I’m Still Writing – Update and a wee teaser

Hi there,

I know, my poor blog has been neglected again, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been busy behind the scenes. As some of you know, I’ve had some health issues lately brought on by some stressful real life events; nothing major, but enough to make it difficult for me to function some days. I am fine now, but taking things a lot slower and indulging in my passion which is writing my stories.

My to-do list is huge. I have books due on every series I have going, and there are a lot of them. Many people ask when my next “such and such” book is coming out and for the most part, all I can say is “soon”. I love that I am asked because it means my wonderful readers are excited to see the next installment in a series – I only wish I could give a more definitive answer. There are characters from eight books vying for space in my brain at the moment and although I know I would get to them a lot faster if I wrote two at the same time as I have in the past, my health just won’t allow that. So I am focusing on crafting one at a time, and trying to make that story the best darn one I can.

So what is it?  Which book am I writing now? Poseidon’s story, which will be book 2 in the Gods Made Me Do It series. From those of you who read On The Brink (Cloverleah book 10) you will remember Poseidon as Nereus’s father, who basically had sex on the brain. A number of people asked if I was writing his story – they wanted to see him with a mate, and I am delivering.  You’ve Got To Be Kidding Me will be out around the middle of June and here’s a small teaser  🙂

My inspirational pic for Poseidon

Excerpt (unedited)

“Clotho, Lachesis, Atropos, stop screwing me about. I demand an audience,” Poseidon yelled as he stumbled over yet another log.

“You don’t have the right to demand anything of us.” Clotho appeared beside him, making him jump. Regaining his composure, Poseidon peered through the murky undergrowth. The sisters were always together. Sure enough, he spied Lachesis lurking up a nearby tree and Atropos appeared complete with a cauldron in front of him. A tingle of alarm ran up his spine. That cauldron could spell trouble.

“Ladies,” he said, spreading his hands. He’d put on the charm he was famous for. It worked for everyone else. “We seem to have a little problem. Somehow my life thread got caught up with that of a land creature. If I could prevail on you to just snip me free, I’d owe you a favor.”

“We don’t need any favors from you,” Atropos cackled. “In fact, I feel sorry for the poor Alpha who has to cope with your sorry ass for all eternity.”

“This wasn’t a mistake?” Poseidon’s anger burned and he forgot his earlier caution. “You deliberately set me up with a wolf shifter, despite knowing I’m the lord of the sea? How could you be so stupid? Do you know what happens when wolf shifters claim their mates? My cock won’t work for anyone else but him!”

“Then I suggest you stick close to him,” Lachesis jumped from the tree, peering into Atropos’s cauldron. “More nutmeg,” she suggested.

“You can’t do this to me,” Poseidon roared, his voice echoing around the glade like thunder. “I am a god. Men fall to the ground when they hear my name. I refuse to take a mate. You can’t force me.”

“From what we saw, there wasn’t any force involved,” Clotho laughed prettily, stepping over to join her sisters. “In fact, I got the impression you had a really good time.”

End excerpt – have a lovely weekend 🙂

  9. Karen

    An Alpha mate?! Oh, this is going to be good. Poseidon will finally get what his horny ass has coming to him. 🤣😂🤣😂

    Hi Lisa, so sorry to read about your health issues and glad that you now realise that taking things slower is not only a necessity but such a sensible decision. With so much going on, we can forget about looking after ourselves and if we don’t do that, how are we going to look after others when they need us?
    Poseidon’s book looks wonderful and I’m looking forward to reading it (when it’s ready), don’t let things get on top of you and feel pressured to get a book out, remember that good things are worth waiting for and your readers will wait in anticipation to reading it.

  13. Kim Bytheway

    Take your time and make sure you are felling good then go back to writing with renewed vigour as they say. Your fans will wait.

    I can’t wait to read this book!!! I love the Gods Made Me Do It series 😁 I imagined Poseidon with a meek mate, someone he’d have to look after, but the fact that he’s got an alpha for a mate is going to be brilliant! And if it’s the alpha I think it is, Poseidon’s gonna be classed as the one ‘meek’ one in their relationship 😂

  15. Susan

    OMG so looking foreward to this.

  16. Xanthe Anderson

    Haha this is gonna be so very interesting, God of the oceans/man-whore and a wolf Alpha……mmmmmm lols 🙂
