Searching for Ever After

I  have been in my writing cave working on more and more manuscripts, but I’m taking a break today to share the cover of one of my two February releases.  Wedding Tails  is a project I’ve undertaken with some of my Sourcebooks sisters, and it started when we all wondered what would happen if we each wrote a novella based in our story worlds (mine is the  Deadly Force  world) where there was a wedding and a dog and many of our favorite characters. And it would be released on Valentine’s Day! Since book 3 in my Deadly Force series,  In Search of Truth , has a dog named Nicholas Trott and ends with the engagement of Zack and Allison, I knew I had to write their wedding story. I also need them to be married in the next book in the series,  A Promise at Midnight  (Alex and Maddie’s story). (Oh, the problems of authors writing a long-standing series!) So I wrote  Searching for Ever After , a story where Zack and Allison get married but not before all sorts of things happen to try and and sto

Glitches and Gratitude

Yesterday was a huge day for me. I had three holiday anthologies release into the world: Let's Get Naughty , Wanted: Mistletoe , and Christmas Wishes & New Year's Kisses . Let's Get Naughty , in particular,  was a huge labor of love for me because all of the authors in the group were hoping to make the USA Today Bestseller's List . Becoming a USA Today Bestseller is a serious deal for any author, and it requires an enormous number of preordered sales and at least a year of promotion and marketing by at least 40 authors.  When I went to sleep on Halloween night, our preorder numbers for all the anthologies were great and we thought that we might have a chance to "make the list". Then, when I woke up yesterday morning, we learned that one of the largest booksellers in the world ("The 'Zon") had experienced a glitch . A glitch that wiped out thousands of sales in under a minute, leaving us with unfilled orders. A glitch that could destroy our

Mister October... Just in Time for Halloween!

I can't believe it's been months since I've written in this space, and I missed you all! I spent the time away writing for many deadlines and traveling to visit family. And while I had a wonderful time, I'm so happy to be here again. Anyway, today is a huge day because one of my favorite stories that I’ve written this year is out now!  One October Night , one of the first stories in my Kingsmill Courtships series, is now available for a  limited time in the Mister October anthology. BAD DECISIONS. BROKEN HEARTS. SECOND CHANCES What do these all have in common? Mister October!  Think naughty costumes, deliciously devious “snacks,” and spooky twists. And, of course, sexy heroes and HEAs! Follow our dauntless heroines through bad decisions, broken hearts and second chances. You’ll love the mix of suspense, comedy, sweet/steamy romance, and holiday drama without a drop of magic. Are ready for a book that will keep you up all night? And when that doorbell rings, will you ans

Love's Last Kiss... ARCs Now Avaialable!

I am so happy to announce that Love's Last Kiss , the next book in my Deadly Force romantic suspense series, is now available for preorder for both e-book and paperback . If you would like to request a free Advanced Reading Copy (ARC), it's available on two platforms: BookSirens and NetGalley . You will have to register, but there's no fee.  This book began as a short story, that turned into a novella, that decided (on its own!) to become a full-length novel. This is, technically, book 1.5 in the series since it falls between  Every Deep Desire  (book 1) and  One Dark Wish  (book 2) . And later this month I’ll begin a blog series of how this traditionally published author became a hybrid author–and the chaos train I had to jump on to make it all work. LOL. So with no further ado…. Here’s the blurb: Is love worth risking everything for? Rose Guthrie, a reluctant erotic dancer, hasn’t trusted anyone since her parents’ death. Yet, to make money for her brother’s heart transp

Disillusioned with your Resolutions? Let's check-in on our New Year's Goals!

TWO MONTH GOAL CHECK-IN! 🎉🎉  How's the new year going so far? We’re now two months into the decade—should we check the pulse on your New Year's  resolutions? Lol, just kidding! I know the statistics for following through on New Year’s resolutions are grim—believe me, I can’t remember how many Januaries I’ve resolved to lose weight, go to the gym regularly, or consistently write each day…and then failed. Yet I still have hope, that with a good plan, I’ll accomplish ALL THE THINGS. My inner voice says: This is going to be a great year, a fabulous decade, and I need BIG goals to get me where I want to be. Well, I think that voice is right… I just have to learn NOT to try and change everything all at once! Listen and Learn...  Lately, I’ve been listening to podcasts by writer and success coach, Becca Syme. One of the things she talks about, is how planning systems need to be individualized. So if your new system is failing you two mont

You Had Me at Wolf Released!

We’re back in Silver Town for a whole new adventure! This time, it’s about the Wolf brothers and their sisters who have established the new ski lodge and restaurant for guests in town. Blake Wolff is having one of those days. You know the kind. When your dog runs off and the snowblower isn’t working right and you slip and fall on ice. Yep, it’s just…one…of…those…days. You have to take pity on the wolf and just want to give him a big hug. At least that’s what Nicole Grayson tells herself when she just does that and she doesn’t know the wolf from Adam. Hope you love the new series! It’s in audio book too! Imagine the fun you could have just listening to the adventure hands free while you’re taking a walk with him, or shoveling snow, or gardening.
