Deals on ALL of My Books
You read one of my books and fell in love. You must read more. All of them - twelve in total. And honestly, who could blame you? You are my #1 superfan!
If the above applies to you, then I'm happy to announce that you can find deals on my books through a couple of different places - typically Kobo and Smashwords! Here's what you can find, and where:
Smashwords - ALL of my ebooks are 50% off the regular price of $4.99 for the entire month of July

The cool thing about using Rakuten/Kobo is that no matter what ereader you have, they have the files for it. Use a Kindle? No problem. Read any of my ebooks using the Kobo app right on your phone. Learn more by visiting this page.
Here in Missouri, summer has officially made its appearance. Sunny, muggy days with regular storms at night signal that it is still somewhat spring. Spring had a late appearance, far too late of an appearance in my mind, and with it usually comes strong thunderstorms and tornadic activity.
That said, our garden will soon explode with daylilies galore.
When we first moved here in 2013, I had a massive yard to work with, and nothing but weeds we mowed short to give the appearance of grass. Daylilies, the orange ones found in ditches across the country, were cheap (often free) and reproduced easily, filling in the barren spots and providing a spot of green (and orange) as summer hit its apex and things began to dry up. I couldn't tell you how many we have, but they number in the thousands. In another week, it will be nothing but daylilies everywhere. The flowers are edible, by the way. Not the Asiatic daylilies, but the common ditch lilies are perfectly edible. I've stuffed them with cream cheese and salmon before. They were brought here to America by the Pilgrims as a food source.
With the temperatures soaring into the high 90s, however, I'll admit that I'm feeling less and less inclined by the minute to be outside. It's way too hot for me, so I guess that means it's time to start a new writing project!
Revving up the Writing Brain
I'll be honest, I've spent the past two months thinking of little else but my garden, house, and painting projects, not writing. It takes a hot minute for me to switch gears. That said, starting today (Tuesday, 6/14) I plan on diving into Broken Code, the third book in my romantic suspense series. Until I feel it click, until I drop into the zone, my goal is simply to write 500 words each day. That will get me started and the plot will begin to form around the shell of an outline I came up with.
What I'm Reading...
I'm actually in between books (gasp!). But not for long. I just picked up several books I can read on my Kindle app...
The Secrets We Keep by Kate Hewitt
The Retreat by Mark Edwards
Apocalypse Library (10 novels) by Iain Rob Wright
The Inmate by Frieda McFadden (p.s. just started reading this last night and it is got me wanting to binge!)
