I promised I’d do a new edition of mini reviews weeks ago, if not months, and here we finally are. I’ve read a ton of amazing books lately, so picking four to highlight wasn’t easy, but here we are. These are in random order. [Read more…] about Mini Reviews: Four Recent Five-Star Reads
I’m super early with this one, but there’s a reason for that. Since I’ll be taking off almost the entire month of August to travel with my son, I won’t be writing. I’ve worked hard this year, releasing a new book almost every month and also managing and publishing a crap ton of translations. I really need a break…and I’m super excited to spend four weeks on the road with my kid.
That means the last book in the White House Men series won’t be written until I get back and won’t be released until October 29. To make sure you all know I will finish this series as soon as I can, I wanted to put up the preorder already. That way, everyone knows the book will be coming… I wish I could release it sooner, but all the books in this series are over 95k words, so they take a while to write!

I’m always excited for the moment I can reveal the title and cover of my upcoming book, and this time is no different. We’ve made it to book 6 in the White House Men series with only one more book to go after this. If you’ve followed this series, you’ll know we still need answers to a lot of questions… Well, in this book, you’ll get them. [Read more…] about Cover and Title Reveal White House Men 6
One of the things I used to do on my site was a weekly poll. I loved asking all kinds of questions and seeing readers’ answers. Unfortunately, the program I used for that stopped being free, and the paid plans were outrageously expensive. But I’m happy to report I found an alternative that’s affordable and that also allows me to build fun polls. Look, it’s even pink! [Read more…] about New Weekly Poll
Care (White House Men 5) was released last week, so that means it’s time for the usual question: what’s next? I’ve already started working on the next book, as always, so let me tell you a little about what my plans are going forward. [Read more…] about What’s Next?
This week, I have a special guest. Professor Warrick Duvall is one of the main characters of Care, the fifth book in the White House Men series, that came out last week. Care tells the story of how Warrick fell in love with Kenn Shafer, President Shafer’s son. I’m elated that Warrick agreed to chat with me today.
Professor Duvall, thank you so much for being willing to talk to me.
My pleasure. And please, call me Warrick.
Has the informal attitude of this White House rubbed off on you?
[laughs] I suppose so. I have to say I appreciate it, though. It’s a welcome change after spending many years in the military and in academia. [Read more…] about Interview with Warrick Duvall
I’ve been participating in some themed promotions lately, like the family/found family one, and I love these. Sometimes, you’re just in the mood for certain books, and promotions like this help you scratch that itch. This time, the theme of the promotion is The Working Man.
In some books, character’s jobs are unimportant and play a minor role. But sometimes, you want to read about a man who actually works, whether it’s being a cowboy, a first responder, a rent boy, or in my case, two men who work on a cruise ship. Check out all the books in the The Working Man promotion here. [Read more…] about The Working Man
For the first time, we have an interview with a character who has not had his “own” book. Yet. Please welcome President Delano Shafer from the White House Men series. If you haven’t read the series yet, please be aware that this interview may contain spoilers!
President Shafer, thank you so much for making the time in your busy schedule for an interview.
My pleasure, Nora. I was delighted with the books you wrote with the stories of my staff members. I think you did a phenomenal job catching their characters and their stories. I got very emotional reading through them. [Read more…] about Interview with President Delano Shafer
