My goal for 2018 is to write Chase’s Fire, the next book after Lachlan’s Curse.
A question I often get asked (including by my editor!) is – When’s the next Misfortune Cookie book coming out? Well, if all goes well with Chase’s Fire, the sequel, tentatively titled, Misfortunate Soul, is next.
There is one more book in the Undead Space Initiative series, Dead Girls Don’t Lose, but that won’t be until 2019. Cherry and I need a break from each other.
I hope everyone has a safe and wonderful holiday season.
Also, on 8/23 I’ll be over at – Suzanne Johnson/Susannah Sandlin’s blog. I’ll be sharing my CTConn 2016 experience as an event leader. Suzanne is giving away a copy of Dead Girls Don’t Cry to one commenter.
As usual, this July, my family attended ConnectiCon in Hartford. Unlike other years, I was on a panel and a workshop. For more details on how that happened, see my recent blog post over at Nights of Passion.
The best part of the story is that our panel filled to capacity and the convention asked us to return in 2017. The “us” includes my co-presenters Corrina Lawson and Jamie K. Schmidt.
This year’s featured guests included: Walter Koening, Michael Dorn and Nana Visitor of Star Trek Fame. Also, Sean Astin and John Rhys-Davies (LOTR), Tom Kenny (SpongeBob), Jess Harnell (Animaniacs), and many more.
Last year (2015), my husband, who is NOT an outgoing guy with strangers, managed to make friends with Maurice LaMarche. Before you go, who? He is most famous as the voice of Brain from Pinky and the Brain. However, if you think you’ve never heard his voice, you’d be wrong. Ever listened to a Lexus commercial? Yup that’s him. Watched Frozen or Zootopia (The King and the Godfather mole, respectively). Anyway, he is a super nice man. If you ever do go to a convention and he’s there – go say hello to him!!
This year wasn’t any different. Hubby managed to “bond” with Jess Harnell (who complimented my curls – see the photo and you will understand why). We also made friends with talented comic book artist Steven Geiger and his lovely wife Kristean (Hi guys!!).
Hubby already warned me that come 2017, he might not make any new friends but I’m betting on whatever pheromone he emits continues to work.
I swear, I’m not missing. I’ve just been writing like crazy after some much needed time away.
I’m currently re-writing Over Easy (this is the third time). But that’s not why I’m posting today.
Today, my sixth novel was published.
Lachlan’s Curse is on sale now! If you’re a fan of Sleepy Hollow, druids and romance, then this book is for you. If it’s not your thing, but you know someone who might like it, please do share! Thank you!!
For over two hundred years, Lachlan Gray—druid and last magic wielder of his line—has kept Haven Falls safe from an ancient evil. His sacrifice, eternal imprisonment with his mortal foe, was meant to protect the town and people he loved. After his bones are unearthed and his enemy is accidentally freed, he has no choice but to rise again. Confronted with the modern world and the loss of everyone he knew, he finds solace in the one person who trusts him the least.
Archaeologist Dr. Sara Winslow believes in truth, logic, and cold, hard scientific facts. Hiding from a painful past, she’s more comfortable with ancient history than dealing with the living. The dead can’t lie, cheat or betray her. That is, until she unearths the one skeleton capable of resurrection. Now, she can’t ignore the truth right before her eyes—magic exists, evil is real, and it’s coming to destroy Haven Falls.
To survive, Sara has to trust this sexy stranger and embrace powers she never knew she had. And Lachlan never imagined that a hot blooded woman would make him question his vow to destroy his enemy at any cost. Even united, can their passion survive the evil seeking to tear them apart?
