Reunited and It Feels So Good

It’s been a awhile since I’ve posted anything and with good reason. Things got extreme for a little while. I started a full time job and it took forever for them to find someone to work opposite shifts as me so I could go to part time. My brother-in-law,...

Book 2

I have my manuscript done. I’ve read through it and have done my edits. I’m more than halfway done with reading it to my husband so he can help me find anything that needs tweaking before sending it off to my publisher. The problem is… I don’t have a...

Progress

I made it past the halfway mark on my recent book. I have 40,000+ words written so far. I’m kicking butt! That said, I ran a Facebook ad with my book trailer, and I got my butt kicked. With 545 people watching at least fifteen seconds of my trailer,...

Oh, Sweet Victory!

My prodigal book has returned! Supernova is mine again. After being ripped off by my “co-publisher” and fighting for my rights back for about a year, I finally won. It was a hard battle, full of emotion and feelings of defeat, but I didn’t give up. In fact, I...
