Last year did not go as smoothly as I hoped. But life happens and I prefer to look forward instead of back. 2023 has lots of potential and I'm excited to put out more books. Cat's Chance in Hell is out and readers are giving it great reviews. Whew. I'm so happy to see it out in the world. Baltimore is one of my favorite cities so writing Charm City Chronicles is pure pleasure and gives me lots of excuses to do research trips.
Cat's Chance in Hell will be out in audio very, very soon. Greg Tremblay/Boudreaux narrates and I am jumping up and down in excitement for you all to hear it. He's really showcased his range--and accents--in this one. If you've read the book already, you know why I'm so excited (no spoilers). If ACX/Audible cooperate, it could be out as early as the first week of February. *crosses fingers*
After that is the republication of my YBBB novella, Demon for the Win, set in my Much Ado About Demons world. It has a new (and much improved) cover and I'm setting it up to re-release at the same time as the audiobook. I'm shooting for February 23rd, but we'll see what ACX/Audible have to say about that. Darcy Stark narrates and I'm once again really happy with what he's done with these characters.
From there, I'm planning (assuming my muse cooperates) to go back to A Demon’s Dilemma. It's set in the Much Ado About Demons world (Verona) and will be Az's story. If you've read Must Love Demons, you know this one's going to be a bit of a rough ride. He's got some 'splaining to do. And I promise you, he'll do it. I love a good redemption arc.
I'm debating whether to also start working on the next Charm City book. I have the first chapter in my head, so I may write it down and just see where it goes . . .
I'll to do my best to get Starfig Investigations Book 5 (tentatively titled, Turnabout is Fairy Play) out in the world in 2023. This will be Bill's story. While Twig's POV is easy for me to write, others' POVs are not. It took me months to finally nail Quinn's voice and to know that I was really telling HIS story and not letting Twig tell it for him. I assume it will be the same with Bill, so fair warning, that I'll do my best, but this one may take a little longer.
I have a sooper sekret project planned for the fall, but I'm not able to speak about that one just yet, but just know that something else is coming. I should also have the Italian translation of Cat's Chance in Hell out sometime in the fall. And that's it for now. If things change, I'll come back and update.
