Thanks for 1,000+ Facebook Likes

Big surprise here, I am a bit behind schedule!

I meant to post this a week ago, you know, when I actually hit 1k Facebook likes--but I was busy living in book worlds and I didn't want to stop. Trust me, you didn't want me to stop either!

There are certain things I thought I would never do when my first book was published in 2011. I never thought I hit 1k Twitter followers... or 2k, or 5k, or 10k... if you would have told me I'd have 23,000+ without being a household name I would have laughed. But here I am. Only none of the Twitter numbers are as shocking as the Facebook numbers.

Because I really used to dislike it. I dug in my cute little kitten heels, I crossed my arms and turned up my nose. I did not want. But some people wanted for me, and now we're here. So thank you. Without the people reading this blog, without the people buying my books, I don't know where my life would be; but I'd be missing out on a lot of amazing fans and friends. I am grateful for every single one of you. Every Twitter follower, every Goodreads and Amazon reviewer, everyone who takes time to post a comment on and every Facebook stalker.

Never think you don't matter. No matter how many books I write and sell, no matter how many new friends I make online--you will always matter to me.

Stay tuned for amazing announcements, giveaways, cover reveals, and book launches. June is going to be a big month!

HEY YOU, yeah, you! Whatcha reading?

So I have to hand a book in to my editor after this long weekend, and I have to hand in another (surprise!) book a week or so into June. NO ONE PANIC! (I mean, besides me!) I know that many authors tend to stop reading when they are staring down the barrel of hellacious deadlines, but I am not one of them. Actually, I read crap tons when I am busy writing and editing. There's a good reason for that, it's because I'm tired. I know what your thinking--wouldn't your time be better served sleeping if your so tired?

Well, yeah. IF I was talking about that kind of exhaustion. But I'm not. There is something so draining about living inside your own world for so long--searching for lost commas, coming up with solutions to problems you caused. It's not bad in small doses, but when you start doing it for hours and hours a day you start looking for a way out. That's why I have to read, even when I'm too busy for it. To fix the mental fatigue that I bring down on myself, I like to escape to a universe that I am not the god of.

Currently I am re-reading all of Cassandra Clare novels to get ready for the next book, what are you reading? What kind of things do you do to relax?

Next week I am celebrating 1k Facebook likes... I am a little behind ;)

“Funny, real, moving and passionate, Misunderstandings is a MUST-READ for NA contemporary romance fans."--New York Times bestselling author Samantha Young

“Super sweet and swoon-worthy!”— #1 New York Times Bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout

Just when she thought things were going up…

Two years after a devastating breakup, Brittni Mitchell has moved on from Justin Avery—or so she tells herself. But when she returns to Seattle for her best friend’s engagement party, Brittni finds herself the victim of a disastrously timed elevator breakdown. She’s trapped with the last person she wants to face, and forced to recount the past she desperately wants to forget.

She’s going to have to look back…

When Brittni left her podunk hometown for a big city college experience at the University of Washington, hooking up with a guy like Justin Avery was not part of her plan. Between Justin’s attention-grabbing tattoos, cigarette smoking, and bad boy attitude Brittni quickly chalked him up as “Mr. Wrong.” But his charm was unrelenting, and Brittni’s decision to give Justin a chance quickly turned into the worst choice she ever made.

So that she might be able to move forward.

Now she’s stuck with Justin—literally—and the complicated web of misunderstandings that tied up the truth for two years is about to unravel.

Truck Stops and State Lines (I moved cross country)

This was almost the most boring blog post I have ever written. I packed up and left Las Vegas--I moved cross country, and I made the whole thing sound boring and dreadful--I mean, a lot of it was dreadful; but not because it was DULL. I had mishaps worthy of any middle grade adventure novel, I was the kind of terrified reserved for just before the epic cliffhanger in the best kind of suspense novels...

Only I didn't write any of that down, instead I turned to fiction. It's like to wrong sort of therapy, and I know lots of authors are into it. When life is tough, live outside it. Readers do that too. So I am not too upset that I've ended the book of my life in Las Vegas, because it's only the first in an EPIC multi-book series. I'm only just getting started, and I am honored you are around to see me through it.

The thing about writing books is, it's not often book goes from pen to print in a hurry--and you guys haven't even gotten to see any of the novels inspired by, or set in Las Vegas. I touched the area briefly in Coffin Nails & Other Beasts
but all my novels and novellas were inspired by places I lived before I ever even moved to Las Vegas six years ago.

Right now I am not blogging from truck stops or State Lines. I worried my way through those, and there were many.  Still those ragged places and stresses will live in inspiration for years to come. So now I'm home, home for the next few years anyway; and then it will be time to pack up and move to the next adventure.

Right now, I'm writing on a folding car table in a me-made cubical of unpacked boxes. I thought it would inspire me to unpack them--but that hasn't worked out so far.

COVER REVEAL! Absolution by Carlyle Labuschagne #ABSOLUTION #TheBrokeDiaries

My lovely friend Carlyle Labuschagne is having a cover reveal, RIGHT NOW. Trust me, you want this book on your TBR list!

Confessions of a clone
is book one in The Broken Diaries series of novellas.
Can be read as a stand alone or as a companion novella to 

Expected release date: October 2014
Genre: Upper YA Science Fiction


So my secret is out you say? That would depend witch secret you are referring to. That I am a clone? Everyone knows that by now. Or that I have a dark disease pulsating through my veins, one I am quite fond of? Big deal. It’s exciting, never to have to hold back, unpredictability is a drug. We all crave it.  So what possible secret could I hold that is worth keeping? Imagine me giving you a sly smirk right now because I have not the misfortune of compassion that will cause me to spill my secrets. Without them there is no hand to be dealt.

Will my secret keep him close? Perhaps. But here is my confession, I have something better than secrecy. I have absolution. With me, he is not bound, it will be out of choice. With me, he never has to hold back. And I would love him for the good and especially in the bad. When I gave my word that I’d stop my tricks – I lied. That’s the thing with obsession. I does not care. It only wants, and it is so fixated on want, that it becomes need, and it shall have all it wants and needs.  And while I have no time to ponder who I am, clone – what a stupid word, I am already on my way to loving him forever. That’s how I play it, because I just don’t care.  Everyone knows I am nothing like my pathetic prime. That with me, it’s all bad intentions and violent, narcissistic adoration. That is not who I am. I am but one thing - in absolution.
