Encore! Encore!

It’s happening again! Saturday at 12pm will mark my second in-person author appearance at the GA Sweet as a Peach Author Event!  Clickety click the link for more info and tickets.

There will be tons of amazing authors with tons of amazing books to sign, goodie bags, raffles, giveaways, and something extra special to benefit a wonderful organization called The Place. I have to tell you, I’ve been watching the lengths to which the organizers are going to make this event amazing and you definitely won’t want to miss it. These ladies are superhuman, I tell you! ❤

As before, I’ll try to memorialize the occasion with photos and social media posts, but the best way to experience it is to  come see me! I’d love to meet some of my readers. If you’re in the area, please do stop by. Not just for me, but for all the authors and guests. Check out some books, and support a great cause. 🙂

A handful of days is standing between me and a nerve-racking flight to Atlanta, GA. I’m not packet yet, and there’s still so much to do, it’s no less stressful than the first one. Does it ever get easier?

I hope so!


Indy Author Event This Weekend

It’s happening! Saturday at 12pm will mark my very first in-person author appearance at the Indy Author Event. Clickety click the link for more info and tickets (they will not be sold at the door, so purchase online before you head out).

As this will be a Huge Big Thing for me, I thought I would share some of my trepidation. I’ve been putting out fires and setting contingency plans into motion for two weeks now. But this is good! It means I can get all the stress out now so that by the time the event starts, I’ll be emotionally exhausted, pleasantly numb, and mentally present to put on a good show. Yes, my hands are, in fact, shaking as I’m typing this.

What you’ll find at my table:

  • Great books ready for signing
  • Pretty bookmarks (or, as some call them, “quitter strips”)
  • Printed book lists with covers, ISBNs, and handy check boxes to mark what you already have and what you want to get. 😉
  • Versatile tote bags
  • Wolfen “inspirational” dog tags (when you see them, you’ll understand the quotes and why it’s funny)
  • Rebel Court bracelets
  • Chocolates (while supplies last–which likely won’t be long because I’ll probably stress eat them all)

As you will notice around the good ole website, I have dressed for the occasion and updated some book videos. You can check them out on the Books page and admire the pretty animations and kick ass book covers. 😉

Come see me! ❤ Seriously, it’s shaping up to be a massive, and massively fun event with tons of amazing authors and goodies to be had. And I’ll be there! That’s gotta count for something, right? Share your photos and videos, too. I’ll definitely be sharing mine.

And now I think I need a stiff drink. Or pizza…

Finding my Voice in 2019


So, I did a thing…

A few days ago I was asked to do an interview and live podcast for Lauretta Kehoe’s Authors Corner. It wasn’t supposed to happen until a week or two down the road but she had a last minute opening in her schedule so, with very short notice, I ended up live on air last evening.

My very first time doing anything like this. Not stressful at all (she says shuddering with residual anxiety). The link above will take you to the written interview. Click here to listen to the recorded podcast where I share some tidbits about my books, Prince of Deceit, and what I have planned next.


As if the one-hour interview wasn’t enough talking for one month…

But “adapt or die” right?

I decided to dip a toe out of my comfort zone and do an actual author reading (not live, for introvert reasons). It’s another first for me so I kept it short and sweet(ish). If you’re into this sort of thing, you can listen to the 7-minute excerpt recording on SoundCloud. I don’t think audiobook narration is in my future. But I may do some more excerpts like this, if there’s interest and if I have the time.

Is there a passage from one of my books you’d like to hear me read? Let me know!

Book Signings Pre-Order Form Live

A quick check-in to announce that the pre-order form for my two book signings this year is now live! 🙂 Since I’ll be sharing a table at both events, I’ll be limited for space and won’t be able to stock all of my 12 print titles for the events. I have chosen a few (including Helena) that I’ll definitely have in stock. The rest are available for pre-order, and I’ll only bring as many of those as get ordered. 🙂 If you’re attending one of the events, use this form to pre-order the books you would like to get signed: http://bit.ly/ADPreOrder2019.

I am currently hard at work on Prince of Deceit, which is now at about 80,000 words in length. To give you a basis for comparison, The Royal Wizard came in at 103,000 words, and Dragonblood at 120,000. I anticipate this one will be somewhere between those two, so I’m getting close to the finish line! There is a possibility I may finish it in time to have copies available at one or both of the signings as well but, since the timing depends in large part on edits, I can’t make any promises on that score. I would rather take a little extra time to make sure it’s done right than rush it to have something on the table. I will share updates as things progress a little more.

Until next time!
