Will Shane MacKenzie get a book?
Yes! Shane’s book is called SCORCH, but his story begins in SIZZLE and CRAVE. You’ll want to make sure you read both of them first.
Will Jayden MacKenzie get a book?
Yes! It’s slated for 2016. You get to see a look at an older Jayden in TO CATCH A CUPID.
I liked what I read about Cole MacKenzie in A CHRISTMAS WISH. Will I get to read more about him?
Cole MacKenzie is the original MacKenzie who settled in Surrender, Montana back in the 1800s. He was a US Marshal and he is definitely getting his own book. It’s called THE LAWMAN and will be out in 2016.
Do you actually know men like the MacKenzies?
Of course I do! You don’t think I could make something like that up, do you?
Is J.J.Graves going to get another book? What about her father? You can’t leave us like that!
J.J. Graves will be an ongoing series for at least a little while. I promise to keep writing the books until all loose ends are tied up. But I secretly like keeping some of the threads loose, so this series will probably be going on for a while. DOWN AND DIRTY will be out in Fall 2014.
What about Addison Holmes? Please tell me she’s getting another book! You can’t leave us hanging like that!
I told you I like loose threads 🙂 Addison is definitely going to get a lot more books. WHISKEY, YOU’RE THE DEVIL is up for pre-order and will be out in summer 2014. And in 2015 you’ll get two more Addison Holmes novels.
What about The Collective Series? You tempted us with a little bit of Jack Donovan at the end of KILL SHOT. Is Jack getting a book?
Oh, yes. Jack is definitely getting a book. It’s called RENEGADE and will be out in 2016. Unfortunately, there was a delay on the release of this book.
Those MacKenzie boys are pretty insistent about getting their stories told, and it’s hard for me to resist their charms (I told you I knew them). But The Collective series will be a total of 4 books and will be out in the next couple of years.
What about PARADISE DISTURBED? You said that was supposed to come out last year.
I know! I’m sorry. But like I said, those MacKenzie boys are insistent. So the next book in the Paradise series has been delayed as well. I’ll get to it. Eventually.
Why can’t you write faster?
I write fast! I swear! My current writing schedule is 6 full length books per year plus a few novellas. That’s a lot of words. Ask anyone. I wish I could put books out as fast as you all read them, but it’s just not possible. It takes me between 4-6 weeks to write a novel. And it usually takes me a couple of weeks in between books to figure out what the heck I’m going to write.
I want to be a writer. What do I do?
You can’t do anything until you write the book. So sit down and start writing.
I’ve written a book. What do I do now?
I suggest you join an organization like Romance Writers of America. If you have questions about going the indie route I suggest you pick up a copy of THE NAKED TRUTH ABOUT SELF-PUBLISHING. It’s pretty informative. And I wrote a few chapters in it.
Can you read my manuscript?
Unfortunately, I can’t read manuscripts for legal reasons. See above about joining a writing organization. They can usually set you up with a critique group or partner.
How come you’re not signing in my city?
I try to get to as many places in a year as I possibly can. Keep checking back on the Events page under appearances to see if I’ll be close to you. If I’m not, grab a couple of friends and take a road trip! It’ll be fun. And you’ll probably end up with scandalous photos that will end up on the Internet. Because that’s what happens on road trips.
How come I can’t get your books in a bookstore?
It depends on the bookstore. Some very lovely indie bookstores carry my books on the shelves. But you can always order paperbacks of my books from ANY bookstore, even if they don’t have them on the shelves.
Can I pre-order your books for NOOK?
Unfortunately, Barnes and Noble doesn’t allow pre-orders for indie titles. I wish they would, because I always have Nook readers asking about it. But there’s not much I can do about it. All of my books though, are available for NOOK and will release when they’re supposed to on release day.
Can I have my picture taken with you at signings?
Absolutely! I love pictures. Especially if you’re really good with Photoshop and make me look amazing.
Do you have a printable list for your books?
Yes. Go here
Your love scenes are really hot. How do you know all that stuff? Do you do a lot of research?
I never kiss and tell. But I have a very creative imagination when it comes to certain aspects of my writing.
Who are your favorite authors?
I have too many to list here. Check out the Extras page for a full list of my favorite authors. I LOVE to read and can always be found with a book. And I read just about every genre because I’m a spazz and like to change things up all the time. It’s probably the same reason I have so many series of my own going.
