Looking For A Few Good Fans

July 28, 2014

Howdy Gang!

Well, the release of my first Entangled book is only weeks away and I’m hoping some of you might be interested in helping a girl out. I need a few folks willing to take part in some posting projects that go into effect on release day, August 18th. The first is an active Thunderclap–a fun new take on group scheduled posts–and the second is a Release Day Blitz!


These projects won’t be without it’s rewards, however. Five random signers will be sent an ARC of my upcoming novel, “Convicted”, but to win, you’ve got to enter! Each sign up counts as an entry, and yes, you can enter for multiple social media accounts!


Join The Bad Girls Bandwagon!

Thunderclap requires 100 people to sign up, thus agreeing to schedule my post on either Twitter, Facebook or Tumblr. The post is scheduled for August 18th. The down side is, no 100 signers, no social media party. (Insert sad, depressing music accompanied by tear laden puppy eyes here)

It’s low commitment and you don’t even have to remember to do it after you sign up, the posts go out automatically. It’s like RTs, only you don’t have to do anything!

Click here to see the campaign!



This one is a bit more intensive, but you’ll be supplied with everything you could possibly need. I’m in need of people to help blast my release day blitz! If you have a blog page or a facebook page or even just a Tumblr, I’d love for you to help spread the word. All you have to do is sign up and three days before the release, I’ll send you the post you need (already coded for your particular type of social media page), complete with images. Schedule the posts for August 18th and you’re all set!

Click here to see the details and sign up!


Looking forward to hearing from you!

When The Lights Go Out…

March 1, 2014

Sadly, this isn’t a romantic post.

My power went out last night and honestly, I slept through most of it. Until Hubby woke up at 4 am and noticed there was no power. And all my nightlights were off.

In some ways, I am a complete Southern Californian. I am not prepared for storms. Rock the earth, I’m good. Set half the world on fire, I’m okay. But pour some serious rain, crash some epic lightning and I am a total terrified pomeranian.

To quote my husband, “Break all the glowsticks and set the house on fire! YAY! We’re safe!”

Us SoCallers are not equipped for storms, least of all the gusher that came through here yesterday and probably more today. (In my defense, we get flash floods and I’ve actually seen an entire mountain turn into a waterdrop and completely pour over an entire block of houses in one second to the next.) He’s from the Phillipines. He’s used to typhoons and stuff, but there were moments yesterday when he admitted, it was a PI-worthy storm…Then it would stop as suddenly as it came. Give it an hour and it was dump buckets all over us again.

He gave me a keychain flashlight and got out of bed at 4am to find out how much of our area was blacked out. Turned out to be a good square mile, including the street lights. (Aren’t street lights–the red, yellow, green kind–supposed to be powered underground from a separate source? Hubby said it was scary out there with no lights to control traffic.) Possibly more. He came back with batteries, flashlights, candles and water–since our fridge dispenser wouldn’t be working. Oh, and without electricity, there’d be no hot water either. Can you hear the sob coming from my tiny, tiny violin?

Now you know why he brought donuts, too.

An hour later, the power came back on.

And I’m breathing again. Until, you know, the rain comes back.

A New Look…

February 25, 2014

So I’ve been bothered for a while with the way my site was looking. I still love the theme, but the changes I made as I adjusted for things that needed doing or replacing… It all got a lot washed out. Plus, I’d put that design in last summer and suffice it to say, Summer and Fall and most of the Winter have been months of misery for me, healthwise. I’m finally getting better and well, I needed a change. Something that reflected the light and darker sides of me and my work. (Also, anyone who sees this site isn’t going to be terribly shocked that I use the F-word in my books. Cuz I do. Probably more than my editors would like, lol.)

I’m sure there’s a few tweaks that need doing–I am still medicated, so please bear with me a bit–but overall I’m really happy with the results. :) Everything is easier to read and find. I’ll be adding to it as I go, so suggestions are welcome!

Whacha think? :)

Renaming History

February 19, 2014

So one of the quirks about me is that I’m constantly wondering if I have the first clue what I’m doing in my writing business. In business, at all. I’m a fairly standard creative type. Business doesn’t come easy to my brain. I love to cash checks but staying on top of the nickles and pennies isn’t my forte and making those decisions on what is trending or not is another of my not-very-instinctive tendencies. Which means I ask opinions of folks who are better at noting those kinds of things.

Recently, I have joined the ranks of authors who have been at this long enough to start getting rights back to my books. Which means I now have the option of putting them out in self-publishing or seeing if another publisher would like a crack at them.

MS_300In this case, I’m soon to be regaining the rights to my Midnight Trilogy and book 1, Midnight Sonata, will soon be back in my hands. Suffice it to say, I’ll be re-editing and creating a new cover.

The thing about re-issuing a book is that you get a chance to rewrite history a little, which is a huge temptation for an author. You can finally fix that typo that got past everyone and has been driving you crazy for seven years. Take out that paragraph that sounded good then but now that you know better, really shouldn’t be there. You can shave or shape characters as needed and tighten up that book for the better. Or just go James Cameron on that baby and throw in a tidal wave, just cuz you can.

I probably won’t go that far, but I am considering something very close. Renaming the book.

Tell me, readers, would that bother you? To see a previously published book re-issued with a new title? Or would you feel lied to?
