NaNo update: Final Week

Today is my 29th birthday. Man, I feel OLD. But more important than my birthday, it's the last day of NaNoWriMo. I haven't posted much this month and I'd like to blame it entirely on the fact that I've been writing day and night all month but that's just not the case--though I did write a lot this month, I also had several (albeit minor) setbacks. Take this week for example, I was on a writing roll Tuesday when my oldest daughter stepped on a piece of a wooden skewer (I guess that's the word? I just called it a giant toothpick) and I had to rush her (+ my two youngest and my two nephews...ages 6, 5, 4, 3, and 2--no joke. That's a baby a year, folks!) to the doctor because I couldn't pull it out myself. It was a pretty good size piece of wood and was so deep in her foot that only about 1/2-1 inch was visible. Looking back, I would've liked to see my face when our doctor pulled that sucker out. Though I'm sure my expression mirrored that of th

Link to Nook books

Lark and In the Shadows are now available on Nook! There will be no paperbacks available of either book until probably after the beginning of the year. Eden Crane will be designing a new cover for Lark and designing the cover of Like the Dawn in January with the same model she used to design the new cover for In the Shadows so I will probably wait for those to republish the paperbacks. I can't wait to see the new covers! Anyway, I will however work on getting both books back up on Smashwords and Kobo soon. In the meantime, they are available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble . I've been working on Pieces of Me (my NaNo novel) and I love Aria and Holden so much that I can't wait for you to meet them! XOXO

Surprise! New Cover for In the Shadows

Soooooooo I'm sure you've noticed by now that In the Shadows has a new cover. I don't really want to get into details on why I made the change, just know that it wasn't what I had planned because I truly did love the original cover BUT I'm really loving the new cover that Eden Crane designed for me just as much. Now if I could only figure out this whole formatting nonsense and find a nice Goodreads Librarian to update the cover for me.....*sigh* so much to do, so little time. I'm officially behind now on NaNo because I spent the last 24 hours stressing out but I'm hoping to do some major catch up tomorrow. For now, I'm calling it a night---I'm exhausted! XOXO

Cover Reveal: Walker by Michelle Flick

Oh my gosh guys! I'm so excited about this upcoming release from Michelle Flick! I got the honor of beta reading it and I really loved it! And today I get to help reveal the gorgeous cover by White Rabbit Designs and Creations! So without further ado: Title: Walker Author: Michelle Flick Genre: YA Paranormal Release Date: Dec 11th 2013   Kate isn’t thrilled to be moving to the middle of nowhere. She's already lost her parents, now she's leaving the only place she's ever known as home. She’s not there long when she realizes her dreams aren’t her own and that she has the ability to walk through other people's dreams. Not only that, but she might have found her dream guy--literally. He's in her dreams. Just when she starts to get the hang of dream walking, strange murders in her new town start to occur. Girls are being killed as they sleep with no evidence, no suspects and no clear motive behind the deaths. It doesn’t take Kate very long

And the title of Lark 3 is..........

In this final installment of the Lark Trilogy, Mia has made her choice to sacrifice her own happiness for the greater good. But every choice has its consequence and every beginning has to come to an end. Coming Spring 2014 XOXO


So I decided to commit to writing a 50,000 word novel in the month of November---eek! That's a lot of pressure! So far I'm set to finish on Nov 21st so I hope I can keep up the pace! This is the first year I've participated in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) so I'm excited! I decided to write Pieces of Me this month. It's a story I've been wanting to write for a while so I'm excited about it. Recently I randomly entered a giveaway with Cover Art Collective  and I won a free cover design by Delilah Stephans Designs . Perfect timing, right? So here is the cover of my NaNoWriMo novel, Pieces of Me: And of course I had to share the blurb: 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. Hea
