Some personal news...I'm pregnant!

I'm so excited to share some personal news with all of you today... I'm pregnant! My husband and I are expecting our first child, a beautiful baby girl, in November 💗💗


Being an amazing mother to our new daughter is obviously going to be my number one priority, but one of the things I love most about being an author is the flexibility it provides! I control my own schedule. I'm my own boss. And while I will definitely take some time off when she's born, please rest assured, I have NO plans to stop writing. My career is hugely important to me!

Since I'm an indie author, all of the publishing process for my books depends on me, so my schedule will probably slow down a bit. Because of that, I wanted to post a few updates about my upcoming releases, so you have an idea of when to expect new books from me. 

I'm so excited for this new chapter in my life! Thank you all for being part of the ride with me!

The Raven and the Dove Audiobook - July 2020

The audiobook for The Raven and the Dove is still expected to be completed in July 2020, so it's coming soon! I should have some teasers for you in another month :) It's going to be great!



The Hunter and the Mage - September 2020

The Hunter and the Mage is still set to be released on September 21, 2020! The ebook is currently available to pre-order (and don't forget to check out the pre-order goodies -- there are exclusive character cards up for grabs!). The hardcover and paperback editions are expected to go on pre-order in August, and I will let you know as soon as that happens. The audiobook should release in September or October 2020. 




Untitled The Raven and the Dove Book 3 - Summer 2021

I'm already about 25k words into the manuscript for Book 3 (title to be revealed in the fall!) and I intend to have it completed before the baby arrives. The pre-order will go live in early Sept 2020, and the book will go on sale next June/July. 

I'm also planning to have Book 4 fully outlined and ready to write before the baby arrives. I'm currently hoping to release it in Winter 2022 (around Feb/March). While these releases are a little further apart than my usual schedule, they're still closer together than traditionally published books, so I'm taking it as a win :)



Untitled Kay Marie Romance - Coming in 2021

Here's where my schedule gets ambitious, lol, I'm hoping to launch a new romantic comedy series next year! This super fun Bachelor-inspired series has been percolating for a while, but recently the ideas have just been flowing so I know I need to follow my inspiration :) The first book will be a second chance romance, the sequel a fake relationship romance, and the third enemies-to-lovers! I might add more books down the road, but let's start with three 😂

I'll be sharing more news about this soon, but for now, here's the current tagline for book one: "Eight years ago he broke her heart. Now his career depends on helping her find love...with someone else."

I'm also toying with this one... "28 single men. 6 weeks around the world. 1 ex-boyfriend behind the camera. Are you ready for the adventure of a lifetime?"

And that's the schedule for the next year or two! 

Obviously, I will let you know if anything changes. Until then, follow me on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram for more updates about my pregnancy and my upcoming releases 💗

Thank you all!!

  1. Congratulations! First time parents - so exciting! Hopefully you get some good nights of sleep after baby is born. Tired parents is the not fun part. And, you’ll discover that going anywhere with baby requires a car full of baby things. I’ve got 4 kids. My youngest is now 12 and my oldest is 23. I love every one of them!

  2. Congrats!! Baby comes first, deadlines secondary. Dont sweat the small stuff. Ignore most of the advice. *eye roll* Every one loves to give new parents their dos and don'ts, and judgement, but you will be be happier if you do your own research instead. Let hubby fawn over you & pitch in, you've earned it and will need it.
    I love being my daughter's mommy! I think she came to us perfect, and I just have to get out of the way.

    Recommending Becky Bailey, Conscious Discipline "Discipline is not what you do to children, it is what create within them". Our fav is I love you rituals and we use emotional intelligence instead of physical, bodily punishment as that can be out of a parents' anger which has zero benefit, as seen in many, many studies.
    Good luck Mamma!
