My Decadent Journey

Wow, it’s hard to believe I celebrated my first year with Decadent in February. It’s been the most amazing time!

Decadent had been on my radar since they opened their doors. A smaller, newer publisher than most, but it consistently produced beautiful, eye-catching covers. I admired the work of its authors. I was somewhat reluctant to add another publisher to the mix, but its 1NS series hooked my muse. I wrote two and submitted them. And Decadent accepted them!

Once I began working with Decadent’s wonderful team, I was so glad I took a chance on them. In this unstable publishing climate, authors must be careful about choosing publishers. But Decadent is a wonderful fit. They don’t sign you, then shuffle you through their system and forget about you. Each one you interact with treats you like a person, one they value. That’s the most wonderful part about Decadent – it’s like a family. A supportive and enthusiastic family that cheers you on, constantly looks for ways to get out word of your stories. I couldn’t be happier.

So now I have three 1NS stories, and three more coming soon. Last year, Decadent also published two of my paranormals, Dead to Rights and Death Is A Bitch. This year, I’m so thrilled that my paranormal novella Cursed will launch their new Tease line! And the second book, Charmed, will follow. Also look for a historical novella, Betting It All, from Decadent this year, too.

Quite a whirlwind, but the best kind of busy an author can hope for! I hope I do Decadent proud.

Check out all the Decadent Journeys here. Special thanks to JoAnne Kenrick and Valerie Mann for organizing this!

Here are my Decadent babies! These two are coming soon... and below are the titles already released.

I agree, Fierce. Love 'em. Cheers!

Thanks Hales. I would get posters made but then all I'd do is stare at them and never get anything done, lol.
