Ay chihuahua! I'm a little late posting about the Fight Like a Girl giveaway.
This giveaway is being hosted at BookFunnel and the organizer is awesome! (Not me, lol!) The organizer is Richard Parry and he's a cool dude. (I downloaded his book too.)

Of course, I'm in this giveaway, but that's not the point.

There are some great authors involved in this giveaway, but you gotta hurry if you want in. The Fight Like a Girl giveaway, ends tomorrow 7/23/17.

Oh my goodness! I am so excited! I got a 5-star review from for DARK SKIES.
If you'd like to check out the review, here's the link.
Dark Skies only has one review on Amazon right now.  So, I was super nervous about submitting this book to a professional/editorial company.   Good reviews are never a guarantee when authors submit for book reviews, we have to take the good with the bad.
Imagine my relief when I saw the 5-stars!  If I could do cartwheels, I would have been doing some.
I can breathe again. LOL!

My 1st newsletter is live!

Choose Your Path Newsletter  Issue 1  is live!!

I am so excited about this. It's my first endeavor with newsletters and to be honest I don't know whether I produced it correctly, but I love what I'm sharing with you and I hope you do too!
Here's a tip for writers. I share this tip because this newsletter process brought out a lot of fears in me. As writers, we are creators. Words are our paint and our melody. And because we create with our hearts, publishing anything is often scary and nerve wracking. We want people to love our work or at least like it. 
We fear those trolls who bash writers and authors for no good reason. 
We fear because our hearts are on the line. We are not robots. When the words flow, they are a beautiful combination of love and inspiration and that's what we put out there. We hope that people will fall in love with all our work.But to soften the blow, we also tell ourselves ahead of time that not everyone will like our work. 
It's a deli…

Choose Your Path Newsletter

I'm very excited! I'm starting a Newsletter! Whoop!!

This is the first ever and I've just finished drafting the first edition. My plan is to publish the Choose Your Path Newsletter once a month -- the third Thursday of every month. Why the third Thursday? I figure this would give me enough time between each issue to find content to share.

The first issue is scheduled to go out this month on April 20, 2017 and is loaded with book recommendations. I think each issue will be a little bit different so that I can offer a variety of information to my readers. But my goal is to deliver and over deliver. I have an awesome group and I want to provide awesome content too.

I'm excited for it! I really hope my readers like it as much as I do.

If you'd like to be included, sign up to my list.

Talk soon!

Music and Writing

I did this interview a couple of years ago (I think) during a blog tour. I just now found it again and thought it would be fun to share here.
I don't know about you, but I LOVE music. I don't remember not ever having some type of music playing around me. From the time I was little and could start wiggling my bum to now when everything jiggles on its own! LOL!
I can listen to all genres of music, it really just depends on my mood and sometimes even where I'm at in life. Some music have made me cry and some have vocalized the emotions I couldn't. I wouldn't be the same person, if I didn't have music in my life.
I hope you enjoy this list :)
**Originally submitted to Book Quarry for my blog tour**
I have very eclectic taste in music.  I can listen to just about any genre of music from classical to house music! Just depends on the mood. But when I think about the series, these are the songs that come to mind. I think that when you check out these songs, there's …
