I post a little snippet of something on most Fridays. It may be an excerpt, a piece of flash, or a chapter from a serialized novel. Check back often, or follow the blog to make sure you don’t miss any of the fun!

THE ECHO

If I hadn’t dropped my yoga mat, the bus never would have hit me.

Fiction Friday: Colors

drop-macro-flowers“To your left you will see what is called a painting – an ancient form of art, utilized by humans from pre-history through the late 23rd Earth century. The artist is unknown, but it clearly depicts the first hail of the Alcorian Empire in 2384. The messenger stands with his arms held high, welcoming his kin to their new home. Many believe that this event marked the end of humanity, while Alcorian historians deem it the most important event in our people’s history…”

Fiction Friday: Ferreted Away

He kept glancing over his lump of a shoulder to ogle her. She gave him a saccharine smile every time and put an extra flutter in her lashes, which almost had him tripping over his own feet. Distracted was good.

Cloak of Deceit, Flash Friday, Free Reads

Cloak of Deceit is FREE until March 30th!

I’ve been so excited about this, talking about it on Facebook, and Twitter, and in real life… that I somehow forgot to blog about it.  If you haven’t gotten a copy yet and you’d like to sample my writing, my first book is available for FREE on Amazon for 3 more days!

I’ve posted another excerpt on Riverina Romantics, and I’m also giving away a $10 Amazon Gift Card to one lucky winner.

Yesterday was very exciting, watching my title climb the free charts.  I made it to #21 in Paranormal Romance/Psychics and #42 in Paranormal Romance/Vampires.  The numbers have gone down today, but that is still many hundreds more readers than I had before, so I’m pretty ecstatic!  To all of you who downloaded it, whoever you are… THANK YOU!

If you don’t have it yet, head on over and download a copy here. 🙂

Cloak of Deceit – Official Release!!!

Happy, happy day!!!

I knew it was going to be good. I slept in, but somehow made it to work on time. All the lights were green. It was nothing but good songs on the radio, no commercials. Then I found out my official release is now available in the Kindle store!!!

I did it!!!  My first indie-published title is now available through Amazon (exclusively, for now) at the links listed below.  I will be writing a post for next Weds on what steps I took to turn an old dusty manuscript on my word processor into a shiny new e-book for $0, as well as all the resources I used.  The entire process was pretty painless, and I have to say, I’m pretty proud of myself!

Fiction Friday (the first): Cloak of Deceit Excerpt

Welcome to Fiction Friday, where I will post excerpts of my books, current projects, or occasionally short pieces of fiction from my brain that won’t be published anywhere else.  Today, in honor of my upcoming release, I’m posting a little snippet from Cloak of Deceit, my new adult urban fantasy romance, which should be published by the time the Seahawks win their second Superbowl!!! 😉

Since I’m a one-woman-show, I spent several hours doing the formatting the past few nights and finally uploaded it to Kindle Direct Publishing last night at 10pm.  I’ll do a full post on that adventure next week.  This first book is a steep learning curve, and I want other indie authors to be able to follow in my tracks (assuming I’m successful – ha!).

For now, here’s an excerpt from Chapter Seventeen of Cloak of Deceit.  You can download the first three chapters here.  Please sign up for my newsletter if you want to be notified when the book is available for purchase on Amazon!  Happy Friday!  And GO HAWKS!!!
