What’s Ki Working On? 6/11/19

Hello readers and lurkers and all folks in between. Welcome!

I’m not up to anything especially new this week in my work. I’m continuing on with two previously started books (I’ve mentioned them, I think: Jack’s Independent Omega, which will be a heretofore determined number Cherry Hollow book that ties much more loosely into the others, but does exist firmly in Cherry Hollow with many familiar faces in the back and foreground. Also, I’m writing with my wonderful, marvelous co-writer Meg, King’s Loved Omega.)

I’m also doing some content editing for a client.

(The writer’s life is so glamorous. Haha.)

HOWEVER, Meg and I are getting ready to release Luke’s Omega Roommate, which is exciting! Hopefully, by the end of the weekend, we will be dropping the next book in the Cherry Hollow series.

Surprise!

We don’t have buy links yet, but the blurb is done, the cover is done, and the book itself is due back from the editor with final tweaks and then it’s off to formatting!


Book 4

Scott Tanner doesn’t panic about problems—he plans solutions—but when he finds himself knocked up with his alpha roommate’s baby, his life begins to spiral out of control. Scott decides all his efforts must go into maintaining the grades for his scholarship, rather than risk his future. He can’t keep the baby; adoption would be more responsible. He refuses to allow his emotions, or his omega instincts, to keep him from the successful life he envisions for himself.

Australian Luke Loughty takes a happy-go-lucky approach to life, and he always lands on top, which is exactly where he likes to be when it comes to Scott Tanner. When their friends with benefits arrangement results in an unexpected pregnancy, Luke is prepared to roll with the surprise and take on the new responsibility of being a parent, alongside a job, football practice, and school.

When the time comes, Scott forces himself to hand over his newborn baby to Luke and signs away his parental rights. He worries he isn’t doing the right thing for either one of them.

Scott might plot and outline every second of his life, but Luke has a plan of his own—a family plan.

This 53,000-word story is the fourth book in the Cherry Hollow series.

The Adventures of Ki, the Intrepid Writer

(Thought that was more attention grabbing than yet another “What’s Ki Working on This Week?”)

Well, this week Luke’s Omega Rommate is with our editor! (*cheering in the background*) So, I’m waiting for that book to happen. Meg is diligently working on a book that sort of folds into the universe she created in Sinner’s Ransom (from what I understand) and hopefully I will be editing that book by the end of the weekend.

Shhhh… This is a sneak peek at the cover. 

So, there’s a lot of editing going on. 

I’ve also started working on a book we’re calling Jack’s Independent Omega. Haha. I’m doing this one alone. I hope you’re all ready for it. The story line is slightly darker than what we usually have in Cherry Hollow, but I’m trying to stick to the overall tone established in the series so far. I guess I’m just nervous. I feel like it’s going to be good. 

So as far as Love Me Real goes… I haven’t touched it this week, but I’m telling myself that means when I go back to it that the story will all come together for me. I’m not sure why I’m struggling so much with it, except maybe that it’s bringing up some unpleasant things from my own past. “Bunny” and I share some early life history, though he admittedly had it worse than I did, as is the way of fictional characters everywhere.

I guess that’s about that. Memorial Day (U.S based here.) was a day off for me, so I got less done than usual, and I’m gearing up for figuring out how to deal with the summer school break. I’m the “parent at home” with the kids when that’s necessary, and I’m going to have eight glorious weeks of trying to fit my forty hours of work per week around their schedule. Should be interesting, if nothing else.

Any tips on how to survive this would be appreciated. I wasn’t working more than fifteen hours a week last summer. (That’s just how things shook out, not what I wanted, but I can’t let it happen again.)

I hope everyone is doing well! Happy reading!


Cherry Hollow Series1

Welcome to Cherry Hollow…. Home of the Cherry Festival!

 

Book 1 (1)

Book #1 in the Cherry Hollow Series

Sheriff Trent Miller was happy with his perfect little life. Being a thirty-six-year-old omega with no partner or family suited him just fine, until it all changed. When he ran out of his heat-suppressant pills and his doctor refused to prescribe more, he had his first heat in years. Around the same time, a young alpha who drives him crazy started working as his partner.

Lawson Fisher hated Cherry Hollow. He only returned to his small hometown to help his papa when his dad was diagnosed with cancer. Working alongside Sheriff Miller was frustrating at the best of times, but when Trent went into heat, Lawson felt it was his duty to help him through it, like any good alpha. Besides, he couldn’t seem to keep his hands off Trent.

The more time Lawson spends with Trent, the more he realizes the omega isn’t as bad as he first thought. When they find out Trent’s pregnant, both their lives change. They need to decide the best thing to do for themselves and their baby, especially since not everyone in town is rooting for them to have a happily ever after.

What is Ki Working on This Week?

Hi all you readerly folks!

This week I’m working on a book for the Cherry Hollow Series that Meg and I are tentatively calling, Luke’s Omega Roomate. We’re at roughly 50 thousand words on the story, and if you’re not familiar with what that means, most romance genre novels are somewhere between 60-75 thousand words, so we’re almost done! We were hoping to get two books out in May for Cherry Hollow because we love writing the series so much, but, alas, it may not happen. Editing does take a little time. We’ll see. I’m also working on a short “missing scene” for Cherry Hollow that should be out on the Cherry Hollow website either this weekend or early next week. In the meantime, if you haven’t read the short stories there, here’s a link to the blog to catch up. They are primarily between the books snippets so far.

In other news, the audio for Brodie’s Million Dollar Omega should be going live sometime this week!

 

 

For those of you OH SO VERY PATIENTLY waiting for the next installment of the Love Me MMF mini-series: I have it mostly completed, but I’m waffling because it will mean releasing a story that is more or less a cliffhanger, and I’m thinking maybe I should wait until I have the next section done before I toss it out there. I’m not sure. I may just go for it and let people hate me. If even one person responds to just put it up, I may send it out to my editor early next week. So, YOU HAVE THE POWER, MY DEAR READERS. I’m just tired of staring at it and trying to decipher if it’s at the right spot to cut it up for this section of the story.

Love Me REAL (1)

 

I have other books in the planning stages, but these are the ones that I’m mostly working on this week. I hope everyone has a great weekend, eats lots of good food, does something they love, and takes care of themselves. (I am channeling my inner Bob Ross today.)

As always, thank you, and happy reading!

Riley’s Forbidden Omega: Those First Date Butterflies

Riley Teaser1

Riley’s Forbidden Omega © Ki Brightly and Meg Bawden

Riley Sheridan has it all—loving family, college football career, and good looks. The only thing he’s missing is a relationship with the one person he can never have. As a teenager, Riley met Ambrose Whitlock precisely once and knew, without a doubt, that he wanted to be with him. The next time Riley saw Ambrose was at his alpha uncle’s wedding—as an omega groom.

Ambrose Whitlock-Harlow tried to love the husband his father arranged for him to marry, but Jacob was demanding, borderline cruel, and more focused on his political career than his young husband. Jacob leaves when, after several years, Ambrose doesn’t become pregnant.

One stormy night Ambrose’s life is turned upside down by Riley returning to town with an abandoned dog he found on the highway. Riley doesn’t know where to take the mutt, and Ambrose is well-known for his work at the local animal shelter. It doesn’t take Riley and Ambrose long to pick up the fragile relationship they started years ago.

The more time Riley and Ambrose spend together, the faster they fall in love. Not everyone approves, especially when Ambrose becomes pregnant with Riley’s child. The divorce isn’t official yet, and Jacob threatens to take away everything Riley and Ambrose built together.

This 92,000 word story is the third book in the Cherry Hollow Series.
