What a difference 8 months makes…

Eight months ago, in the middle of summer, with my kids home and my husband offshore, I got this crazy idea. I decided that I no longer wanted to edit other authors books, but instead I wanted to write a book of my own.

I sat down at the end of my dining room table and I wrote. The first day, I wrote over 9000 words.

I’d had this idea for a book in my head for a very long time and I decided it was time for it to come out. Continue reading

I’m a writer, so expressing my thoughts and feelings should be easy, right?! I mean I write books and through my writing I’m able to convey a characters thoughts and emotions and invoke an answering response in my readers.

I should be able to do this all of the time in my everyday life too, right?

Sometimes I simply don’t know what to say or how to say it. Sometimes what I want to say is not the right thing to say or there are simply no adequate words.

Alluring Seduction COVER REVEAL and my 34th birthday.

Yesterday was my 34th birthday. It started off not all that great with a morning message that followed me throughout the day. However, my 2nd book will be out January 3, 2014 and the cover reveal was  yesterday!

Over 70 blogs and FB pages posted my Reveal and it was shared, tweeted, and reposted over and over and over. Most people are loving the cover and I am completely in love with it. It’s perfect for the book.

I also received an abundance of birthday wishes and just feel so loved. For that I thank you.
