Update first, gossip at the end. 🙂
Okay, so I’ve been kinda MIA the last few weeks, but there’s a good reason. Strike that… it’s an annoying reason, lol. I’m in the middle of moving. You know, I would rather write a love scene between Henry and Audrey than have to move. Okay, okay, I take it back! It’s not THAT bad.
The move itself is happening in stages. Right now I’m in the “on the phone all the time” and “making a million little decisions about what to keep” stage. Seriously, I’m thinking about donating everything except for what can fit in a small paper bag. In a couple of weeks is the “putting stuff in a van” stage, followed by the “storage” stage, the “living with my mom” stage (arguably the most difficult stage because we can really get into trouble together!), the “finding a new place to live” stage and the “unpacking” stage. It’s a multi-month move that will likely strrrrrreeeeetch into next year. In retrospect, I should have put it off for another six months.
What does this mean for the stories? Well, I used to get books out every 4 weeks, but I’m giving myself an extra week with every title starting in November.
Okay, I know what you’re thinking now. There’s this shark thing in progress, and there’s more bounty hunter tentatively slated for the end of October… how are you going to do all that as well as this move? The answer is… magic!
Shark #2 will be out in a week. Barring internet problems, Shark #3 will be out at the end of October, By a Dangerous Man #6 in the first half of November. There’s also a new series, Executive Toy, to debut in two weeks. It’s not Elle (actually, she’s nothing like Elle), but a whole new company, a new set of bosses. That one will be an orphan for a bit, and I’ll just publish more when I have time, no set schedule (kinda like how I did Office Toy). The first story has been finished for some time, and I wanted to get it out there for my office foursome fans.
Here’s the gossip. I wrote a post over at JP Barnaby’s blog called “Ten Things You Don’t Know About My Characters.” Some of it you might have guessed, some of it’s stuff that happened AFTER a series ended. It’s just for fun, so… enjoy!
