During the week of October 19 through 24, the first two books in The Bellator Saga will be on sale at Amazon!
In my continuing effort to Learn How To Do This Crazy Thing, I’ve ramped up my marketing efforts. What does that mean? Well, nothing all that grand or dramatic, especially if you’re reading this blog post. But Dissident is going to be free for at least the next several months, so that more and more readers can get Jack and Caroline onto their Kindles. And Conscience, the second installment in the series, is now OUT! It’s darker, sexier, and grittier than Dissident, so be prepared. The first book was just a nice quiet intro before it all hits the fan.
Dissident is available almost everywhere for free (except Amazon Australia, since they hate my price matching requests).

If you’ve gotten attached to Caroline and Jack (and I hope you have!) Conscience is available here.
Part of being a newbie author is admitting that maybe your super cool, totally fresh and unique cover image might not always be the best idea in terms of marketing. So I’ve created a new ebook cover. The print cover remains the same, just for variety, and because I don’t want to let go of my winter landscape. Still available at all major retailers!
April is Autism Awareness month, and the romance reading community is celebrating!
1 in 68 children is diagnosed with Autism every year, making it the fastest growing and one of the most prevalent developmental disabilities. Authors Ginger Scott and Kennedy Ryan have organized a MegaGiveaway called LIFT featuring more than 50 authors to raise awareness and acceptance! Each Monday in April, a new rafflecopter will go live, loaded with e-books, audio books, swag packs, signed paperbacks and gift cards from these amazing authors doing their part to LIFT4Autism. (scroll down for this week’s rafflecopter!)
And there’s LIFTWear – 4 styles to choose from! All proceeds from the LIFT t-shirts will go to a national autism organization. Order t-shirts HERE until MONDAY, APRIL 13!
Good luck and #LIFTOff!
I’ve finally figured out the print proofs at Createspace, and to celebrate I’m giving away two paperback copies of Dissident on Goodreads. Enter and add it to your TBR!
Last night I couldn’t sleep (naturally), so a little before midnight I got up to check my phone. And when I synced my Kindle, I saw this:
And I cried. Just a little. (I’m a very emotional person.)
I’ve led a very fortunate life. I know how lucky I am. And I’ve had many truly wonderful moments (getting married, having children, obtaining dream jobs, etc.). But I can only remember feeling this way on one other occasion: the day I graduated from law school. And I know why. Because I had two dreams as a child: to be a writer, and to be a lawyer. (Okay, technically three since I also wanted to be a movie director, but let’s not split hairs.)
Last night, I got to live my other childhood dream. I’m sure I’ll go back to being an attorney someday. I’m still licensed, I have always loved what I do, and I derive tremendous meaning from my chosen profession.
But the child in me…the one who knew that if given the chance…maybe…just maybe…she could write the hell out of something…she got to live again in the early morning hours of March 17, 2015. Because she got to see her dreams come true.
This book might sell. It might not. I suppose I care, just a little. I know it’s a good book. I know it’s a good series. And if things are meant to happen, they will. But for now I’m taking this small victory for what it is. I wrote a damn book. And I published it. And people bought it, and blogs reviewed it, and it’s out there in the world. My little book baby, for everyone to see.
And that’s effing awesome.
