Sneak Peek: The Bright Effect

HAPPY HALLOWEEN! My kids are sooooo looking forward to trick or treating tonight. Even I'm dressing up (Pictures to follow). Here's a "treat" for you from THE BRIGHT EFFECT (coming November 17th!) “Well, what about--ohmigod, I have an idea!” She drops the canary yellow bathrobe and insane cat slippers she’s carrying and dashes from the fitting room.
“Daphne?” I’d chase after her, but I’m still wearing the nightie and I am not about to show the other shoppers what my bra looks like.
Crap.
      Daphne lets out a loud and gleeful whoop when she resurfaces from the racks of junk and musty coats.
“Check it out!” She’s holding up some old hunk of black metal that upon closer inspection I realize is a Polaroid camera. An ancient one.
“Is that for my costume?”
“No, it’s for me. This is for you,” she says, handing me an ugly black and white patterned dress.
“Are those cats?” I ask, eyeing the dress with suspicion.
“Yes! I spotted it earlier but I couldn’t think of how to use it in a costume. Then when I saw the yellow bathrobe and those perfect cat slippers, I just knew.”
“Knew what?”
“Crazy. Cat. Lady.”
“You're joking.”
          “Why would I joke? This idea is both appropriate and hilariously hideous.”
“Couldn’t I just be a hobo?”
“Nope. Cat Lady all the way. You’re doing this, Amelia.”
          “Well, I do have cat leggings. They’re rainbow colored.”

    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
