If you’ve read a book recently (which, I’m assuming you have if you’re interested in this post), then you’ve inevitably noticed that in the back of most books, the author will ask you to write an honest review on the website where you purchased their book. It seems like a simple request, asking for a star-rating and a few sentences on how you felt about the work, but in reality, writing a review is challenging.

Special Announcement: What is #BN4?
For the last few weeks, you might have seen me referencing #BN4 on my author page or my personal account. You know I’ve been writing, you know I’m up to 25k now, but I haven’t muttered a peep about what I’m working on. Until now. I’m happy to finally announce the title of my current work in progress: Black Number Four. I have struggled with telling you about this project because I wanted to make sure I knew how to tell you. It was easy to tell you when I was working on Song Chaser because I just said, “Working […]
Calling All Fan Girls (and guys)
I’ve been getting quite a few emails lately asking me two questions that I think tie in together, so I’m hoping this post will help answer them. The first being “When are you coming to my area? I want to meet you!” and the second being “How can I keep up with everything you’re doing?” So first of all, I think it’s fan-flipping-tastic that y’all are so enthusiastic. Like wait… you want to meet me? :: pinches self :: Yep, this is real. Well, good news, chasers – you can catch me in quite a few places over the next […]
Song Chaser Birthday and Amazon Gift Cards Giveaway!
Holy smokes, y’all. Song Chaser is ALIVE! Err, I mean “live”. Whatever. Close enough. 😉 I can’t believe the day is finally here. It seems like I’ve been working on this story for like – ever. And now finally, I get to share it with y’all. Song Chaser has been a pretty emotional ride for me. Many don’t know that I actually didn’t plan on writing more than just one book. But, then I got sucked into this world, and now I’m afraid I’m sort of stuck here. Although, it’s not such a bad place to be stuck. […]

27 Experiences You’ve Inevitably Had As A Faithful Romance Reader
Ah, romance fans. We are a special kind of breed, aren’t we? We live for the heartache, the angst, and the smut (ESPECIALLY the smut). Here are 27 experiences you’ve inevitably had if you’re a romance genre fan. 1. You have 87 books sitting on your E-Reader, but you one-click anyway because you can’t resist a bad boy with tattoos. 2.

Hey, Hey, I Wanna Be A Rock Star
So, have you ever had one of those surreal moments where you’re like, “This can’t be real life.”? Well, I am currently having one. If you’re a fan of romance novels, then names like these will ring major bells in your head and probably bring a slew of book boyfriends to mind: Jamie McGuire K. Bromberg Cora Carmack L.B. Simmons Erika Ashby Rachel Van Dyken I mean honestly, if you read romance and at least one of those names doesn’t sound familiar to you, we have issues. […]
When I Read Reviews
So, I know you all see your favorite authors thanking your for your reviews of their work, but I don’t think you all truly understand how excited we get. For instance, let’s run through what happened to me this morning… Clock in at work, it’s 8:00AM on a Tuesday morning. So, this is me: I catch up on my work, and then I’m like, “Hm, I wonder how Tag Chaser is doing.” So, I skip on over to Amazon.com. I’m just scrolling around, viewing the sales rank and making sure the price is correct. But then, I SEE IT. A NEW REVIEW. […]
