Last May, after the tragic death of George Floyd and subsequent protests across the country related to the social injustices and the unnecessary police shootings and violence, my friend and sensitivity editor, Renita McKinney of A Book a Day Author Services, decided enough was enough. She was tired of the constant negativity and wanted to put her actions where her mouth was – in doing something about it. Changing perception, incorporating diversity in romance books, and encouraging the education of Black youth.

Renita took action and sent out a call to action to authors to write and create original stories dedicated to demonstrating that love happens across borders, racial divides and skin color. And so her story began – the anthology of A Book A Day Presents: Color Theory. 17 Exclusive ALL-NEW romance stories by bestselling authors about couples who defy convention and follow their hearts.

These stories are all brand new and only available in this box set anthology.

Love is blind, but it's never easy. A Book a Day Presents: Color Theory is a collection of stories about love that is determined not by the color of one's skin, but by the connection of two hearts. They face challenges, but together they not only overcome—but soar. These couples know the color of one's skin can't determine who a person loves. Love is so much more.

This amazing anthology will only be available for a short time, and all the proceeds will go to the education of students of color. A Book A Day is teaming with a local organization in Renita’s hometown of San Antonio to provide scholarships to Black students that wish to expand their education beyond high school.

I am honored to have my short story, Above the Rim, featured in this collection of books. I hope you’ll consider purchasing this exclusive boxset now and help these students in their endeavor to enrich their lives and their educational knowledge.

I think it goes without saying – I will not be shedding any tears when I say goodbye to 2020 on New Year’s Eve. I will raise a glass (and possibly my middle finger) and usher in 2021 with a smile.

But I do want to look back at the good things that were accomplished in 2020. While being under lock-down and quarantine due to COVID-19 left me a little stir crazy, it did most certainly give me the added time and renewed focus to achieve some things I might not have otherwise been able to do.

So, hats off to getting shit done in 2020!

  • Ended the year with 32 published books in my portfolio

  • Published 6 new books (completed 9 books – 2 which will be published in early January and 1 other for a charity anthology in February 2021)

  • Published 3 audiobooks (2 with Tantor Media and 1 with Cocky Hero Club) and self-published 1 audiobook, Reckless

  • Signed a contract for hockey romance with Heart Eyes Publishing to be published in early summer 2021

  • Curated a 15-author collective to write a shared world series called The All American Boy Series (releases begin January 25th, 2021)

  • Signed audiobook contract for Change of Course with Tantor (TBD 2021)

  • Wrote and published 303,301 words!!!

  • Won 2 awards – Game Changer was a runner up in the Buyers Best Book Awards and won the 2020 RONE Award from InD’Tale Magazine

  • Created a YouTube channel in May and interviewed/produced the Sierra Talks Books with Authors segment (a total of 13 videos!)

​Sure, there were some really cruddy parts of the year and goals I didn’t reach that I would’ve liked to hit, but all-in-all, I’m happy with where things landed.

I’m also so excited to share the wonderful things I have planned for next year! One hint: it has to do with a new pen name or maybe even two!

Stay tuned for more!

In the meantime, make sure to add my January book releases, Change of Course and The Boy Next Door, to your Goodreads TBRs and get ready for what is sure to be a fabulous year of reading!

All my best for a very happy holiday season.

Be Sweet. Love Hard. Read Dirty.

Xoxo, Sierra

​I don’t want to jinx us, but we’ve almost made it through the end of this mucked up year! We should celebrate this success and look back on 2020 as the year the universe told us to ‘slow down’ and ‘stay put.’

There is no denying that this year has made us all aware of how fragile and fleeting life can be and how difficult it is when we’re told we can’t do the things we normally do. But look at how resilient it’s made us! We’ve come together in far greater ways than ever before, relying on technology to keep us connected and focusing on the small things that make life bearable.

Another way we’ve found connection is through entertainment, such as TV shows, On Demand movies and of course, books. Lots and lots of books! I don’t know about you, but there was a few months this past summer where I couldn’t even pick up a new book to read. I just didn’t have it in me. But I’m past all that and for those of you who read romance, there has been no shortage of new books this year – all available at our fingertips!

And speaking of new books, I have a new release coming out just in time for the Christmas holiday! The Knight Before Christmas (A Mountain Man Holiday Short Story) is (you guessed it) a short holiday story about a mountain man and the woman that rescues him. Well, technically, he actually rescues her from peril when her car breaks down on Knight’s Mountain in the middle of a Christmas Even snowstorm. But she saves him emotionally with her love, kindness and generosity of spirit.

And that’s really what the holidays are all about, right? Love. Family. Kindness. Gratitude. And the act of giving.

The Knight Before Christmas releases on December 8th and is the first book in the Mountain Man Holiday Short Story series, with other books from the Flirt Club authors scheduled to release after. Get it for FREE on Kindle Unlimited and add it to your Goodreads TBR here.

If you’re reading this, I wish you the happiest and healthiest of holiday seasons. May it bring you joy and peace, and a time for reflection on all the positive experiences you gained out of this hellacious year.

All my best for a very happy holiday season.

Be Sweet. Love Hard. Read Dirty.

Xoxo, Sierra
