Volume 7

Busy, busy, busy...

Good morning! Happy Monday! 

In case you missed it, I released a book last Friday! Primal Instincts, Volume 2 is now available, and it’s on sale for $0.99 for a limited time. Plus, it’s in Kindle Unlimited, also for a limited time!

I think busy, busy, busy sums up this week rather well. I have a lot going on besides writing and promoting the most recent release. If you’ve been keeping up with the Primal Instincts releases, you know that the preorders for Volume 3, 4, and 5 are available on Amazon already (you can preorder them for $0.99 each – the sale price lasts for the week after each release). That means they are written, edited, and ready to go. Of course, a lot goes into getting the books finalized for release day, and that’s what I’m working on this week. Staying ahead of this is the only way for me to maintain my sanity. And since I’m writing every second I can, I have to force myself to stay on task.

I have also started back on my daily walk with Hennessy and Moscato, although they are very short at the moment. Before Hennessy’s injury, we walked for 30 minutes every morning. And that was after they went on a 30-minute walk with the hubs first thing. Unfortunately, that had to stop when he was injured and then after his surgery. Now that he’s 6 weeks post-op, we are starting to do 10 minutes once a day. Three months without walking, and you’d think they had never been on a walk before. However, they are enjoying it. 

Wish me luck this week. It might not sound like a lot, but focusing is half the battle.

Have a great week!

Much Love!


Epic Cuteness… a.k.a. my pups

That little smirk. He does it all the time.
They don't usually share a seat, but when they do...
If only we could all sleep in such awkward positions.

My husband… *shaking my head*

What the hubs sent for Valentine's Day
And the note that came with it. (P.S. we don't actually know anyone named Frank - it is the name we gave to my body pillow)
Hennessy thought the note was funny

What I'm writing...

I finished Volume 5 yesterday. It had been mostly written already, but somewhere along the way, something changed. I won’t give you any spoilers, but I’ll tell you, you don’t want to miss it. Volume 6 is mostly finished, but it requires a rewrite to accommodate this new shift. Stay tuned.

What I'm reading...

I am still feeding my CD Reiss craving. I’m on Book 3 of the Manhattan Mafia series. If you’re interested, you’ll want to start with Book 1, Take Me. If you like forced marriage tropes and/or anti-heroes, I think you’ll like this.

What I'm watching...

Ray Donovan

A professional "fixer" for the rich and famous in Los Angeles, can make anyone's problems disappear except those created by his own family.

I have been watching this show for a while now. I took a break for a little while because it gets dark at points and a little repetitive, but I really like it. If for no other reason than Liev Schreiber is hot.
