I’ve only started to get serious about my writing in the last year, and what a year it has been! I had attended an author event for Sarah M. Eden, although I didn’t really know who she was at the time. It was then that I realized I didn’t want to write for fun anymore. I sat down that very night, scrolled through Pinterest to find something to spark a book idea, and thus, Bloodborn was forged!

I am so excited to finally say that I’m finished writing the Bloodborn series. Luca and Kirsa’s journey comes to a conclusion in book five, wrapping up at 91,000 words. I first started the Bloodborn series with the characters Adam and Willow, Bloodborn getting contracted with the Wild Rose Press. Only earlier this week did I send the second in the series to my editor, and now I’m crossing my fingers that it will get contracted as well!
Bloodborn started when I decided to use a writing prompt, which spurred an idea, which spurred a book, which inspired a series. At the beginning, I never thought this would gain the traction that it had, but I’m so excited it did! I do have an idea for a novella in mind for this series, but I hope to include it for free for readers in my upcoming newsletter.
I’ll likely be working on my regency romance series. I’m finished with the first book, I Am Marianne, and I’m two chapters into my second, Just Jane.
Now all I have to do is name this fifth book…
Edit: Is the series really over? Then why am I getting an idea for a sixth??? It never ends!!!
“Zachariah and Laurel continued splashing and laughing, at least until she jumped up on him, wrapping her legs around his waist and her arms around his neck. Her lips smashed into his, and he grunted in surprise as a spark ignited inside him starting at his core and smoldering through him until searing fire shot to his fingertips. Passionate. Ravenous. Embers that fanned to life inside a dry forest.”
Remember when I said I was going to start working on my Regency romance #2? Well, I lied (though not on purpose). I got wrapped up in my paranormal story, #5 in the Bloodborn series. 70,000 words in and nearing the end! (Sort of). It just keeps going, but at least the end is in sight! My new WIP focuses on Luca Dragomir and a special LITTLE (and I mean little because she’s a dwarf) lady he meets on his journey to break himself away from his family and discover who he is outside of being a vampire. But when he meets Kirsa Frey, he realizes there’s so much more at stake than himself. The dwarven race is dying, and he plans to stop the death before it takes the female he loves as well. Below are the models who inspired the characters, because who doesn’t love visual inspiration?!
30,000 words and an entire book later, I finally finished Bloodscourge! I stopped halfway through to write a regency romance, and came back to it right after to finish the final 30,000 words. Now the question is…do I edit the book, or should I write the 2nd in my regency series…
Oh dear, regency it is!
