Someday I'll be your favorite author

I’ll be changing up my free download for joining my newsletter shortly. You’ll still be able to purchase Stalking Hazel on Amazon if you didn’t get the free download, but I’ll be running a different incentive. So if you want to be in the Pine Haven series section of my subscribers…hurry up! The next free download will be a dark fantasy novella based on one of Grimm’s Fairy Tales. It will be ready as soon as I get the cover from the cover artist. Which will be any day now.

For those of you waiting for more Pine HavenFinding Fiona will be going up for pre order by the end of the month!

What happens when a witch has no idea she’s a witch? Mayhem, that’s what. When PBI investigators Kyle Gibson, Cian O’Malley, and Larry De Groot travel to a small Midwestern town to neutralize a rogue paranormal, they don’t expect to find an untutored witch with no idea what she is.

Fiona MacDougal has never felt like she belonged to her oh-so-perfect family. Even her boyfriend is flawless, while she’s a klutzy, curly-haired, mess who always seems to have the strangest accidents. But when she meets the members of the PBI and learns she’s a witch, she’ll finally realize she doesn’t have to be perfect to fit in or find love. She only has to accept herself.

I can’t wait for you to meet my lovable, but rebellious and accident prone heroine. Along with a cast of characters I hope you’ll love as much as I do.

The series will continue with Kissing Cian. Cian O’Malley is a century and half year old blue faerie who thinks she doesn’t need love, especially from a fickle werewolf. But when Hazel is kidnapped on the eve of her wedding, Cian will have to team up with Leo’s brother, who happens to be her on again/ off again partner, Larry. Can they save Hazel in time for her wedding? Can Larry show Cian vulnerability doesn’t make you weak–love gives you strength?

I’m having so much fun writing this series! I think it’s kind of a cross between Paranormal Romance and Urban Fantasy. I’ll also be debuting another trilogy in January. Book One of the Touched by Fate trilogy, Kiss of the Banshee, will be released. Stay tuned for more writing news, book cover reveals, and all sorts of other fun things.

I’m taking part in my first Story Origin giveaway. Want tons of free books? Just click the link above and you’ll be directed to the page to pick and choose which free books you’d like to download. Lots of genres, lengths, and authors to choose from. I know I filled my kindle up. But we all know it’s “collecting” when it comes to books–not “hoarding.

If you have any trouble, feel free to contact me or the nice folks at Story Origin (shout out to Evan). We’ll all be happy to help.

So enjoy some free books and let me know what you think!

Yep, I have my first new release in, hmm, four years? It’s been a long dry spell, that’s for sure. And yes, I did genre hop. Thanks for noticing. This story was originally written for an anthology that never quite happened. So I set it aside for a long time. But I couldn’t get the characters, or the fun I’d had creating them, out of my head. Then I got the idea for a series, and this seemed the perfect story for an introduction to the series. It’s been reworked, beta read, reworked, edited, and re edited (because I’m picky like that), and got a shiny cover (which I’m really happy with!). Thank you to Broken Candle Designs for the cover.

The story is a light-hearted, comedic, paranormal romance. And I hope that readers enjoy reading Hazel and Leo’s story as much as I enjoyed writing it. How do you get it? Two ways…you can download the story for free in kindle, epub, or pdf version simply by joining my newsletter. Navigate to the “Home” page of this website and you should get a cute pop up. If not, there’s a clearly marked link. I promise to only send super cute, non spammy newsletters. Or, if you prefer, you can buy it on Amazon for 99 cents. Your choice. But either way, if you read it, let me know what you think.

Writing is not easy. Don’t let anyone tell you it is. I know, it seems like a glamorous profession. And there are those authors who make it look easy (Stephen King, I’m looking at you). But it’s actually work, just like any job. That’s the thing about choosing to turn your hobby into your profession–it’s no longer just about enjoying yourself. Now it’s about deadlines, and marketing, and money. Boo.

It’s mostly about me in my comfy clothes (tbh, some days that does mean pajamas), drinking coffee (or water, depending on the time of day), and doing a variety of tasks. I might be writing, or I might have fallen down a rabbit hole of research (this happens frequently), or I might be having a video meeting with my accountability partner (hi, Beth!), or I might be studying (yes, there is ALWAYS more to learn), or I might be banging my head on the desk because I absolutely cannot figure out Mailchimp. Or Google analytics, or the intricacies of Amazon algorithms. Then again, I might be giving my brain a break by doing dishes (usually while watching a podcast because multitasking like a boss!), watching a documentary on 17th century England (even though it has nothing to do with what I write), figuring out a plot hole or scene beat, or I’ve just lost track of time while in Facebook land.

I wish it was easy. I wish I could churn out a book a month, make my own covers, and handle my marketing like a pro. But I’m simply not made that way. So bear with me. I’ll keep putting my butt in my chair and plugging away. Send chocolates. And wine.
