What if… From The Other Side of the World

What if…

Such beautiful words when used in the dreamworld. They make the magical, the impossible, the reach-for-the-stars ideas seem close enough to touch.

And yet, they are. Touchable.
We just have to bridge the gap between fantasy and reality.

It’s what an author does. In our heads, characters come to vivid life, face insurmountable obstacles, and go on grand adventures…all in the creator’s world of what if.

How has what if impacted us (Kat & Stone) in our real lives?

Well…

If you haven’t heard from us in a couple of months, it’s because we’ve taken a short hiatus from writing to make a two-decade what if of ours a reality.

We moved to the other side of the world. Got on a plane with two checked bags and two carryons apiece (laptops in tow, of course) and traveled across the ocean to reside for the rest of our days on a different continent. Simplified. Free.

Want a hint of where we’ve landed?

{whispers}
It’s one of the handful of locales mentioned in Rule Breaker 😀

But…
Where does that leave us on the writing front?

More Time? More Books…

A Foray into Nonfiction

One of the reasons we shucked nearly all of our material possessions and our former lives is those anchors weighed us down with time-sucks. Our new life still requires us to earn a living, but we have less living to support…and more time to do the living. A life rooted in minimalism.

The journey has been enlightening, is still ongoing, and is one we’ve begun documenting in our first upcoming nonfiction book, The Zenful Life.

Two Upcoming 2017 Romance Novels

Our greatest joy? Writing those adventuresome romance stories inspired in the land of what if.

We’re also diving back in to two of our favorite series this year. Lawbreaker is coming soon, the third standalone romance in our Unbreakable series. Shortly after that, will come the long-awaited third book in the Highland Legends series, Born of Mist and Legend.

We look forward to sharing more of our stories with you, forged from the amazing world of what if

What are your what ifs...?

Upcoming Release Announcement…

Today is the day we’ve been teasing you about for months.

As we head toward copy edits, we wanted to introduce you to our upcoming release.

And the title is…

{drumroll}

The Espionage Effect

Release Date: July 14th, 2015

Genre: Romantic Suspense / Action-Adventure Romance /
Erotic Romance (sensual, explicit, sexual awakening)

This is a standalone full-length novel. 

Description:

When desire sets you free…control is a matter of perception.

I’m Devin Hill.

Darkness taints my soul.

I’m suffocating. Drowning.

The sweet promise of air? Pure illusion.

Tested as a genius at age seven, I hide my emotions, become what they expect…bury my secrets. At nineteen, I trudge toward a predestined path, blinders on, heart safeguarded.

Until I dare to be wild.

Until Alec Marquez crashes into my world.

Until all that follows redefines everything I’ve ever known.

What happens when you stumble into a world of spies…and discover you belong there?

Do you like romance a little more erotic, edgy, darker, filled with action adventure, toned with mystery, complete with a twist…or two?

If so…

Sarah Hansen at Okay Creations is currently designing the cover. Stay tuned for the cover reveal in June through InkSlinger PR and save the date for The Espionage Effect this July 14, 2015!
