I was gonna write up the obligatory end of year blog post, but ya know what? I’m just not into it. But I will tell you what you can expect from me in the coming year: 2016
If you’re following me on any sort of social media, you know that last year’s mantra was Focus On Your Own Shit. You guys, just saying this under my breath helped me redirect when I found myself getting caught up in comparing myself and my work to other authors. All of that redirecting has led to more productivity (I published three titles this year and wrote four) and I’ve also found more ways to connect with readers which has helped me sell more books and get more reviews! Implementing this mantra has worked so well that I’m implementing it again.
You Are The Magic is just going to be my daily reminder that I can make anything happen if I put my mind to it. It’s my attempt at living a life of intention instead of just waiting for those things I want to happen on their own.
On the book front…
Having it Both Ways (now on pre-order!) will be published in February. There are have been a few setbacks, but I’m working on getting everything resolved to meet the pub date.
Yves Santiago has always prided herself on knowing how to be alone, but in the wake of her break up with Elijah Weinstein she seems to have forgotten everything she ever learned. Boys and booze don’t seem to fill that emptiness as easily as it had before and as depression threatens to take her under she turns to the one thing that has always buoyed her: writing.Alarmed by her depressive blog posts and concerned about her mental well being, Yves’s family and friends rally around her along with the one person she least expected to reenter her life, Julian Webster. His sweetness and caring turns out to be exactly the thing she needs to rebuild her confidence in herself and her talent.Yves works her way back to some semblance of normalcy but as her book moves toward publication she knows that she will have to face Elijah. Will the confidence she worked so hard to rebuild crumble in his presence?
“Where she came from Cops weren’t heroes. They were not to be trusted.”Photojournalist and wedding photographer Ava Greene has been unlucky in love and yes, she is more than a little bitter about it. Especially when people like her best friend Yves seemed to be getting more than their fair share.With one dead boyfriend, two in jail and one who refused to leave his wife, Ava has officially given up on finding Mr. Right and is only interested in Mr. Right Now when Officer Paolo Leone walks into her life.
Cocky, dark and domineering, she knows that this stocky Italian cop could spell trouble for her.Ava tries to make it clear to Paolo that she is the sort of woman who doesn’t want to be rescued, that she doesn’t need to be worshipped, but he is convinced that is exactly she needs it.But when Ava finds herself on the wrong side of the law, will his adherence to the “blue code” erode the delicate trust this unlikely couple has built?
