Caching In

#ChickLitMay A to Z Scavenger Hunt

  SASSY is my favorite way to describe chick lit as a genre. People often ask what I write and like to read. When I respond with chick lit, I sometimes get weird looks, or people questioning what the genre even is. I won’t go into an entire post about why chick lit is an awesome genre and people need to stop judging everyone’s choices, but what I WILL tell you is why I love…

Why I’m Making the Amazon Exclusive Jump

On May 9, 2014, I published my first book, Pieces of it All on Amazon. I immediately enrolled it into KDP Select. Then a few people (and literally a few – 2) asked if they could get my book elsewhere. After my 90 day period, I took it out of KDP Select and started selling it on Barnes &Noble, iBooks, and Kobo. When I released every book after, The Right Equation, Early Bird Special, Caching…

Come Check Out Page 45 – And Enter the Giveaway #ChickLitMay

We continue the week-long celebration of Chick lit with “What’s on Page 45?” Picking a great line from page 45 is difficult. Do I pick from the paperback? The Kindle version? The Barnes & Noble or iBooks version? Depending on the reading device, the fonts alter what page things are on. Since I work on a Mac, I opened iBooks, changed the font to the size I like and hopped on over to page 45….

Reflections After a Year of Publishing

Today is a special day for me. On May 9, 2014 I announced the release of my first book PIECES OF IT ALL. This book took almost two years to complete to the book it is today, and I anxiously awaited release day, hoping for the best possible release. Things went off without a hitch. I checked sales hourly, okay, let’s be honest, every ten minutes. I didn’t have the release day I wanted, but, it…

J is for Jay Walking!

Nope, that’s not a typo! Jay Walking is the name of my next book, releasing Summer 2015. I don’t have a firm release date yet, but will let you know as soon as I do. A little about the book: Chelsea Wyatt, a single-mom trying to build a life for her and her son, is sick of the body she sees in the mirror. A daily diet of Cookie Crisp cereal is not doing wonders…

G is for Geocaching!

#ATOZChallenge @tkrimms Years ago, I heard about this past time called geocaching. I was very unfamiliar with it, and wasn’t sure if I would enjoy it. I told a friend about it, and she and her husband really got into it. I thought about it often, and really wanted to try it. Finally, I downloaded the Geocaching app on my iPhone and started my hunt for treasures. I’ll admit – I am not very good at…
