Chaos to Calmness

The last two months have been a wild ride for me. I had to take a break from writing because my personal life blew up. Now I’m settling into a new life as a single mother, living on my own for the first time in my life (yes, first time. I moved straight from living with momma and daddy to living with my future husband). I’m also working a full time job for the first time in six years. Talk about some major changes. Luckily, things are starting to calm down and I’m falling into a routine, which is actually giving me time writing again. I’m very glad about this. I’ve missed writing.

Before the explosion of doo, I had landed a contract with Carina Press for an erotic paranormal romance titled The Panther’s Lair. Between living with my wonderful friends who took me in (Thank you again, Heather and Jeff), looking for a job and finding an apartment and moving in, I was in deep edits with this release. I’m so proud of this story and my editor, Kym Hinton, was awesome to work with. I’m ecstatic about being part of the Carina Press family.

The Panther’s Lair is set to release on June 28th (the day after my birthday). Unfortunately, I don’t have an approved excerpt yet.

But I have a killer cover-->

See. Isn’t he hot? I know. I know. The whole cover is gorgeous, but I can’t stop looking at him. The cover artist, Angie Waters, did an excellent job of capturing the image of my hero, Raimond—a French-accented, drool-worthy shifter. Don’t you agree? He’s simply breathtaking.

I also created a trailer with my blurb:

I can’t wait to share this release with everyone. And thank you for letting me share this bit of information I have.

Thanks Natasha:)

Carly-thanks! I'll keep you guys informed:) But I can say that the expierence so far has been rewarding and completely worth it. I learned so much from my editor. She helped me become a better writer:):)
