Why I wrote a heavy metal romance series.


My heavy metal romance, KISSING VICIOUS came out last Friday. W000000T!

And I totally forgot to blog about it here. Booooooo.

But, better late than never.

Many of you know that I got my start writing historical paranormal romance. However, as much as I love writing about the scandals and ball gowns and dangerous dukes, and of course, sexy vampires, I also love heavy metal music. 


Something about shredding guitar riffs, fast drums, and powerful vocals makes my passion rise.
Aside from taking joy in the music, I’m also fascinated with the musicians themselves. The hard work they endure to fulfill their dreams, the crazy situations they encounter on the road. I’ve read all about Ozzy Osbourne’s notorious exploits, Ronnie James Dio’s extensive accomplishments, and Dave Mustaine’s struggles with drug addiction as he sought to outdo the band he was fired from… and succeeded by creating my favorite band, Megadeth.

 As I learned more about my favorite rock stars, I realized that there is more to the metal world than sex, drugs, and rock n’ roll. They are passionate artists and although some are real jerks, others astounded me with their kindness to fans and charitable acts.

 I also realized that the music industry would be a very difficult world in which to find love, with the constant travels from gig to gig, and the overzealous groupies. But of course, my romantic imagination spun a tale.
And that’s how Kissing Vicious was born. The world of Heavy Metal is mostly male dominated.  What if a woman worked as a roadie? How would the band and crew see her? What problems would arise if she got involved with one of the band members?

My heroine, Kinley Black, is about to find out. 

Here's the blurb for KISSING VICIOUS!


Aspiring guitarist Kinley Black is about to get her first big break—as a roadie for Viciöus, her favorite heavy metal band, and for the rock god she always dreamed might make her a woman. 
THE ROADIE 
At 15, aspiring guitarist Kinley Black wished she were a boy. At 16, after hearing Quinn Mayne sing, she wanted him to make her a woman. Now, at 22, her dreams have come true. Quinn’s band Viciöus needs someone to lug their amps around the country, to strive and sweat with the guys. She just has to act like one of them. 
AND THE ROCK GOD 
Quinn had to admit the new chick could pull her weight, but that didn’t mean his road manager made the right choice. Taking a hottie on a heavy metal music tour was like dangling meat in front of a pack of feral hounds—and Quinn could be part dog himself. But more surprising than her beautiful body are Kinley’s sweet licks, so that no man could help but demand a jam session. Quinn will soon do anything to possess her, and to put Kinley in the spotlight where she belongs. And to keep her safe and sound from the wolves.

Big News For BRIDES OF PROPHECY fans!

Hello, everyone!

Sorry I've been away for so long. Aside from some freelance editing, work on my second metal romance, I've also been plugging away at the much awaited third book in my BRIDES OF PROPHECY series.

I even came up with a title.

I also finally got the cover how I want it.

BEHOLD!!!



But most importantly, I've accomplished sufficient progress to be able to place it on pre-order.

So here is the blurb and here are the pre-order link: Alas, Nook is a butt and won't let me set up a pre-order, but here's the Kindle link for now: So Pre-order it now! 

and I'll also be getting it up there for Kobo and Apple in a day or two.

I am very excited about this book. This is where the series takes a stranger turn. It has been the most complex and challenging thing I've ever written.

There is also awesome news around the corner for my upcoming heavy metal romance series, so stay tuned!

Good News, Bad News

I hope everyone had a good 4th!


​I've been crazy busy this month. First, the good news:

I've completed the rough draft of my second heavy metal romance. I still need to come up with a title. It should be released late fall or early winter and I'm very excited.

In other good news, I'm back to work on Book 3 in my Brides of Prophecy series. This is the biggest, most ambitious novel I've ever written, along with the most challenging. I hope to release that one in October.

Now for the sad news. I was supposed to be a featured author at the READING UNTIL DAWN conference, but due to financial reasons, I had to bow out. It was the travel costs that got me.

The registration itself is very affordable and they even have a roommate match-making service to cut hotel costs, so I highly recommend checking out this event!



There will be a ton of amazing authors as well as a pillow fort/ pajama party with BOOKS!

More info on the con can be found Here.

Needless to say, it's breaking my heart that I can't go and I hope to attend next year.

Anyway, I'll keep you all posted on my writing progress/ upcoming events.

Cover Reveal and Release Date for KISSING VICIOUS!!

Hello everyone!

Remember back in May when I posted about my 3 Book Deal with Borough's Publishing for my heavy metal romance series? Well, book ONE already has a cover, a new title, and a RELEASE DATE!

I joyfully present to you all, KISSING VICIOUS!


Here's the blurb:

Kinley Black's dream comes true when an interview with her favorite band turns into an opportunity to become a roadie. She is determined to out-man the rest of the road crew who scorn her presence. But it's hard to be manly when the sight of the lead singer strikes chords of desire within her.

Quinn Mayne, lead singer of Vishӧus, is furious when the road manager hires a woman to haul their gear. Taking such a beauty on the road is like dangling meat over a pack of feral hounds. However, threat of a discrimination lawsuit leaves him no choice. Despite his reluctance, he can't help being impressed by his new roadie's determination any more than he can suppress his urge to protect her... or his craving for her lush lips.

Combating the advances and animosity of her coworkers, Kinley's talent and skill earns the band's regard... and more heated glances from Quinn. When she is promoted to guitar tech, one roadie's resentment grows until he goes to deadly lengths to stop her. As her foray into the male dominated world of heavy metal deepens, Kinley learns that she has to do more than protect her heart, she has to protect her life. 


And it's coming out on AUGUST 21st!!! 

I'll post pre-order links as soon as they're up!
