Ten Books You Might Have Missed in 2016

As 2016 winds down (thank god), I’m getting a little nostalgic. This year has seen the release of thousands of great titles–so many it’s hard to keep track of them all! If you’re anything like me, your TBR list is a mile long, and grows longer every day. Still… there are great books out there that you might have missed, and I want to share some of my favorites. All of these titles were published in 2016. Here they are…

I met people from Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois, South Carolina, Georgia, and many other places all in one afternoon! This event was also the first time I got a chance to meet specific fans of my work. In the past…

All the Details on My #CharmingGiveaway

I’m in the mood to “Celi-brate.” That’s a term my husband and I have for when we throw a dinner party or cocktail night, and it applies here, too. As you may know, my young adult novel, PRINCE CHARMING, will be republished by Booktrope this year. The company acquired it in March, and the story is getting a whole new look and a new rounds of edits. Geoff Miller’s story is getting some polish, and it’s been fun so far. What…

Takin’ Texas By Storm at RT

If you love books as much as I do, there’s no better place to be than at RT Booklovers Convention. I’ve heard about it for years, and I have a friend who always attends, but it’s never been in the cards for me, because the convention isn’t cheap. When you add in hotel, plane tickets, food, and more it’s on the pricier end.  This year, I got to attend it in Dallas, and I can assure you, it is worth…

Read Along With Me: Under the Influence

May’s book of the month is a brand new release–just out today! Under the Influence is a new adult story that is getting a lot of buzz. I’ve read a few other books by L.B. Simmons and thought they were great, so I can’t wait to try this one. She writes beautiful characters and tells soulful, insightful stories. Here’s the blurb: Dalton, I loved you once. A love I thought irrevocable. A love I mistakenly believed could transcend both time…

Fun Times at Aston Oaks Golf Club

A few weeks ago, my wonderful author friend, Mia Sheridan, graciously invited me to participate in a “wine and books” event at Aston Oaks Golf Club. No way would I turn that one down!

I think I speak for all of us when I say we had a…

What’s Up With WattPad

Let’s get real. I’m far from a perfect writer. On a good day, my prose is clunky, my characters flat, my scenes go nowhere, and my plots are a convoluted mess. Most days, I’m lucky eek out a few readable pages of a story. (Note: No one can beat up on themselves better that a writer. Truth is, we play with words for a living and often used them to slay ourselves. I consider myself a master at it. Even…

A Light in a World That Needs One

A lot happened last night after the grand jury’s decision to not indict Officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown. There is no doubt that we, as a nation, have a long way to go. A long way. It’s easy to despair right now. It’s easy to be angry. Hurt. Confused. Afraid. Frustrated. No matter what you believe about the case, those emotions are being felt by people of all walks of life today. I’d like to…
