What A Month: Updates and New Stuffs

Well. July has been a helluva month and it ain't even over! Gah! So first, thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who bought Don't Trust the Cut. I've gotten so many positive comments and to everyone who took the time to message me, I'm humbled. The reviews have been blowing me away, man. I'm just completely in awe. I never expected people to react so wonderfully to Jesse and Tucker's story. It was very personal, even being a romance with some fictionalized situations, so i was very nervous about releasing it into the world but the biblio gods saw fit to bless my little story.

You'll have to excuse the fact that my heart can't handle all the feels right now. People are just ... y'all rock!

I mean, when Don't Trust the Cut landed in USA Today's Happy Ever After Blog after getting 4.5 stars from Sinfully Sexy Book Reviews and 5 Stars from JESSEWAVE! Yeah, my heart may have developed an irregular beat. Like, srsly. I'm suffering.

Er. I'm fearful, though, that I set the bar too high with my first story, haha. Like On the Dock  I kinda surprised myself with all the emotion I put into the story so I hope I won't be judged too harshly if I throw out some "fluffier" (for me, anyways...) stuff. Even I need a break from the insanity of all the angst, sometimes. I have been working on Logan & Gianni's story (Gangster Country) and it's been a killer to write. The head space I have to live in is intense for me. Gianni's kind of unlikeable, but I love him cuz he's mine haha. So I'll get more info on that out when I get closer to finish it. (should be within the next week or so)

Well, to ease the pain of the process of writing Gianni I paused for a moment to write a short, Dear John, that is about 8k words that'll be released on my blog VERY soon (i'm working on mobi files etc). I'm also working on a 20-25k novella titled A Little Complicated that I'm almost finished with. I'll drop a blurb soon. It's a relatively simple little romance, but the guys are sweethearts so it's been fun to write, if brief.

Still waiting to hear back on my novel Trouble & the Wallflower. (blurb/picspiration here) It will be released no matter what. Trust me on this. Gavin & Davy (and the rest of my Market Boys) will see the light of day because I love them wayyyy too much.

And finally, my friend AnonymousBlogger (she's THE EFFING BEST, completely invaluable. Authors I seriously recommend you give her a shout out) is all over the proofs for the re-release of Wide Awake which has a lovely new cover from the AMAZING (and my bestest bestie) L.C. Chase. Wide Awake will be released with extended content, newly edited and IN PRINT as well as eBook!! (160 pages, paperback) I'm so effing stoked! When I have more info on that I'll let you know but it will be available August 15 in both formats. So now, for anyone who hasn't seen yet, I give you the new cover!
