So yesterday I shared some super exciting news about a new contemporary romance series, The Ones Who Got Away, which I'll be doing with Sourcebooks in 2017. I'm over the moon about the new series, but this of course brings up questions of what's going to happen with my other ongoing series. Hopefully, I can answer your questions today!
Will there be more Loving on the Edge books?
Yes. This series and its characters are obviously near and dear to my heart because I've been writing in that world for so long. The next book in Loving on the Edge releases in less than a month! LOVING YOU EASY will be here Sept. 6th, and I can't wait for y'all to read it! Then in October, there will be an e-bundle of four previously released novellas. After that, I plan to continue the series on my own (indie publishing), but details on when and who the characters will be aren't set at this point. I'm currently working out my writing schedule since I'll be balancing a few different series at once.
Will there be more Pleasure Principle books?
YES! Book two in the Pleasure Principle series will be called BY THE HOUR, which will be Lane and Elle's story. This book is halfway written and my plan is to release it in Spring of 2017. I'll post more specific details when I have them!
I don't close any doors because I never know which story ideas are going to hit me, and I do love those characters. But there are no stories in these two worlds currently in the works, mainly because of time constraints and contractual obligations.
Going hybrid....I've made the decision to move my erotic series to indie publishing instead of through a traditional publisher like they have been so far. I've truly adored working with my publisher, editor, and the whole team on these series so this was not an easy decision, but I'm excited to take these books on a new path. So, how will this change your reader experience?
Content/quality wise, it won't. The books will be professionally edited and will be available in both ebook and trade paperback. This will also give me control over things like pricing and release schedules (which will only benefit you!) Another benefit is that it will allow me to release shorter works in paperback as well, which I know is important to those of you who are print readers only and miss the in between novellas when they're e-only. The main drawback will be that you won't see the future books in these two series at the bookstore, though you will still be able to order them online through Amazon, B&N, etc. The previous books will also remain in bookstores like they are now, so that won't change.
What should you know about the new series, THE ONES WHO GOT AWAY?
Besides that it's going to be awesome? ;) This series will be contemporary romance and will be published with Sourcebooks, which means the books WILL be in bookstores and will be available in both ebook and mass market paperback (the smaller sized paperbacks). So this is going to be the best of both worlds!
If you have more questions, feel free to leave them in the comments. But know that my goal is always, always to write the best damn stories I can for y'all and to get them in your hands in the easiest way possible. So thank you for continuing to buy the books and for reading my stories! I get to do this job because of you. *hugs*
