The Most Hectic Time of Year


Season’s greetings to all!!! Christmas Tree '12

As we all know, this is the season of giving and spreading of holiday cheer. I have been trying to get myself into the holiday spirit and I have to say that the kids are helping me a lot. Otherwise, I’m working on my next novel… okay… a couple of contenders for my next novel. I’m back in the world crafting mode. I should be done soon. I’ll know by the time I get to my toddler chapters (3-5).

Anyway! I have awesome news!!! Not only did I release Precarious Possessions on Kindle, but it’s now also in here in Print!!!

So to say that I’m excited is a minor understatement.

And now that I have updated you all on what I have been working on, I wanted to share with you what’s gonna be happening in the next few weeks. Of course I know Christmas and New Year’s Day are happening. I’m going to have a Christmas morning filled with chaos and anarchy (I have 3 kids living with me, remember LOL) and I think I’m gonna spend my New Year’s Eve with a few friends quietly ringing in 2013. Please feel free to drop a comment and share how you’re spending your holiday 🙂

See you soon!!!

That’s right ladies and gents!!! Precarious Possessions is available now on the Kindle!!! I am beyond excited. As most of you know, this is my third novel. The second in the Maxwell Investigations series. This is Madison and Troy’s novel, and as a friend of mine said, you get to find out what happened with the puppies.

I’ll confess, I wasn’t sure how this one was going to go. When I first started writing and I decided I was going to try a series, I wanted them to be able to stand alone. Yeah, well, my writing style doesn’t allow that. So I started writing, and I give to you all, just in time for the Christmas holiday!!!!


Precarious Possessions, Book 2 of Maxwell Investigations



And just in case you haven’t picked up Book 1….


Maxwell Investigations Book 1

I don’t know how busy I’ll be in the next few weeks, so I’ll say this now… HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!!! And I’ll see you all soon!

“There are few things that can be fixed with liberal application of duct tape.”

Okay, I forgot exactly WHO said that, but it just felt like it was needed. After yesterday’s post I talked with Tia, and Precarious Possessions will be ready for release NEXT TUESDAY!!! 12/11/2012!!! 

That’s right!! After so long, Madison and Troy’s story will be available for the Kindle (Nook will be released shortly after).

I am SO excited!!!!! For those of you that have just started following the blog and don’t really know what I’m talking about, here’s the blurb:

For the past 4 years, full moons have always bothered Madison Maxwell. As the unclaimed Mate to a Werewolf, she’s been trying to find a way to adjust to being a single mother, and mentor.

Once Troy Davenport discovered he was the son of a powerful Alpha wolf, he was sent to train in California. For 4 years his thoughts all revolved around the last woman he had a quick fling with…


Though it’s said that time heals all wounds, can Madison and Troy come together for the sake of their sons, as well as stand up to what fate has in store for them?

I’m debating how I’m going to celebrate. If you have any ideas, let me know! 🙂

See ya Next Tuesday!!!!

Holiday Thoughts and Chaos….


Tis December!!!! We all know what that means!!!

Holiday cooking, baking, decorating… mad dashes to various stores while we try to pick up gifts for the people we all love… movie after movie of how romance is found during the holiday season, the Mayan end-date, the zombie apocalypse, Christmas cards and Holiday lights, music that will haunt us every day until January 1st….

Don’t you just love it??? 😀

I have to confess, after Halloween, Christmas is my next favorite holiday. I’m gonna be decorating the tree this weekend, and I’m almost done with my shopping (this will NEVER happen again!!) so I’m left with some kinda-bad news, and some GREAT news.

I’ll start with the kinda-bad stuff. I was working on a new story line. I was getting really far with it. I was over a third of the way through the first novel in this story line… and I read a book that was part of a series that is being published kinda far apart… and I saw too many similarities.

Now I want to be clear (I was accused of this before and I am HIGHLY sensitive about it), I never copied what was in this other series. It was just that in reading it, there were entirely too many similarities for my own personal tastes. I would never want anyone to come up to me, or write a review saying that my work was a knock off. So, it’s back to the drawing board with that one story line.

As for the GREAT news…

I am within WEEKS of releasing Precarious Possessions, Book 2 of the Maxwell Investigations series! 🙂

As you all know, this has been a labor of love for me and I am super excited that Madison and Troy’s book will be able out soon. As for the EXACT DAY, I’m trying to decide between the 11th and the 18th. But that all depends on if I have any formatting issues and what else I want to include in the novel. But as with everything else, I’ll keep you all posted!

And that’s all for the moment! Thanks for swinging by!!!
