I'll be a Mommy Soon Enough!


Hello Everyone!

I have some updates on my current pregnancy situation. So as you know from my recent post, they have had me on light bed rest for the past week. Well, they are also planning on inducing me at 39 weeks. Well guess what? 39 weeks is this Saturday and they have scheduled my induction for Sunday! So Sometime early next week I will be able to add Mommy to my list of occupations.

I'm not even sure how to feel at this point. I feel like I've been pregnant forever that I don't think it has even hit me yet. It will probably hit me like a ton of bricks once we are on our way there. Who knows.

How has this last week of pregnancy felt? Tiring. Half the time I want to nap, but when I'm not napping--no matter how tired I am-- I have the strongest urge to nest. Seriously, the nesting bug is real and there is no getting rid of it once it hits you.

That does mean that I have a clean house, finally! At least as clean as I am comfortable with. We still have some work to do in the studio room and some boxes laying around while we wait for recycling week to come.

BUT, we did finally finish something that was loooong over due.

Ta Da!


After weeks and weeks of struggling, we... I mean Patrick, has finally finished the nursery. I could not be more pleased with this cuteness! 

So from now until next week, all we can do is wait. Maybe Baby Elliott will make his appearance before this weekend; I could only hope. If not, by this time next week, I'll have a baby in my arms!

Baby Elliott Due Any Day!



I have been terrible at updating this blog that is for sure! If you follow me on any of my social media, then you already know that Patrick and I will be welcoming our first son, Elliott, here in just a short amount of weeks!

I have been extremely blessed that my pregnancy progressed well, with the small exception that Elliott tried to make his appearance a little too early last week and now I have been put on maternity leave and light bedrest while I wait for him to come.

I wanted to apologize because I have made so many promises of a book release and it hasn't happened yet. Mainly because if you look at my work schedule, you will wonder how I have even managed to make it this far. Seriously, I've been working avg 42 hours all year. On the week of 4th of July, I worked 38 hours just in 4 days. On top of that, it takes nearly an hour to travel to work and back because of traffic. By the time dinner is done, I eat, and do some light cleaning, I just want to relax on the couch with my loving husband. Of course now I am on bed rest, so I don't have a good excuse. So know that a release is coming, but I'm not making any promises on a date until the book is out of it's first edits.

I know that parenthood is upon me and it will be even harder to squeeze in the necessary time to write; however I want you all to know that writing is a huge part of my life and I will fight more than anything to get that time to continue to work on my WIPs. I would love more than anything for writing to be my income. Not only would it help me spend more hours daily on a a novel, but I would get to spend time with my son. Who doesn't want to be able to stay home and snuggle with their little baby?

I will keep everyone updated on Elliott's impending arrival. I'm super stoked to become a mother. It is a huge life change, but one I have wanted for the longest time. Please keep us in your thoughts and thank you all who have been patiently waiting on me.

Cover Reveal: Beautifully Disguised




Twins separated most of their lives sounds like a Disney movie—Annika grew up that way. Her entire life changes when she decides to enroll in her twin brother’s academy for nine tailed fox spirits called Kumihos. However, she has none of the magical abilities she claims. Forced to disguise herself, Annika lives in constant fear that someone will see through her deception.

Liam’s entire life depends on a lie. To maintain his family‘s social standing, he must convince everyone he is full-blooded Kumiho. When his twin sister shows up at school, everything balances on the edge of a knife. Telling everyone she is an old family friend, he tries to help her navigate this new life pretending to be something she isn’t. Being discovered would expose the family secret and force them both to face their father’s wrath.

When a shaman tells Marick the deceit of a new girl in his life could jeopardize his future, he instantly suspects the clumsy new girl. Something about her isn’t right, though he can’t quite figure out what. He will stop at nothing to get rid of her before she ruins everything.

But when an ancient evil threatens to destroy everything, secrets and lies are the least of their problems.




Shelve it to your Goodreads now!

Cover Reveal September 12

Whats all this hoopla about a cover reveal? Well, if you must know... it's happening!


If you have been following me and have read my previous work, then you would know that I haven't published anything in about 2 years. That used to be nothing in writing years back in the olden days; however, with the rise of e-books and the constant consumer demand, you basically have to be a writing machine to keep the readers fueled and visiting.

Yeah, I'm sucking that up--BIG time. Still, I have not been short of ideas. Just short on time. With that being said, I am ready to move on to the next step of the promotion of my newest series. Beautifully Disguised.

So you have heard very little about it, eh? Well, that's because I have been sitting on this little secret for about a year now and up until recently I have been giving small hints about it. Thus far, we have Kumihos. Yes, there will be a blurb, but to keep the interest I want to save the blurb for the cover reveal. 

Any how, just know that while I may be a snail, I am still actively writing and planning on giving you my dear readers something soon. Time is short, but my will is strong.

Beautifully Disguised

Hello readers!

If you are reading this, then you have been faithfully waiting on me. I do apologize that you have had to do so!

So what are my announcements today? Well, first off, I have been writing ferociously so that I can finally give you what you have all been waiting for! The last book in the Gemini series. I'm not giving any release dates yet, but I might still be on track for the end of next year. In the meantime, I know you all have been hearing the whispers about my newest project. In case you didn't see it on my FB post, it has a name!

Beautifully Disguised.

It is a ten book serial based on an old Korean legend, Kumihos. More information will follow, but know that I already have a kick butt cover artist working on all 10 books and I will have a cover reveal for the first book very soon! September 12. Mark that on your calendars.

I can't wait to share it with you guys and I hope you love this world just as much as you love Carsona's world in the Gemini series.

NANOWRIMO

Hello everyone!

I know I haven't posted much on my blog lately. If you've been following me on FB then you probably have the latest info.

So just a recap.

New series out early 2016. Cover reveal soon.
Gemini a Legacy out late 2016. Cover reveal next year.

Okay, so that sums everything up. Alright, so what am I on here for then?

Well, I wanted to let everyone know that I plan on participating in NANO this year for the very FIRST time. OMG, I'm actually nervous. I never participated before because I was super busy and/or already involved in a writing project. Plus, I was terrified of trying to get that many words in a month. I mean come on, it usually takes me 3-4 months to write my Gemini books and they actually don't even reach 50k. But I'm determined. Why? Mainly because I need a boost to actually get started on the last book of the Gemini series. It's not that I'm not inspired, but that I just don't have will power; I just graduated, moved states, and then started a new career--all in the course of several months. That is a lot of overload for me and it's really hurting my writing.

Now to be completely honest, I also have been having a writing affair. I have started a few offside projects to keep my writing skills up while I'm not working on my published novels. Such as a fanfic and also a few Sim stories.  So know that I'm not rusty, just focusing my energy on other things.

So that's it! I just thought I would dust the shelves on this blog and update you with this post! Until next time--Happy Reading! or in my case Happy Writing!
