Facebook Author Page

Just a quick note to share the link for my Facebook author page. I hope you'll take a second to "like" it. You can view my page HERE

Things are moving along quickly with LUCKY BREAK. There's only about a month to go before it will be available. It's exciting and scary.

I'll be back with more soon. Hope your summer is going well and you're staying cool!

Editors are Awesome

As you know, I recently sold my romance, LUCKY BREAK to Entangled Publishing. I've been editing like a machine ever since. I've gone through some pretty tough rounds. Not hard really, just in-depth and requiring a lot of work.

Which is GOOD. I'm thankful for that.

Fast forward to my new work in progress. As I'm writing this new book, I've noticed myself looking for the things I had to work on in the first book. A lot of the time, I don't realize I'm doing it. I'm also paying more attention to each line as I write it for those little things that would slip by me before.

I have what I call, "fall back words" that I didn't know I had. They're certain words that I "fall back" on a lot. Words that I now know to look for as I'm writing and to do a search for afterward.

It's fun to see these little changes in my writing in such a short amount of time. It might change my process a little, but I think that can be a good thing, too.

Okay, that's all from me for today. The muse is calling and I have a super funny scene in my head that I want to get down.

Happy Sunday.

What are you working on? Reading anything good?

My New Digs

I like to rearrange my house a lot. It drives my husband crazy sometimes. He'll come home to a half-moved living room and a need for his muscles to continue. I didn't need muscles for the website, but I did need Jolene Perry's mad skills. LOL.

I told her what I wanted to do with a big NO RUSH. I'm in the middle of some heavy (but fun) edits and she's doing a billion things because that's just how she rolls. Still a few hours later I had a ton of headers to choose from (hard to do), but I'm really happy with the one I picked! It's fun, flirty, and sweet, IMO, which exactly what I wanted.

So, why leave Wordpress, you might ask? While it's fab for so many things I just don't have those same skills a lot of people do. My poor friends had to help me when I wanted to make any kind of change, other than blogging.

Which led me here! A new online home and I plan to stick around.

Hope you'll come back too.

Oh, and you see that little follow box off to the side? Click it. Follow me. You know you want to :)

Are you obsessive about rearranging like me? Like my new website?
