Ramblings of a Writer Blog

Once again, the calendar has clicked over. We’re venturing into another unknown but with each passing day, I think we’re gathering hope. 

Last year wasn’t a great one for me on a personal level. Because of that, I didn’t get a lot of writing done, only releasing 4 books. However, I’m not complaining. As long as I’m writing at all, I’m content. 

But that doesn’t mean I’m settling. I want more for myself and I’ve decided I’m going to make 2022 my bitch. 

Like many others, I’m prone to make resolutions, and like so many others, I tend to fizzle out within the first few days. This year, I’ve opted to focus my efforts inward as a whole. I’m calling it my “Challenge Me” year. It’s exactly like it sounds, but rather than ticking items off a list, I’m challenging myself on a broader level. I’ll let you know how it goes as the year progresses.

In the meantime, I figured I could share with you my writing goals.

6 Releases This Year!

Now first the disclaimer … this list is how I want the words to play out. That does not mean they always will. I can say that I will do my best. 

  • February 2022: SECRETS (Brantley Walker: Off the Books, 6) – The release date is already set for February 22, 2022, so this one is a definite. Stay tuned, details will be coming soon.
  • March 2022: FILTHY HOT BILLIONAIRE (Standalone Novel) This is a super sexy ménage that I’ve been working on for a while. I’m loving it! 
  • May 2022: BEAUTIFULLY IRRESISTIBLE (Southern Boy Mafia, 3) I have been planning to write Rock’s book for a long, long time. Once you read SECRETS, you will get a glimpse into what to expect with this one.
  • August 2022: CONFESSIONS (Brantley Walker: Off the Books, 7) Brantley and Reese still have more to their story, so stay tuned for the next in their series.
  • September 2022: UNTITLED (Winner from Naughty Holidays 2021 Voting) If you read Naughty Holidays 2021, then you have some idea which direction my original couple (now a throuple) is going. 
  • November 2022: TREY (The Walkers of Coyote Ridge, 11) You’ve seen Trey Walker in the Brantley Walker series as a member of the task force. I have suspected all along that he was going to have his own book and then Magnus came along and confirmed it. This will be the year for them.
Naughty Holidays 2021 Winner!
12312021 NH21 Winner


I can’t tell you how excited I am that Samantha, Logan, and Elijah won from the readers’ votes. Because of this, they will be getting a novel of their own! And if you’ve read Naughty Holidays 2021, you already know what might be in store for them. I’m looking forward to exploring their relationship with them.

I hope at least something in this post makes you happy. 

But to quell my own curiosity, comment below with the book you are looking forward to most? (It doesn’t have to be on the list, either, but it does need to be one of mine)

  1. I like your resolutions and I hope you stick to them, it could make for a very interesting year!!
    I’m loving your schedule for 2022 and I look forward to anything you write but Trey appeals to me greatly. If I’m honest the winning book is the one in least looking forward to, I can’t say why because I don’t know why that is, I was really hoping that Rush would win, a change is as good as a rest so they say.

    Good luck for 2022, I hope your words flow easily, I can’t wait for these books.

  2. I am super excited for more Logan, Samantha and Elijah! I did vote for them! However, I always want more Brantley!! ❤️

  3. Very Excited about Beautifully Irresistible … I LOVE the Southern Boy Mafia series!!

    Grateful you are writing and glad you are ready for a better year. I enJOY your books immensely!

    Happy Writing!

  4. Yeah to Naughty Holiday’s 2021 winner. I suspected deep down Samantha, Logan, and Elijah would be outstanding winners. There just appears to be life expectations that are still left unspoken between the 3. So looking forward to what their future holds. Now ‘Off The Books” mm, mm, mmmm… bring it on and yes – 🍾 on Southern Boy Mafia #3. Have been waiting…😮‍💨

    Congrats on your year of 2021 but 2022 will be better

    Stay safe and counting down the days to watch release
    👀 🥰 🍾🍾

  5. I love everything you wrote. I’m excited for all of your upcoming books, but it’s a tie between Rock’s book and Trey’s book. Stay safe, healthy. One day at a time.

  6. I am very excited about all of them! Although looking forward to Trey and the follow up to the Naughty Christmas story (Sam, Logan and Elijah) the most. I am ready for some happy endings this year tho. 😉

  7. Southern Boy Mafia!! Whohooooo. ..been waiting so long to go back! Second is anything Brantley and am really excited about the “dirty billionaire” no one does dirty like you!! True story! I will really try to be a good sport about Logan and Samantha winning 😔 I mean it was Sam I disliked immensely so maybe Eli and Logan can refocus me!!! 🔥

  8. So! Sorry! Inadvertently turned your “filthy hot billionaire” into a “dirty one” I am sure he will end up dirty though… 😆😆
