What’s on the drawing board?

I thought I would give you an update on the next few books that I will be publishing, and what I am working on right now. Here’s what’s coming up!

Vegan Baked Alaska

If you’ve been paying attention, you probably know that my next release is Vegan Baked Alaska, the next installment in the Auntie Clem’s Bakery series.

Don’t you just love the cute puffin on the cover?

I needed to get Erin out of Bald Eagle Falls for a while. The poor woman has just been dealing with too much lately and was overdue for a nice relaxing vacation.

Okay, so she doesn’t get a relaxing vacation…

Gem, Himself, Alone

After Vegan Baked Alaska, look for Gem, Himself, Alone.

I am not publishing a lot of YA right now, but this one has been waiting for a while. Before I started publishing, I wasn’t very disciplined about my writing, and this is one book that sat unfinished for a long time. Only two out of the three parts were completed, and I left it, knowing that it needed something more, but not sure what it was. Two years ago, I pulled it back out and wrote part three. It still needed some rewriting, but was finally on its way.

Like my other YA books, this is a gritty novel that deals with some serious topics, including mental illness, gang violence, and the child sex trade. It is poignant and suspenseful, with some unexpected twists and turns!

June, Into the Light

June, Into the Light is book #6 in the Between the Cracks series. Twice I have thought I was done with this series, but it just keeps coming back!

After releasing Ronnie, readers were still asking for more. I explained that each child’s story had been told, and I wasn’t really planning for any more books to be added to the series. (Although, there are a couple of second-generation Simpsons who might still have stories to tell…)

But readers said they wanted to hear more about June. While June had a title role in June & Justin, that book was more from Justin’s perspective than June’s. My readers felt it made her out to be the ‘bad guy’ and accused me of abandoning her, not giving her a chance for a ‘happily ever after.’

So after some discussion, I sat down and worked through some thoughts on June’s journey. 150,000 words later, I had drafted June, Into the Light. Read about June’s recovery, challenges, and reconciliation with her family.

Coming in August!
