What’s New ~ January 2020

Happy New Year, everyone! I have to admit, I’m super excited for this year. Major life milestones are set to happen, including my impending nuptials and potentially starting a family with my brand new husband. So while I hope to continue working, I have to be honest and say I may be otherwise distracted, so my productivity levels may drop.

That being said, the first half of the year is full-up on new and re-releases, including the Lexie Carrigan Box Set (currently on sale for $0.99 until release day), The Queen of Veils (the last book in the Princess Vigilante series), and a re-release of Empath, containing some new essays on life five years later. I’m honestly really excited about the Empath one, especially as aforementioned nups are gonna be about 2 weeks before. I’m hoping to have a bunch of stuff pre-planned, as I’ll be exploring New Zealand with my shiny new husband.

After that…well, it’s kind of up in the air. Writing Brynna took a lot out of me, and this last book took everything I had and then some. I’ve neglected many other things, including keeping up with my marketing research, and my sales have suffered across the board. So any project I get into will be a tepid dip into the water, and not one that I’m going to kill myself to try to finish before April.

Still, rattling around in my mind is the spin-off trilogy to Demon Spring, the half-finished Ragen Teon book, and some other ideas. Now that I know I’m supposed to be doing things a certain way, part of me wants to stay in the YA realm so I can capitalize on Brynna’s success. Including, perhaps, writing an Elisha-focused spin-off. But the rational part of my brain tells me to put Brynna down for a while. While I love her, writing her takes a lot of brainpower.

Either way, I’m marching forward into 2020 with the intention of keeping myself from going balls to the wall on anything. Life is much sweeter when I get to enjoy everything on my plate, instead of gorging myself on the mashed potatoes up front.

I hope everyone had a solid holiday season and is ready for the new year with a smile and lots of optimism!

Events and Signings

After a crazy couple of years, I’ve finally decided to hang up my banners and kick my feet up. I’m currently not invited nor scheduled to attend any comicons – not even Pensacon! It’s been a nice couple of months to recoup and reset my life a little (as well as get engaged and plan a wedding). I’m eyeing perhaps one or two local events at the Bodacious Bookstore in the next couple of months, but nothing solid yet.

As always, the SGR-Pub shop is always open for signed books, if you need to add to your collection.

Cover Refresh – Empath

Since I’m probably going to be on my honeymoon during the 5 year anniversary of Empath, I thought I’d go ahead and refresh the cover now! If you haven’t gotten caught up on this book yet, this is truly the book of my heart. When I wrote it, I was in a spot I never thought I’d get out of, nor did I ever truly believe that I’d end up where I am now. But it just goes to show that when you open your chest and rip out your heart, sometimes you find exactly the person you’ve always been.

Available wherever books are sold.
