January 2022 - What's Going On.
I have big, big goals this year, with projects marked out for every month. I want to write and release a LOT of books, but not just as me. My first project of the year is launching my Shylyn Ray pen name.
I'm separating my contemporary romances from my paranormal romance. The first step in doing that was creating the pen name, Shylyn Ray. The second step was getting the rights back on my novellas that were previously traditionally published.
Step three... is turning those novellas into novels. I've already taken care of one, and I love it. It's got so much more depth to it. I loved diving back into it and revealing more of the hero and heroine.
Guardian Cowboy will now be "Her Guardian Cowboy." Presley and Amber are such great characters, especially now that I got to flesh them out more. Novellas were the hot thing back when I originally envisioned the couple's first meeting so I had to write their love story very tight and straight to the point. Even if you read it when it was origianlly published, you can read this updated and lengthened version and get so much more out of it.
After a failed bodyguarding assignment, the last thing Presley West wants is to save a damsel in distress, but the spunky woman he finds standing on the side of the interstate in the pouring rain brings out his protective instincts.
Amber Barlow ran from the clutches of a demon, and into the arms of an angel. But the closer she gets to her guardian cowboy, the more her fear grows, because a gentleman like Presley could never want a woman with a past as soiled as hers.
Sound good? You can check it out on March 30,2022 or go ahead and preorder!
In fact, all three of the books I'm relaunching as Shylyn Ray books are up for preorder already with release dates in March, April, and May. I'm working hard getting the other two ready to go, and then... on to the next project, writing Immortal Rage. Stay tuned!
If you'd like to stay up to date on all the Shylyn Ray books (I have a lot planned! Currently at least 4 other series), you can hop over to www.shylynray.com and sign up for the newsletter there. You'll also find a link to the Shylyn Ray Facebook page there.
Until next time...
