I have SOOOO much work to do, but I'm super excited. I'm looking at a possible cover release date of 9/14/2012 with an internet book tour scheduled for 10/20/12 - 11/1/12! I can't believe it's almost here. I'd better get busy!!

How I write

Someone asked me today how I write. (Do I use outlines, topic boards, etc.?) It might sound crazy...but I just develop a basic idea, then put my fingers on the keyboard and type. The characters have their own story to tell, so I let them.

An excerpt from The Perfect Clone 3

An excerpt from The Perfect Clone 3

"At what point in life do you look back and start regretting some of the things you’ve done…or haven’t done?”

Laura didn’t know the answer to that, but she did know that everything she’d ever gone through, had led her to this very moment.

My author photo to follow soon. I finally acquired a photographer. He's willing to work with me and I trust him... how great is that???
Not only have I started a dystopian trilogy...I've started a paranormal trilogy. Right now I need to focus on finishing up my Perfect Clone trilogy (I'm on chapter 4 of book 3 as I type this). The Clone series should be available very soon (finishing up artwork and a cover reveal soon). Hoping the YA paranormal will finished before year's end, with the dystopian trilogy being available by spring

I'm learning as I go. The agent rejection process has only encouraged me to push forward. Going Indie author is turning out to be an experience unlike any other. The research, self marketing, planning, searching...etc., is keeping me on my toes. Waiting for the typographic artwork to be completed for the first two books in the Perfect Clone trilogy. As soon as that's complete, I'll post the cover and make the eBooks available.

Push forward. Live is a's up to us how we drive it!

I have an unshakable fetish for a good mystery and anything paranormal, along with an insatiable appetite for coffee and travel. When I'm not reading the novels of so many great authors, I'm creating stories of my own. My family keeps me grounded, my pets keep me jumping, my friends keep me focused, and I do it all in Texas!
Sometimes, when we take a moment to breathe, the mundane everyday tasks, take on tremendous meaning.

I'm a book reading, writing, coffee addicted, red bull fanatic with an internet gaming fettish.

Life is simple. Live. Laugh. Love...and when you can no longer do up a can of whoop ass and make it all better. Life is all about sunshine, rainbows, and sugar free Red Bull.

Two cups of coffee & a sugar free Red Bull later, and book 2 is reformatted for the Kindle! Where did the morning go? I look down at the laptop and the next thing I know it's late afternoon. :)

My coffee products have been restored and my fingertips are itching to get after it. As I await for my eBook cover to be completed, a new idea for a book 3 has come to mind! I'm eager to toss the words onto the pages. Not sure I'll get any sleep tonight.
