But he changes his mind when he meets the woman in charge of the event.

Single mom, Crystal, is doing her best to offer her daughter the best Christmas ever. It’s their first in Kodiak’s Point, and she’s not about to let some vain jerk ruin it for her little girl.

Nothing to fear here

I’m at See Jane Publish today where, in honor of Halloween month, my fellow bloggers and I have been sharing what scares us most about publishing.


runner-on-markYou know that cliché in nightmares where you are desperately trying to run — lungs heaving and heart pounding in that cliché way — but you just can’t move a muscle?

(Yeah, no, I don’t have that nightmare either. I have the drowning cliché nightmare, the naked-in-public cliché nightmare, and the “can’t find my classroom and it’s test day” cliché nightmare, but not the stuck-in-molasses cliché nightmare. For the sake of this blog post, though, I’m going to suffer it. Why is it that even my clichés don’t make my writing any easier? Sheesh.)

Write faster, write more

One of my greatest fears in today’s publishing world is that I can’t write fast enough…

Ha. I was just trying to come up with some tags for this post and wrote “writer’s block” and then I looked at this image and look! There’s a block! This makes me wonder if we could make a writer’s block more like a runner’s block, something to ground you, something to push off against. Must contemplate…

See Jane Publish: my new group blog

See Jane Publish

This month, I’m joining a relaunched group blog called See Jane Publish. We are eight romance writers standing at various viewpoints along the publishing path, and we thought we’d pool our knowledge — and our questions! — and share our journey.

This month, in honor of Halloween, we’ll be talking about what scares us in the new world of publishing and what we’re doing to overcome our fears.

I’ll be posting on the fourth Thursday of every month. You can scroll down the page (to below the author bios on the right-hand side) to subscribe to the blog via email.

Teaser Tuesday!

Here’s the last tease from MATED BY MOONLIGHT. Now that the story is loose upon the world, I have to let it go and let it be what it will be. Good luck, werelings! Try not to bite anyone who doesn’t deserve it 😉
