Hiking & Writing Updates

Is it just me, or does life get more hectic and chaotic in the summer? I'm really starting to believe that Murphy's Law is scarily correct. Or maybe my luck is just that bad? It is quite possible. I live in a city where luck is a thing not easily attained, or rapidly lost. "The City of Sin", or "The City of Lost Wages". But, I digress, none of that has anything to do with today's post.

I've been stressed out, so I wanted to share a photo from a recent hike that helped me relax a little and hopefully gets me back into writing euphoria.

Pretty, ain't it? I always feel most at ease, and stress free when I'm hiking. No noise of the city, or in my head; just one foot in front of the other and no obstacles except the path before me.

Lately I've been pushing forward on my newest novel, The Long Road Home. I'm about 3/4 of the way done and I'd like to think it's going to be a great book. This will be my first leap into Contemporary Romance. Some of my favorite indie's have done amazingly well in this genre (Tiffany King), but I'm still hesitant stepping away from my typical horrors or paranormal romances. There's only ONE way to find out if Contemporary Romance is for me, and I'm going to have to gather my courage and release the book when it's ready. Hopefully my readers will enjoy it and that's all that really matters to me.

I'm still working on Revenge(Warm Delicacy Series, Book 4), AND Vengeance (Agents of Evil Series, Book 3). They are both coming along well and I hope to have them both published before the end of the year. I've been trying to continually update my word counts on here so my readers can see the progress, but I've been slacking lately so I will try and get back on that. I'm one of those readers who likes to see where my favorite author currently is in writing their newest book, so I'm going to try to be better at posting updates etc.

Anywhos, I think I've vented enough for today. :o) Thanks for listening. ♥

Happy Father's Day to all the deserving fathers out there...
fathers who put their children first & would do anything for them, 
people taking on the role of father when they don't have to, 
single moms rocking both roles, new daddies, daddies-to-be, 
and daddies in waiting.
