2022: Halfway Through the Year Check In!

Friday, July 1, 2022 No comments

Hello, lovelies!

I hope the first half of 2022 has treated you well. Mine has been a rollercoaster to be completely honest. Today I'll be talking about how 2022 has been so far and how the rest of the year will be.

The First Half

I spent a portion of it putting together a multi-author anthology. The purpose of the anthology is for a bunch of steamy romance authors to write stories that take place at a tropical resort. It's been fun working together on this project as well as writing for it. My story, Somebody to Treasure, will be featured in the anthology. It's a friends-to-lovers/celebrity romance. This anthology is coming out in August, but I finally finished edits and got it mostly ready yesterday.

On June 21st, I contracted COVID. This sort of put a wrench in a lot of plans for the remainder of the year as it set me back by weeks. This leads me to...

The Second Half

The Sizzling Summer Nights in Paradise anthology is still releasing on August 1st and will feature Somebody to Treasure by me along with several other tropical resort stories by other authors. When the anthology comes down I plan on putting STT up on retailers. STT is going to be the first book in a series of celebrity romances.

The second book in the series, Somebody to Adore, was going to be published in November. Unfortunately, due to COVID, a lot of my plans for the year have been pushed back. My new goal for the book is to release it in December instead. There was also going to be a third book in the series in January/February, but I'm pushing that back to March.

I'm still currently playing catch-up on my online work and chores around the apartment. While I am no longer sick, I'm still having trouble remaining focused and struggling with periodic fatigue. I'm crossing my fingers that these lingering issues will go away or at the very least become more manageable, but in the meantime, I have to make adjustments for the sake of my sanity.

Thanks for understanding and for reading this post!
