It’s blog hop time again, a warm welcome to all of the readers of Romance Writers Weekly as well as everyone else.
If you’ve come over from my eXtremely talented friend Xio Axelrod, thanks for visiting! For those of you not familiar with Xio, she’s the award-winning author of several books, including The Calum Series. Two words: Hot Scot. Seriously check out those abs. I’m totally curious about what’s going on under that kilt.
Today’s topic comes from Fiona Riplee, author of paranormal romances. Her writing shows us that aliens are among us, “and apparently are super hotties.” Fiona says “I’m curious what everyone is working on. Write about a new work in progress, new idea, or some characters that just won’t leave you alone.”
This has been a crazy busy summer for me. I haven’t had much time to blog or to work on a book. I’m just starting a new series of New Adult romances. I’ve left behind the east coast setting of my Montgomery University series and have landed smack in my home state of California. Pacific-Poly is a fictional campus, but when I think of it this is what I have in mind. Gorgeous, right?
The heroine, Zora, has just been reunited with her father. She’s trying to put her traumatic past behind her while trying to stop herself from falling in love with the star basketball player who lives next door. Like my previous novels, this one will have humor, angst, and sex. I do write descriptive sex scenes, but they’re plot driven, not gratuitous.
I’ve run into a problem though. While I’m supposed to be writing about Zora and her life in California, I keep wondering what is going on with Josie, Maddy and their friends back east. Maddy’s enjoying life with her SEAL, Josie is still in love, and Elle will be coming back from her year abroad. Sadly, I think she may be coming back with a broken heart…
While I’m working out what I’m working on, check out my previous books. They’re all part of the Montgomery University Series, but are stand-alone novels. The latest is The Comeback. I’ve recently changed the cover to one I like much better. The book has gotten great reviews, and I’m really proud of it. I hope that you’ll check it out.
Thanks for joining me today. Please go visit the next stop on our hop. Marc Stevens writes really, really hot erotic novels. I promise you won’t be disappointed with whatever he has up his sleeve…or anywhere else for that matter.
