Who’s ready for Christmas?! Whatever holiday your family celebrates, whether it’s Christmas, Hanukkah, or another tradition, I’ll wager there’s never enough time to prepare! Should I skip Christmas and head for the Caribbean? Nah, my kids won’t let me get away with that. So, it’s off to brave the crowds I go!
As always, it’s been a busy past few months for me! I’ve been behind the keyboard pounding out stories, which is my favorite place to be most of the time. I did manage to take a dream vacation with my family to Scotland at the end of May for three whole weeks! It was the trip of a lifetime, and just what I needed to recharge my batteries. I also got some great ideas for a new paranormal series, took notes and lots of pictures. If you’ve never been to Scotland, I highly recommend it. It’s so beautiful and lush with history, I never wanted to come home.
In book/writing news, IN HIS SIGHTS, penned by my alter-ego Jo Davis, is available now! Detective Chris Ford finally gets his story, and I couldn’t be more excited! Chris has been very sick for some time, and the illness never seems to really go away. It’s going to take sexy, savvy Dr. Robyn Lassiter to help him unravel the mystery before it’s too late… IN HIS SIGHTS is getting great reviews, and has been chosen as a Night Owl Reviews Top Pick and a Joyfully Reviewed Recommended Read! Click on the links to read the reviews. I hope you love Chris as much as I do!
I’ve also finished and turned in ON THE RUN, Sugarland #4, which is Detective Tonio Salvatore’s story. Station Five fans, you’ll remember that Tonio is the brother of firefighter Julian Salvatore who recently moved to Sugarland. Tonio is very different from Julian in personality, but is very much a big, muscled, tough specimen of a man. His story will be released April 7, 2015.
As yours truly, JD Tyler, I’m still hard at work on the Alpha Pack series. WOLF’S FALL is AVAILABLE NOW, and Commander Nick Westfall has finally gotten his story! Check out the blurb and buy links on the Home or Books pages! Nick has a tough road to travel, and a vampire war on the horizon…
Next up, I’ve just started writing CHASE THE DARKNESS, which will be Micah Chase’s story, and he’s got some major obstacles to overcome—if PTSD and addiction doesn’t bring him to his knees, a lethal enemy just might. CHASE will be released in August 2015, followed by a long novella titled PHOENIX REBORN for Phoenix and Noah in 2016! And great news—there are 2 more Alpha Pack books on the horizon after CHASE!! Those 2 books will quite possibly finish the series. My lips are sealed just yet as to who those stories belong to…
Last, I’m working on a brand-new paranormal series proposal that will branch off the Alpha Pack series. This series will be huge, so fingers crossed that it gets contracted! The premise is top secret, so that’s all I can say for now.
Last, many of you have asked about my upcoming romantic suspense release, ONE LAST KISS. That book has a new cover and will be released under my JD Tyler name. It will be out this December if it’s the last thing I do, so don’t despair. My obligations to my publisher have to come before my own projects, and I apologize for the holdup. It won’t be long now! I’ll post to everyone when the book goes up!
That’s all for now. Get ready for Christmas Cheer! I, for one, cannot wait! Who needs tropical beaches anyways?
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
All my best,
I’m so excited that COLE’S REDEMPTION is here! Book 5 of the Alpha Pack series is black wolf/Healer Zander Cole’s story, and this one is a 5-Hanky read! Shake-ups and revelations abound. Will the Pack mourn one of their most beloved brothers? Sometimes actions have tragic consequences…
In other news, I’ve just started writing book 6 of the series, WOLF’S FALL, which will be commander Nick Westfall’s story, at long last! I can’t tell you how pumped I am to begin writing Nick’s long-awaited story. Our favorite commander is hurting, body and soul, and only one woman can save him. Whether she’ll succeed remains to be seen…
After Nick’s book, I’ll be writing book 4 of the Sugarland Blue series as Jo Davis, which will likely be Detective Tonio Salvatore’s story… Stay Tuned!
And last, but not least, I’m thrilled to announce a new J.D. Tyler series: In addition to continuing with paranormal, I’m branching out into mainstream romantic suspense! Coming very soon is ONE LAST KISS (Armed & Deadly #1), the gripping start to my new FBI series. (See the awesome cover on my Coming Soon page) Readers, this series is much more dark and graphic than my Jo Davis romances, just so you’re aware. Here’s the exciting blurb:
National bestselling author J.D. Tyler, author of the bestselling Alpha Pack series, presents an exciting, gritty new series of romantic suspense…
They are the FBI’s best. Men and women who put their lives on the line, hunting the most dangerous, depraved criminals lurking in the underbelly of society. No situation is too treacherous, no risk too great to bring down their enemies. But for love, they’ll risk everything…
Special Agent Dominick “Nick” Roth is the FBI’s fallen star, a man on the brink of self-destruction, slowly drowning in guilt and grief due to his part in his partner’s death two years ago. Nick is ready to resign from the Bureau—until the monster who calls himself “Samson” goes back on the hunt, forcing Nick to play his deadly game once more.
Reeling in the wake of her best friend’s murder at the hands of an infamous serial killer, Lena DeAngelis demands justice. When she learns that the agent who knows Samson better than anyone refuses to rejoin the search to catch the murderer, Lena seeks him out and won’t accept “no” for an answer—Nick Roth is going to find the sadistic bastard and destroy him once and for all.
As passion ignites between Nick and Lena, a shocking web of obsession and murder comes to light…and a devastating truth rocks Nick to his core. Samson is closer than anyone realized, always remaining one step ahead—and Lena may be his next victim. Nick vows to take down the cunning monster, but success may come with a terrible price…
Order information will be up soon, I promise.
Great news: Since I last posted here, PRIMAL LAW has won the National Readers Choice Award for best paranormal romance! I’m still over the moon at receiving such a high honor, and my trophy is proudly displayed on my fireplace mantle. Thank you to all of the judges, and to the readers for their enthusiasm for the Alpha Pack series!
In other news: My most recent release arrived Tuesday, December 4—BLACK MOON, the 3rd book in my Alpha Pack series! I’m thrilled that Kalen’s story enjoyed a successful debut, hitting the Barnes and Noble Top 100 Bestseller list at #59! This has been best first week ever for one of my books, and I can’t thank my readers enough for their enthusiasm for the series! BLACK MOON also held steady for several weeks on the Amazon Kindle bestseller lists in the top 30 in romance and science fiction/fantasy. It has been very exciting for me to see Kalen’s story do so well, especially since he’s the darkest hero I’ve ever written. For those of you who’d like more insight into Kalen’s battles…
Kalen’s rough home life growing up, with only his grandmother as his rock, was essential to his emotional development as a grown man struggling to find his place. He finally lands in the Alpha Pack, starts to fall in love with Mackenzie, but even then, with the love and stability he’s always longed for within his grasp, he can’t trust that it’s real.
In BLACK MOON, Kalen is mentally struggling against being seduced to the side of evil by the Unseelie King Malik, and those were among the hardest scenes I’ve ever written. Kalen is a good man losing the battle for his mind, a man who’s never had love and wants it so desperately. He’s fighting against accepting a twisted form of love from a force who’s sweet-talking him, saying all the right things. Now he’ll have to find that core of inner strength that’s always been there, and use it to save everyone he loves.
Next up in the Alpha Pack series is HUNTER’S HEART, the 4th installment in the Alpha Pack series. (Due to be released September 4, 2013) This is Ryon Hunter’s story, and I can tell readers that 1) A big secret will be revealed involving the Alpha Pack, regarding a question posed back in PRIMAL LAW and 2) this is a “predator” story. It explores the question—what if one of Malik’s and Dr. Gene Bowman’s test subjects, an innocent human man, was an experiment gone wrong and accidentally got unleashed on the world when the labs were destroyed? Can Ryon, Ryon’s mate Daria, and the Pack save this man inside the creature? They’d better hope so. Because the most dangerous predator is the one you can’t see coming…
I’m also thrilled to announce that I’ve just sold books 6 and 7 of the Alpha Pack series to NAL, along with 2 more Sugarland Blue books and 3 contemporary novellas (as Jo Davis)! My writing schedule, already busy, just got quite insane! But I’m happy to have the opportunity to type away, creating more stories for the heroes we’ve grown to love. Keep an eye on my Facebook pages and websites, both this one and www.JoDavis.net, for release info and blurbs!
Great news: PRIMAL LAW has been nominated in 2 categories by reviewers over at The Romance Reviews—Best Paranormal Romance and Best Debut Book of 2011! Voting is closed, but winners should be announced soon at http://www.theromancereviews.com It’s an honor to be nominated!
In other news, I’m working on Kalen Black’s story, BLACK MOON, which is due to my editor soon. After that, I’ll start writing book 1 in my new contemporary series SUGARLAND BLUE, coming out next spring under my Jo Davis name. It’s the spinoff of my FIREFIGHTERS OF STATION FIVE series that my readers have been requesting for quite a while, and it focuses on the heroes at the Sugarland Police Dept., the dangers they face, and the women who love them. (Think BLUE BLOODS) Readers will be treated to some old favorites (Six-Pack, anyone?) and new loves. And yes, Detective Shane Ford gets the first book!
I’m also thrilled to announce that I’ve just sold books 4 and 5 of the Alpha Pack series to NAL! I’ll start writing book 4 this summer, after I finish book 1 of SUGARLAND BLUE, and the tentative title is HUNTER’S MOON. Three guesses who the hero of that story is! I can’t wait! Readers, I hope you’re as excited as I am.

In other news, I’ve turned in copy edits for SAVAGE AWAKENING (Aric’s story), so all that’s left to do is wait for April! To give you all a quick Alpha-fix, though, watch for BLACK MAGIC (Alpha Pack #1 ½, Kalen Black’s novella), coming from Penguin eSpecials in March 2012… This is the beginning of Kalen’s epic story that will be concluded in December 2012 with the release of his full-length book, BLACK MOON!
Last, for those of you who read and enjoyed my Jo Davis books (Firefighters of Station Five), or even if you haven’t yet, I’ve sold my spinoff of the Firefighters series to NAL! The new series, SUGARLAND BLUE, will be about the heroes behind the badge at the Sugarland PD, the dangers they face, and the women who love them. The series is tentatively set to launch in June 2013 with Detective Shane Ford’s story, book title TBA. I can’t wait to start writing! Ah, patience is a tough thing…
Welcome to my new website! I’m excited about the launch and I think Webcrafters did a fabulous job. Please browse at your leisure and read about my upcoming Alpha Pack series, which promises to be a sexy, fast-paced addition to the paranormal universe. I’m eagerly anticipating the release of PRIMAL LAW on August 2, and I hope readers love Jaxon Law and the rest of the team as much as I do! Happy Reading!
