Tough week.

Sports practice x 2 teams and 4 kids… normal household stuff, meetings, appointments, etc. Add into that a tragic death in the (extended) family and I’m exhausted. I’m headed to Tucson for the weekend to work my horse races, then from there I’ll be headed back to my home town for a funeral. I hate that it takes a funeral to bring my family from all the corners of the earth but I’ll enjoy seeing them again.

How was your week?


Tucson Festival of Books 2015 recap.

I went, I saw, I conquered.

Well, not quite, but close. I planned things very carefully. I went over the schedule and chose the sessions I wanted to attend. Nearly all had to do with improving my writing.. but I will admit I went to the first one, with Catherine Coulter, simply because I’ve read her since I was a teen and loved her… Not that the topic wasn’t relevant to what I write, it was Thriller and Suspense Heroes. And while I may not (so far) have much thriller or suspense, I do have what I consider heroes.

I learned about writing better, marketing, writing faster and many other things that I’m going to have to share with the people I know.

Did you go? Do you have something similar in your area?


Next Title Announcement…

Are you ready? Do you want to know about my next release?

Well, here’s some details:

Release Date is July 21, 2015.

I plan on doing a cover reveal on April 6, 2015

It’s a contemporary romance. No paranormal, no fantasy involved.

And the title is….

Drum roll please….

Choosing Happiness


I’d dance naked

around the house but my teenagers have people over and it would embarrass them.

Why am I so happy? Because I sent book 8 off to my editor this afternoon! I also sent all the info to my cover designer too… know what that means? I have a title! How long should I wait before I share that with you?


My week in review…

What have I done? Not a whole lot… I am working on the last revision before I send the next book to my editor… I still need to finalize my title and have a cover made….

Also, I’ve discovered some slightly damaged books in my inventory so I’m giving them away…. Stop on over to my Facebook page and leave a comment HERE to enter. I’m leaving it open all weekend so you’ve got some time.

I’m having a hard time believing it’s the end of February already, but here it is… What have you been up to?


First monthly Yuma Author Social meal.

We had ours tonight. While the turnout wasn’t as high as I hoped, I had a really great time. We ate and visited and talked shop without any real agenda. I am much looking forward to lunch next month and dinner again the month after. I’m hoping for a better turn out as we continue.
