Some Love for Accidental Texting

I just wanted to thank Lori over at the “50 Shades Of Gabriels Crossfire Unscripted Destiny – Book Club page” on Facebook for showing Accidental Texting some love. Sean and Morgan appreciate you almost as much as I do. =) For more book suggestions from someone with obvious good taste, check her out here:

Happy reading everyone!

My Priority

To my fans who are desperately seeking novels… I’m sorry. This is my current priority.

The Ladybug

But there is good news and that is that now that my body is my own again–and my brain is not constantly looking to sleep or eat or sleep and then eat or eat while sleeping like it was when I was pregnant–my characters have returned to my brain. They have stories they are trying to get me to tell. Unfortunately, my little ladybug is taking all of my time, attention, and arm strength as I cannot for the life of me put her down. I’ve composed many fine speeches in my head as I’ve watched her sleep for hours on end (she is SUCH a restless sleeper when I’m not holding her), but I haven’t been able to actually type them up. I’m trying to find a way to devote some time to writing before I head back to my massively time consuming and unappreciated job as a teacher, but my attention is on my adorably squirmy miracle.

The precious Ladybug

So due to the interference of the ladybug, I have no idea when I will get another novel out. I haven’t stopped writing by any means, but I want to spend as much time as possible with the ladybug. I’ve received a couple upsetting emails where I’ve been accused of things like “no longer caring” about my characters. That couldn’t be further from the truth, but my fictional characters understand that the real-life baby in my arms comes first. I hope you’ll do the same. Thank you all for reading and for being patient. =)

What I’ve Been Working on Lately

Baby Montague 12 weeks

My little one at 12 weeks.

I haven’t done any writing since I’ve been busy working on this little one. It has been a very long road full of shots and specialists and eight years to get to this point, so I’m being completely careful with baby and staying as healthy and stress-free as I can. My husband and I are so thrilled about baby that all our spare time has gone to preparing. And, if you’ve ever gone through constant nausea, total exhaustion, and round ligament pain, then you know just how very little “spare time” exists for me. Not to mention, the demands of being a full-time high school English teacher are significantly greater this year than ever with our shift to nationwide common core standards, but that’s a whole other ball of sticky, difficult wax.

So, I wish I had better news on the book release front, but other than doing some thinking about Uncontained: Setenid Blight Book Three and how I can fix the pacing, I haven’t done a thing related to writing. You know I’m obsessed with my characters as much as you are and they will get written, just for now, my priorities have to be elsewhere. Thank you all for being awesome fans and wish me luck as I venture into mommyhood.

Coming October 19… Accidental Texting: Finding Love despite the Spotlight

I’m excited to finally release this novel into the big world of romance readers. I love Sean and Morgan and hope that everyone enjoys their whirlwind romance as much as I enjoyed writing it.

Cover for Accidental Texting

 

Looking for a few good beta-readers

Hey everyone! I have a new book ready. Sorry, it’s not the next Setenid Blight (I’m still working through some pacing issues I’m not happy with), but it is a project I’ve been playing with for several months. It’s an adult contemporary romance called Fitting Together: A Story of Love in the Spotlight. The description is below. If you’re interested, please use the ole “contact me” thingie ma bobber in the upper right and let me know the following:

  • Have you beta-read before?
  • Can  you give solid feedback on questions about pacing (where you skimmed and when you were less interested), plausibility (where did you roll your eyes over the fact that this would never happen), and characterization (did you like the characters? did you feel they grew?)?
  • Do you have the time to read 160,000 words in the next two weeks?
  • Do you typically read adult contemporary romance?

Thanks everyone for all the support =)

Fitting Together: A Story of Love in the Spotlight

Morgan Edwards has been through a lot: being left at the altar by a man trying to use her, losing her mother to Cancer, and trying to keep her mom’s dream alive by running the Victorian inn they spent years restoring together. Her world is such a mess that she has no time for distractions. But when it feels like things are hopeless, an accidental text message manages to pull her out of this pit of despair and infuse a little excitement into her life.

Sean Wilder has it all: fame, fortune, and a very long list of ladies who’ve been more than happy to share his bed. But what he finds in the girl he accidentally texts is entirely unexpected. Too accustomed to a world where everyone has an ulterior motive, he’s taken aback by Morgan’s honesty, her sincerity, and her struggle to do everything on her own despite the incredibly tough spot she’s in.

Similar life experiences draw them to one another, but can they fit together when Morgan finds out Sean’s true identity? And can she find a way to fit next to him in the spotlight?

Miami, Maryland, now CA… Possible Setenid Blight in Real-Life News

The latest in possible Setenid Blight outbreak news comes to use from the wonderful Tyra over at Book Snobs who shared a frightening article about a man in CA. It seems Jarrod Wyatt of Crescent City, CA decided it was a good idea to cut out his friend’s heart and tongue as well as a few other major organs while his buddy was still alive. He was found naked and covered in blood saying, “I killed him.”

I know what you’re thinking, though. Violence, death, removal of organs–these things happen all the time. How is this related to the Setenid Blight, Kimberly? Well, it comes to down to a pesky little reference to mushrooms.

Witnesses say the two had ingested hallucinogenic mushrooms before the attack and believed they were involved in a struggle between God and the devil.

If you’ve read Altered, you know this hits a little too close to home. So beware, be on the lookout for flu-like symptoms, and above all else, stay away from anyone exhibiting sudden, overly aggressive behavior. Good luck to us all.

Awesome Review for Manipulated and Divided!

Check out the wonderful things Kelly over at Reading the Paranormal had to say about Manipulated and Divided!

I can’t lie to you: I am IN LOVE with this series.

This isn’t a series about an outbreak with a little romance. It’s about romance that happens to blossom right before an outbreak happens. These characters are given something to live for and they fight for it. They aren’t willing to give in and let a pesky little zombification infection slow them down.

It’s chilling and heartbreaking and I loved every second of it. I am just… smitten by everything Kimberly Montague has thrown at us so far. I want to know about ALL the different outbreaks now.
