I MET DAVID COOK !!!!

If you know anything about me at all, you know I'm a huge David Cook fan and gave been since his days on Idol.
Last night I went to my 3rd DC concert, this one in Nashville. I drove 3 hours to see him and it was well worth it.

At the end of the show he came out to meet EVERYONE.  I finally got to meet him. Yes, I remained calm. LOL

Here are some of my videos from the show and of course the moment I met him:

LITTLE WHITE LIES Now Available!

Little White Lies is now available at Amazon.


It'll be exclusive to Kindle for 3 months, then available on Nook as well. I do this exclusivity because I get a higher royalty rate during the months my books are exclusive and the fact is, I just don't sell a lot on Nook. Not sure why that is, but it's a bummer.





This is the cover chosen for the Kindle edition. After the mixed feedback received on covers, I decided to go with this one for Kindle. I'll use a different one for Nook, and if I release in print, I'll choose a different one for that. 


This is actually the second book I ever wrote, and the first written as "romance."  It was a hard sell as the hero and heroine were 19 and 15 when they got together and their relationship resulted in a teenage pregnancy. I'm thankful for self-publishing so I can sell this story. 

I just can't do the cookie cutter romance. Whatever I write, it comes out with a dark side to it. I have to have something real. I enjoy reading the happy, bubbly love stories, too, but let's face it. We read romances because we want to believe in second chances. We want to believe that no matter how badly a relationship has been screwed up, no matter how dire the circumstances, no matter how poor the choices or horrible the mistakes,  it can be saved. 

Those are the stories I write. I drag my poor characters through hell to show that no matter what, there is always hope.

Updates

Just wanted to give an update on the status of ... well, everything.

Moonlit Majesty is still in process of being written.

Editing over 500 pages of manuscript to release Little White Lies, a romantic suspense.

Just found out the editor/publisher for my Blood Revelation series passed away Sunday night. This is very sad as Linda Kichline was a very sweet woman and far too young to leave us so soon. The authors have not yet heard what is to become of our works published with Imajinn. I imagine we will probably get our rights back. If so, I will be self-publishing the series rather than finding a new publisher. Two of the books in the series have been published already, with two more complete and ready to be published so if I get the rights back I will have those out as soon as I upload and get the cover art finished. Again, we have not been advised of anything and given the suddenness and  unexpectedness of this situation, I don't know when we will know anything but I will update as soon as I know something. Right now, just praying for Linda's family through this hard time. :(

As for me,  I have been very sick for quite a while and only seems to be getting worse. Went to doctor today where I was poked, prodded and apparently even pregnancy tested despite having tubes tied ten years ago and not doing ANYTHING to get pregnant in so long I can't even remember. Coulda saved the doc some trouble on that one but whatever. LOL. Sorry, gotta laugh through hard times in order to not totally lose it.

Anyway, it's a struggle but gotta keep pressing on. I am doing my best to write/edit as much as possible on days I can make it through work. Sadly, on days I can't make it to or through work I pretty much can't do anything but be sick. If I'm lucky, I sleep.

Hopefully the results of today's blood work will give us some answers as to what is going on with me. I just know I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired.

I promise I will get new material out as soon as I possibly can.
