Up and Coming!

Welcome to Keira’s Classic Corner, where we’ll explore the fantastic world of classic cars and trucks America’s highways and byways were built for. If you’ve read my Keira Blackwater novels, you know Keira is a classic car mechanic who loves and adores old vehicles as well as antiques, which mirror my own, as well as my husband’s, passion. I get to live vicariously through her, so when you read about her fixing and restoring a fairly rare or unusual old car or truck, a lot of the times it’s because I fantasize about being able to find those vehicles myself, though in most cases, finances prevent me from doing so. Or, if I discover a new car I think is fascinating, you may see Keira working on it in her next adventure. I plan to pick a new classic vehicle and post pictures, as well as info, and any other tidbits I can find on the first Thursday of each month. I’ll also let you know if that vehicle holds any significance for Keira, or for my husband or myself. I may try to find a way to include the occasional giveaway during this series. Look for my first post tomorrow!

Paranormal legends and folklore will be a new mini-series as well, but I haven’t picked what day yet, so stay tuned to find out. Some exciting things coming your way in 2018, so don’t miss out. Subscribe to my blog at the bottom of my home page to stay up to date.

Blood for Blood News!

For anyone who hasn’t seen my website home page, the cover for Blood for Blood is up with the blurb so you can see what book 2 is about. I absolutely love the cover! Go check it out if you haven’t already. The release date is set for Jan. 2, and as soon as I go over everything to check for missed errors, the ebook will be available for pre-order on Amazon. I’ll post to let everyone know when the pre-order is up and running. I will also be doing a book release signing on Jan. 6 in Claremore at Boarding House Books if anyone would like to come meet me and pick up a signed copy. I can’t wait to hear what everyone thinks as Keira’s story continues….

Quick Update.

Hey guys, just a quick update. The edits and formatting for Blood for Blood are finally done. I can’t thank my editor Kristen Hamilton, of Kristen Corrects, enough for her help. I have launched my design contest for the book cover on 99designs, and will post it as soon as I have picked a winner. I don’t know about you, but I am so excited!! I’ll keep you posted on when I think the release date will be. Have a great day!

News

The release of Blood for Blood is fast approaching, and I can’t tell you how excited I am. Sam gets a special chapter in the book, one I think you guys will like (fingers crossed). I’m shooting for a mid-December release if all goes well, with a release party to be held at Boarding House Books on Main Street in Claremore. As soon as it’s set in stone, I will announce the date and time here and on my Facebook page.

I am doing a book signing for Blood Cure at Boarding House Books in Claremore this Friday and Saturday, the 17th & 18th, during Dickens on the Boulevard from 6-9pm. If you haven’t picked up a signed copy yet, or if you have a copy you would like me to sign, I would love to meet you.

My first Death Maiden novel is coming along well. It has a slightly darker flavor than the Keira series, and I am super excited for everyone to meet the new characters and hear your thoughts.

Have a great evening, and I hope to see you at my upcoming book signings!

It’s finished!

The rough draft for Blood for Blood, Keira Blackwater #2, is finished! I am officially doing my happy dance. I started edits yesterday, plan to finish them up in the next week, then let my husband read it looking for errors I missed. Then on October 4th, my wonderful editor Kristen Hamilton takes over, and will do her magic. If everything goes smoothly, I hope to release it either in December (just in time for Christmas!), or early January. I can’t wait for everyone to read it and give me their thoughts.

In celebration of my new book getting ready to release, I will also be updating my website, Twitter, and Facebook banners. I am really excited about the new designs I have received from the designers at 99designs. I should have them up within the next few days, so check back and take a look at them, then drop me a line to let me know what you think.

Well, that’s it for now, I’m off to edit some more 🙂

What’s happening…

writingI know I haven’t been on here much, but as I stated in an earlier post, I am working hard on Blood for Blood, the next installment in the Keira Blackwater series. I just started the scene that leads to the climax so it won’t be long now. 🙂

Something new and exciting is that I am now available on Barnes and Noble’s Nook, Apple iBooks, Inktera, and Kobo. So if you have one of these, you can go to my home page and scroll to where it lists online retailers and click the name of the one you want and it will take you directly to that page for purchase.

I’ve had to move a lot of the things I’ve wanted to do such as book bags, and some other fun stuff to the back burner in order to make my deadline with my editor, but once Blood for Blood is in her very capable hands I hope to be able to hash out some of these things and make them available. As always, I will post new things here and on my Facebook page for everyone to keep you updated.

Thanks for hanging with me, it’s sure to be a wild ride!

What I’m doing

vintage truckAs those of you who have read Blood Cure already know, Keira makes her living by taking care of classic cars and trucks at her shop, KNB Classics. Something I’ve been considering doing for some time now is to bring this to life once a month on my blog where I feature a classic car or truck to talk about and encourage comments and feedback from you guys. My husband and I love classic vehicles, which is where the idea to make Keira a classic car mechanic came from. Feel free to leave a comment to let me know if this is something you think you’d like to see.

I am also thinking of creating a newsletter, where people who sign up get to read a short story about the night Keira was born, and how she got Rya as her tattoo. It would also be used for exclusive short stories in the future. Another thing in the works, are Blood Cure book bags. I haven’t found the right company to create them yet, but I am working on it, and may have some to offer in the future.

And as always, I’m working on the next Keira book, Blood for Blood. With the overwhelming request of my fans, I have shifted gears so that Blood for Blood has moved to the top of my finish pile instead of my first Death Maiden novel, which I am still working on, but it will take a backseat to Blood for Blood for now.

Lots of exciting things going on around here. Don’t forget I have a book signing at the end of this month on the 29th at Boarding House Books in Claremore from 6-9pm if you’d like to attend.
