Release Week! Alluring Surrender’s Playlist

Nothing is better than music, right!?

My debut series, Bayou Stix, is about the band Bayou Stix. The characters are musicians, but the books are more about the people in the band over the actual band. There are band things covered, but I focus more on the people and less on the act in my books.

Why did I choose to make my characters musicians? Well, because I love music. It’s something I’ve always loved. Music is one of the most amazing things on the planet. Music has the innate ability to invoke emotion. It can alter your mood with only the beat of the bass and the lyrics of the songs. It’s almost mystical and if you think about it… it’s magical.

Every book of mine has a Playlist for this reason. When you listen BEFORE you read, it gives you some insight into what might happen in the book. It keeps you guessing. When you listen AFTER you read the books, you can relate certain songs to specific situations in the book. Continue reading

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.

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

The Great Selfie Debate

Selfies… love them or hate them. It looks like they are here to stay.

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
