Nicole's Weekly Update #5

As I sit here on Sunday, off and running on a new project (a new series that I'm super excited about), I've been reflecting back on the past week, wondering where in the world the time went.

Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday were spent working (my full time job) while Thursday I spent cooking and enjoying the day with my family. Friday while my husband had to work, I spent a good fifteen hours writing. I know, crazy, huh? But it was thrilling for me. Saturday I spent most of the day writing, sending the hubby to conquer the grocery store all by himself while I selfishly used several hours to write some more. Saturday night, I spent some time with two of our best friends, laughing, joking, and having a good time (I miss spending time with them). And Sunday - today - I've once again been writing along with my dedicated Sunday afternoon nap.

So as I sit here now, taking a break from my latest project, I find myself nervous about venturing down this new path and wondering what my readers will think. I've been blessed with the Club Destiny series and the outpouring of support and love from readers everywhere. It's amazing and humbling all at the same time. I still can't believe it's real. While I'm still working on additional books in the Club Destiny series - Seduction is complete and off to editing (read an excerpt if you haven't yet); Dylan's got a story to tell, but I'm not there yet; and Kane and Lucie wanted me to share their story -  my mind has recently conjured up a slew of hot alpha males who've struck my fancy. (Seriously... HOT!) So look for some excerpts soon from the new series.

Then I start to think about what the near future will bring. We've got more holidays coming up that I'm looking forward to with my family and friends. I'll be stealing as many hours every day to work on my books, doing what I love and counting down the days until I can venture down this great new path on a full time basis!

Hope you have a phenomenal week, recover from the few days off (hopefully everyone had a couple at least) and any of the crazy Black Friday shopping that you dared to do.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I just wanted to take a moment and give my thanks to my friends, family, fans and readers. This is the time when we sit back and reflect on all of the blessings that we have in our lives and I for one have many.

 The support I have received from my friends and family is unprecedented and I wouldn't be where I am today if it weren't for each and every one of them.

The overwhelming response to my writing has humbled me in ways you can only imagine. With each review, email, Facebook post, Twitter response, blog comment, (you get the idea) I find myself walking on a cloud. With each one of them, it's like the first time and a you can't wipe the smile from my face at that moment.

So, I want to say thank you! 

May each and every one of you enjoy time with your families and those closest to you, over the Thanksgiving holiday.

And for those of you who are brave enough to venture out into the wild known as Black Friday, I wish you luck in finding exactly what you're looking for. I won't be there with you because I'm just not that brave!

Many thanks,
~ Nic ~

Nicole's Weekly Update #4

I've spent the better part of the weekend writing Alex and Ashleigh's story as it plays out before me. Those two have it bad for one another, let me tell you.

While I've been doing that, I've been thinking about the rest of the Club Destiny members, wondering what they're doing. I'm thinking Sierra, Luke and Cole might need to make a reappearance, but nothing has come to me yet. Maybe they need a novella of their own... I'll keep you posted on that one. But I can tell you that Lucie and Kane are making a little progress - a novella for the sparks between those to is inevitable.

On an entirely different note, I want to say Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you have the chance to spend a day with the ones you love, remembering all of the gifts we've each been blessed with - family. This year has been a life changer for me and I have my family (and my beloved readers) to thank for their support and love - I could never do it without them.

Nicole's Weekly Update #3

As I sit here today, writing, I'm wondering exactly what made me choose November 20th as the release date for Temptation. Why so long? Why not sooner? When I was unable to answer that question with something legitimate, I thought... well, if it's up to me, why don't we do this now. Or rather, Tuesday, November 13th? That seems like a perfectly solid date to me.

With that said...

Get ready! Temptation will be released on Tuesday, November 13th (being that it's already been submitted to Amazon, you might even be able to get it even sooner than that).
