Corrupt Update

Friday, February 27th, 2015

Hey everyone!

In case you’re one of the readers interested in Corrupt, my next project, this is for you!

I have every intention of releasing CORRUPT this year. As most of you know I had to stop writing it to write AFLAME and now I’m finishing up another project with my publisher, but CORRUPT is a top priority after that. I have a date in my head, but I won’t commit to anything publicly right now. I just want to load it up and surprise you.

For anyone that read the synopsis and has questions about the content of the story, I’ll just say that it is a dark erotica, so you know…don’t be surprised if it’s a…DARK EROTICA 🙂 Expect dark themes, 4 anti-heroes, and 1 kick-ass girl.

On a personal note, all of my readers are used to my New Adult work. If CORRUPT isn’t your cup of tea, I completely understand if you don’t read it. And it doesn’t mean I’m writing only erotica from now on. Next, I have a lighter contemporary romance in the works, so I’m not locking myself into one genre.

Alrighty! Back to work. Thanks for your excitement and questions!


Aflame Sneak Peek!

Saturday, February 14th, 2015

Here is a small snippet from AFLAME for your Valentine’s Day reading pleasure. Have a wonderful day full of good times, and happy reading everyone!


I love mornings like this. Mornings when I wake up first, and I can just watch her sleep for a few minutes. The smooth, glowing skin of her chest rises and falls with her shallow breaths, and I know that if I slide my fingers up her back, underneath her tank top, I’ll feel her sweat. She overheats when she sleeps.

I relax into the chair by her window, watching her soft pink lips purse as she starts to stir. Her long, slender neck calls to me, and I’m desperate.

Fucking desperate never to leave her. Wanting never to do what I know I have to do right now.

Tate holds my heart, and I could choke trying to swallow and bury my need for her.

I try to remember the good things. The things that will keep me alive in her heart while I’m away. The rainy nights in my car. How the skin of her neck tastes different from the skin of her lips. How hot she gets under the sheets.

How I hate sleeping alone now.

Her phone starts vibrating on her nightstand, and I tighten my fists, knowing that everything is about to fall apart.

When she wakes, I have to hurt her.

Author Events

Wednesday, February 4th, 2015

Hello everyone!

Over the past year, I’ve attended several author events, and they have been some of the most amazing experiences of my life. Imagine a girl who didn’t have the support of her peers as a youth and how wonderful it is that people actually want to meet her now. Talk about a change of pace! It has all been surreal but definitely wonderful, too. These events have validated who I am and what’s been hiding in my head for so many years, and I hope I’ve never taken any of it for granted.

Thank you to each and every reader who has come out to get a book signed or just say “hi.” And thank you to the organizers and volunteers who do it all out of the goodness of their hearts.

Unfortunately, I am going to start pulling back from events in the future. The hubs and I have had to talk and prioritize, because even though the events are fun for the both of us, it has taken a toll on our family. Since we have no relatives here in Las Vegas, we have no one to help when I travel. Since my husband would need to take off work anyway to watch our daughter, I usually just bring my family with us, so we all can enjoy the trip. This means Aydan misses school.

After three trips just in the past four months, we’ve faced the reality that my husband’s job and my daughter’s education are far more important. For this reason, I have cancelled my Melbourne, Australia signing next October. My daughter would have to miss school for an extended period of time, and while I could go without my family, it wouldn’t be fun or fair to leave them out. I am truly sorry to disappoint anyone, but I hope you understand.

My Portland signing in July is still on (it’s summer break-YAY!), and I have every intention of getting to Australia eventually. For now, we are slowing down, but once I’m confident that Aydan is above level, a trip here and there during the school year shouldn’t be out of the question. Thank you for understanding, and again, I am truly sorry to disappoint.

xoxo Penelope
