What's Next

So now that Faith is released I am going to focus on Painted Lines, I am hoping to have it released in June.  I cannot wait for you to meet Scout, she is quickly becoming one of my favorite characters.  After that I will focus my attention on Tribal, a novella for the My Misery Muse series, I am trying to get that out by the end of July, but it may be the beginning of August.  I will have more info for you on Tribal as soon as I have a better idea on what is going to happen.  I can't tell you when MMM3 will be out since I have not started working on it, but I am going to try for a fall release.  I have decided there will be five books in the My Misery Muse series and two novella's, though I can't give you a timeline on all of them at this point, or any information since I have ideas about what will happen next but those ideas often isn't whats written.  I have numerous other project going as well and will let you know about them soon, Nothing Is which is listed on goodreads is one of those projects, and I am going to attempt to have it out in 2014.  So that's what I am up to at this time I'll let you know if that changes and when I have more to tell you.

Faith released 3/27

So I had Faith finished sooner than I thought I would and so I released it early, its been a bit of a roller coaster the past few days so I am only now getting to post this.  I am now refocusing on Painted Lines, so excited about this one, and after Painted Lines I will finish a novella for the MMM series.  I am hoping to have both out this summer.

My take on Piracy

Yea I know you are seeing authors complain about piracy all over the place, and you're probably wondering why are we pitching such a fit. You may see it as us whining over the loss of money we could be making, but in all reality its not that. It's the lack of respect this shows for us, its the pain we feel when we see someone take something with no regard to the emotional investment we have put into it. When I first saw My Misery Muse on a torrent site it felt like someone punched me in the stomach, stomped on my toes, and told me I was worthless in one fell swoop. It told me that someone had so little respect for the amount of time, tears, and love that I put into writing a story that they felt the right to take it from me, to lessen what I did, what I accomplished. It is not about the money, because in all reality we don't make a lot of money from this, what we do make is then turn around and put back into developing new stories for you to enjoy, berate, tear apart, love, hate, feel some sort of emotion for even if it is contempt. We do this over and over, we put ourselves out there and in return we are told by these sites that our effort is not worth the small amount of money that we gain. It makes us doubt ourselves, our stories, and makes us rethink is it worth putting ourselves through this if you're just going to steal it, and its not just my bank account that you're stealing from, it my emotions, my heart and my dream.

I thank every person who has purchased my books through legitimate sites, I appreciate the support and respect you have shown me. Those who have chosen to steal something so personal from me or any other author, musician, actor, developer, shame on you for belittling us and telling us that what we do is not worthy of respect.

Faith Cover

Thank you again Okay Creations for another gorgeous cover
“So, about the last time we saw each other…” I started.
He nodded his head. “It was fun; we should do it again soon.”
I shook my head. “No, I don’t think we should.”
“Fine, Mags, what do you need to tell me so we can get back to the party?”
“I’m pregnant.”
He stared at me slack jawed then snapped it closed. “Well, it’s not mine, we used a condom.”
Set two years after we left Devi and Seth in My Misery Muse, comes Faith where Drake Porter and Mags Sands’ story unfolds.
Mags is a single mother, running her own business, trying to make ends meet. Drake is an A&R guy for a local indie record company who has been working nonstop for a year. When both finally take a vacation with family and friends, they are forced to finally admit, at least to themselves, that they have feelings for each other.
When they go home, they find it even more difficult to put the past in the past and maintain a relationship strong enough to face the challenges ahead. Follow along as they try to make a relationship work while fighting demons of their own, through circumstances not of their making, and with family and friends trying to help.
