Since I'm still working the day job and have several other balls to juggle, the first is simple exhaustion. It's hard to be creative when you're dead tired. At that point, I have to step back and assess priorities rather than stress out.
The second is the dreaded, what happens next? Fortunately I don't hit this one often, but when I do I brainstorm with friends. Sometimes it gets completely out of control and leads to great ideas for future books. :)(less)

Hi Janet ~
I'm so glad you enjoyed So About the Money. The chemistry between Holly & JC was a lot of fun to write. :)
I'm working on Book2 and recently finished a novella that's out with beta readers. Hopefully everything comes together for the scheduled fall release.
Both my website & FB page have a sign up link for the "new release" newsletter if you'd like for me to let you know when it's available.

I had a book launch one week ago. MOTTO FOR MURDER, Book #6 in my USA Today Bestselling Merry Wrath Mystery Series, came out Tuesday, April 24.


I think there's a glamorous misconception on what goes on the day a new book is launched. Obviously, I was lounging on the settee in a formal gown, wearing a tiara and plucking bon bons from a box of Belgian Chocolates - as hundreds of fans paraded by,... Read more of this blog post »

Alan Bennett
“The best moments in reading are when you come across something – a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things – which you had thought special and particular to you.

Alan Bennett, The History Boys
