Happy New Year!

This year is coming to an end...hard to believe. It has just gone by so fast. The last month has been like a blur but in a very good way! 

Wanted is now availabe in paperback on EEEPPPP!!! That makes me giddy every time I say that. Also I have uploaded a newer version of Wanted in eBook format. The only changes that have been made are grammar and spelling not really a whole lot of changes. Below is the link to order the paperback.

I hope y'all have a wonderful New Years Eve! Stay safe and have fun!

Wanted in paperback and new edition.

I hope y'all had a wonderful Christmas! I wanted to check in really quick to let y'all know I am in the process of updating Wanted. Only minor changes...grammar, spelling...things like that. I have uploaded the new edition to Amazon and they are reviewing it. I am hoping they will send an email out to those who have already purchased it to let them know a new version is available but even if they don't I will let you know when you can go to your "manage my Kindle" and upload it.

Barnes and Noble is being bratty....having a hard time getting it to upload. Once it does and is available all you have to do is delete it from your Nook and re download it for the newer edition.

Also...the book is being sent out for print in paperback! YEA!!! I will post when that is all said and done!

I hope you are enjoying your week and are able to spend time with your families.

Oh...there is also a new teaser from Saved! Check it out!

Giveaway and Wanted in paperback

Morning y'all! WOW! What an incredible month so far. I am so blessed it is beyond words. I can't believe Christmas is in two days and my 13 year old daughter waited until yesterday to pretty much really tell me what she wanted......
I spent HOURS walking around stores going crazy trying to think of something to buy this child, and she comes up with money? She just wants to go shopping for clothes. Oooookay. I can live with that! HA! 
I am still in a bit of shock with how well Wanted has been received. This story is so very special to me and I'm so lucky to get to share it with y'all. I'm in the process of doing some more edits and I hoping....fingers have it done in the next few days. I plan on uploading a newer version and y'all should get an email from Amazon letting you know if a newer version has been uploaded. If you bought the book already, they will give you instructions on how to download the newer version. There are a few minor changes, mostly just spelling and grammar fixes. I have added in a small scene which is posted on this blog and might add another scene in as well. Not to sure yet. 
Another change will be that the book will be available in paperback as well. Not sure how long that process will take but once I find out, I will let y'all know ASAP!

Also, once we hit 1,000 likes on my Facebook fan page I will be giving away a $100 gift card to either Amazon, Barnes and Noble or iTunes. We are not that far away so please, feel free to share the page with friends and family.

The next book....Saved. Jeff and Ari's story. I'm really hoping to have it out by March for y'all but it depends on three things. One...when I finish it! long it will take to send it out and get edits done on it and Three...the book cover being done by then. Sarah with Okay Creations is doing the next book cover as well. I know that poor thing is just swamped right now. Once I get the cover from her, we will go ahead and share it with y'all. I am planning though on doing a giveaway in advance of the book releasing. I'm thinking maybe a Kindle Fire for the prize. I will keep you updated as we get closer to that! 

I hope y'all have a wonderful Christmas <3 I will check in probably after Christmas.

As always, please feel free to send me an email or post on Facebook if you have any questions or just want to say hey!

Almost Christmas!

I cannot believe that Christmas is a week away! I'm not even close to being done with shopping. ARGH! I am almost done with edits for Wanted and am thinking it will be ready for paperback copies in the next few weeks! YEA!

Been writing for Saved a lot the last few days. I am up to chapter 9...just got into Josh's head...interesting! I'm thinking I will post a teaser either before Christmas or after!

I hope y'all are all doing well. Thank you again for all of your support and for recommended Wanted to your friends and family! I am so overwhelmed by the response and so very happy!

Please feel free to contact to me at any time with questions you might have!

Amazing first week!

WOW! That is really all I can even say as I come up to the first week of Wanted being out. I am overjoyed at the reaction of this book! I want to thank everyone who has sent me comments letting me know how much they loved the book and how you can not wait to hear more about Jeff and Ari! I can not wait to give you more! :-)

With this being my first book I knew it was going to be a learning experience and it certainly has been. I have already met some wonderful people and have made a ton of new friends. What a blessing indeed!

I am currently writing Saved, book two in the Wanted series. This book will be mostly Jeff and Ari's story but Gunner and Ellie will be in there for sure and you will get to know Josh and Heather better also. Oh Josh.....that boy.....I just have to shake my head at him. I am aiming for a March 2013 release for Saved. Of course never say never to an earlier release but no promises. ;-)

I am also in the process of doing more edits to Wanted. I am hoping to make some changes (edits only) to Wanted and update it in about a month or so. Edits are beyond crazy hard and no matter how many times we read through that book mistakes went unnoticed. 

Thank you again for all of your support and kind words. Please feel free to drop me line anytime with any questions you might have! My favorite question/comment so far and the one that makes me giggle them most is about Gunner. I  I have to tell you...I put a lot of my husband into Gunner's personality so when I read that his affection towards Ellie was unbelievable it just makes me nod my head in disagreement! LOL! There really are good ole Texas cowboys out there still y'all! HA! Now his humor is all in Jeff though!  ;-)

Anywho, my email address is

I will also be listing teasers every now and then on Facebook and the blog. OH! And free stuff on Facebook. Right now on my Like page once we hit 750 likes I will be drawing a name for a $75 Amazon gift card. EEEEPPP!

Thank you again for your interest in Wanted. I hope you enjoy it as much as I loved writing it!

Title for third book ;-)

Last night I was talking to Darrin about Josh and Heather's book. I know...I should be only thinking about Jeff and Ari right now......LOL! BUT.....I was thinking about them and the title of their book just popped into my head!

SOOOO...I have a title for the third and last book in the Wanted series! DRUM ROLL------->


This will be the title to Josh and Heather's book <3 I have been sitting on it all day today...making sure it felt right in my heart and does.

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and I hope your week has started off fantastic! I have been putting off so many things the last few days. Tomorrow is lunch with a dear friend of mine and then I am going to force myself to do some chores around the house! LOL! oh man....I crack myself up!

Happy Sunday!!!

WOW this weekend has been something else! To think that a few short months ago I was driving in my car listening to a song and an idea for a story just popped up in my head! I sat down and started to write and the next thing I knew.....Gunner and Ellie were brought to life. 

The experience in writing and publishing my first book as been something else. I have learned a lot in the last few days...some good...some bad....but I can honestly say 99% of it has been GREAT!

I am currently working on the second book in the Wanted series. This will be Jeff and Ari's book and the title will be Saved. I am hoping to have it out in Feb. 2013 promises! HA!

I wanted to take just a moment to thank each person who has taken the time to write a review, post a comment on my Facebook page, emailed me and most importantly....shared Wanted with your friends and family. A recommendation to read the book is by far the best compliment you could ever give me! In it is the season for giving! ;-)

Again....thank you so much!

Blessings and hugs,

Wanted contains strong language and Adult content

I wanted to take a moment to say a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who has read Wanted already! The feedback has been amazing and I am blown away....especially since this is my first book!

I am getting a lot of questions regarding a second book. YES! I have already started on the second book......Saved. This will be Ari and Jeff's story and we will get to know Josh and Heather a bit better as well!

As of this morning I was #3 on the Kindles Mover and Shaker list. I almost fell out of my chair considering I am with some wonderful company on that list! Thank you to everyone who is buying and sharing with other folks. That is the greatest complement of all!
