Strange times

So I'm pretty sure we're all aware that things are strange and difficult right now. COVID-19 is causing a lot of disruption and uncertainty.

Unfortunately, as a caregiver, my job is considered "essential" so I don't have the option or the ability to stay home, but if you do, please stay home. It's not just for your protection, it's for the protection of everyone else. Staying home is how we flatten the curve and hopefully get this pandemic to end sooner rather than later.

In the meantime, if you are at home and looking for something to read, I've got two of my books FREE on Amazon this weekend, The Only One and Finding Home Again. Unfortunately, since No Safe Placewas free just last month, I couldn't make it free again, but it is, as always, available on Kindle Unlimited, as are my other books. If you've already read them, tell your friends, tell your family, spread the word.

Even though my job is considered essential, there's no telling w…

Almost time for spring

It's March! This month will bring about the first day of spring, which always carries that sense of renewal and regrowth and whatnot. Of course, living in Florida, we've been alternating between all four seasons over the past several weeks, but the sentiment is still there.

February was an amazing month for my books. It blew November out of the water, and I still can't quite believe how well the free promo for No Safe Place did. And this is the shortest month of the year! I'll have a nice little birthday present at the end of April, that's for sure.

I'll be doing another free promo for No Safe Place in September (gotta have that Christmas money), so if you missed this one, stay tuned for that one.

I'm still shooting for a summer release for Becoming Family, but it's much too soon to nail down a date just yet. Once I get the cover, though, I'll be posting that on Patreon, so head over there and become a Patron to see the cover before anyone else. It&…

Just a little update

It's the last week of February, and this month feels like it's flown by. Why does January seem to take forever to end, and then February just zips by? We're already almost a quarter through the year.

The No Safe Place free promo did amazing. It did even better than the one for The Only One, which surprised me, because romance always seems to be the number one big category. I think No Safe Place is helped by Finding Home Again, though; people are reading and buying it when they finish No Safe Place, which is wonderful, and what I hoped for. November was my best month ever since I started publishing, but this month is on track to beat it, I think.

The cover for Becoming Family has been commissioned, which means that so far, I'm on track with the schedule I made for myself this year. However, it's looking like the Christmas novel I'd hoped to release may get pushed to next year. I think I can get it written this year, I just don't know if I can get it finished…

What day is it?

Thursday. It's Thursday, and yet I keep thinking it's either Friday or Wednesday. This week has been weird for me, as I had jury selection Monday, got picked for the trial that was supposed to happen today and tomorrow, but then the trial was continued so I didn't actually have to go, but it's thrown my whole week off.

No Safe Place is currently free on Amazon, across all markets, and it's done quite well this week, even better than The Only One did back in October, at least in terms of downloads. There's a little over a day left in the promo, so if you don't have it yet and want it, now's your chance! If you have read it, be sure to tell your friends!

I've been struggling a little bit with Becoming Family the past few weeks, but I'm hoping to get that sorted out fairly soon, and I think I'm still on track to have it published this summer. Waiting on my tax refund to commission the cover, but hopefully I can do that soon, along with an assort…

Happy New Year!

Well, we made it to a new year, and also a new decade. It's the 20's again, maybe we'll see a resurgence of flappers...

I'm especially looking forward to this year, I have to say. I enjoy even numbers, and there's something very satisfying about the year 2020. It feels brand new, and I'm hoping to take full advantage of it.

I have a lot on my plate this year. I've had three amazing months for my books, and I want to keep that going, so I'm looking to doing lots of promotion this year, including a free promo for No Safe Place in February. I'll also hopefully be publishing Becoming Family this summer, and maybe publishing a Christmas novel around the holidays. Keeping that one under wraps for a little bit until I see how things go.

I feel good going into the new year, and I'm looking forward to seeing what 2020 brings. I hope everyone else has a wonderful year as well!
