Tip Tuesday - Finding My Way

What a month. Or Two. 2 books launch, 2 more covers revealed, a new job, and more sekrit projects I can't wait to share.

Just WOW.

This is all good - amazing really. And yet, how am I, really?
In truth, not good.

Why? Because I am exhausted. Spent. Drained.

I've been so busy for so long. And I forgot something very important.

Balance.

You know, the thing that helps us stay grounded when the rollercoaster of life has decided to go a little too fast.

So, I've spent the last few days contemplating my road, the things I've committed to, and how to streamline my life; how to find my balance again.

First, I pulled out of some of the forums and blogs I participated in...just for my sanity.

Second, I made a decision about this blog. I keep saying I am going to pull back, but I never do. I set this blog up as a 5 day a week blog, and I struggle doing less than that (I am such a rule follower!). So, the only way I am making a decision to pull this blog back to two days a week, with the occasional Bookanista post. I am just too busy not to do this.

So, from this day forward, I will be posting on Tuesdays and Fridays. WOOT!!!

Thank you all for being so loyal and so supportive to my blog and my writing. Hopefully this will free up a little bit of time and help strengthen my balance.

What do you guys do when you find yourselves overextended?

Oh! And in case you didn't hear...I released the cover for LIBERA ME, the next book in the series. You can see it on Tiffany Mahaffy's blog. And Heather McCorkle and I will be doing a chat tonight at 5pm PST, talking about our books, writing, and giving some things away. I hope you join us!

  1. That sounds like an excellent idea. I had to pull back recently too and reduce the amount of blogging I do. It has helped a lot!

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…

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…
