Thank you again to everyone who has left reviews on the Taken series! All of them have been immensely helpful as I move forward with the Black Oak Shifter Series. Of course it is nice to read the glowing reviews. Those are wonderful to see after an 11 hour work day when all I want to do is sleep instead of write. The critical ones help too though. Some reviewers have pointed out that there are errors in the Taken series. This is likely because I sent those manuscripts out at the very last second and rushed through the edits in the hours before releasing. Mistake!
I’m currently working with a new editor and newly edited versions of all three stories will be up over Memorial Day weekend. So if you got copies already, you’ll be able to download the updated ones after the holiday. This time around with Captured, I’m sending the manuscript off earlier so neither I nor the editor is rushed.
Things got a little crazy at my day job at the beginning of the month so I had a hard time picking a release date for the new Black Oak Shifter series. I finally decided this weekend that May 22 is the date!!! I also finally picked a name and its….Captured by the Shifters. I can’t wait to share the story of Amina Blake with you guys.
I would also like to take a minute to thank everyone who has left a review for the Taken Series. Even if the review is not so great, they all help me to make the Black Oak Series better. Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback!!
Taken by the Shifters is finished…but this won’t be the last we see of Luke and Elle. At the end of the month, a new series will start. This one will be released once a month over the summer and each entry will be a little longer than Taken at around 100 pages. I think I have a title for this one finally but I’ll share when I feel positive I love it. Right now, I”m just going to file this one under the title of the entire series, Black Oak Shifters. Here’s a quick summery of the first book in the summer series:
Wannabe journalist Amina Blake just got the lead on the story of a lifetime. While attending a family friend’s wedding, she learns about a mysterious town in the woods. Rumor has it the town is for shifters only.
Amina is determined to make her way to the town and expose all of its secrets. She’s sure this will rocket her career into the stratosphere.
What Amina didn’t count on was the hot best man from the wedding being the town’s deputy sheriff. And that’s only the beginning of her troubles.
If you’ve read the Taken series you’ll be able to guess the hero of the new series. However, you could totally start with this series and come back to read Taken later. Or never if you’re not interested in Elle and Luke’s story. The Black Oak Shifter series can be read in any order. It’s better if you do read them in order though, as there is an underlying story that unfolds across the books.
As always, if you want to be notified when the book is released early you can sign up to my mailing list.
It’s here! Taken: Part Three is available on Amazon, Google Play, and Kobo. Unfortunately, it won’t be available for Nook until Tuesday, April 29 and iTunes on Thursday, May 1. I am so sorry for the wait! iTunes takes longer than I expected to upload. NookPress is down and I won’t be able to get the final part of the story up until Tuesday. I’ll edit this post and put the links here as soon as they become available.
I wanted to take a minute to thank everyone who has picked up Taken by the Shifters: Part One. I am beyond thrilled that anyone is interested in reading my story. I thought that maybe a dozen or so people would download a copy before the month was up but it has wildly exceeded my expectations. My little story that I wanted to throw away has managed to make it to the top 20 Free for its category on Amazon and is in the top 1000 free on the whole site. For a new author that is just amazing. So again Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
Taken by the Shifters: Part Two is now available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, iTunes, and Kobo. There’s only one more part left in Elle and Luke’s story. Part three will be released on April 27. After that, The Sponsor 2 will release on May 18.
Stay tuned for the announcement of my next release after Sponsor 2. It’s going to be a fun serial for summer. I know I love fast and fun reads I can relax on the beach or on my porch with in summer. Y’all are going to be pleasantly surprised when I tell you all the details. Hint: it may be a story about another Black Oak Springs Shifter.

I’m just finishing up edits on part two…which means it will likely be available for purchase sometime this weekend. That’s a little earlier than the release date I set but shhh. Working on part three is hard! I’m going to wrap up the story in part three for sure but there’s so much I want to add to their story. It looks like part three will be available April 27.

Edit: Taken by the Shifters: Part Two is available now!!!
The new serial is live on Kindle! Here’s the link at Amazon.
For Elle Quinn, meeting tall, dark, and handsome Lucas Rivers at the farmer’s market is just what she needs. This strong, dominate man knows just how to handle all of her curves. Much to her delight, they can’t keep their hands off each other.
Too bad for Elle, her pleasure is cut short when a mysterious stranger whisks her away through the woods. Their destination will shock Elle and send her down a dark path of self-discovery.
Taken by the Shifters is a 16,000 word BBW/Shifter Romance. It is the first entry in the Taken Series, chronicling Elle Quinn’s search for love and the truth about her past. The series will contain explicit descriptions of sexual matter and is intended for mature audiences over the age of 18.
I made made the cover for the series using both stock and Creative Commons pictures that were altered. The wolf shot is from Santiago Atienza. Here’s the license.
A shiny new idea took hold this week while I was working on the sequel to the Sponsor. Well, it’s not really a new idea. I had an old WIP sitting on my computer. I was going to delete since I didn’t think I would ever release it. Reading over it, I decided that I may as well publish it. I already have most of three novellas done and it will only take me a week or two to tie the series up. I’ll be releasing them at two week intervals for the rest of April. I hope you guys enjoy the surprise series!
