What story I’m working on: On Forged Decisions, I hit 5k, though it’s been a slow moving start. While I wanted to forge ahead on The Airship Also Rises, I keep stalling out on that project, so I decided to do a fun secret side-thing with another author and actually knocked out 3k with that one.

What I’m editing/marketing: Ho-boy do I have a lot going on! So, I got the major crits in on my Future King story, which means it’s time to roll up my sleeves and work some editing magic. And I submitted Cupid’s Cafe to After Glows last week and as of yesterday, Captured Memories now has a home! Which means even after Waking for Winter comes out, I’ll have another story launching this year. Speaking of Waking for Winter, I hope you’re as excited as I am. This story is dear to me, and marks the major accomplishment of my first series coming to a close!

Teaser of the week:

When Cami_s lips touched his, memory took the wheel. He_d never forgotten the sweep of her soft mouth against his, the taste of her sweetness, like strawberries, and the way she fire

Line of the week:

“A mating ceremony? That’s the worst of all,” Navi grumbled back.

Jess rolled her eyes. “Yes, yes, we know. You hate love. Anger, anger, roar.”

Navi snorted into her pillow. Not like she could hide anything from Jess—with the way they’d shared a room most of their lives, the woman was essentially her sister. Every time they officiated a mating ceremony, the nausea rolled through. Not because she hated love, but because she knew the couple had something she would never get. Jess put on a laid-back front, but Navi had watched her try and fail to keep several long distance relationships. When you constantly jumped from city to city, you got the clothes on your back and your Tribe—nothing else.

Author:

I split my time writing and working my day job as a massage therapist. If it’s a creative pursuit though, chances are I’ve dabbled in it. Hell, I’ve played around with soapmaking, beer brewing, cupcake baking, tea blending and everything else under the midday sun. At the end of the day, my constant is always reading, writing and editing. I’m an Aries-Taurus cusp–which to any astrology buffs should tell you plenty. I hit the East Coast convention circuit pretty hard and chances are, you can find me vending for Solstice Brews while simultaneously promoting my books.
