Good things are coming… (and maybe an excerpt)

It’s been awhile since I’ve updated my blog. I’m way behind. So, this will be a giant post with a whole lot of information. Try to keep up.

Not typical

There’s coffee and chocolate at the end.

Before I jump into the technical, how about a treat!?

Heartfelt Gratitude… Love After Pain

Authors write books from our hearts. Our stories may sometimes be fiction, but within every story is a large dose of reality. It can be in the characters, the situations, or the details, but most of us put ourselves into our work. Sometimes it’s intentional, sometimes it’s not, but I haven’t met an author yet or read a book that was purely “fiction.”

When I started this journey almost a year ago now, I had no idea what would happen or how I would do. I didn’t know if anyone would even read my work. But, I gave it my all and wrote my story, my way… and for the most part people enjoyed it.

My first published book, my first book really, is Alluring Turmoil. Continue reading

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

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.

Bells and Whistles

In case you haven’t noticed, I’m a quirky, speak my mind, no filter kind of woman.

Some people love it, some people hate it, but I am me and I don’t see the point in hiding or changing who you are to make others happy.

Loads of things have been going on with me. I’ll try to jot them all down and also give y’all the dates of some totally awesome stuff, you are not going to want to miss!

Wacky

Enlightenment

It’s been a whirlwind week.

To be honest, my life right now, doesn’t seem real. I kind of feel like I’m in a tunnel underwater, with my head all fuzzy, and my senses out of whack.

My debut novel released early (on Amazon) one week ago tonight. And it’s been nuts.
