Blitz Day! Knocking Down Heaven’s Door

•February 19, 2013 • Leave a Comment

Knocking Down Heavens Door Tour



I’m really proud to be blitzing my YA title Knocking Down Heaven’s Door today! I feel like this is a quirky, different type of YA title that harkens back to the coming of age stories I grew up with in my teens. Plus, I believe in delivering smart fiction for all ages, so I like that I really didn’t pull any punches in this title. There’s talk about spirituality, about becoming aware of one’s place in the world, about feeling inept with the opposite’s all there, and I think it explores some interesting territory in an age-appropriate way for older teens on up.

So you can see the blurb, excerpt, and more about this title at the following sites today:




Blitz Day/Mini Blog Tour: The Inheritance

•January 29, 2013 • Leave a Comment

I know, I’ve been so bad about getting back on a schedule. If it hasn’t been one thing, it’s been another. That being said, though, I wanted to make sure everyone knows that today is a very special day. Today, No Boundaries Press is blitzing my first title, The Inheritance!


I really love this title. Anything that explores warped family relationships, secrets, and throws in a creepy doll has to have a special place in my heart, right? Seriously, this was one of those titles where the idea came first, and then the actual writing and developing took a while to get it where I wanted it to be. I’m really, really thrilled that people seem to like it, and I’m happy that more are about to learn all about it!

So follow along to learn more about this short story filled with psychological horror!

And for those who aren’t familiar with the title, read on!

Kaylee has one night to re-connect with her ailing father, but they don’t have much to talk about. Inspired, she decides to read him a story that eerily mirrors their relationship. She wants to bury the hatchet so badly, but all she can remember are the pranks Zachary pulled and in an attempt to make parenthood interesting. But long ago Kaylee learned his Achilles heel, the one silly object that could undo him and change the balance in their relationship. Should she use it? Will she? Find out what happens when love and forgiveness become twisted by anger, retaliation, and disconnect.

Howloween Blog Hop – Long Live Halloween!

•October 26, 2012 • 2 Comments

For those who are looking for the Wicked After Dark hop – it’s one post back and is still going on until Nov 1!



I love Halloween. The spooky stories, the costumes, the candy, the decorations, the sense that anything can happen…I LOVE it!

I have a lot of great memories growing up and really soaking up the small-town atmosphere and going for broke decorating the house. We all got involved, and on those nighttime trick or treating expeditions (remember trick or treating at night?) you just knew that you maybe, just maybe might turn the corner and see a ghost.

It’s probably one of the reasons I love the horror genre – I like that sense of being on the edge of my seat. Granted, I like to be alive at the end of my adventures, but in books and movies I really love that sense of not knowing if things are safe or not.

I like the cute part of Halloween, too – bring on the grinning jack-0-lanterns, the friendly ghosts, the cute witches, and the smiling black cats! I will gladly clutter up my residence with them and not mind one bit! Maybe there’s a little bit of Wednesday Addams in me, but for me this holiday is full of so much great stuff that I can barely stand it! I love curling up with Halloween specials, love watching spooky movies, love reading books about true ghost stories. I am all for Halloween!

So, with that in mind…the giveaway.

Leave a comment with your email and tell me why you love Halloween! What’s your favorite part? What’s your favorite Halloween memory?

The winner will get a PDF copy of my spooky psychological horror story, The Inheritance!

Wicked After Dark Halloween Giveaway

•October 23, 2012 • 7 Comments

It’s time to get wicked! What is it about Halloween that brings out the sexy side of people? Is it an extension of the holiday – being able to be something we may not admit to wanting during other times of the year? Is it that we’re all grown up and candy corn isn’t going to cut it anymore? If the huge flood of sexy vampires, sexy witches, sexy pirates, and sexy everything else isn’t a clue….well, the dark side can be sexy. If back in the day people saw Halloween as a way to get comfortable with death or the shadow side of themselves, then these days people also use the holiday to get comfortable with their sensual sides.

So, in encouragement of the wicked side of the holiday, here’s my contest: Leave me a comment telling me what wicked thing you like about Halloween – it could be your favorite paranormal romance, a vampire you get hot under the collar for, a daring costume you want to try, etc. Leave your email and one lucky winner will receive the PDF ebook of my speculative erotic quickie, Power Chord!

Drake has gotten used to having things his way – he makes the decisions whether it be recording his music, on the road while touring, or in bed. He may be somewhat older than when he first started, but he can still pack venues and still has fans at his mercy. But while professional success brings about one type of satisfaction, there’s a certain type he just can’t seem to reach one dull night after a show. He doesn’t party hard anymore – he knows better – but that doesn’t mean he can’t indulge in a dirty fantasy all his own. What would it be like to have ultimate power, to be able to shed the confines of his body and sneak up on the unsuspecting by way of astral travel? What would it be like to seduce a woman when she can’t see him, can only feel him when he wants her to? And what happens when he’s not the only one who appreciates good music and is turned on by the power of control?

Wicked enough for you? 😉
