# Monday Musings # Post

Dreaming of Cowboys, Vacations, and Secret Projects

On the first Monday of each month I gab about what's going on with me, my writing, and life in general.


April 1 was April Fools' Day, and it also marked another special day for me on the calendar. Disarming Cowboys, Book 7 of the Lone Wolves of Shay Falls, rode off to the sunset, into the hands of my publisher for approval. Those sexy werewolf cowboys have been a big part of my writing for seven years, and it's been quite a ride. 


I take my yearly vacation in July, not April, but this is the month I begin hoping, and dreaming, and planning, and yeah. My husband, an author as well as a costumer and prop maker for the cosplay community, heads to San Diego Comic Con each July. Me, I avoid those teeming convention crowds and stay home with my daughter for a low-key, mother-daughter vacay. This year, I'm planning a surprise for her--a beachfront hotel stay. She loves the beach and will be so thrilled! I want a room with a view, the ability to hear the ocean at night, and preferably, free parking (all for a reasonable fee, of course. I'm a travel tyrant.) Already I've found myself daydreaming about sitting out on an open patio, writing my next book with salt spray in the air and a magnificent sunset ahead. sigh.

Secret Projects

I could tell you ALL about some sooper sekrit projects, but yeah. Secret. I can tell you a few little tidbits...

*I've split off my ultra-hot erotica into another pen name. Don't worry, I'll still be writing smokin' erotic romance as J. Rose. But the extra-xxx stuff, focusing on short stories, will be written separately to streamline reader experience.

*Surprise releases! Warning: books may drop without, er, warning! No more seeing a shiny book cover and a steamy premise, only to discover there's no BUY NOW button because the title isn't out yet and may not be for weeks/months. Get your reading fix right away with surprise releases!

*Birthday club is returning! July's not only my vacation month, but my birthday month too...and I'll be launching my Birthday Club 2.0 to celebrate! Right now, I'm busy preparing a special gift for club members.

On select Mondays, I like to gab about whatever's going on with me. For more gab, please join me on Twitter or Facebook. I love talking to people!

J. Rose Allister is the author of more than twenty-five books, primarily romance and erotic romance. A former editor and submissions director, she now works as a mild-mannered hospital secretary by day, naughty writer by night.
