The Bidden Series recently celebrated (rather quietly) its fifth anniversary of the publication of Candidate Four. Eleven stories later and here I am with the next installment’s cover and release day!

If you read my last post you’ll know that I hinted about making some changes, growing up the characters a little bit. Palm Springs is no exception and is really the first taste of what’s to come in the Bidden world.

The series has always had its own narrative dressing of sex and glamour without being in your face about it. Personally I love a beautiful woman on a romance cover, and that’s the mood of what I’ve gone for these past eleven stories. Here are each of the covers (I secretly love looking at them, because holy shit I wrote these books).

What I’m streaming now

Yes I included Forbidden Halloween. You have no idea how tempted I am to write more campy stories like that. Maybe an entire arc of holiday-themed shorts that are non-canonical. That could be so much fun.

Anyway, with the original hexology finished (or double-trilogy?) and the world and these characters established, I felt it was time to start shifting in the direction of a new mood. So without further adieu, I give you the cover of Palm Springs, Book Twelve of the Bidden Series.
