[Please note: this schedule has been edited since it was first published, because time is a literal joke and also because mysterious but exciting happenings have shifted my plans.]
Salutations, my scrumptious sweet potato!
Do you notice anything different about me? Hmm? Well? Yes, of course you do. I have a new website and it is glorious. Pink, sparkly, full of books, and it belongs to me. I couldn’t ask for more.
But what about you, and what you can ask for? Specifically, from me, in 2019? That is what we are gathered here to discuss. If you want to know my planned publishing schedule for the year, congrats. You found it!
This, I have decided, is my year of bougie behaviour, beginning with this extravagant site, and ending with a bang. But we’ll get to that bang later.
But let’s return to the Ravenswood books for a sec. In April, I will be completely overhauling the entire series. The covers will be dramatically updated to make sure they look as stunning as possible on your bookshelf. So keep an eye out for that grand reveal. It’s gonna be good.
Then, in May, comes my first release of the year: THAT KIND OF GUY. It’s the final book in my Ravenswood series, and you can learn more about it by checking out the book page. But, long story short: older woman, younger man; fake relationship; cute dog. Need I say more? You can shelve it on Goodreads now.
Some time in the summer, my first M/M romance drops. This as-yet-untitled spin-off stars Olumide Olusegun-Keynes, aka Keynes, aka Olu, who stole hearts in Undone by the Ex-Con. There will be grumps. There will be kisses. There will be sheep. If you haven’t yet, join my V.I.P. list to stay updated.
Now, remember I mentioned ending the year with a bang? That comes in November with the release of my traditionally published debut, GET A LIFE, CHLOE BROWN. It’s a romcom about a chronically ill, uptight grump and the charming, artsy handyman who hates her guts. Kind of. Sort of. For a little bit. Oh, you know she wins him over.
If you’re into forced proximity, class differences (she has family money, darling, and he… does not), bad first impressions, strong sisterly bonds, wayward cats, and buttons (don’t ask), you’ll want to add GET A LIFE, CHLOE BROWN to your Goodreads shelf. I could not be more excited about this book. Wait until you see the cover. Just. Wait.
Oh – and, even though this is about 2019, here’s an early 2020 plan for you. Because I don’t play by the rules.
In 2020, I am releasing an M/F standalone called DEVILISH. It’s a pun. You’ll figure it out. When I mentioned the title to my V.I.P.s, lots of people guessed it might be PNR. You may be disappointed to hear that it is not. You may be excited to hear that I am planning on writing more PNR. (Eventually. I’m a busy woman. I have so many biscuits to eat.) But—back to DEVILISH. There will be angst, shattered childhood friendships, and The Princess Bride references. It’s gonna be edgy and epic.
So now we’ve discussed everything… except for this blog.
As I’ve already mentioned, I am a busy woman. While I’m only releasing three books this year, I am actually writing six, or possibly eight, or maybe nine. However, I do adore this website, and this blog in particular. So I will be using it. I make no promises about how often I’ll post, mind you. My brain is an easily bewildered gazelle, and if startled or pressured it will run for miles, and then where will I be? Exhausted, that’s where. I can’t go chasing gazelle brains. I have asthma, and my body’s connective tissues are of questionable quality.
But occasionally, hopefully, I will be cunning enough to catch the gazelle brain before it flees, and in those cases I will write and publish a blog post for your delectation. They will almost certainly be ridiculous. They will involve stories I like, stuff I like, and the occasional hot take. I can tell you’re excited for what’s to come. I don’t blame you. I am, as we all know, absolutely riveting.
Until next time, then, my mushy pea.
Love and biscuits,
