As you perhaps already know, I am a big fan of Sierra Dean’s Secret McQueen series (reviews can be found on my blog). I have read and enjoyed all the books and novellas in this series. I have read the fun and surprising novella in the Misfits and Mayhem series.
Sierra recently self published a Young Adult book, called Autumn. I have bought it from Smashwords, and am looking forward to reading it.
Autumn, the first book in the Dog Days series, published as ebook on June 11, 2013.
Cooper Reynolds's life is going to the dogs... literally.
As if being a high school senior in a small Texas town wasn't hard enough, Cooper has bigger things to worry about than who he'll take to prom and whether or not the Poisonfoot Padres will win homecoming. He has less than a year before his eighteenth birthday, when a curse placed on his family will doom him to live in coyote form forever.
The last thing he needs to complicate his already messed-up life is a girl, but fate has other plans in mind for him when it brings Eloise "Lou" Whittaker to Poisonfoot. She's grouchy, sarcastic and has no love for her new Texas home, but she might be exactly the right person to help Cooper break the curse.
The clock is ticking, and Cooper will have to decide if he's willing to let Lou in on his dirty little secret before it's too late.
On August 6 you will publish your first contemporary sports romance with Samhain. I have read and reviewed the ARC of Pitch Perfect, and I am still amazed that you made me love reading about baseball.
Aurian: Hi Sierra, can you please tell me and my readers what your plans are for the future? I know that Secret Unleashed will be published in October, and I can hardly wait for that. I ofcourse went to your website and discovered that you have already planned Cold Hard Secret for July 2014 and A Secret to die for, for December 2014, which is so very far away. But will that really be the end of the Secret series and world?
What are you working on at the moment, what have you finished that is not published yet, are there even more genres you want to try?
Sierra: Oh my goodness, the “What’s next?” question is always the biggest.
Now that I’m writing full time I feel like there’s so much more coming than I could talk about without seeming silly. I’ve been contracted already for the second Boys of Summer book, Perfect Catch, and have at least two more books in that series planned right now. Honestly, though, I like all the boys on that team so much I could easily see myself writing at least six of those books if people enjoy them.
I’m also branching out into less specific contemporary romance. Next March I have Chasing Kings coming out, which is a story about a small town book store owner who meets and falls for a porn star while she’s in Vegas. That one is a standalone story.
The last two Secret novels, Cold Hard Secret and A Secret to Die For ARE the end of the Secret Series, I’m sorry to say. There will be no final cliffhanger. Secret’s story will come to a (hopefully) satisfying conclusion. As for that WORLD, however, I’m not totally done with it. Following the conclusion of Secret’s series, I still have plans for two additional Misfits & Mayhem novellas, featuring characters from the series, and likely cameos from everyone’s favourite hybrid bounty hunter.
Additionally, I started a YA series this year called Dog Days. The first book, Autumn, is already out, and the second will be arriving in November. The final two books of that series will come out in Spring and Summer of 2014.
As for my 2014 writing schedule, I have two new contemporaries planned, another baseball book, a sci-fi romance, and much more on the horizon. There will be no shortage of new Sierra Dean novels in the coming future.
Aurian: That is great news Sierra, I am particularly looking forward to the sci-fi romance. The more books, the happier I am.
