I'm a day late in posting this publishing update but better late than never...right? Okay, so a good bit has happened in the last week.
First of all, I got my book back from the proofreader with some very kind words about my book. I sent a blurb to my cover artist to add to the back of the book. My cover artist is amazing and got the updated back cover to me within two days. That's good when you take in the fact that I sent it to her on Friday and she got it back to me on Sunday night.

I didn't get as much reading done as I wanted to in May but it's because I got more writing done. My top book of the month is...

Okay, so some of you may have noticed that I did not give an update last week and that was because there wasn't anything to tell. I was still waiting to hear back from the editor. Then on Friday morning, I woke up with an email from my editor with a list of revisions she recommended changing. So, I got to work and spent all of Friday until like 1 am. working on revising. Then I woke up Saturday morning and continued working until I finished it and then sent it back to the editor for a final proofread.
Now, I'm back where I was last week. Just waiting to get my novel back from the editor again. A little good news is that the computer program that I used to write my book formatted it for me so I don't have to pay someone for that. That means that's one less thing I have to schedule and wait for, as well. Continue Reading
A year has passed since the infamous Boswell curse. The city of Greenwood all but buried any proof that it actually occurred. It is Halloween season, 1996, a time that brings joy and pranks by the dozen. But this season—it will bring something much darker than little kids running around in scary masks playing tricks and taking treats.
Greenwood will be faced with another egregious attack, but this time from malicious visitors from another world. Knowing that those unworldly visitors are not abducting Greenwood citizens by coincidence alone, a power-hungry FBI Special Agent in Charge sends his psychotic agent and his ethical rookie partner to silence those who know too much, and to keep the real story from going global…a story that would be catastrophic for not only the FBI, but for the entire country.
Jasmine, the tomboy whose heart is torn in half due to her high school crush having feelings for her best friend, isolates herself from both of them, heeding the advice from the very man who was sent to kill her—FBI agent Mason Arlovski.
The eccentric people of Greenwood will unknowingly rely on their favorite uncanny teens: Jasmine, Rose, Nathan, Jewel, and Rico to save them from violent abductions from beings with no earthly origins, but they will face a grim realization: one of them—will be taken.
It's Ella's senior year of high school and she and her best friend Linds plan to make it the best year ever. At Brock Cochran's end of summer pool party, the girls vow to have as much fun as possible before they head off to different colleges next fall. But when Ella is mysteriously attacked on her way home from the party, everything changes. Ella's carefree senior year plans disintegrate as she finds herself at the center of an attempted murder investigation.
Ella tries to move on, but her attacker isn't done yet. He shows himself in the form of horrifying signs and symbols: a clown mask strewn on her bed, a dead bird in her backpack, a shadow moving past her window in the night. And as the weeks pass, it turns out that Ella isn't the only one being tormented.
With the help of an old flame, Jensen Carver, and her friends and family, Ella tries to attain some sense of normalcy, but she can't seem to shake the feeling that there's a dark pattern hidden in the killer's every move. Suddenly, even those in her innermost circle seem suspicious. In her seemingly safe West Virginia town, Ella starts to wonder who she can trust. Continue Reading
Hello, all you beautiful people! For anyone that doesn't know I got a publishing deal with a small independent publisher. Even though I just got the email last week I've already been busy getting the ball rolling. I've learned a lot in the week that I have been working with this publishing team. So I decided to share what the process is like because I think it's something that a lot of people would like to know.
First of all, the imprint that I signed with is very small which I kind of like. It's like self-publishing with lots of help. I was too afraid to self-publish because I don't have the social media reach to promote myself the way a publisher can. So when I heard about this imprint I jumped at the opportunity to work with them. Sure, it's more expensive for me because I have to pay for things that I probably wouldn't with a traditional publisher. Like an editor, cover artist, the ISBN number and more. But like the saying goes you have to spend money to make money. Continue Reading
In every generation on the island of Fennbirn, a set of triplets is born—three queens, all equal heirs to the crown and each possessor of a coveted magic. Mirabella is a fierce elemental, able to spark hungry flames or vicious storms at the snap of her fingers. Katharine is a poisoner, one who can ingest the deadliest poisons without so much as a stomachache. Arsinoe, a naturalist, is said to have the ability to bloom the reddest rose and control the fiercest of lions.
But becoming the Queen Crowned isn’t solely a matter of royal birth. Each sister has to fight for it. And it’s not just a game of win or lose…it’s life or death. The night the sisters turn sixteen, the battle begins.
The last queen standing gets the crown.
A robber and a princess.
A girl disguised as a boy.
A medieval reimagining of the legend of Robin Hood packed with adventure, sacrifice and romance.
Robin Hood, hidden deep in the Sherwood Forest, is fighting to restore the crown to its rightful king, surrounded by faithful friends, green leaves and clear skies. Burdened with secrets, betrayal and an incredible responsibility, he struggles to stay alive and keep the starving people fed. One day, a boy saves him from the Sheriff’s poisoned arrows. Robin, impressed by the slender youth’s courage and skill, takes the boy with him to the forest.
Only, the boy is not a boy.
In the castle of Nottingham, a maid who used to be a princess is forced to obey the wishes of a tyrannical Sheriff. She dons on male clothes and trains to become a fierce assassin, vowing to catch the greatest criminal in the kingdom. But when she saves Robin Hood’s life nearly losing her own, she is rescued by the outlaws.
When Robin and the “boy” meet, two worlds collide, resulting in unimaginable danger and intense romance. Who will survive when they learn each other’s secrets? What happens when the assassin falls in love with her victim?
Filled with danger, intrigue and slow-burn passion, this is a Robin Hood story unlike any you have ever read before! Continue Reading
