Some of this post is from my last email notification (the one for Will’s Hope) about upcoming books, expanded for the blog here.
In case you missed it, a while ago I released Of Love and Zembores, the sixth New Canton Republic book, and Gay for Alex, a contemporary story and the first of the Love Is series that’ll continue with Taken With Tony, which I have been working on.
Currently, I’m working hardest on Of Relations and Ships, the next New Canton Republic book! I’m loving it, and I can’t wait to share it! I don’t think it’s a spoiler to say this is Blane’s story and he is so, so much fun. (Blane is Carlton’s younger brother from Of Mates and Barters.)
I haven’t forgotten about The King’s Deception, but it’s taking a while. It’s got mystery and humor and lots of fun, hot sex, and if you haven’t tried the Hend & Yurt series, The King’s Gambit is a favorite of mine. :D A little intrigue, lots of romance, fun characters, and magic! It’s also a full novel. Don’t let Leon’s marriage of convenience with Ithera scare you off this series! This is a lighthearted romance fantasy series and the “King” books are Leon’s and Geran’s story.
There will be other books for other pairings in this series, for sure. The King’s Deception is going to be followed by The Mage’s Mark which is a story for Prince Yohan. I won’t spoil it by saying anything else but I am desperate to write this book! I just wish I had more time. There’s never enough. :-)
One to Tame is just about ready and that leaves only one more novelette in the R’H’ani Chronicles before the second R’H’ani Chronicles collection comes out. I don’t know if anyone’s waiting for that, but I have plans to offer a coupon for a big discount on the first collection at Smashwords when I release One to Tame.
I’m happy to say I’ve been writing a lot lately and feeling the love for all my characters and stories again after a rough patch or three the last couple of years. Expect releases to pick up a bit as I finally get some of these stories I’ve been working on for what feels like forever completed. :D (Fingers crossed!)
I don’t mind questions or comments about how I’m progressing on any particular project. I do still work on more than one book at a time in almost all cases. :-)
What’s coming next, in no particular order:
The King’s Deception
Of Relations and Ships
Taken with Tony
One to Tame
The Mage’s Mark
Werewolf at the Gate & Bet on Marriage (these are for my Lynne Sterley pen name, and there’s an active coupon for the first two books in that series at 50% off on Smashwords that expires June 30)
I have two different stories begging me to tell them as the next Wolves’ Heat book, but I’m giving myself a little time on that decision. Will’s Hope was a bit of an epic for me and I definitely want to finish a couple of other things before I dig into those.
A few other projects are in the works, too, but all I have are tentative working titles and sometimes things don’t come together so I’ll just skip mentioning anything else right now. If they develop further, they’ll get mentioned eventually.
