Psst. Look here!

I have some THINGS to share. Weird little things that I find interesting and have been meaning to mention, but haven’t. So here I am. Finally sharing.

Thing 1: If you like Day-in-the-Life style snippets featuring characters from older books, make sure you’ve signed up for my newsletter. I have a TON of off the cuff scenes and stories I’ve written over the years that I’m going to push out to newsletter subscribers once I get them polished up a bit. A TON, guys. So many.

Thing 2: If you’ve read one of my books, please consider leaving a review. Not only does it give an author (me!) a boost, it also helps other readers discover books and series. Reviews can have such a tremendous impact and I’m grateful for every one. (Even the not-so-great ones. Really.)

If you’re hesitating because you think you don’t have time to write out something deep and profound or you just don’t know what to write, short and sweet is just as valid as more in-depth. Seriously. You can just say you enjoyed the characters and liked their interactions or you thought the sexy times were so smokin’ you had to take a five-minute breather after reading.

I’m pretty sure the way to an author’s heart is through reviews. Or maybe that’s just me.

Thing 3: Do you remember what I said above about all those scenes and short stories I’ve accumulated over the years? Well, September’s release is going to be a box set of the Anderson High Wolves series WITH BONUS SHORT STORIES. I’m working on the cover now and then I just need to format the whole shebang and do the administrative stuff to get it out there. I’m aiming for this weekend for the release, but nothing’s official yet. I just like to have goals for myself.

So. Newsletter, short stories, reviews, upcoming release. That about covers things. You know, unless I remember something two seconds after I post this. Which happens. Welcome to a writer’s brain! It’s messy in here.


Looking back on July…

Looking back on July…

GOODBYE, JULY! I’ll miss how productive I was with you! How productive was I? you wonder. DON’T WORRY! I’LL TOTALLY TELL YOU! July being a Camp NaNo month, I committed to writing 30K words. Which is…pretty much what I write normally in a month. So I wasn’t really stretching myself or anything with that goal. […]


Blank pages are a new beginning

Blank pages are a new beginning

I’ve seen a lot of posts lately on Facebook…Hold up. I said that wrong. I’ve seen, like, three posts about this. Which isn’t really “a lot,” is it? I’ve seen a COUPLE posts on Facebook about how writers have a hard time getting started when that dreaded blank page is staring at them. Because beginnings […]

Looking back on June…

*squints at June* Man, these months zoom by, don’t they? (I KNOW I say that every month, but WHAT THE HELL, MAN, GIVE ME TIME TO APPRECIATE THE CRAZY BEFORE MOVING ONTO THE NEXT CRAZY!) *ahem* So. June. I did stuff. I drank A LOT of coffee. I took an unplanned vacation. Which might sound […]


July’s a Camp NaNo month!

July’s a Camp NaNo month!

Alright, suckers. It’s time for another ride down Camp NaNo lane. Or something. I’m not going to pull any punches here, I pretty much LOVE NaNo months. I INVARIABLY get more writing accomplished in those months than I do in non-NaNo months. Like, double the amount more. Which is fantastic when I’m looking to finish […]

Looking back on May

Holy crumb, these months go by SO FAST. Soooo… what did I do in May? Well, we saw the release of No Reservations, book 1 in the Wicked Pride series. As for the rest of that series, I finished writing book 4 and I’m currently working on edits for book 2. I’m close to finishing those […]

Looking back on March

Whew! Another month has come and gone. Let’s see what got accomplished in the world of Kelly Apple. As February wound down, I was all set to devote March to writing the 6th Grimwood book. That, umm, didn’t happen. Thanks in large part to an unexpected foray into a sci-fi romance I was playing around […]
