Ramblings/Drabbles/BLEGH

Hello, my darlings! I hope everyone is having a fabulously spooky October so far! I’ve been crazy busy, and I can’t wait to share all the exciting book news with you guys!

Real quick tho! I want to apologize to anyone who has tried to reach me through the message feature on my “About Me” page and did not receive a reply. I did not realize that pretty much every email that is created through that application ends up in my spam folder which I confess I do not regularly check. I have also apparently been having issues when people try to reply to me through the newsletter because that’s like a 50/50 crap shoot of ALSO going into my spam folder. I’ve tried to contact everyone whose messages I was able to find, and I am sincerely sorry to anyone I might have missed! I LOVE hearing from fans, and I am so very sorry about the mess! I have now set all the messages to go to a different email, and I am hoping this fixes the problem.

Okay. Now for all the fun book things!

Don’t forget Nautilus Than Perfect is still up for preorder and will be coming out 10-26-21! Less than two weeks to go! This is #4 in my Sucker For Love series, and it is packed full of sexy tentacle goodness! I’ve begun editing Just Calamarried (#5) with my publisher, and I’m expecting a release date early next year. I have completed the rough draft of Our Shellfish Desires (#6), and I am hoping to submit that by the end of the month. That only leaves TWO books to write for this series (#7 and #9 since I already wrote #8 forever ago), and I am really excited about finally finishing it.

Don’t fret, my tentacle pets. Even after I finish Sucker For Love, I am still going to write more books set in the magical city of Archersville. I may take a wee bit of a break, but I am still planning to write the Hidden World series, a collection of books that will follow Jay, Asta, Sullivan Stoker, and many more including lots of new characters!

And yes, for those keeping track of my rambling, I know I said that Jay and Asta were going to have their own mini-series. They probably mostly likely still will. However, I’ve noticed how often readers mention them in reviews, SO it would behoove me to take note and probably do a little something more with these boys. They would fit in well with the Hidden World plot I have planned, but I do worry about using them as MC’s since Asta doesn’t have tentacles.

For a series all about tentacles, that’s a problem. *cough*Kraken My Heart*coughcough*. Which is why I was going to create the Jay/Asta mini-series as its own separate thing to read through like Book Funnel or something. I’m still thinking it over, but I’m very wary of making the same mistake twice. But hey! I still have to get through the rest of Sucker For Love first! Whew!

Up next is #7, another Sloane and Loch book! I haven’t done diddly on it because of the ten million other things I’m working on, but I expect to start the rough draft before the end of the year.

One of the ten million things happens to be a collection of short stories I will be sharing counting down the days to Halloween: 13 Days of Monster F!cking! This is a monster fucker’s wet dream with everything from ghosts, werewolves, shadow demons, and–you guessed it–monsters with big ol’ tentacles. I will be posting the stories for free in my FB Group starting October 19th although my very lucky Patreon peeps have already been enjoying the sexy monster goodness!

My plan is to take all thirteen shorts, edit them, make them extra filthy, and release them in December for a spooky little Christmas! While I finish those up, my other writing has paused (except for publisher edits), and I’m over halfway done! YAY! I think it is worth mentioning that the final story, the one I plan to release on Halloween, will star Jimmy and Boss Cold. So, even if you’re not into monsters, you might enjoy Jimmy and Cold having a very fun Halloween! XD

Speaking of my CHC boys, let’s talk mafia stuff! Editing has begun on A Quick Buck, and my publisher is looking at November 19th as a potential release date. This has not been fully confirmed, but they’ve been kind enough to work with me so this book’s release doesn’t collide with Nautilus sooo that’s the date we’re eyeballing. The title may also change, so don’t be surprised if something different pops up later. It’s still the same book, just a new name.

I am still planning something naughty with Cold’s maybe possibly long lost brother and a member of the Luchesi family, but I am not sure when I am going to write it. As usual. I know, I’m awful. I’ve discussed in other blogs that it’s difficult for me switching between the modern world of CHC and the magical land of Sucker For Love, and I am SO CLOSE to finishing SFL. Plus, I already have outlines for the remaining SFL books.

I know a lot of you don’t care for tentacle or monster things so you won’t be interested in most of these upcoming stories. I ask for your patience while I try to finish Sucker For Love and my Halloween collection, and I will do my best to get new mafia sexiness out to you as soon as I can. In addition to the book for Cold’s sort of maybe brother, I still need to write the last Cold Hard Cash book for Jimmy and Boss Cold. My brain has refused to cooperate, and I dare wonder sometimes if it’s my subconscious way of refusing to say goodbye to them, LOL.

I also have that robot book that has been haunting my dreams… but I’m going to ignore it. Not really, but agh, I got myself into a mess because I wanted to write the Halloween shenanigans before moving on to anything else. I’m in a bit of a hole with what I want to do versus how much time I actually have, but I am doing my very best to get everything sorted and keep making fun and sexy books for you all to enjoy.

So, my tentative plan for the rest of 2021 is to finish the Halloween shorts while working on edits with my publishers, edit Shellfish to submit, THEN I will finally maybe work on my robot book while also editing aforementioned Halloween shorts to release for a spooky Christmas. After that, if my brain is not complete goo, I will start on the next Sucker For Love book and maybe plot some new CHC world adventures.

Wish me luck! And send wine. Lots of wine.

Take care and stay safe!

Ramblings/Drabbles/BLEGH

Hello, darlings! I survived GISH!!! I did weird things with onions, polished a coconut, and made an embalmer Barbie. I hope I’ve made Misha proud! XD XD XD

Whew! Okay! Lots of new stuff to discuss! It’s always amazing to me how much can happen in a month, and I have lots of good news! First up, Head Over Tentacles is LIVE, and the reviews have been amazing. Thank you to EVERYONE who took the time to share the love. I’m so very happy that you guys enjoyed catching back up with Sloane and Loch!

Don’t forget that Nautilus Than Perfect is still up for preorder and will be coming out 10-26-21! This story stars Chase and Merrick, and their romance is one of my absolute favorites. And don’t worry. There’s plenty of tentacles because maaaybe one of them is not human. Hehehe! <333

Next up, I am super happy to announce that Just Calamarried: Sucker For Love #5 has been accepted for publication! WHOOOO! We will rejoin Sloane and Loch in this adventure to see how married life is treating our boys and their very unexpected surprise from the end of HoT. I have no release date, no timeframe on editing, no nothing. I LITERALLY got the email today, LOL! I will keep you guys posted with new info as soon as I can!

And yet in more tentacle news, I am about halfway done with the rough draft of Our Shellfish Desires: Sucker For Love #6. Many people in the reviews of Head Over Tentacles mentioned their love for Rota and Alexander, and THIS is their book. I know they totally seemed like the logical choice for the next book and not Chase/Merrick, but there are some plot things that had to happen first BEFORE I could tell their story.

Namely, the introduction of a very special character in Nautilus Than Perfect that is going to help Rota and Alexander find their happy ending…

I never know how much to spoil — I mean, all you have to do is ask me and I will tell you just about anything LOL — but I don’t wanna ruin anything for readers who would rather wait! So, just trust me. There is a good reason I waited to write the book for Alexander and Rota. It’s a very cute, very ginger reason! <333

Now, for my mafia fans!!! A Quick Buck is DONE and I am editing it to send off to my publisher! I can’t wait for you guys to meet Noah and get to know Alistair a little better. OMG the kinks in this book: spanking, cock spanking, orgasm denial, human furniture, and more! It’s hot, sexy, and I LOVE the mystery in this one. It was a lot of fun and although I don’t plan on writing more for these two, I am very happy with their story. I will let you guys know when/if it gets accepted and all that fun!

Now, I talked a little bit last month about not being sure about what to do after I finished SFL #6. It is a big struggle bouncing between a modern world like the CHC verse and then back to Tentacle Land where I am constantly forgetting things (like wait, who has what magic now? Did Loch already fix that stupid statue at the bar!? AGH!). When I finish #6, I only have two more books to write for that series since #8 is technically done, and the ideas for both #7 and #9 are really solid in my brain.

So……

Unless I have a huge break-through on CHC 5, I am going to see SFL through until the end. I am gonna stay in Tentacle Land until I finish the last three books, the mini-series for Jay and Asta, and any and all bonus scenes. WHEW!

I want to finish CHC so badly, but I honestly have no spark to write it. I have a vague idea of what’s going to happen, I know what characters are going to come back, but mehhhh. I got nothin’. It sucks because I know how much everyone loves Jimmy and Cold, but I can’t force myself to write a story that I’m not feeling. I am still very interested in writing about Cold’s half-brother and maybe a guy from the Luchesi gang because why not, but even that is mostly just a collection of smutty ideas and not a solid story yet.

There will be a small break in between SFL #6 and #7 where I finally finish editing Love Not Included for publication because I’ve had the beta notes back forever and I already have the cover and ugh. I love this story. It’s a lot of fun. BUT it needs a lot of freakin’ work to get it up to snuff with the rest of my books since I wrote it such a long time ago. I’m still planning to release it this year, so maybe Nov or Dec depending on where my other releases fall. <333

And hey, don’t forget! Even though the Taking A Chance Anthology is gone, you can still get a copy of my short story, “Playing for Keeps” by signing up for my newsletter over at Book Funnel! If you are already signed up, you can still share your email and get a free copy anyway! XD

I hope you’re all doing well and kicking lots of butt out there in the world! See you next month!

Take care and stay safe!

Head Over Tentacles is LIVE!

It’s LIVE! You can grab your copy of Head Over Tentacles NOW!

Private investigator Sloane Beaumont should be enjoying his recent engagement to eldritch god Azaethoth the Lesser, AKA Loch. Unfortunately, he doesn’t have time for a pre-honeymoon period.

The trouble starts with a deceptively simple missing persons case. That leads to the discovery of mass kidnappings, nefarious secret experiments, and the revelation that another ancient god is trying to bring about the end of the world by twisting humans into an evil army.

Just another day at the office.

Sloane does his best to juggle wedding planning, stopping his fiancé from turning the mailman inside out, and meeting his future godly in-laws while working the case, but they’re also being hunted by a strange young man with incredible abilities. With the wedding date looming closer, Sloane and Loch must combine their powers to discover the truth—because it’s not just their own happy-ever-after at stake, but the fate of the world….

PURCHASE NOW!

New Preorder Available!

Nautilus Than Perfect is available for PREORDER now! This is #4 in the critically acclaimed Sucker For Love Mystery Series, and it will release October 26th, 2021!

~*~

Detective Elwood Q. Chase has ninety-nine problems, and the unexpected revelation that his partner is a god is only one of them.

Chase has been in love with Benjamin Merrick for years and has resigned himself to a life of unrequited pining. But when they run afoul of a strange cult, Merrick’s secret identity as Gordoth the Untouched slips out… and so do Chase’s feelings. The timing can’t be helped, but now Merrick thinks Chase only cares about him because he’s a god.

Even more unfortunately, it turns out the cultists want to perform a ritual to end the world. Chase’s mission to convince Merrick his feelings predate any divine revelations takes a back seat to a case tangled with murder and lies, but Chase doesn’t give up. Once he finds out there’s a chance Merrick feels the same way, he digs in his heels. Suddenly he’s trying to court a god and save the world at the same time. What could possibly go wrong?

Hello, darlings! REMINDER – this is the LAST MONTH to grab the Taking A Chance Anthology! Go do it now! It’s only gonna be available through the 22nd so the clock is ticking away! Remember it’s for a super awesome cause! All the proceeds are going to the AIDs Healthcare Foundation! <333

Strapped For Cash is LIVE and the pre-order for Head Over Tentacles is LIVE and OMG! It’s been a crazy year. I released a new book in March, April, May, and June. Wow. I’m freakin’ blown away by how much has happened and so very quickly, and the year isn’t over yet! Head Over Tentacles will be out August 24th and Nautilus Than Perfect comes out in October! WOO!

I’m almost halfway through the rough draft of A Quick Buck, and I expect to publish that before the end of the year PLUS I am going to finally finish Love Included, Heart Not Required. I already have the cover for Love, and omg is it GORGEOUS. I seriously can’t WAIT to show you guys. It’s a bit backwards for me as I usually have the book done long before the cover, but well, it’s been a little nuts lol. With all my other projects going on, I kept shoving Love on the backburner and then I had trouble getting a beta to help me and ugh… it’s been a whole thing.

So, tl;dr, my final goal is to release a minimum of four more books this year, the two Sucker For Love books that are already scheduled plus A Quick Buck and Love Included, Heart Not Required.

Beyond that? WHO KNOWS!

It’s always sort of funny when I sit down to write this monthly update because I look back at the one I wrote for the previous month and see how far I’ve come… or how wildly off track I am. Once I finish my current WIP, I’ve become a bit fuzzy on what to do next. I still very much want to start the next Sucker For Love book for my beloved Alexander, Rota, and Ollie – plus I have oodles of bonus scenes and this funny little mini-series idea for Jay and Asta that’s been rolling around in my head – but I’m getting distracted.

I teased last month about writing something with Boss Cold having a half-sibling running around somewhere and now it’s infected my brain. Send help. While I still intend to only write one more book for Cold and Jimmy, I very much want to continue writing adventures in the world of Strassen Springs. I haven’t worked out all the details yet, but I want to do something with this mystery half-brother and perhaps a member of the Luchesi family. Yes, it’s very corny Romeo and Juliet blah blah but I think it’ll be fun and very, very naughty.

Switching back to Tentacles Land, I wanted to say something else about the bonus scenes. You see, I just realized that I had never written any kind of bonus content for Sloane and Loch. Or Ted and Grell. Oops. To remedy that, I am planning several fun sexy bonus stories for all of them PLUSSS writing ahead and doing some extra sexy fun bits for Merrick and Chase, new characters that you’ll meet in Nautilus Than Perfect. I really should have just written the bonus content at the same time as the darn books like I did for Strapped for Cash, but hindsight is 20/20 and all that.

Lesson learned!

Speaking of learning, eagle-eyed readers will notice that Jinn & Tonic has vanished from my future project list. Without going into too many pitiful details, let’s just say my muse for that series got hit by a dump truck and I learned that self-pub is not my friend. I expect that Love Included, Heart Not Required will be my last self-pub for some time while I focus on my Sucker For Love and Cold Hard Cash books. I really need to finish at least one freakin’ series before my brain gets off its leash and pulls me into another world.

Or more spin-offs…

Just in the world of Strassen Springs, I’m working on A Quick Buck and Half-Brother Shenanigans. In Tentacle Land, there’s the Hidden World that I’m itching to start because it focuses on the everlasting people who survived on Aeon and what their descendants are up to like the infamous Fish Boy. I also have this delightful idea for ANOTHER tentacle series because I have watched Psycho Goreman too many times — which if you haven’t seen but you like campy horror, you MUST WATCH IT. Omg. Two words. “HUNKY BOYS”.

Or wait oh maybe this hunky boy series could tie into the Hidden World somehow… agh… see!? I have to stay focused! XD

Oh, oh, oh, and there’s the Suckers and Spats series, which would be a mafia tentacles series of books totally separate from either Sucker for Love or CHC, and, and… yeah, I’ve gotta stop.

Anyway! I hope you’ve enjoyed this month’s ramblings and are excited about what I have planned for the rest of the year. Thank you so much for all of your support and love! It means the moon and stars to me. I seriously could not do this without you guys! Thank you.

<333

Stay safe!
