where I’m at from A-Z (2/2017 version)

I haven’t written a “Where I’m at from A-Z” blog in a long time. Since my followers seem to enjoy it and I have fun doing it, it’s on! I’m stressed out and feeling a bit out of control about all those things I can’t make happen exactly when I want them to, so we’ll see if these emotions are reflected in my A-Z:

Anxiously awaiting returned emails from several parties, all writing and marketing related.

Busy at my day job and not happy about it. (Although it’s what pays the bills.) I’m on my lunch hour if you’re wondering what I’m doing writing a blog if I’m so busy at work…

Cautiously optimistic about the status of my current work-in-progress. It’s the third book in my Blogger Girl series and the pressure is on to make it as entertaining as the first two. It’s only forty-one pages so far, but you can’t get to page three hundred without first passing page forty-one.

Desperately in need of a cocktail. Thank God tomorrow is Friday.

Enjoying The Perfect Match by Kristan Higgins. It’s the second book in her Blue Heron series and it’s inspiring me to dig deeper in my own writing to bring on the funny and the conflict.

Finding it hard to summon the patience to build a new audience for my chick lit collection. I love my old audience, but unfortunately, I can’t force them to buy the new editions of the books. (Can I?)

Grateful to my fellow Henery Press authors for being so supportive and helpful.

Happy the Amazon reviews for four of my five books merged and hoping the last one will follow soon.

Interested in possibly teaching a class in writing chick lit. They used to offer them at Media Bistro and when things calm down, I’m going to look into it.

Jane! I worked so hard on the revisions of A State of Jane and am so happy with the changes. Some new reviews are in from folks who got the book on Netgalley and they love it too!

Kim vs. The Mean Girl, the young adult prequel to the Blogger Girl series, will be released in April and I’m so excited to share it with you.

Loving the second half of this season of The Walking Dead. I hated seeing Rick and the gang so defeated. I can’t wait until they take down Negan.

Missing my eight-month-old twin nieces, Sammie and Maddie, something fierce. I met them for only the second time last weekend, but I love them so much. I can’t wait to see them again in June for their first birthday.

Not entirely sure this blog post is working for me…

Oh, crap. My lunch hour is over.

Prosecco. I’ll be drinking lots of my favorite bubbly beverage tomorrow night. Tomorrow is Friday, right?

Quantico. I gave up earlier this season. It was too confusing for me and everyone was ridiculously pretty even when they were in the midst of combat. It annoyed me.

Rankings of my novels are not good right now. I know it’s because the books are new and I’m building an entirely new audience from the ground up, but it’s so frustrating. See F above regarding my lack of patience.

Single living is getting old. Does anyone know any eligible men for me? Preferably 38-50 and kind, funny, and good looking (at least to me). Creative is a plus.

The. The title of my next romantic comedy novel from Henery Press (releasing in November) starts with “The” but that’s all the scoop you’re getting from me until at least this summer.

Ugly cried. That’s what I did last night when I watched This is Us.

Virtually drawing a blank for this letter, but not entirely because I came up with “virtually.”

Wine. Wine. Wine. Wine.

Xerox machine. I almost killed the one at my office today. I shook the part of the machine where you enter a billing number and spewed out a string of curse words. I was very irritated with its failure to perform properly and having a moment. I’m not proud of it, but I’m positive it will happen again.

Yellow plays strongly into the cover of Kim vs. The Mean Girl. I’ve never had a yellow cover before and I love it. It’s still being tweaked, but will be revealed in March.

Zee End! (I’ve used that before, I know. It’s my thing.)

Happy release day (times 5)!

Happy Publication Day to me!

With one click (times five), my sassy and humorous romantic comedies with an edge can now be downloaded to your e-reader. If you prefer print copies, don’t despair as all the books are also available in paperback AND hard cover!

Even if you read the previous versions of these books, I encourage you to download the new ones, particularly Just Friends With Benefits as it has been re-written in its entirety. This was my first novel and I think the new version benefits from my writing experience and improved skills (and a fantastic editor…) A State of Jane has also been modified significantly. The other three books are relatively similar to the earlier renditions, but with fun bonus scenes. (hint: more evil Daneen J )

how I spent my “vacation” from being a published author

You might recall the blog I posted in May of 2016 when I told you how my publisher was closing its doors and my books would be temporarily unavailable. I confessed that I had no idea what would become of them, but promised I was working on it. I posted another blog in July, 2016 […]

positive highlights of 2016

img_2394

2016 was a sucky year in multiple ways, from the political mayhem to the premature deaths of too many icons like David Bowie, Prince, Florence Henderson, Alan Thicke, and now George Michael, Carrie Fisher, and Debby Reynolds since Christmas. But as we look forward to a new year, I’m choosing to focus on some of […]

my favorite books of 2016!

tell-me-three-things

It’s been a few years since I wrote my roundup of favorite books of the year, and I decided it was time to revive the tradition. I read about seventy-five books this year and enjoyed almost all of them, but I limited my favorites to twelve (one per month). My list includes books I read […]

public service announcement: don’t call me Ma’am

I’m interrupting my regularly-scheduled editing session to write this blog post. I’m attracted to men with good manners. I find it sexy. I always notice when a man, even a stranger, lets everyone on or off an elevator before exiting himself. I think it’s sweet when a date walks to the passenger side of the […]

Won’t you pre-order my books?

At long last, I’m thrilled to announce that my five chick lit/romantic comedy novels are available for pre-order on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iBooks, and Kobo. If you’ve read the books and enjoyed them, I’d love if you spread the news of their republication. I’d be even more excited if you were so inclined to […]

cover reveals (five of them)!

just-friends-with-benefits-front-under-2-mb

It’s cover reveal time! Revealing one cover is super thrilling, so imagine my excitement to share five at the same time. It’s important to note that I loved my previous covers, but as I commence this new beginning with Henery Press, I’m embracing the change in covers too. And since the insides of the books […]

My Top 5 television lust men

john-gallagher-jr_0

Every once in a while, a television show comes along with a male character that I become so attached to, his fate becomes almost as important to my well being as my own and my friends/family members. I’m typically very attracted to these characters and want them as my own husband, boyfriend, lover etc, but […]

news from my editing cave

I’ve once again been lazy with my blogging, but I assure you I haven’t been lazy in general. I’ve been editing like a mad woman. I told an author friend how exhausted I was after revising three books in a row and she said that editing is so draining, it’s like being hit by a […]
