Holes in my wall, Announcements, and 24 Hours of Kink!

It’s finally here! I’m in final line edits for the second novella in my Portland Rebel Series, The Hierarchy of Needs. The pub date for this friends-to-lovers twice over story isn’t until July, but the cover reveal is coming up in less than two weeks. (If you’re a blogger and want to participate, sign ups are with Express Blog Tours.)

This book was the most difficult writing experience I’ve had so far. In fact, there’s a nice little hole gouged into my wall from the time I slammed my door in frustration when I couldn’t get a section right.

See? There it is. Hubs was not thrilled with me, to say the least. Good thing I know how to spackle!

But after five drafts, tears with my crit partners, and three more revisions with my super awesome editor Christa, I’ve finally got the story right, and I’m so excited to share Dean and Jamie with you! Here’s a little teaser to whet your appetites:

Dean had the mouth of an open beer bottle by his lips, but paused when he saw her, his lips curling up into a smirk. His chin was masked by the day’s worth of stubble he always seemed to have. His crop of dirty blond hair was cut close on the sides but longer in the front, a few slightly mussed strands hanging down low over his eyes. Every inch of him said confident and relaxed, from his ever-present work boots to the swirling lines of ink that wound like ivy from his wrist to his neck.

He was sex incarnate, a wolf on the prowl in a black T-shirt and jeans.

Look for more updates on The Hierarchy of Needs soon!

Next, I’ve got an update to share! My first full length novel, previously titled The Binds That Heal, has a shiny new name! It’s now His Contract, and is the first book in my Legally Bound series, due out in November from Samhain. It’s my May-December love story of a widower dominant law professor and a young paralegal submissive set in one of Boston’s most prestigious law firms and amidst the backdrop of a case with mafia ties. Think BDSM meets the TV show, Suits.

Lastly, I’m participating in Laci Page’s Twenty-four Hours of Kink event on Facebook! Meet new-to-you kinky authors to add to your to-be-read list, have fun, win prizes! It starts tonight at 8:00 pm EST, but I’ll be running for an exciting half hour tomorrow morning from 8:30-9 am EST, so grab your coffee and spend a lazy Saturday morning with me. There will be giveaways, games, and of course, kink. Can’t forget the kink. 😉
