Thanks so much to everyone who helped me on the journey to getting my first book in print. Readers, editors, fans, family, friends–everyone! Your support means the world to me.
I woke up thinking today would be like any other day. Y’know, words to write, pizzas to eat. Instead, this lovely little box showed up on my doorstep and blew my already writing-addled mind.
The author copies of Unlikely Beginnings are here!!!
The print anthology releases December 2nd, on the same day that Junglecat Honeymoon goes live. Both are up for preorder on the Samhain site and I’m already running a Goodreads giveaway (open internationally!). Two copies of the paperback are up for grabs and there will be a few more giveaways to come as we get closer to the pub date. Click below to enter:
The latest addition to the Manhattan Ten family is coming in December, and I’m thrilled to finally reveal the cover. M10: Unlikely Beginnings will feature Ivory, Temptress, and Belle Fury in print form, plus a new short story, Junglecat Honeymoon.
Thrilled with how this one came out! Thanks, as always to Kanaxa for the fabulous cover design.
Pre-order links to follow! For now, you can add to your TBR on Goodreads.
I’m spending a few days in Singapore, and the diversity of this country is amazing. I’m staying in Chinatown and spent yesterday in Little India. Later today, I’m headed to the Middle Eastern district for some shopping and Turkish coffee. Being in such a hodgepodge place, filled with disparate cultures and customs and languages and foods is incredibly inspiring. I can hear chanting and music from the Hindu temple down the street, and smell the fresh flower garlands as vendors prepare them for prayer. The announcements on the MRT are made in four languages, and people of all colors and religions and walks of life mix in this place that has one of the lowest crime rates in the world.

On a diversity note, Ivory is in the finals for the 2014 Swirl Awards–an award competition recognizing excellence in interracial romance. The paranormal/scifi/fantasy category is huge, but I’m honored to be nominated! I’ll keep you all posted on the results : )
AND–the Manhattan Ten print anthology is coming!! This will be my first book in print, and I can’t wait to have it in my hands. I’ll be revealing the cover on June 16th. If you’re a blogger and would like to participate, stop by Xpresso Reads to sign up!
After Singapore, I’m back to the U.S. for a bit, and then…? No plans yet, except continuing on my writing spree! The good news is that Manhattan Ten #4 is written and out for feedback. Now I’m working on some novel-length projects that I hope to share soon : )
