Mystery novel update: I thought it was going to be a novella...how little did I know. Yes, it's looking like a full novel. I'm already 10k into the draft, and I have all the major plot points worked out.

This is going to be Controllers book 0.

I always wanted to take a step back and look at Lilly's world while she was at the research center working with Erison Tsing.

The story follows the life of Verity, a young girl put through the Omega program under Lilly's care.

It's weird, but books sometimes just choose their own mood, and this book has a very definite mood that's a little different from my later books in the series. I normally have at least a smidgen of humor in there, but this is dark and unrelenting in the darkness.

It's also going to be less about an Omega with an Alpha, and more about Verity's journey to becoming an Omega, what it's like within the Omega community, and her sexual awakening there.


She does meet an Alpha, but I'm feeling like that may be after the halfway mark. He's much older than her. I've already written one scene for when they're together, and it's very, very intense. 🔥 Maybe it's after writing Hudson's book (he's kind of brutal), I felt like I wanted an Alpha who would be more adoring of his Omega while still being completely twisted and ruthless where the bedroom action is concerned.

Verity also has a strong voice and presence as a character. And the Alpha I've given her feels like he's delivering exactly what she needs after all she's been through.

I'm really enjoying this book!

Absolute Control is the 7th Book in the controller series.

Timeline wise, it follows on from Book 6 in the series, although this is the second book dedicated to Hudson and Anna.


In this book, we will see the introduction of a male Omega. We met Eli right at the start of

Book 2, as he was the Omega who healed Anna after the Uncorrupted attack.

It's always a delicate task adding a new character to an existing relationship. Most books with a menage aspect are clear right from the start, and the reader knows what they are getting. In this case, I'm adding a new character to an established relationship. I was very conscious of giving him a story of his own and making sure his inclusion was believable and done with sensitivity to the existing couple.


Did I get it right? I'll let you decided :)


I've really enjoyed writing Eli and getting to know him. I'm hoping Hudson and Anna fans will come to love him as much as I do!


When will it be released?

Sometimes when I get into self-editing, I find myself going over and over the work until I'm happy. That didn't happen this time, which I'm hoping means the story is in pretty good shape, and I can release it soon.

It will be going out to Beta readers imminently. As soon as I get feedback, I'll work out a release date.


 

I've started on a surprise...

I know I have other stuff to get on with, but sometimes an idea calls to me. I don't think it will be more than a short novella (yes, I know I've said that before). I wrote the scene for this a little while ago, but the title came to me a few days ago, and I'm feeling inspired.

Inspired writing is usually good writing, so I'm going to just run with it.

This is again in the Controller universe, and centers around a muted Omega being allocated to an Alpha...

Completing the Deviant Trilogy was much harder than I expected. It's a lot of threads to hold onto across three books, and that's without considering the wider story in which all five books interlink.

When I finished Deviant Betrayal, I promised myself that I would write a short, simple novella for Lucian and his Pet, aka Ruthless Control. I'm 3/4 of the way into the draft, and it's wrapping up to be a full novel!

For the record, Lucian is a bad, bad man...

As always happens in these books, we will get a peek at our old characters, and more insights into those we have yet to fully meet. I already know I want to tackle Abby and the two Deltas, Jordan and Kade, next. But a few other interesting characters have also arrived that I am itching to explore.

I'm aiming to have Ruthless Control out before the end of the year.

I have also been working on several other novels, including a dystopian, a rom-com, and a lighter Sci-Fi romance that is heavy on the action!

Looking forward to sharing with you as they develop.
