Happy New Year everyone!
As it was for many people, 2016 was a difficult year for me in many ways. But the bright spot for me was my writing career, as 2016 turned out to be pretty darn good. I hit the USA Today bestseller list 3 times! Yay! My Aces Hockey series has continued to grow, and I'm thrilled with the positive reviews and with the sales. I also feel so blessed to have made so many great friends through my writing, both authors and readers.
What's coming in 2017?
Well, I have 5 releases coming starting this month with Back Check, another Aces Hockey series. Early reviews are great, so I'm pumped for this release!
Then in April I have something completely new for you...the hero is a hockey player, yes, but Drew's been forced into retirement and he's not dealing well with it. Dancing in the Rain is a powerful story about love and loss and strength...I love how Drew finds his own strength from the women in this story.
In May, we have Hot Shot - Last Shot book 2. We pick up right where Body Shot left off, and get to enjoy the sparks between Carrie and Marco.
Then in July, Cross Check is out. This is Bayard Hockey book 2. I apologize that it's been so long between Shut Out...that's the way publishing works! We have another enemies to lovers story as Ben and Ella discover they have more in common than they realize, and I love that we have another heroine who tries to do something positive with the tragedy that she's experienced.
October brings Slap Shot (CONFESSION! I'm just writing this book now. This is Max Hall's story...you may remember him from the first Aces books where he loses his young wife to cancer. I'm sure you can imagine his struggles. Many readers have asked whether he'll get his HEA...so you'll need to read this one!
I also have a few books I'll be re-releasing in February -- Rigger, Conference Call and Irish Sex Fairy -- so watch for those if you haven't already read them!
I don't believe in making resolutions and I know 2017 is going to hold some tough challenges for me, but I love to write-- it keeps me going when things are difficult. And I love to share my stories with all of you!
