My first anthology piece with three other NEW authors is up for pre-order at Amazon! The release date is October 31st on Halloween day!
“Deathly Ever After” is my short little horror tale included in the anthology. Here’s the summary:
Three young high school girls live out the last day of their torture and murder over and over again. Lanie starts to realize that they have been caught in this nightmare, and she wonders if there’s any way she can break free and save her friends.
Please find the Kindle version ready at Amazon! The paperback version will be out shortly as well. I will let you all know when that’s up.
I hope you all enjoy it and please support us indie authors by leaving a review either at Amazon or Goodreads!
Thanks and Happy Halloween!

Well, I finally released another story. It’s been a rough few years since I released “Unbridled” in 2014.
We’ve packed up, sold a house, bought a house, moved, I got pregnant, had a beautiful baby girl, changed jobs, gone through some financial struggles – but now I finally am getting into a routine where I can seriously work on my books again.
This is a short story prelude to an upcoming series about a modern take on the Greek Furies. Available for pre-order and free on KU!
Please add it to your to-read list on Goodreads as well!
I officially submitted my short story Mod Fury to Kindle Publishing today and am now waiting for the pre-order to go live! The pre-order date is coming soon!
Waiting is the hard part. Stay tuned for more information!
Happy Ostara! Happy Spring!
I’m hoping 2017 will be good for me to do some spring cleaning. I have already begun my Great DeCluttering of 2017 and 2018, where I’m making goals for myself – read all the books and empty one bookshelf by end of 2017 and sell the books. Unfortunately I tend to accumulate more books. I don’t know how that happens…
I did clean out one shelf so that’s good. If anyone is my friend on Goodreads you’ll see a mass addition of “read” books in the coming year. Next I want to clean out closets again, especially the baby’s as she grows out of clothes, and then start on the kitchen with dishes that we don’t really use. My friend and I intend to have a garage sale soon, so I’m gathering up stuff in boxes in a place in the garage for when that happens. I just hope the weather gets nicer so I can go out and start pricing things.
Speaking of kid’s clothes, I have another friend who’s expecting a boy soon and she’s always lamenting how boys clothes are not at cute as girls clothes, and it’s funny because I’ve kind of felt that both clothes are cute, and I’ve wanted to buy my daughter boys clothes before, and we have, but clothes with dinosaurs, super heroes, and power rangers on it were cute too, and made me miss having a boy as well. I love my daughter, but maybe some day I’ll be able to have a boy? I know it’s not really up to “me” if that happens, but I would love a little boy to buy clothes with dinosaurs and lizards on them, as well as play outside in the mud with him, find toads and earth worms — I guess I can do that with a girl too. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not limiting what my daughter can do either…
But maybe I feel cliche as a mom that wants to have one of each. I’d love to see my husband bond with a son like I do with my daughter, and hope that he has a relationship with a son that he had with his father.
Oh, and yeah, I’m sure he wants to buy our future son dinosaur shirts too.
No matter what, if we have girls, a girl and a boy, or just one girl, I hope we can take them to Gatorland like we did for our Honeymoon in Florida. No matter what gender you are, they have to enjoy seeing big crocodiles, pythons, turtles and all the other kinds of animals they have there. That’s my hope anyway.
In other news, I’m still working on the short stories. I was looking for stock art for covers the other day and enjoyed it very much.
There is this stock photographer that I follow at DeviantArt that has a lot of book cover contests with her art. Sometimes I vote on them, but I also think in the back of my mind that I can do a better job. I know that’s rather pretentious of me, so I kind of thought if I think that, why don’t I do it? I can’t be all talk. I have to show that I can do it. So I looked at her current contests and downloaded the images and plan on entering. Fingers crossed!
If anything it’ll be good for my portfolio.
Stolen again from Aether House.
How do you keep track of your TBR pile?
Goodreads. It’s the only way I can keep track as I’d be a mess without it.
Is your TBR mostly print or eBook?
Mostly eBook. Though I do like reading ebooks and print books at the same time. I just bought myself a Kindle and I’m really liking it so I’ll probably go the ebook route from now on unless it’s a book I already own.
How do you determine which book from your TBR to read next?
I usually read one Non-Fiction Book, one book for work like Market Research, and one fiction book. Sometimes I read two fiction books at once. Or instead of a fiction book I’ll read another non-fiction book that looks like light reading or something enjoyable.
A book that’s been on your TBR list the longest?
Touch of Dead by Charlaine Harris.
A book you recently added to your TBR?
A Frozen Heart by Walt Disney Company. It’s basically the Frozen novel. I heard it had more than the movie so I was curious.
A book on your TBR strictly because of it’s beautiful cover?
The Blue Diamond by P.S. Bartlett
A book on your TBR that you never plan on reading?
Probably the Holy Bible. I have it on there to skim if I want to and because it was free. Plus, I’ve read most of it and don’t plan on re-reading it with any sort of purpose.
An unpublished book on your TBR that you’re excited for?
Doctor Who: The Legends of Ashildr by various authors. Ever since they announced that this character was getting her own adventure book I was stoked and pre-ordered it right away!
A book on your TBR that everyone has read but you?
Mansfield Park by Jane Austen. It’s the only Jane Austen book I have yet to read. I just haven’t been that excited to read it yet, but I love her work so I’ll get around to it. Honestly, I’d love to find an audio book on it like I did for Persuasion.
A book on your TBR that everyone recommends to you?
The Game of Thrones series. I’ve read the first one and it was dense and took me FOREVER, so it may take me some time to read them. The show is more enjoyable honestly.
A book on your TBR that you’re dying to read?
Allegiant by Veronica Roth. I need to read this before the movie comes out. I will probably start on my holiday break.
How many books are on your Goodreads TBR shelf?
385 and counting!
Please take the challenge if you feel like it!
My first giveaway for Unbridled ended last night, and 752 people entered the giveaway! Five winners were chosen, and I’ll be signing those copies and sending them out this week.
Thanks to everyone who entered and showed an interest in my book!
Happy Solstice to everyone and Happy Holidays! I’m off to my aunt’s house to spend time with family, eat turkey, and root for the Green Bay Packers!
