Update on the Previous Update

Hey, guys! I thought I'd do an update on my previous update since some stuff has been changed or moved around.
First off, I'm working on two WIPs at the moment. Both are spin-offs to the Men of McKenna Downs serial. One is on Mellie's younger sister, Kendall, and the Huntingtons. That one will probably be one big stand-alone book. MFMMM menage with BDSM and MM elements.
The other spin-off is about Danielle and her six men. That one also has BDSM and plenty of MM. It will be a serial of either three or four books.
I'm closer to done with the one about Kendall, but we'll see. Whichever one I get sent in first will probably come out around March or April (if serial gets done first), or February/March (if stand-alone gets done first).
Haunting Siren will be republished, but at this point I've got so much going on I'm not sure if I'll self-pub it or send it to one of my publishers. That would require additional revising and possibly another book in the series sent at the same time, so it would take a bit.
About that dark trilogy I told you about, I have the first book mostly written and the second one started. The first book is 160k words so far, the longest I've written to date. The book is MM. It focuses mainly on this one relationship, but touches on two other MM relationships. One is healthy, one is dysfunctional, the other is completely toxic. I'll have more details closer to time. This will be self-pub and come with lots of warning labels. Dark and at times disturbing, mainly in book two.
I was originally going to have it be a menage with a woman, but I decided to give those characters their own book so people could read it, since this book is so dark and some people will probably want to pass on it.
Winchester, Arizona 4 will come out next year if accepted, as will the second book in the Masters of Black Dragon series. I don't have exact dates for these since I'm working on the two McKenna Downs spin-offs at the moment.
Sorry it's taking a while. Writing can be a challenge sometimes with a toddler. LOL An energetic little boy no less. :)
I hope you all are well. Have a great weekend!

Beautiful Music Video & Such Things I Realized

This is off-subject, but there's this music video by Katy Perry for the song, "Thinking of You." It's a sad, beautiful song, and it's obvious from the video that she's a fan of The Notebook.
But here's where it gets interesting. Maybe I'm the last one to figure this out, but today I just realized that the video isn't her own take on the movie at random. She's portraying a deeper look at Finn and Sarah, the two friends of the main characters in The Notebook. I can't believe I just realized that. The guy that she loves in the video looks kind of like Finn, Katy Perry is a brunette like Sarah in the movie, and SPOILER: the guy dies. :(
It's a heartbreaking video, but beautifully made, and I love it even more now that I know she might have intended it to be a depiction of Finn and Sarah.
Enjoy. :)

Paperback - Mellie's Angel & Believing in Mellie (Men of McKenna Downs 2 & 3)

Joy! Mellie's Angel & Believing in Mellie, books two and three in the Men of McKenna Downs serial were bound together into one paperback called Men of McKenna Downs. :) The book is available on both Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
This is a five-book serial and needs to be read in order. The fifth book is the happily ever after for the characters.

[Siren LoveXtreme Forever: Erotic Cowboy Ménage Romance, M/F/M/M/M/M, voyeurism, light sensation play, ice play, HEA for M/F/M]
Melanie Laurie misses Jake O'Neil, one of her bosses, while he's away on business. Her attraction to his older brother, Hunter, confuses her. Jake encourages their attraction, and Mellie is weak against Hunter’s sweet disposition and his smooth, sexy way of talking.
Hunter O'Neil always knew the woman of his dreams would come into his life to complete him, his brothers, and their friend, Diego Sanchez. As he and Mellie spend time together and begin to fall for each other, Hunter knows he'll have to tell her what makes him different from his brothers. That part is easy compared to the knowledge that one day he and his brothers will have to tell Mellie about the town secret in McKenna Downs and pray that she doesn't walk away from them for good.
Meanwhile, the stalker follows the trail of Mellie's past, drawing ever closer and threatening someone she loves to draw her out in the open.
NOTE! You are purchasing Siren's newest serialized imprint, the LoveXtreme Forever Series. This is book 2 of 5 in the Men of McKenna Downs collection. These books are not stand-alone. Each is a continuation of the previous book and must be read in the numbered order. The final book contains a happily forever after for the heroine and all her men.

Believing in Mellie:

[Siren LoveXtreme Forever: Erotic Cowboy Ménage Romance, M/F/M/M/M, with M/M elements, consensual BDSM elements, spanking, paddling, sensation play, gun play, sex toys, HEA]
Melanie Laurie flies to California with Emmett O'Neil and Diego Sanchez to make sure her sister is safe. Mellie knows that eventually she will be the wife of all five cowboys she works for, but she wonders if she can be the submissive that Greyson O'Neil and Diego need. She can’t resist Emmett’s suave charisma and his tell-it-like it-is honesty, but as she submits to his training, she realizes she wants more from the former player than any woman has ever had with him.
Emmet is skeptical at first that any one woman could be the one to satisfy the five of them, but as he introduces Mellie to BDSM and sees the sincerity of her compassionate nature, he can't protect the heart he swore to guard with his life.
The stalker learns of Mellie's love interests and decides it's time to punish her and make her aware of him, even if that means resorting to murder.
Note: Contains scenes of consensual gun play for sexual titillation.

Paperback - Mellie's Cowboy (Men of McKenna Downs 1)

For those of you who prefer to read paperbacks over ebooks, Mellie's Cowboy (Men of McKenna Downs 1) is available in paperback on Amazon and at Barnes & Noble. This is book one of five in this serial. These books have to be read in order.



Word Count: 40,236
[Siren LoveXtreme Forever: Erotic Cowboy Ménage Romance, M/F/M/M/M/M, food play, sex toy, HFN for M/F]
Troubled by her past, Melanie Laurie leaves Boston and takes a job as a housekeeper for five men in the small town of McKenna Downs, South Dakota. She finds the dinky cowpoke town on the Great Plains fascinating with its ménage relationships, but there’s something different about the place that no one seems ready to divulge. On the way to her new job she gives a hunky cowboy a ride so he can return a stray calf to its owner, not realizing he’s one of her bosses.
Jake O'Neil takes one look at the curvy sweetheart and knows that she's the one for him, his three brothers, Greyson, Hunter, and Emmett, and their ranch hand, Diego Sanchez. All he has to do is convince the woman he's dubbed Mellie that he wants her as more than just the maid.
Unbeknownst to them, a stalker looms in the shadows, determined that Melanie will be his.
NOTE! You are purchasing Siren's newest serialized imprint, the LoveXtreme Forever Series. This is Book 1 of 5 in the Men of McKenna Downs collection. These books are not stand-alone.

WIPs, Updates, & Sheer Joy About Autumn

Hey, guys! I figured I should do an update to let you know what I'm working on and some kind of idea when stuff will be released.
First off, it was slightly cooler today! Fall is coming! :D
Okay, now to the books. I'm working on getting my website and a few other things done that are related to that. I'm hoping to have a newsletter sent out here soon. The sign up is on my website. As soon as my website is finished, I'll post a link. It's mostly set up, but I need to update it.

I had to move the release date for Haunting Siren (Midnight Fetish 1) because I had a book coming out for the month I scheduled it for. I want to have it come out in October since I don't have any other books being released at that time.

On the WIP front, I'm currently working on a spin-off serial to the Men of McKenna Downs serial. This one is about Danielle Hartwell and six men. :) I'm going to stick it in three or four books because six books would be a lot, but for proper character development with that many men plus the angsty side characters involved, it really needs at least three books. If I stay on schedule and Siren accepts this serial, the first book would probably come out in early spring.

After that I've got to get started on Masters of Black Dragon 2, which is about Miranda Langley and her two Doms, Jason and Armand. It would probably come out early next year. I'm new to Evernight, so I'm not as familiar with their schedule yet.

I have Winchester, Arizona 4 started, which is based on the witch, Lorelei Presley and the five Dark brothers who are cowboys and jaguar shifters. This will be a stand-alone book as will the remaining three books in the series. To space things evenly, this book would probably come out in the fall of next year.

I'm also working on a dark and at times disturbing project that really explores the human psyche. I go back and forth on publishing it, but I most likely will. At the moment it's based on two sets of characters in different romantic relationships. One is MM and the other is MFMMMM menage. It's very character driven. There's a plot, but it's super character focused compared to the balance I usually strive for. Not saying that's a bad thing. It's just different. I'm about halfway done with it. All I can say is seriously read the warning label on this one. This is one of those series you read if you have no triggers and like dark books that explore the human psyche, have a ton of angst, and very flawed characters. I plan on self-publishing it. I'll post more closer to time.

On the erotica front, I have the sequel to Where the Rebel Flag Still Waves started. It'll be a bit until I'm able to get back to it, but depending on Pink Flamingo's schedule, I'm hoping the book will be out in the fall of next year. It's tough to say, though.

I have some other WIPs as well, but as far as what would come out next year, this is how it looks so far. Temptation, Wyoming 8 is one I'm excited about writing, but with my schedule, a toddler, and moving next year, it probably won't come out until early 2016. That book will be on Brenda and her three men in uniform. Oh yeah, and there are bear shifters in it. :) The bad guy in Tempted by Brothers (Temptation, Wyoming 7) will be in it as will the main characters from that book. Important to the plot. If by some miracle I'm able to get it done early and have it come out next year instead, I'll let you know.

That's all for now. I hope you're enjoying the commencement of fall or spring depending on which hemisphere you're in. :)

Masters of Black Dragon, 1


Kayla Sanders has loved the three Langley brothers since childhood, but her youth and innocence keep them from acting on their feelings for her. Undaunted, she goes to California and seeks the help of Hugh Randall, a Dom, to train her in BDSM so she will be the submissive woman the Langleys want. 
She never counted on falling for the Dom who trains her or on falling for Virgil Paisley, the hot cowboy in a white Stetson who comes to her aid when duty calls Hugh away mysteriously. 
When Kayla returns to Kentucky, Travis, Keith, and Jake Langley profess their love to her. But a predator from Kayla’s past wants her back, and when she least expects it Hugh and Virgil walk back into her life. All five men want her, but none of them are willing to back down. Will she have to choose from among all of them, or is there another way?
Be Warned: menage sex (MFMMMM), BDSM, double vaginal penetration, caning, spanking
