Reader Group

So, I’m always working to learn and grow as an indie author. This week I learned that I should already have a Facebook reader group and a newsletter. I’ve been slacking, apparently, but I’m correcting it. The reader group is up and I’m working on my newsletter. Both will have insider scoops, deals, giveaways, etc. So, be sure to join and sign-up! The link to the reader group is posted below.

Crushed Release

IMG_0766As you know, book two of the In This Moment Series-Crushed, is with my editor. I’m hoping for a summer release date. (Fingers & toes crossed) In the mean time, I’m doing some prep work. I’ve contacted a couple of PR companies, but I’m testing the waters to see how successful I can be on my own. Fill out the google form below, if you’d like to help me with my release day promotion. It’s subject to change, if I decide to go with a PR company. If you know anyone that may be interested in participating, feel free to share. I’m growing and learning as I go. This release is going to awesome! Thanks in advance!


In This Moment is currently on sale for $1.99 through the end of the month. Crushed, book 2 in the series, is being sent to the editor this week. I’m aiming for a summer release. Fingers crossed. Dates will be announced closer to time. I’m posting the unofficial blurb below.

“It’s not the moment that defines you, it’s the choices you make in reaction to it.”

The past ten years of Julianna’s life have been defined by the worst night of her life. Blinded by pain and dreams crushed, she dropped out of college, married the wrong guy, and moved hundreds of miles away. But her unsuccessful attempt to run away from her demons only landed her back right back on the starting line.

Feeling lost and alone, Julianna must face the ghosts that haunt her and the people she left behind.

Eric’s world crumbled after she left town. Thinking he’d never see her again, he severed their ties and worked hard to get his life back on track. Julianna is a source of heartache for him, he knows he should keep his distance, but he can’t turn his back on her.

When avoidance is no longer an option, old feelings quickly resurface. He’s willing to risk everything to finally get the girl, but secrets and the shadows of their past threaten to destroy the possibility of a future

In this moment – Release


“Our lives are made up of moments, and I used to think it was only the big moments that made an impact, but now I know even the smallest of moments can change your life forever.”  

Two years ago, tragedy struck for Elizabeth Shea, ensuring her life would never be the same. Unable to let go of the past and unwilling to face the future, she closed herself off from the world and the people who loved her most.

It’s strange how the worst day of your life can become the very thing that changes it for the better.”

Brenden Scott chose to embrace the ugliness life can offer and help others find their way through the darkness, but it took a near fatal night for him to truly begin to embrace life.

Now, he lives his life in the moment, enjoying it to the fullest and taking nothing for granted.

When Elizabeth and Brenden meet, they’re drawn to each other and an unlikely friendship forms. Brenden breathes new life into her, while Elizabeth heals parts of him he didn’t even realize were broken.

Though Brenden knows pursuing her is a bad idea, he can’t resist her pull. When emotions get involved and the lines start to blur, they find themselves standing on opposite sides of the tracks. 
Elizabeth is desperate to put the pain and heartbreak behind her—to find herself again—but will she be able to let go of the past or fears holding her back and learn to live in this moment?

A part of me 

This is so true. Every story I write has little pieces of me sprinkled in. Perhaps that’s why writers tend to take their writing so seriously or it feels so personal when someone doesn’t like it, because we’ve put ourselves into our writing in more ways than one.
