Is spring really over? It seems like it went by so fast. I celebrated the release of my 10th book Lost Without You in Chicago with my family and friends on May 27th. To see photos go to my Facebook page If you happen to be the Orlando, my 2nd Milestone book party will be on June 30th. See my website for more details.

This month, I’ve been working on the cover of my 1st e-book Dirty Laundry. A sneak peak of the cover will be available on the Bookshelf page of my website in a few says. Some editing delays have postponed the release of Dirty Laundry to the fall. Trust me, when I say it was very upsetting to delay, but I would sooner wait and put out a quality book rather than rush and release a book and have bad editing reviews. Dirty Laundry WILL debut this fall. And thanks to some good advice there will be a sequel Can’t Get Enough.

Next up is the release of Formula for Passion the final book in the Adams Cosmetics trilogy on August 20th featuring Courtney Adams and Jasper Jackson. I hope you will find it to be a satisfying conclusion to the Adams Affair trilogy. Stay tuned for details on the next contest in August.

Slow…slow….slow is the progress I’m making on my current project: Delicious Destiny due to my editor on August 1st. The book will be part of a 3-book continuity starting with AC Arthur’s Decadent Dreams next spring, followed by Delectable Desire by Farrah Rochon and ending with my book Delicious Destiny.

Upcoming Plans: I’m sketching out the prequel to Adams Cosmetics trilogy about the parents: Elizabeth and Byron Adams and the antagonist Andrew Jackson. And thanks to many reader requests, I’m also sketching out a story for Sebastian Thompson in the promised sequel from Dare to Love that was never completed.

Last but certainly not least, big congratulations to Louise Brown of Stone Mountain, Georgia for winning a bottle of Marc Jacobs Lola perfume. Louise answered all ten (10) questions correctly for the Lost Without You contest.

Have a Happy Independence Day and stay cool!
