Happy Release Day, Hell and a Hard Place!

Today is a release day, which means it’s a day for celebration!

Hell and a Hard Place has a very special place in my heart, more so than any of my other books. When I think about this book, and the inspiration behind it, my heart breaks. Domestic abuse isn’t a fun topic and I don’t know about you, but I hear even less when it comes to the woman being the abuser. But it happens in real life and it happens in Hell and a Hard Place.

There’s so much more that I wish to write, but this is a day for celebrating and I can only say so much. Here’s a little more about Hell and a Hard Place:

What's a girl to do when she's in love with her best friend but she can't have him? Well, I pretend I'm not. I keep my best friend, FC, close and keep my life moving forward. I work. I date. I see my therapist for my mental health issues. But everything always leads back to FC, no matter what I do. The distance between us, FC's secrets, and our own relationships keep us apart while bringing us closer together.

I'm a guy with loads of problems. Where do I even begin? I'm an on-again off-again smoker. I'm an alcoholic. I have a best friend of twelve years who I can't live without, and I only recently met Idaline in person when she let me escape to her house one night. Oh, and did I mention I have an abusive girlfriend? That every day winds up being worse than that last? I'm stuck between hell and a hard place with the dimmest of lights at the end of the tunnel. And that light might not even be there tomorrow. Because things will get worse before they get better.

I’ll be baking cinnamon sugar pecans to celebrate, and don’t forget, the sequel releases next month!

Happy Birthday, Book Birthday, & Release Day!

There is a TON to celebrate today! Let's start with me! ;) 

Today is my birthday! I'm celebrating tomorrow by going to the Penguins/Hurricanes game in Raleigh (thanks to my lovely Mom)! I may also venture out for a banana split blizzard at some point.

Next exciting thing about today is that it's Bending Under Pressure's book birthday. It released on this day last year! If you haven't read this Young Adult Romance, you should check it out. :)

Even crazier is that today my 15th solo releases! Say, what?! As if we needed another reason to celebrate!

And then, the most exciting news of the day is that MARCO IS HERE! 


I am unbelievably THRILLED that this book has finally released. I hope y'all love (or at least like) Marc. He's my new favorite at this point. He's definitely my favorite Rebel so far. He's just awesome, and so is Elizabeth.

Check out a ton of teasers on Pinterest, read the first five chapters, or buy the book and dive in already. :)

Y'all should celebrate with me by treating yourself to a book or a tasty dessert! Have a lovely day and happy reading!

Marc Polinski is known for having fun, always smiling, and being a third wheel for his friends, Noah and Meredith. A rare one night stand at a Halloween party and running into the woman again sets Marc on a path of no return. He can’t walk away from her, even if he wanted to, and he absolutely doesn’t want to do that.

Elizabeth Boyd hasn’t dated in a long time and if it wasn’t for her sister-in-law, she wouldn’t have been pushed toward the seemingly bad idea of Marc Polinski. She’s not sure she wants to date, but she can’t seem to turn Marc down either. Little by little, she lets Marc wiggle past all of her defenses.

Their relationship is rocky from the start, and with both of them having demons and secrets, things between them are a struggle. Will they be able to overcome their pasts, let each other in, and start building a life together or will they find they were doomed from the start?

Don't Miss My Newsletters!

As you know, 2014 brought big changes to my monthly newsletter. I've made another little tweak that I want to tell you about, and I'm going to throw in another reason why you don't want to miss my newsletters! I'm telling you, you are going to want to sign up for them!

Aside from the already awesome perks you receive by subscribing, here is the new change:

In addition to the monthly email on the first of every month, you can elect to receive an email on release days. This way, you can receive all the information about the new book on the day of publication instead of waiting for the next monthly email.

And that's not all!

Subscribers who wish to receive release day emails will be entered into a giveaway. One lucky person will win a swag pack for that new release! And there may just be a signed paperback included. ;) 

But wait! There's more!

You are going to want to sign up before the May newsletter goes out. Why? Well, there's a little book I have releasing in June called You Before Me. Heard of it? Great! I may be sharing the cover and the first chapter with subscribers in the next newsletter. I'll be sharing those next month here on the blog, but not until late May. So if you want to get it first, better sign up!

One last thing!

Because I'll be posting the first chapter here as well, only subscribers will get to read the second chapter of You Before Me before the release. And that leaves only one last infomercial thing to say...

What are you waiting for?! 

See all the perks here and sign up for my monthly newsletter here

P.S. Be on the lookout tomorrow for a new and hilarious hockey commercial.

It's Here! Our Happily Ever After Has Released!

This family of characters have done wonders for me. I love them dearly. They have helped me through tough times in my life and it's made me so happy to give them their happily ever after.

Again, I am so thankful for each of you and I hope that you enjoy Our Happily Ever After.

Happy Release Day!

I'm happy to announce the release of my first coauthored book! Mary Smith and I are very excited about this book and we're thrilled that it's releasing today. Be sure to grab a copy over on Amazon

Levi Carr is captain of the Roxboro University Lions hockey team. His rival is James Wayne University and their captain, Trevor McCarthy. After an incident in high school and his mother’s death, Levi does whatever he can to make McCarthy’s life a little harder. When leaving the rivaling campus one night, Levi meets one person who can unknowingly help him mess with McCarthy.

My one job in this is to mess with McCarthy’s head and all it has done is mess with mine.

Presley McCarthy lives in the shadow of her twin brother, Trevor. After being separated when their parents divorced, all Presley heard about was Levi Carr being a bully to Trevor. Now in college, Presley is trying to be her own person, but when she meets Levi Carr, it all changes. But will the changes be good or bad?

He is nothing like my brother described. Maybe I’ve been wrong all along.

It's Release Day!!

Hey y'all! I hope everyone had a great weekend. I know I did in Virginia. (Gas is $2.87 at one place!) I just got home, so that's why this is posting so late in the day.

Anyway, the news you've all been waiting to hear. Always has released! Right now, it's only available on Kindle. You can grab your copy here
Thanks to each and every one of you who has been patient with Jake and Emily's return. It's been a long year, but they are back! I've already started working on the next one and a good little portion of it is already done. If all goes well, I'm hoping to finish up the series by the end of 2014. 

I have a ton of other projects that I'm really excited to start, but I want to finish up their story first. There are some other books (besides theirs) that will be releasing over the course of the next year. The only others that I currently have planned and announced is the coauthored books, The Penalty Kill Trilogy. You can add the first book to your Goodreads here
Again, thank you for supporting me because you make a day like today so special and mean so much. I hope you enjoy the fourth installment! 

I'll leave by asking a favor. If you read Always, please leave a review on Amazon/Goodreads. It really means a lot and I love hearing what you think about my books! 

Have a great day, y'all!
