November is traditionally NaNoWriMo month. This is when aspiring novelists from all over the world set the goal to write 50,000 words, or one novel, in a month.
Lots of established writers jump on the bandwagon too, and why not? Personally, I've found the supportive and encouraging atmosphere great for pushing me to finish my books for deadlines. This year, I will be writing Wicked Games for Entangled publishing. This will be part of a multi-author series coming out in late 2017. If you want to follow me or watch my progress, you can friend me on the NaNoWriMo site here.
I also have a lot of releases coming up this month. The first is Pursued by the Player, the third book in the Black Towers series. This is a series I wrote with Lauren Hawkeye and we both came up with the idea over drinks at a convention. We don't have buy links just yet, but if you check in after November 7th, you can find them here. Here's a little more about the book:
No more athletes for Melody Lerner. Nope. Sweaty, testosterone-riddled men whose idea of “long-term” means spending the night are officially off the menu. It’s time to focus on her fashion design career—and her boss’s get-rich-quick scheme. Fairy tales just don’t happen for women like her.
Wealth and celebrity pretty much guarantee Jett Gorski’s every whim—which is why the pro ballplayer is stunned when a reluctant beauty takes him for a wild ride then runs away. Literally. Jett’s been a long-time player in more ways than one, but Melody could turn him into a one-woman man…if their newfound connection can survive an unexpected betrayal.
The second book is a multi-author boxed set comes out November 15th, but you can preorder it now. If you like paranormal stories with a holiday theme, then this one is for you. You can read more about it or preorder it here, or just check out the video below!

Finally, I have the third book in my Immortal Hungers series releasing on the 17th. Unholy Desires follows Samir, a vigilante bad-boy introduced in Unholy Cravings. You can read more about the series here, and preorder the book here.
As you can see, November is the month for wrapping up storylines. I'm bringing things to a good resting place in some of my ongoing series so I can start fresh with new ideas in 2017. So how about all of you? Is anyone participating in NaNoWriMo? What series are you hoping to hear more of in 2017? Tell me in the comments section. I want to know!
