I have some news to share for my contemporary readers.
Remember I said that Ricochet was going to be a standalone novel?
Well it is.
At this time, I don’t have any plans to build a series around Nick & Aubree. That’s not to say I wouldn’t consider a small spin off novella, perhaps an epilogue down the road if readers want more of these two, but at this point, Nicks’s story feels complete to me, so I’m leaving it alone.
I’m not done with this particular world yet. See, as I was writing Ricochet, another storyline was snaking it’s way into my brain—another character, representing the not-so-innocent fraction of the population affected by The Culling sweeps. His story is going to be about betrayal and vengeance, and of course, love (and lust!). The book runs somewhat parallel to Nick’s, showing the other side of what happens on Devil’s Night to those considered enemies of the ruthless Seven Mile Crew.
The male MC is a tortured antihero, an unlikely hero—a man with a bad ass temper and a death wish. Like many of the alphas I write, he walks the line between good and bad, savior and annihilator. Merciless and unapologetic. And now fueled by revenge.
You’ll see some familiar characters—DeMarcus Corley, Rev, Brandon Malone—but for the most part, it’ll be a whole new story with a whole new couple and some new characters thrown in. It is a romance, in fact, a very raw and powerful love story, amid the darkness and violence.
This book is titled Backfire and you can ADD IT TO GOODREADS!
Backfire will be a companion novel to Ricochet, as part of my Vigilantes set. It'll be a standalone, and my intent is to write it so that a reader can pick up either book in the set, without feeling confused as to what's going on.
I’ll be working with a very talented cover designer and I’m looking forward to sharing the face of this book with all of you once it’s ready!
I’m also working on Book 4 for my PNR series, Sons of Wrath, so I suspect the release date for Backfire is going to be spring 2016.
More to come so stay tuned!
