How is your August going? Is it hot where you are? We are averaging 100+ degree days here in North Louisiana. Every. Damn. Day. I know everyone is about to go bonkers for pumpkin-spice everything, boots, scarves, and go Full Fall Festival Mode. (Note: Never Go Full Fall Festival Mode. Ever). Around these parts that kind of stuff happens, but it’s not as fun. We can have those same 100 degree days in October sometimes. Wear shorts at Thanksgiving. Sometimes even Christmas.

If you haven’t heard yet, I released a book on August 1st. I have been feeling a little overwhelmed, so took a step back from the website and newsletter. Probably not the best time for me to have a meltdown, but with everything else going on then something had to give. I’m thinking about adding a story to my newsletter though, so be sure you sign up. It might be a little naughty. Or it might be a clean, wholesome, family friendly story you can read aloud in front of small children.

And if you believe that, you might want to get your own mental health check, because I’ve already told my family that Changed was the only “nice” book that I’ll write. It’s definitely not my normal writing style. I tempered my style so much that sometimes it felt like I lost my voice as a writer, but I still feel like it was a story that needed to be told.

I am currently seeking beta readers. I have a critique partner for a Regency Romance I am writing, and I so appreciate what editors do for me now. It is so hard to do! I got great feedback from both of mine, and hopefully I am giving valuable feedback in return. I’ve had a beta before, but never had the whole symbiosis thing going. I need some beta readers for a New Adult series I began last year. I plan on submitting the first part of Book 1 to a contest. I can’t decide which story to work on first, but am trying so hard to focus on the Regency story. But who knows! Maybe those Thornton brothers will win me over.

Also, I need authors and readers in my Facebook Group. I would like to build the group up so that we can do giveaways, and that authors and readers can interact.

Don’t forget to sign up for the newsletter if you want something nice! Or something naughty 😉

7 DAYS!

7 days.png

 

All three people reading this are probably excited. Maybe not as excited as I am, but still, pretty darn excited!

If I can get my print file uploaded on time, I may release a few days early.

I’m heading out of town soon and won’t have access to HSI until I get back, so who knows what is going to happen?!?

I certainly didn’t expect to fall down the stairs yesterday and twist the hell out of my ankle, but there you go. Crutches suck, by the way.

Hopefully nothing is broken. Would be nice if the radiologist got back with me, but I can wiggle my toes, so it’s probably fine.

Anyway, if you haven’t done so yet, come join my Facebook Page & Author group, where I will be doing giveaways once the book is live.

Changed – Coming August 1st, 2018

It is getting closer to release day, and I’m getting anxious. This will be my first release, and I am so afraid I’m going to screw something up that the stress is for REAL. I will be doing pre-Orders soon, publishing through Draft 2 Digital for all vendors except for Amazon. I don’t want to lose sales/rankings in Amazon, so I will be publishing directly through KDP and KDP Print.

So much to do! Anne at Victory Editing helped me tremendously by finding a cover designer, and I purchased a Pre-Made from Cover Me, Darling LLC. They have the most beautiful covers. I wish I had time to write all the books so I could has (yes, has) all the covers, but I don’t.

Here is a teaser for the cover. Hopefully once formatting is complete I’ll get the short links created and get everything squared away with D2D and the ‘Zon.

And I wouldn’t have made it this far without Anne @ Victory Editing doing significant hand holding. I appreciate her so much!

Cheers, and everyone have a fantastic Thorsday!

I began writing this novel in 2013. I had long been frustrated by the handling of my own diagnosis of Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser (MRKH syndrome) at the age of fifteen. I struggled with it for years. I ignored it for longer. [Insert years of depression, suicidal thoughts, feelings of inadequacy/jealousy/rage/rage/rage] here. I won’t bore you with the details. I wrote 200K+ words in a novel that has been ripped up, smashed back together, and pared down to a final product that I am proud of. If that doesn’t say frustration nothing will.

This isn’t based on a true story. My life, for the most part, is too boring to be recounted in a book, and I’ll let Changed speak for itself. The tentative release date will be August 1st. Hopefully by then I will have all my ducks in a row. I’ll be creating links for pre orders, and try to figure out Amazon’s platform as well as others.

To all the girls out there dealing with this condition: It does get better. You are strong, and you are NOT alone. You are one in five thousand.
