Things that terrify me about my traditional debut
I joined a Club House room this past week with the Romance and WF club about fears published authors have, for instance, not earning out, no one liking the book etc. While I participated and shared one of my own fears (keep reading for details), in my mind I was racking up way more worries…Read More
AS SEEN ON TV: wishing and hoping
I don’t have a release date yet for my upcoming romantic comedy, AS SEEN ON TV, but the tentative publishing season is Summer, 2022. Despite it being what feels like a very long time to wait, I find myself day dreaming about exciting things to come. It’s easy to do while anticipating releases from other…Read More
I’m still here!
It’s been a while since I’ve posted a blog. I’m sorry about that, but things have been crazy. Today I’ll update you on what I’ve been doing and what’s next for me. The last time I wrote, in mid-February, I announced that I’d signed with a literary agent. Shortly after I posted that blog, I…Read More
I got an agent! (Part Two)
Yesterday, I told you why I decided to seek an agent after so many years. Today, I’ll share a little bit about what it was like for me in the query trenches. I’d hoped to start querying in September, 2018 but revisions of the book took me longer than expected. My next goal was “by…Read More

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…Read More
When I told a close author friend recently how much I hoped all the hard work she was putting into revising her suspense novel would result in a sale to a prestigious publisher, a lucrative advance, and a spot on the New York Times bestseller list, she expressed how much it meant to her that…Read More
Why I love constructive criticism?
Criticism is most often thought of as a negative. Who wants to hear that their outfit is unflattering, their singing voice is out of tune, they lack rhythm when they dance, are a horrible kisser—that in sum, they suck? As a person, I much prefer compliments to insults, and I really don’t like when…Read More
Throwback Thursday Blog – I Choose Happiness!
I’ve been crazy busy and unfortunately, did not have time to write a blog post this week. (In all honesty, I am so inspired by my fourth novel right now that I didn’t make the time to write a blog post this week.) So, I decided to re-post a blog I wrote several years ago…Read More
The Hardest Part – continued.
In my last post, I blogged about the challenges of writing a fiction novel. I acknowledged that writing a book is not easy. The requisite skills aside, it takes a true commitment. For me though, the emotional highs I achieved while writing Just Friends With Benefits were well worth the sacrifices I made to put…Read More
