2020 and Beyond Projects

(These may change)

Just the Essentials Two: Agnes’s Story

  • Tentative Release: 2020
  • Series: Sequel to Just the Essentials
  • Genre: Sweet New Adult Romance

Status: About a year ago, I wrote and sent the first chapter to my contemporary newsletter subscribers. They liked it, and now I’m working on an outline.

Fairy Tale Kingdoms Book 4

A retelling of Goldilocks or Cinderella or Jorinda and Joringel.

Status: I haven’t settled on a fairy tale yet, but I’ve been brainstorming fun plots for all of the tales listed above. In the case of Jorinda and Joringel, I know exactly what my story is, but I’m not sure it’s time to write it.

A quick note about Hair of Gold: it’s in the Fairy Tale Kingdoms lineup, but it must be later in the series. I promise Rapunzel’s going to get her story.

27 Ways Books

I have several more books planned for the characters introduced in the 27 Ways series. There is only one more book in this series, but the rest of the characters will show up again in spinoffs.


Books on Hold

Right now, I’ve had to put the Silver & Orchids spinoff and the companion novel aside. It’s not working. I don’t know why–I’m not happy about it either–but I’ve wasted a solid six months trying to get one book done. This doesn’t mean I’ll never return to the world. It just means I’m not in the right place to write it now. I’d rather put my energy into a project that’s working.
