Alive…

Alright, so it’s Wednesday. How has your week been good so far???

Mine has been pretty good, and while I’m waiting to hear back from my betas about Mine to Steal, I’ve been busy plotting out the next book that I’ve been working on. This one came to me a while back and I’ve been sitting on it, despite it’s incessant poking at me while I work on other things.

It has a title!

It has a cover!

It even has a synopsis!

BUT….here’s the kicker….this one is being kept close to the vest until I’ve completed it. I’m scared to write it. I’m nervous about what people will think. However, I think I’m more scared of what I will think.

So, in the meantime, when I blog, I will focus on sharing Mine to Steal teasers and information. And if I can get someone who is willing to let me interview them soon, I will share another Author Spotlight. I miss those….but everyone has been so busy, they haven’t had time to take me up on the offer. (Soon…very soon.)

And just to let you know, Being There, my first novel, is on sale right now on Amazon for $.99! The sale is limited, so be sure to get your copy soon and please please PLEASE be sure to leave a review. If you love a story, the best compliment you can pay the author is a review!

I suppose that is all I have for now. Aren’t you glad you checked it out??? LOL! Thanks so much for stopping by this week and hope the rest of your week kicks ass!!

Hey! Baby…

Happy Wednesday!! HUMP – DAAAAAYYYYY!!

Yesterday was a busy day because I had some things to take care…the biggest being that I needed to re-reveal my new book cover.

WHAT!?!?!

Yeah, as it turns out, I started seeing more books with the same couple, and same pose on their book. Who can blame them, they make a GORGEOUS cover!! I really loved my version of the cover, but I felt it best to revamp and reveal a NEW cover. Of course I was disappointed because…I LOVED IT, and it was already out there. But since Mine to Steal doesn’t release for another month, I decided that I have time to get a new cover.

(Give me a sec….)

That didn’t take long. 😛

Thanks to some advice from my girl Amy Queau (who is freakin’ awesome!) I have a new cover that – I can’t believe I’m going to say this and totally mean it:

I LOVE MORE THAN THE ORIGINAL!

What are your thoughts on seeing the same couple appear on numerous book covers? Did I make the right decision in revamping the above title??

OH YEAH!!! I said it was a busy day! I heard back from two of my betas (amazing women that I appreciate so much) and based on their feedback, I’ve been working on some rewrites that are adding so much to the story. I can’t wait to finish these up and send it to a couple of more people before it goes to the editor. I better get back to it…another busy day ahead! 

As always, thanks for stopping by! ❤

😎 Hey! Baby by Bruce Channel. It’s my jam today! 

The Waiting Room…

HELLO!!!

^^^That’s shouty caps for….H E L L O!!!! 😉

Yesterday was a big day for me because I finished my 3rd book! Mine to Steal is now complete and in the hands of some wonderful wonderful people who are going to provide their feedback because they are, well, WONDERFUL! (Let the freakout commence: is it good enough? will they like it? should I have changed that one part?)

*Exhale* – letting it go. 

I have enjoyed spending the last 3 months (yes, 3) with Trey. It was definitely different to write this book than the last two, but challenging in the best way. This story took several unexpected turns that were not planned, but I rolled with it and *think* it’s better for it. Sometimes we plan things and they don’t work out, but the end result is so much better. I sincerely hope that’s the case with this one. ❤

I never posted a teaser for this week because I was working on finishing the last two chapters, but I do have one.

I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who’s kept up with this blog while I write. In the next few weeks, Mine to Steal will be in the hands of my editor with an anticipated release of late May. I’ll keep you posted. 😉

As always, thanks for stopping by!

😎 “The Waiting Room” – Sixpence None The Richer (The title was appropriate for my position) 

BOOM…

I needed to take a short break from finishing up Mine to Steal to write a blog post. 

As I said yesterday, the last time I posted was on March 20. There’s been quite a bit that’s happened since then. What, you might ask? Well, I’ll tell you. 🙂

While writing Mine to Steal, I stumbled upon TWO new stories. I have them plotted out and ready to start as soon as I finish Trey’s story. One is another love story, but the other is dark. I have to admit, the darkness scares me, but I feel this pull to go there. We’ll see where it leads. They each have titles, but I’m not revealing them until there’s more to tell…just in case I decide not to tell the story at all. 

Aside from that, I’ve spent five of the last ten working days, in a coffeehouse writing, because it seems that I am unable to write from home. But I’ve knocked out quite a bit there, which makes me incredibly happy. Mine to Steal, more importantly, TREY, is coming along nicely. I had an epiphany last week and the rest of the story unfolded in front of me. Needless to say, HAPPY FACES all around. 🙂 🙂 🙂 This book will be ready for BETA by the middle of next week….at the latest. 😎
