Hazards, Wrecked, and Found

I'm super excited to reveal the title of that secret project I've been hinting about. It's called The Hazards of Skinny Dipping, and it's set for a June 11th release! The cover and blurb will be revealed on March 6th. Hazards is a New Adult Romance with a more informal narrator and lots of humor. It's centered around a college freshman, and it's been such a fun book to write.

In other news, I have an official release date for Wrecked. It's coming out on April 30th! I'm excited to share Jake and Emily's story so soon! 

I'll be sending both Wrecked and Hazards off for editing in the next few weeks. Next on the list: write the first draft of Found. I'm seriously excited to get back to Allie and Levi's story. I'll have updates on release dates for my other books soon. 

One last thing. I've had requests for a Team Pteron button. Here you go.

New Releases

Hey Everyone, there have been some fun new releases in the past week I wanted to share!

Jennifer Snyder just released Hereafter, the second book in the Reaper Novella series!

In Death I could finally see the importance of Life…

After being forced to become a Reaper Council member and being torn away from the one she loves, Rowan Harper must learn to accept her altered Fate as well as her death and move on. A task easier said than done, especially when witnessing those you love suffer in the wake of your death.

When an unlikely alli provides information that could change everything, Rowan sets out on a journey through Purgatory with her beloved by her side and a nonchalant Tracker to learn the true meaning of the word sacrifice. Another task which seems easier said than done, especially with the threat of Purgatory’s ability to corrupt your soul the longer you’re in its grip looming above their heads.

Barnes & Noble 

Bethany Lopez also just released Book 3 in her Friends & Lovers Trilogy, Trust in Me!

Roni’s dreams of becoming a contemporary dancer were smashed under the brutal rage of her ex-husband's fists. Getting divorced and starting over at the age of twenty-two was never her plan, but maybe in Texas, she'll find her path. When the town's local player, Rich, opens a Rec Center, she sees a way to rekindle her dancing dreams...and maybe have a little fun with her sexy new boss.
Rich never expected to fulfill his dreams in the town he planned to leave behind, but that's just what he's doing. His reputation as a noncommittal ladies' man might make it challenging to earn respect in the business world, but he's willing to prove that he's serious. In fact, when it comes to pursuing Roni, he's more than willing. But she's taking a page out of his book, not wanting to risk another relationship. Can he convince her that his playboy days are done and that she can trust him with her heart?
You can find Trust in Me Here: Barnes & Noble and Amazon

Check out this excerpt from Flight! 

 In the glimmering of the moonlight Levi studied me, his eyes staring into mine like he was trying to read me. “You’re so beautiful. So unbelievably beautiful...” he trailed off as his lips met mine.
The kiss started off gentle but neither of us could keep it that way for long. It might have been our second kiss, but it was our first real one. I realized quickly that the first time at the bar we had both been holding back. Levi deepened the kiss, his arms tightening around me before lowering me down onto the sand.
We were just close enough to the surf that the sand was damp beneath the bare skin of my shoulders and legs, but it didn’t matter—all thoughts were on Levi. With ragged breaths, he kept his weight braced while leaning down over me. He traced his fingers over my stomach, pushing up the bottom of my tank top. I couldn’t get enough of his touch.

Updates & FAQ

Hey everyone! It’s been a busy few months, and I haven’t given an update post in awhile. I've been getting a lot of questions about release dates and how long different series are going to be. Here’s my best attempt at answering your questions.

Clayton Falls:

I don’t have a set number of books in mind for this series. I have at least a few more planned out, but I’m not going to give any more details until after Wrecked releases.

Coming April 2013

The Crescent Chronicles:

There will be three books total from Allie’s perspective. The third and final book centered on Allie and Levi is Found. Found will be out Summer 2013. Although Allie and Levi’s story will be finished after Found, there may be more Crescent Chronicles books in the future that have new POVs.

Coming Summer 2013

The Afterglow Trilogy

I am working on Enduring Light. It’s going well, but it’s taking longer than expected. I may have to push the release off until this summer to make sure I’m 100% happy with it.

Coming Summer 2013


Corded is designed as a stand-alone. However, I have left open the possibility for other stories set in the same world.

Coming Spring/Summer 2013

Mystery Project

There may also be a surprise coming your way this spring.  More details to come. J
