You Found Me, Beautiful Nightmares, and 13 Rounds

Thursday, March 21, 2013
Good Morning everyone!

So I know it has been forever since I've blogged and I'm so sorry that I've been so out of touch for a while.

I have some important updates for everyone regarding Beautiful Nightmares and 13 Rounds.

These two books seem to be the ones I get the most inquiries about and while I try to keep up with it all there are moments where I become highly overwhelmed and struggle a little bit to keep everyone in the loop and for that I'm truly sorry and am doing the best I can to work on that.

You know, when I first started writing I never expected there to be such an amazing response to my books. I wrote for me, because I love it, because being a writer is a huge part of who I am and something about myself that I can't and don't want to change. I didn't expect to gain such a devoted and passionate group of readers who love reading my books as much as I love writing them.

And for that, I'm eternally grateful.

There are moments, I'm not going to lie, where I feel too overwhelmed to continue on writing. But it's always the support from my fans that keeps me going. I am humbled and awed every day by the patience and support from my fans. I even cry from time to time when I get an uplifting message or good review lol. I can't say thank you enough. So, even if I fall off the wagon for a short time...I promise you I'll get right back up and dust myself off. I'm sorry for the delay again on a few of my books and I assure I am working on them.

As most of you know, I got a publishing deal for a few books...

Now for the first....

I do have a new novel releasing with Swoon Romance titled - You Found Me

This will be released in the Summer of 2013 and it is the first of my books to be published by Swoon.

It's up on Goodreads and you can add it here.

Now for Beautiful Nightmares... I do know for sure that this novel will be released in September of 2013. The publisher set the date and while I don't have the exact date, I know it will be released at the end of the month opposed to the beginning.

13 Rounds is one that I do not have a date for yet, but I promise as soon as I do, I'll let everyone know. Same with A Whisper To A Scream 2, and all of the other sequels.

Once again, thanks to everyone for their continued support and I hope you all have a wonderful day!

Beautiful Nightmares Teaser!!!!

Wednesday, December 26, 2012
Happy day after Christmas everyone!

So as most of you know Beautiful Nightmares is going up tonight and should be available for purchase sometime tomorrow!

So for all of you who have been patiently waiting...Thank you!

I'm so excited to share this teaser with you and I hope you enjoy it.

There are times where I think that the quiet solitude of darkness can be a comfort. It can cover you like a newly knitted quilt, swaddling you in a cocoon of serenity. It can banish the dark thoughts in your mind. Make you feel safe. Make you feel warm.
Now is not one of those times.
I wake with the soft caress of slumber still clouding my mind. The land of dreams beckons, threatening to pull me back into its’ realm. It’s like an annoying voice lingering in the darkened portions of my brain, a haunting echo that I can’t let go of. My eyes snap open. I refuse to let sleep consume me anymore.
My room is midnight black, minus the shimmering stars, and I squint, trying to get a clear picture of my surroundings. The opaque black is thick and overpowering, like a cement barrier of smog and it doesn’t matter how much time I give my eyes to adjust. I still can’t see a damn thing.
I whisper his name into the darkness, “Elijah.” Fanning my fingers out across the sheets to lace my fingers through his. “Elijah are you awake, love?”
I glide my fingers further along the soft cushioned mattress and shiver when the cold from the sheets seeps through my skin. “Elijah?”
Still no answer.
Panic begins to work its way through my body.
My heart thunders in my chest.
My pulse races.
Sweat trickles down my temples.
With force and quick reflexes, I rip my sheets from the bed and scream. “Elijah! Elijah, where are you?” My fingers once again brush across the cold, bare spot next to me and my screams escalate to shrieks. “Elijah! Elijah, where are you? Where did you go?”
The door to my room flings open. It lets out a loud bang as it crashes into the wall. A soft light filters into the room and all I see is white. White walls. White floors. White sheets. A young woman dressed from head to toe in a cotton periwinkle ensemble rushes toward me. All of her blonde hair is piled on top of her head in a bun.
“Where is he?” I cry, choking on a sob stuck in my throat. “Where is my Elijah?”
“Hush, now.” The young woman has a slick yet soothing voice. “You don’t need to worry about such things, Adelaide. You need your rest.” She eases me back into a lying down position and smoothes my hair back away from my face.
“Just tell me where he went,” I plead. “Please.”
This woman doesn’t understand how much I love Elijah. How he is like the sun on the horizon to me. Without him, it’s like gazing into the night sky without the stars and the moon. Empty and devoid of beauty and awe. “Can’t you please tell me where he went?” I ask, a hint of hopefulness in my voice.
“No,” she says flatly, pulling the sheets up over my chest.
“Why not?” I don’t understand this cruelty. This woman has to know where he is. She just has to. And how could she keep his whereabouts from me? Can’t she see his absence is tearing me apart?
“Because I don’t know.”

Have a great day everyone!!!

Beautiful Nightmares and 13 Rounds News!!!

Tuesday, December 11, 2012
So you've all been waiting for this...

Sadly, Beautiful Nightmares and 13 Rounds are not up.

Alas, I am only one person. I have three jobs and there isn't enough time in the day for me to stay on top of everything sometimes.

I got a little overwhelmed. I set unrealistic deadlines and I needed a break to preserve my own sanity trying to juggle everything. As most of you know, I write A LOT. Maybe a little too much. My books usually come out really close together and after thinking about this I decided that I will not release any of my future novels right on top of each other.

I needed to take a breather so I did. Now I'm back and feeling much better.

Beautiful Nightmares is my first priority right now. There were lots of things wrong. It wasn't just minor stuff. Paragraph's ended up missing, words were out of place, etc. I'm going to have an editor read through it just to be sure it's good as far as that goes and I'll say with certainty that it will be up by December 26,2012.

Once again I'm so, so, sorry for the delay. I know it's wrong to keep everyone waiting, but I had a lot going on at once and found myself unable to think clearly involving the release. I did not want to put a error-filled book just to please everyone. So I'm really and truly sorry for the delay.

13 Rounds and Yelling Out Loud. I get a lot of messages regarding these books. 13 Rounds is the second book I'll be focusing on and I'll have that one out by the end of January. I'll post the definite date soon and Yelling Out Loud most likely won't be released until Feb or March.

I have learned that I need to focus on one book at a time so I don't drive myself crazy, so that is what I'm going to do.

I hope you all understand. Thank you so much for your passion, devotion, and for loving my books so much. I appreciate it fully and whole-heartedly and I know that I'd be nothing without you. And finally, once again, I'm sorry.

Happy Holidays!

For those of you who have been patiently waiting Beautiful Nightmares will be up in eBook format tomorrow night before midnight.

Again, I'd like to thank all of the readers for the amount of support they show to authors every day. You guys seriously fuel us and are part of the reason why we write.

I honestly can't thank you all enough.

My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century Winners and Beautiful Nightmare News!

Tuesday, October 16, 2012
Hello Readers!


I have a few things to announce today.

First, I asked Rachel Harris to pick the winners of the My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century Giveaway and here are the two winners she selected!

Caterina Torres and Mahlia Khan! Congrats ladies you'll be receiving an email soon.

Secondly, I have an announcement involving Beautiful Nightmares and sadly, most of you will be disappointed by it being that the release date is being moved back. This is out of my control. I do not have the final cover images yet and as most of you know the book is being released as a bundle paperback as well and I do not want to separate the releases of the paperback and eBook. So it will not be coming out until next Saturday....

However if you are waiting for the paperback... All three books will be included in the bundle, Insanity, White Walls, and Beautiful Nightmares along with the bonus scenes.

Honestly, this is my first bundle release for paperback so it has been a little overwhelming and I appreciate all of the support from the fans who wanted a copy of the paperback as well as the eBook.

Thank you so much.

Sociopath Diary News, .99 Awesome eBooks, Giveaways, and More!

Wednesday, September 26, 2012
Morning readers!

I hope everyone is having a fabulous week so far!

I've got some news to share with you.

Some you'll like...

Some I'm not so sure.

First things first...

There's a special going on for the AWESOME YA Paranormal Romance Spectral by Shannon Duffy. If you haven't had a chance to pick this book up yet, you should. It's a steal at .99 cents and an epic, spell-binding read!

Check it out here!

Also if you haven't had a chance to enter the My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century Giveaway please check out how to enter, here.

Now some news involving the Sociopath Diaries. Yelling Out Loud has been pushed back a few weeks. It will now be released in October. Honestly, I thought I could push it and have it out in September, but I couldn't. And plus, I don't want to rush it. And I don't want it to be sloppy. I know some of you will be disappointed by this, but trust me, it will be better in the long run if I don't rush this.

Finally. A lot of the fans of the asylum trilogy have been asking if the book is in fact going to be released in paperback and I'm excited to say that yes... it is. All of my novels that are trilogies will be released in bundles, meaning that they asylum trilogy will be three books in one when released in paperback. Like I said I intend on doing this with every book in my trilogies. And don't worry, the final book in the asylum trilogy is still on schedule. So you can without a doubt expect Beautiful Nightmares to be out on October 16, 2012.

Hope you all have a good rest of the week!
