Writing Plans for 2015

It’s going to be a busy, busy year. 🙂

Now you’ve been warned. Let’s have a look at what’s on the schedule for me for 2015.

For years, I’ve alternated between series, because that keeps my view of the world of the books fresh. It also means, though, that linked books are published about 8 months apart. I’m going to try to switch that around this year, because you all seem to like to see linked books published in closer succession. This is the Big Challenge.

Firestorm Forever, A Dragonfire Novel and paranormal romance by Deborah Cooke1 • Firestorm Forever

This is #11 in my Dragonfire series of paranormal romances featuring dragon shape shifter heroes, and the big wrap-up of the Dragon’s Tail Wars. It’s Sloane’s book—because the Apothecary has to heal the world—and will be published in March. You can read an excerpt right here or download one from my online store, right here.

This book is getting big, as there are lots of loose ends to tie up, but it’s NOT the end of my dragon shifter stories. It’s the end of the Dragon’s Tail Wars, but I’m not nearly done with the Pyr.

The Crusader's Bride, a medieval romance by Claire Delacroix2 • The Champions of Saint Euphemia

This is a new series of linked medieval romances, following the journey of a company of knights home from Jerusalem. They’re each going back to Europe for their own reasons, but have accepted a quest to deliver a chest to Paris. They don’t know until they’re on the road that someone wants the contents of that chest badly enough to kill for it—and they don’t know each other, much less who to trust.

The Crusader’s Bride is the first in this series, and will be available in May. I’m hoping to publish this series in fairly rapid succession. (Fingers crossed.) You can read an excerpt from this book on my website, right here, or download a longer one from my store, right here.

 

3 • Beyond the Champions

The schedule beyond the Champions of Saint Euphemia gets a bit murky, mostly because I’m not sure yet how long those books will be. The books, though, are perfectly clear to me. It’s likely that some of these projects will slide into 2016, but after the Champions comes:
Dragonfire Legend, a trilogy of historical romances featuring the Pyr
A Dragonfire Companion, which will be published simultaneously with Dragonfire Legend
• A new contemporary romance series – details to come
• A new medieval romance series set at Inverfyre – details to come

Now you can see why I need to stay home and write in 2015! I’ll also be mixing up some backlist titles into new boxed sets – which could count either as promotion or as writing plans. You can find out about the first one of those for 2015 in tomorrow’s post.

  1. Does this mean since you’ll be done with the main characters from your first pyr series youll be working on the books for Zoe & Jared, Nick & Isabel & the others? I loved those characters and can’t wait to read their adult books! 😄

  2. Great! I love ALL your pyr books! I own all of them and each of their story’s has been wonderful! I look forward to firestorm forever! I just had to ask about the “kids” because I fell in love with all of them in Zoe’s books. And poor Isabel was hurting in the last book so I can’t wait for things to get better for her! 😉 I haven’t read your Claire Delacroix series yet but I plan on it! Thank you for such wonderful books & characters that linger in the mind even when the books have been put away for awhile! 💜
