At least I hope it is. I’ve had it with the heat this year. And autumn is my favorite season.

What’s yours?

So, what do I have going on this autumn? A new book! This one is set in an alternate timeline in the American northwest, out on what we would call the Oregon coast. Not part of a series, Master of the Fleet is a stand-alone.

As Master of the Fleet,  Richard was one of the wealthiest men on the Cote and a powerful shaper of wind and water. And he’d finally met the woman he wanted to make his wife. While she hadn’t refused his proposal, she hadn’t yet accepted either. Their trip back to her home kingdom for the harvest festival should have been the perfect time to repeat his proposal, but somehow it all went wrong. Now he’s married to a woman who will never love him and who can’t enjoy being his lover. Doubly bound by marriage vows and a blood oath, he doubts there will be a happily-ever-after.

How had he not seen what was going on? And what was he going to do?

Anne-Marie had never intended to marry. You set them up, took them for what they had, and left in a pool of tears, claiming a family tragedy. But then she met Richard and played the game a little too long. How could she escape this prison called marriage?

Watch for Master of the Fleet, which should come out the first week in December!

In the meantime, check out my two series–Esperance and Speranza!

If you can’t take the time off right, now, how about a literary vacation? Visit a place that exists only in the mind of a half-crazed author…

I have two series going right now. One is Esperance–a highland world full of magic, mischief, and romance. Book one introduces Jareth and Viviane and follows their courtship. Book two follows Viviane’s attempts to gain control over her blossoming psychic talents. And Book 3 tells of Morgan’s and James’ romance.

The second is Speranza–a futuristic world with shape-shifters of all sorts. Book one takes place on the pleasure world, Gambler’s Folly. The second follows Damiano and Karianna to Earth, where Dante meets his soulmate, throwing the whole family and wedding plans into chaos.

So if you can’t take a vacation right now, take a little time and visit one of these worlds. You’ll always be welcome.

Jareth, First Lord–Book 1

Viviane, First Lady--Book 1

Morgan–The Pixie and the Green Man–Book 3

What are people saying about these books?

Jareth, First Lord

“It matters not the time nor place. Past, present, future. This lifetime or the next. This planet or another world entirely. We women have always possessed our very own unique voices. Even embedded deep within a book entitled ‘Jareth, First Lord’! Full of fire and determination, desires and willfulness, thoughts, feelings and opinions wrought with emotions. The very thing that society is afraid of. We have been silently submissive way too long. Viviane appears in ‘Jareth, First Lord’ so full of life. She won’t go without a fight. Her voice will be heard and with such an extraordinary gift, she demands to be obeyed… Even if she doesn’t know it.

Set in a fantastical, futuristic, historical, other worldly setting, ‘Jareth, First Lord’ is bound to take you on a trip of your imaginations’ lifetime.”

Morgan–The Pixie and the Green Man

“An enchanting love story that touches the heart and engages the mind from beginning to end. The characters are so real it feels as if they could jump of the page. Enjoyed every page of this wonderful tale.”

I know a lot of people only read on Kindle these days, and that’s cool.  And it’s why I always make my books available digitally as well as in print.

Dante’s Angel is available on Kindle today! So if you’ve been waiting, now’s the time! The sequel to Gambler’s Folly is here.

Here’s the blurb!

Dante wouldn’t have missed his boss’s wedding for the world, but he’s never been off his home planet, Gambler’s Folly. And attending the wedding only accentuates his very single status. He gets tongue-tied asking a woman out for dinner. What must it be like to meet your soul mate?

But Dante’s troubles haven’t even begun until he meets Damiano’s cousin, Angela. A bit on the wild side, and with quite the attitude, their initial meeting leaves them both irritated. But their second meeting in the olive grove leaves them breathless, as they try to figure out how to break the news to the family that they are soul mates.

The rain has finally stopped after several days. Maybe the chickens and the garden can dry out. Nothing looks more pathetic than a chicken which is sopping wet and too stupid to go back in the hen house.

But I have had a little more time to work on my WIP–The Russian. And work is coming along on the cover art for Dante’s Angel. I hate trying to come up with images for my books. No matter what the characters look like, there is seldom anything which truly represents the people I see in my head.

I’ve decided to name the series Speranza, which is the city on Gambler’s Folly where most of the stories begin. I was originally going to name the series Gambler’s Folly, but with the first book having the same name, I thought it might be confusing.

So Speranza it is!

As soon as I have a cover, I will reveal it here and on Facebook.

What? You don’t follow me on Facebook? Shame on you.

Here’s a snippet from Dante’s Angel

“Have you heard anything about Angela?”

“A little. She is a cousin of Damiano’s, on his mother’s side. She is twenty-four and has trained as a healer for our kind.”

“Her family are shifters?” Dante asked.

“Yes, cats like us. And she’s training with Damiano’s mother, so she must be very good. The Signora only works with the most promising.”

“I guess I should stop hoping then,” Dante said, sadly.

“Why?”

“Nobody with her background would be interested in me, would they?”

“You should begin to believe in yourself,” Paulo told him. “Why would anyone else believe in you if you don’t? If you’re interested, let her know. You should see her fairly often. I think she’s helping with the wedding.”

“Maybe. I’ll think about it.”

“Now that you’ve learned to stand up straight, maybe you will stop putting yourself down at every turn. You work for the agency, in a specialized division. You don’t sweep floors in a warehouse.”

Dante opened his mouth to object, but Paulo gave him a look which said he should think over what he’d just heard before he disagreed. Instead, he nodded, thanked the man for his advice, and walked back over the rest of the party. Maybe Paulo was right. Perhaps he should take another look at his circumstances before he sold himself short.

Ciao! A domani…
