Good morning to all you lovelies!! This weeks WIPpet comes from my newest novel that I'm writing, ASHES FALL. It's the third and final to the trilogy about James Matthews and is the sequel to FOREVER BURN. Enjoy!! This is the last 19 paragraphs (though most are really short because they're dialogue) to the prologue. … Continue reading #WIPpet Wednesday June 19, 2013 #wippeeters

Good morning! Guess what! Tomorrow is my birthday, so you're getting something extra special today. I'm currently editing the prequel to my novel that's out...this one is called DYING EMBERS. It's so exciting. I should have it done by the end of this week (in theory). Today you will get two scenes, the first is … Continue reading WIPpet Wednesday: June 5th, 2013
Each month I have a writers group meeting in Arlington, TX where we discuss what our monthly goals are. I think I might be a little overambitious this month, but I need to get it done. This group hasn't met since March, so it was great to finally get together again, with someone new AND … Continue reading Goals for June
I can't tell you how nervous I still get when emailing my publisher (or the fact that half the time I'm still in wonder about having a publisher!). I'm not kidding. My first book, FOREVER BURN, has been out since March 1, coming up on three months now, and it seems to be doing fairly … Continue reading Dying Embers: Take Two
Hey, y'all! (I can say that because I live in Texas!). It's Wednesday and that means two great things happen today. This is one! It's so exciting. It's WIPpet Wednesday, meaning this is a post about my WIP (Work In Progress) and connects in some way to the date. Lots of peoples are doing it, … Continue reading WIPpet Wednesday May 29th!
I finally put the collage together that I've been meaning to do. These are a few photos from people who bought "Forever Burn" and were kind enough to send me the photos of them holding it. I love the community, love, and care that this shows, and seeing all these smiling faces just makes me … Continue reading Forever Burn Collage
I just got home from one of the longest days at school. I'm looking forward to tonight and relaxing with a good friend and a great meal (that she's cooking for me!). So, I checked my mail and in it was a really small, inconspicuous letter. I open in up and WOW! I feel so … Continue reading Good things come in small packages…
Hey y'all (yes, I've been living in Texas far too long). This is a blog hop. Don't know what that is? Good, I didn't either for a bit. Basically, this is a way to learn about some awesome and cool indie authors. I answer a few questions and give them a shout-out! I want to … Continue reading The Next Big Thing: Blog Hop March 20, 2013
So...I finished writing my 85k word novel yesterday in a massive rush of typing away during spring break and now...now I'm not sure what to do. Spending so much time on one project, where my entire focus is only on that, is fantastic but when finished leaves a very odd feeling. It's like a large … Continue reading The Downward Spiral
Welcome! I had to cancel the original party due to the flu-like cold and ridiculously high fever I had. This one will NOT be canceled. I'm bound and determined that if even sick, I will still go! So, come and join me in celebrating the launch of Forever Burn. There will be cool swag that … Continue reading Book Lauch Party rehashed
This world has been crazy the past few weeks for me. I am writing, though not on fiction (unless you are atheist, then maybe it's fiction to you). I am sermonizing. It's actually quite like writing a short story. I'll share it when I'm done. I'm also adding in music to it. Secondly, if you … Continue reading Writing and Book Launching!
I need to preface this post with the fact that I am NOT against cursing in books. So, I am NOT against cursing in books. Have you every seen the movie "Good Will Hunting"? I read something recently where it started to turn into that movie. For the first ten pages there were no curse … Continue reading Fucking Fucks! (Cursing in exposition)
This is one of my favorite scenes. Mostly because James is extremely annoyed. ‘Mr. Sheriff’s Deputy with the extra smelly cologne’ had his hand on her leg and a soft look on his face. “You okay?” “Yeah, I’m fine.” Her brow narrowed and wrinkled between her eyes. It was a look she often gave when … Continue reading James meets Heath
meanie Katherine might possibly have made a few tears roll down my cheek. I don't know how I am blessed with such good friends, but thank you! Amazon.com: Katherine's review of Forever Burn.
February is fast and coming. AKA THAT'S TOMORROW! Yikes! I have two goals for Feb. I'm changing it up from my original goals because I need the help. So I have two goals, aside from my general school studies and actually being up-to-date with my readings. 1. Write my super secret project 2. Edit "Dying … Continue reading February Goals!
Good morning folks! (so long as you're on my side of the world). It's 9am and it's one of my favorite times of the day. This is the time of the day I spend editing =D. It's my favorite time because it's over and done with my noon. Today I'll be editing for someone else, … Continue reading Monday Morning

Launch date is set for March 1, 2013, and I can't stop doing the happy dance and grinning like a wicked crazy fool. I also got … Continue reading Hello!
