Book Review: Unconditional by Cherie Hudson

Unconditional by Cherie Hudson **This title is NEW ADULT and not appropriate for teen readers** Many thanks to Pan Macmillan for offering me an ARC of this title. Their generosity has no impact on my review. I enjoyed this title and burned through it in one day. It’s a light-hearted semi-fairy tale of a young […]

Writing Real Characters

So, lately I’ve not been here, on my blog, because I am trying to get the final edits to CRUEL SUMMER done, so you can get your hot little hands on Kian, Ana, and MJ on March 16th, 2015 at the Girl Power Author Panel (deets to come). But I needed to squeeze in some […]

Why the agony of writing for teens is worth it

Writers can become burned out. I don’t mean the hyperventilating, “OMG I have no story ideas!” type of burn out. I mean the grind of the words, the constant push to out-write your last book, the stiff necks, the time crunches, and the piecemealing of a life outside of your characters’ worlds. You try to balance […]

Indie author life and other forms of torture

Last night I had an epiphany. One would think it would have been obvious to ME for a while now, but it wasn’t. You see, I am a self-published author, though I refer to myself as an “Indie” mainly because I operate like a business – like a small press. I am also a professional […]

Launch Party prep and other moments of insanity

I have totally ignored my blog, but I swear it was for many good reasons! Well . . . most of the time. That whole incident when I stole my daughter’s jumbo bag of Mega M&Ms and inhaled the whole thing may not have been wise, but I was writing for Kian at the time. I […]

Book Review – CREED by Leaver and Currie

Elijah Hawkins needs to die. Slowly. Painfully. Tortured until his pleads for mercy only serve to fuel my inner demon. Needless to say, I am not a fan of the man, which is why he was so perfectly written. When I started reading CREED by Trisha Leaver and Lindsay Currie, I was expecting to hide […]

Cassie Mae Book Reviews

Last year I stumbled upon an author by the name of Cassie Mae and her book, FRIDAY NIGHT ALIBI. The riotous way Mae wrote her main characters quickly had me hooked. In FRIDAY NIGHT ALIBI, soon-to-be-college student Kellie makes quite a few bucks thanks to the boys in town who want to date girls their parents don’t exactly […]

Know thy Audience. ALWAYS.

If there is ever a phrase that sends chills through my body, it is: “Well, I’m not really sure if my COMPLETED manuscript is exactly aimed for teens. Maybe it is more middle grade? But then again, I guess it could be adult.” Oh, dear lord. There is nothing, NOTHING more important than knowing WHO […]

Book Launch Date for STORMFRONT

There are two things that should be known about me as a blogger (cue the whole “excuses, excuses” rant): 1. I am CONSTANTLY working – editing for someone, working on my own stuff, and getting grabbed to do a screen play (yeah, that last one was a shocker for me too). 2. I have kids […]
