Finding Claire Fletcher T-Shirt Fundraiser

November 22, 2014



I just wanted to say THANK YOU SO MUCH to everyone who participated in the Finding Claire Fletcher t-shirt fundraiser! As you may know, I am raising funds for a non-profit called Operation Underground Railroad (O.U.R.) whose goal is to stop child pornography and human trafficking. You can check them out here:

My campaign ended on 11/12. My goal was to sell 30 shirts and I sold 35 so YOU GUYS ARE TOTALLY AWESOME!!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! (Yes, multiple exclamation points.)


Many people have asked me if they can still get shirts. As I understand it, if Teespring receives 15 reservations for shirts, they'll reopen the campaign and bring the shirts back. So if you're interested, you can go to the link below, reserve a shirt and hope that 14 other people do too. :)

I'd love to see O.U.R. get more money! But if it doesn't work out, I am thrilled with what we've accomplished! Again, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for your support!

 

Predictability v. Expectations

November 14, 2014

So I read this book recently where the killer turns out to be . . . well, the killer. What I mean by that is the main character is convinced that the person who was convicted of killing her loved one is innocent and that the real killer is still out there. So the book follows her along this odyssey--her fight to bring the "real" killer to justice but in the end, it turns out that they had the right guy all along. I thought this was brilliant although perhaps it just spoke to the part of me wh...

200

November 14, 2014

Today, Finding Claire Fletcher got its 200th five star review on Amazon.


That's right. My own little underdog novel that took me literally years to sell to a publisher now has 200 FIVE STAR reviews on Amazon. You can check out the lengthy Agent Rejection Pictorial here. 


Big Pub 1 to Agent (11/5/10):

Thanks for the FINDING CLAIRE FLETCHER material. The real-life background is horrific, of course, but I'm not that sold on the novel itself.
Good luck with it!


Some writers might think, "So what? Big ...

Yay for Re-Release Day and Last Call for Finding Claire Fletcher T-shirts!

November 11, 2014



So tomorrow is the big day! VETERANS DAY! Yes, it really is and I hope that tomorrow you will say a prayer for all the servicemen and women who have sacrificed so much so that we can live in relative safety and have all sorts of freedoms, big and small. If you see a servicemember--any day of the year--walk up to them, shake their hand and thank them for their service. I do it all the time. I've done it at parades, just walking down the street, on the bus, in airports, in restaurants, in store...

So, Claire Fletcher, who is the protagonist of my first novel has a birthday today!

So Many Things!

October 6, 2014

I've been away so long! I apologize. This summer kicked my behind. I had a wee bit of a health scare which involved me having to get an MRI of my brain (everything is fine) and then a minor surgery (again, everything is also fine). 


Seriously, waiting for appointments to begin is an awesome time to write!
I think I got 3K done waiting for this MRI. 


The school year came so quickly, I've barely had time to process things, let alone blog about them. There are so many things I wanted to comment on ...

August 12, 2014


So I did a post earlier this year about all the amazing authors I know who had been nominated in the eFestival of Words Best of the Independent eBook Awards for 2014. In an awesome turn of events, all the authors I was rooting for made it to the finals this year in one or more of the categories they were nominated in, so I'm going to ask you to help an author out and go vote for these authors. I've read their books and loved them. I am very passionate about them so please, please, PLEASE take...

Post-Release Post #8: Fear of Disappointing Readers

July 6, 2014

Two of my most favorite, I-would-probably-pass-out-if-I-got-within-2-feet-of-them-and-sort-of-almost-did -when-I-met-one-of-them authors are Karin Slaughter and Dennis Lehane. This is well-documented.  I discovered Lehane in the last year, but I've been reading Karin Slaughter's books for over a decade. Both writers have a series based on a specific set of characters. I'm a dedicated, passionate fan of their work.





And yet, they've both written one book I felt disappointed by.


I won't say which ...

Another One of My Favorite Books is OUT NOW!

June 5, 2014

I promise this blog is not turning into a promo site. The problem is that I know so many amazing writers who keep churning out these amazing books. It's a heavy cross to bear (*winks, smiles*). So the lovely, kind, funny, crazy-talented Dana Mason has just released the third and final book in her Embrace Series. Now look, by now you guys should know I don't really do romance. I do give a lot of romance books a chance each year but usually don't make it through any of them. Dana Mason's books ...
