Bloggers, Bloggers, wherefore art thou Bloggers?

Who We Were, my new YA Contemporary Romance is due out September 15th! My publisher, Anchor Group, is unveiling the cover August 15th. Why am I looking for bloggers? Because I'm hosting a blog tour that includes sharing the cover and sharing the book upon release, that's why? I mean where would I be without the love of my bloggers? No where, that's where. I need them!!! 

Who We Were is a fast paced story of love, redemption and reinventing yourself. Read more about the story...

“Who we were had washed away with the summer. Who we are was yet to be seen.”
Summer school at Alcott High was only supposed to gain Sadie Peters extra credit, nothing more. Her goal wasn't to make friends, or gain the attention of the most popular football player, yet she managed both. Her life was cruising along on course ... until that summer.
Could a simple stint in a different school change her identity completely and introduce her to love for the first time? How would that affect her relationship with Lily, her best friend?
Hopefully their friendship was strong enough to make it through the tumultuous summer. Sadie learns that great things come with change, but sometimes memories of the past are hardest to part with.

Book Blast for Warrior


Official Release Date: 7/13/14
This is the third book in the Order of the Spirit Realm Series.  If you haven't read them, start with BAIT.  It is free at most online ebook vendors such as Amazon, B&N, Kobo, Smashwords, etc.

This book begins two years after HUNTER ended.  Bay-Lee is fighting a Devil Tree while her mentor and boyfriend, Nick Gallos, watches from the sidelines.  Things are tense between them.  She wants to amp up their relationship, but Nick has put on the brakes.  He's got one foot out the door, and she doesn't know what to do about it.

WARRIOR brings about closure and change, some good and some bad.  Together, Nick and Bay-Lee will take on the werewolf pack that killed her mother, face their twisted pasts, and face a friend turned enemy.

Quotes from WARRIOR:

Bay-Lee: You never told me I wasn't supposed to kill it.  You told me I couldn't kill it.
Nick: I should have known you'd take that as a challenge.

Keisha: Oh, don't play Miss Innocent with me, girl.  It was your idea for me to trade places with Nick's banshee, but you've been wearing a pouty face ever since.
Bay-Lee: I don't have a pouty face.
Keisha:  Sure you don't.

Bay-Lee (after knocking Keisha down):  You hit on my boyfriend, so I thought I should hit on you.

Little girl:  There's a monster in my closet.

He added, "Reapers aren't supposed to care.They don't have compassion or love inside of them."
"But you're still human."
"Because of you!"  It sounded like an accusation instead of gratitude.  "I haven't lost my humanity because I still have you.  His facial muscles tightened.  "I can't keep living like this."
Nick threw the talisman down and stormed off, heading for the castle.
She scooped the talisman off the ground.  It was precious, even if it was malfunctioning.  Without it Nick wouldn't be able to stay with her.  She ran until she caught up with him.  Slipping it into his hand, she begged him to keep using it.  "At least until we find something else.  Please."
The purple half-circles beneath his eyes attested to his lack of sleep and made her want to cry.  She cringed when he slipped the thing around his neck.  Asking him to live like this was horrible, but she couldn't let him go, not yet.

Fun Fridays-Fireworks

This 4th of July I've been given the task to give a small snippet from my book that is due out September 15th that includes 'fireworks'. It just so happens that I have dedicated a scene including fireworks. So sit back and enjoy the small, but special scene.

We made the trek through the woods on a pathway that was no doubt built just for the family. The dock sat right along the water. The lake was still, showing the moon in its reflection like a picture. Nolan threw a blanket out and we both sat. With the other blanket he wrapped it around the both of us together. I held one side, he the other.
A loud crack sounded and the burst of fireworks shot up in the sky. It was the most perfect show I had ever seen.
“This is … just beautiful. Thank you for having me here tonight.” I leaned my head on his shoulder.
“It’s only beautiful because you’re here. Normally I sit here alone.”
I closed my eyes picturing a lonely Nolan. “You’ll never be alone again.”
“Promise?” He held his pinky in the air.
“Forever promise.” I looped my pinky around his.
