New Website!!!

I won't be posting here any longer visit me at my new site

Monday, June 29, 2015


Though her father’s suicide still lingers in her mind, Alexis must put aside her grief and take on the role as Alpha of her werewolf pack. Her new position also puts her next in line to be Queen of the supernatural kingdom, the Dark Court, which needs to be united more than ever now that mysterious attacks have been terrorizing the town. Too bad the current queen, Samira, would rather lie and murder her way through a power trip than step down quietly.
As Alexis investigates the murders, she learns corruption isn’t just Samira’s game. Her leadership is being questioned by her very own pack, and after a heart-wrenching betrayal, she isn’t sure if anything is worth protecting. But when Samira makes one last assault, Alexis is the only one who can end her reign of terror forever…that is…if she can find something worth fighting for.
*Previously written under the title THE QUEEN’S HOWL. Expanded Version* (Publication TBA)

Rich Bitch

I always see posts saying “so and so just signed a 3 book six figure deal” and I think to myself…that lucky bastard. L I would give my left tit to get a deal like that...or so I thought. Georgia at Month 9 Books, brought a post to our attention that I will insert HERE.  (SERIOUSLY…CLICK THE LINK AND READ IT…because I don’t want to repeat all of that info)

So anyhoo boo…are you done crying? Ooohh, so like me, you thought you would get that deal and be a rich bitch? Yea…not so much. I really had to reevaluate the goal I had for my writing career.

Initially when I started this journey I was hell-bent on having an agent. In a perfect world I would get this pitbull highly aggressive agent who would get me a kickass deal and make me money (yes…money…I write because I love it…but I want to paid too honey…this is a career for me) and people would know how awesome I am. It took some time and a little trial and error to make me realize, that may not be the way to go.

I won’t go into detail about all the pros and cons for traditional publishing vs self-publishing (but I will make a post about it eventually) but due to my control issues and the need to be hands on, I think self-publishing may be the way to go for me. In the post (told you to read it) the author mentioned some tax stuff that I had no clue about and I definitely intend to take the time and research more.

Um but yeah, I’m struggling and trying to figure out what the right avenue is for me, but right now…getting an agent and going the full length “traditional” route is not for me.

My Baby

I had so many things to post about writing and helpful tips but that was all overshadowed by the loss of my baby boy, Mr. Belvedere. He was my little boy and now he's gone. I wish I had something more positive and upbeat to post but his mama is hurting, and I'm expressing myself the best way I know how.

Georgia McBride, publisher at Swoon Romance, joins HEA to give us a sneak peek at their romances coming this spring.

Georgia: Most of the country has been blanketed in snow for the past few weeks. But today, signs of spring are evident in the call of the birds in my backyard, the bright sun which brought temperatures to 63 degrees in Raleigh, and the rapidly melting snow.

Every spring, I gather a list of titles from Swoon Romance that I think readers might enjoy. Please feel free to comment on your favorite and most anticipated spring contemporary romance titles below.

Young Adult

Snark and Stage Fright, a full-length novel, is the gripping, heartwarming and funny conclusion to the international category bestselling Snark and Circumstance series of novellas by Stephanie Wardrop! In it, Georgia Barrett learns the hard way that happily ever after isn't nearly as happy or close to forever as Jane Austen would have us believe. Georgia's sharp tongue costs her the only guy she's ever really cared about, and the only way to get him back is through a part in the school play!

New Adult

M.L. Spann's debut Swirl is the story of a girl in love with a guy who's off-limits at a time in her life where things are very much out of control. With no career, no place to live and no self-confidence to speak of, Bri has reached rock bottom. After a handsome jerk publicly humiliates her because of her weight, 24-year-old Brianna Davis hits an all-time low. When a friendly barista asks for her help and offers her a job, Brianna wants more than his kindness, she wants his heart.

The Nightingale Effect by Zoe Hardwicke.

When it's your job to save others, sometimes you forget to save yourself. Three nurses who share a waterfront house on City Island, a few miles and a world away from the bustle of Manhattan, find this out the hard way, as they succumb to the pressure and politics of the Intensive Care Unit while juggling the demands of romantic relationships, past and present. The Nightingale Effect is a debut work of women's fiction from Zoe Hardwicke that fans of Jennifer Weiner will enjoy.

We BROKE the Internet

OMG … you guys are so freaking awesome!!! Monday (2/9/15) was my cover reveal and we broke the internet like Kim K. serving full frontal. Okay not really … but my notifications were blowing up!! First of all I had no clue my cover was even revealing. When I got the first notification I was super stoked and then when they kept coming, a permanent smile was plastered on my face. I have received so much awesome support and feedback.

I kinda want to be bothersome and find out how many pre-orders I have. I guess that’s just one of those things when dealing with a publisher…you can’t keep hitting refresh to check stats.

For the most part…I’m still riding the emotional high. I just wanted to pop in and say thank you! Thank you for every tweet, blog post, retweet, Facebook post etc. Just wow…

Check out the hotness of the cover!! AND it’s available for pre-order!!!!! *read the synopsis here*

Monday, February 9, 2015


I am in the process of rebranding and honestly I don’t know what the outcome will be. So much has happened between the last time I posted and now, which was forever ago. I know I keep saying I will start posting regularly, and so far I haven’t, but a change has been ignited inside of me.

I know what you’re thinking…what the hell does that mean? Well it means I started out with such a passion, but no matter the amount of passion, a certain level of fear existed. A crippling fear so very palpable, that it caused me to back away from my passion. Something inside of me snapped recently and I realized that I need to throw caution to the wind and truly invest in myself.

Relying solely on word of mouth on mediocre novels is simply not enough (and I say mediocre in the sense that in my opinion they aren’t presented on a professional level, and that’s completely my fault…an error I’m currently correcting). I had to sit down and ask myself “How serious are you about writing AND being successful at it?”

So now, I’m in the process of getting PROFESSIONAL editing, organizing blog tours, and getting on a schedule. That crippling fear is still there, bubbling just below the surface, but I’m ignoring it (my fingers are in my ears and I’m yelling “blah, blah, blah, blah”).

Changes on all fronts will be major but I’m working to make the transitions as smooth as possible and this time I’m documenting every step of the process. I plan to have blog posts on a regular basis (posts that document my journey and provide helpful writing tips) and I’m working on a YouTube channel to document the process as well.

Stick around….I promise you won’t be disappointed!!!

Later Taters!!!
