Taking a break, body surfing, and a new release

I've been working very hard to get ahead of schedule and STAY THERE. Why? So I can have a little bit of time off, like normal people. LOL That's a thing still right? It's been so long since I've had a true break, I've forgotten.

Here's my idea of a "break." I've got new releases written ahead, already edited, formatted, cover art done, and ready to go. I've done this all the way through summer 2018. Yes, you read that correctly. That way, I'm not writing my butt off every second and I can have an opportunity for new and wonderful stories to come to mind. :)

However, during that time I don't exactly get to rest. I'm still working on getting those releases out, sending newsletters, and maintaining my website (which needs to be checked about once a week for software updates). 

This "break" that's been going on for only about a month has given me time to catch up on my yards, spend more time with my family, and plant a massive pumpkin garden with my dad. :) 

I've also been going to the beach as much as possible and body surfing, despite getting 10 jellyfish stings the time before last. LOL Yes, you read that correctly too. These weren't the big deadly ones, just the little ones that sting like a beyotch and leave purple bruises. But I still caught those waves, so jellyfish can suck it. Ha. Ha. Ha.

Oh, I also have a new book up for pre-order.

Of all the stories I've ever written, Frank and The Werewolf Tamer has received the most requests for a sequel. I'm pleased that I finally got a chance to fulfill those requests. Night Touch tells the story of a brand new character, Rosalie. It also gets us a little closer to a fan favorite, Kurtis, the Dracula impersonator. And for those who've loved the Lilith Mercury series, there are a few cameo appearances in this one. 

Night Touch officially releases September 2, 2016.

This is Book Two in the Notte Oscura series. Each book in this series is a standalone story with returning characters.

Rosalie's psychic abilities have significantly changed her life. Skin against skin contact gives her visions, which sometimes includes the untimely death of those she touches. Fortunately for her, these abilities do not work on vampires.

NOTE: This story contains graphic language, sex, and violence.
