Friday Five....Is it the Weekend Already???

I can't believe it is Friday already! I mean really....where on earth did the week go??? I distinctly remember prepping for this week, making certain I had everything ready to go....
and now...
poof! The week is over.

But enough about my time-space continuum problems, let's get to my Friday musings:

  1. Have you seen the new campaign challenge? Holy Smokes! It is a tough one. And yes, I will likely participate if I can figure out what I'm writing (not to mention what the words we need to use mean). Go check out the people who've participated already - their entries are pretty impressive.
  2. I received 3 awards in the last week. Yep, three. Sometime next week I will try to get these awards out to some new bloggers. I have found some really fabulous new blogs out in the interwebz, so I am actually looking forward to sharing.
  3. I am really lousy and "resting" a bit in between projects. No really, I am. The whole time I'm trying to let my creative juices chill a bit, I'm thinking "I should be working on something." "What's next?" My poor CPs, I don't know how they put up with me? Do you ever have that problem?
  4. You already know my week was a tad insane - they all are. But check out this "analysis" of my work week - I conducted 5 presentations, assessed 3 children, answered 585 emails, consulted on 15 cases, attended well over 20 meetings, wrote three reports, talked with a minimum of 10 wonder I am exhausted!
  5. TRANSCEND is in the world! That's right. I have received some fabulous feedback from my CPs and Betas (they are AMAZING, BTW - all of them), I've done some tweeking (not as much as I feared, thank goodness) and my query is now out in the world. Whew....this has been a very long time coming, I'll tell you. And I am actually EXCITED!!! It feels fun to get back in the game. Curious what the project is about? Here is a blurb:
All seventeen-year-old composer Ien Montgomery desires is to find his muse – someone to ease the burdens of his family’s rigid expectations and the recent death of his older brother. When he meets a beautiful violin-prodigy, Kiera McDougal, his music takes on new life. With her, he imagines a future outside of his parents” control. That is, until a horrible accident tears them apart.
Sent to die in a sanatorium, Ien’s obsession for Kiera grows unbearable. Tortured by thoughts he can’t escape and the truth of his monstrous disfigurement, he flees, desperate to exact revenge on the people that ruined his life – his parents. But, vengeance is empty. Betrayed by those closest to him, Ien discovers that the price for his happiness may just be his sanity.      
Well, that's it for me. What has your week been like???

OH! And today is the LAST DAY to enter for a copy of Michelle Davidson Argyle's Thriller, MONARCH. Click here for the deets. Have a great weekend!


  1. Your week sounds so busy no wonder the time swept right on by. Seems the busier you are, the less time you have.

    And TRANSCEND sounds amazing and haunting at the same time. Sending you lots of hopes, prayers and wishes for a great response from agentland.

  2. LOL, I KNEW most of that stuff, but it still overwhelmed me reading it! And YES that campaign challenge IS crazy! I'm gonna do it too, especially since it's a worthy punishment since I missed the first one ;)

  3. YAY for TRANSCEND! I'm sending you all kinds of happy query vibes!

It's Release Day!

Wow! This post was a long time coming. My 6th novel (and 17th book), OUTBREAK, book #2 in the Solomon Experiments, is officially out day.

This is a special release for me. I had struggled to find my fiction mojo after my last book. Related to what was going on in my personal life and some residual feelings about my mother's death, it took me nearly 2 years to reconnect with my inner artist. The struggle was worth it, though, as I figured out some things about myself as an artist that I needed.

Now, I hope all of you will enjoy the book as much as I've enjoyed writing it.

OUTBREAK is the continuing story of Dakota, an 18 year old girl wrestling with her new awareness of abilities that make her the target of a black ops group. Here is a little more about the story:

Dakota never thought she’d crave her old life in Boresville. Not until the Creator’s assassins came and took everything, everyone, she cared about—all except for David. He’s the only thing she has left, and he wants he…

Collide and Transcend in Audio Format

Wow - it has too long since my last post! A lot has happened over the past few months. First, I've decided to re-launch my entire backlist. What does this mean? New covers, new interiors, and, in some cases, new and expanded stories. It also means releasing the books in audiobook format. Audiobooks are something I've wanted to do for a while. And now it is finally happening.

In December, I released the audiobook formats of Transcend and Collide - each with new covers and new interiors in the digital and print versions. I plan on revealing the new covers for the rest of the Solomon Experiment series (the sequels to Collide) later this month, with the actual books coming in late Feb and March/April.

In Spring, I will begin the re-launch of the Requiem series, including significantly expanded stories for books 2 and 3, new covers, new titles and audiobook formats.

I don't plan on only re-releasing books in 2016. In addition to the two new books in the Solomon Experiments, I ha…
