In a matter of weeks I'll be heading up to Atlanta as a featured author at The Novel Experience Event (TNEE). This will be my third time as a featured author and cannot WAIT to see everyone!
There's so much happening, so much going on... just you WAIT! If you're interested in attending, which I highly encourage you to do so! You can still get your room at the hotel Thursday - Saturday, or even Friday and Saturday, up to you! Interested? Get with me for more details. Book your room and I'll gift you a VIP ticket just for signing up! I would LOVE to have you there!!!
Did you know that the Southern Roots series is now on KU? That's right, you can now read it for FREE on KU!! What are you waiting for? Go grab the stories and meet Bobby Ray, Blaine, Clive, Matt, and Derek! Each have a unique story, and each end a HEA!
Looking for your next read? You've found it! The Southern Roots series has been moved to KU! Read for free on KU!! Dive in and come meet Bobby Ray, Blaine, Clive, Matt and Derek!
Below are all the links to all five books! HAPPY READING!!
Reminder that Southern Roots is still 99 cents! If you've not ventured into the world of Bobby Ray and Lexi, now is your chance to while it's on sale! When Paramour publishes, you can download ALL five books at once! None of them end on a cliff hanger and can be read out of order, although I recommend in order for character development.
While we're talking Southern Roots, I have toyed with the idea of extending the series. Where I've mentioned Paramour being the last book; this is most likely the truth. However, I do believe a collection of short stories will be coming soon. Clive is not done (he's a talker!) and I believe we'll be meeting his family (aka: brothers) very soon! I think Scarlet may also be back in the picture (you met her in Fueled Desire).
Writing, writing and MORE writing...
I've mentioned Marianne Morea and I have ventured into co-writing a story together. We are both pretty darn excited for this! Think... Lord of the Rings meets Harry Potter in King Arthur's court. Yeah... it's like that. Again, EXCITED!!!! We've named the beauty "Dragon Master". Let your imagination run from there...
Almost a year ago I began writing a new series about military special ops. Book one titled: Delta Force. That is still happening! I've secured what will be the cover image and once I get to a point I can focus on that story, edits will take place. Depending on writing time, you may see it come early summer time. That is, of course, unless I have the third book in the Deadly Alchemy series completed... it is outlined so it will happen!
That is all for now. Stay tuned and keep in touch! Paramour will be here before you know it!
Oh, and the release date is October 22nd... MY BIRTHDAY!!!
With the upcoming book signings in Vegas for TNEE and Tampa for BBBB, I've placed my books on a temporary sale! Take advantage of the prices while you can, they won't last long!
Chronicles of the Fallen series:
Fallen - this book is still free on all channels!
Southern Roots Series:
Each book is also on all channels of Amazon (i.e.: AU, CA, UK) as well as iBooks and Scribd.
While writing, I look to my muses and sometimes, this leads into research. See exhibit A below. If you drool, I promise not to tell. Also, if you lick your screen, that's okay too. Just make sure no one is around.
While writing Abby's story, Fueled Desire, book three in the Southern Roots series, she finds herself in Scotland and meets a very interesting man named Clive. He brings out the best side in Abby and trust me, no one has been able to do this... within reason. She's fled from Texas to start over and never anticipated finding Clive and enjoying her time with him.
So why all the pictures from Outlander? Well the sexy Jamie Fraser is exactly who I envisioned Clive to be. Fearless, sexy and damn... dirty! In a good way, of course. Sometimes when finding ones self in a writing slump, writer's block or distracted, it helps to pull up the images of what makes our mind tick, what makes us excited as writers and what helps build the story.
When I wrote Chronicles of the Fallen, Alex's muse was Kellan Lutz, Samuel's was Henry Cavill, Jonathan was Alex Pettyfer and Michael's was Michael Fassbender, sometimes Gerard Butler. So yes, it absolutely helps having a muse handy. In Clive's case... damn.
Look for Abby's story early 2015!
There's a LOT coming in the next few months and 2015 will be an EPIC year!!!
Southern Roots is about to publish! Have you one clicked it yet? It'll publish officially on Friday, August 22nd! I cannot WAIT to bring you the story of Bobby Ray, Lexi and Blaine!

Cover reveal for Julie Morgan
Synopsis:Returning home never looked so good...
Home from college to help her mother on the family farm, Lexi Griffin expects things to be quiet and normal. She's back in her hometown, and everything is the same as she left it, including the slowly mending broken heart given to her by her high school sweet heart, Blaine.
After years away, Robert Shaw has returned to his hometown for his father's wedding, looking forward to reconnect with old friends, but he has no clue what's in store for him when he sees Lexi again. Sparks fly between the two, and Lexi is a bit reluctant to start anything with Robert, especially when past wounds haven't healed the way they should have. Robert is determined to have her, against all odds and good sense. A girl like her came around once in a lifetime, and he never forgot her.
And then Blaine comes back to town, intent on rekindling what he had with Lexi, even though his past cheating and drug use has slightly soured him in her eyes. She still loves him, but can she forgive him?
As Lexi takes a leap of faith, she suddenly faces the ultimate betrayal from one she trusted. Will she realize the truth in time or will corruption ruin the best thing that has just walked out of her life?
So? What do you think? Do you like it? Personally, I LOVE it! Southern Roots is the story of Robert (aka: Bobby Ray) returning home, his getting (intimately) reacquainted with Lexi and the run in they both experience with Blaine, Abby and a world of disaster. Southern Roots is a contemporary romance set in modern times. It's fast paced, exciting and balls out fun as hell of a read! Remember what it felt like to fall in love with your One? Take that ride along with Bobby Ray and Lexi as they experience what love is like after a HUGE heartbreak.

Reflecting back on this year, it's been an amazing ride! Fallen publishes in a few days *squeals* Redemption is with my beta readers *commences in another squeal* and I'm working with a few models in creating original covers for some upcoming novels, Redemption included *happy dances*

So here's to us and and everything we'll do.
Thank you for everything, all of this is for you.
Recently I wrapped up Redemption, outside of updates here and there, and of course my amazing Beta team! You girls ROCK! I signed up to participating in a short story erotica story creation. Wish me luck! I have an idea in mind and as they say, let's RUN with it!
I have a story set to write from the perspective of Samuel in the Chronicles of the Fallen series. I've named it, for now, Saving Souls. I may update it to Saving Souls: Fire and Ice. I'm not 100% sure yet, but with anything, it can always be changed. I'm completely in love with the story line of Alex and Lisa. I also plan to write more about them and their... well I can't say right now without giving away the story line of Redemption! Haha! I promise though, more will come after Redemption and Saving Souls!
The next book I plan to start on, after the short story erotica that is, is Sci-Fi romance. It's futuristic and it's a story line I'm REALLY looking forward to writing. I've temporarily named it "Surviving Death".
Another story line I will be writing is more in line of New Adult. So far I've called it Southern Roots. This one haunts me a lot. I see images and people time to time and I'm constantly drawn into this one. Who knows, maybe it'll be next.
