Just a quick post this morning. First of all, I have a newish release out. I say newish because the book has been re-edited, some new material has been added as has a new title. Original published as “Hunter’s Home”, Prey is the third book in the Stalker’s Moon series. In a lot of ways, this is my favorite of the series, but more on that later.
Here’s the blurb:
They say you can never go home. That’s something CJ Reamer has long believed. So, when her father suddenly appears on her doorstep, demanding she return home to Montana to “do her duty”, she has other plans. Montana hasn’t been home for a long time, almost as long as Benjamin Franklin Reamer quit being her father. Dallas is now her home and it’s where her heart is. The only problem is her father doesn’t like taking “no” for an answer.
When her lover and mate is shot and she learns those responsible come from her birth pride and clan, CJ has no choice but to return to the home she left so long ago. At least she won’t be going alone. Clan alphas Matt and Finn Kincade aren’t about to take any risks where their friend is concerned. Nor is her mate, Rafe Walkinghorse, going to let her go without him.
Going home means digging up painful memories and family secrets. But will it also mean death – or worse – for CJ and her friends?
This book is different from the other books in the series because the main characters aren’t alphas. They aren’t the big bads that the rest of the pride fears–or should. But they have their own special abilities and prove they aren’t easy marks.
As I did the re-edits and sat down to add new material, I discovered something I hadn’t expected. I didn’t want to add as much to it as I had the other books in the series. Still, there were areas that needed more explanation or further action. My only regret is it took me so long to get around to doing it.
Right now, I’m busy working on the next book in the Honor & Duty series. It’s already gone through a couple of title changes and I think there will be one more. I’m having fun seeing what sort of trouble I can get Ashlyn and company into–and out of. This story arc is winding down, so there are a number of plot threads to be pulled and woven together. Thank heavnes for sticky notes, scratch paper, and apps that let me keep track of them.
Please don’t let me leave someone hanging off a cliff.
As we head into Thanksgiving, here’s hoping you all have a safe and joyous holiday.

Thanks, and the same to you.
It’s a fine line for some books – do you add/adjust/explain/modify this, that, and this other thing? Or will that take the shine off, even if it does make the book more-current/fit continuity better/eliminate that hanging plot thread/more consistent in tone with later books? I suspect it depends on the book, the author, and how long the book has been in the wild. And no three authors will agree on an answer!
Totally agree. I’ve only done it with these three and Vengeance from Ashes. With Vengeance, as the series went on, I knew there were things I needed to add to the first book to lay the cookie crumbs for what was to come. That’s what happens when you wind up with a series when you weren’t expecting it. As for these three books, the first two needed more than the last did. But with rebranding the series, I needed to rebrand this one as well. Shrug.
