A Year In Review: 2014

2014


In 2012, my husband and I bought a leather-bound notebook for our first New Year as husband and wife. Every New Year's Eve, we planned to write the best parts of the year and what we look forward to for the next year. I thought it would be fun to look back on in the future. We have kept the tradition alive so far and I love going back and reading what we wrote while partying with our friends, waiting for the ball drop on the TV. 

This year has been a very exciting and interesting year for me. My first novel released on my birthday, March 21st. Navigating the world of self-publishing was terrifying and exciting at the same time. I compiled a two-inch binder of research, articles and manuals to help me publish my own work. 

I learned a great deal while writing, submitting and selling my novels. I experimented with different tools and learned some lessons the hard way. Every failure was appreciated because I gained some new knowledge from it in the end. I don't think there is a clear right or wrong way to do what I do. I think it's something everyone has to learn for themselves and every story is different.

Shaken: Conflicted Encounters #3

Shaken

Releasing February 24th!


Get ready for Scarlett's story!
You know her as Ryder's crazy and lovely twin-sister. Now it's her turn!



“After an earthquake wreaks havoc, the earth is left disturbed and altered. Whatever remains in ruin is left shaken and in need of rebuilding.”

Scarlett Brooks doesn't need love. The only men she can trust in her life are her twin brother and his two best friends, Logan and Caleb. Every other guy has only let her down, and she promises herself to never to experience heartbreak again.

Logan King can't stand back and watch his best friend's twin sister continue to spiral out of control. With random hookups, drunken nights, and reckless decisions, she is on the path to self-destruction. He sets out to slow her down and prove that she isn't happy with her one-night stands.

The two come dangerously close to crossing lines. Is Scarlett capable of trusting and opening up to love again? Will it ruin their friendship if Logan is the one to teach her how? 


This is part of a series but can be read as a standalone. Characters are introduced in Jolted and Impacted.

Available September 23rd!


Ryder


Kallie worked on her laptop while I browsed through the billion channels she had. I doubted she had time to even look through all of them, let alone watch them. I tried to stop glancing at her ankle. The swelling went down a little, but it was turning purple and blue. I wished she would get it checked it out, but she wasn't going to do that. I listened to her tap away at the keyboard and finally settled on a Batman movie. She clicked and typed away, texting on her phone and going through files of papers.
