Plans for 2015

I've never been good at keeping up with writing in a journal or a blog. But, to be fair, I haven't had much to update. Or anything, really.

My writing started falling off last summer. I hate that it happened, but it did. I'm working on getting back on track; I've written a little bit today, and I'm pledging with this blog post that I will continue to keep writing! Even if it's only a couple hundred words a day, it's important that I dedicate some time each day to write. I even have a new planner set up so I can make deadlines for myself. It's color-coded and everything!

I'm still working on The Back Up, my story about back-up goaltender Lincoln Reynolds. I'm a couple of chapters in, and I don't know how long it will be. It could end up being just a novella, or maybe it will be a full-length novel. But I'm anxious to get that out to you guys.

I'm also working on getting Play the Man set up with a new cover and to release that in paperback. Oh, and I'm also working on getting "A Valuable Trade" ready for its independent release, my short story submission for the 2014 Seduced by the Game anthology.

Those are all my goals for 2015! And with two months already gone, I have no time to waste.

I have a notebook with a few new ideas jotted in there. Some hockey-related, some completely different than anything I've written before. Needless to say, I'm excited to explore those avenues, too! I have a lot that I want to get to, which means it's time I start buckling down.

Hopefully you'll hear from me soon with more news. I'm off to see if I can't finish off another chapter tonight!

2017's To-Do List

In my last blog post, I reflected on last year's resolutions and settled on this year's. But there's a difference between resolutions and tasks . Resolutions are changes that I want to instill in myself for the coming year and beyond. But there are also tons of tasks that I want to accomplish in 2017 to make it the best year yet. I want to:    star learning French    get all dressed up for a fancy evening    attend a wine tasting    try yoga    read more    travel somewhere I haven't been before Of course, this is just a short list off the top of my head. Is there anything you're looking to cross off your bucket list this year? Let me know in the comments!

Classy, Crafty, and Super Sassy

After releasing two books in the span of two months, I've been doing a bunch of different things. Some of it is working on what I've been calling my "Top Secret Project." I think it's gonna be a trilogy, taking place on a new team. I'm trying to get the entire trilogy ready for a quick release schedule. If I can manage it, I'll have it out by the end of the year, but no guarantees! I've also been enjoying my summer! Last year, I felt like I had wasted my summer. I didn't want that to happen this year. So I instituted Pool Day, which was every Wednesday at the community pool (weather permitting, of course). I went to see one of my favorite bands, Jimmy Eat World. I went to the zoo with my friend and her little one. I've already been to the Pittsburgh Renaissance Festival once, and I'm sure I will be going again. What else? I've tackled a huge project that's been sitting on my shelf for far too long. What's that

Hottie Hockey Hunks Blog Hop—GIVEAWAY!

Good morning, and happy hockey! Today is officially the start of the 2013-14 NHL season, and I for one couldn't be happier. Well, I'll be happier on Thursday when the Penguins play the Devils for the season opener, but I suppose I'm just being picky. Anyway. Have you ever heard of a blog hop? I hadn't—until I was invited to join one! So let me explain: bloggers with common interests unite to promote each other. So below, I have a link of seven other hockey romance writers you might be interested in. If you're familiar with me, then you've probably heard of Melanie Ting—a fellow writer who got her start in Blogger. But you should check out these other ladies and maybe find some new authors to enjoy! As a part of the Hottie Hockey Hunks Blog Hop , I'm sponsoring a giveaway (cue flashing lights! Cue trumpets!). I've decided to give a free copy of my new novel, Shots on Net , to one lucky reader who comments on this post! Please leave your e-mail addre
