NaNo 2014

It's that time again...

November Novel Writing Month ~ OR ~ NaNoWriMo

50,000 words in 30 days

For this year's challenge I'm continuing to work on my current work in progress,
HANDLER, a NA/Dystopian stand-alone.


Our world was perfect––until we broke the law: Don't go out at night.

Utopian by day, dystopian by night; this is the world I recently discovered. I now struggle with the fact that our whole society has been based on a lie. There's only one way to change it––conquer the darkness we've all been raised to fear.

Live the lie; fight to the death; become a Handler. It's the only way.

. . . . .

Hopefully, I'll be a NaNo winner and have this baby off to the editor by early December.

Wish me luck! :)

Welcome to the Read 'Em & REAP Blog Hop!!

Find out what draws us ~Grim~ Authors to the write about the reapers we love, and enter to win a bunch of great prizes along the way!

Let's get started, shall we...

1.  What first piqued your interest in writing about reapers?

My book, RAVEN'S BREATH, was inspired by my cover designer, Regina Wamba.
The pre-made she had available (which is now the front of Raven's Breath) spoke to
me and I instantly knew I wanted to write about a Grim Reaper who could suck the
life from you as part of her job. (The souls resemble the inky wisps on the cover.)

2.       What makes your reapers different?

Besides the fact that Raven is the first FEMALE grim reaper in history, it's the extra
abilities she possesses that not only allow her to siphon the life from you, but also
save you, given the right circumstances.

3.        Are your reapers Heroes or Villains?

Heroes all the way! Well, except that one...

The Women of Purgatory:  A new adult Urban Fantasy series, featuring three bad-ass women who leave their mark on Heaven, Purgatory, and Hell.

Will she be your Grim Reaper or your Saving Grace?

Raven can breathe life into you, or siphon the life from you...the choice is yours. 

They say your life flashes before your eyes when you die. But what you didn't know...your last thoughts determine whether Raven becomes your grim reaper or your saving grace.

Death has a sinister plan, but his favorite female reaper has been given a new power that will combat his secret mission. The only issue...she hasn't discovered it yet.

Will Raven put the pieces together in time, or will Purgatory be destroyed forever?

Halloween Flash Fiction...Presented by the Coastal Magic Convention

I'm so excited to be attending the Coastal Magic Convention in Daytona Beach , FL, coming up in February 2015, and was THRILLED to get the invite to participate in the Halloween Flash Fiction event!!!

The attending authors were given picture prompts that we had to write a short and "creepy" story based on.

Here's my prompt:

While I'm not sure if my story is "creepy" enough, I will be using it as a scene in my upcoming book, Queen of The Witches, which I thought was pretty darn appropriate for Halloween! LOL

So...without further ado, click HERE to be linked to my Flash Fiction story! Happy reading and Happy Halloween! I hope you all have a blessed Samhain!!

Penned Con Recap

To say Penned Con was a positive event for me, is somewhat of an understatement. I had such a great time meeting new authors and of course, YOU, the readers!!!

For a quick recap, I've compiled a brief synopsis of what I learn at Penned Con:

1.) I'm a huge fan of cool ass people and I had the pleasure of meeting a TON of them.

2.) I was so thankful to the authors who allowed me into their bubbles and were genuine and gracious! There are those moments where you want to make new connections but are never sure how you'll be received, and thankfully, every one of the ladies with whom I connected with were true gems!

3.) To all the readers who came to see me and the new fans and friends I made...THANK YOU doesn't seem like enough. I never imagined that I'd actually sell out of any books or meet so many people with whom I'd truly have a connection with. I'm so humbled by your support! 

4.) Last but not least, it's now a proven fact that Amy and Rick Miles h
ave their shit together! I am so grateful to have been a part of this amazing event that raised over $11k for Action for Autism, and I can't wait to return next year! And yes... I already have my table! ;)

Hope to see you back in St. Louis, July 23-25, 2015!
