Goodbye Blogger, Hello New Website!

After several years, I finally decided to upgrade my official website! That means I will no longer be using blogger to host my website. I will continue to keep this blog open so that readers can still read the archives for past posts.

My website address will remain the same (, but it will direct you to the new site (which will contain a new blog format)! I spent a whopping 8 hours on it Sunday, so I hope y'all will check it out!

Where in the world is…???

I am still here! Yes, I know… I've been way to silent. It's been three months, so what in the world have I been doing/hiding/writing??

Well, in November, the family and I ventured over to the beautiful Bahamas (Abaco) for my brother-in-laws wedding. It was an awesome week in which I got absolutely no writing done (can you blame me)?

Check out the view from our beach house! 

Then in December, we braved the weather (although we're still dealing with snow, snow, snow…). I spent most of this month re-editing the Travelers Series for second edition ebooks, so writing was put on the back burner for awhile. 

Just one of the many snow storms to hit Northern Virginia this winter. 

Which brings us to January when I did a promo with Bookbub (if you haven't signed up for this service, do it now! Lot's of free and discounted ebooks!!) which introduced my books to so many fabulous new readers and put me at #1 on Amazon's Young Adult/Time Travel best seller list (for awhile)! 

It's always nice to see your book in the Numbero Uno spot. 

I know. None of these things is what you want to hear. Have I actually been writing? 

Yes! I am almost half way done with PARAMETER (book 4 in the Travelers Series) and have just started DARKLY RELATIONS (book 2 in the Darkly Series). So while I have been absent here on my blog it doesn't mean I've forgotten about y'all! 

While it's not a true resolution for the new year, I HOPE to stay more social and give y'all more updates as I work on both books. Sometimes things (like life) gets in the way and I forget to do some of the more important things, like stay in touch. 

Keep checking in and hopefully I'll have more to share in the coming weeks/months!

It's Coffin Hop time!!

I have been waiting so long for Coffin Hop 2013 that I almost forgot to do a post about it! Coffin Hop is an annual horror web tour event hosted by indie horror writers, including yours truly. There's books, prizes, and all sorts of crazy going around from October 24-31st!

There's still five days left of this spooktacular fanfare! All you have to do is stop by the Official Coffin Hop site and check out all of the horrorific indie authors for a chance to win some great swag!

For those who decide they just can't live without a signed print copy of my newest book, Darkly Beings (New Adult/Paranormal) along with some bookmarks and perhaps a surprise or two. Just leave a comment in the section below (with your email so I can contact the winner) and a name will be chosen at random (contest limited to US only)!

And because I love Halloween and the days leading up to it (yeah, I'm birthday was yesterday), the winner will also receive a free ebook copy of Coffin Hop: Death by Drive-In! My short story, Kiki and The Lone Stranger, is a companion story to DARKLY BEINGS, so this anthology is a must have for your collection. Even if you don't win, you might want to get one of your very own...not only does it contain some of the best horror shorts, but all proceeds go to charity!

Good luck and remember... Trick Or Treat!!

This post has been a long time in the making. It's one that I had hoped I could avoid, but due to creative circumstances beyond my control, I guess it's time to address a few things regarding the Travelers Series.

First things first, there WILL be a fourth book (PARAMETER). I don't want to start this post with y'all thinking I'm going to announce the end of the series. But there is bad news: I don't know when it will be out. I can't believe it's been a year this week since I released PARADIGM! And I'm sorry it has taken this long for me to address the continuation of the series.

I've been going through a MAJOR block regarding book four (as the series will continue in the dystopian society that Thornberry has created). It will be much different than the first three books and I want to give it the justice it deserves. I don't want to write something just to release it. It's not fair to you, my awesome readers, (or Etta). I have a few things written down and I am constantly racking my brian for the right story...I'll get there, I promise.

Thank you all who have emailed me, FB messaged me, and posted about it's release. It means so much to me that you want to continue reading the series!

In the meantime, my writer's block (for book four) has lead me to write DARKLY BEINGS, a new-adult paranormal, as well as the new book I am currently working on that will be a mystery (I am finally using my background in law enforcement to good use), but don't let that dismay you! As soon as those voices (Etta, Cooper, Jenny, Moose...) come back, you can bet I will be writing it all down!

Once again, I can't thank y'all enough for your support!
