Taking Advantage of the Opportunity to Revise

As many of you know, my upcoming releases - the 4 books of the Svatura series - were originally self-published. My publisher, The Wild Rose Press, contracted them in January and we'll be released all 4 in October. It's now been 3 years since I released the first book (my first book ever).

The Bubble Gum Scene

One of my favorite write-related memes says, "Be careful or you might end up in my book." There's a particular scene in one of my Svatura books that is an excellent, and ridiculous, example of this. A little history first... I wrote most of the Svatura series books while in the middle of my MBA program. It... Continue Reading →

Character Breakdown: Lila & Ramsey

I'm working on edits for Crimson Dahlia this week and going through old notes to make sure I don't change anything critical. I thought I'd share these character breakdowns with you for fun.

This & That

I've had so much stuff going on lately with the Sarai's Fortune release, I've been totally obsessed with that. I still have an epic blog tour program set up for June that I'm getting ready for now, but I thought I'd take this opportunity to just chat about this and that. In other words, what else is rocking my world at the moment.

If you think it's a fun concept, I invite you to reciprocate with your own five words/topics that are top of mind for you - either in the comments below or... Continue Reading →

Blue Violet Travels to Estes Park

Remember my idea to leave my books in places as gifts for whomever picks them up - sort of "Flat Stanley" meets "Abandoned Art" meets giveaways? Well I just spent ten days at my favorite place on the planet - Estes Park, Colorado. And, since Blue Violet and parts of the rest of the Svatura series are... Continue Reading →
