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.

Book 4.jpg

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.

Riley’s Forbidden Omega: Those First Date Butterflies

Riley Teaser1

black and white cherry

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.

Riley’s Forbidden Omega: Third Book in the Cherry Hollow MPREG Series

Book 3

So, today I’m doing a very satisfying thing. I’m clearing off my desk of the post it notes for the editing of Riley’s Forbidden Omega. It is what it is, as they say, and Meg and I released that baby into the wild.

I’ve been doing a lot of editing lately, maybe more editing than writing. I don’t necessarily mind it, even though sometimes I resent the time spent doing it. Editing is amazing. It makes every book sparkle and shine, and takes a good story to a great (and sometimes far more understandable) story.

I guess I’m a liar. I don’t hate editing. I love editing.

Anyway, releasing Riley’s Forbidden Omega was my weekend, and I would love to thank everyone who has picked it up so far. You’re all amazing and we rely on you to keep this series running.

Thanks again,

Ki

Thanks for reading, everyone! I’m doing my first day blitz, but will come back to talk about Cherry Hollow, my move to KU with my books, and my other projects soon. Thanks! 

Brodie’s Million Dollar Omega

Cherry Hollow Series #2

✨Available in KU✨

🍒🍒🍒🍒🍒🍒🍒🍒🍒🍒🍒🍒

 

Brodie Miller is an alpha who has had a rough year living in the city. His omega maxed out his credit cards and left him high and dry. The failed relationship sends Brodie running for a free room at home and the familiar comfort of small town living in Cherry Hollow. He finds a serious job, and a side hustle as a bartender, to start digging himself out of trouble.

 

Porter Eastwood was born into an influential, Cherry Hill family. He never missed out on anything money could buy. Entangled in the Eastwood family business, Porter is unhappy with his job, and if that isn’t enough to make him miserable, he’s a failed omega who has never been in heat.

 

When Porter finds himself infatuated with the new bartender at his favorite drinking spot, sparks fly, and they tumble their way into bed. Much to Porter’s surprise, it sends him into his very first heat. Brodie steps up to the challenge, the first man to make Porter feel truly cared for, but their amazing chemistry can’t stop reality from creeping in. Porter is still an Eastwood, and Brodie didn’t grow up on Cherry Hill.

 

Porter soon realizes he made a serious mistake during his heat, and a baby is on the way. Brodie’s day job has him delving into the seedier aspects of the Eastwood empire. With Brodie getting closer to finding out if the Eastwoods are involved in illegal activity, and Porter carefully counting down days until he might start to show, will they be able to make their relationship work?
