This year, I’m determined to get ahead of my publication schedule, so that books are done and loaded well in advance of publication. This will make it easier for me to plan and also to promote those books. This means I need to delay publication on some things. In future, I won’t tell you what I’m working on until it’s loaded for pre-order (and done). So, we’re in a little transition phase.
First up, the publication date for Bad Case of Loving You moved to April 16.
Next, One Knight’s Return‘s publication date moved to May 21.
Third, Some Like It Hot moved the fall – it now has an October 29 publication date. At this point, I’m thinking it will be the last Flatiron Five book, but we’ll see.
What goes in the gaps?
Under the Mistletoe will be a September release. It makes more sense to publish a Christmas book in the fall than in the spring, after all. I’ll give you the links once it’s loaded at the portals. Chynna’s story will be the last Secret Heart Ink book
Here Be Dragons will be a July release, one way or the other. Again, I’ll give you the links once it’s loaded at the portals.
What comes after that? I’ll tell you once the links are live! I have so many covers that I’ve already commissioned, but might do something entirely new.

The second Dragonfire bundle is Dragonfire Elixir, coming March 26 and available for pre-order now.
Dragonfire Elixir is the second digital bundle in The Dragonfire Novels: The Complete Series and includes three books that feature the battle between the Pyr, dragon shifters pledged to defend the treasures of the earth, and the evil Slayers, dragon shifters bent on destroying both the Pyr and the humans they protect. These three books feature the Pyr‘s mission to destroy the Dragon’s Blood Elixir which gives the Slayers the power to raise the dead.
In Winter Kiss, Delaney Shea who has been forcefed the Elixir is determined to destroy its source alone, no matter the cost to himself. On the eve of his suicide mission, he feels the spark of his firestorm and seduces Ginger Sinclair to leave a legacy for the future. But Ginger isn’t so easily abandoned, even for her own safety—she follows Delaney and becomes part of the mission to destroy the Elixir’s source, and save Delaney for herself and their son.
In Whisper Kiss, Niall Talbot has vowed to hunt down and eliminate the remaining shadow dragons, then is targeted by the Slayers himself. When his firestorm ignites and his mate—the feisty tattoo artist and dragon enthusiast Rox Kincaid—is at risk, Niall will do anything to defend her—even abandon his own assumptions when opposites attract.
In Darkfire Kiss, Rafferty Powell is bent on the destruction of the Slayer Magnus, since the two old foes have exchanged challenge coins and vowed to battle to the death. He doesn’t expect his destined mate to step between them, but reporter Melissa Smith will take any risk to get the real story—even enter the dragon’s den, fight fire with fire, and fall in love with the greatest romantic of the Pyr. Will it be enough to save them both from Magnus’ vengeance?
Coming March 26.

I’m participating in the Fangs, Fur, and Immortals paranormal romance promotion this month at BookFunnel. Promotions like this are great ways to discover new series to love.
You’ll find Kiss of Fire on the landing page as well as Wyvern’s Mate, plus a lot more paranormal romance reads.
Here’s the landing page. Happy browsing!
I did an interview with Debbie Haupt at the Reading Frenzy about Wyvern’s Angel, and it’s posted today. We chatted about books and writing and my various series.
Come on over!
The Dragon Diaries is a paranormal YA trilogy which is a spin-off from Dragonfire. It tells the story of Zoë Sorensson’s coming of age as the next Wyvern of the Pyr. There will be new editions of all three books in September of this year – although the new editions of the first two books won’t be available in all territories.
Here are the new covers. Once again, I was able to license the original cover illustration from the artist.
The Allison & Busby Commonwealth English editions of the first two books remain available in both print and digital, exclusively in the exclusive territories and non-exclusively in the non-exclusive territories. (What does that mean? The UK is an exclusive territory, therefore only the A&B editions are available there. Canada is a non-exclusive territory, therefore both the A&B editions and my new editions are available there.) The A&B editions look like this:
Since A&B didn’t acquire the rights to Flying Blind, the new edition of that book will be available everywhere.
Click through on the covers to my Dragonfire website, where the detail about these books resides, to find more information about each book and pre-order links (more will be added as they become available).
I’ve moved the publication date for Wyvern’s Angel into May. It turns out that the Pyr – my Dragonfire shifters – are consuming a lot of my time, as I prepare the new editions of the first eight Dragonfire books. We have a system now, and are past the halfway point, but Wyvern’s Angel isn’t written yet.
Boo. I’m not thrilled about making this change, but reality sometimes bites.
If you pre-ordered at Nook, please cancel your pre-order and wait for the new link. I unpublished the book there but a new buy link will reappear closer to the publication date. I’m changing the distribution method for getting my books at Nook. This shouldn’t be your issue, but I learned this week that Nook will merrily fulfil pre-orders for books that have been unpublished, even if there isn’t a book file. Gah. Better that you cancel the order now, rather than try to get a refund in April. I’m trying to get them to sort this out at the back end, but the easiest solution is for you to cancel your pre-order.
The next book in the Dragons of Incendium series will be Wyvern’s Angel and the pre-order is live at iBooks, Kobo, and Nook.
Bond is a secret spy for the Gloria Furore space pirates, a former member of Princess Anguissa’s crew, and a fallen angel with a taste for forbidden pleasures. He can’t resist the temptation of bad choices. He knows he should disappear from Incendium before Anguissa discovers his deception, but he isn’t counting on her enticing younger sister. Bond should know better than to get involved with a dragon shifter princess, but Percipia knows how to get exactly what she wants from him. She offers him a challenge, with irresistible side benefits, and Bond finds himself snared. He should walk away and he knows it, but Percipia’s brand of persuasion feels too much like heaven for Bond to ever want to stop…
Coming April 24, 2018.
The Amazon link will be live around the end of January, and the GooglePlay link will be live on the on-sale date. Visit the landing page on the Dragons of Incendium website to see a larger version of the cover.
The next book in the Dragons of Incendium series is Wyvern’s Outlaw. I revealed the cover at RTC Ottawa last weekend and now it’s up for pre-order for November 29 delivery.
Ryke wants nothing more than to escape the space pirates of the Gloria Furore and go home to his young son. He’s pretended to share their views and has worked his way up the ranks to co-pilot of the Armada Seven, commanded by the most vicious space captain of all. The capture of Princess Anguissa and her ship, the Archangel, is a moment of triumph for his superior—except that Anguissa never plays by anyone’s rules. In a flash of dragon fire, she incinerates most of the crew and takes command of the Armada Seven. Ryke is spared, but he’s not sure why—what plans does the beautiful dragon princess have for his future? And what will she demand to grant his wish of returning home?
Coming November 29!
Pre-order available at these portals – the Amazon link will be live at the beginning of September:
