Bookstores and Book Signings

I’ve had many Indie authors ask me how I landed book signings for UNDERTOW at various bookstores. The questions were the same: How did I ask them? What did I say? Who did I beg? Want the truth? I didn’t ask any of them. Instead, they asked me. Now, don’t get me wrong – I […]

The Write Space

The other day my daughter came into my office (okay – more like a walk-through, jammed between my kids’ bedrooms and our great room) and said, “Wow – your office looks worse than my locker.” Ummm . . . why yes. Yes, it does. Which got me thinking (no, not about cleaning it). I thought […]

Self-Published Marketing

Another writer once asked me why, OH WHY, did I bother with live models? They asked, “Isn’t that time-consuming? Expensive? What if the photos don’t come out right? What if the models don’t understand their characters’ emotions?” The questions went on and on . . . I simply responded, “Well, first of all, what would […]

UNDERTOW novel in the news!

UNDERTOW has some awesome fans – I have been very blessed in that respect. Readers, reviewers, and Cape Codders have all become quite a fabulous cheering section. To them all, I cannot say THANK YOU enough :) Today, I am sharing some pictures, reviews, and media from the past month. UNDERTOW released on October 13th. […]

Meet the UNDERTOW cast – Alex Duanais

If ever there was an unsung hero in the UNDERTOW insanity, it has to be Alex Duanais, our faithful photographer. I stupidly assumed I could take the photos (cue rolling on floor laughing) and thankfully John Sullivan had a photographer on standby – Alex. Young as he was, he did a fabulous job!! Shooting what […]

It has been an amazing ride with UNDERTOW thus far, and I can’t thank the fans, my family, Cape Cod, and my fellow writers enough! A big high-five to the Fiction Fanatics and author Trisha Leaver (check our her Facebook Page here). Huge thanks to Nate, Jill, the newspapers, the local bookshops, and John Sullivan […]

Meet the UNDERTOW cast – Ana Lane

Every character in UNDERTOW has their own back story – not just little details, but HUGE stories. I wrote it that way so that readers would connect with multiple characters and not just Eila and Raef.¬†As book review blog Twin Spin writes, “Although there was one main character in Eila, there was a great and […]

Meet the UNDERTOW cast – Christian Raines

In searching for faces to represent UNDERTOW, there were a couple of characters that I didn’t really think I would even try to find. For one, I knew no one who could fit the bill for either Christian Raines or Rilin West. Secondly, they were “big reveal” characters, therefore I was unsure if I could […]

Meet the Undertow Cast – MJ Williams

Finding MJ was up there with finding Kian – basically I was screwed. I had resorted to digging through RF sights and praying I could drop a nameless model into what I needed. But after weeks of searching, I came up with a big, fat NOTHING. When I relayed the fact that I needed a […]

Meet the Undertow Cast – Nikki Shea

When I wrote the character known as Nikki Shea, I never wanted her to be the typical mean girl. Most people who read the novel though, automatically assumed she was a stick-thin blonde. But in my head? In my head she was Jessica Rabbit crossed with Scarlett O’Hara. She was this curvaceous brunette who knew […]
