Happy 5th Birthday Destiny's Revenge

September 2, 2011 My publishing dream was coming true.  Destiny's Revenge - the second book in my Destiny Series published. 

This was a huge accomplishment.  While I was editing Meeting Destiny - yes, it took a full year to edit, I began writing the second book in the series.  I was writing Destiny's Revenge while I was editing Meeting Destiny.  Eventually I was editing both books at the same time.  The result?  The two books published just days apart.  Crazy, right?

August 31 birthed Meeting Destiny and just two short days later Destiny's Revenge was ready for the world, too.

It sort of looked like I was a writing machine - but the truth is I didn't know where to put commas, semi colons, colons, dashes, hyphens, etc.  Luckily, my extremely talented editor, Linda Brant, patiently edited and re-edited both books.  Five years later, I have a vague idea of which punctuation mark goes where - and we are now able to edit stories in about five edits rather than fifteen.  LOL!

Thank you to all of you who found my Destiny Series and encouraged me to keep on my writing path.  Without your support, I'm certain I wouldn't have published my tenth novel this year.  For those of you who are more familiar with my Centaur or Brewer Brothers series - I'd love for you to check out my earlier work, too!

Happy Reading!

Happy Birthday Meeting Destiny!

That's right!  Five years ago today, Meeting Destiny Published!  Where has the time gone? 

People always ask me if I had always planned to be an author.  The truth is, no.  It was something on my bucket list.  I had always been a vicarious reader, and I was in awe of those who wrote books.  I wondered if I could actually write a novel.

Out of the blue one evening after my boys had gone to bed, I started writing Meeting Destiny.  I had no intention of actually publishing it - I wrote the story just to see if I could actually write a novel.  When it was complete I let a friend read it; she encouraged me to try to get it published.  This is about the time independent publishing was really gaining steam.

After sending out a grand total of two query letters to agents in late 2010, and receiving exactly two nicely-written rejections I began scouring blog posts on "how-to" self publish.  In the beginning I really treated it like a hobby.  Afterall, I had a great day job that I loved (and still do).

According to Smashwords, Meeting Destiny was first published Jun 27, 2010, but I was learning "how to" publish in 2010 - the book itself actually published Aug 31, 2011 on Amazon and all other retail sites five years ago today. 

September 2011 someone sprinkled magic fairy dust on me and a stranger bought Meeting Destiny.  I say a "stranger" because it was the first sale that came from someone I didn't know.  A few days later a review popped up on Goodreads with a friend request from the reader who had read and reviewed Meeting Destiny.  I was BLOWN AWAY!  Charles Young was my very first fan and remains a close friend to this day.  You can find Charles here on his blog:

I think people come into our lives exactly when we need them the most.  Charles encouragement is why I now have ten novels published and not just one.  There were other authors along the way, too.  Shelly Crane, Amy Bartol, Michelle Leighton, Tiffany King, Charlotte Abel, SM Boyce, C Gockle, Christie Rich just to name a few.  All have been and continue to be heroes to me.

Thank you to all of you who have supported me over the last five years.  I hope to keep writing novels that make you read late into the night for many years to come.

All my love,

Flashback Friday: Adventures in Bookland

I can tell this is quickly going to become my favorite type of post to share.  As I sift through my archive of book bloggers / reviewers who have touched my heart there are many who stand out.

Michelle from Adventures in Bookland is one I want to tell you about today.  Before I jump right in, here is her blog's address.  Add it to your favorites, because she will NEVER steer you wrong and always has fantastic recommendations.

I know a few of you don't like to stalk blogs, that's okay.  Here is her Amazon review profile:

July 2016 she reviewed Shroud of Lies

I won't post all of her review links, but she also reviewed Fractured Karma (May 2015), His Frozen Heart (Oct 2014), Centaur Legacy (Feb 2015), Blood Debt (Dec 2014), etc, etc.  Do you see why I love this lady?

You can find her on twitter, too:

Please stop by and show this lady some love!  Michelle, if you read this - Thank you!!  I'm more grateful for your support than you could ever know.

Happy Reading,
