Tag: Family Drama
I got notification that my book is finally, fully published on all the platforms I submitted to. One more publishing goal checked off. It's a small goal, but it is still a pretty awesome one. I am also probably going to have to place another order of the paperbacks for myself as all the ones… Continue reading Another Goal!
Looking For Reviewers
I am down to one paperback copy for this and a spot or two for another reviewer. If you or someone you know would like a copy (ebook or print) in exchange for providing a review, please drop me a note or pass this along! Every tiny bit helps, especially as a brand new author in the indie field.
TJ Fox: Sharing the Experience
On to the part of the book process that I dislike with a flaming passion. Pretty much begging for help. As a raging introvert that struggles with most any communication, this part is excruciating, but necessary. That said, I do need some help from anyone that is willing to step forward and volunteer to read my little baby and give me a review. Ideally, I’d like to see reviews spread out in various different places like Goodreads, Amazon, B&N and blogs, but I’m not going to be picky.
I am looking to get between 3 and 5 people willing to write up a review in exchange for a copy of my book. I’ll provide their preferred format, ebook for any platform I’ve published on or a print copy that I can mail to you. If you are posting to a blog, I’ll add a copy or snippet of your review…

An Unexpected Turn Availability
I am posting this for an easy share as it is a single link to all the various platforms An Unexpected Turn is available on. Even if it isn't a genre (women's fiction/family life) you normally read, maybe you have a friend that does and you'd be willing to slide this under their nose or… Continue reading An Unexpected Turn Availability
Baby Lily Leaves & A Reminder
To say that releasing a book is interesting would be an understatement. I'm doing all the things, no matter how much they grate on this raging introvert, I still do them. That said, apparently, BG, is way better at it than I am as she has managed to definitively sell one book to a classmate… Continue reading Baby Lily Leaves & A Reminder
IT'S HERE!!! IT'S HERE!!! IT'S HERE!!! IT'S HERE!!! IT'S HERE!!! Nope. I'm not excited. I'm all calm and cool and not dancing crazily around the house like a little kid at Christmas. Not. At. All. *as I'm trying not to scare the pets with my squeeing like a loon* Book release goal #2 has been… Continue reading IT’S HERE!!!

One Goal Reached!
I didn't set a lot of goals when I decided to publish my book. The ones I did set were small and, hopefully, achievable. Today, I reached my first one. I am now officially in my local library's database and An Unexpected Turn can be checked out by anyone in its ebook form! Today is… Continue reading One Goal Reached!
March Was Good To Me
Normally I'd say you can't get much better than publishing and releasing a book, but... getting to celebrate 18 years with an awesome man ranks right the hell up there. And for that 18th milestone, that amazing, awesome man got me an upgrade for my camera that I've had for over 10 years. I haven't… Continue reading March Was Good To Me
Sweetness And Love Overload
I shared the above image with some friends, over the top excited that I will be holding physical proof of all my hard work in my hands in just a few days. A couple hours later, one of my friends commented and posted her own tracking image showing her copy will be showing up before… Continue reading Sweetness And Love Overload

I am officially live on Amazon with the Kindle version! Happy Book Birthday to me! Please take a few to check it out. The blurb is below.

An Unexpected Turn: Cover Reveal
I have a book cover! I am just over the top giddy about this. My guy really did an amazing job and was incredibly tolerant of the fact that I really didn't know what I wanted outside of my photograph I sent him. He tweaked and nudged and reworked several times, but he got me… Continue reading An Unexpected Turn: Cover Reveal
Page Proofs Are A Thing!
Got my page proofs to review from the designers. I knew this was a thing. I was expecting it, but apparently... still not. It really hit me with this that I will be publishing my book soon. And it is going to look like a real book! Seeing these pages formatted as they will be… Continue reading Page Proofs Are A Thing!
An Unexpected Turn – Cover Hint
I just sent my files off to my cover designer for them to begin work and thought I'd drop a little hint from one of my original images. I'll post a full cover reveal once it is finished and I have a release date!
I have officially completed all edits and proofreading corrections on my book. Now I'm just waiting for my cover designer to request my files and get started. I will announce a release date as soon as I have a more solid confirmation as to when this will be ready.
Beauty In The Details
The snow we got the other day was so perfect. It was crazy cold and the snow wasn't heavy and wet, so what fell was full of perfect snow crystals. This is one of several crazy cool shots that show the intricacies of snowflakes. The shot itself isn't perfect, but I adore that snowflake in… Continue reading Beauty In The Details
Crazy Teen Dating Drama Pt. 2 & Laziness
I am supposed to be working on my last big round of edits. I've managed to get the first half done and was just starting on the second half on Friday when I got a rather distressing text from BG saying that she needs to talk to me about something really important, that she is… Continue reading Crazy Teen Dating Drama Pt. 2 & Laziness
*Sigh* Again, Muse?!
Between working on my edits and dealing with both myself and MC being sick, the last several days have been... fun. The whole not feeling great thing had me taking meds that wouldn't let me sleep. As is so typical for me, my brain simply would NOT shut up in that situation. So, sitting there… Continue reading *Sigh* Again, Muse?!
Back to Crazy
As has been the pattern since I started my book project, everything is hitting all at once again. I got my final round of edits back from my editor the night before a family outing to celebrate MC's birthday (not on the actual day). I still have the actual day to work on, which means… Continue reading Back to Crazy
