#Authors...Need More #Reviews? Join the Winter Games Event! #writerslife #writingcommunity #amwriting


Winter Games begins Feb. 1!Consumers often rely on reviews when making purchases...I know I do!  And on retail sites, products--including novels--with more reviews usually receive the most visibility in searches.  A reader can't even consider choosing a title they've never even seen or heard of, and the book market gets more crowded by the day.  A new title gets added to Amazon approximately every five minutes.On Amazon, the largest online retailer for e-books with 88.9% of the market (Bloomberg), only about 5 to 10% of consumers leave reviews after a purchase.  Everyone is busy, and I know even if I love a product, I often never get around to leaving a review.  (One of my resolutions is to ...

History of #Christmas Traditions: #StNick, Reindeer, + Trees #ChristmasEve #MerryChristmas


The writer in me loves looking into the origins of our holidays and celebrations, so for the Christmas season, I'm dedicating this post to St. Nick, reindeer, and the decorating of trees.  As usual with my origins/history posts, I'll do my disclaimer that I'm an author, not a historian, but I'm used to doing thorough research for my novels!  Obviously, St. Nick is a well-known figure associated with the Christmas holiday.  While most people are familiar with the story of Jesus's birth in Bethlehem, though, many are unaware of how a 4th century Bishop influenced the legend of Santa Claus.St. Nicholas of MyraSaint Nicholas, or Nikolaos of Myra, was a bishop in an ancient town in Lycia--now Dem...

Holiday #Recipe ~ Rosemary Nut Mix #homemade #gifts #HappyHolidays #amblogging #food


I am not a crafty person.  I’m creative, in terms of dreaming up plot twists and developing characters, but the closest I usually get to designing gorgeous gifts or beautiful centerpieces is adding pictures I love with instructions I probably can’t follow to my Pinterest boards.  I’m in awe of people who have that kind of talent. But I can follow simple recipes—emphasis on simple—and a few years ago, my sister-in-law, who always hosts Christmas with a dazzling display of gourmet foods and stunning decorations, served a nut mix that I just couldn’t get enough of.  And hey, it’s nuts—a good-for-you food, packed with protein, omega 3 fatty acids, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals.  Even with...

I'm a Featured Favorite Author on A #Soccer Mom's #Book Blog! #soccermom #reviews


Excited my pub made a few small changesto the original cover, including addingmy new USA TODAY Bestseller status!When my first novel, Silver Lake, came out in August of 2012, I didn't sleep for a week.  What would my friends and family think of my debut novel?  Would anyone else want to read it, beyond people I knew?  Would any book bloggers or review sites select it for review, and if they did, what would they say?  After spending 3 and 1/2 years writing, revising, and submitting to publishers, it was nerve-wracking to put something I'd worked so hard on out into the world...but I wrote it to hopefully entertain readers--and that's still why I write--so I knew I just had to cross my fingers...

#Books for Fans of #Twilight ~ #YA #Paranormal #Romance #Angels #amreading #Fantasy


Like millions of fans, I loved the Twilight series.  I was hooked from the beginning of book one, and I had to pace myself from then on in order to stretch the story out rather than finishing the series in a few days.  Some of my friends and I joked about needing a support group when we did finish--it was that addictive!  As a paranormal romance author myself, I thought a lot about what elements of the story arc made the series so compelling to so many readers.  And a few years later, when an idea for a Young Adult Paranormal Romance wound its way into my imagination and wouldn't let go, I decided to write it, even though YA is not my usual genre.  The end result was a story of forbidden lov...

My First Trophy! RONE Award Winner Best #paranormal #romance #amwriting


Guess what arrived?  I was over the moon to learn that The Haunting of Hillwood Farm won InD'Tale Magazine's 2019 RONE Award for Best Paranormal - Short...and now it's even more "real", with a beautiful glass trophy that makes me smile every time I see it! Opening the box made me realize this might be the first physical trophy I've ever received.  The only sports teams I was ever on in my younger years were poms in junior high and cheerleading in high school, and neither one of our squads was anywhere near good enough to compete.  For various achievements over the years, I've received a few plaques, some ribbons and medals, electronic badges and banners - all which were thrilling to earn and...
