Red Team Schedule Update!

I've had several questions from you guys about when to expect the next books from me, so I thought it was time to post an update to my plan. 
 
This schedule, as you know, is likely to change. It's ambitious...and you guys know how good I am at meeting my deadlines (not). Still, without a plan, it's hard to meet any objectives.
 
So here goes....
 
2014
Max's story - TWISTED MERCY by late July 2014
Blade and Eden’s wedding novella by August 2014
Greer’s story - ASSASSIN’S PROMISE by December 2014
 
2015
Max & Hope’s wedding novella January 2015
Kelan’s story - BROKEN VOWS by May 2015
Rooco & Mandy’s wedding novella late Spring 2015
Val’s story - RAZED GLORY by August/September 2015
Kelan and Fiona’s wedding novella by September 2015
Angel’s story - (not titled yet) December(ish) 2015
 
2016
An installment in my historical western series, Men of Defiance, possibly Spring 2016. This will most likely be Dulcie’s story—DULCIE AND THE BANDIT. 
Greer’s wedding novella Spring 2016
Owen’s story - DEADLY CREED Summer 2016
Angel’s wedding novella Summer 2016
1st installment of a spin-off of The Red Team Series (the details of this won’t be announced until after Owen’s story)
 
2017 +
Val’s wedding novella Winter/Spring 2017
Owen’s wedding novella Spring 2017
More in the new spinoff series
 
That’s the plan as of now. I know it will change as I move through each of the stories. It’s a tough writing schedule…and I have a hard time meeting my deadlines, but it’s what I’m shooting for!
I truly appreciate your patience with me. All the guys will get their own story. And now that I'm writing fulltime, I'll be able to bring the stories to you much more rapidly!

Romance Writers of America's RITA Award Finalists Announced!

I'm so excited to see so many self-published authors made this year's finalists! One of them is from my local RWA chaptermate, Courtney Milan, with her Regency Historical, The Countess Conspiracy.


Reposted from RWA's Website:

Romance Writers of America (RWA), the trade association for aspiring and published romance fiction authors, announces the finalists for the 2014 RITA® and Golden Heart® Awards. The RITA — the highest award of distinction in romance fiction — recognizes excellence in published romance novels and novellas. The Golden Heart recognizes excellence in unpublished romance manuscripts.

(All entries with a minimum total score of at least 90 percent of the total possible score advance to the final round.)

The 2014 winners will be announced at a black-tie awards ceremony on July 26 at the 2014 RWA Annual Conference in San Antonio, Texas.

Congratulations to the 2014 finalists!
