FRACTURED JEWEL Cover Reveal!
Those of you who have been asking when (or if) there’ll be another Starstruck book, rejoice! A brand-new Starstruck novella, Fractured Jewel, is nearly ready for release! This novella picks up where Starfall left off, setting the stage for a new spin-off series that will feature characters and places you’ve already come to know, along with some new ones.
As I mentioned in my last newsletter, I’m not exactly what anyone would call a fast writer. I’m too much of a perfectionist to let a book (or novella) go–even to my editor–before I’m sure I’ve made it absolutely the best I’m capable of. The fact that I write in two different genres (which means I have two different sets of readers demanding more books) slows things down even more! Last year, most of my writing efforts were devoted to giving my long-deprived historical romance readers a book they’d been begging for for several years. But practically the moment Gallant Scoundrel released, on the last day of February, I dove back into my Starstruck world. Fractured Jewel is now being edited, and I’m already starting to draft another full-length novel for my teen fiction readers to enjoy. I’m hoping to release that book by the end of the year, but…see above. 🙂 You’ll get first word in my newsletters and here at my Starstruck website!
CAUTION: SPOILERS AHEAD!
If you haven’t finished all four books of the Starstruck series yet, you may not want to read the end of this post!
a Starstruck novella
Change is never easy. Sometimes it’s downright dangerous.
Over the past year, M and Rigel have averted various threats: to their relationship, to M’s people and to both Mars and Earth. M’s aunt now knows the truth about her origins and M and Rigel no longer need to hide that they’re a couple. The future looks bright…but not everyone is happy with the way things are changing. When unexpected resistance arises from multiple quarters, M and Rigel will again have to work together to safeguard both the secret of their people and the little town of Jewel, Indiana.
