First, an update on Conquest Book 7, FEELING THE RHYTHM. For those who have been following my progress with the book, you know my editor and I were shooting to have it release by no later than December of this year. Well, we're going to make that. In fact, we're going to beat that. I'm pleased to announce that as of right now, FEELING THE RHYTHM is slated to release on November 23rd at MLR Press! My editor and I have been hard at work on it to hit this date. Now, as always, the release date is subject to change, but it's looking good for the 23rd. I'm going to pull a little sneak peak excerpt from it to share with everyone soon.
So with the Conquest boys getting ready to hit the scene again, that brings me back around to the vampires in the Instincts series. Along with working with the rockers, I've also been writing like a crazy person to get the next Instincts book in to my editor by a November 15th deadline. The good news is, I did it! And it has a title; ADAPTING INSTINCTS. It's another novel length book, though shorter than the others in the series. As it stands now, it's sitting at 67K words, but I could always gain some or lose some during editing. That book is slated for a March release, so it'll be my next release after FEELING THE RHYTHM.
With those two books finished, I'm currently between writing projects, and I plan to keep it that way for a little while. I'm going to take a break to recharge and refresh, and I'm not sure what my next project will be. Or even how long my break will be. It might be a couple weeks, a month, or until the end of the year. It'll last until the urge to write gets too strong to hold back. So you might not hear any new writing news from me for a while, but that doesn't mean I'll be a complete stranger. Who knows? Maybe I'll even have the time to get the Weekly Inspiration posts going again!
Last, but certainly not least, I'm very excited to share a great review for NATURAL INSTINCTS, Book 1 in the Instincts series. This review came in with perfect timing since I just finished writing the 4th book! It was reviewed at one of the hottest review sites around for paranormal themed stories, Bitten by Books, and I'm thrilled to say it received a 5 out of 5 rating! Hooray! My thanks to the reviewer, Booktaster, for taking the time to read it and write up the wonderful review, and to Bitten by Books for posting it on their site.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is that. An update on all I've been up to. I hope it sounds like good news!
