About this author

Author of speculative romance (aka Julie Particka, young adult author).

My quirky spy series, For Keeps, is published by Entangled: GAMING FOR KEEPS and CONNING FOR KEEPS (coming 2/3/14)! As are my books with the Brazen line.

My steampunk romance series is from Carina Press: BADLANDS and CLOCKWORK MAFIA.

The Blood Kissed novels (KISS OF DEATH and, coming soon, KISS OF LIFE) are available from Mundania Press.

The short stories that begin the Blood Kissed series (OF COURSE I TRY and THE GHOST OF VAMPIRE PRESENT) are currently out of print. They will be available again in a Blood Kissed anthology sometime in 2014)

My short stories YES,ALANA, THERE IS A SANTA CLAUS; MAKING THE NAUGHTY LIST; and A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS are part of Evernight Pu

For those of you who know me or who follow me on social media (or I may have even discussed it here previously), you know I'm not a fan of New Year's Resolutions. To me a resolution says I'm going to do (or not do) __THIS__. Problem with that is, as soon as you slip up, you've failed. I'm not a fan of setting oneself up for failure.

You get work however you get work, but keep people keep working in a freelance world (and more and more of todays world is freelance), because their work is good, because they are easy to get along with and because they deliver the work on time. And you don’t even need all three! Two out of three is fine. People will tolerate how unpleasant you are if your work is good and you deliver it on time. People will forgive the lateness of your work if it is good and they like you. And you don’t have to be as good as everyone else if you’re on time and it’s always a pleasure to hear from you.Neil Gaiman
