I'm 45,000 words in, and it's going swimmingly. The Girl in the Leather Jacket 2 (TGLJ-2), entitled, Iluminatus, will focus on Lola Fox's new coven and how they gain and use their powers.

The opening scene has the group heading for Bel Air to liberate Andy's mother, but a redheaded Vamp (Lola later refers to her as RedRude) swoops in and snatches Andy out of her Ghia and they struggle to free Andy out of the redheaded vamp's talons.

Lola understands that they're not yet ready to confront dangers of that scale. If they can't even best a regular vampire, how were they going to face the powerful Ridleys? So she postpones the rescue mission in order to help train her rag-tag group of witchy-dudes, initiates Andy into their Coven, and then goes and does a little investigation into who's behind wanting them destroyed.

As I've mentioned above, the story is basically writing itself and it will be ready and published by the end of this month! I'm so excited! So be on the lookout for TGLJ 2, due out the end of January 2015!

Revised book cover for Illuminatus and its release date

I've revised the book cover for "Illuminatus" as you can see in the banner above. You can have a good look at it by clicking the third dot at the bottom of the banner.

I've also designed the book covers for the last two books to The Girl in the Leather Jacket series. When I was redesigning the book cover for Illuminatus, I felt creative all of a sudden and decided to design the book covers for the last two books, as well. Since I know what the books are going to be about (duh - I'm the author), I was able to visualize how I wanted my book covers to look and - voila!

As you can see on the release dates posted on the book cover images in the banner, I finally decided to announce concrete release dates for each book, too. I figured, you've been patient enough, waiting for the next installment after the first book, so it's the least I can do.

I would like to have the last book published by February July 2015 at the latest. But with holidays and all that, well, I can't give a definitive month when it will be finished. Good thing all books can stand alone even though it is a series. Anyway, I figured it was high time I posted something on this blog so, here it is!

If you haven't already, why not follow me via e-mail? Why, you ask? Well, for one (and it's a biggie) I would deeply appreciate it. Two . . . you'll automatically get updates in your Inbox when I post something new. As you can see, I don't post that much so your Inbox won't overflow with e-mails from me, but you will get a head's up when the upcoming books are about to be released.
Sounds good? Well, sign up!
