This is 40.

On the social networks, I promised amazing news earlier this week, and I thought today was a good time to reveal it. Birthdays are always an occasion to look back on the past year or years, but we tend to take an even closer look when there's a zero at the end...

I'm happy to share I've signed contracts for two more books with my fabulous publisher Eternal Press; an erotic (*blush*) novella and a mystery. That's in addition to the two that will come out sometime this year; Spring Fever for which I have no official release date but July looks likely, and The Interpretation of Love and the Truth). I really wanted to get published before my 40th birthday. The journey so far has been amazing. I'm glad to have found a publisher who allows me to grow and explore different avenues in my genres, romance and mystery, and readers who follow me into both.

These stories were recently accepted:

Open Spaces is about the shared experience of two women who must decide if what they have is enough to survive the morning after.

Amber Alert--the title speaks for itself, I think, but there's more to the story. You will have to wait a little while, but I promise it will be worth it. While my main character is the first straight leading lady I've written in some time, LGBT characters and issues are relevant in this story.

Of course, I haven't forgotten about Callie and Rebecca. The fourth and last story about them, Summer Wine, is getting closer to being ready for submission.

Forty is looking more exciting than I could ever imagine--thanks to my readers, the amazing team at Eternal Press,

and D, my love. I couldn't have done this without you.


  1. Happy Birthday Barb.
    I look forward to reading your new books. Everyone you described sounds interesting. With that being said I'm leaving with your birthday celebrations. Hope you had good birthday and a good evening.

  2. Thanks so much, Louise, that means a lot! I'm looking forward to sharing all those stories. I've had a great day too.
