Alter Egos:
Can you suggest a reading order for your books?

Proper reading order is a request I get a lot, so I figured it would be easier to link to it rather than retyping it every time I get asked. And since so many of you ask, I realized that the more books I have, the more complicated this gets. So I’m going to give you two different scenarios below, depending on where you’ve already started.

Option 1:

In the past, I’ve suggested that people read my books in the order I wrote them. This makes the most sense, because as I went along, I mention other characters in different … Read More »

Why aren’t all your books in print?

This is a slightly complicated answer. Ready?

For Samhain, any book over 50K (which is all my Men of Honor and Phoenix, Inc, books except for Ties That Bind) go to print approximately 10 months after the publication of the eBook.

For Riptide, any book that qualifies, length-wise, for print will come out in print and eBook at the same time. For right now, this list includes:
the 3rd and 4th Hell or High Water Books, Dirty Deeds 2 & 3 and the Havoc Series, along with the full length.

For the Stolen series, since I self-publish them, these … Read More »

Is DIRTY DEEDS # 1 a Hell or High Water book or part of the Dirty Deeds series?

Technically, it’s actually both, since it falls under the EE, Ltd category, along with FREE FALLING & the Hell or High Water series (and BOUND FOR KEEPS). I’ll explain: DIRTY DEEDS #1 is a novella (about 22K). It was supposed to be a Prophet / Tommy short way back when I contracted Prophet’s series, but then my editor was like, ‘what about Mal and Cillian?” So basically, the first DD is a short that runs along the timeline for Hell or High Water # 3. It takes place over 4 days. And then, DIRTY LIES and DIRTY LOVE will come … Read More »

The ending of DIRTY DEEDS # 1 almost killed me. How long will we have to wait until Cillian and Mal get some resolution?

Well, you know they’ll get their ultimate HEA at the end of DIRTY LOVE. That being said, you will see Mal and Cillian together a bit in the next two Hell or High Water books, DAYLIGHT AGAIN and IF I EVER. I’m not ‘that’ cruel.… Read More »

Will you be writing more Men of Honor books?

The Men of Honor Series is open-ended. I don’t plan on stopping that series. That being said, my next Samhain book is actually a spin-off of the MOH series. The title is NO BOUNDARIES and the series will be called Phoenix Inc. Phoenix Inc is the name of the PI Agency that Styx, Law and Paolo (from Bound By Law) opened. They will make an appearance but the main characters will be new. I realized while writing BOUND TO BREAK that I loved revisiting all those characters, and the new series will also let me do that. NO BOUNDARIES: Phoenix … Read More »

Will Sawyer and Rex from BOUND BY DANGER have their own book?

Yes…and no. Occasionally, I’ll have characters who need time to grow their relationship. Since that can’t always happen over the course of a single book, I’ll spread their story over two books. So, in reality, when all is said and done, Rex and Sawyer will end up with more pages between them than a regular MOH book between BOUND BY DANGER and BOUND TO BREAK. It’s just that their stories connect so closely to Jace’s and to Lucky’s that they’re impossible to separate.… Read More »

Is FREE FALLING connected to the Hell or Highwater series with Prophet? If so, why isn’t it labeled as such?

I self-published FREE FALLING in December of 2012. I worked with Sarah Frantz, who was freelance editing. After she ended up buying the Hell or High Water series for Riptide Publishing, we decided to bring Free Falling into the Riptide family as well.

FREE FALLING is set in the same world as the Hell or High Water (aka Prophet’s) series – all the men work at EE, Ltd. In fact, Prophet also makes an appearance in BOUND FOR KEEPS: Men of Honor book 5, because some of the characters work for EE, Ltd as well. However, FREE FALLING is a … Read More »

Are you planning another story for Mick and Blue (from FREE FALLING)?

Yes. I need some time to go by, though. I’m thinking probably post-Dirty Deeds series, but I’m not making any promises.… Read More »

Is the Hell or Highwater series about Prophet? Or is there going to be other EE chacters in the next books like the Men of Honor series?

Yes, the H*H series stars Prophet and Tommy as the heroes of all 4 books. You’ll catch glimpses of Mick and Blue again (from FREE FALLING) since they work at EE, Ltd as well but the main focus is Prophet & Tommy. So each of the H*H books might not end with an HEA, but the series will Right now, looks like the first two books will release in 2013 (Book 1 – CATCH A GHOST on September 9, 2013 and Book 2, LONG TIME GONE on October 28, 2014) and the last two in 2014.… Read More »

Some of your books are listed as having ambiguous endings. Why is that / what does it mean/ does that mean it’s not romance?

I write romance. I believe in and want HEAs.* That being said, for the series that follow the same characters throughout all the books (Hell or High Water and Dirty Deeds) the characters aren’t ready to even have an HFN* after their first books. But by the series wrap up, there will be HEAs for everyone!

*(HEA = Happily Ever After / HFN = Happily For Now)… Read More »
