Tomorrow Starts My New Reality

I have always been a firm believer in fate.  There has always been something inside me that gave me a nudge in the right direction.

These nudges became a downright pounding on my gut when I started writing.  I kept fighting them, because there is NOTHING scarier than putting something in your brain down on paper and handing that over to someone else. Well, being inside my brain could also be pretty terrifying, but that is a whole other story.

There are a few places that I have walked into and felt like I fit in.  One of them happens to be an online community of woman that I met through my love of books. I started talking to them in the middle of the day, when I couldn't stand the thought of one more boring day folding laundry, and in the middle of the night when I couldn't sleep.  Women from all over the world came together to create a glorious group that helped me remember what I loved to do.  Write.

Tomorrow my first ever book, A Love Worth Biting For, goes live.  Some people will love it, and some people will hate it, and still others will get a smile on their face which is all I could ever ask for.

Tomorrow I get to become an author.  I get to do something I dreamed about as a little girl locking up my Lisa Frank journal with the butterfly key.

Thank you to everyone who let me into your online family, you gave me my dream.  Tomorrow, let's all sit down and read something naughty.  I hope I give you a little something to shift in your seat over.  I hope I make you smile.

I will be grinning from ear to ear.

Join in the hybrid fun and buy A Love Worth Biting For at


Barnes & Noble


Samhain Publishing

And many other ebook retailers who know how to have a good time. ;p

I will be toasting my new career all over the internet.  Find me on FB, Twitter, and chatting with Mary Hughes over at her blog.

Getting Rear-Ended...and NOT in a Good Way

Guess what this is...go ahead.  Guess.

Torn wrapping paper?

Strange looking Jell-O?

Melted lipstick?

I wish.  

No, folks.  That is the bumper on my car.  A city truck slammed into me on the highway.  I have only been in one other accident before, and I was a lot younger.  Obviously age changes things, because it feels like more than my vehicle is trashed.  

I am working on projects, but thanks to some fun medications, my attention span is smaller than a kid walking through their favorite toy store.

With just over two weeks until my first book releases, to say this is a bad time is an understatement.  

I have been bouncing around on the Samhain Publishing best-sellers lists in Comedy and Vampires.  To see my book up there with Mary Hughes, Vivi Andrews, and Sierra Dean was amazing.  For everyone who pre-ordered my book I want to say thank you.  You've had me smiling through my prescribed haze.

I am working on some blog appearances to kick off the release.  

Some of the upcoming stops are...

September 17th - Guest Spot and Giveaway at Something Wicked (Thanks to Angie Fox for letting me invade!)
September 26th - Character Post and Giveaway at Scorching Book Reviews
September 30th - Guest Spot and Giveaway at Bookie Nookie Reviews
October 1st - RELEASE DAY! 
                        Guest Spot and Giveaway with Mary Hughes at her Blog

There may be more coming up as we get closer, so make sure to check out my website for the up-to-date list.

I would say I popped a cork to celebrate, but with all the back  medications I am on, I actually just drank some water and smiled really big.

Thanks for the smiles.
