I started working on Redemption quite a while ago but with job changes and my paranormal books taking off at one point, it got put on the back burner, but I came across this gorgeous premade cover on Facebook and had to have it for this book.
Redemption has no paranormal elements and those tend to be tougher for me to write, but always worth it. If you enjoyed The Fire Still Burns, you'll most likely love this book. :)
Coming in 2015...

Happy October everyone. The weather is getting cooler so the girls and I will be enjoying one more camping trip this year, but other than that I have nothing planned but writing.
Mail Horror Bride is now officially released so I hope you are giving my new pen name a try and enjoying it. :)
By writing that, I took some time off my romance novels under my own name so it is time to jump back in to that.
I'm working on a hilarious chick-lit and after that I plan on getting out another Moonlit, Blood Revelation, and zombie (Raymond Lee) novel ASAP!
Just giving you all an update. Now it's time to go write!
Mail Horror Bride, the first book released in my zombie series under my Raymond Lee pen name is now available for preorder, only on Amazon Get it for .99 while you can because once the book releases officially on 9/30/14 it will be $2.99
Also, enter to WIN Amazon gift cards by liking the Raymond Lee facebook page , liking the post announcing the pre-order & contest, and tagging your friends in the comments. You can tag as many friends as you like but each friend must be in a separate comment.
I will draw a winner on the release date. That winner and the friend they tagged each earn $5 Amazon gift cards. However, if the page gets 1000 likes by release day, the winners get $10 each!!!
It's August now and I'm getting closer to finishing Mail Horror Bride. I love it when I reach that point where the end is in sight and the words just flow. The August release date is looking pretty good. In fact, I will be in overdrive this week trying to finish it up before I start the 100 Day Dash.
The 100 Day Dash is a competition we have at work. Teams try to get as many steps as possible on their pedometers every day for 100 days. I want to win, even if it means figuring out a way to type my books up while walking. :)
It's also time for the kids to go back to school and this will be my youngest's first year of home school. Yep, I get to be a teacher in addition to working 40 hours a week in a call center and writing books. :)
It never fails that in the midst of one book , an ideal for another book will grab me and not let go. For a few months now I've been overwhelmed with scenes from a very funny chick-lit type book. This will be what I work on as soon as I wrap up Mail Horror Bride. I'll need something lighthearted and fun after finishing MHB. I hope to also have it released before the end of the year so I can have the second book in my zombie series out early 2015. Then it's on to Christian's story because the Blood Revelation story still has more to be told.
I've received word from The Wild Rose Press that Cook County Cowboys: Lucky and Chance will be released on 10/31/2014. Here is the cover art:
Thanks to all who've read my books and left such nice reviews. Remember, the best thing you can do for an author is introduce them to other readers!
I should be back soon with a release date for Mail Horror Bride!
This 4th of July weekend was supposed to be a huge writingfest weekend for me, but I unfortunately received a severe sunburn over the top half of my body after being awesome enough to take my kid to Warped Tour on July 3rd. See what happens to awesome moms who buy their teens tickets to concerts they are just dying to go to? They get punished by nature!
I'm a pasty white chick that simply does not tan. EVER. The sun is mean to me. I have had sunburns before but this is a whole new level of burn, people. My skin is screaming.
Anyway, no writing got done. I couldn't move my hands or arms much. Sleeping was quite tricky as well. I've gotten extremely creative with pillow placement seeing as how I can't actually lay down flat or rest my back against anything. Outer arms? Completely baked.
Needless to say, working on the book just wasn't happening. I spent 4th of July weekend watching the complete Walking Dead marathon from start to finish and cussing about the people still lighting fireworks long after the 4th ended.
But this skin has got to heal and once it does, I'm in writing overdrive. I want to get Mail Horror Bride out to you this month. I'm so disappointed my writingfest got ambushed by the sunburn from hell. I'm on the second half, soon to hit that beautiful part where the writing picks up speed and it just flows right out to the end so... hopefully it's done soon. Hopefully I wake up tomorrow without being in extreme pain.
I'll keep ya posted!
