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...

The Shadow Reader is a Barnes & Noble FREE eBOOK FAVORITES this week!

    I love it when my books get extra attention from a retailer. The Shadow Reader is a Barnes & Noble's FREE eBOOK FAVORITES this week! Yes, that means you can read it for free. (Psst: you can also find it free everywhere else this week!) If you know...

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...

Birthdays and Page Proofs and Sad/Awkward Email

It's been a frustratingly unproductive week at my house. I was supposed to spend it getting ready for the boys' first birthday, which is Saturday, but they both got super sick at the beginning of the week. (Boy #1 had a 103 degree fever Sunday night!).  #2 came down...

Giveaway: Amanda Bonilla’s BLOOD BEFORE SUNRISE

My writing buddy, Amanda Bonilla, has a new book out today! It's the sequel to SHAEDES OF GRAY, a new urban fantasy series with a kickbutt heroine who is NOT a vampire or a werewolf (not that anything is wrong with vamps or weres - love them both!). I love the world...

How I Know Things Are Finally Getting Better

You know how this blog has been so quiet, and how most of the posts always begin without an apology for not posting more? I've very much been a frazzled mother of twins attempting to learn how to be a mom, a wife, and a writer all at the same time, and I've just...

It’s Friday! Here, have some randomness.

1. I found myself on the phone with an insurance company today. I also found myself wanting to strangle the company's automated voice-rec system. It was awful. After screaming "Operator!" several times and getting asked the same irrelevant questions again and again, I...

Monthly Goals

Yep, yep. I'm totally regressing here. No more weekly goals because, well, I obviously can't keep up with posting that much, even when I do accomplish them. So I'm going to attempt to do monthly goals. Not sure if it'll work out, but hey, it's worth a shot, right?...

A Few Random Things

Two weeks ago, when I wrote down my weekly goals, I forgot one tiny detail: I was leaving town for a week and a half. All my goals pretty much flew out the window when I remembered that, and I spent my time scrambling to get ready instead of crossing things off my...
