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!

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

Get Ready for Hockey Holidays!

It's November! And while I usually refuse to celebrate the holidays until after Thanksgiving (which is my favorite of the US holidays, and I think it's truly underappreciated!)—but this year is different. Why? Because 'this the season for Hockey Holidays ! He's sooo pretttyyyy... I've joined a team of hockey romance authors to bring you this epic anthology. And my contribution is "Christmas Crosscheck," which tells the tale of Georgiana and Bryan 's first Christmas together. And—spoiler alert!—there's a proposal. You'll have to read it find out the rest! The anthology, for which all proceeds will be donated to a hockey charity, will release on November 13, so there's still plenty of time to pre-order to make sure you get this book on your eReader ASAP on release day! And we'll be celebrating like crazy next week. First up, on the 13th, we'll be in the L. Woods PR Romance Room starting at 7. And then the party continu

Big Things Are Happening [Finally]!

It's been a while since I've blogged, mostly because I had nothing to say. But I'm happy to say that now that I do! I've hit a major breakthrough with Dump and Chase, book #5. It's almost done! Just a few more chapters to go, and then it goes out to alpha/beta readers, and then it'll go out for ARCs. (Are you a member of my ARC team? If not, you can still sign up !) What does that mean as far as a release date? End of May, early June. I'll know more once the chapters are done and I get back the initial feedback. You guys have no idea  how good it finally feels to have a more concrete idea of when this book will be out (I've only been writing it since... 2017!) I've fought through a lot of impostor syndrome along the way; it's hard to feel like a writer when the writing isn't happening like you want it to. I've barely been on social media as a result. And just in time! Because "Christmas Crosscheck" is releasing on i
