Let me sum up my 2021 really briefly for you: there was not a whole lot of the flow I set out to have. Clearly.
If you are subscribed to one or more of my newsletters, it may have felt like I dropped off the face of the earth. Sorry about that.
Surprise! I’m alive! And I am feeling renewed after attending Orlando Reads Books 2021.
By the way, I attended Orlando Reads Books 2021! I was safe, of course—masked up and distanced as often as I could be—but I did get to meet a few readers and I got to set up my table for the first time. (An emphasis is placed on “my” because I’ve previously attended conferences as an assistant, and while that was swell, this brought whole new levels of anxiety and heart-stopping joy to the event.)
Since listening to the many wonderful talks at ORB by indie inspirations such as Elana Johnson, I have decided to lean into what I am good at. I’ve long passed my one-year publishing anniversary, so I think I have enough data to report with absolute confidence that when I give myself immovable deadlines, I will actually, like, give you guys books to read.
So, I’ve done something that is a little dangerous.
I have three 2022 Amazon pre-orders up right now. Before the end of 2021, there will be a fourth one up, too.
Don’t look at me like that.
Or, if you must look at me like that, then scroll down a little and see what all I’m up to while you’re at it.
In St. Louis With You
OUT FEBRUARY 14, 2022
This will be my fourth World’s Fair historical romance, and it’ll also be my last for a while. I’m looking to explore other genres (you’ll see what I mean if you keep scrolling!).
Kate’s husband’s last wish was to have his best friend marry his widow and keep her company. They’ve gone through with it, but grief and guilt still haunt them. Can a day at the Louisiana Purchase Exposition bring them closer, or will they part ways forever?
Updates on Planned Megan Fuentes, Emma Fontaine, and Daphne Cole Books
There used to be three other books listed here, but unfortunately, I’ve had to shelve them for now for the sake of my mental health. I’m making room in my head for major moves in my personal and professional life.
Rest assured, you will see those stories! The timing just didn’t work out the way I hoped.
