Checking In

Hola, peeps.  Just wanted to check in and let you know what’s going on in Soapboxville!  I am currently up to my ears in writing projects–I’m finishing up my second novel, Fairville, which is an old-fashioned ghost story set in a small Louisiana town.  I’m also working on a non-fiction project to submit to Hay House Books upcoming Non-Fiction Book contest!  Added to my pro-blogging and 40 hours a week at The Research Lab (formerly known as The Day Job), I’m seeing a significant increase in claims on my time.

I haven’t abandoned this blog–I hope you are all doing well, and I look forward to getting back to you soon!



News & Announcements

Just wanted to post a quick note to let you know that I’ll be changing the focus of this blog slightly in the future. I have been pondering how I can bring my readers more value, and I think I have a really good plan. It’s in the works, and I’ll be posting more details soon. I’m really excited about this plan–keep watching this space!

Also, just a reminder that there are only 3 days left to order the Kindle version of All the Back Roads Home: Little Girl Lost at the special rate of $0.99!  The Print on Demand version will be available next week.

Insane Excitement!

Jennifer Ashley, one of my writing mentors and dear old friend, said she really liked my cover for All The Back Roads Home: Little Girl Lost. That makes me feel SO much better, since girlfriend is an expert in all this.  Here is the cover for the CreateSpace version.  I’ll probably just use the front for the e-book version. I’d really like to know what you think!


Big News: All the Back Roads Home

Inspired by Emily Anne Shaffer and her new e-book, I’ve decided to release my novel All the Back Roads Home as a two-part e-book!  I’m looking for a little help, though–mainly, a title for Part Two!  I’d love to hear some ideas.  So far, I’ve come up with the following titles–some good, some not so much.  Please, help me name this puppy!

  • All Roads Forward
  • Where the Road Leads
  • Any Road Forward
  • Where All Roads Lead

I’m sort of leading towards Where All Roads Lead, but I’d love any suggestions you have to make!  Please comment and let me know what you think.

Nothing Ventured, Nothing Gained

Contacted Balboa Press to learn more about self-publishing.  Stomach is in knots, especially since I don’t have a finished product.  On the other hand, making a start at something puts me ahead of 90% of the rest of the people.
