Devereaux Cox is HERE!

I don’t mean to say “I told you so…” but I did 🙂

Book 2 in Sacked & Tackled is finally out!  I thank Sable Hunter for taking the time to read it give me a little blurb. It really is an EMOTIONAL ride that I hope readers will enjoy so her review totally tickled me.

Also, ‪#‎DevCox‬ is the FIRST of my books that will also be available on B&N, Kobo and iBooks. I wanted to expand my base and while it will be a bit of a challenge, I felt like I really had nothing to lose by opting out of KU.
For now, here are the Amazon links:

When I get the other links, I’ll share but I am so happy to introduce this story to readers.


Devereaux Cox is coming soon…no really!

It’s been an intense birthday month for me and by intense I mean a lot has happened; mostly good and some not. But the one thing I am looking forward to is the release of the next installment of Sacked and Tackled. I’ve gotten some initial feedback about it that confirms Continue reading Devereaux Cox is coming soon…no really!

Did Palessa Fall Off the Face of the Earth? and Other Questions You’re Not Asking :)

So, um…did you really?

Maybe…I like the idea of falling off the face of the earth for a bit. Anyway, I needed the break and it’s a nice new normal for me every once in a while. Writing is intense for me and when I get the chance to do it, the story pretty much owns me. So after I put out a draft of a couple of new stories, I took a break. In fact, Continue reading Did Palessa Fall Off the Face of the Earth? and Other Questions You’re Not Asking 🙂

Sacked & Tackled 2 is with the publisher…now what?

Last year, I was fortunate enough to have some downtime by being offline. Now, the first time that happened in May 2014, I wasn’t happy about it at all. Facebook is my means of communicating with my friends, fans, publisher…a lot of people. For me to go dark like that, I was just…I didn’t know if I could handle it. But I had to because my ISP was being “difficult” and I needed to find another one.

Baxter Family Series is OVER plus Sacked & Tackled

So, I’m in the throes of editing and promoting and other stuff that I want to and NEED to do. To say I’ve been busy…is an understatement and I’m good with that. In the midst of everything I was having a conversation with someone about teasers (I’ve become a PicMonkey addict and I love it) and that’s when it hit me.

The Baxter Family Series is OVER

Now, I wrote Story of Us back in August 2014 and had thoughts of a Book 4 but it just didn’t feel right. I put the thought away and worked on Eyubea Girls as well as Sacked & Tackled with the thought that I would work on book 4 of the series later this year. But when I was chatting with someone, six months later, it just became clear that the Baxter Family Series is essentially done.

Two points to clarify

1. I know there are a lot of loose ends in the series and I did those on purpose because I wanted to be able to go back to the family, character, stories whenever I got the message to do so. When I say the Baxter Family Saga is done, I mean the main series and not the stories themselves. For example, BROKEN MIND is a Baxter backstory I created as a free read (Read the first chapter here) Believe me, there is more to come from them in one way or another.

2. QUINN. She’s known as the “forgotten” Baxter because I mention her and she’s a bit of a lurker. Because of that and the fact that she is so young when Cass and Grayson were going through their dramas, it just didn’t seem fitting to have her anchor the series when Story of Us just seemed to be satisfying punctuation to the main theme of enduring love that started in Unchained Hearts. So Quinn’s story will be the start of a new series that will have a couple of new characters I have been wanting to unleash for a while. I promised myself a start later in the year of a firmer outline for her book as well as some research. Quinn Baxter is not forgotten; she a new start that I’m happy to make. I think it fits her.

That’s what I mean when I say, the series is done…done for now in this form 🙂

Now, about Sacked & Tackled…

I just got back the first edits of the book and I have some other plans for it, which I will reveal later. But it’s coming along nicely. I am looking forward to getting it out in the next few weeks so please #FavePalessa and #LikePalessa for updates.
