Psst. Look here!

I have some THINGS to share. Weird little things that I find interesting and have been meaning to mention, but haven’t. So here I am. Finally sharing.

Thing 1: If you like Day-in-the-Life style snippets featuring characters from older books, make sure you’ve signed up for my newsletter. I have a TON of off the cuff scenes and stories I’ve written over the years that I’m going to push out to newsletter subscribers once I get them polished up a bit. A TON, guys. So many.

Thing 2: If you’ve read one of my books, please consider leaving a review. Not only does it give an author (me!) a boost, it also helps other readers discover books and series. Reviews can have such a tremendous impact and I’m grateful for every one. (Even the not-so-great ones. Really.)

If you’re hesitating because you think you don’t have time to write out something deep and profound or you just don’t know what to write, short and sweet is just as valid as more in-depth. Seriously. You can just say you enjoyed the characters and liked their interactions or you thought the sexy times were so smokin’ you had to take a five-minute breather after reading.

I’m pretty sure the way to an author’s heart is through reviews. Or maybe that’s just me.

Thing 3: Do you remember what I said above about all those scenes and short stories I’ve accumulated over the years? Well, September’s release is going to be a box set of the Anderson High Wolves series WITH BONUS SHORT STORIES. I’m working on the cover now and then I just need to format the whole shebang and do the administrative stuff to get it out there. I’m aiming for this weekend for the release, but nothing’s official yet. I just like to have goals for myself.

So. Newsletter, short stories, reviews, upcoming release. That about covers things. You know, unless I remember something two seconds after I post this. Which happens. Welcome to a writer’s brain! It’s messy in here.

What I’m reading…

I meant to do this post LAST week, but I got distracted. By a full series reread of J.C. Daniels’ Colbana Files series. (Which I CONSTANTLY refer to as the Kit Colbana series when telling people about it. Oops.) So…what am I reading? A lot of urban fantasy. Starting with the aforementioned Colbana Files series, […]

What I’m reading (the binge-worthy edition)…

I’m in full-on read-a-thon mode this week (Bout of Books, YO!) and I’ve been reading up a storm (and dabbling in a weird series of short scenes on the writing end, but that’s another story for another post. Maybe.). Reading is GOOD. FUN. EXCITING. Especially when you pick up a BIG series you’ve never read […]

What I’m reading…

I’m co-hosting the Bout of Books read-a-thon next week (PLENTY of time to sign up, if you’re interested!) and I *might* have gone a little crazy with an older series that’s been on my Kindle for AGES. See, I was trying to save my newer reads for the read-a-thon, so I picked up this older […]

The final Wicked Pride book is COMING SOON!

That’s right, kiddos! Laid Bear has been submitted to the various retailers for preorder and it will officially go live August 23rd! *pulls out the confetti gun* *fires it indiscriminately* *moves on* As often tends to happen, some retailers are slower at getting preorders up than others. So it might take a while before ALL […]


Looking back on July…

Looking back on July…

GOODBYE, JULY! I’ll miss how productive I was with you! How productive was I? you wonder. DON’T WORRY! I’LL TOTALLY TELL YOU! July being a Camp NaNo month, I committed to writing 30K words. Which is…pretty much what I write normally in a month. So I wasn’t really stretching myself or anything with that goal. […]
