I finally finished A Breath of Fire. The book has been out for around three months. It took me a few weeks to get started reading it, but I was immediately hooked. I love this book just as much as the first one, A Promise of Fire. The book picks up soon after the events in the first book, and we learn more about Kat, her background, and the world that she and Griffin live in.

The first thing that I have to note is that the first 10% of this book is all sex.

Seriously. It’s all sex. Well-writt...

Hey guys! Sorry I’ve been totally silent for a while. It’s been an interesting and sort of frustrating few months.

Last week, I got a pacemaker. Yep. My heart has issues. Apparently, when I faint, my heart stops beating for around ten seconds. Or maybe I faint because my heart stops beating. It’s the chicken and the egg problem of which came first, but either way, it’s not supposed to happen. Thus, the pacemaker.

For those who have been following me a while, you might remember the I-broke-my...

dark-horseYou guys, if you haven’t read this series, get ye to the electronic bookstore and buy Dark Horse, the first book in this awesome sci-fi romance series.

If you have been following me for a while, you know that I’m extremely picky when it comes to sci-fi romance. It has to be the perfect mix of intriguing, high-octane adventure and romance. Linnea Sinclair does this perfectly. So does Rachel Bach. There have been a few other books I’ve enjoyed as well but I think Michelle Diener’s Class 5 serie...

(WARW (Write a Review Wednesday) is something I started because I have a habit of putting off writing reviews. As an author, I know how important reviews are for the success of a book, so I’m making a concerted effort to write at least one review a week. Reviews might not always be about books–they could be about games, podcasts, online classes, etc–and I’d love it if you guys linked to one of your reviews (of whatever you want) in the comments. If you want to see all my WARW reviews, click W...

Confession: even though I ask readers to leave reviews for my books and appreciate every single one, I’m TERRIBLEat writing reviews myself.

I know! Horrible, right? I just realized this the other day when I looked at Goodreads and saw how far behind I am on my 2016 Reading Goal. I’m not really THAT far behind; I just haven’t reviewed any books in months.

So I’m beginning a weekly blog feature to remedy that. I’m calling it Write a Review Wednesday. WARW for short, which I’m thinking is pronou...

October 19, 2016

I just spent an hour and forty-five minutes at my kids’ school tearing pages out of workbooks.

An hour and forty-five minutes! Non-stop tearing and sorting. My back is totally killing me–just popped a couple of ibuprofen–but I’m so glad I could help out. That’s a ton of time consuming work for teachers to do, and there’s no way the little Kindergartners could find the right pages on their own, let alone tear them out.

I’m going to try to help out more. It’s kind of funny. My mom, who taught f...

About that Summer: Well, the minions were home with me full-time this summer for the first time since they were born. I knew it would be tough–I’m so not a kid entertainer–but we made it through it. Actually, it went kind of quickly except for the fact that I was dying to write. I think I mentioned it in my last update, but the second anomaly novel was soooooo close to being finished. I needed one solid week, maybe two to get the final revisions done, and then I could send it off to the copy...

June(Quick note: the blog post below is full of lots of mistakes. You’ll see why as you read on, but I don’t want to make changes. I want to see if the accuracy of my posts increase over the summer. So I’m typing this part as a head’s up. And also I’m admitting that I fixed “T-Minus 2 days” and “Aren POV” because they were driving me crazy and I hadn’t yet decided to leave the errors in this post. But if you guys are totally confused on something and want me to clarify, let me know in the comment...

pirateboundOver the weekend, I read PIRATE BOUND by new author Carysa Locke, and I LOVED it. I did my whole I-found-a-new-sci-fi-author-to-love happy dance, something that I honestly don’t do too much in this genre (I’m very, very picky.)

But I was also super happy for another reason. Way back when I first started being a “serious” author, I stumbled upon Carysa on…. I think Livejournal? Yeah, it was that long ago. Anyway, I was writing the shadow reader series at the time, but I also had Shades of Trea...
