And in other news...

I've been sitting on this news for awhile. Sometimes it feels like an eternity, but my agent (man, I will NEVER get tired of being able to say THAT) gave me the go ahead to spill the beans. Besides, it was posted on Publisher's Marketplace this week, so here goes... My new paranormal/urban fantasy romance series will be published by Carina Press (Harlequin) starting around Septemberish of this year! There are currently 5 books planned in the series and not a vampire or shifter in sight :). It's about an ancient, secret race of humans on the brink of extinction. There's bad guys, good guys and HOT guys LOL. Each book will feature a 'fated pair' as they struggle to learn who and what they are and join the fight to save their race. Although this is a different sub-genre to my contemporary stories, the books still feature hot, alpha heroes, relateable, strong heroines and a deep, emotional love story above everything else.

I can't tell you how excited I am about these books. I've fallen way deep in love with these heroes. Yeah, I know. I say that about all my books. Of course, if I don't fall in love with the hero I'm writing, I don't know how the heroine (or the readers) could :).

I'm super excited on a number of fronts. This will be my first series and I had such fun putting together a broader story arc through the multiple books, in addition to the individual book's story. Also, this is a genre I love to read in. It so liberating and empowering to be able to create your own world, make up all the rules, construct the boundaries. You world build to a certain degree in contemporary, but this gave me much more freedom and allowed my imagination to run wild! Not always a good thing, but I think it turned out well in this case :).

And by the way...I love contemporary too much to give that up, so stay tuned for future books on that front as well! I'm hard at work on a couple of books there.

This year is off to an awesome start!
