I love Kickstarter (and a Bound by Bloodsong update)

I just backed Candace Osmond's Omnibus for Dark Tides. I've never read her books or even heard of her, but her campaign totally sucked me in. I mean, look at the reward tiers! A mystery box?! A Funko Pop doll?! It was a really hard choice, but I went with the mystery...

Mind. Blown.

My mind is absolutely blown that Brandon Sanderson has raised over $20 million on Kickstarter and 12,698 people have paid $500 for four books (hardcover, ebook, and audio) and 8 book boxes. Mind. Blown. Meanwhile, I'm launching my own Kickstarter later this month (I...

Achievements Unlocked! And Book Drop!

I hit a milestone overnight! Bound by Bloodsong has over 250 pre-orders! That's way more than I've had on any of my books, and it's a HUGE deal! I mean, I very rarely pre-order books, but when I do, it's because I absolutely love a book or an author, so thank you guys...

News!

First up, it's like I remembered I have a website! lol I seriously need to get better at updating this thing. It's been almost a year, and I had a new book release over the summer! And I have a new release this month! It's sort of a prequel to A Void of Magic, but...

I Don’t Like Dystopian Novels

It took me forever to read The Hunger Games. I checked it out from the library probably three or four times. I'd read the first page or two, get bored or distressed, and set it down. Little did I know I needed to make it to page ten to get hooked. lol But The Hunger...

Shades of Allegiance and Fast Reader

Shades of Allegiance is here! Finally! It's only been four years, two months, and twenty-two days since my last book, but let's not dwell on that. Let's celebrate the fact that Ash and Rip are back, and they are freaking awesome in this book. You should read. One of...

A Deleted Scene and 11 Days to go

A deleted scene! This was going to be the opening scene to Shades of Allegiance. I wrote it years ago, and it stayed in the book all the through beta readings and even went to my editor. I like the scene, but it didn't set up the book quite right, and after some deep...

Blueberry Muffins

Forgive me for a post that's totally unrelated to writing. My boys are in 4th grade. They're allowed to bring a snack to school. A few years ago, I started making blueberry muffins to send with them. I figured making them myself was better than buying them, and...

Should I write more Science Fiction? Or get back to Urban Fantasy?

54 days until Shades of Allegiance! I can't wait for you guys to read this. I think it might be your favorite Shades book! I love so much about it. I'm still waiting on a few last comments from my editor, then it's on to the copy editor, then proofreading, then I have...

Back from the 2014 RWA National Conference

I flew to San Antonio last week for my very first RWA National Conference. It was awesome. It was packed with authors who love and write romance. The workshops were phenomenal, and so were the keynote speakers. I left San Antonio exhausted, but rejuvenated, too. I...

Do You Read Multi-Author Bundles?

Around about a year ago, authors started banding together and releasing multi-author ebook bundles together. They priced them super cheap, usually $0.99 for six or more books. It's a great deal, incredibly hard to pass up, and several of these bundles have gone on to...

What I’m Loving Lately

1. Honor's Knight. Still reading this, only because I'm a slow reader and my kids exhaust me in the afternoons so much that I tend to collapse into bed after they go to sleep. The book is just so, so good, though. It's one of those books that makes me ask myself,...

Still Searching for the Perfect Conference Wear

(Honor's Knight is still awesome! There's so much tension and angst going on. I love it! I know the covers make it look like there's not much romance in the books, but trust me, it has the perfect amount. You can still enter to win either the first or second book in...
