Best. Day. Ever.
There are certain goals you set for yourself as an author. They’re lofty and huge…things you see yourself achieving…..one day.
One of my main goals, like many other authors was to make a list. You say this phrase around any author and we immediately start salivating. It’s like the Oscars of the publishing world…only it happens every week and we don’t get to borrow diamonds from Harry Winston and wear fancy dresses. That would be kind of awesome though…
Never in a million years would I have imagined I’d see a title of mine on a list less than a year since I first published.
I’m humbled. I’m speechless…okay, not really–obviously. But I’m incredibly grateful.
Thank you to everyone who has fallen in love with the characters from the Ready series–those of you who have reached out to me and shared your own stories of heartache and love. You mean the world to me and I can’t begin to express to you how much this wild ride over the past year has changed me–for the better.
You guys are amazing. <3
It’s Cover Reveal Time Again!!
As some of you know, a few months ago I wrote a novella entitled Ready to Wed and donated it to charity.
For three months, Ready to Wed was included in an anthology called Pink Shades of Words which raised money and awareness for the Fifty Shades Breast Cancer Team in Santa Barbara, CA. In that time, we were able to raise over $3,500. It was an amazing thing to be a part of and I am so honored to have been asked to participated in the 2015 anthology as well.
Since the anthology was a short time publication, many readers began asking me if I planned to republish Ready to Wed. I can know share with you that yes, I do plan to re-publish and soon!
On June 16th, Ready to Wed will be republished on its own…with it’s own beautiful cover!!
But, that’s not all!! In addition to the original novella, I will be including a never-before published short story entitled Never Been More Ready which features fan favorites Leah and Declan!
Moving onto that cover!! A huge thanks to my amazing cover designer, Sarah Hansen with Okay Creations and my very talented photographer K. Keeton. Also, I have to give a shout out to my beautiful cover models Lindsey Houser and Nathan Weller for once again bringing Clare and Logan to life.
So without further ado, here is the cover and blurb for Ready to Wed!!
Official Ready to Wed Blurb:
“You are my family, my future and my forever.”
After a long road filled with trials and tears, they’ve finally made it to the other side—a place where beginnings are made. Life is always an uphill journey, but together, they are ready for anything.
Be there when Clare Murray becomes Mrs. Logan Matthews…
Ready to Wed…a novella from the bestselling Ready series.
Includes bonus short story, Never Been More Ready, which gives readers a glimpse into the lives of Leah and Declan as they prepared for one of life’s greatest joys – parenthood!
It’s finally HERE!!!
Make sure you grab your copy of the latest installment of the Ready Series!!
ON SALE at a reduced introductory price for TWO DAYS ONLY!!
The Entire First Chapter!!
Okay, so here I am on a beautiful sunny Tuesday morning, sipping my coffee…going through emails and suddenly I realize it’s Tuesday.
Yeah, I know. It’s not a newsflash. But when you work from home, the days sometimes all mesh together and you forget…a lot.
On Tuesdays, I like to do this thing on my Facebook page called Teaser Tuesdays. I’ll either post a few lines from the current manuscript I’m working on, or if we are getting ready for a release….I like to do a big, pretty graphic teaser.
Those big, pretty graphic teasers take time. I’m incredibly picky. Naturally, I start to panic. I don’t have two hours to make a teaser, but I want to give my readers SOMETHING!
What do you give your readers less than a week before a release when they are practically at your doorstep, begging you to hit that damn publish button already?

Ready for You (The Ready Series #3)
Eight years ago, Garrett Finnegan’s world shattered the day Mia vanished from his life. He’s been struggling to pick up the pieces ever since. Haunted by memories and ghosts of the past, he chooses a solitary existence rather than risk his heart again.
Mia Emerson has made one wrong decision after another but none worse than walking away from the boy who stole her heart so long ago. When her new life is turned upside down, she finds herself returning to her roots and the hometown she left behind. Maybe now she can find a way to heal from the devastating mistakes of her past.
When a chance encounter brings these former lovers together, passion reignites in a way neither is prepared for. Can Garrett move beyond his anger and find a way to forgive? Will Mia’s insecurities and fears cause her to once again flee the life she’s destined to live?
Garrett and Mia will soon discover that they must journey into the past to find their way home.
The word Newsletter….
I’ve been told over and over that I need to do a newsletter.
The word “newsletter” scares the bejesus of our me. It sounds so formal and…repetitive. Like, do I have to do that all the time? I can barely remember to feed my dogs.
So, here is the closest thing you will get to a newsletter from me, unless my publicist or PA take over. (hint, hint)
