The Runaway Queen is Free Through Cyber Monday!

Image
Here's a snippet from my romance novella, The Runaway Queen, free through Cyber Monday at Smashwords and Instafreebie. And if you love it, please leave me a review on Amazon. That would be much appreciated. Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Shopping. Stay safe out there!😘 "He turned toward her, trying not to laugh. Rosamund could see for the first time light blue-green eyes, framed by coppery lashes and brows that had lightened by the sun. She cocked her head and squinted for a closer look. The center of his eyes were dotted with flecks of gold. They were so different from Colestus’s cold-blooded, fathomless eyes, narrow slits that always followed her like an animal stalking prey. Gabriel’s were wide, full of color and contrast, and most importantly, warmth. At that moment, Rosamund knew that she could spend the rest of her life looking into those very beautiful eyes.
“They’re green,” he said, smirking playfully. “At least, that’s what my mother tells me.”
“That’s far too simple a…

My Son Got Married, but I'm Still Editing!

Okay, here's the deal.

I published my little novella titled The Runaway Queen. It's getting lovely reviews. I would love more. Feel free to snag it for free at Instafreebie or Smashwords and all other retail outlets. It's only .99 cents at Amazon. It would also be grand if you signed up for my newsletter. There is a tab on the far right on my homepage:)

So, getting Between Fire and Fury published is taking waaaaay longer than I thought. Of course, it had absolutely NOTHING to do with my son's wedding. Nothing. Ha!

Well, a little. I'd forgotten a friend's birthday in October and she told me not to worry, that weddings take up A LOT of brain space. For realzzz! And I'm the mother of the groom. The mother of the bride must've gone insane. I do happen to know she slept in so long the day after the wedding that her husband was really worried about her;) But she's okay, just got tuckered out.

Here's the update: I just finished correcting all the line …

No More Halloweens to Go!

Image
If you're a missionary mom like me (a mother whose kid is serving a 2 year mission for the LDS Church), then you understand the title of this post perfectly. This is my son's second Halloween from home. He was out just a few months last Halloween. I take great joy in knowing that for the next one, he'll be home. Today was General Conference for the LDS Church and while listening to some very uplifting talks about life and trying to be a better person, I spent my time crafting this little number. He'll give most of the candy away (cuz he's nice like that), but I think he'll enjoy the graphics and know that I've been thinking about him. Hopefully, it will make him smile. I had a blast putting it together, kind of like a scrap book for The Nightmare Before Christmas. Enjoy! Feel free to copy away!

Cover Reveal

Image
Drum Roll, Please. . .
Here is the cover for my novella. It turned out far lovelier than I expected. Thanks Desiree Deorto for her imagination and fine talent. This series of books I'm writing revolve around the burden of ruling during the medieval period, and OF COURSE, romance. It's difficult, dangerous, even life threatening and so I kept thinking that a symbol for that experience would be a broken crown. Desiree just ran with it. 
Anyway, the book is live starting August 31st. It's super cheap, only .99 cents at Amazon. I'll run promos soon so you can pick it up for free. So, just wander on over there if you'd like to snag it. I'm pricing it low as way to introduce readers to my work and encourage them to sign up for my newsletter. That's where I'll have the best news about my upcoming publications, promos, freebies, and adventures. You can sign up HERE! I would love to have you along for the ride. Don't forget to offer your honest review at Ama…

Finally Getting Real

Image
Hey all! Just wanted you to see the pretty banner for my newsletter. The background is partly from the cover of my novella. I'm hoping to do a cover reveal next week, still working out a few details. It's finally getting real and I'm very excited! I'm hoping to have the book ready for Labor Day for those of you who'd like a good read for the weekend:)



A Little Breathless

The last time I checked in, I had a lot in the works.
I'm happy to say that I've met my writing goals despite having an incredibly busy summer writing, learning how to create newsletters, getting my books ready for publication, gardening, traveling, and planning a wedding.

Breathless to say the least. . .
I'm on the cusp of publishing a prequel novella titled The Runaway Queen. The final editing and formatting is done. My cover designer emailed the cover a few days ago and I am in love. It's so pretty. The cover reveal is going to be awesome! It's really just a matter of days before this little story of mine is ready for readers. Now, it's time to focus on Between Fire and Fury, the first in the series. The editor is set to rock-n-roll and the cover designer will begin work the last week of August. If the stars align for me, I hope to have this one available by September or October at the latest. I knew writing time would be hard to come by during the busy summe…
