RSVP for the party… #FREEbooks #booksale #PulpFriction @AmazonKDP

So—WHOOT WHOOT—it’s my birthday today. :) Yep…um, a long, long time ago on this date a beautiful lady went through agonizing pain and here I be. Nah…just kidding…she said I was the easiest of her three kiddos…I’m such an angel *flutters lashes while looking to the skies*


My point is today is a good day to celebrate…celebrate…dance to the music!

Or I can just have one helluva book sale at Amazon for you. :) (we can do both—dance and save bunches of moolah at the same time, as long as no one actually sees me dancing—think Elaine on Seinfeld…oh yeah that bad *smh*)

So here’s what’s on sale
(warning: due to me waiting last minute because I’m a twerp combined with Amazon’s crazy rules the dates are cock-eyed so I’m listing them below)
(side note: who doesn’t love saying the phrase cock-eyed?):

Pulp Friction 2013
Wicked’s Way series:

Pulp Friction 2014
Whispering Winds series:

So it's kinda more like a birthday weekend+ but I'm good with that. :)

Please go forth and enjoy the party…and my party favor reads *winks* and remember, reviews are great birthday gifts! So after you partake in the festivities please feel free to leave an honest review on whatever site you prefer…I appreciate it. :)

Happy April 30th to all!

Just a friendly reminder to follow your dreams #dreambig #dowhatyoulove #newyorkpost

Recently I got the opportunity to quit my EDJ (evil day job) and take on writing full time. Well, I couldn't pass it up.

Yay for me, right? *whoop whoop and bouncing*

But OMG what a daunting feat…I’m so scared about falling on my well rounded assets.

What if I fail?
What if I can’t earn a proper living?
What if my kiddo starves because I was selfish and followed my dream?
What if my writing really isn’t good enough?
What if…
What if…

But I never stopped to ask myself “What if I succeed?” Holy shit! That’s a concept, right?

What if my attitude improves since I’m no longer stuck in a job I hate?
What if I now get more time with kiddo instead of splicing it between EDJ and being an author?
What if my kiddo learns…
to follow dreams from my example?
to smile more because mommy is?
to not be afraid of taking risks?
What if I succeed?

These short YouTube snippets by the New York Post dubbed Do What You Love are good reminders that I’m not alone in taking risks and putting myself out there…and they motivate me to continue to do what I love so I wanted to share them with you. :)

P.S. On a side note…there are many people that helped me not only make the decision to quit my EDJ and move away from the only home I ever knew to tackle my dreams—but helped me with the logistics of it, also.
I love each and every one of them and will forever be their number one fan/supporter/cheerleader/friend. In all reality they are my family, whether by blood, sweat or tears…and knowing they are in my life by choice and not demand makes everything I do possible. Thank you. <3

Book Blast: The Marrying Kind @PridePromo @jay_northcote #mmromance #bookcontest

The Marrying Kind
Owen & Nathan series – book 2
Cover Artist: Garrett Leigh
Publisher: Jay Northcote

We've got blurbage:
Nathan wants to put a ring on it, but is Owen the marrying kind?

Two years on from their first date, Owen and Nathan are living together and life is good—except they’re not on the same page about marriage.

A traditionalist at heart, Nathan wants it all: the wedding, the vows, and a pair of matching rings. Owen, on the other hand, believes marriage is old-fashioned and unnecessary. They don’t need a wedding to prove their commitment to each other. Love should be enough on its own.

All it takes is one moment of weakness on a night out to force the issue. Owen finds himself engaged after a half-drunk proposal, and Nathan’s enthusiasm sweeps him along. But as the big day approaches, the mounting tension finally combusts.

If he’s going to save their relationship, Owen will need to decide once and for all if he’s truly the marrying kind.

Pages or Words: 35,000 words
Categories: M/M Romance, Romance, Contemporary

And a sneak peek:
Nathan glanced surreptitiously at Owen sitting beside him as Jack and Simon spoke their vows. Jack’s voice was quiet but sure, and Simon’s rang out clearly over the assembled crowd.

Owen’s gaze was fixed on the couple, and his eyes were suspiciously bright. As Nathan watched, Owen cleared his throat and wiped what Nathan assumed was a tear out of the corner of his eye.

Nathan suppressed a smile and turned his attention back to the groom and groom. So much for Owen’s protests that he didn’t see the point in weddings and that they were outdated, pointless events that were stupid even for straight couples unless they were religious. Even if he didn’t believe in the principle of marriage—gay or otherwise—it was nice to see he wasn’t totally immune to the emotion of the occasion. Nathan was going to enjoy taking the piss out of Owen later. But in the meantime, he reached for Owen’s hand and squeezed. Owen squeezed back.

Nathan’s eyes were moist too by the time they’d finished. The part where the celebrant said “I now pronounce you husband and husband” really set him off. Simon looked so utterly radiant after he and Jack finally stopped kissing and turned to face the wedding guests, hand in hand. Jack was flushed and awkward compared to Simon. He obviously wasn’t happy being the centre of attention, unlike his new husband, but his smile was genuine and the joy rolled off both of them, touching everyone in the room.

Nathan sighed. Owen’s hand was still in his. Their fingers were tangled together casually—just like their lives. They’d been in a relationship for over two years now, living together for half of that, and Nathan had never been happier. But looking at Simon and Jack, he wanted more. He wanted that. But he was afraid to ask Owen, because he was pretty sure what his answer would be, and it wouldn’t be the one Nathan hoped for.

She comes from a family of writers, but she always used to believe that the gene for fiction writing had passed her by. She spent years only ever writing emails, articles, or website content.
