#WriterWednesday: OMG! What have I written, and why does it suck?

Posted Mar 11 2015 in , , , , , , , , , , ,

I’m twelve published books into this gig, and still there are times when I genuinely don’t know what I’m doing. To say that’s frustrating is an understatement. Knowing that a story isn’t working, but not knowing why is a horrible feeling for a writer. But, there is a silver lining. (There always is with me.) […]

End of the School Year Woes

Posted May 31 2013 in , , , , ,

About this time every year I begin to panic. I love my kids. I enjoy them even. But when they are home for large periods of time, my house and schedule suffer. They make large messes that get picked up at their own leisurely pace, one that is never as fast as I would like. They […]

Writing Words, Collecting Compliments and Missing Baseball

Posted May 17 2013 in , , , , , ,

This writing thing is hard. There are days when I’m certain I suck. Some of those days are made worse by comments or reviews that are less than stellar. Inevitably, the woe-is-me sets in, and I loose desire to write, which is risky with so many deadlines. One lackluster day of writing throws the whole […]

The Next Few Months: an Announcement, a Reveal, a Release

Posted May 10 2013 in , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Not so long ago, I wished to be crazy busy, writing on deadlines, pumping out book after book. Well, I’ll have four books published by the end of this year, and I’m writing six more. There are days when I’m overwhelmed, and I think I’m crazy, and then I remember I wished to be crazy. So […]

First, Save My Soul is finally available for Nook. Get your copy here. I’m happy to share with you my new “tentative” release […]

More Happy News!

Posted Mar 8 2013 in , , , , , , , ,

It feels strange to be posting about something other than Save My Soul or the rest of the Kemmons Brothers Baseball Series with just seventeen days left before Save My Soul releases, but here I am, announcing my sale of Crashing the Congressman’s Wedding: A Harmony Falls Novel to Crimson Romance. Squee!! The tentative release […]

Release Month Celebration

Did you hear that? That was me screeching with excitement…well, it was probably more like a sickly howl, but still… I’m so stoked. In twenty-four days Save My Soul will be available to the public. SHUT UP! Seriously, after what seems like a million revisions and a million more read-throughs over the past three years, […]

Balancing Act

Posted Feb 22 2013 in , , ,

This post feels like a letdown after the excitement of Wednesday’s posted cover release. But I suppose there will be more posts like this along the way than posts like Wednesday’s. 🙂 My day-to-day life is certainly not a letdown. It’s late- February, so things are crazy around here, and of course, I’m the ring […]

Posted Feb 15 2013 in , , , , , , , , , ,

For a debut writer, there might not be anything more exciting than seeing the cover of the book. (But seeing the book on the publisher’s Upcoming Releases page is close!) I was lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the cover of Save My Soul a week ago, but it’s not a final copy, so […]
