I mean, the Stanley Cup playoffs ARE coming (and I'm not feeling too optimistic about them with the way my Predators are playing) but that's not what I'm talking about.
I'm talking about my FIRST hockey romance novel! Two For Holding is less than two weeks away from release. On April 4th, you'll get to meet Porter, Savannah, and Logan- three people I fell in love with the second I started writing about them.
I seriously can't wait for the world to see them. I'm hoping that you've already started the 425 Madison Series by now because if you haven't, you're seriously missing out! Each one is by a different amazing author, all set in the same little world, but each available to be read on its own.
Go! Pre-order Two For Holding ( http://bit.ly/KG-TFH ) and then start working your way through the first three books. You'll thank me later- I promise!
Once you've read TFH, leave a review, drop me a line, and let me know what you think!
And who knows... Maybe you'll see some of those hockey players...
I'm so excited to make 2019 the best year yet in both my personal life and my author world! It's already off to a GREAT start and this is one of the big reasons why!
I've teamed up with eight other amazing authors- Lauren Helms, Allie York, Sylvia Kane, Leigh Lennon, Aubree Valentine, Clare Lesbirel, MK Moore, and Katy Ames- to bring a new series to your eReaders next year.
One luxury high-rise apartment building.
Nine delicious romances set against the backdrop of fast-paced and sexy New York City.
With plenty of residents; all with their own stories to tell.
Join these authors as they come together, each with a standalone romance for you to enjoy.
Each tale offers you something new, something different. These aren't your mama's romance novels...
After all 425 Madison is the perfect place to fall in love.
In my defense, 2018 was really busy. I wasn't planning on working full time at all in 2018 but then ended up working full time for most of 2018. Couple that with grad school and then these pesky evening certification classes I had to take all fall (so glad those are done!) and my family barely got to see me. That left no time to write!
But things have settled down a lot. I've found a rhythm in my classroom that works really well, those evening classes are over, and I'm feeling less stress all around. Since winter break started, I've written SO MANY WORDS!!!
Anyhow, I'm not going to leave 2018 with only one book released. Nope. I just hit "publish" on Reduced to Ashes!!! Depending on Amazon, it should be out tomorrow or Tuesday.
Reduced to Ashes is the final book in my New Hope Fire Department series. I loved all of my characters in those books but I have so many projects upcoming. One I'll tell you about more this week! Tori and Evan's story was fu...
After more than two years of writing, Finding a Hart is finally done and suitable for public eyes! This story had so many complete overhauls. Heck, it started as a love triangle (but it's not anymore, I promise!)
I love all of the characters involved and feel like we've been through a long, LONG journey together.
I hope you all enjoy it! Remember- some of the characters from Summer by the Lake show up. It's not necessary to read SBTL first, though.
If you do read Finding a Hart (or any of my books!) please shoot me a message and let me know what you think. Reviews are always helpful and appreciated, too!
My books are only available on Amazon (but can be read on any device that can download the Kindle app!) and always free if you have a Kindle Unlimited subscription!
The cover for Finding a Hart is here and one of the cover models has the ability to make my ovaries go up in smoke!
The book is expected to be out on January 9, 2018 on Amazon. As usual with my books, it will be available to Kindle Unlimited users for free!
Feel free to add it to your Goodreads now! http://bit.ly/GR-FAH
Stephanie Gibson is a nurturer. Growing up the oldest of four basically ingrained that into her personality early on. She’ll do anything she can for anyone whether it’s in her personal life or her career. So when she finds the most precious item in a pile of garbage one winter night, it doesn’t surprise anyone that she jumps in to help.
Jared Hart has worked hard to get to where he is in his career, with great sacrifice to his own personal life. The idea of having a family is something he has pushed to the back of his mind. So when the news comes that his life has changed in the blink of an eye, he’s glad to find support in the form of a gorgeous social worker.
Next week is Thanksgiving. That means that the year is ALMOST over! Where did 2017 go?!
When I'm not real-life adulting, I'm deep in the writing cave. Finding a Hart is coming along but a bit slower than I'd like after I did kind of a plot overhaul. I do have a BEAUTIFUL cover all ready for it that I'll share once we have a set release date. My hope and goal is still to have it out before the end of the year but I won't sacrifice quality just to have it out sooner.
On the pipeline for next year we have a few different books. One of them will be Reduced to Ashes, which is Book Three of the New Hope Fire Department series. This book will feature Victoria Jones and tell us her story.
I also have a couple other stories that are about half done that don't have titles, but they will all be standalones.
In the meantime, I hope everyone has an amazing upcoming holiday. Stay tuned because I'll be giving away a signed paperback set of Scars of the Past, Present, and Future to kick off the holiday se...
Yesterday was the three year publishversary of Scars of the Past, my very first book.
I've come a really long way since I first hit "publish" on that book (or so I'd like to think!)
Last week I published my ninth book, Summer by the Lake, and I still can't believe it. I'm currently working on the tenth, Finding a Hart, which I'm hoping to have out by the end of the year.
Writing is fun. Publishing, while it can also be fun, is SO scary. Putting your words out there for someone to love, hate, judge, and dissect is not an easy feat. I've discovered that I have to have a thick skin. I've discovered that I shouldn't stalk reviews or ratings. I've discovered that if even one person enjoys my books, I feel insanely fulfilled.
I'm not perfect. I don't hire an editor to help me with my books. I enlist the help of two amazing people and hope that we find as many errors as possible. Everything is constantly being looked at again and being fixed if it needs to be. Please know that if you are unsatisf...
So, my ninth novel finally has a cover and I absolutely love it. I've been writing this book for more than a year. I think I started writing it before Scars of Hope (Calla's book, fifth in the Scars series) and I always came back to write a chapter here and there.
Now it's done and first few reviews on it have been fantastic. It's going through the editing process right (Which is really just me and two others rereading it constantly!) and then it will be up on Amazon by September 5th!
In the meantime, take a look at this snazzy cover and the plot summary below!
Summer by the Lake, coming September 5, 2017 on Amazon!
It's funny, really. I cried the first time my parents made me go to Camp Holcomb. I mean, come on- I was only eight and really far from home. Spending eight weeks at some strange place was scary.
As it turned out, I didn't hate it. Every summer after that, I returned to Holcomb Lake and the camp I loved so much. I made friends, I had experiences, and the time passed...
The paperbacks are coming! The paperbacks are coming!
The first three books in the Scars Series (Past, Present, and Future) have all been converted to paperback and should be available on Amazon within the week.
I'm not going to lie- when the proof for Past came in the mail a few days ago, I wanted to cry. It was just so dang surreal and so pretty! I never imagined that I'd be holding a book full of words that I put together. It still feels unreal!
Once I finish with Summer by the Lake, the remaining books (Denial, Hope, Surface, and both New Hope Fire Department books) will be made available on paperback as well. I know ebooks are all the craze (and, quite honestly, my preferred source of reading nowadays!) but I definitely wanted the option to be there!
Stay tuned because I'll be offering up a chance to win signed copies of the books in the next few wees!
Until then, take a look at the proof of Past below!
