Year In Review, Looking ahead.
2015 - what a year. Now, I’m not one that usually looks over my previous year and evaluates and reassesses my choices. January 1st is just another day to me, normally. Since I believe every day is an opportunity start over, begin anew, and change who you are, I don’t think you need to wait until the new year. But this year, I pondered.
Some of you may not know, but I started out writing erotica. Short stories that were fun to write but didn’t get very many readers. I wanted to expand my stories, tell more of the tale. Luckily readers liked my stories of love. I have gone from a casual part-time writer, to writing full time. Not a job that I ever thought I would be able to do. I’m so grateful to be able to do this for a living.
2016 - I’m looking forward to providing my readers with hopefully more books and characters they will love. I can’t thank everyone enough for all of your support this past year. The Rochon and Hayes families have been like my own family this year. I plan on spending more time with them in 2016.
That being said, 2016 is going to have some changes. Please bear with me as I grow and hopefully produce more books for you.
My business partner, Misty Stark, who has been with me this past year, is going to be moving more to the forefront. She’s always been supporting me and shaking me loose during long bouts of writer’s block, many funny bits come from her. You’ll be seeing much more of her in the coming year. Tiffany is stepping back as her family obligations are going to be taking more time. I created a generic email email@example.com, Misty will be answering those emails including ARC emails when I’m not available. Hopefully it won’t be too confusing.
Going forward for the year, I have plans for six more PNW Bear books. They will be spread out through the year. I also have plans for a new series that will take place in an alternate world. Still lots of love stories, strong alpha males, just with a unique twist I hope you will enjoy.
In between, there is a project that has been swirling in my brain for a while. The more I think about what I want to write, the more I thought it might not fit in the world I’ve built for my shifters. It’s a little darker, a little more…explicit.
For that reason I’ll be releasing these new books under another pen name. Imagine Moxie North with little devil horns, a twisted sense of humor, and a taste for rougher sexier alpha males. As soon as I am ready to release those new stories I will post through my Facebook and give links to a new name. I will also be re-releasing my BBW on Fire series under that new pen name. I feel that the upcoming stories will fit better with those shorter erotic romances.
Yes still me, just keeping my worlds separated by a fairly thin veil. If you aren’t interested in what the new author (yes me) writes, then my shifter world will always be there. Big burly bears and their feisty mates.
I hope 2016 will be even better than 2015. More books, more contests, and many more hours of fun with all of you.
I wish for all my readers to have a happy and prosperous new year. Love, laughter, and Happily Ever Afters.

Although I enjoy BDSM books, Cherise Sinclair being one of my favorites, I don't know that it would fit with my cuddly bears. But, I'm am republishing some previous erotica that I had done a while ago. I'm giving them a refresher and putting them back out. They will be under the name Rebel West. I do also have some unpublished stories that I'm thinking of putting out. Very much on the naughtier side.

Whew! So glad you won't bring any of that into your cuddly bears series! Any more bears in any other series or other paranormals?
