for book one. =)

In the meantime, check out my Pinterest for a peek at what I envision my characters.

Also, my publisher Bottom Drawer Publishing is having a birthday party on their site!  Discounted books and giveaways!  Check them out and some of the free reads and awesome authors they have over there.

Hope you all have a safe and happy Labor Day!
