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-orders for hard copies).
  • Getting prepped and ready to celebrate Christmas in July! Stay tuned for details.
  • Organizing my 2020 schedule! Yes, already.
  • Working on my top secret project that doesn't have a name because I don't have titles yet. Yes, titles, which means more than one book is involved!
  • Jotting down the ideas that won't stop coming about Dallas Comets book #7 (which does have a title, but I'm not revealing that just yet;) ).
  • Dreading my upcoming dentist appointment.
  • Ugh, what am I going to make for dinner tonight?
Oh, you probably don't care about those last two things!

Proof copy!

If you read Dump and Chase, maybe you found a couple Easter eggs in there. One of them has to do with the project I'm working on now. It's not a Dallas Comets book, but it's still gonna be about hockey. So, any guesses on what it might be? I'll be dropping hints in my Facebook group as I work on the project before the big reveal.

Oh yeah, and maybe I'll be giving away a signed paperback of Dump and Chase in my group in the near future. :)

And of course, I'm trying to plan something fun this summer. Maybe not a full vacation, but something fun and relaxing. What's everyone else got planned for the coming months? Share some inspiration with me and tell me!

Meanwhile, I'll be huddled in my office to get some work done.

As always, happy reading!

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
