SO many emotions right now!

Well... Wishful Thinking... it's done. No big deal.

Are you kidding?? It's HUGE!! I can't believe I wrote a story I never really intended on writing haha! But this time... it's really over.

Yes. If I keep writing this story, it's going to be overplayed and you really will end up hating me. It was fun writing both stories, and I LOVE these characters, but again - I don't want to drain them of their awesomeness LOL.

With that being said. My fingers are tired. I am not walking away, I promise (unlike what I said a few months ago LOL), but I do need to take a small break. I want to do more marketing. Mostly of my book, but I have so many awesome author friends who I want to help out, too.

I really wish (careful what you wish for lol), I could reach more of you, so you could read more. This market, which I am happy to see a lot of new authors, but its wayyyyyy over saturated. Don't get me wrong, I'm not being catty, but it's true. It's so much harder than it was two years ago to sell books. Everyone has their story to get out there, but there are more writers than readers :/ I know it's not true, but when my main platform is facebook and only 60 people are seeing the post, it's so much harder to sell books

SOOOO I'm going to happily give you guys this new book in March-ish and then I'm going to do some research on how to reach you more! <3

Anyway, enough about me bitching about Facebook (ps, fuck you Park Muckerberg lol)...

I might have some surprises coming up with Valentine's Day coming up :) so if you can see this, make sure you check my pages out (google +, twitter, tsu and Facebook) for something special :D

Okay, now to the hardest part of writing a story... editing :/ shoot me. No, not really. Throw a wadded piece of paper at me, please. LOL!

So, stay tuned for a release date of Wishful Thinking!! xoxox

Ps... see all the emotions I have through memes? LOL I need a meme anonymous...

The time has come for me to say it. It has to be said. And I know it's going to suck for me to say it and I know that people may get offended....

I'm getting older.

Lol! I have had to get my prescription in my glasses, umm, I guess strengthened? I actually feel better wearing them all the time. My whole body is achy in the morning and I think more things creak and crack in my body than they do on the floors.

So, I'm taking donations for my new body. New eyes, younger limbs. If you want to donate please call 1-800-555-OLDE. LOL!

No, but seriously. Nothing really new is going on so far. Careful What You Wish For had a wonderful re-release party and I met some more wonderful people. I wish every day was a party in both reality and in Facebook land. HAHA!

Speaking of Facebook. Gah. They have decided to make pages, yep mine included, PAY for the reach that we want. So, it went from a free site, which I guess it still is for personal, but for any sort of business or marketing pages - you are 'encouraged' to pay for the reach. Which means I have 2300 likes on my page. 62 of you are only seeing the posts. SERIOUSLY?!? Thanks Mark. You officially suck. I want things back to the way they were when I started the page, where I could reach almost ALL of my likes. *insert several cuss words here*

I'm not sure if I mentioned this in the last post but I'm going to repeat it.

When I wrote Careful What You Wish For (I'm gonna refer to it as just WISH from here on cause I picked a ridiculously long title LOL) I intended on it only being a stand alone. I thought it ended on a good note. I didn't have a cliffhanger. I just thought it was a perfect ending.

HOWEVER, I had some messages and reviews asking if I was going to make a sequel, per se, about Harley and her own kids. Well, shit. I really hadn't thought about that. SOOOOO after going back and forth on this.... I'm gonna do it. I did try writing it from Harley being pregnant, but it brought back scary memories of being sick, hungry and huge.Yes, I gained a lot of weight and I don't wanna go back down that road. I tried to make it at the point where she was a toddler and believe me - I am dealing with a 4 year old daughter of my own and I started to base it on my daughter... I wanted to drink more after some paragraphs haha!

I know it's a huge jump, but this story is going to be in the POV of Harley's daughter. She's in her very VERY early 20's. I know that's a big jump, but I REALLY hope you love this story, because it has cracked me up when I am writing.

Anyway, with my son just back at school from being off track, my daughter adjusting to being by herself again during the day- I'm going to get back to writing very soon. I'll have a release date very soon though :D please stay tuned!!

If you have read WISH, please let me know what you think! Leave me a review. I really do love reading them!

Well, back to the grind :/ laundry, dishes and a demanding little princess are calling me.

Happy New Year - 3 days late

Happy New Year!!! 2015...WOW.

This is the year...not sure for what yet, but I think this is the year. 2014 was quite a fun packed year. I published THREE books, yeah, I pretty much had no life. I was picked up by a publisher, I left that publisher and have worked my ass off.

Book sales, well they kinda dropped. Not just for me, but for everyone. I'm not sure why, but it was nice to have my readers sticking by me. It hit hard to have Facebook hiding posts from newsfeeds, but to have sales drop. That's okay, though, I'm just lucky to have people reading!

I'm going to start 2015 off on the right foot and remain positive. Cause that's all you can do, right?

Now, it's January 3rd and I'm already feeling good about this year. I'm changing my cover for Careful What You Wish For. Don't get me wrong I LOVED my last cover. Aly did an amazing job on it. I just think it needed a slight upgrade. So, I have a 2.0 cover. It's BEAUTIFUL....wanna see? Be sure to come back to my page on Tuesday the 6th :) Yep, I'm a tease LOL!

What else do I have for you?? Hmmmm... OHHHH!! So, after many requests I am going to be writing the 'sequel' to Careful What You Wish For. You have spoken - wanting a story about Harley's possible kids... well it's coming, but I'm doing it a bit different. I know you wanted to see how she handled her 'real' kids. Well, I worked on it a few times, starting with her pregnant...that became redundant (I mean how many times can you write morning sickness and cravings... ugh). I started to relive my pregnancy moments and I couldn't do it that way.

I started writing her have a toddler, basically writing the story of MY daughter. I felt the eye twitching moments coming on more. My daughter is...well... she's a handful sometimes and I think your hair would turn gray just reading it. Thank goodness for hair color!

SOOO I decided to try a different approach. I'm writing it in the POV of Harley's daughter who is now in her early twenties. There will be some reappearing characters and it will be just as fun. I know its a HUGE jump in the timeline, but believe me - for your sanity and mine - I don't think you want her to have a toddler hahaha!

Well, I don't have much more of an update for you, it's been kinda quiet. But, again, it's only 3 days in - hopefully this is the year ;)  xoxox
