One Month to Go!

In just one month's time, I'll be releasing Alien's Mercy, my entry into the Outlaw Planet Mates shared world series. It's so good to be working with so many other authors on a project like this!

And that's not the only release of mine coming up! The Monsters After Dark anthology is out on the 26th of October, and has a story from me in it too. It's going to be a busy few weeks!

Now it's off to sleep for me (2am here!). Just needed to let this out into the world.

Tied to the Alien Tyrant is coming...

Yes, it's finally here - Tied to the Alien Tyrant, the third book of the Crashland Castaway Romances, will be out on Tuesday the 20th July! I know it's been a long time coming, but the wait is over. I'm really pleased with the book and so happy that it's finally getting into readers' hands.

That leaves the question of what I'll write next. I have a couple of projects I've committed to: a short story for an anthology and then a shared-world novella with some amazing author friends of mine. After that, I think I'll head back to Crashland for the third trilogy, the Crashland Contact Romances. That's enough work to be getting on with, I think!

But for now, I'm too excited about Tied to the Alien Tyrant's upcoming release to start writing anything else. I can't wait to see what you all think of it.

Cover Reveal! Tied to the Alien Tyrant

Cover reveal for Tied to the Alien Tyrant, a science fiction romance

Look at that cover, isn't it a beauty? I may be biased - let me know what you think?

I love a good cover reveal, but it'll be a little while before Tied to the Alien Tyrant is out - it still needs edits, and once that's done, I can format it and set it loose on Amazon! But this is the sixth Crashland book, making the Crashland Romances my longest science fiction romance series to date, pulling one book ahead of the Dragons of Mars series. I'm excited by that.

After that it's onto the Unnamed Project which I really ought to title, and then it'll be back to Crashland for the third trilogy, the Crashland Contact Romances. I've got the three books plotted, so hopefully they'll be quicker to write than this one has been, though I can't make any promises - science fiction romance can be tough to predict.

A Beginning and an End + Science Fiction Romance News

Hopefully, anyway! Today I gor my first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine, and I'm feeling wiped out by it. Or, I expect, I'm feeling worn out because I'm letting go of a big worry I hadn't really noticed. Perhaps that means I'll be able to sleep a full night? That would be nice.

Science Fiction Romance News

In writing news, I reached the end of Tied to the Alien Tyrant, the third book in the Crashland Castaway Romances. There's still a lot of work to do before I can publish it, but this marks an important stepping-stone. I know it's been a long time between books, and I'm sorry about that, but this past year has been hard on me. With luck I'll be able to put that behind me and get to work seriously on my next project... I have another science fiction romance book planned in the near future, and it's very exciting! I'll let you know more when it has things like a title and a launch date!

Good News, Medium News, Fun News

The good news is that I've nearly finished my next book, Chained to the Alien Champion. The second of the Crashland Castaway Romances, I've enjoyed writing about a grumpy Zrin warrior (who you might recognize if you've read Bound to the Alien Barbarian) and the sassy human he recognizes as his mate.

She'll be familiar, too, if you read Ronan! Not that you have to have read either to enjoy Chained, but there's a little bonus for those of you who've followed along.

It's been a lot of fun to write about the Zrin and show more of their culture and their home. I really love my Crashland books, and I hope you do too!

The medium news is that I'm not sure what to write next.  I experimented this year, alternating between Crashland and the Salvaged Hearts series, and I don't think that worked out very well. I could keep that going, though, and write the third Salvaged Hearts book... or go straight on to the third Crashland Castaway Romance. Which would you prefer to see? Let me know in the comments if you have an opinion!

The fun news is that I've taken up art after many, many years away. I'm going to be practicing by sketching characters and setting stuff from my books, and if any of you have suggestions of who or what you'd like to see me draw (badly). 

I've started out with Munchkin, the ship's cat aboard the Ladies' Choice in the Salvaged Hearts series. And I made him a little badge too. Have a look and tell me what you think!
