Here's my latest book trailer. It's for the novel The Only Life There Is and features a song I co-wrote with Laura Moyers.
Recently, Kobo has opened up a platform for independent authors. I had previously used Smashwords to market my novels for Kobo, but yesterday, I deselected that option at Smashwords, and I am currently uploading them directly to Kobo. If you are looking for my novels on that site, they will be reappearing shortly.
One of my projects for this week is to push through the line edits on my young adult issues novel called Witness, and between yesterday and today, I've made pretty good progress. Three out of twenty-one chapters are done. I keep trying not to look at the pile of pages still to go, and it's always better not to look at how much red pen is scrawled over the page. Some poor tree died for this paper, and now the paper is dying of free speech. Go figure. :) Still, I'm shooting to get this one and one more novel out before I go back to work. It will be a tight squeeze, but I believe in miracles.
If you want a peek at my inspirations for the characters, feel free to follow me at pintrest. I'm trying to put up a separate board for each book. I will say that my editor thinks Witness has the same feel as October Breezes, which is really exciting to me.
Speaking of October Breezes, I just released October Breezes Two Pack into print. The link is image below.
I'm always glad when one book ends so I can start writing another. I think it's the fact that all these fun ideas come at me, and I really can't do anything when I'm in the middle of a book so it's kind of like being a kid in a candy store when I go to pick my next project. Since the last two novels I've written--Dreamer and Witness--were both young adult, I decided on a women's fiction title. Here's the cover, which was designed by Claudia at Phatpuppy Art:
The only thing worse than an abusive husband is a dead abusive husband bent on revenge.
That's what Kate Thibeaux is facing, considering last year she killed her own husband, Kevin Garrison, when he'd left her no choice. She's changed her name, her looks, and everything else about her, as if that would stop Kevin. Kevin haunts her every step, and she wonders if she's going crazy when she moves back to her hometown in a last-ditch effort to leave the past behind.
Kevin, however, won't be forgotten even as Kate reunites with her best friend, Melody Kriss, who introduces her to her brother, Adam Kriss. Neither Melody nor Adam knows about Kevin, but some people refuse to stay buried. When their lives collide, Kate isn't looking for love, and Adam isn't looking to save anyone, but sometimes people find what they need in the last places they expect.
I'm an indie author with over forty books.
