Seducing Cinderella Tribute Trailer

This is a trailer my friend, Kim Anguiano, made for me. She kept it a secret and then posted it to my FB page. She’s so incredibly talented. I’m definitely hiring her to do the official book trailer for the paperback release! Note the super delicious pics of Parker Hurley who was the inspiration for the hero, Reid Andrews. Enjoy!

THE CINDERELLA STORY OF “SEDUCING CINDERELLA”

(or, How I Went From Aspiring Author to NYT Bestselling Author in only 5 Months) It still blows my mind that I can add that title after my name.

Grandma’s Advice

Is anyone still out there? I’m sorry I’ve been away for so long. I’ve been trying to figure out how to do this whole “contracted author” thing. The first book I ever completed (Desires of the Soul, scheduled for release June 2013) took me 1 year to write and 2 years after that to get it right. Then I become … Read More

Word Count vs. Words That Count

As many of you know, I’m in major crunch mode. I gave myself a deadline of finishing my first Indulgence category romance by Monday the 16th.

So there’s this guy who reads romance novels…

No, this is not the set up to a joke…although I’m sure if I thought about it long enough I could make one up…but that would take away from the fact that there’s ACTUALLY A GUY WHO READS ROMANCE NOVELS! And I’m proud to say I now call him “friend.” And sometimes “fucking nutjob.” But mostly the former. His name … Read More

A Writer’s Guide to Avoiding Salesman Molestation

Today I was in Walmart when a young gentleman still ten yards away looked at me and said in an overly friendly voice, “Hello, ma’am, how are you today?”To which I sighed and mumbled, “Aw, shit.” It’s true the people down here in Texas are way friendlier than those in the north, but they’re not that damn friendly. I wasn’t … Read More

Authors Gone Wild! (wherein they act like boobs instead of flashing them)

By now I’m sure most of you have seen at least a few examples of Authors Behaving Badly in regards to reviews they’ve found to be less than favorable. No? Well, here’s the worst example I’ve seen. And if that isn’t enough for you, simply Google “authors behaving badly” and you can spend days getting lost in the muckety-muck. I … Read More
