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!

If April Showers Bring May Flowers, Do May Flowers Bring June Bugs?

Y'all. May was a crazy month. I had so much fun in Niagara Falls and Gettysburg, attending those two author events (Romancing the Falls and Rockin' Romance Readers, respectively). Mama J came with me, and we had a blast hanging out with  Lisa B. Kamps  again, meeting Christine and Victoria of Sweet & Sassy Reads , and loading up our shelves with books by new-to-us authors! Oh yeah, and I had a book come out, too. :) So even though May was awesome, I'm a little bit glad it's over. I'm still celebrating my latest release, but I'm also getting to work on what's to come. Things I'm up to: Proofing the paperback copy of  Dump and Chase  before announcing that paperbacks are for sale! Working on getting the paperback for  "Christmas Crosscheck"  up and hopefully available for pre-order (I hear it's kind of complicated; for those in the know, Amazon changed their paperback process and I hear some people aren't able to have pre

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

My 2020 Vision

What am I doing writing about 2020 when we’re already one week into February? Well, y’all, let me tell just how crazy everything has been lately! Let me just recap my January for you: On Friday, January 3rd, I had my on-site interview with a company down in Pittsburgh for an open position. On Tuesday, January 7th, I got the offer from HR that, pending a satisfactory background check and drug test, I was hired. On Friday, January 10th, I got the call from the hiring manager that I cleared everything, and we scheduled my first day of work. On Monday, January 13th, I turned in my two-weeks notice at my now former job. And on Tuesday, January 28th, I began my first day of work in downtown Pittsburgh. As you can see from that list, this all happened so fast . My last two weeks at my prior job were spent trying to get the entire  office organized and everyone informed on my responsibilities and what they’d have to take over. After 11 years, 7 months there, the list was long. Bu
