Starting Strong

Happy New Year everyone! Mine rang in quietly with my youngest as my hubby crashed early (courtesy of the illness-of-doom) and my oldest was with friends. We watched movies and at midnight, yelled Happy New Year and banged pots with wooden spoons - a tradition from my grandmother's days. It was really nice. My daughter then went to her room and watched movies until dawn while I crashed on the couch.

Today brings a new year and the promise of new beginnings. I plan to spend it moving slowly (still getting over the crud), cleaning and just breathing. All good things.

One of my  traditions with a new year is to let go of regrets, reflect on the previous year, and set my intentions for the new year. Although I am a little late in getting these things done, I have released the past and am embracing an exciting, new future!

This year, I'm trying something a little different. While I always set goals - and did set a few this year - I wanted to change things up and try setting my intentions a bit differently. So, following some advice from a friend, I wrote this year's end of the year letter, highlighting my accomplishments of the year. THIS year.

What an empowering thing, speaking of your goals as though they are already accomplished.

Now, I know that goals and intentions without action mean very little, and I will be putting my business plan together throughout the month, but doing this first step - setting my intentions in such a positive way...

THAT is powerful!

Try it. And have an amazing start to the new year!

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…
