The Calm Before the Storm...Yea, Right!

You know, even typing that title made me spew. I mean seriously? Calm?...

I "thought" things would be a little calmer as I approached the release of Transcend. NOPE. On Friday I mentioned that I was knee-deep into three projects - two I hoped to finish this past weekend. I also mentioned the tours, release parties, etc. going on..
What I didn't say, is that I am completely insane for thinking I could get this all accomplished.
I mean, just look at this schedule of to-dos for THIS WEEK:

  • 9/3-9/7 - Davidson Institute workshop presenter (all weekend/ online, but still)
  • Finish my edits for Girls' Book by Weds and turn in for first edits (yea, this is past due. Just sayin)
  • Finish final edits for Transcend (This is DONE DONE DONE. and the e-arcs have all been emailed. Whew)
  • First round edits on Libera Me to editor. (cough...not going to happen...cough)
  • Work on two back-to-back tours
  • Mail a TON of swag and books
  • Prep for 9/18 launch day online parties
  • Take kids to tutoring, work, soccer, band, etc, etc, etc
  • Work 7:30-5:30 (yea, that is longer than my hours, but it is the hours I typically work)
  • Breathe. In and out. Over and Over.
Crazy, yes...

I know it sounds like I am complaining, but I'm not. I am just a tad overwhelmed. Okay I am a LOT overwhelmed. But, things will all get done, because they have too. Right
(please say right)

Anyways, as you can tell by the schedule, blogging this week...yea, not gonna happen. At all. And rather than stress over it, I am just going to tell you all that blogging isn't happening for a week. I promise to be back next week thought, with lots of progress to report (I Hope)

What do you all do when you are a "little" busy?


  1. I GOT YOUR BACK!!! I will help in every way possible ((HUGS)) I know (and understand) that you are totally stressed right now but it will get better. I when I am to busy write a list and figure out what "NEEDS" to be done and what I "WANT" to get done then go from there. You are awesome and you will get it all worked out and figured out <3 Let me know if I can help at all :)

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…
