Hope everybody has a safe and happy Halloween! I did something very scary today. I sent my Secret Need beta draft off to the beta readers.

It's been just shy of a year since I've written a blog post and a lot has happened in that time. Honestly, it's probably too much to re-cap fully. Instead, I'd like to talk about one of the reasons I stopped posting as much. After publishing my first book back in April 2015, I was on… Continue reading Sophomore Slump
Back at the beginning of May I participated in an online book fair hosted by Carol Davis called "Spring" into Reading. It was a lot of fun and I had a chance to meet many readers, as well as some fellow authors. One of those authors was Aaron Hubble.
