Goodbye 2014! Hello 2015!


Okay, I admit that I'm not the chatty author.  I don't talk about my writing, my book, sales, how to promote myself or even about my publisher.  Being a review site owner has taken too much of my writing time and effort over the last two years.  Yes, my book, The Couple is two years old.  I didn't…

2014 in review for the blog!

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here's an excerpt:

Thoughts on Twitter

Information on one of my WIPs

This is going to be a powder keg post.  Most authors LOVE Twitter but I don't.  I find it cliquish, confusing and way too fast for me to keep up with.  I only use it for blogging.  I know that there are certain publishers that only use Twitter to communicate with their readers and I cry foul on th…

Wondering Thoughts on Facebook w/e October 3, 2014

Excited Student With A Composition Book

So I know that I'm not the best author blogger.  I do have a life and review site to keep up with but I'm going to try this out every Sunday.  My thoughts on what I've read or seen on Facebook.  I'm not much of a Twitter person.  In fact I'm impaired in that area so I'll talk about what I've seen …

I'm so boring right now.  Between baseball games/practice, getting my 3rd grader to not have an anxiety attack over a state mandated test and life in general...yes, I'm bor…

Happy Birthday to Me! Woot!

happy birthday cake

Yikes, I'm 47 years old today.  Shocker to most people.  When I tell people how old am I, they assume I'm much younger.  I haven't been married  10 years yet and our son is 8-year-old 3rd grader.  What can I say?  I married and had my son late in my 30's.  I waited or I should say, my husband wait…

Happy New Year!

happy new year HW


I picked this graphic because this is my motto for 2015.  I've been so down this past year and have had so much negative in my life that dammit, I will believe in myself and achieve my goals.

Happy Christmas and Merry New Year!

Branding Myself...finally!

oklahoma_soonersAs most people know or don't know about me, I was born in the great state of Oklahoma.  Boomer Sooner baby!  I know, people actually think that I'm from Texas but I'm not.  I bleed Sooner Red, not Teasipping burnt orange.  It was drilled in my head from the cradle that the Texas Longhorns are the de…

Basically, I'm now #251 out of #512 in the Listopia of Best New Author Books.  Okay, didn't know this existed and Holy Cow!!!  The reviews have been very …

Updates and sorry for the MIA

I'm sorry that I've been MIA lately.  Its been a difficult year so far for me on the writing front.  My debut (in my mind) bombed.  Yes, I've written about promoting my debut, the troubles that I have had with getting reviews, being taken seriously...blah, blah, blah.  Well guess what?  There has be…

I think she read my post from last week.  Eek...


I'm embarrassed now but what she has to say makes sense.  Just don't want to come off as a Promo Wo in social media.  :)

I have ARC copies!

Coach Taylor!

Coach Taylor would like to make an announcement, so pay close attention.

Harlie has ARC copies of her debut short out now.  Of course, I don't have a clue what that is but Tammy and the other teachers are VERY excited.  Seems they can't wait to read it.  *shakes head*  I don't think I will ever f…

Writing the Query Letter------UGH!

This is me at the moment. Ugh! Okay, I'm not blond but I do have green eyes.  :)  Trying to write a query letter. Okay, okay...why a query letter? Well, I have two stories that the synopsis done and one story has the first three chapters done. I'm looking to query submissions on both of them to two…

What am I doing wrong here?



Coach Taylor really needs to give me a good motivational speech.  Over the last couple of weeks, I've been kicked, pointed at, laughed at and generally ignored in the romance community as a writer.  I really don't think people realize that I do have a book coming out next month.  I'm in auth…
