I have three upcoming releases. Yes, you read that correctly. I’ve been working my butt off, so watch for the following in the near future:

  • I finished reviewing the galley for Because of You, my American Thanksgiving shorty story and the sequel to Thanks to You. Be sure to watch for a release in early November.
  • I’m waiting on my first round of edits for Better Than Gold, part of eXtasy Books‘ 12 Days of Christmas Collection. Do you want to know more about Canada’s Indian Residential Schools and how the children and teenagers coped being away from home during such a magical time of the year? Then be sure to check it out. It’s coming your way in December.
