A Partnership

The Universe has an interesting way of showing you direction sometimes. As a now happily independent author I am always thinking of ways to get books into the hands of readers. With the ever changing face of publishing these days, I've noticed a few trends that helps authors do this. One of them is cross promoting. A few weeks ago I started looking at books that were in the same genre as mine. My thinking was that it would be great to have a support system and to build the alliance with another author(s).

As this train of thought was going through my head, life got busy as it always does and I let the idea go for a bit. However, The Universe must have liked the idea because a few days after I had started thinking about it I received an e-mail from another author who had the same idea and was wanting to do some cross promotion with me.

As we started trading e-mails and I read his book (which is an International bestseller and is currently on the top 15 Kindle list), we learned a few things about each other. One is we live a mile apart--and we live in the middle of nowhere. Not many out where we live. He also has four dogs and two horses! We decided to meet and talk shop.

It didn't take long for either of us to realize that two minds like ours (demented) could get together and write one heckuva dark and twisted thriller together.

I am pleased to announce that Andrew E. Kaufman my neighbor and partner in crime and I are going to be releasing a co-authored psychological thriller together.

Stay tuned as more announcements will be coming.

If you have not read Andrew's latest thriller (THE LION, THE LAMB, AND THE HUNTED, I suggest that you do. http://www.amazon.com/Lion-Lamb-Hunted-Psychological-ebook/dp/B006HWXKD4/ref=zg_bs_digital-text_15

Also, COVERT REICH  will be free for Kindle tomorrow and Sunday. If you like a little conspiracy with your suspense, give it a try. http://www.amazon.com/Covert-Reich-ebook/dp/B006BHWSJM/ref=pd_sim_kstore_3?ie=UTF8&m=AG56TWVU5XWC2

Good luck to both of you on the project. You're on to something.

I Need a Name for My Next Victim

So I have finally started breathing new energy into my writing career. Yes--I have been in a slump. I'll admit it. Life became insanely stressful and busy over this past year and instead of my usual 3 books a year, I have not written a manuscript for a year. Gulp--I said it--well sort of (I wrote it). Lucky for me, I did have some new books released into the world, (Patron and Happy Hour) but now it's time to get back to business.

My problem as a writer has always been that I have a bazillion ideas running through my head at any given time, and I want to write them ALL right at that moment. That becomes overwhelming because let's face it, it's an impossible task. Then, I lose my focus in the haze of overwhelm and I top it off with outside stress from just plain old life, and then all I want to do is go spend time with my horses because 1. they don't talk back., 2. they are very forgiving souls, 3. they don't judge. In other words, they are perfect for stress re…

Superpowers

I love talking to my son. He's so... so.... interesting. And opinionated.

Kid: Mommy, if you could have any superpower at all, what would it be?

Me (without missing a beat): My power would be to magically clean the house. Particularly the dishes.

The kid shoots me death ray looks. 


Me (scurrying to make up for this hideously stupid remark): I wish I could fly.

Kid (looking pointedly at me and speaking rather snidely): I would have the power to teleport to another dimension.

Shit. The kid totally out-cooled me and he knows it.

Next time I'll do better. I promise.









A Ghost Story

I love a good ghost story and being that it's Halloween I figured I'd tell you my own personal ghost story. Believe it or not, I have a knack for attracting the spirits beyond. It's kind of a joke with my family now because it's been going on since I was a kid. I know that you're thinking I am a total whackadoo and I am totally okay with that, because I know what I know and trust me there are such things as ghosts.
Just the other day when I stopped by to see my dad he said to me, "You brought the poltergeist back with you. I can't find a damn thing around here." He refers to "her" as the poltergeist--this is from a man who never ever would have believed in ghosts in a million years until he lived in the house that I grew up in. I refer to her as the little pixie because she never does anything mean. She's more of a prankster--moving shoes around (I know you're thinking--no you do that and just forget because you're a human. No--I …
