This week in censorship news...

The world has gone mad and "censorship" is the word that is flitting around the romance community.

Just this week...

  • Amazon's new policy has stripped any erotica titles of exposure and hides them into impossible-to-find corners of their store. 
  • Microsoft is banning user profanity and nudity from Skype, X-box chat, and One-Drive. 
  • Radish is kicking off any content that contains sexy times designed to arouse, versus elicit emotional feelings. 


So much has happened since my last post! This may be my most exciting blog post ever. PLUS, I just released a new book

what has happened...

The Ghostwriter audiobook released (and listeners LOVE it!). It's on AudibleiTunes, and Amazon. Audiobooks are always fun projects to produce, and for this one, I worked hard to find a narrator that I felt could master Helena's dry humor. 

let's pull out the red carpet!

I went to Hollywood for The Ghostwriter, and am excited to announce that

Hidden Seams is HERE!

My next release, Hidden Seams, is LIVE! 

It is exclusively on Amazon, here is a link that should work for all countries. 

So… what’s this book about?

HIDDEN SEAMS is an enemies-to-lovers romance, set in New York City. It opens with the death of Vince Horace – one of the world’s most famous fashion designers. With Horace’s passing, there is suddenly a billion-dollar fortune at stake – a fortune which has been promised to Marco Lent – the sexiest man in fashion. But Marco holds a decade-long secret, and when a mysterious brunette – Avery McKenna - pops into his life, she could destroy his fortune or be the key to his happiness.

Is it a standalone?

Yes! HIDDEN SEAMS is a complete standalone, and you don’t have to read any of my other titles. That being said, if you are a passionate fan of my work, you may recognize and enjoy few characters that make brief appearances in the novel.

Is it a romance?

It is! Prepare for thick sexual tension, off-the-charts chemistry, and sex scenes so hot they may burn your fingers. I had so much fun creating the dynamic between this couple. If you enjoyed HOLLYWOOD DIRT – this has a similar vibe in terms of the character’s banter, connection, and sexual chemistry.

How much is it?

Release week pricing will be $3.99. That price will increase to $4.99 on January 24th. If you are part of Kindle Unlimited - you can read it for free!

Read it now on Amazon and/or Kindle Unlimited! 

Thank you for taking the time to read this blog post! I think you’re going to love Hidden Seams!



My next novel...

For the past year, I've been working on a novel. Maybe, back in 2016, you saw me posting about it. I spent three months working on it, then went radio silent for the next ten months. Now, I've got exciting news - it's COVER REVEAL TIME

I am so excited for you to read this book. It is such a deliciously painful story, one that will leave you guessing as much as it will pull at your emotions. It's suspenseful, a mystery that slowly unfolds as you read the story - and this is one of my only novels (EVER) where no love story exists. But don't worry. If you love my novels, my writing, and my characters ... you'll love this book. I promise you that.

The Movie Countdown has Begun!

We have an official release date for the Hollywood Dirt Movie and it's September 20th! If you want a peek at me and the other women behind the movie, watch this short video >>

Writing a book is possible...

Do you have an idea that would make a perfect book? Have you always dreamed of writing a novel?

Four years ago, I sat down to write my first book. I had zero training. I had no idea what I was doing. And I made A LOT of mistakes.

Now, I've written fourteen books. I've hit the New York Times Bestseller List eight times. One of my novels is becoming a movie. I have accomplished a dozen things that I never even imagined. And ALL because I made the decision to write my first book.

I can help you do the same. I can walk you through the process of writing your first book. I can help you tell your story, and break down the steps in an easy-to-understand and fun way.

Writing should be fun. Writing your first book can be one of the most rewarding and exciting journeys of your life.

My entire life changed with just two words: Chapter One.

Could yours?

Today is the cover reveal for TROPHY WIFE! As this release of mine is a little bit different than prior launches, I wanted to take a moment and explain it. TROPHY WIFE will release very soon (April 15th and 19th!). Here's more information behind it:

Conception: First off, this book is an expanded rerelease and rebranding of The Dumont Diaries, which I wrote three years ago and released as a set of serials. Eventually I combined the serials into a standalone novel, but I didn't go back and 'rewrite' it as a novel, so it's always felt a little disjointed to me. Lately readers have been asking me for a sexier read with a great twist -- this novel meets all of those needs, and I decided to go back and completely rework it. I'm adding 50+ pages of new content, male POVs, and improving the entire storyline. I've had so much fun rediscovering this couple and am so excited to reintroduce them, many of you have never heard of them!

Pricing:  It will initially be priced at 99c. Just for a few days, but be sure to grab it RIGHT when it releases, so you can get that discount. The reason for this intro pricing is so readers who purchased and read the original version, won't be punished.

Availability: It will be a Kindle Unlimited book. I know that this screws over iBooks/Nook users, so I am releasing it exclusively on those outlets for the first 5 days, so that those readers can snap it up (and read it!) before it hits Amazon exclusively.

What it is: This is a filthy sexy erotic romance - There is voyeurism sex, a love triangle, a dominating hero, secrets and unexpected plot twists. I love this book, and am so excited to see it properly evolve in this expanded edition.

Everyone in Nashville knows Nathan Dumont. That’s what happens when you develop half a town and sleep with the rest. 

Five years ago, his fiancee disappeared. 

Last night, he proposed to me.

I'd wanted to escape my life, the seedy strip club and the mountain of bills. I had seized the opportunity to live in a mansion, fill my days with country clubs and caviar, my nights with romance and sex.

Maybe I should have done my homework first. 


iBooks/Nook/Kobo Release: April 15th

Amazon / Kindle Unlimited Release: April 19th

Pricing: 99¢ for the first few days, then traditional pricing

Everything is humming along, with filming starting in just three weeks! And with the start date so close, that means that it's time for cast announcements!
