Tripped Up New Year’s Eve

****Only read after The New Ever After. ┬áThis contains some indirect spoilers!**** Three years ago, Peter had been in NYC with a date his agent had set him up with. He couldn’t remember her name but he did remember her pout after he refused her invitation to come to her place. He sent her home with his driver and he walked the 32 blocks to his apartment to clear his mind. He remembered, so clearly, the unsettled feeling he had that night. He was about to turn forty and was having a mid-life crisis of sorts. He had thrown himself … Read more…

Touring

Both of my books, Tripped Up Love and The New Ever After, are on tour across the internet. They are visiting different bloggers around the world. In most cases I have written a post for the different bloggers and many have read and reviewed my books. It is a great opportunity for me and for other authors. I am so grateful to the fabulous women who have spent so many hours organizing these tours. Stop by the different sites and show them some love! Tripped Up Love is on tour with Chick Lit Plus.

I live to ride…kind of

I hate roller coasters. I can’t stand that feeling of anticipation before the big drop. You know that moment when you’re teetering on the edge of the drop and you have no idea what’s ahead of you?

Kismet and Pierced Hearts

You know I believe in destiny, kismet, fate and all that jazz. Silent moments, spoken words, missed opportunities…I believe it all happens for a reason. This afternoon I met with my editor. We reviewed the edits for the last part of my next book and we started talking about book three. I have a clear idea and sketchy outline for the next book. We said good-bye and I got in the car. The radio was on and it was playing a song I hadn’t heard before. The singer’s voice was so strong and I started listening to the words. The … Read more…

We’re supposed to be together

Let me set the scene…this is an excerpt from Heather’s memoir about her life with Hank. Part of this is in The New Ever After, but the rest is only right here for your eyes only! Enjoy! ***This is fiction! Even though I used some names from my real life, there is NO TRUTH to this excerpt! It has not been edited either. My editor is probably cringing!*** Hank asked me to the prom as we passed each other on the steps between third and fourth period one day in school. I said no and rolled my eyes at him. … Read more…
