Thursday Morning Ramblings

- My new book, an adult contemporary romance, is slated to release early January 2013, with a chance of it releasing earlier. It’s called Fated and if you liked Love Left Behind, it’ll be right up your alley. The hero, Caden Riley, is hot, but in a different way than Jackson Reynard. Plus, I really love the heroine, Lauren Sloan. I’ll post the cover and description and all that junk when it’s ready.

- I’m knee-deep in the third and final installment of the Shadow Series right now, and boy these waters are treacherous! My own heart has raced a few times, and that’s with me knowing what’s going to happen! I still don’t have an exact release date except early 2013, but I’m pushing, pushing, pushing to get it done as soon as possible.

- If you’ve read some of my posts here, you’ll realize that I’m obsessed with food. My latest obsession, after my trip to New Orleans, is trying to recreate the muffaletta. The one at Central Grocery was a doozy, and I’m up to my elbows in olive salad as I try to perfect my recipe to mimic theirs.

- Speaking about food, Thanksgiving is right around the corner! It’s my #1 favorite holiday. Turkey, cranberry sauce and stuffing…here I come!

    I just finished the Shadows Series and lets just say it had me on the edge of my seat. I was shocked at one in the morning to find out about Simon. OMG. I am enjoying the series but my favorite so fare is “love left behind” you are an awesome writer. I hope I can write well as you. You are becoming my favorite author.

  6. Scharme says:

    Totally in love with the Shadow Series. I continue to try to come up with an ending to the wonderful triology, and i know what I would LOVE to happen, but we will have to see. I am sure the waiting will be well worth it. I also loved Love Left Behind. Pretty much, Love all your books. Keep up the great work….

  7. SHKolee says:

    Esther – I’m so glad you enjoyed my books! Hopefully you’ll enjoy the rest! Thanks so much for your kind words!

    Scharme – Thanks so much! I’ll be interested to know if any of the things that you would like to happen actually happens after you read the third book. I better get crackin’ on getting it to you guys!

  8. Debbie Saville says:

    Sooooo excited, I cannot wait for this release!!!

  9. SHKolee says:

    Thanks Debbie! I can’t wait either! ;)

  10. Kellie says:

    How exciting…I can’t wait to read the new book I loved Love Left Behind. It had me staying up til the wee hours to finish. Can’t wait to read Fated. Maybe I should rest up now so I’m ready for another all-nighter!! :-)

  11. SHKolee says:

    Thanks Kellie! I love hearing that you stayed up late to finish it! I hope Fated makes you pull another all nighter (not that I don’t want you to get your beauty sleep ;) )!

  12. Suzi says:

    I am so happy to hear you have some new releases coming out! I read several books a week (it’s a great escape once my very rambunctious 9 month old goes to bed) and your books are some of my favorites. I’m not sure I can be tortured again after Love Left Behind…but perhaps I’ll have to give it a try with Fated. I’m passing your name around to my friends/family as I think you deserve the exposure. Keep the books coming :)

  13. SHKolee says:

    Thanks Suzi! I can imagine you need an escape with a 9 month old! Hopefully Fated won’t torture you as much as Love Left Behind! ;) Thanks so much for spreading the word!

  14. Clariza says:

    The third book of the Shadows series will be released early 2013? I’m going to interpret that as midnight of January 1. LOL

  15. SHKolee says:

    Heh…too funny Clariza! I wish that were true!!

  16. Katya says:

    Is there any chance of a second book after love left behind. I became completely obsessed with the characters and really dont want to let their story go!!! Ps: love from South Africa :)

  17. SHKolee says:

    Thanks Katya! A second book is possible. I’m going to seriously think about it after I’m done with my current project. Thanks so much for the interest. Love hearing that my book is being read in South Africa! ;)

  18. Tobi says:

    Glad to hear that things are progressing for Shadows! I can’t describe how on the edge of my seat it put me. I couldn’t stop thinking about it all week afterwards.

    I’m also pumped about your other new book. It’ll give me something to read while waiting. I’ve loved everything you’ve put out so far!!

    Glad you had a good trip to NO’s. As a Louisiana girl, I can completely understand the love of the food!! I hope you get to return during boiled crawfish season!!

  19. SHKolee says:

    Tobi – Thanks so much! I’m so glad you’ve enjoyed my books, and I hope you continue to do so! And that was one thing my New Orleans trip lacked – boiled crawfish! I’m a sucker for a good seafood boil, and need to go back during crawfish season! Thanks again!

  20. I am all for a second installment of Love Left Behind, can’t seemed to get enough of Jackson…

  21. SHKolee says:

    I’m so happy you loved Jackson as much as I did, Melody! Thanks for reading!

  22. Lindsey says:

    Lots of love for your characters! Can’t wait for a new installment in Shadow and I loved Left Behind! Just keep them coming so I can keep telling people to read them :)

  23. SHKolee says:

    Thanks, Lindsey! And thanks for spreading the word! :)

  24. Ashley-Elizabeth says:

    OMG! I started reading Love Left Behind one random Friday night in Office Depot…I was looking at a nook, and that was the book someone had downloaded…I rushed home to download it…I fell in-love, cried and smiled! The Climax of the book almost made me CRAZY. Awesome book/writing. I wish I could get an update on Emma and Jackson ;) Looking forward to Fated!

  25. SHKolee says:

    Ashley-Elizabeth: I love it! What a funny way to have discovered Love Left Behind! I gotta give thanks to the anonymous person who downloaded it onto the nook at Office Depot! I’m so happy you enjoyed the book. Thanks for reading!

  26. Kellie says:

    I absolutely loved Love Left Behind and have read it three times already, so I am anxious to read Fated! I am recommending Love Left Behind to my book club (dedicated to books like 50 Shades, Bared to You, etc) and I am sure they will love it as well. Would love to read more about Jackson and Emma if you decide to write more about them!!!

  27. SHKolee says:

    Kellie – Three times! I’m impressed! Thanks so much for spreading the word about Love Left Behind. I’m hopeful that you’ll like Fated as much as you liked LLB!

  28. Tania says:

    I absolutely loved Love Left Behind. I started reading it last night and stayed up until 5:00 am this morning to finish it! I gave it a 5 star rating and have already started to spread the word to my other friends. I feel emotionally spent. Both Jackson and Emma were amazing characters. Jackson was wonderful and even when he was depressed and stalker-ish you could feel his desperation for how much he loved her. I could relate to Emma and how she reacted to the events that happened to her. I get tired of the heroines that just do as they are told and don’t question anything. Even though the misunderstanding could have been resolved sooner, sometimes people are ruled by their emotions and just want to tell the world to piss off. Her trying to escape the restaurant unseen and not wanting to rehash their history in order to try and get past it are very realistic. Did I say I loved this book? Loved it! Can’t wait to read more of your books and more Jackson and Emma would be awesome :)

  29. SHKolee says:

    Thanks for your kinds words, Tania! I’m so happy you enjoyed it, but I hope you get to catch up on your sleep! :) Thanks so much for spreading the word. I’m so grateful to my readers who help get my books noticed! I’m glad you liked Jackson, and I totally get that the misunderstanding was frustrating. But you’re completely right that sometimes people are ruled by their emotions. There are so many instances in my own life where things could have been resolved so much quicker if I had just laid my cards on the table. I guess that’s why life can be so complicated sometimes! Okay, enough of my ramblings. Thanks again for reading the book!

  30. Clariza says:

    Hi! I was wondering, since Fated was released much earlier than the original date, is there a chance that the Shadows book #3 will also be released earlier? Thanks. :)

  31. SHKolee says:

    Hi Clariza! I’m in the middle of writing the third Shadow Series book, and it definitely won’t be released until 2013, although I don’t have an exact date yet. I’ll be sure to update when I have a more definite date! Thanks!

  32. Susanne says:

    OMG OMG OMG!!! I couldn’t believe that Simon and Caitlin was going to be over when there was 5 pages left – thank god for third book! And I love love love Jackson… And Emma:) The one true love, ahhh…:) (maybe a #2?) :)
    I just discovered you on iBooks two weeks ago, and I have already read all 4 books. You are an fantastic writer, and I have cried in their ache for their love, the one true love… The way you can feel the compassion, strong feelings, and desire – it’s amazing!:) it feels like you are their with them…
    Just want to say that you are amazing!:)
    Best regards Susanne from Copenhagen, Denmark:)

  33. SHKolee says:

    Susanne – I’m so happy that you’ve enjoyed my books! Thanks so much for your kind words. I love hearing that you felt emotions along with the characters while reading…it doesn’t get much better than that. Thanks again!

  34. Jaclyn says:

    I absolutely love the Shadows Series!!! I gasped so many times my husband had to finally ask me what I was reading. He’s got so into the story I have to tell him what’s going on chapter by chapter. Can’t wait for the next book.. We’re both anticipating what’ll happen next!!

  35. SHKolee says:

    That’s too funny about your husband, Jaclyn! Thanks so much for reading them! I’m so happy you’re enjoying them!
