Goodbye 2014! Hello 2015!

Wait...what? 2015!!!??? Really? I mean didn't I just do the 2014 post a few months ago.
Where does the time go?

Let's recap 2014 a bit...
I finished The Ice Series with the release of the final book: Shattering the Ice

It was bittersweet to end the series, but I'm glad that I did. 
Then Lindsay Paige and I finished our series The Penalty Kill Trilogy with the final book:
Game Winner 

Oh, Levi and Presley ... I do miss you both. 
Now, LP and I took a small break from writing and I published my ROCKER Romance
Always Forever

In June and July I spent with going to conventions and two of them with LP:

Then we were in TNVAE and even got tattoos

What's Happening, Mary?

Yep, I've been a bit busy here lately. I figured that I should give you all an update. I've been out of the loop because my nose has been stuck against my Kindle screen or writing on my laptop.

First let's update you on the books!!

I release A Hockey Tutor  on Oct 30, 2014 and didn't tell anyone but my two best friends.

A Hockey Tutor has a serious and lengthy back story that I don't want to get into, but I love the story and wanted to publish it. It took me awhile it click that button to send it on to be published, but I'm glad that I did.
Now, what about Lindsay Paige and my newest series, Oh Captain, My Captain. Well, let me update you.
The first three of the series is out and ready for you to read them.
Book 1:Looking for You (Oh Captain, My Captain Book 1)

Book 2:A Hockey Player's Proposal (Oh Captain, My Captain Book 2)

Book 3:Finding Carson Lee (Oh Captain, My Captain Book 3)

AND you can pre-order.......
Book 4: Let's Be Crazy (Oh Captain, My Cap…

Guess the Captain Contest ...........

There has been a lot of love for the Oh Captain, My Captain series that Lindsay Paige and I released last month.
Now, we are a few days away from the release of the second book: A Hockey Player's Proposal (oh Captain, My Captain #2)
Here is the blurb:
Brody Ross was one of the youngest captain in the hockey league. his one and only goal is to lift the Cup over his head. That is until he moved next door to Selene Porter. When he approaches her with a proposal, their friendship takes a turn. However, it comes at a price when an ex-flame appears in the picture. 
Selene Porter has two loves: her dog, Bonkers, and hockey. She’s been a lifelong fan of the Indiana Mustangs and their Captain. She refuses to let anything take away what means so much to her and Brody, his career, and his old fling has her wondering if love is worth the risk. 

With the unwanted presence, can Brody and Selene stick together or will Selene back out of the proposal?

Now, LP and I have been received SO MANY questions …

Hello, Hudson King ................

Many of you know that Lindsay Paige and I have started a new series. Now, the good thing about this series is that you don't have to read each book to know what's going to happen in the next. 
They all are standalone.
Now LP and I love muses ... A LOT ... for this series EACH BOOK ... yep each book has a different muse.

Please meet Hudson King (aka Nathan Gerbe of Carolina Hurricanes) 

Let me tell you a little bit about Gerbe. 
He played for Boston College. He was drafted by the Buffalo Sabres in 2005 and was traded to Carolina in 2013.
Here is the key that you need to know about Gerbe ... he is the SHORTEST player in the NHL. Gerbe is only 5'5'. 
Yep, that's it. 
However, that doesn't stop him from being one of the most respected in the NHL. He is constantly praised for his work ethic and determination to be the best. 
LP and I transferred that to Hudson King. 
So here is a little teaser for you ...

"This is my favorite thing about this place. I love to sit on the p…

BIG Announcement from Lindsay Paige and I ..............

Today, Lindsay Paige and I would like to share with you the first book in our new series and how the series will be released.

If you follow me or Lindsay Paige on Facebook, then you know that last month, we asked our fans to tell us how they wanted us to release the Oh Captain, My Captain series. 
 You told us. 
We listened. 

One book released every month for the first four books. Starting in October, we’re kicking off the start of a new hockey season with the start of our new series. In case you don’t remember, this will be an Adult Sports Romance series where each book is a standalone. The series will follow various captains in the NHL, who lead teams that we’ve created. Each captain gets one book, which can be read in any particular order. 

That said, let’s get to the first book, Looking for You.
Oh Captain, My Captain presents Hudson King of the Portland Vikings.

Hudson King loves his job and his family. His life is missing that someone special, and he’s ready to settle down. He …

The Rules of Co-Authoring and Why I Love Lindsay Paige

A while back a Facebook friend sent me a private message and asked how I liked co-authoring, I raved about it, because ... well ... I love it.
Flash forward to last week, when the same girl message me and told me a horror story between her and her friend (aka the co-author). They have since ended their friendship and had a third party publish the book, because they couldn't even handle the money.

It's sad to hear about that.
So that's what is why I'm doing this.
Let me tell you a story first ...
Lindsay Paige (aka LP) came into my life a while back when I read her book Sweetness . I reviewed it and started to Tweet her (or stalk her, whichever). Her love and passion for hockey is what brought us closer, and during the lockout of 2012-2013 made us almost best friends.
When I made the step into becoming an author, LP is one of the first people I told. She read  Melting Away the Ice she loved it. I'm not sure how much longer it was, but she sent me an email asking me to…
