I just released the cover for book 3 today! I'm ecstatic from all the stellar feedback I've received from it. My cover designer, Olivia, did a wonderful job. I couldn't be more pleased with how it turned out! Escape from Abundance will premiere on June 8th! Stay tuned for the pre-order links in the coming weeks.
Here's my latest teaser for Escape:
Man... Jack and Natalie just have that sizzling connection!
This month marks a much needed vacation for me. I will be unplugged for an entire week and I can't wait, not that I don't love what I do, but I'm looking forward to my own escape from my busy, crazy life! LOL!
May is going to be a busy month getting Escape ready for its debut along with several graduations. But Summer looks promising with the release of book 3, a steamy southern book promo coming next month, and a book signing/talk at my local library in July.
Stay tuned! I'll update you soon ;-)
Until next time, Happy Reading...and writing for those that do :-)

This month is full of big and exciting things, and I'm looking forward to continuing to get my name and books out there in the public eye as well as online.

I've finished the prequel to Abundance. It will be titled Starlight Valley, and I'm in the process of getting the cover designed. I will keep you posted on the release date and where to look for it. Book 3 is being editing too, and I'm looking to release it in the summer.

I was struck with the brilliant idea (not like I don't have enough on my plate) on Friday that I should do a prequel to Abundance, sort of an "intro to Abundance- where it all began" kinda deal. I've also been editing book 3, working on book 4 and reviewing other indie author books. Check out my latest blog post on Blood Drops for a creepy read here- review-of-blood-drops-by-wb-welch.html
