Fabulous Friday: Things I Love

As I mentioned on Monday, I would be starting a "things I love" feature on the blog. I am deep in the throes of rediscovering myself. I know that may sound a little strange, but the truth is, I lost a deep part of myself when my mom passed away in 2010. Since then I haven't felt grounded or secure, haven't really felt like I knew who I was. Her death just shook my very foundation.

Healing from the loss has been a journey in-and-of itself. I have tried out different lifestyle changes (looks, home decor, hairstyles), made some changes in career and friends, etc. In short, I have been on a journey of rediscovering who I am - the things I like to do, the things I am passionate about, etc.

And I wanted to share some of those discoveries with you! Taking a page from my own advice offered to young girls in The Girl Guide, I am doing something I haven't done since my early twenties - I am make a scrapbook of the things I love, a digital collage of sorts. And I am using Pinterest to do it.

I will be revamping my Pinterest boards and sharing recipes, fashion, quotes, home furnishings, gardens, travel, etc - all as I explore these different things for myself.

To start, I wanted to share my all-time fav place to find home furnishings at great price....Home Goods. As most of you know, I am going through a little DIY remodel (just paint, furnishings, etc) and Home Goods has proven to be my new "best friend", offering a vast array of novelties to put in the house. Here are a few of the great finds...

(Not the books, obviously)

The turtles, tiger shells, and vases all came from Home Goods, and I LOVE them so much. They make my desk, MY desk.

Check out my boards, share things you love, and come back next Friday - you never know what great find I may share! And if you LOVE Home Goods the way I do, check out their Pinterest boards for TONS of inspirational pics

It's Release Day!

Wow! This post was a long time coming. My 6th novel (and 17th book), OUTBREAK, book #2 in the Solomon Experiments, is officially out day.

This is a special release for me. I had struggled to find my fiction mojo after my last book. Related to what was going on in my personal life and some residual feelings about my mother's death, it took me nearly 2 years to reconnect with my inner artist. The struggle was worth it, though, as I figured out some things about myself as an artist that I needed.

Now, I hope all of you will enjoy the book as much as I've enjoyed writing it.

OUTBREAK is the continuing story of Dakota, an 18 year old girl wrestling with her new awareness of abilities that make her the target of a black ops group. Here is a little more about the story:

Dakota never thought she’d crave her old life in Boresville. Not until the Creator’s assassins came and took everything, everyone, she cared about—all except for David. He’s the only thing she has left, and he wants he…

Collide and Transcend in Audio Format

Wow - it has too long since my last post! A lot has happened over the past few months. First, I've decided to re-launch my entire backlist. What does this mean? New covers, new interiors, and, in some cases, new and expanded stories. It also means releasing the books in audiobook format. Audiobooks are something I've wanted to do for a while. And now it is finally happening.

In December, I released the audiobook formats of Transcend and Collide - each with new covers and new interiors in the digital and print versions. I plan on revealing the new covers for the rest of the Solomon Experiment series (the sequels to Collide) later this month, with the actual books coming in late Feb and March/April.

In Spring, I will begin the re-launch of the Requiem series, including significantly expanded stories for books 2 and 3, new covers, new titles and audiobook formats.

I don't plan on only re-releasing books in 2016. In addition to the two new books in the Solomon Experiments, I ha…
