I've been hard at work on The Final Hour, and I'm nearly half way finished with the first draft. (Which is awesome of course). But that hasn't been my only focus. I've also been working on The Kingmaker, and as you can see if you've been on my website lately, it went from being a series to a standalone. I felt it would be better as a standalone, but it's going to be LONG, but worth it though.

   Right now, the release is scheduled for March of 2015, and that's still the case, but it will definitely be worth the wait.

   Updates on the rest of the Volkov Bratva Series.

   Luka and Alex's story will definitely be next, though I'm still trying to work out the kinks of their relationship in my head, trying to transfer those ideas to paper. Luka is one of my favorite characters, but his crazy comes with baggage and I'm almost afraid to delve into that.

   Klaus and Reagan's story will be after Luka's. I've mentioned previously that I would be including The Last Volkov in his book, and that's still the case. That means, the first part of the book will be The Last Volkov--since it tells Klaus' background. Right now, his book may be the longest in the entire series since I want him to be understood. Like that saying, 'to understand who I am, you have to know where I've been.'

   Both of those are set to release in late fall, and will more than likely be back to back. October/November. Something like that. Of course I'll provide more details once the releases are closer.

If you ever have any questions, feel free to drop a comment, or send me a message on my author page.

The Kingmaker

    Last night I started on the first book in The Kingmaker series. (This does not affect The Final Hour at all. I'm still hard at work on that).
    I had no intention of even touching the series until after I was completely done with the Volkov Bratva Series, but as I was trying to force myself to keep writing on The Final Hour, I realized that if I wanted to keep with the original image I had for the book, I needed to take a step back and give myself a break from it.
    Since April 1st of last year, Mishca and Lauren's world have been all I've worked on. I've spent countless hours doing research on the inner workings of the Vory v Zakone, figuring out who my characters were, and pretty much plotted out every single detail that needed to be added into the books. Now, I kind of just need a break.
    It won't be for long, maybe for a few days tops since I can never leave M&L alone for too long.


    The Kingmaker.
    I've had the idea for this storyline for a while now, and I'm definitely excited to see where this goes. I don't want to reveal too much, only that the characters names are Uilleam (pronounced you'll--lee-em) and Karina. It's set in Chicago, one of the largest organized crime capitals in the world.
    Should be fun, right?
    Currently, I have three planned, you can see the titles here, and I guess you could say they end in a cliffhanger. (Sorry, I know how some people hate those). But I think it's entirely worth it. I always do
