Project Update

Okay everyone, it's time for a deeply personal post. Normally, I'm the type of person who can see humor in almost anything so this is quite difficult to admit. Here it goes...
Originally, I had 4 books scheduled for release this year. (The next Karli, the next 2 Dealing With Love installments, and Beautifully Broken) My plan was to work on 2 books simultaneously like I normally do (each in different series) but I can't do that due to recent events in my personal life.
A few months ago, I lost my father-in-law to cancer. Last month, I lost my own father to heart disease. Both men had an incredible presence in our family and were taken far too soon. Needless to say, grief is a powerful emotion and it's very prominent in my life right now. I simply don't have the time nor the heart to write as much as I normally would. My family needs to come first.
That being said, I AM actively writing Beautifully Broken. It is quite different from anything I've done in the past. It is filled with angst - my heroine, Kat, comes from an unusually tough background. This story is quite poignant, yet also beautiful; hence, the title. With my current state of mind, this is the story that is speaking to me and I need to write what comes to me, as it comes to me. I'm simply not in a place where romantic comedy or paranormal/UF is taking up prime real estate in my brain.
For now, I can tell you that I'm aiming for a June release on Beautifully Broken. As for the others, there will be at least one more but I can't tell you which one at this point. I know this is disappointing to those of you anxiously waiting for the next Karli or Dealing With Love installment. All I can say, is that I'm sorry and I ask that you be patient with me.
Once I finish settling my father's estate, I hope to pick up the pace and add a third release for the year but I won't know for sure until that's done. I appreciate all the support you have given me thus far, and I can only hope that I don't lose you while I take this necessary break. heart emoticon887 people reached


  1. My condolences on your losses. I understand completely, having recently losing my mom early in January. I have no problem re-reading you other books until the new ones come out. Just take one day at a time.

  2. I'll wait as long as it takes I'm in love with the fairy series. Condolences and god bless.
