Property of Big Daddy

 Kings of Anarchy MC book 2 is on the way and before you freak out at the release date please know it is only a placeholder date that gives me plenty of wiggle room to bring you the best book I can. 


Wall Street Journal & USA Today Bestselling Author Glenna Maynard is back with another gritty & thrilling ride in her Kings of Anarchy MC series.




I needed someone to get lost in, and she wanted to forget her past.
We were never meant to be anything serious, but now she wants more than I’m willing to give.
Gwynee is too young for me. Twenty years separate us. She wants to start a family.
I’ve been there and done that. I’m not looking to repeat past mistakes.
My club counts on me to think with the head on my shoulders and not the one between my legs.
One wrong decision could end all that we’ve worked for.
All that I’ve built from the ground up.
The brotherhood that saved me when my world fell apart.
I’ve fought for the freedom the open road gives us and taken out any enemy who dared to challenge us.
I never thought my greatest battle yet would be one of the heart.
One ultimatum with deadly consequences threatens not only our relationship, but the club when an enemy offers to give her the one thing she wants most.
I’ll do anything to prove to Gwynee that she’s always been 
mine, but will my effort prove too little too late?

Property of Big Daddy is a standalone age gap motorcycle club romance set in the Kings of Anarchy MC world.

The Biker Next Door

 It's here! The Biker Next Door is available at all your favorite retailers. 



Wall Street Journal & USA Today Bestselling Author Glenna Maynard returns with another gritty and thrilling ride in the Royal Bastards MC world.

Stella
My next-door neighbor isn’t a good man. He’s an outlaw biker, and I’m certain he’s stalking me. Leaving threatening notes on my car. Watching my every move. He’s always doing things to scare me. He says I’m playing a dangerous game because I ask too many questions. I make too much noise about his club on my podcast. I don’t care that he’s unbelievably good looking or dangerous. I won’t stop pursuing the truth until I catch my sister’s killer. Until I take down him and his club.
T-bird
My new neighbor is hotter than hell with a stone-cold heart. She’s also considered an enemy. The stubborn woman doesn’t know when to quit. She has no idea what she’s up against. Blaming my club for her sister’s disappearance isn’t going to get her the answers she seeks. I’ve been tasked with silencing her, but I’m falling for the enemy.
Will she learn to trust me, or will she be doomed to her sister’s fate?
The Biker Next Door is book 15 of Royal Bastards MC: Charleston, WV but can be read as a standalone.

2024 Publishing Updates



 It's been a while since I've done a post like this here. I'm always getting asked what books are on the way. Where is the next in the BRRMC Chicago series? Why aren't there more preorders for Royal bastards MC? Where's the next Kings of Anarchy book? Where is FMK?

So preorders have been stressing me way out so I decided that it would be best to no longer put them up until I know a book is nearly finished because I don't want to be rushing down to the wire to get a book out on time. If I miss a deadline with Amazon they will revoke my preorder rights. Other sites don't punish me for this so I may switch to doing them on wide stores and doing live releases on Amazon. We will see how things shake out. 

I get into weird ruts of burnout when I push myself too hard and that's where I have been since the middle of November. I am finally getting out of that headspace and into my writing groove. I really thought I was going to cancel the preorder for The Biker Next Door and accept the preorder ban penalty. However, I am now confident that is no longer the case. In fact you can see covers for two more RBMC books under the Royal Bastards header at the top of my site. Woohoo. 

But and it's a big but- I don't have release dates set. I'm not ready to announce the ones I have in mind until I know I can deliver. 

This brings us to These Hollow Kisses, book 2 of my BRRMC Chicago series. I know I left you all on one hell  of a cliffhanger but it's coming. I am currently bouncing between four books. I used to juggle a few stories at a time and I think it is helping me get back in the swing. 

Then there is Big Daddy and my Kings. I know you guys are eager for his book and I have his cover but he's not ready to talk to me just yet. Sometimes that's just how the creative process goes. So while some things may take longer to release, I hope you understand that I am working on all the things. 

And yes, this includes FMK which is now the Ruthless Love Duet (Her Bully & His Dolly). I have been debating releasing this one on serial platforms like Kindle Vella and Radish so I can be writing on it over time and not taking away form my core love of writing bikers. I am still undecided. There are some standalones I am itching to work on too but more about those stories later. There is only so much of me to go around. 

My time lately has been consumed by the newest member of our family. My daughter received a puppy and I had forgotten how much time and attention they can need. We are finally getting on a schedule that works for us. As much as I love writing family will always come first. Balance is hard but I'm working on it.

Trusting The Biker is here!

 Now Live!




☠️đź–¤Trusting The Biker 

☠️Zoe

I’m no stranger to bikers. My brother is a member of Royal Bastards MC. Notorious outlaws who live, ride, and die by their code. I know better than to set my heart on a motorcycle man, and yet, I do it anyway. I know Prodigy will break my heart, but I crave the pain, like an addict. To remind myself that I’m damaged goods. After a failed marriage, I know the score. Only love can hurt like this.

đź–¤Prodigy

I swore I wouldn’t get involved with Zoe. She’s independent and proven time and again she doesn’t need a man. Nor does she want one. However, when her no good ex husband rides into town to cause havoc in her life, I step in to send a message loud and clear. No one messes with our property and like it or not, Zoe’s ours. I’m going to make her mine, but first, she needs to trust me.

I’ll do whatever it takes to prove to her and anyone else who gets in my way, that this biker is putting in his claim.

BRRMC is Back

 


Black Rebel Riders' MC is back but this time your ride starts in Chicago. 

Even if you are new to this club trust me you don't want to miss this. 

I have so much love for all my bikers but there is just something about my first club that hits me in all the feels and it's like going back home. 

All the gritty, dark, angst you loved about the original series is featured in These Deadly Vows. 

I'm back and feeling better than ever about returning to this world and yes, there are even some characters from the OG series in this one and just maybe in future books you will get to revisit Drag Creek too. 

I don't want to spoil anything but okay you've twisted my arm and yes there will be some visits to Drag Creek. I cannot freaking wait to catch up with Rebel, Striker, and Baby among others. 

I'm not saying they will have POVs in upcoming books but I'm not saying that they won't either. 

Anyway, release day is here. I hope you enjoy the start of one hell of a ride. 

Much love, 

Glenna 


I've been kidnapped by a ruthless biker.

A killer who is at war with my father.

Ghost only wants two things.

Control of Chicago and me.

Forced into a marriage of contract to a man much older than me, I’ll do whatever it takes to survive.

When he learns my secret, will these deadly vows save me or be my demise?

These Deadly Vows is book 1 of Black Rebel Riders’ MC Chicago

Ten years!

 

How do I put ten years of stories into a few paragraphs?

I have no idea. When I first started this journey, it was something fun to do because at the time I was unable to find something I wanted to read.  After a conversation with my beloved friend Morgan Jane Mitchell about how she had been writing True Blood Fanfiction for quite some time, I fell down the rabbit hole of self-publishing and then an idea was born. I don’t think if she hadn’t been holding my hand the whole way that I would be celebrating ten years of being a published author.

Believe it or not I began writing a paranormal romance about a drug addicted stripper who fell for a vampire. Ha. That didn’t last long. The story evolved into a contemporary new adult romance that was terrible. It was not edited like at all, and I was just like this is fantastic.

It was utter garbage, and I had no business publishing probably my first ten stories. I didn’t have a clue what I was doing. And that dumpster fire of a first book I produced for $13.  The book sold decently well considering how bad it was. I think I managed to debut under the top three hundred on the Amazon eBooks bestseller’s list for that week.  I have no idea why, but I’m grateful that the readers from that time took a chance on me. I kept writing and improving my storytelling. I attempted to work with some editors who also weren’t the greatest, but the book world was so different then. It wasn’t a business for me yet and I was a stay-at-home mom who didn’t want to go back to working fast food or pursuing being a pharmacy tech any further, because it didn’t bring me joy.

Not that work is fun for everyone, but I wanted to work from home and do something that I love.

Writing filled this space in me that I didn’t know I was missing, and once I started there was no stopping me. I finally found something that sparked so much passion in me. For the first time I had this sense of belonging to a community. All through school I struggled to fit in and make true friends outside of a few who I am still close with until this day.  My childhood bestie owns nearly every book I’ve ever written and has copies of some paperbacks I’ve never held.

She has been such a huge supporter and I love her for it because she’s not a dedicated reader, but she reads my books.

With anything there are downsides and I struggled for a while to find my niche. What really called to me to write about.

I’ve had so much encouragement from my fellow authors and readers to keep going on days I thought maybe I wasn’t as cut out for this as I thought. I wanted to give up so many times.

We were struggling financially, and I needed a paying job.

Then I saw this picture on Pinterest. (I get a lot of visual inspiration from there) And this idea for the story Baby came to me. I started planning a motorcycle club romance and I was invited to participate in an anthology that was MC romance based and I needed to write a submission for that. I thought well what better than a prequel to Baby that introduces the club and why she is this spoiled biker brat. Grim The Beginning was born, and I started bringing Black Rebel Riders’ MC to life in early 2014. Then tragedy struck my family and my uncle, Cowboy passed away in a motorcycle accident.

I dropped from the anthology and was unsure if I would continue with the story but then I realized that I owed it to my characters and myself to move forward with the story. My father had belonged to Brothers of The Wheel when I was a child and I thought about my dad and how he would have told me to keep going. That he would have wanted me to keep chasing this dream.  I dedicated that first MC story to some of the people who shaped me with their love of rock ‘n roll and Harley Davidson motorcycles. The editing was again terrible but somehow Grim attracted a readership. And for the first time I tasted some real success and I fell in love with writing gritty alphaholes and never looked back.

I’m still improving on my craft and continue to learn and grow with each new book.

I’ve had so many ups and downs. I’ve made new friends and lost them. I spent years ghostwriting stories for other people until I was earning an income from my books that allowed me to solely focus on my own stories.  I learned so much from the experience that I don’t regret it. I made my peace with those stories never having my name on them so don’t ask or try and figure out if they were published.

I’ve written well over 100 books and hope to write 100 more.

To celebrate my tenth year, I’ve gone back to where I truly fell in love with writing. Back to Grim and the BRRMC. His book is getting some much needed love and edits. I’ll be publishing the special edition hardback soon, so be on the lookout.

The ebook and paperback versions will be updated with the new edits soon. Here is the front cover for the hardback.



Happy reading!

Glenna
