Square Pegs Ink – Check It Out!

Check it out, guys and girls – I am always one for sharing exciting news, especially when I can proudly back it. My friend and fellow writer, Layce Gardner, recently started a publishing company with her wife (also a writer!), Saxon Bennett. If you’re familiar with any of their works (and you should be…COUGH), then you’re probably already at her blog for details! Here’s the cool information:

The Next Big Thing (A Blog Hop Post)

As part of the “The Next Big Thing Blog Hop”, I was tagged by the wonderful Kat Wheeler. The purpose of participating in this fun project is to discuss my book and introduce readers to other awesome writers (and dare I say friends?) that I highly recommend checking out as well.

I will be answering the same questions about my book that Kat answered about hers and the authors that I tag will also answer about their works in progress (or published works) next Wednesday.

Good? Good! Now, getting started… (more…)

All That Glitters – The Characters

So hopefully you’ve all read All That Glitters by now…Right?! 😉 Right. Hopefully you have all laughed a lot, felt flashes of anger and sentimental at the appropriate places and been entertained for a few hours. Anyway, there is quite a spectrum of very different characters reflected in All That Glitters and a couple of people have asked me who my favorite one to write was. (more…)

All That Glitters is OUT! Read Me, Maybe?

I am VERY pleased and excited to let everyone know that All That Glitters is officially out in both paperback and eBook formats! I am so excited to share this work with everyone and I couldn’t be happier with the finished product. Everything came together in a way that I’m so thrilled about and I hope readers truly enjoy a fun story with relatable characters. (more…)

Status Update

I’m really excited to let everyone know that I am nearly done with the final round of edits on the author/final proof copy of All That Glitters. I have been diligently living and breathing this story and am down to editing the last two chapters. I can’t emphasize how helpful it was to receive a final proof paperback copy of All That Glitters last week – It really forces you to read your book as, well, a reader! (more…)

Shameless Self-Promotion

I’m not very good at self-promotion, but I AM going to nudge, urge, encourage and drop hints that you can view the preview for All That Glitters here:

If so inclined, you can also answer my 5 questions after the preview. I am genuinely interested in peoples’ answers to those questions as the answers will definitely give me things to consider when writing in the future. In case you don’t know, I am one of those cool people that actually listens to others’ thoughts and opinions and, combined with my own natural instincts, takes all of those things into consideration in future situations.

Or, if you’re just curious about this new book, want to know what it’s all about and check what I’ve been working on for quite some time, you can view the preview here:

Okay, I take it back – The self-promotion stuff is kind of fun. Right now, All That Glitters is in the review process so things are moving along quite nicely (God, I hope I didn’t just jinx myself). Anyway, I KNOW everybody has an opinion and this is the once or twice in a year that I’m actually soliciting others for them (usually they are thrown at me whether I want them or not – Looking at a LOT of politicians here). So check it out and let me know your thoughts! In case you’re blind, illiterate or just plain scatterbrained, you can check the preview here:

Thanks everyone!

Big Things Happening…

…And it feels so good. I am VERY happy and excited in a way that I can’t quite put into words – After much back and forth, deliberation, editing, re-editing, writing, re-writing and lots, lots, LOTS of reflection and thought, I am releasing my first novel on October 1st. (more…)
