First Review and Nerves

I gave a couple of people ARC of LARK and today I read my first review! This review made my day! It's a very exciting thing to know that there are people out there who love your story.

It's a scary thing letting people read something so personal. I've spent the last year working on LARK and I love it of course, if I didn't I wouldn't have written it, but now that I'm putting it out there for the world to see (read), it makes me feel extremely vulnerable.  I'm a huge bundle of nerves these days and it hasn't even been officially published yet! Can you imagine how I'll feel on R-day (Release-day)?? I'm going to be a mess!

I know my story is not going to be everybody's cup of tea. I know this and I've accepted it. If we all liked the same things the world would be a very boring place. But if there are people out there who love it as much as I do, I'll consider that a success!

And when I do get my first bad review, I hope that I remember the good ones and smile.





P.S. I'm planning on posting Sneak Peek #3 soon so stay tuned! :)

    Hello! Welcome to my page! I'm terrible about updating it but my goal is to do better this year so when Lizzy Ford came up with the Spring into Romance Facebook Hop I jumped right on!  What a fantastic idea, right?! Lots of new authors to meet and prizes to win!  For my giveaway, I decided to giveaway one of my books that is particularly close to my heart,   Pieces of Me Aria Watkins’s life was on the perfect path, or so she thought. She and Sean had big plans for their future together. They were going to go off to college, get married, and have 2.5 kids. But when tragedy strikes, it destroys the heart of Aria and she's afraid she'll never be the same.  Heartbroken and confused, Aria starts college a completely different person. She hardly recognizes the broken girl she's become, but she can't seem to find the strength to put back together the pieces either.  Enter Holden Whitmore.  He's charming, considerate, and he's

The "C" Word

It's probably the scariest word out there. At least I can't really think of a single word that effects me as much as the "C" word does. Just 6 little harmless letters strung together and it leaves me completely breathless. I guess I should probably start at the very beginning. Last August I went in for my normal yearly exam. My midwife Sue asked me how I was feeling and I was literally just complaining like a little whinebag at the time. I told her I had a super bad cough that wasn't going away no matter how many different kind of over the counter cough medicine I had been taking. Nothing was working and sometimes I would wake up in the middle of the night gasping for air. She felt my throat and said I felt "knotty" so she wanted me to get some labwork done. I asked why and she seemed hesitant to tell me. I told her I was just going to go home and google it and jump to the worse-possible-scenario conclusion. So she told me that it could be just a coup
