Campus Cravings is being retired on January 1st (last chance to get all the stories as one low-priced bundle!), and I am re-releasing WINNING BRACKET as a stand-alone story complete with BRAND NEW bonus epilogue story. WINNING BRACKET & the bonus story WINNING WEDDING will be out January 13th at all major retailers.

My Head May Explode in 2015 (and other good news!)

My 2015 is starting to look a little crazy. The good kind of crazy. First, #PortlandHeat launches in the Spring.

 BakedFreshDeliveredFast2 Served Hot.ebook

 

Served Hot is coming 3/3/2015. I love this cover almost as much as I love this book. I can’t wait to kick this series off.  Baked Fresh arrives 4/14/2015. This baker-with-a-heart-of-gold story is a friends-to-lovers tale, and I know I shouldn’t play favorites, but this couple… Delivered Fast is coming on 5/26/2015. I don’t want to say”wrapping up the series” because I’m really hoping to sell a book 4 at some point! (And each book totally stands alone. I have very minimal interaction between the different sets of heroes. They can be read in any order!)

In August, TREBLE MAKER is coming your way. My a cappella singing reality show LONG book otherwise known as #kinkyvirginhero finally found a title and a home with Kensington!

Also coming in 2015: My shorts from the Campus Cravings and Unconditional Surrender bundles will be released on their own with bonus epilogues. I already commissioned covers for them and I’m excited to share once I have a better idea of the release dates.

And if it finds a home, #ChristmasCamper may come out in late 2015 to cap off the year. It’ll be going out on submission soon, so fingers crossed!

This Call Story Brought to You By Social Media

Portland Heat Coming Soon

One of my favorite things is writers’ call stories. I also love birth stories and wedding stories–basically give me a narrative about a big, life-changing moment and I’m all over it.  But as a writer, I particularly love call stories because they gave me hope that my day would come. So for all those taking the long slow road, I salute you. Way back in 2005, I finished my first book and attended RWA Reno. I went to the Kensington publishing signing and got stars in my eyes–and a rejection letter a few months later. Fast forward to 2014. I was still plugging away and searching for a home for book #9.

When I landed my amazing agent back in January, we set to work getting #kinkyvirginhero ready for submission. But during my agent query wait, I’d written #coffeeshopguys and after seeing me post about the WIP, my agent said to go ahead and send it on even though we hadn’t heard back from the first round of submissions yet.

So I sent her SERVED HOT and a synopsis and she tweeted how excited she was to get a barista hero.  AND I DON’T HAVE A SCREENCAP. Which makes me SAD. Because what happened next?

EPIC.

Peter Senftleben of Kensington SAW the tweet and replied that she should send him the MS right away.

*MUPPET FLAIL*

And I don’t have those tweets either. Probably because I was too busy trying not to FREAK. What happened next was a flurry of Sary reading the manuscript, me making Sary’s awesome suggestions, and us working up series proposals while we waited to hear back from Peter and some of  the editors who had #kinkyvirginhero

Then Peter asked to see THAT book too and my freak factor reached Def Con 9000 as we waited to hear . . . .

YES! 

Sary called me to tell me that Peter wanted Served Hot . . . and being me, I started babbling and thanking her before she got the rest of the news out. He wanted the whole series!

AND . . .

#Kinkyvirginhero (who should have a new, real name very soon) and HIS series.

Seriously. This is where I put a muppet flail gif because I just can’t not.

kermit-flail

I seriously wanted to shout the news from the Burnside Bridge in Portland I was so excited.

But I couldn’t. Because contracts and boring stuff like PATIENCE.

So I waited.

And waited.

And Sary did the AWESOME agent thing and worked on all the details. ALL THE DETAILS. She is superwoman.

And finally, all the details lined up and I got to squeal all over twitter and facebook. And without social media, this deal would never have happened.

New Website Reveal

I decided I wanted something with a bit more color for my website and something that more accurately reflects my “brand” of fun, light, heartwarming, yet sexy romances. So I installed themify’s Parallax theme, customized it, and then purchased some AMAZING graphics from Winterheart Designs, run by the fabulous m/m author Lex Valentine. She’s responsible for my great new twitter and facebook  looks too, including this awesome facebook header:

I have an agent!

Back in 2005, I sent my first agent query. Fast forward through hundreds of rejections and with book project #9, I finally landed an agent with my query for CHOIRBOYS otherwise known as #kinkyvirgin hero on twitter and facebook.

I’m delighted to announce that I signed with Saritza Hernandez of the Corvisiero Literary Agency.

And hopefully, I’ll have more big things to announce SOON!

Move Me is Out Now!

Add to Goodreads Buy on AmazonBuy on ARe Buy on Ellora's CaveBuy for Nook
And it’s already gotten a great review from Books, Books, and More Books!

You can read a Chapter One excerpt here.

Move Me has a release date!

Yay! After a long wait, I’m so excited to share with you the cover for my next Ellora’s Cave release, Move MeI’m returning to Ashbury, this time for a story featuring Jill Evans, the best friend of Bree from Return to SenderMove Me will release July 10, but you can add it to your Goodreads to-read list now!

moveme_msrMark and Jill Evans have an enviable marriage—great kids, nice house and a loving relationship. But lately, Jill can’t escape the feeling that things have gotten a bit stale. Mark’s been working long hours and she misses the days when their bed was used for more than folding laundry.

When Mark reveals that he’s landed a big new client—and a chance to move the family to France for a year—Jill objects and sparks a passionate stand-off. Mark proposes a sexy bet to settle their disagreement about moving, and his wife can’t wait for the games to begin. The battleground is the bedroom, and it’s a no-holds-barred war to see who moves first.

Sold!

AnnabethComingSoonI just finalized the contract details with Ellora’s Cave and I’m thrilled to announce that I’ve sold my second book to them. Like Return to Sender, Move Me is set in the suburban town of Ashbury. It features Jill and Mark Evans who showed up in Return to Sender. I wanted to write a marriage-at-a-crossroads story with a lot of heat and heart–and without any discussion of cheating. I can’t wait to share an official blurb and cover with you soon! We’re hoping for a release some time this Spring.

P.S. The sinful cream puffs–and their surly baker–show up again in this book!
