Writing Update: First Manuscript Done for 2014!

So, I finished my manuscript due to Entangled Publishing two days early! This is the sequel to Pan's Conquest, coming out the last week of February. I started writing it in December, so all of it was not written in this new year, but I count the books by which year they are finished, not which year they are started- it keeps me from starting too many projects and not finishing. So, Ares's Temptation is going to be my first finished book of 2014!

This keeps me on track with my 1k a day goal. At 13 days into the new year, I'm at 18k- a little ahead.

My next book is due to HaperImpulse by March 15th, so I'll be working on that next one at the same non-stop speed of about 1k-2k a day.Titled Diva's Handyman, it's the companion book to Duets with Michelangelo, which releases in April.

I also updated my website. I used to group all of my adult books together and all of my young adult books together. But, since I started writing a bunch of Contemporary Romances, I decided to change the headings to "Space Opera," "Contemporary Romance," and "Young Adult." I'm going to put my paranormal romance under contemporary for now, but they might get their own category as well depending on how successful each book is. When Minstrel's Serenade, my epic fantasy romance comes out, I'll need a new "Fantasy" category. As for genres, this is it for me. I'm not going to anymore categories anytime soon.

After a turtle-slow year with only two releases in 2013, I'm looking forward to my 3 upcoming releases in Jan and Feb. Alliance kicks off the year on January 31st!

If you haven't already, please add Alliance "to read" on Goodreads.  Even if you don't plan on reading it anytime soon, it will get the word out. Right now I have 21 people who have added it, and I'd like to get that number up by the 31st!
