WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON RIGHT NOW?
At the moment, I’m working on a couple of projects close to my heart. First up is the next book in the Violent Kingdom series (formerly called the California Blood series), which is slated to release ASAP. Check out THIS POST where you can read all about the rebrand / new titles in this series.
The other project I’m working on right now is a CRAZY, DARK & TWISTED HIGH SCHOOL ROMANCE SERIES. Let me be clear: This is ABOUT high school students, but it is not FOR high school students to read. Oh, no. This is strictly 18+. Think Gypsy Brothers and Cruel Intentions had a very evil, very attractive baby, and it grew up to be the Regina George of Valmont Preparatory Academy. That’s right, we’ve made sure to pay homage to the OG Sebastian Valmont in naming the exclusive school our series is set within.
As far as the FEEL of the series? Think The Vampire Diaries without the supernatural elements. Think Cruel Intentions with less pseudo-incest between step-siblings, and more yachts. Think Pretty Little Liars with more blood. Think Veronica Mars with less super-sleuthing, and more sex. Think Taken, without Liam Neeson to save the damsel in distress (hint: she’s going to have to save herself).
The first book in the series is called CRUEL BEGINNINGS, and you can read more about it HERE. You may notice that I have a co-writer on this project! Amelia and I have spent many nights up late, drinking too much wine and one-upping each other on how far we could push this genre without being blacklisted from the Amazon store. I think you’ll like what we have in store for you ; )
WILL YOU WRITE MORE BOOKS IN THE GYPSY BROTHERS SERIES?
I loved writing Juliette and Jase - their story was the one that brought Lili into the minds of hundreds of thousands of readers across the world, and made my dream of writing full-time come true. The Gypsy Brothers series will forever hold a special place in my heart. I’ve spent a lot of time and written a lot of words in their world - and while I may revisit them one day, I have many other stories that are screaming at me to be written first.
WILL YOU WRITE MORE BOOKS IN THE CARTEL SERIES?
I’ll certainly be revisiting the world of the Skulls Cartel and the Il Sangue Cartel. Because most of my books take place in the same fictional universe (the“Liliverse”), they have to be written in a certain order. Once I’ve finished writing Rome Montague and Avery Capulet, I can return to Mariana, Luis, Lindsay and Adelita. Look out for QUEENPIN, THE PROSPECT and more Skulls Cartel books in 2020.
WILL YOU EVER RELEASE THE SECOND BOOK IN THE VAMPIRELAND SERIES?
YES! I absolutely will. In the meantime, I’ve started releasing a chapter each week of THE VESSEL (Vampireland #2) on Radish. You can read the first three chapters on the app right now.
WHERE IS ELLIOT’S BOOK?
I was a little premature announcing Elliot McRae’s standalone book a while back. Once I realized where his story arc was going, I decided he needed to appear in the VIOLENT KINGDOM books (formerly VERONA BLOOD and the subsequent books in that series) before it made sense to write his standalone. I will still absolutely release that one day, as soon as possible :)
