My name is Cleo, and I’ve been very bad. Before I get to the release schedule (and that should be in quotes), I want to apologize to everyone who has been patiently waiting for new stories. Hell, I’d better also apologize to those who have been waiting impatiently. Life happens, but I should have been more communicative. I wasn’t, and I’m sorry. Although it must be said, you guys are the best, so supportive and kind and no one yelled at me (except playfully, which is my sense of humor, too) or has made me feel anything less than appreciated.
Actually, since you’ve all been so awesome, I think you deserve a present. Maybe for the holidays, maybe sooner. TBD!
Release schedule! Er, well, there isn’t one. A lot of books are getting close to done and I expect to have new releases in the next few months. That said, my time and soul (another word that should be in quotes) are extensively fractured these last… years… due to ongoing family obligations and complications. Planning is tricky.
But here’s a handy guide to what’s coming:
Bounty Hunter (Dangerous Man)? YES, as novels, not serialized seasons
Executive Toy Spinoff? YES… but sharks are much closer to done
Multiple Partner Billionaires (generally speaking)? YES
Fantasy Playland (Sleeping Lady)? Not anytime soon, unfortunately
Dark Shifter Menage Novels (Luring the Pack)? YES, but months and months away
MMF Shifters? YES
New Standalones? YES
More audio versions? YES… but months away
And it must be said that standalone novels are more manageable for me these days. Series require intense concentration, and each real-life interruption makes for artistic chaos, setting me back weeks if not months. Even chocolate doesn’t help much. I know, right??? What this means is that I don’t dare start publishing stories with cliffhangers until the whole thing is basically done. So they’re in progress, but standalones will be faster.
Anyway, dear readers, that’s it for now. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart for not burning me in effigy (or for real). While you’re here, please enjoy the glistening, rock-hard artwork 🙂
