This is Living is live! Now...moving on :)

So, Jayson and Chloe's story is finally complete with this publishing of This is Living. As much as it kills me to leave my favorite characters, it's time to move on. Still, you'll get to see more of them throughout the series.

What's next is Jayson's twin, Connor's book...aptly called Living Out Loud because this boy does everything with a bang :)

Living Out Loud will be live on May 17th...I'm at about 15,000 words right now. I had a slow start...I couldn't get Jayson out of my head, but Connor has finally taken up residence.

I'm loving this book and his character more and more everyday. I hope you will too!

Please add Living Out Loud to your TBR: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...

Getting ready for This is Living

So, I know it has been forever since I created a blog post. I figured I might be talking to myself so I quit posting. You know the old saying, "Fake it to you make it." I guess that's what I'm going to do. As of right now, there are a huge amount of people waiting on this blog post :)

Here we go:
This is Living will be released on February 7th, 2016. It is a continuation of Jayson and Chloe's story from To Live Again, although this novel is set in the present day, a little over 9 years since they met in collegel

I've had a great time writing this story even though there is a loss that the characters go through. Even so, their love is still as strong as ever and though they experience some marital growing pains, they still get their HEA.

Right now, I'm finishing up writing it and then it's on to the betas...so wish me luck!

Rewrites!

Hey everyone,
LOL, I'm probably talking to the air or maybe just to my PA, Crystal :) I am in the middle of doing rewrites. I am currently working on chapter 32. When I'm done it goes off to the proofreader, then back to me for more fixers. This is not the fun part of writing a book :). Sorry for the boring update. Oh, wait, something great happened today, but I'm not going to say yet. I will write it in a post very soon. Have a great night!

Brain Fried

My brain is so freaking fried! I created the media kits for my cover reveal on September 1st, 2015. I'm a perfectionist so I went over it about a zillion times! I think it looks good and I'm excited about adding it to my Goodreads listing.

Some really awesome news is I got the first book, Storm, in the Ashes & Embers series by Carian Cole. She is so freaking amazing!!!! I love everything she sent and it made up for the not so great day I was having.

Oh, and I found a proofreader today!!

My brain is about to explode!

So, its 3:59 AM CST and I'm creating a blog on GoodReads. Am I crazy, you ask. Probably, or at least I feel that way today! I finally wrote The End of To Live Again a couple of days ago. I just thought the hard part was over. OMG, promotions, proofing, formatting, etc...my brain is on a tilt-a-world...you know those old carnival rides? I'm still excited...just freaking out. My cover reveal is September 1st and then I can finally put a cover on my GoodReads listing. But, even though, I have spent this blog post griping, I'm still so happy to be able to write my story. I hope everyone will like it as much as I do.
