Mystery of Love…

This Monday, my Blog Tour hosted by Back Off My Books, ended. I am so grateful to Jenn for everything she did to put this together; she was fantastic. If you didn’t stop by last Thursday to the Live event, host by RMWTPC‘s Lisa, you missed out. Let’s just say there was Truth or Dare, pics of Texas, and definitely some TK torture…but there were also giveaways! It was so much fun and I got to chat with some great people. If you were one of them, THANK YOU for stopping by. ๐Ÿ™‚

Since the tour ended, I have been BETA-reading a few books (awesome books that I can’t wait to come out) and have been staring a the flashing cursor on my screen.

Yup…just staring. I have drafted, outlined, rewritten, scratched out, made notes and still nothing. I have been stuck and it’s been killing me. How am I ever going to publish the book, if I can’t even finish it. As I told my CPs, I am having brain to computer issues. I see it playing out, but I can’t write it out. Make sense?

Mine to Lose ~ Notes

Mine to Lose ~ Notes

That problem was solved yesterday when I cleared my desk, put a song on repeat, got out my notecards and went for it. Not sure what was different between this time and ALL the other times I have tried to work it out, but this time, it clicked. I wrote note after note for two hours and when I was done, I had the entire thing complete! Working through the issues that were blocking me lifted a huge weight off my shoulders, and motivated me to get moving. I was attached to my desk chair for hours, only stopping to eat and say goodnight to the kiddos. By the time I called it a night and shut down last, I had over 2k new words written, another chapter complete and a huge smile on my face.

So, that being said, my focus is on finishing Mine to Lose and I hope that when it’s done, you will love it. I couldn’t stop smiling last night, because I fell in love with Ryan, Emogen’s boyfriend, all over again. I’m so happy, in fact, that I’ve posted a small teaser below:

Thank you for reading today’s post. Hopefully the teaser did just that….and maybe you’ll check back next week to see what other little snippets I’ll share. I promise, there WILL be another teaser. Who knows, maybe you’ll hear from Trey….he’s kinda great, too.

Don’t forget, during the month of October, 10% of sales from Being There will be donated to The Rose in Houston, Texas, in support of Breast Cancer awareness month!! Click HERE to buy your copy and help a great cause!

One final note: be sure to check back tomorrow or Friday, because one of my FAVORITE authors will be my featured spotlight. Want to know who it is? Check back ๐Ÿ˜‰

Another is Waiting…

Since my last post, I’ve had a busy, and exciting week.

This weekend, I got to go to the Austin Author Signing, where I got to fangirl over the likes of Colleen Hoover (who had Griffin Petersen with her a.k.a. Holder), Molly McAdams, Tamara Webber and more!

As excited as I was to see these amazing writers, I was just as excited to FINALLY meet my fellow indie authors, R. Jean Wilson & Britney King!!! Oddly enough, as chilly as it was outside, hanging with R. Jean and Lance (her sweet bf, who waited along with us), the time passed rather quickly. As many times as we have texted and chatted, meeting was a million times better and I felt like I’ve known her forever. It was funny to find out that there were other indies there that I didn’t know about until after the fact, so we’ll have to make sure we fix that next time…like say at the Houston Book Rave???

It really was an amazing weekend, and I’m so happy my hubby and daughters drove me up so I could fangirl! And really glad his sis happened to be there too so she could keep them busy. Lol.

So that was last week….


Today begins the Being There blog tour, hosted by Jenn from Back off My Books. This woman is amazing and has lined up some great bloggers who are participating. Please check it out, because there is a new blog everyday. There are giveaways, goodies and fun on the way, so I hope to see you there!

And remember that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and 10% of every copy of Being There sold, during October, will be donated to The Rose, in Houston. This organization provides quality breast healthcare to all women. To learn more, go check their websiteย http://www.therose.orgย and see how amazing they are. To get your copy of Being There, 1-click on Amazon and support a great cause.

I suppose this is all for this week’s blog post. Thanks for reading and sharing and just being really great! I appreciate the messages that I get on Facebook, all of you are just….AWESOME!

THANK YOU! The response has been overwhelming and distracting, because I should be writing. ๐Ÿ™‚
I’m also excited to announce that last weekend

Being There

hit #4
on the Amazon “Love & Romance” best seller list!!

Blown away, doesn’t even reach what I’m feeling. Again, THANK YOU!

What’s Coming Up:

  • Jenn from Back Off My Books, will be hosting a blog tour for Being There next week! There are some wonderful bloggers participating, so hopefully you’ll check them out. I will be sure to post more when it happens.
  • I’m still working on Mine to Lose, which I hope to send out for editing at the end of the month. This story has taken turns that were not expected, so I’m beating my head, and crying, as I write. Hopefully I will be able to share some teasers soon.
  • There will be a new Author Spotlight tomorrow, Ms. Michelle Escamilla will share a little of herself with us, and I’m looking forward to that!
  • ONE MORE THING!!! Have you read Perfect Regret from A. Meredith Walters? If not, you need to….go 1-click now!!! I read it in one night, because honestly, I love everything she writes. I laughed and cried and didn’t want it to end, but as all things do…

I know I have more, and I would love to share, I really would. But I need to get back to visiting with Emogen from Mine to Lose, so I can figure out what is going on with this girl. She’s a bit of a mess, and stubborn, but I love her! (It’s easy to see why people are drawn to her.) She has two pretty amazing, and completely different guys giving her attention, but only one has her heart. She just needs to tell me who it is! She’s actually quite frustrating at the moment.

Thanks for reading! And, if you were curious about the title, The Avett Brothers released their new album yesterday,ย (click here)ย Magpie & the Dandelion. I have LITERALLY listened to Vanity over 100 times already. It is my favorite song! My husband is teasing me because I sing it non-stop, and not quite well. ๐Ÿ™‚

Until maรฑana!


The NEW cover of Being There.

Being There

As you most likely know,ย October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This is a devastating disease that affects so many around the world. We all know someone who has been touched by some form of cancer, and I wanted to do my small part. During the month of October, I will be donating 10% of all sales from my book, Being There, to an organization that offers complete breast healthcare for all women. If you haven’t read my book yet, NOW would be a great time to pick it up, and support a wonderful cause.

Please spread the word and help me raise money to donate to this fabulous organization!

Thank you so much! ๐Ÿ˜‰
