Giveaway of my lesbian romance novel “Under a Falling Star”

Today’s an eventful day for me. Not only is my romantic suspense novel Conflict of Interest making a comeback as the #1 bestseller in the Amazon category “Gay & Lesbian Mystery,” but I also received my author copies of Under a Falling Star today. I have to say, I’m still in love with the great cover, including the back cover. The paperback is now available for readers too. Last but not least, I’m guest-blogging over at Women & Words today, talking about Under a Falling Star, my adventures in the US, and about coming full circle as a writer. We’re also …

Writing hours in October 2014

I’ve been waiting with bated breath for October, because that meant my newest lesbian romance, Under a Falling Star, would be published. It’s been out for just a few days now, and it’s already number 1 in the Kindle bestseller list for lesbian fiction and lesbian romance. So I’d say October was a really good month for me. I finished the translation of Conflict of Interest. The title of the German version is “Auf schmalem Grat,” which roughly translates to “a fine line.” My co-author Alison Grey and I are also making good progress on our vampire novella, Good Enough …

It’s October already; can you believe it? Here in Germany, summer is definitely over, even though we’re having a few sunny days here in the Southwest. As always, I’ve been keeping busy, and I’m already making writing plans for 2015.

Writing Hours in April 2014

It’s hard to believe that it’s May already–which means just one more month until I’m traveling to the US to do some research, meet friends I haven’t met in person yet, and go to the GCLS conference in Portland! April has been a pretty great month for me. Conflict of Interest has been published and is selling well. And now that I’m through with moving and furniture assembly, I thankfully have more time to write. I added 25,000 words to my new novella, Departure from the Script, which by now has grown into an (albeit short) novel. Departure from the …

Conflict of Interest has been published!

Conflict of Interest was the first novel-length work I ever wrote in English. The feedback I got from readers after the first edition was published encouraged me to keep writing and to keep writing in English. It’s a big part of what brought me to my current situation—living happily as a full-time writer—so this novel does forever hold a special place in my heart. I’m glad that the second, improved version of Conflict of Interest now found a new home with Ylva Publishing. My wonderful editor Nikki Busch and I worked hard to make this second edition a much cleaner, …
