Happy Birthday to Me!

Tags : 

I’m turning 43 this month!

For my birthday I want 43 reviews of Fractured Memories by the end of July!

Reviews are super important to authors. The book is free on Amazon and several other places.

What’s in it for you?

If I get 43 reviews by the end of the month, I’m going to write the scene where Jeff sees and meets Wendy for the first time from HIS point of view. Was it love at first sight? You’ll never know unless I get 43 reviews. ūüôā

So if you haven’t reviewed Fractured Memories yet, do it this week! And if you have, get another friend hooked on the series and have them leave a review.

I do have to say that I have the coolest friends ever!

Because they love me, and they know me so well, they made this for me.

Why yes, that is a Millennium Falcon bing-bag toss game. And yes, those are little Star Wars bing bags to toss.

Be jealous. It’s okay.

It’s awesome and super fun and the hubby and I have already played it. Sort of. What actually happened was that we tried to look cool and failed miserably.

Report and Giveaway

Tags : 

I thought I would do a quick check-in. Summer is always a dangerous balancing act between too much fun and not enough time. Hopefully everyone got through relatively unscathed.

I’m in the midst of editing Jagged Scars Book 5. If you follow me on Facebook, you’ve already seen this picture. This is about 2/3 of my plot. The pink tabs are big problems, the orange are minor problems, and I scrapped the entire finale, which is on the table next to the desk.

I keep telling myself it will be awesome! I won’t settle for anything less.


In the meantime, Fractured Memories is part of a Badass Babes & Bullets giveaway! If you’re hankering for a female protagonist that can kick anyone’s trash, click the image below. All of the books are free! Fractured Memories is in there, but I assume you’ve already read that. ūüėČ



So go, enjoy the last threads of summer. I’m going to edit a book!

Scavenger Hunt Time!

Tags : 

Stop #26 or Bust

Hey awesome YA readers. If you don’t know about the Alliance of Young Adult Author’s Summer Scavenger Hunt, go here for all the info.

I know you’re going to be absolutely shocked that I’m having a giveaway to go along with the Scavenger Hunt. If you love Post Apocalyptic action/adventure survival stories, and amazing characters (if I do say so myself) then check out my Jagged Scars Series.

The first book, Fractured Memories, is FREE on Amazon right now!

Sixteen year old Wendy never knew the world before the Starvation. She‚Äôs learned to put her trust in her knives, and her confidence in her fighting ability. When the Skinnies attack her compound, she’s the lone survivor.

Book 2, Severed Ties, is free if you sign up for my Newsletter. I never Spam, just let you know about giveaways, new releases and other awesome book I’m reading. Oh, and the “amazing” things my husband says. He thinks he’s hilarious…but he’s disillusion, so there’s that.

Also, and this is where it gets good, I’m going to giveaway four copies of my newest release in either Kindle or Nook form. It’s a Jagged Scars Novella called Crumbled Bonds. It won’t be released until June 30th, but if you win I’ll get you a pre-release copy as soon as they are ready.

Check out that cover. You know you want it. And if you’ve read any of my Jagged Scars books, that’s Jeff and Dillon. Need I say more? Okay, fine. Here you go.

Jeff only has one person left in this ruined world, his brother, Dillon. Their plan to head west over the mountains to look for refuge is interrupted when they stumble on a shielded building. The Starvation happened almost twenty years ago, but the mystery of what could be inside is too alluring to pass up. 

The two alone aren‚Äôt enough to crack the shield, so they risk a temporary alliance with strangers who they hope won’t stab them in their sleep or feed them to the Skinnies. When things go well, the strangers offer Jeff and Dillon a place among them, but Jeff quickly learns that while these people seem normal, there is something going on underneath the surface that will rip he and Dillon apart.

Summer Scavenger Hunt!

Tags : 

Summertime is almost here, and to celebrate, I’m participating in a¬†HUGE scavenger hunt¬†hosted by¬†the Alliance of Young Adult Authors (which includes me)!¬†This is a chance to meet some amazing new authors, grab a bunch of free books, and sign up to win some epic prizes.

Who doesn’t love prizes?

In addition to the $500 grand prize, each author will be giving away lots of free books and cool stuff , so be sure to check out their website during the scavenger hunt.


When the scavenger hunt begins on June 1st all you have to do is visit each site below in order and write down the special word to reconstruct the story. You can enter any of the giveaways or offers on anybody’s site, or just grab the special word and move on.


Each author will be given a special keyword, which will be bolded and all caps like this: BUTTERFLIES.

All you have to do is visit all the author’s sites in this order, write down the special keywords to discover the short story, then enter the giveaway with the completed short story. I’ll add a link soon where you can enter for the grand prize when you have the full story.

There will be one main giveaway for the main prize, but most of the participating authors will also have smaller giveaways for free books, amazon credit and author swag, so make sure you read their post carefully to see what else they’re offering while you’re on their site for the keyword.
