Release Day!

Release day never gets old. When ONCE BITTEN came out, my release day was the most exciting thing I've ever experienced. Now that UP IN FLAMES came out today, I've noticed that the excitement doesn't go away. I'm just as excited for this book as I was for my first, and as I will be for my third. And forth. And fifth. You get the point.

When ONCE BITTEN came out, I went out with some friends, had a Pain Killer that knocked me on my butt at the Mexican restaurant (who has the best cheese dip ever), and just had a good time. Now that UP IN FLAMES is out, I feel like I should go do something. Pop open a bottle of wine? Throw some steaks on the grill? Nah. How about work on book 3?


What better way to celebrate than to keep on keeping on? I got books to write. I have a schedule. I don't deviate from my schedule, just ask anyone who knows me. I'll be pointing at a clock in a flash. So much to do, so little time.

But I love it. I love every minute of it. So, maybe I will open a bottle of wine (after 12, of course) and I'll put on some good music that helps me focus. Shall I listen to 80s rock ballads? How about some John Denver? Or, when in doubt, I can always go back to my trusty Ben Howard.

Regardless, I'm ready to write.

The second book in the Netherworld Series - UP IN FLAMES - is due to come out in May. I hope everyone is as excited as I am. In the spirit of celebration, I'm positing the cover of Up In Flames for your enjoyment. :)

Once Bitten in Paperback

Once Bitten is now available in paperback at Amazon!

In other news, the second novel in the Netherworld Series finally has a title. If all goes to plan (and I see no reason why it shouldn't), Up In Flames should be released in May. I'll post updates as I learn about them.

I hope everyone is staying warm this winter!

Sweet Reviews

Let me just start out by saying "Wow". I was sitting down this evening to continue editing the second novel in the Netherworld Series and in the spirit of procrastination, I googled myself. I do that sometimes. Anyway, what I found was absolutely exhilarating for me. Reviews. Oh, the sweet reviews.

I've known about the ones on Amazon and Barnes & Nobel for some time, but what I found was a little (and awesome) site called Night Owl Reviews. And thus I found my first professional review. I even got this cute little sticker next to it:

Now that I'm floating on Cloud 9, I suppose I should get back to work. This book isn't going to edit itself.

Happy Reading!

02 December 2014


For the past month (or maybe two), my house has been under construction. Like the good procrastinator that I am, I find that I cannot work in messy conditions. Of course this only happens when I have a deadline to meet. When I do force myself to sit down and write, I haven't been very productive. I peck out a few paragraphs and then I almost immediately delete them. Garbage. Who would want to read that crap?

I have thrown out two rough drafts when they were almost completed and have started over yet again on a new manuscript. We'll see how this one plays out. Luckily for me I'm ahead of schedule. The manuscript I'm wrestling with belongs to the fourth book. But what about the second book you ask? Good news. It's finished. Sort of.

So maybe I have several more hours that I need to devote to editing it. Again. And maybe I've been putting that off too since my house has started this total renovation. With less than a month to go before Christmas. It begs the question, what was I thinking?!

Well, whatever. What's done is done and I just have to find the...patience(?)...discipline(?)...MOTIVATION to get everything done without significantly increasing my blood pressure. So my goal for today is to find that rough draft of the second book I need to finish working on (I know it's around here somewhere) and get a few more pages under my belt.  Just as soon as I clean off this dining room table. And maybe organize my bookshelf (arranged by genre>alphabetical>order of release, of course).

Wish me luck.
