LUX Release Date

Hi guys!

Sooooo, I’ve been getting a lot of inquiries about the release date of LUX (book three in the Nocte Trilogy). I’m afraid I have some news that you aren’t going to like much.

The release date has been pushed back until August, hopefully the first couple weeks of August. I know. That’s so far away. Please don’t hate me.

There are a couple of reasons.

1. I’ve gone through what you might call a personal crisis. I’m ok, so don’t worry, but it put me on my ass for awhile. Today is the first day that I’ve actually been at my keyboard in weeks. It wouldn’t have been fair to Calla’s story to try and write it while I was so unfocused. Calla deserves the best story possible, and so do you. I’ll be back in the saddle again on Monday to finish up LUX and to start writing a couple other exciting projects.

2. Audible bought the audio rights for the Nocte Trilogy, so after I finish LUX, I have to wait 60 days after I turn it in to Audible to release it on e-book and in print. So even if I finished it tomorrow (which isn’t feasible), then I would still have to wait until June 29 to release it. That’s not going to happen. I’m probably a few weeks away from finishing it including the editing process, and then the release date has to be 60 days after I turn it in.

So, to summarize, I’ll be working hard to bring you the best possible conclusion of LUX. The story is all in my head– I know exactly what is going to happen…. and trust me, you won’t see it coming. I can’t wait to start writing again, and bring you this story.

Thank you so much for your patience with me, and I hope you’re having an amazing week!

Day 2 of IYS Two Year Anniversary Shennanigans!


Happy Day two of the Two Year Anniversary of IF YOU STAY!


Today, we’re having a graphic meme contest, which I have to tell you, is usually my favorite of all contests.  I love seeing the artsy things that everyone comes up with!

For today, create a graphic meme using one of these quotes:

  • “She’s a breath of fresh air.  I may be the big bad wolf, but even wolves need to breathe.”
  • “You’ve seen me at my worst.  Maybe you should see me at my best.” “And when are you at your best?” “In bed.”
  • “I need him to breathe.”

You can share the meme on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, but make sure to tag it with #LoveNeverFails so that we can find it when we’re choosing winners.  We’ll choose Three winners next Friday, so this contest will last for a week.  :)

Good luck!  I can’t wait to see your #LoveNeverFails memes!  :)
