Some Exciting Things Going ON!

So I was recently nominated by The Kindle Hub for Best Editor of 2014 and for Best Regency Romance of 2014 with my latest novel, Ice Angel! If you haven't voted yet, I would LOVE your vote!

My fabulous publishing house Crushing Hearts and Black Butterfly Publishing is also up for Best Publisher of 2014 as well, so be sure to give them a vote too! 

If you haven't visited it and liked it yet, I've updated my Webpage and I'd love to see you there! 

And last, but certainly not least, I'm in the market to find some beta readers... What is a beta reader, you ask?  It's a person who will read and give an honest review on your book for a copy of the book. Let me stress that I am looking for HONEST reviews. Even if you hate it. I want to know why, and what I might do to improve. Of course I love getting those great reviews too! They make my day! 
Right now I am looking for reviews on Ice Angel, but I have 14 books out now and all of them need new reviews to stay relevant, so in the new year I will be looking for people to read and review all or some of them. 

Of course if you are interested in reading some of my other novels, you can message me about them too. As I mentioned, I am always in need of new reviews!

2014 has been a big year!

So much has happened this year! I left my position at the school to take on a full time editing job with Crushing Hearts and Black Butterfly Publishing, which has been a fantastic move for me. I've released three novellas and I was part of two anthologies as well. I've edited a ton of books! So let's talk about some of these things!  
First up, the editing job... I love it! I get to read some fantastic new books by some amazing authors! Here are just a few of my favorites! 

The Skylar Wolfe Mysteries are full of Snark and fun, I adore them!

The Midnight Roads series by Skye Knizley is totally awesome! If you love Supernatural, this is a must read!

 The Red Sun Rises Series, I cannot say enough about this series! YA, coming of age goodness! Fresh and exciting take on the Vampire world. It is full of romance, love and life.

If you are going to read anything by Sarah Jayne Carr, start with Flavor of Regret, it's a brilliantly written short about life as a Grim Reaper, but once you are hooked on her, don't miss her fantastic Jack Rabbit 7 novels! They truly delight!

Catherine Stovall is one of my most favorite authors, and I just can't get enough of her writing! So if you are going to pick up any of hers, start with this one. It's her newest, a series of short stories and poems that are sure to get you hooked on her!

Linna Drehmel is sure to fascinate you with The Bee Keeper, one of many of my favorites by her! It's a beautiful short story that you are sure to love!

Gabriella Lapore's The Witches of the Glass Castle is a recent favorite of mine! It's a brilliantly written YA novel that will keep you enthralled from the beginning to the end! And be sure to pick up the sequel which is out this month!

If you LOVE Harry Potter, you are going to go wild for The Hunter Awakens by J.R. Roper! It is an absolutely brilliant YA Adventure Novel that you will want to read again and again!

Those are just a few of the novels that I have read and loved and possibly edited over the last year. You won't go wrong with any of them! 

Now on to the books I've published over the last year...

Last December I released The Secret, a Regency Novella for Christmas about an heiress on the run who finds love... 

The Rise of the Goddess Anthology was a lot of fun to write for, and it almost falls in line with my Goddess of Love series, almost. My story is called Goddess Touched and deals with the Roman Gods instead of the Greek like my GOL series.  There are a bunch of wonderful authors who contributed to this one and you are sure to find a story you will love!

The next anthology I was a part of is called A Taste of CHBB... I didn't actually have to write anything for it, as it's a collection of excerpts from different CHBB novels. My Soul Mates Scent is included in it. 

In August I released Undercover in Love... Book 2 of the Goddess of Love series. It was so much fun to write! The story is about an actress who goes into hiding and decides to give up her on screen life for a life in New Orleans... one of my favorite cities!

And last but certainly not least, on December 6th of 2014, I released my latest Regency novella, Ice Angel. A romance told mostly through letters written between the heroine and hero during Napoleon's 100 days before the battle of Waterloo. 

I wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! I will do my best to bring you more book-y goodness in the future! Love you all!
