Summer 2017 – Hot in More Ways than One


I have a few events planned for the summer, with more to be added.

St Pete, Florida, June 25th: Sappho’s Scribes of Florida, my group of superb Florida Lesfic writers will have a table at the marketplace during St. Pete Pride this year. Come by our table (at location C5) if you are enjoying the festivities this year. Join scribes Ali Spooner, Alison Solomon, and Renee MacKenzie to check out what new and exciting things we have going on in our publishing lives.

Chicago, July 5-8th: check out the vendor area where I will be working the Affinity table for the duration of the conference. The GCLS conference has been changing lives for 13 years now. This will be my seventh one and I must say, it gets better and better every year. Never been? Come lose your virginity (conference virginity…) with us in Chicago this year. I for one cannot wait to see old friends and meet new ones. This is something worth planning your summer vacation around!

Provincetown, July 19th: Love, American Style! I am so stoked to be joining Lucy J. Madison and Kim Baker for this amazing event during GirlSplash! I’ve been to P-town twice now, both times in October, and am so excited to be going in the summer this time. And the bonus? This will be Sabrina’s first time in P-town. Here’s a picture of my girl, in case you haven’t been introduced.

Coming soon: I have a new series in the works, the Karst series as I call it, and I could not be more excited about this! In Kai’s Heart, the first dystopian romance, you will be introduced to the Brodies and to the wonderful folks at Karst, a cave city in New America. You will notice a change in not just the style and subject matter from my other work, but also in the name on the book. This one will be Renee MacKenzie writing as Kenzie Nova. New beginnings are amazing. And scary. But mostly amazing.

Do not fear, those of you waiting for the sequel to Pausing. Jordy, Keira, and their friends will be back soon. Do you remember when Jordy went shopping at the art gallery? How about when Keira thought her baby-dyke maintenance worker was her secret admirer? Well, gallery owner Lauren and hot-stuff Maddie are getting a story of their own. This is going to be hot, hot, hot!

It will be nice to get out of the swamp and away from the mosquitoes in the swamp several times this summer. But it will also be nice to stay holed up inside to get the sequels to both the upcoming dystopian romance, Kai’s Heart, and my latest contemporary romance, Pausing, written.mosquito nettingI
I hope to see you at one of this summer’s events, if not, I’ll see you when the water and bugs are under control and my next two stories are well under way.
