Shots on Net, Available Now!

It's officially official: Shots on Net is now on sale at Amazon.com!

Shannon Klein is a small town girl with big city dreams. She wants nothing more than to leave her hometown of Whitefield, Connecticut, and move back to Boston, Massachusetts—where there seem to be endless possibilities for her career, social life, and love life.

Kevin Browne is an undrafted defenseman looking to break into professional hockey. He gets a chance to show his stuff with the Whitefield Warriors, the AHL affiliate of the Hartford Gladiators, when they offer him a one-year, try-out contract. His only goal is to secure a future playing for the team so he can be one step closer to the NHL.

Through a series of mishaps and well-timed encounters, Shannon and Kevin meet and quickly become friends—and maybe something more than friends, too. But they have to decide how much of their respective dreams they're willing to compromise in order to be together.

I'm so glad to finally have this eBook available for everyone. I had originally started writing this particular idea back in 2010, so it's been a long time coming! This is my first attempt at a totally new storyline, which has been a scary and daunting task for me. I don't want to disappoint!

Anyway, let me know what you think either by reviewing on Amazon, GoodReads, or leaving me a comment below!

                                                                                                                                           

But, honestly, wrapping up this story couldn't have come at a better time. The end of the year is always a really busy time for me, with the holidays coinciding with end of the year and the end of the quarter at work. On top of that, my boss will be traveling to Europe in November, and I'm stage managing a production of the kids' Christmas show at the local theatre. Phew! I've really got my work cut out for me coming up.

Now, all that being said, I'm a writer at heart—and writers have to write! I've got the next story lined up. Actually, it's something that I started writing back in the spring of 2012. I dusted off my flashdrive and was surprised to find that, unfinished, it's already longer than Shots on Net! I don't know if I'll be able to work on it much between now and January, but I'm thinking about chronicling my writing process this time around, so all you lovely readers can see what it takes to go from an idea to the finished product. Plus, that means I'll have to blog at least once a week—so I won't fall off the grid again!

And, in the meantime, have a happy, safe, and scary Halloween!

Kissing 2018 Goodbye / Bring It On, 2019!

Listen. New Years always freaks me out. Any occasion that encourages me to look back at the past while simultaneously looking toward the future is just... super stressful. I've said it before (I say it at the end of every year!) that December is crazy between work and the holidays and social engagements.

My natural tendency is to think about all the things I didn't do and chalk it up as failing to accomplish my goals. As I reflected on my 2018, I went back to read last year's blog post about my 2018 resolutions, and I kept it simple last year: rein in my spending. And, in some aspects, I accomplished that. I cut down on ordering pizza when I felt too lazy to cook, I didn't add (very much) to my TBR pile by buying books I knew I wouldn't immediately start reading, and I only saw a handful of movies in the theatre (of course I made exceptions for Marvel movies, and my mom and I went to see Book Club because it looked too good).

But I totally fell flat on the writing …

Dude. May. WTF.

May has been... an interesting month so far (and we're only one-third of the way through. Phew!).

If you're friends with some authors on Facebook or Twitter,  you've probably seen the insanity and the accompanying hashtags. It's not my intention here to go into the matter; there are plenty of places online to get the details. And while I did a little rage-venting on my own profile, I don't want to publicly feed into this riotous frenzy while the courts and attorneys are working toward a resolution. I do, however, want to take a moment to say that the indie author community is a supportive, close-knit group that I'm proud to be a part of. And it's because of readers like you, who choose to support not only myself but so many authors who work hard and try to give you the best possible books.

Okay, moving on.

So, what have I been up to? Well, I've been buzzing around, prepping for my trip to Philly this weekend. I'll be at Unmask the Romance in Phoeni…

Author Spotlight: Melanie Ting

Melanie Ting and I go way back, to when we were anonymous authors posting serialized stories on-line. We talked about writing and bonded over hockey and cats—which, incidentally, are two of Mel's favorite writing topics. She's just released her second full-length novel entitled Hockey Is My Boyfriend, Part One. The synapsis:

Wouldn’t it be great if you could tell exactly what a guy was like… before you went on a date with him? Kelly Tanaka can. After years of playing hockey with guys, she believes that how a guy acts on the ice is a good indicator of how he’ll be as a boyfriend.

So far, she’s only used this superpower to help her girlfriends, because Kelly’s not really into dating. However, when blond and beautiful Nicklas Ericcson comes along, her theories are put to the test. But then tall, dark, and smoking Phil Davidson insists he’s a better hockey player and a better potential boyfriend. What’s Kelly to do?

Hockey Is My Boyfriend is a smart and funny journey into…
