I’m baaa-aaack!

Yep, just like the title of this post says … I’m baaa-aack! To writing that is. (Had to make that clear incase someone mistakenly thought I meant I was back to posting regularly on social media, and decided not to be anti-social anymore. HA! That thought makes me laugh. I’m pretty sure I’ll always have a love-hate relationship with the internet … Ordering from Amazon Prime, good. Posting anywhere except on Instagram, and mostly pictures of my dogs, bad. 😉 )

Anywho …

The last 6 to 8 months have been a bit crazy for me, and writing kind of fell by the wayside. The book I had planned on finishing back in October before I made my big move from Little Rock, AR to Raleigh, NC stalled out. That is the first time that ever happened to me, but I also never dealt with hypothyroidism before. Yep, about a month before the move, after numerous trips to the hospital and everyone telling me all my issues were linked to anxiety … I was finally diagnosed with hypothyroidism. (For those of you who don’t know, that means my thyroid wasn’t producing enough thyroid hormone … which in a nutshell is bad.) Now that I’m on meds, I’m starting to feel better.

Which means … I finally have enough energy to write again!

And that book … the first one in a new series I mentioned what seems like eons ago … it’s going to be released in April. Yaaaaaay!

Cover reveal will be happening soon, so stay tuned.

Oh, you want to know the title of the new book, and maybe a bit about it? Maybe check out a blurb or something? Hmmm? Click >HERE< then.

That’s it for now … Until next time …

It’s always exciting to have any book release into the world, but for me, completing a series is creatively satisfying on an entirely different level. It’s a mix of … well, this pretty much sums it up in gif representation:



And now I’m free to start obsessing about new series and ideas. I’m so friggin’ excited!!!

See, I told you I’d do a post soon. 😉

Anywho … I wanted to officially announce that Starblind, Somniare, and Consurge are all in production to become audiobooks. Now look at the pretty covers for the audiobook editions:





As far as written books go, Parallax (Starblind #2) will be released sometime in April. It’s gone through edits already and is currently in the proofreading stage. I’ll let you all know when an exact release date is picked.

I’m currently writing Flux (Starblind #3) which I hope to be done with by the end of March. Then I’m going to roll right into Luminosity (Starblind #4)to finish up the series. Release dates, at least the month, will be announced soon on those as well.

A few events I’d planned on attending this year have been canceled. As of now, the only signing/event I’m attending is UtopiaCon in Nashville, TN, the end of June. I’d love to see you there! For more info. visit the tab under Events.

Welp, that’s all the updates I have for now. I’m off to work on Flux, which I’m seriously loving right now! We’ll see how long that lasts. heh. Oh, the rollercoaster of emotions … *sigh*

Until next time …

It’s that time of year again …

December updates

Just a bit of an update. Starting December 15th, and lasting through January 20th, all of my ebooks are going to be up for renewal within the Kindle Unlimited program. I’ve decided not to renew said ebooks in the program.

What does that mean?

Well … All of my books will still be available on Amazon in both the Kindle edition and in print, but instead of the ebooks only being available on Amazon, they’re going to be available … EVERYWHERE

But this will take a bit of time to happen. So I’ll update buy links as each book is made available in different places such as iBooks, Kobo, B&N etc.

Also, I’m now selling signed paperback books from my website. For details visit the Merchandise tab and scroll on down. 🙂 If you just want a regular paperback, they’re  still available everywhere Createspace distributes, FYI.

Okey dokey, I think that’s about it for now. Until next time …

Consurge is ALIVE! (And some other tidbits … )

That’s right! Consurge, book two, the conclusion to the Somniare Duology is ALIVE!

You get find it here:

And since I’ve been a super slacker with posting updates on here, I’ll catch everyone up.

What I’m working on now:

Parallax, book two in the Starblind series.

The planned release isn’t be until April of 2017, but I’ll also be releasing the rest of the series in 2017. That’s right, I’m finally going to complete the series.

Why did it take me so long?

Because I couldn’t make up my mind about how I wanted to do the series. First I had planned on doing the entire series told through Jane’s POV, because she was so much fun to write. But then I worried I’d get bored. That happens to me … a lot. And I certainly didn’t want to be working on something that wasn’t fun for me to write. So then I thought I’d do it like my M-Day series, and have each book told through a different person’s POV. That ran me into a little cover problem. How was I going to find non-crappy (Yes, that’s a word now.) representations of some of the aliens I put in the book? I thought maybe doing the whole sexy couple thing on the cover might work. Buuuut … I ended up changing my mind again. And again. Then the book just sat there seeping in uncertainty, driving me insane.

Finally, a few months ago I came to a decision. I was going to get another new cover for Starblind, re-edit that bad boy, and finish the damn series!!! Each book will focus on a different couple, and will be narrated from a different character’s POV.

Fast forward to now, Starblind has a new cover ready to go:

It’s been re-edited, and is waiting to be formatted. It will go live as soon as it’s finished. I’m excited about this series all over again!

Speaking of new covers … My Death Trilogy has some revamped covers on the way as well.

 I also cleaned up the prose a bit on these books.

Fun fact: As an author, if you re-read anything that you wrote a long time ago , you are going to want to hurl yourself off of the closest building.

Seriously, I wanted to delete these books and pretend like they never existed. But instead, I polished them up a bit, accepted that my writing has evolved over the past five years, and once they’re re-published, I will pretend like they don’t exist, like all the rest of my old books.

That’s about it for now folks. Until next time …
