First of all. JUMPER is coming out November 14. ARCs are going to be available through Booksprout and my ARC Team starting on Friday the 3rd. Reviews will be due November 21. My beta readers all thought that this was a great but different read than all the other Somnolence books. It’s definitely a much darker tale, but I loved JUMPER’s backstory it begged to be told.
My life is a bit on end right now. My husband is a doer not a sit on his hand and think about things kind of guy. We talked for about five minutes regarding moving, and then the next thing I knew there was a sign on my front yard, a realtor in my home, and a scheduled open house.
To say I’m unprepared is an understatement. I’m releasing a book for goodness sakes. It’s not time to upheave my life and sell our house out from under me. And better yet than all that? He is sending me alone to buy a house across the country. His theory is that he bought this
So, bookwise, my plans for releases are all shook up and spun sideways. I was planning for a early January release of a YA/NA dystopian and I’m unsure when that is coming. I will be putting out a Somnolence novella definitely for February. But that is all I know right now. Nix’s book is out there in the wind. I don’t have a date for you. Not even the suggestion of one.
What I do have dates on are signings. Here are the places I will be and when.
It’s so dark in his life that his Claimed mates may never get out.
Becca Grimm is a Legion demon and has known one thing since she was a young girl: she would have a breeding pact. That her breeding pact partner turned out to be her Tether was a dream come true until he broke her heart, and then she wanted to break his face until he crawled back to kiss her feet.
But Jumper’s world is darker and more secretive than he’s ever let on. Even with her guardian-Tethers, at her side, she can barely navigate it. And finding her way back to the light is impossible in a world where wickedness reigns.
Becca can’t say no to the things Jumper demands of her. She loves the things that Tobin wants from her. And she can’t look away from the things she sees Jumper and Crux do together.
Content Warning to come.
It’s recommended that you read the series in order, beginning with RAIDEN.
My release date for JUMPER is the start of November! I finished the first draft, finally. It was challenging with all the travel I was doing and having COVID. I will be working on the second draft starting next week. I need to read what I have written and red pen the hell out of it first. I have a signing in St. Pete (Tampa) at the end of this month, but I should be able to stay on schedule.
I’ve written 22,500 words on JUMPER’s early draft in the last ten days. I’m trying to finish it completely by next Monday when I leave for Sultry In The City in Houston. I’m going to Galveston for a few days before the event and Austin after. I won’t have much time to write while I’m gone, if any. I will then have three weeks to do my 2nd draft before I leave for Books At The Beach.
In the meantime here is a typo for you. You make up your mind… was it a hot tub or a hot tube?
I wasn’t going to do a JUMPER teaser. I said I would post older teasers, but then Chanel made this gorgeous graphic, and I had to post it. So here is my teaser, the scenario is that Jump, Becca, and their mates are infiltrating a cult, and he has to do something that he knows will affect their relationship… this leads to somewhat questionable sexy times.
JUMPER will be released this fall. Keep your eyes here for more details.
I am the Queen of two things: Sleep and Procrastination.
That said, I had most of this post planned on Tuesday and actually said something to the effect of, ‘I don’t have to worry about tomorrow yet’ when I was reminded about it. I then went on to do some recovery on Wednesday, and I did not get this post done. I guess I need to apologize to Miss Bri because I did indeed need to worry about Wednesday then… I couldn’t have guessed that I would be feeling badly and sleep all day.
Alas, the book. JUMPER. I am behind on it. It’s looking like the release for it will be pushed back again, with me having signings this month and next, there is just so little time for me to produce. Not to mention that my body has been in failure for weeks now. Between the anemia and COVID and now the iron infusion treatments. This is what turning 50 feels like? I would like to object on the BS involved with the last year. 49 has been a ton of nonsense.
All that said. Here is my typo of the week. I don’t know what I was trying to say… it’s all up to interpretation by the aliens.
I’ve been ‘working’ on JUMPER. I say ‘working’ because I’ve had a little hiatus while I have a holiday, a family emergency, and a flare-up of chronic anemia. Anemia sucks; when you have chronic anemia, it’s more than just fatigue. You get dizzy, weak, and you can get winded for no reason at all and heal incredibly slowly. I have an appointment with my oncologist to see what happens next, and for once I am hoping for iron infusions because they make me feel better, as overdone as they sound.
This BS has made working on the book incredibly difficult. I have built an incredibly detailed outline for the book, so when I get the energy up, I can zip through it.
Today I leave you with the genital WIP. It’s, unfortunately, balls.
Hello, and welcome to my WIP update. It Feels Like Home is going up on Amazon for paperback purchases in the next few days, and it will be up for preorder for e-books until the 4th. It comes out on the 5th of July. You can get it right now if you are an ARC reader through BookSprout or my YA & TEEN ARC Team.
My current project is JUMPER. I’m 13 chapters and 19000 words in. The first few chapters are letters, so there are many chapters at the start. That said, JUMPER is a deep and dark story. I already have TW for sexual torture, sexual sadism, SA, child SA, reference to miscarriage, PTSD by both a primary and side character, and the threat of forced breeding.
So yeah, this is a light, feel-good book you will want to share with the whole family!
