I feel like it’s been a really long time since I talked to you guys! (That’s because it has been!) I was injured and then got the flu so I was basically out of commission for all of August and I’m just now getting back to work. I have a pretty long farm update video that will fill you in on what’s going on around here and then there’s a bunch of other stuff below to scroll through too.
MEET MY NEW HORSE!
I got a lot of zucchini from the garden and I used it to feed the chickens (a little) but also to make about 10 loaves of zucchini bread. Which is sweet, like banana read, but so. Much. better! If you would like the recipe I used you can find it IN THE VIDEO BELOW FROM STIVERS HOMESTEAD
NEW SUFFOLK PUNCH DRAFT HORSE – MOJU!

So let’s get started!
First of all – the winners of the giveaways are listed below. Congrats to all of you! (They have all been contacted and have responded).
GIVEAWAY 1 WINNER – Elizabeth Sibilsky Enselman
GIVEAWAY 2 WINNER – Leanne Smith
GIVEAWAY 3 WINNER – Tabitha Moncada
GIVEAWAY 4 WINNER – Marie Jocke
I wish I could give everyone a prize. I know times are really tough right now and there’s not a whole lot of relief on the horizon. But I WILL be running a 12 DAYS OF GIVEAWAYS again in December. And that’s 12 WINNERS! If you’re not familiar with my annual Christmas giveaway it starts on December 1 and goes through December 12. Each day there is a new massive giveaway and the winners are chosen on December 15 and their packages go in the mail a couple days later.
I’m usually really slow at mail but I’m quick about this one. Almost everyone got their prizes before Christmas last year.
So if you didn’t win this time, there are a lot more chances coming up. Also, my giveaways are always open INTERNATIONAL (Unless the US post office refuses to deliver mail to your country). Which happened last year.
If you have been waiting for the SAVAGE SAINTS AUDIOBOOK – then it’s your lucky day! It’s out now and the narration by Jason Clarke and Hathaway Lee is FANTASTIC!
The NEW FREE BOOK FOR THIS NEWSLETTER IS ROCK! This is a sexy thriller set in Colorado. AND – if you’re an audio-only reader – this one is FREE to listen to in the AUDIBLE PLUS CATALOG and it’s NARRATED BY SEBASTIAN YORK! Links below for both of those!

UP NEXT IS the last book in the Monsters of Saint Mark’s series. This is book 3 and it has an ending this this story arc, but I will be writing more in this world. So expect another spin-off series in 2023.
UP NEXT AFTER THAT is my VAMPIRE BOOK! I have not released the title yet but I think it will go up on pre-order in November/December – and the audiobook will release with the ebook and paperback – so look for that coming soon.
UP NEXT AFTER THAT – I *think* will be another book in the Sick Heart WORLD. Not a book 2. I told you that was a standalone and I meant it. This book will follow another major character in the Sick Heart story though. Someone I know I was intrigued with. Plus a bunch of others will be making an appearance.
UP NEXT AFTER THAT will be a new romantic suspense series. 6 books. Hot, smutty enemies to lovers to start. I will have to more to say about these two projects by the end of the year.
Plus I will be writing the spin-off to Monsters of Saint Mark’s and another new cyborg romance. The one I asked you guys for your opinion on. I will be writing that dystopian too. Thanks for everyone who answered that question on the blog. I think it was for Giveaway 2 mentioned above. People were pretty evenly split so I figured I would just write both series.
I have like 30 books planned out over the next two and a half years. I know I’ve slowed down a lot in the past couple years but I plan on releasing a LOT of books next year. Almost one a month. And alternating between romance and paranormal romance/sci-fi romance. So if you prefer one over the other, you will still get a bunch of new books.
And my final bit of news this time is that I WILL BE SIGNING AT BOOK BONANZA NEXT YEAR. And Johnathan McClain will be joining me. If you haven’t heard he and I under contract to write a rom com for our audio publisher. We’re gonna start that in October. And he’s just about done with the Circle. The final book in the Shape of Love series. I know you guys have been waiting a long time for this final book but he was off doing important movie-making stuff and generally being a big shot. lol. So we forgive him for that, right? (We do.)
If you want more information about ATTENDING BOOK BONANZA please join this FACEBOOK GROUP. All the information is in there.
I know people are asking about the annual singed book order form – I have bad news and good news. I will not be having a signed book order form this year BUT I WILL have one early in 2023.
I just don’t have the time or energy to get one done by Christmas this year. There’s just too much going on. But I won’t leave you guys hanging. I think the order form will go up in January or February with a delivery date of April or May.
See you in a couple weeks!
Thanks for the update. It’s nice seeing Moju and Annie together. That must have been fun to watch. Sorry your August was miserable.
I’m stunned by the number of books you’re writing. God bless you. I will be budgeting accordingly. I love the updates about your animals. Again, when do you sleep? I was serious about those frolicking unicorns. I will read ANYTHING with your name on it. Thank you for keeping me sane.
I’m stunned how your creative mind works and the sheer volume of books you release but I’m doing a happy dance here in Florida that The Circle is coming!!
Thank you for the free book & update in your newsletter. The zucchini bread looks delicious and I hope you enjoyed it.
Thanks for the updates. I’m glad you’re feeling better. 😊
I may have to drop off a cart of all my books that I’ve collected since BB19 for you to sign at your leisure! There’s soooooooo many since you’re my #1! (That sounds creepy but I’m not Kathy Bates in Misery) 😂
Ty! For the free book!!! Loved seeing the pictures of your farm and the zucchini recipe is right up my alley! Can’t wait to read your new vampire series!!!! Much luv!💋💕😉☀
Thanks for the updates on the farm and your writing. I hope you are starting to feel better now and things are looking up for you. Love lots! 💖
Thanks for all the updates in this new newsletter. Glad you are feeling better. I am excited about your vampire series.
Thank you Julie 💖
I love The farm update! I would love to live on a farm but it’s a lot of work. And even before I was sick, I was lazy. So I will just stick to low maintenance cats.
You have so many books planned and they sound amazing. I am so looking forward to all of them. I love your sci-fi and dystopian and off the wall mind and I can’t wait to delve into those books! I’m very excited about the vampires and the new monsters of St Mark’s book. Junco likes when I read books to her so I think that she will like these too.
You keep writing and I will keep reading. Love you! Thank you
Oh, Moju and Annie on the same pasture! So they can be friends after all! Hmmm…! 🙂
I love you! Stay safe! 💜
I always love the farm updates. Looks like everyone and everything is thriving. I’m glad you’ve recovered but don’t push yourself too hard. The body needs time to recover. Your rooster might benefit from a case of laryngitis though. Did you always live on a farm before you moved there? You have so much knowledge about what all the animals need.
I’m super excited for all the new books on the way. I can’t wait to hear them.
Take care. Thanks for all the news. ❤️
Oh Wow ! Suffolk Punch. You are so lucky, absolutely majestic Horses. We have Highland Cows and Blue Texel Sheep, I am not allowed Goats (apparently). The Cows can get a little err exuberant shall we say but the sheep are just like having lots of Labradors – tummy lead x I am very much looking forward to reading all your new books – always much anticipated and lots of half read books because there’s a new J A Huss/K C Cross book out !!! I will have a good go at the Courgette Bread but for a Farmer’s wife from Yorkshire ( England) I am a dreadful baker xx
You are after my heart! Hot, smutty, enemies to lovers is my absolute favorite. I just declared that in another group a couple days ago when a blog was having their one-year anniversary party or something with lots of authors and lots of fun questions and stuff. One of the questions was, “What is your favorite kind of romance?” The only additional word I had was “dark.” Is that maybe a given? (Hopeful!!!)
Wow you are amazing, I cant believe you have planned so many new books in such a turn around. I cant wait for the Vampire books, I love these sort and I am sooooo excited to see where you mind and writing will take us with this. I totally love EOBS so please never stop doing these. Huge fan from a farm in New Zealand
