Liza shares her plans for 2017 and invites you to help on some of her photos.

I've decided to share with you 
my 2017 planned Publications

Technically, the first book will be published 12/30/16 but in my mind, it's the first 2017 book

Scavenger Falters
Sci-Fi Romance
Book 2
Alisha Kane, the Corps’ best flier is promoted to Colonel, in charge of teaching the Corp’s SkyRyders her extraordinary flying maneuvers. The man she loves, Logan, continues to place the Corps first and insists they both remain focused on their work. For Alisha, this means ferreting out the best fliers in a Corps that has systematically forced great fliers into mediocrity. Logan focuses on learning Alisha’s flying techniques so that he can become the hero that the East Coast desperately needs. The result includes fractured ribs and broken hearts, but through it all they never relinquish their love of the Corps. 

Scavenger Vanishes
Sci-Fi Romance
Book 3
Stationed on opposite coasts, Alisha and Logan must each face their own demons and challenges. On the West Coast, Alisha loses her rank for butting heads with her General and soon discovers the life of a private can be utter hell. On the East Coast, newly promoted General Logan discovers his soldiers do not recognize his authority to command. In an effort to retake control of the East Coast Corps, Logan authorizes unthinkable actions. When Alisha faces a life-threatening crisis, will Logan rise above his own troubles or will she discover love and rescue with her best friend Jack?

Angel of Mercy 
Contemporary Romance with Suspense

She never imagines the twists and turns her life and heart will take the day she brings him home.

Plus, two other books, which I am currently writing.

Book 8 of 
The Adventures of Xavier & Vic


Requires Rescue Book 3
Saving Sentry

I wandered off for hours and worked on different options for Angel of Mercy and book two, Easy Love, but the picture for book two looks nothing like book one, so I'll have to start over or choose one of the pics and redo the other. I would love to know your opinion on which one to save, if any.

Here's the ones I made for book one, Angel of Mercy:

 The story begins with the heroine driving home with a migraine. She's taking back roads rarely used so car lights won't shine in her eyes. She takes a curve and super bright lights completely blind her. She loses her vision and before she stops, she hits something. She calls 911 and then blindly goes out searching for whomever she hit. She finds the guy, but he's at risk of freezing to death before the ambulance arrives, so she moves him onto an emergency blanket an then lays down on top of him with her fur coat over them both.

It saves his life, but he's paralyzed, possibly due to her moving him. He wants her sent to jail, so his buddy charges her. The judge who gets the case thinks it makes no sense to send her to jail and upon getting all the facts, decides since she broke him, she needs to fix him, and if she does, the judge will expunge her criminal record.

Steve is a good looking fellow, but he's a handful and a half, even when paralyzed.

My thoughts: I mentally liked the idea of light hitting her face, but my attempt (center one) doesn't work for me.  
I like the first one because it's really dark and it was really dark that night.
I like the last one because the face rather looks like light is shining on it.

Here's the pic I made for two, which fails to connect to any of the book 1 pics. But the question is, should I be changing two or one, or do you hate them all...

In book 2 Angel discovers the man she thought was her easy love isn't the man she knows at all. He wants a divorce, which she gives him, but he also wants her son, which is not his by blood. The boy is her first love's child who died saving her life. Theirs was not an easy love, but it was a strong one.

This image symbolically shows her drowning in depression. Her wonderful life dissolving before her eyes. She is heartbroken, her son hates her, her recently divorced husband is critical of everything she does and wants to take her son away from her.

I resonate to this pic, but then I'm weird...

So which of the four pics do you like most?

And for those pondering how I can possibly write ten books a year, well, I can't. However, I spent 10 years doing nothing but writing books, and I began to this journey with 130 books waiting to be edited and published. Still, publishing ten books a year is a challenge, and I'm not sure how long I'll be able to do it. But when it gets too much, I'll throttle back and do less.
