If you’re a reader who got to know Chloe, Scott and Nate in Book One of the For Her series. Then you will probably remember a few other characters like Livvy, Hope, and Josh. November 4th marks the release of book two in this series, Live for Her. For a limited time you can get book one for only .99 cents so if you want to catch up, now’s the time. If you’re all ready up and anxiously waiting on Live for Her like me, then get ready, because it’s coming!

Happy Release Day Break Me!

It’s release day round two and I can barely contain my giddy. I have been waiting to get this book out for a couple of months and to finally see it for sale is almost surreal. I loved everything about writing Gemma and Abe. I loved them and their crazy family and friends so much, as a matter of fact, that I couldn’t stop and am in the process of writing Kate, Gemma’s younger sister’s book. Please check out Break Me. Give this group of friends and their summer island getaway a chance. I promise you won’t regret it.

Break Me –
Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000447_00067]

Gemma Andrews doesn’t trust men.

She’s been left with a bitter taste in her mouth after her father left her mother while she was still pregnant, for another woman, and started a whole new perfect family. Gemma doesn’t feel like she belongs with her father’s family—with her family—and has done everything she can to push them all away.

One summer, her last summer stuck with these people, is about to change all of that.

Abe North, the hunky night guard she meets by chance, breaks down Gemma’s carefully built cinderblock walls, and shows her what she’s been missing out on. He helps her to reconnect with the brother and sister she has kept at a safe distance all these years. In the end, maybe, just maybe, Abe can show Gemma that all men aren’t bad and that he’ll be the one who’ll be there for her.

But is Gemma ready to accept love?

Or is she too broken?

A Lot is Happening!

COMING SOON

I have been missing for a little bit and I’m so sorry! But, good news is that I HAVE UPDATES!

For starters, we did the photo shoot for Break Me. It was so amazing I can’t even describe. My photographer ended up with way too many pictures and it was complete torture to narrow them down for the cover and SWAG. Don’t believe me? What do you think that gem is at the top of this blog post!?!  I’m going to force myself not to look at them anymore for fear of regretting every decision I made. They are all so incredible.

I have also completed my first draft of Live for Her, book two in the For Her series. This is a stand-alone novel but it helps to read book one, of course. I am loving writing Olivia. There is so much more to her than the bubbly, outgoing sister we met in Fight for Her. She’s human, after all. This probably has another week of edits and then off to betas it will go!

And, perhaps most exciting for the Fangirl in me, I have been added as a signing author to an event in Houston that will take place in November. Signing is pretty cool, sure, but what’s better is that the headliner is Jay Crownover. Jay – Freaking – Crownover! Affectionately named by me, obviously. Other signers include Monica Murhpy, Jessica Sorensen, and Jennifer L Armentrout!

Cover Shoot Number 2!

I can’t believe this but I am actually going to be shooting my second cover on Saturday. Well, when I say that, let’s be honest. My amazing cover designer, Emily, will be shooting it as I stand to the side and yell, ‘kiss her’ or ‘gaze longingly’ like I know what I’m doing. Now, let me get this out of the way first, this shoot IS NOT for book two in the For Her Series. Sorry to those of you who are ready to know what happens to our lonely suitor. This is actually the shoot for the first book in a fun summertime series I have been working on as I panic over the release of Fight for Her. The book will be for a New Adult audience and will have more mature content. You have been warned.

 
Tentatively titled, Break Me, this book is set in Emerald Isle, North Carolina. I am in love with the characters in this book. They are all recent high school grads about to embark on the next phase of life. I love to take a character through this growth process. We tend to think we have it all figured out when we are 18 years old. It doesn’t take most of us long to figure out we have no freaking clue.

 
For this shoot my female model, Laura, was an easy pick. She if absolutely gorgeous, as you can see from the picture. This will essentially be a couple photo shoot since her boyfriend is portraying the male lead in the book. They are adorable together and I can’t wait to see what we can come up with Saturday. I’ll try to post some teasers as we get them. Wish us luck!

Happy One Week Birthday, Fight for Her

Fight for Her has officially been out one week. It’s surreal. It seems like I waited forever to have it out and now it’s like old news. Okay, maybe not old news but I am starting to move on with the next project on my list.

I am currently focused on a final read-through of my next book which is a New Adult Summer Series. I also have a photo shoot scheduled with my amazing cover designer for March 22. AND I am still working on book 2 in the For Her Series. I can’t wait to show you what happens to our poor, rejected suitor from book 1. As I have told a couple disappointed fans, I promise he will be taken care of. You can’t force someone to be with the girl that isn’t their soul mate. It would be just wrong.

Keep an eye out. I’m hoping to start posting teasers next week!
