Yup, it's the end of October, but if you could see how this month came in, put on a bib, and pulled up to the table.
Phew, this month ate. However, I picked up my fork and got it in too. I'm booked for 2024. I'm happy with the schedule I set. It's not as rigorous as I could have made it, but it's given.
I still have 3 more books going to Amazon this year. I'm thinking of finishing a few exclusives I'm put down as well.
Here's what I'm sure you will see in 2023 on Amazon.
WAIT. Before you close this page and curse me out. Ballers 3 isn't there because I don't know if it will make it back to me from the proofreader before the year is over. I have it on my January 2024 release list. However, there is still hope.
Let's recap on the books that did make it this year already.
Do you hear me squealing? They're coming. The kings are finally coming.
Get your preorder in now. You're not going to want to miss this one.
The Immortal Iron Brothers are demi-gods forced to hide among humans as a Motorcycle club because of a curse. There are many beings hiding in the ranks of the club—werewolves, warlocks, vampires, and the Kings—demi-gods.
Ties to a crime family and the curse that bind the brothers to them are about to reveal secrets and end centuries of pain and loss. The brothers' servitude is about to come to an end. They can finally break the curse. Or can they?
Just when the brothers think all is lost and their father has long forgotten them. They find he has been watching and waiting to aid them in taking all their power back. There is no match for the Immortal Iron Brothers motorcycle club or their biggest secrets.
Immortal Iron Brothers Book 1: King of Knights
My brothers and I are unique. We were born with a Power so enormous it has to be harnessed and locked away. Our demi blood both defines and drives us.
I’ve lived century after century, running from a curse that blood has inflicted upon us. That was until a family of humans finds out our secret and bound us to them.
Now as freedom is upon us because of the one detail they failed to learn—or so we thought—all hell is breaking loose. The past has appeared in a form I don’t know, but she feels like someone I used to know well.
All my life I’ve felt different. My father has always been cautious of who I meet and where I go. The one night I decide to defy him, I end up running for my life. Then he appears. He saves me, then drops me to my death or so I thought.
Now I’m sharing my mind and body with another woman. Or is it hers. She knows this man and wants him back.
What does this mean? How is this possible? In the end who will be standing? Do I love him or is this her? Is he in love with me or her?
I've been sort of moving in silence on social media as far as updates go. So here's what's going on.
1. Book #10 King of Knights is locked and loaded to release October 31st, 2023.
Books #11 and #12 go out to the proofreader in November.
2. For my sanity and to give the best experience, we’re doing the next online signing in 2025. I’ll announce details on how it has changed soon. I want to give visuals and do a live to tell y’all about it. I'm still waiting on some of the custom work to announce this.
3. My 2024 schedule is locked in. I have booked my spots with the proofreader. I will anounce releases closer to the new year.
4. I booked the Alliance cover and it came out fire. I decided to make it a standalone outside of all the series. I have to move some things around but Misha will get his own series. This is the series where Czar, Ramses, and Remi will go.
I now know where these books need to go and have placed them on my schedule for when I believe the time will be right.
5. I'm on track to complete the new edits of my backlist that i planned to get done in this year. This will also help to get me back into the Legally Bound Universe.
Would you like to know about my next release? Well, I'm working on three books. Trevor's first and second book, and book a little something for my mental health. Let's talk about Trevor though.
It’s like I can’t breathe. I made a vow to stay away from the place where my heart lives. Placing one foot in Texas has the power to shred me open. I would bleed out. Without question, I know I would. However, I have to go. This time I have to go home.
“Are you all right?” my manger asks.
I look up from my phone into the face of Jackson. I have to squint through my tears to see him. I dart my tongue out to wet my lips. Suddenly, the air conditioning in my dressing room sends a chill through me.
Jackson stares back with concern in his eyes. This man has become such a good friend. My best friend and manager. Not everyone in the business gets that lucky. He’s been there when I needed him to be throughout the years. He has had my back through everything while I’ve made my mark on the world.
“No… no… I.” Tears begin to roll down my cheeks as it hits me. With the shake of my head, the truth slips free. “No, I don’t think I am.”
“Talk to me. What’s going on?”
“I have to go home. It… it’s my father. Daddy needs me,” I choke out.
“Is Moses okay? Wasn’t that just last month he came to New York,” he says.
“Mama says he had a stroke. She says it wasn’t as bad as it could have been, but I know she’s lying. I have to go,” I reply.
“No problem. I’ll get to work on cancelling tour dates. Do you know how long you’ll want to take?”
I shake my head and purse my lips to trap the sobs in my throat. I don’t know what’s gutting me more. The reason I have to go home or the past that awaits me when I arrive.
Jackson perches on the side of the vanity in my dressing room. Searching my face with his hazel gaze. I note the moment he sees through me.
“You know, I’ve never questioned why you refuse to go home to visit your parents. You always have them flown out to New York for the holidays, no matter if you’re working or not. I find it interesting that a Texas born girl refuses to book a show in the state. Hell, Texas is one big state.”
He gives me a pointed stare. Waiting for me to come clean the way he always does when he knows I’m holding something back. When I don’t respond, he continues.
“I love you, baby girl. Like my very own little sister, but it’s time for you to tell me what’s going on in Texas that has undone you completely.”
I close my eyes while the tears flow. “My biggest mistake is in Texas. The reason my songs come from my heart… the reason I can’t commit to a decent relationship. That man lives in Texas. The one that broke my heart, right after I broke his…that who’s in Texas,” I breathe through trembling lips.
“I’m thinking this trip is long overdue. Go home, show him you made it big and he’s the one that made the biggest mistake?” Jackson replies.
I snort, shove a hand into the front of my hair. “Nope, he has a family now, a wife and kids. I don’t matter.”
Jackson’s brows shoot up. “Why in the hell would you be hung up on someone you don’t matter to?”
“It… it wasn’t always that way. I mean, at least… I… don’t know what happened.” I pause to blink in confuse as I get my thoughts together. “I don’t know what changed. I guess I made the wrong choice and then… and then… I… it was too late.”
“Too late? Lynn, baby girl, any man willing to turn you down is out of his damn mind,” he says and folds his arms over his broad chest.
A weak smile is all I can offer him. He and his Melody had a forever love. The kind I once thought I had. After losing his her, he has made it his mission to see to it that everyone else finds love. I just don’t think that will ever be in the cards for me.
“We’re just… it’s complicated. Always has been.”
“Wait, this sounds a lot deeper than what you’re letting on.” He takes another pause while tapping his phone against his chin, staring off into space. A moment later, his fingers are flying across the device in his hands. “Okay, I just had Felica clear your schedule. Now, you and I are going to have a long talk. I want details.”
I don’t have the words to speak just yet a the pain still rolls through me. I’m crumbling from the inside out. I haven’t spoken of this topic in years. I only allow myself to go there for the music.
Breathe, Lynn. Just breathe.
I don’t fucking want to be here. I want a damn divorce. I want to move on with my children and my life. However, Donna is hell bent on dragging this bullshit out. I swear on everything that’s holy, if I were a lesser man, I’d wrap my hands around her neck.
Val, the wife of my brother’s business partner, has offered a few times to make Donna disappear. I shudder every time. Something in her eyes tells me she means it.
I haven’t missed the same look in her husband, Uri’s eyes. It’s something that’s kept me from joking about taking her up on her offer. My soon to be ex-wife is a bitch, but Donna’s still the mother of my children.
As little as I see her care about our kids, I know they still love their trifling Mama. It’s one of the reasons all this bullshit is dragging on my nerves. My babies deserve a hell of a lot better.
Honest to God, my babies are the only reason I’m here. Damn court order or not, I have no intentions of reconciling this marriage. I’m here to prove that shit is absolutely impossible. The sooner I get that done, the better.
“Good afternoon, gentlemen. You’re all here for different reasons, but the fundamental reason is the same. Each of you would like to have your life to feel like your own again.” Dr. Winsor’s brown eyes fall on me.
“The best way to get to that point is to find where it all went wrong. That being said, gentleman, who’s going to break the ice. Give us your name, then tell us how you think you arrived here.”
I don’t hesitate to I jump on in. My kids need some stability and they deserve a better life. If I’m honest with myself, so do I. Enough is enough.
“My name is Trevor Monroe,” I say loud and clear.
“Welcome, Trevor,” Dr. Winsor says with a warm smile. “Thank you for being the first to step up. Everyone, let’s welcome Trevor.”
Solemn murmurs come from the men around me. My gaze travel around them all. A few have lovesick written across their faces, others reveal sorrow. For them there’s someone on the other end of this they want to get right for. That’s not the case for me.
“I’m here because I married a bitch. I want a damn divorce. My money is paying for some flashy, scumbag city lawyer that’s pulling all types of bullshit to prevent this divorce, but it’s happening sooner or later, it’s happening,” I growl as my chest heaves, my Texan accent heavy.
“Um, wow. Take a deep breath, Trevor,” Dr. Winsor says softly. “I understand you have hard feelings about your situation. I’m sure they’re valid. However, there has to be a starting point. Tell us about you. Where did it all start? How did you come to marry your wife? Where did that decision birth from?”
I clench my fists in anger and nod my head. “Yes, ma’am.”
As she suggests I inhale a deep breath. I have to do it once more to calm myself a bit. I think, seriously think. My heart breaks as I open the gate to memories, I sealed shut a long, long time ago. My vision blurs, my eyes start to burn, and I close them.
Names I haven’t said in years whisper in my mind. The course of my life was changed those two names. The two who crushed me. That’s exactly where this all started. I’m not a fool, so I won’t deny that.
If it weren’t for what happened to Brooke, there never would have been a Donna. My best friend, Brooke, saw right through me. She set me straight and sent me after what I wanted.
Memories of Brooke and the name I still to this day can’t bear to breathe assault me. That gate swings wide open and delivers a punch to the gut. Like hot molasses, my lips loosen and it all spills forward.
“I was twenty and had so many dreams. We all did. They were my friends. The girls everyone had to be around. They each had their own magnetism about them. They pulled you in until you needed to be near them.” My country drawl is heavy with emotion.
As the words flow I’m taken back to the time when my life went totally wrong. A time I’ll never get to change or go back to. It was the one time I risked dreaming for more.
Yup, I know exactly when this train wreck started.
