All that glitters might just be gold.

Adrienne Michaels’ best friend is getting married, and Adrienne’s not feeling it on the night of the bachelorette party. Then she meets Tessa Smith, bass player for an all-female glam rock tribute band. After a one-night stand worthy of the hottest rock star fantasies, Tessa surprises Adrienne by asking her on a real date, and Adrienne soon finds Tessa’s side gig pales in comparison to the down-to-earth music geek beneath the glitter. Tessa even helps Adrienne through a family loss, but when Tessa gets a sweet job offer in another city, Adrienne has to make a choice: let her go, follow her halfway across the country—or become part of the reason for her to stay.

What’s Coming Down the Pike

A few updates on what I’ve got cookin’…

Weekend after next, I’m heading over to Birmingham for the Southern Magic Romance reader luncheon. I’ll be co-hosting a table with the fabulous Aidee Ladnier. There’s still time to sign up if you’re in the area!

On the writing front, my next novella, Heart & Soul, is all set to release on November 14. It’s a contemporary M/M about a jazz pianist and a former pro football player. Links are in the sidebar over to the right.

Next is Graphite & Glitter, my first F/F story, which I’m revising now for a release date in January. It’s a contemporary about an artist/architect and a bass player/violinist. I’m eagerly awaiting the cover!

In November, I’ll be working on Help Wanted: Boyfriend, my first M/F category romance contemporary romance. I’m not officially signing up for NaNo this year, but I’m hoping to finish the first draft by the end of the month anyway. (I’m about 8k into it already.) I’ll be going the publisher route with that one, so it’ll be a while before I have any idea of a release date.

A college sports series is next on my list, though scheduling is always subject to change. I have a backlog of story ideas that’ll keep me going for a while—and that’s not counting the new plotbunnies that always crop up!

Heart & Soul Cover and Preorders

On Friday, The Novel Approach hosted the cover reveal for my next novella, Heart & Soul. Behold the pretty:

Once again by the fantabulous AngstyG! The blurb:

Love can sneak up on you in the last place you’d expect.

Kellen Grady has known he’s gay since he was a teenager, but he’s never been that interested in dating. A professional pianist, he’s happy spending his days teaching students of all ages and his nights working and playing at an Atlanta bar and concert venue. When former pro football player Terrence Harvey and his brother buy the bar, Kellen’s thrown by the change to his routine, but he develops a quick friendship with Terrence, drawn to his sunny nature and sharp mind. Then their relationship takes a turn when Terrence surprises Kellen with a kiss. The unexpected action, though not unwelcome, leaves Kellen faced with reevaluating everything he thought he knew—about Terrence, and about himself.

Now I’m working feverishly to get the next novella done! Good thing I have a holiday today. 🙂

Moonlight & Magnolias and What’s Up Next

I had a great couple of days at the Georgia Romance Writers’ Moonlight & Magnolias conference. Vanessa North and I gave a workshop on writing LGBTQ+ characters that was well received, and I had some agent and editor appointments that went well. I heard two great talks by Jennifer McQuiston and Roxanne St. Claire over lunches and spent some time chatting with Nicki Salcedo and Janet Nye and meeting several new people. I also got quite a bit of writing done, thanks to the special writing room the conference set up for those who felt particularly inspired!

Over the next couple of weeks, I’ll be working on prepping my next novella, Heart & Soul, for publication on November 14. The cover reveal will be this Friday, October 7, at The Novel Approach, and preorder links will be available starting then. I’ll also be working on finishing the following novella, Graphite & Glitter, and getting it sent off to my editor.

After that? Well, it looks like finishing my first M/F novel (!!!) might be next on the agenda. That could become my pseudo-NaNo project. (I don’t plan to actually sign up for NaNo this year, but I’ll definitely be writing during November.)

Speaking of November, a month from now will be my next appearance, November 5 at the Southern Magic Romance Writers’ annual reader luncheon in Birmingham. Tickets are still available, so if you’re in the area, come join us!
