Goodbye 2014 ~ Hello 2015!

Happy New Year to all of you!!!

May your dreams come true and your goals be achieved!

2014 started out as a rough year for me with several major family issues. Luckily, by late April, my life had calmed down and I got back into the mind frame of writing. My Goal for last year was to publish 4 books, and I just barely reached that goal. In June I released two books, Distorted Loyalty and Six Days of Memories. Both of those did hit International Best Seller Status! In early December, Second Shield was released inside the box set, Heroes to Swoon For. A set of 11 stories by some awesome authors. Mid December, My Blood Runs Blue was re-released!

So what’s coming in 2015?

First off, I’m crossing my fingers that I don’t have a repeat of last year. I’m not up for family drama this year. Nope, Not. At. All!

My goals for this year: Blue Blood for Life will be re-released in January 2015. The new cover for Blue Blood should be out in a few days!

Barbara’s Plea: Is currently in editing – slated to release March 2015 – Romantic Suspense

You’re Not Alone: Waiting to be sent to editor – Slated to release Summer 2015 – Romantic Suspense

Mixing the Blue Blood: Book 3 – In writing process – Slated to be released by Summer – Paranormal Romance

Blue Bloods Final Destiny Book 4 – Plot process – Slated to be release late 2015 – Paranormal Romance

Second Shield 2 – In writing Process – Slated to be released late 2015 – Romantic Suspense

Garda 2 – Plot Process – Release expected early 2016 – Paranormal Romance

One Every Thirty Six Trilogy – Plotting process – Paranormal Romance

So if all goes well – I should be looking at 6 releases next year! Keep your fingers crossed that I can work my magic and stay on task!

Happy New Year!

It has been an exciting time being invited into this box set group! This is the first anthology that I have been involved with, and the experience was incredible! A quick shout out to Rachelle Ayala for the invite into the group, and a thank you to all the ladies that voted me into the set and were involved!

I’ve known Rachelle for a while, we work together for the World Literary Cafe and when she asked if anyone was interested in joining the box set, I jumped right in! Now, once I was in, I felt like I was hit by a tidal wave and pulled under a few times because it took me a while to get a grasp on what was going on. I was amazed at all the work that went into the set! We were voting and voicing opinions on an almost daily basis. I loved that people could be honest with their opinions, and no one got offended. I guess it helps when you have such a great bunch of women together too!

Due to my schedule, and coming in late to the game, I didn’t have time to write a new novel, but I did submit Second Shield into the mix. If there was ever a hero to swoon for, it’s Agent Drew Bradley! Here is a little bit about Second Shield:

Detective Sergeant Mackenzie McAllister leads a team of police investigators. When the new kid, Drew Bradley, joins the squad Mack is bound by duty to show him the ropes. The chemistry between them is immediate, but with Mack being twelve years older, she fights becoming entangled with the young sexy detective.

Drew enters the unit, not only to help with the investigation they are conducting, but to find out what is really going on inside the walls of the unit. Working with the intense and strict Sergeant Mack is invigorating, but between the need to protect her and his second shield, he is at a loss and falling hard.

Together they will uncover the evil from within, and try to deny the passions that rage between them. Who in her unit is trying to keep her from finding out the truth? Who will take a life that will draw them closer? And what are the secrets hidden behind the shield?

This is an adult novel with language and sexual content.

I personally wish to thank each and everyone of the ladies that I worked with on this! You are all wonderful woman and I am so glad to have met you and gotten to know you!

Heroes to Swoon For

Author Rachelle Ayala

 

SE: Welcome Rachelle!? So glad to have you here and part of the set!? Have you ever been part of a box set before?

RA: Yes, Romancing Christmas?

 

SE: So many cool holiday sets out, how did you get involved in this set?

RA: We batted the idea around in the Romance In A Month group in the summer. I decided to start the set with the writers in that group initially. Later we invited other authors to join.

SE: Well, personally, I’m glad you did! What did you think of the process – or what was your favorite part of the process?

RA: I wanted to write something completely new for the set and not reuse something already published. It was quite a drama to have a deadline and I worked really hard to make it happen. My favorite part is the group we’re in. We support each other and have a lot of fun chats and side conversations. Everyone was well organized and helped out in the way they could to move the team along.

SE: I agree. Tell us about your book that is in our box set:

Roaring Hot is a story combining motorcycle racing, reality shows, and Zen Buddhism. On the surface, Teo Alexiou is an arrogant playboy who gets what he wants. He meets his match in actress Amy Suzuki, a woman he hired to play his girlfriend. The fun starts when he falls for her, and suddenly, the billionaire bad boy is wishing she’d cut the act and show him her true heart.
