Counting Down!

Hidden Danger releases in just 16 days! I’m so excited. I can’t wait for everyone to read it.

Here’s the blurb:

All Maggie Jones wants to do is sell her late father’s property and get out of Whitehaven, Texas as fast as possible—before she runs into the one man she’s spent the past six years avoiding. Someone has other plans for her, though. Sinister plans. And when a seemingly harmless act of vandalism turns into a series of menacing threats, she has no choice but to turn to him for help.
Sheriff Cody Smith never expected to see Maggie again, especially after he’d broken her heart all those years ago. Maybe this is the second chance he’s always wanted. But when he realizes Maggie’s in grave danger, he intends to keep her safe at all costs. With lines from an old nursery rhyme as their only clue, he needs to find out who’s behind this deadly game before the rhyme ends and Maggie’s time runs out. Can he protect her, catch the bad guy, and make amends for past wrongs? Or will old wounds get in the way?

What am I working now? Well, book two in the Small Tow Guardians already has a contract. I was trying to get a Christmas novella written before February 1 but don’t think it will happen. Instead I’ll focus my attention on book three in Small Town Guardians. I already have 6,000 words.

Happy reading!

Goodbye 2017, Hello 2018

I’m currently sitting on my couch, less than 2 hours away from a new year, watching my 8 year old play LEGO Worlds. My 13 year old wanted to ring in the new year with grandma.  I guarantee they’re at her house watching TV counting down to midnight. We’re a wild bunch I tell you. It has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that it’s 18 degrees outside. Why is it so cold? There’s not even any snow on the ground to make it worth it.

2017 has been a great year. I signed 2 book contracts. The first book, Hidden Danger, releases in just 23 days. I am way beyond excited. Going from rough draft, to pitching, to editing, to production has been an incredible learning experience. I’ve grown a lot as a writer. Now, if I can get my brain to just calm down and write more, that would be fantastic. I’m hoping once Hidden Danger releases I’ll be able to concentrate again. I’ve got several stories started and many more dancing around in my head.

I don’t usually make New Year’s resolutions. They never last. Ever. I can’t think of one that’s I’ve actually kept. Lose weight? Nope, always gain it. I am going to make a list of things I am going to work on this year.

  1. Grow closer to God. I want to read my Bible more. Study it. Relay more on Him and less on me. I need to be steadied and grounded.
  2. Be a better mother, wife, friend. Listen more. Play more. Care more.
  3. Get healthy. Yes, I need to lose weight but it’s so much more than that. I want to make good choices, not just for my physical health but for my emotional and mental health.
  4. Create a writing routine. I want to finish and sell the third book in my Small Town Guardians series. Keep the blog updated. Encourage and inspire others through my writing.

These are goals with no specific end date, weight, circumstance, etc. As long as I keep going and I’m one foot away from where I was yesterday, then it’s progress. I may only read through my Bible and glean a few new things that have never caught my attention but that’s more than what I knew on December 31, 2017. I may only lose 10 pounds but that’s 10 pounds lighter than I was. I may only play card games with people 3 nights a week but those are memories we wouldn’t have otherwise. I may only write 3 chapters but that’s 3 chapters closer to the end.

What are your goals, aspirations, hopes for 2018?

Exciting news

This mommy’s heart is so full of joy right now! The last couple of months Red has asked questions about Jesus and getting saved. We had another little talk last night and he’s done his ABCs! Admit, believe, and confess!

Hidden Danger

My novel is almost ready. After several rounds of edits and a title change, it’s off to the line editor. I’ve been told we should have it back by the middle of December.

I saw the cover today. IT IS AMAZING!!! I can’t wait to share it. Cover reveal details to come.

Big things are coming!

God is so great! I have been blessed so much.

I just signed my second contract with Anaiah Press. Edits on book one are progressing. Although, I confessed to hating the title and now I’m on the hunt for a new title.

I’ve created an author’s page on Facebook.

Now, I’m steadily working on book 3.

I started the Van Buren Police Department’s Police Academy last week. Seven more weeks of fun and learning!

I’m going to try to update the blog once a week. What are some things you’d like to read about? Leave me a comment.



Book reviews

Plain Retribution

by Dana R. Lynn

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The author did a great job intertwining the deaf world with the hearing world. She put in facts about the deaf community and ASL.

I loved the fact that Miles takes Rebecca’s deafness into thought as he interacts with the hearing. The author did a good job describing Rebecca’s world, how she feels and interacts.

The suspense had me turning pages wanting to know what happens next.

I was given a copy of the book for an honest review.

Finding Love at the Oregon Coast

by Heather Woodhaven, Lisa Phillips, Christina Coryell, and Angela Ruth Strong

I adored this novella collection. The collection starts off with a wedding that wasn’t. It branches off into four separate stories all connected to the wedding.

Finding Love in Lincoln City by Heather Woodhaven-A sweet story of old friends reconnecting, pushing each other to be reach their full potential and falling in love at the same time.

Finding Love in Ocean Side by Lisa Phillips-This is a cute story of how a small fender bender can lead to great things. Restoring a relationship with a parent and finding the “one”.

Finding Love in Cannon Beach by Christina Coryell-One hit wonder finally finds the one that brings out “the” song.

Finding Love in Seaside by Angela Ruth Strong-This is by far my favorite of the novellas. After calling off her wedding, can Christina heal and find a new love, the one God has for her, in the process?

I was given this collection for an honest review.
