Try A New Author for 99 cents

This week only Shackled and Unbreakable are only 99 cents on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.  As a relatively new author, I know you may not have read my work yet, so I ask my publisher if we could do a 99 cent week to give you a chance to try out my work for CHEAP! Here’s a little snippet from Shackled:

“As I focus on taking one Breath at a time, the pounding of our footsteps on the damp pavement reminds me of a wildly beating heart and I find myself coming back again and again to one thought. How did I get in this mess? Then with sickening clarity, I remember. Oh, yeah, I was the new kid.”

Unbreakable Love is a light guardian angel story. Here's a little quip:
“Come back to me, Jennie” he pled, raw anguish seeping from his words.
Jennie could feel that sensation again, it felt far away but stronger this time. Waves of light and contentment rolled through her like a healing balm. Suddenly she became conscious of air moving through her lungs where they had been empty before. It hurt; every breath stung. Then all at once, her senses began to focus in on his hand connecting to hers, sending those unspeakable sensations. Her eyes felt heavy and she had force them open by sheer will. Every message coming from her brain screamed open your eyes. They fluttered and then she was trying to focus, trying to handle the overwhelming light coming from the pool and overhead deck…at least until he bent over her fragile body and then she saw his face above her, terrified. 
Nate grabbed an oversized towel from a lawn chair and wrapped Jennie in it taking care not to touch her skin again. He was already afraid he would be taken off her case because of his carelessness, yet he did not regret his choice. He would never regret it. Effortlessly, he scooped her up and carried her out to the car.

Here the links for both books and Goodreads for more reviews.

The Problem With Me and Christmas Trees

I love, love, love Christmas time. I love the Frenzied shopping and the fact that you can hear Christmas carols on the radio.  I love that people put up a tacky blow up Santa next to an elaborate Nativity scene.  I love the cookies and the parties and all the other chaos that leads up to that one spectacular day. The Christmas season is the ultimate drama, with a predictably sweet ending.

I enjoy Christmas so much that I’ve been known to crack out the Christmas decorations the day after Halloween.  Gasp! Yes, I am one of those people. This being said, I do have one thing about Christmas that gives me trouble.  My Christmas tree is huge and unmanageable and cries out for my attention like some half-finished painting sitting in an artist’s basement! I find that no matter how many ornaments I buy, or what kind of ribbon I use, there is always a bald spot, or the ornaments aren’t placed quite right. Much like me, my tree seems to be a never-ending work in progress and therefore drives me crazy.  Will my tree ever be perfect? Probably not and neither will Christmas. Still, somehow, when I come down the stairs and my husband or kids have already turned on the hundreds of lights that weave through my twelve foot, semi realistic looking tree, I feel a charge of simple happiness. I hope that despite life’s imperfections, you are having a great Christmas season. Thanks for stopping by. Be sure to enter my giveaway for a 500 followers hope to connect with you again soon!
