Let's Talk About The Elephant In The Room ...

I just wanted to touch base with everyone - a central place with a little more freedom than private messages and Facebook walls. I guess by now we all know it's December and there's still no clear release date for Testing Fate ...
What does that mean?
It means I really don't like being vague. Whenever I'm asked, my standard answer has become "I don't know yet" or "I'm waiting for the go ahead from my editor" or my favorite ... "It's coming soon." I want you all to know that it bothers me to say that - I want nothing more than to say "It's going to be released such and such ... SQUEE!" Unfortunately, life doesn't always work that way no matter how much I ask it sweetly. Believe me, I've tried.

When I first announced the December date, it was with a hopeful heart. I anticipated no hiccups with nothing but smooooooth sailing. *chuckles* Hands up anyone whose life ever goes EXACTLY the way we want it to *looks around* Me neither.

I recently changed editors. It was necessary and what it means is not only is the book subject to my life and priorities, but also hers. What I also didn't take into account was other editing obligations and Christmas. Family always takes precedence ... even in front of Mason, Darcy, and Devlin *chuckles* Thankfully they're not as ornery as Quinn. He wouldn't care and demand I cater to him. Sexy jerk!

 So do I have a release date yet? No.
What do I have? Three very strong FACTS

 Fact #1 - Testing Fate will be BY FAR the best book in the series to date.
Fact #2 - I have one of the best editors I've ever worked with helping me polish the book. I love having that kind of confidence and Testing Fate with SPARKLE.
Fact #3 - Waiting just a little longer will be a VERY distant memory once you get a copy. A lot happens in the book - things you've been waiting for ... and some that you'll never see coming.

I love you all so much. Thank you for all the support you've not only given me but the series. You've embraced the Mystic Wolves - claimed the characters for your own and it means so much! I promise in the meantime to share teasers, torture you all a little less, and find fun ways to celebrate the series!
Happy swooning everyone!!

Cover Reveal - Forget Me Not

For those of you who know me, one of the things I LOVE doing is teasing everyone. Okay ... you all call it torturing but it's always done with good intentions. Well, I wanted to let you in on another quirk I have -
I also LOVE surprises.
Never on me, though. I'm very impatient and not knowing what's going on is one of the quickest ways to drive me crazy. Nope, I love giving others a surprise - in fact, that was how the Mystic Wolves was published. Do you remember? Everyone went to bed and I was just The Bookish Snob, romance reviewer/blogger. Come morning, I excitedly declared "Woohoo everyone, look what I did. My first every short story Without Mercy is now available. I'm a published author!" That was over a year ago and I've never forgotten the response. Thank you for making this series a best seller.
So, what does that have to do with anything?
Everything because today I have a SURPRISE ...
the EARLY reveal of Forget Me Not's NEW cover!!
Between you and me, I get a little giddy with Mason looking at me like that ...
all swoony, smoldery, and I-want-to-ravish-you-right-here-right-now!
Once again a HUGE thank you to Regina at MaeIDesigns for this amazing cover. She has a natural gift for being able to take the vision of an author and make it real!
For those who haven't read Forget Me Not yet, here's the buy links!
Remember the first book, The Mystic Wolves is FREE
To celebrate this release, I'm have more goodies to give away:

Coming soon ...
Testing Fate's new cover reveal!
Happy Swooning!

Top Secret Mystic Wolves Project ... Revealed

If you've been on Facebook the past few days, you know I have a secret. Actually, it's a secret project that consists of three sections. In keeping with my Queen of Torture nature, I've been pretty tight lipped about it - a surprise for me because I'm notorious for NOT being able to keep a secret. Somehow I've managed to go almost 3 weeks ... yep, I deserve a medal or something. Maybe a statue. Or a day named after me ... just sayin'.

I've had some fun with it as well. Did you all see these posts?


Hahahaha - yep, I've been laughing all day while peeking out my window for any lynch mobs and impatient readers. What can I say? I like to tease!

So what's the SECRET??

I could continue going on and on and on .... maybe post some more vague and cryptic pictures OR I can just show you. What do you think?

Okay ... here you go ...

The Mystic Wolves series has received a SWOONWORTHY makeover!!

Here is the first cover, designed by the INCREDIBLE

Regina Wamba of MaeIDesign!

She is AMAZING and created me the PERFECT covers!

Take a moment to stroke the screen!!

I am so excited to begin revealing them. When I first released Without Mercy (now included of the first book) it was part of an anthology. It was never meant to become a series so I decided to just have Darcy on the cover. As the series grew and grew, I knew I would need to one day revamp so I could have both Darcy and Mason together so VOILA!!

Isn't he AMAZING??

So this is PART ONE of my reveal. Coming soon is Forget Me Not and Testing Fate's new look - both will look just as HAWT as this one!

Don't FORGET ... this book is FREE
