Update

Blood Cure has been out for roughly five months, and already I am over halfway to my break even point (the number of books I need to sell to pay for what I spent on an editor and the book cover), and I can’t even tell you how ecstatic that makes me!!

Blood for Blood, book 2 in Keira’s story, is well on its way, and I have put myself on my editor’s schedule for mid-October, which means it’s crunch time in my writing world right now, so if you don’t hear from me for long stretches of time, that’s why. Also, the first book in my Death Maiden series, which I have not named yet, is waiting patiently for me to pick it up again once Blood for Blood is off to the editor.

I have been reading whenever possible, and have found two new series by authors who are new to me: the first book is The Change by Teyla Branton (which I really enjoyed), and the second is Grim by Thea Atkinson (which I mostly enjoyed). I plan on reading the next book in both series, and I hope Thea Atkinson can reel me in a little more. I picked up the last book in Chloe Neill’s Chicagoland Vampire series, but am reading each book slowly (I’m about halfway through the series) because I really don’t want it to come to an end. It has been one of my all-time favorite series.

That’s it for now. I’ll keep writing, and will offer updates whenever I have them.

Where have I been?

I realized yesterday that it’s been a while since I last wrote something, and for that I apologize.  It’s been really busy. My editor told me she’s so busy she is booking into August (which is really awesome!), so I had her pencil me in for mid-October so I wouldn’t miss her editing services by the end of the year since I plan to have Blood for Blood out early next year. This means I have six months to complete and turn in my rough draft (yikes!). Plus, I’m still marketing Blood Cure, which makes it a very busy time around here…oh, and did I mention I have a full-time job?

Anyway, I’m loving my new writing program, though I’m still figuring it out, and Blood for Blood is coming along very well. I plan on buckling down for the next six months so I’ll be ready for edits, so I may not be on here as often as I’d like, but I’ll blog as often as I can. Thanks for hanging with me, and I hope you enjoy the ride!

What I’m doing

vintage truckAs those of you who have read Blood Cure already know, Keira makes her living by taking care of classic cars and trucks at her shop, KNB Classics. Something I’ve been considering doing for some time now is to bring this to life once a month on my blog where I feature a classic car or truck to talk about and encourage comments and feedback from you guys. My husband and I love classic vehicles, which is where the idea to make Keira a classic car mechanic came from. Feel free to leave a comment to let me know if this is something you think you’d like to see.

I am also thinking of creating a newsletter, where people who sign up get to read a short story about the night Keira was born, and how she got Rya as her tattoo. It would also be used for exclusive short stories in the future. Another thing in the works, are Blood Cure book bags. I haven’t found the right company to create them yet, but I am working on it, and may have some to offer in the future.

And as always, I’m working on the next Keira book, Blood for Blood. With the overwhelming request of my fans, I have shifted gears so that Blood for Blood has moved to the top of my finish pile instead of my first Death Maiden novel, which I am still working on, but it will take a backseat to Blood for Blood for now.

Lots of exciting things going on around here. Don’t forget I have a book signing at the end of this month on the 29th at Boarding House Books in Claremore from 6-9pm if you’d like to attend.

What’s happening.

Spring is here!

I love this time of year. The flower beds are done, new flowers planted, and the hummingbirds will be happy to find nectar waiting for them when they arrive. I plan on getting a sliding rocker to place on the front porch so I can enjoy the sunshine.

As for my writing, I am learning a new writing software with the hopes it will help me organize all my notes in one place, instead of having them and my research scattered all around. Blood for Blood, Keira’s second book is just warming up, and my first Death Maiden novel is moving along quite nicely.

Upcoming events: I have a book signing coming up this month on the 29th at Boarding House Books on Main Street during a Taste of Claremore from 6-9pm. I have some door prizes planned, so if you haven’t made it to any of my other signings, this would be a good one to come to as there will be a lot of activities going on out in the street, as well as a lot of fun in the bookstore. I hope to see you there!
