Today marks two years as an author. Time flies when you’re having a blast!
Two years ago I hit “publish” for the first time… and send Caged out into the wild.
To celebrate, I’ve put Caged up for a Kindle Countdown Sale. What does that mean? Well, right now, you can get Caged for 99¢/0.99 at Amazo...Read more of this blog post »

I posted FREE books and my readers took notice. There's nothing better than a book, unless that book is FREE, which makes it even better.

Combined, they polled 12% of the vote in New Hampshire. I doubt if any of their voters would ever migrate over to Donald Trump.
As the field dwindles, my prediction is that the last man standing nex... Read more of this blog post »

This book touched my emotions in so many ways! Earth’s End by Elise Kova made my emotions soar, just to turn them raw. Rarely have I felt a book so deeply.
Elise Kova is proving to be a master storyteller! I wanted to believe in the fairy tale relationship of Vhalla and Aldrick. I longed to. At th... Read more of this blog post »
Интервю на Мария Тонева
- “Изкуството е единственото сериозно нещо на този свят, а творецът - единственият човек, който никога не е сериозен”, казва Оскар Уайлд... Колко е важно да бъдеш сериозен в днешно време?
- За мен е важно да бъда несериозен. Забелязал съм, че колкото по-тъп е човек, толкова... Read more of this blog post »
The past few days I’ve been trying to get a little reading in, but can’t. I’m just sick of the sexism. Even worse, most of it comes from WOMEN. Gah. I love a good romance novel. I really do. The problem is finding one. All too often, the woman is portrayed as an idiot, a gold digger, or worse. Th...Read more of this blog post »
It’s official – the contracts are signed and I’ve pinched myself repeatedly in case I’m dreaming (and I’m not).
The fine people at Leapfrog Press are going to publish my first book – a collection of short stories which are all connected, in some way to Bryant Park in New York City. The bookwill b...Read more of this blog post »
Guy who accidentally burned down the Emily Dickinson house hides his past from his wife and children. Someone arrives out of the past to break everything open. Disturbing (especially the ending), but darkly funny. Beautifully made, and sometimes profound, sentences.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Still reeling from the onslaught of pages, I am not sure I can adequately express how profoundly this book has changed me, leveled me to the ground, dropped a building on top of me, throttled me through the jarring effects of an 8.0 earthq... Read more of this blog post »
I am super excited to announce my latest project. And it’s up for preorder!
I’ve been fairly quiet about this one. But I’m starting a new series of contemporary western romances. All the books in the series canbe read independently, but will all take place in the town of Sunset Plains, Oklahoma, a...Read more of this blog post »
Lovely video of Arcade Fire and the Preservation Hall band’s tribute to David Bowie in New Orleans. Weird and magical in so many ways.
One of my favorite candies are those little message hearts you get on Valentine’s Day. They each have their own personalities. Quite like the three wallpapers we have created to celebrate this day of love.
Our designers, Brittany Ungvarsky, Jeff Maurer and Kenzie Schmaltz, created these three h...Read more of this blog post »

Someannouncements, and a small fun thing to share. First, I have written an essay on Plato, historicity and metaphysics, based on my experiences teaching theRepublicto undergraduates and responding to Jo Walton’s The Just City. It is up on Crooked Timber as part of a set...Read more of this blog post »
So, there’s this coroner who invited thousands of strangers to ask her questions about death. Sounds like a pretty weird invitation, right? My first thought upon discovering this, was, “What kind of weirdo’s actually want to talk about death?” I, myself, had done a pretty good job at completely a...Read more of this blog post »
With all this wonderful weather we are having in California, if you are anywhere else it will be there soon, we are having quite the time with our backyard. As I have bugged my husband to mow it, he finally got his newest toy! Believe it or not, it is a manual mower.

Soy consumidora de un género que en sus albores era más bien… digamos que antiguo. No puedo pedirle a El señor de los anillos que introduzca más diversidad en la plantilla porque bueno, está escrito hace sesenta años. Sé que no se pueden pedir milagros por mucho que tanto la fantasía como la cien...Read more of this blog post »

¡Hola a todos!
Acabo de encontrarme en GoodReads un reto literario (que son una cosica que me priva) consistente en completar el alfabeto, de la A a la Z, con el nombre del protagonista masculino de una novela romántica que leas en 2016. Yo lo he adaptado a mi manera (ya sabéis que me va ese roll... Read more of this blog post »
