Hot New Releases

So I realize in all the craziness that has been this month--I forgot to post hot new releases. Other than the new Samplers from the Indelibles (free, y'all!) 

There is this: 

Enchanted meets Peter Pan in LOVE, TINK

This is a 12k novelette (approx 57pg)-- the first of six episodes.

Tink is hopelessly smitten with Peter, the leader of the Lost Boys who'd mysteriously arrived at Neverland two years ago. Unfortunately, Peter is tired of the adventure and especially tired of dodging Captain Hook who is after his head. He just wants to go back to New York City and live his life as a normal fifteen year old

Tink is the only one who can help Peter return, but it breaks her heart to do it. She just wants to make him happy, so she does the unthinkable and betrays the fairy king. Now her heart is filled with remorse. Should she go after Peter? Should she follow him to his New York?

My review:
This is the first in a series of sweet YA romances featuring Tink and Peter Pan, as Tink makes the ultimate sacrifice to keep Peter happy.

A quick, satisfying read that will leave you begging for the next installment. Loved it!

Indie Life--Slowing Down

Just because you can publish everything you write, doesn't mean you should. Yes, that backlist is extremely important. The more titles readers can choose from, the higher the potential profit. At the same time, not every book you write will resonate, and not every book is immediately ready for public consumption.

It's important to slow down. This isn't a race. "First one out" doesn't always win. No, there's nothing standing in your way. If you want to publish that time-traveling steampunk apocalyptic space opera, go for it. 

At the same time: SLOW DOWN. 
 Make sure it's ready. 

Indie = No Rushing Required.

Because being Indie doesn't have to mean going it alone.

Checking in. . . .

Consider this post the official


I'm so sorry for the radio silence lately. A *lot* is going on, quite frankly. That includes the death of my grandmother earlier this week. It wasn't unexpected, but the funeral and family gatherings took a lot out of all of us. I also missed work, which means I'm grading papers all day Saturday and Sunday (boo).

Hopefully things will slow down in the next few weeks, and I can find my routine again.

In other news, I'm trying to get my WIP out the door to betas. As soon as the tweaks are done, I'll have a "new release" announcement to make, and a cover reveal, and all that good stuff. 

Right now, it's one day at a time. :)
