2018 Writing Challenge

Hi everyone,

So, if you follow me on Facebook, you pretty much know this already, but I know a few of you don’t, so I want to share this here.

This is expanded a little as it’s not a Facebook post, but my place to hang out. 🙂

I know I have a lot of cover reveals and a lot of releases as I write a lot. Most of my books are short stories or novellas, between 15-50k. Not much has changed in 6 years of being a full time author. I’ve done a few longer books but they have always been devoted to series like The Skulls or The Owners, where they have several characters already.

With each story, I give part of myself and the truth is, I find it terrifying. This is my journey with each character and sometimes I take my own experiences, thoughts, and feelings, but not all the time. I’ve not been able to move on until a story is wrote. Some stories are short, others not so much.  I know that not everyone will like what I write and I do accept that. I’ve seen plenty of negative reviews, which again I accept, even though some days my thick skin feels a little thin.

We all love different stories and different genres. I’ve always read authors like Tijan, Penelope Douglas, Pepper Winters, Jamie Begley, Lexi Blake, recently found a love of Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland, and thought there is no way I could ever do something like that (not that I think I ever will, they are just so awesome). I have ideas for stories that I know will be longer, and I’ve got a special notebook that I put those ideas in that I know will be longer, that I’d never be able to write, until now.

A few weeks ago I read a post by Alta Hensley (this was a facebook post). She is a wonderful person, so sweet, about setting challenges in 2017, and she’s gone from strength to strength. Well, in 2018, I decided to go ahead and to just go for it. What do I have to lose? For a long time I’ve had readers asking me for longer books and I’ve always been put off writing them out of worry, panic, and fear, well no more. Consider this, wish granted.

The Biker’s Baby is an MC standalone, and over 72k in words, making it one of my longest ever standalones stories not connected to any series. I absolutely love this cover, and even though I’m trying not to panic about its release, I’m also proud of myself. I had to write this story, I have to know if I can do this, write longer books for my readers that have always been asking. I’ve got so many ideas I want to share with you all, and there is another full-length (longer than this one) already scheduled for release.

I just want to say a big thank you to all of my readers for their love and support throughout the years. Without you, I wouldn’t be doing this. So in 2018 I’m going to be working on longer projects as well as finishing up some of my series (I know you want Simon and Tabitha). Even before I got this cover, I worry that it’s not going to be good enough that you’ll hate it and I already fear the bad reviews, but this is also the challenge, to get over those insecurities and to keep on going. I hope you like this new venture.

This is the unedited / not finalized blurb. I will update soon.

Someone is stealing from the club and as Prez, Gunner has to find out who it is. The only person he can trust is his best friend, John Williams. They served in the military and they’ve been through hell together. His friend is important to him as is John’s wife, Scarlett. From the first moment Gunner saw her, he wanted her.

She belonged to his friend, and he never allowed himself to have her.

John cannot have kids. He’s had the letter, and he can’t give his wife the baby she so desperately craves. Gunner is already a father and his best friend. There’s only one solution, and that is to get his friend to knock his wife up.

Seeing a chance to be with Scarlett, Gunner agrees but with the promise they cannot tell her.

There has always been a tension between her husband and Gunner. Scarlett sees it in the way they look at each other. Her and John’s marriage is about honesty, and so when he wants to share her, she doesn’t see a problem.

Each time they’re together, Scarlett sees the need growing in both men. Seeing no other way, she concocts a plan that will bring her men together.

Now that the truth is out, can they survive as a threesome?

What will happen when Scarlett falls pregnant and discovers their plan?

With their lives coming apart, it’s up to Gunner and John to protect Scarlett as the traitor in the club is determined to bring it down around them.

This story contains anal play, anal sex, MM themes and sex.
