I've been wanting a satisfying twisty-thriller for ages. Turns out this one is close to home, set in my home town and written by a fellow north Texan.
Talking about our book is a brain-paralyzing prospect for a lot of writers. We know our book better than anyone, love it (most of the time), and yet we totally freak out when it comes time to tell someone about it. Why? Because we think too much.
You guys all know about BookBub, right? Because if you don't, you're missing out. Basically it's a site that lets you know when e-books go on sale—you know how sometimes a book will drop to .99 or so, but just for a day? Great for the author, great for the reader. But how do you… Continue reading Bargains that are bad for my budget (with a giveaway)

Her books keep me… Continue reading Friday Faves – The Twisted, The Pretty, and the Yummy

Especially when they knock you out, kidnap you, and force you to be their magical police dog. Devlin… Continue reading New Year, New Look for Spirit and Dust!
Coming Spring 2013...

That crazy.)You know what else is crazy? A crazy good read, that is?
