I’m Back! Let’s Catch Up!

It’s been soooo long since I put out a newsletter! Like, over 2 years! Sheesh, life got hard for a little while and I just couldn’t find enough in myself to publish books or even newsletters these last 2 years. I’m sorry for the delay, but now that I’m out of the funk, it feels like I needed the break. So, now that we’ve established that I’m back, let’s catch up!

The Therapist series dropped summer of 2020 😱

The last you all heard from me, as far as publishing is concerned, was The Therapist series in 2020. I can’t believe it has been that long, but it has. This series was EVERYTHING, and it performed so well in 2020 & especially 2021 that it made it easier for me not to publish in 2021 & early 2022. This is by far my most popular series, and book 1 is easily my best-selling book to date, and I’m grateful this went so well. It went so well, in fact, that I’m using it in my comeback, but more on that later.

After this series came out and I started my TikTok, I really struggled with my identity as an author. If you’ve been following me for a long time, then you know this is nothing new for me. I’ve gone back-and-forth about the types of books I want to write since I started publishing in 2013. In 2020, a lot was happening publicly about race in America, and it made me question the type of material I wanted to write about at the time. I ended up writing a novel called A Fall From The Clouds, and it absolutely was the best and most impactful thing I’ve ever written. The problem was that it felt odd publishing it after the success of the Therapist series. To go from BDSM and kink, to conversations about race and police brutality felt wrong after I gained so many fans because of the Therapist. So I decided to shelf the book, right before I was sent on my fourth deployment of my military career.

I quit one manuscript right before I started a novel called The Patient while deployed to Qatar. Like A Fall From The Clouds, I actually finished the manuscript but just couldn’t bring myself to publish it because I didn’t think it was good enough to follow The Therapist. Somewhere along the way, my identity about who I am as an author became too confusing to even publish the stuff I was writing, and it wasn’t until my wife, Isabell Lucero, published her newest book that I started to figure out who I wanted to be after all this time.

Dysfunctional by Isabel Lucero

I can’t explain how watching my wife publish this book made me feel while I was deployed. She did something with this book and with this genre that I never thought about doing and didn’t know I could do. She pushed the boundaries in this story like never before, and it motivated me to learn how to do the same. There are things in Dysfunctional that will make your jaw drop, and I realized it takes those type of moments to create sustainable success in this industry. Also, the fact that she wrote a dark romance and had tremendous success with it was a huge deal to me. I’m not sure why it never dawned on me that I should be writing dark romance, but I had an epiphany when I realized that if I had written Madman as a dark romance, it would have been a much better book. Don’t give me wrong, Madman is still a fantastic book, but it would’ve been better if it was written as a dark romance, and I think anybody who has read it would agree with that. Once I realized what dark romance is, my mind shifted and opened up. I realized that this is where I should’ve been the entire time, and nothing has been the same since.

So, I’m sure you’re wondering what’s next now. For a long time, I didn’t know, but I do now and it’s dark & kinky. First, I have to pay homage to The Therapist series by giving it a box set! So, congratulations, you’re the first to know and the first to see the cover that I just approved last night!

If all goes according to plan, this set will publish on October 4th! I will have paperbacks available in the next week or so, so if you want an autographed copy, you’re already in the right place. You can place your order on my homepage.

After The Therapist box set, I will finally be releasing my first novel since 2020, called Kingdom. It’s a spicy, BDSM romance, and I hope to release it on November 1st! If you’re reading this, you’re the first to know that info! This book will do things none of my books has ever done, and just like the book that inspired it, it will make your jaw drop over and over again. More details about Kingdom are coming, so stay tuned.

In conclusion, it’s so good to be home, and to have a clear head about my future as an author. I discovered myself on this extended break from publishing, and I’m about to rock the world with what I bring now. I feel like I’m starting from scratch, and it’s so exciting. So buckle up, Greer Mafia, I’m literally just getting started. I’m back!
