Changes are a-coming...

Happy Wednesday All! Time for another Blog Chain round. Amparo started today's round with this topic:

It's a new year, and some writers have taken it upon themselves to switch things up. *points at self* It might be the genres you write in or your revision process. It might be your main character's voice. What's one thing you've chosen to change in your writing this new year? Why do you wish to change it? If there's nothing you're going to change, why do you think it should remain as is?

Wow! This is a timely topic for me. I actually have made a rather LARGE decision related to writing - one I wasn't really going to utter out loud to any but my closest friends. Silly, I know...but I have been vacillating between stark terror and shame about this decision...both of which are silly. And untrue feelings.

In truth, I am thrilled about this decision. It is inline with my goals, matches what I want, and it the right move for me right now.

So, what is it you may ask?

Well... I've decided to dip my toe back into the query pond with my next project.

Some may wonder why? I mean, I'm published. I've ventured into the world of Indie/small presses with some success, yes. And it has been a fabulous experience.

But, for a while now I have felt a void - like there was something I was missing that I really wanted. A partner for the journey; someone to champion my work, push me, and bring connections I don't currently have...

And all of that is what finding the right agent will bring.

So, at some point later this year, once my current projects are ready, I will be dipping my toe back into the query pond. I will admit I am nervous - and excited!

Okay - that is my big news...what's yours? Changing anything up for 2013? For more on this topic, check out Sandra's from yesterday, and Katrina's post tomorrow.

Oh! And I am over at Jessica Bell's blog today, talking about saying goodbye to the Requiem Series. Stop bye and say hi!


  1. You go for it and be determined to be successful. You CAN do it.

    For me, the change comes at the end of March. I am hanging up the teaching career, relocating to Australia, and writing full time.

  2. Good luck and go for it! You're gonna shine!

    1. I'm strangely excited with the changes!

    2. I'm strangely excited to see where it goes :)

  3. That's a terrific reason for wanting an agent, seeking a partner in the process. Good luck to you, though I'm sure you won't need luck as you've got these beautiful books behind you already! Enjoy the hunt!

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…
