June Happenings

Hello My Lovely Readers❣
Hadn't meant to go so long between posts, but man. Things are moving! Of course I've been working away diligently on book 3--it's all there, outlined in my head in vivid detail. Just a matter of getting it out. What's the hold up? Well, Lol. Two new fur babies, a PT job that's been closer to FT these last couple months, and then taking care of the business end of things while getting Askara into audiobook (coming soon).

The pups' arrival also made me realize we really needed to finish our back porch. It's the main entrance/exit to our house, and all I can say is, Hallelujah! My home project of almost 2 years will finally be done. *Carpet goes in this week, so happy* But yeah. It's a small three-season room which I completely gutted and primed, painted, re-screened; you name it.  And then this past Wednesday I was able to cash in on what I consider my reward for all that hard labour, as I spent half the day at A.C. Moore picking …

March Update, and "Worlds" Teaser

I had originally intended this post to be entitled "February News". As you can see, I got a bit behind 😏 But Chapter One of "Worlds" is now up! (you'll find it on the landing page, under the "Coming Soon" tab).

Phew. I'm actually further into the story writing-wise, but when I went back it needed a lot more work than I thought. I realized I'm introduing whole new characters here, with new perspectives and hopefully different vibes so the writing needed to reflect that. There was also a lot this first chapter had to cover, as I think you'll find out.

In other news, work with my PT job has recently picked up; not that I'm complaining. A writing turtle like me needs that side hustle to swing the bills as it turns out. But that does mean I'm quite a bit behind where I planned to be, so I'll be sure to keep you all posted with updates and whatnot.

Thank you so much, you guys😊 I hope you enjoy!

P.S. Think Spring!!🌷

Giveaway Goodies :D

Happy 2019!! πŸŽ‰πŸ’–
I hope the New Year is treating everyone well?

I did promise to post a pic of the upcoming giveaway here so, Tada! *cue angelic singing* 😍 Seriously though, the colors are gorgeous and pens turned out even better than I expected πŸ˜€

I'll be picking winners randomly from my mailing list this Wed Jan 30th so be sure to check your emails (Subject: Link to JM Winner). *I know I had originally said the 28th but one shipment was a tad behind*

There's still time to join for a chance, if you're interested. Just click on the red 'Linked to JM' tab @ the top of this landing page.😊

If I get a lot of comments, I'll host again in Feb or thereabouts for another opportunity. But there will definitely be a chance at some more swag on my FB Page next month. As well as another Earth 99c promo.

Hugs, and enjoy your weekπŸ˜‰
Oh! And I added "free e-copy of "Worlds" upon release and/or pen" as a choice for this/future giveaways.

Oops ...Let's try this again

*Update 12/27/18*

...Okay, I have to laugh πŸ˜‚ Got a text from hubbs for the second time this week telling me Askara is still $2.99 despite a promised 99c promo (27th-29th). And damn it, I DID schedule it, I swear! But there's a back story here: A couple weeks ago Askara received the honor of being chosen for Prime Reading, in which a book is given away for free for 3 months to Amazon Prime members as an enticement to join Kindle Unlimited.

To be clear, I was beyond thrilledπŸ˜€πŸ˜ Because it can drastically increase author visibility, but as part of the deal, you can't offer the book in any other promotion during that time (Kindle countdown included) and I didn't see an email from Zon with a start date so I just assumed we were still OK to squeeze in one last Countdown deal. Well...just looked @ Askara's Amazon page and, behold!

Therefore, if you enroll in Prime Reading, Askara is now free and if for some reason that's not an option, please comment below in the next …

Upcoming Promos and Giveaway!

First off, the print for Earth is finally up! *Yay* As a reminder: Askara will be 99c Dec 23rd through the 25th πŸ™‚ And as promised, Earth will promo for 99c Saturday Dec 29th to Tues Jan 1st! For those wanting to read the revision, this is a great opportunity I thinkπŸ’—  Otherwise, check to make sure your e-version has a Table of Contents--that's how you'll know you have the update. I will be hosting a major giveaway of signed prints (mostly Earth, but some Askara as well) along with matching book buttons and pens soon. So if you haven't joined my Mailing List and you'd like a chance to win, just click on the "Linked to JM" tab/page to sign up. *Winners are chosen at random and notified via email* I'm thinking around 15 peeps for this first round of giveaways? Will post pics of the spoils as soon as they're set to go, as well as the drawing date. I thought pens would be really cool but I definitely plan more giveaways in 2019πŸ˜ƒπŸ€— So don't hesitate …

What's Next?

Hello EveryoneπŸ˜πŸ’—
Okay, so it's been a while. What have I been up to? Well, I did take a bit of a break. We went on vacay down south to see family (such a great time). Whenever I visit the Smokies I never want to come back, and now I have hubby wishing there was work for him there to justify the move πŸ˜„. I mean, come on. Look at that view!!

But what about book stuff?? Yes. I've been quiet on that front too because 1) I wanted to wait until I finished to say anything and 2) I don't like to beat a dead horse. More on that later...

First, the excting news: I've decided to skip the one-off I was planning and go right into Mina and Jadar's story (YAY), of which I am still toying with the title. But I've already started developing things between these two, and can I say? I am SO excited for this book :D Without giving too much away, big questions are answered and things go galactic *eyebrow wag* There will be snippets/appearances from Tori and Aderus too, for those …

*Earth Update/Addendum*

Hello everyoneπŸ‘‹πŸ’•

For those that follow me on Facebook , this post is probably going to be word for word...

Before I come clean, I want to say I've just posted a significant update to Earth. The main story line has not changed, but you'll notice it does read a little different (much better) and the biggest change is a 2-3 chapter addendum at the end. Important questions are answered, there's a really satisfying chapter with Tori & Aderus (I think) and a great lead into book 3 (Mina & Jadar's story).
*It should update automatically on Kindle but if not, go to More and Book Updates.

Yes, I did go dark this past week while trying to get out something I feel really good about. And I want to thank everyone SO much for your support and feedback. This actually started as just an addendum. But when I started reading the version of Earth I released last Friday, I wasn't proud. I hope you won't crucify me for that statement and all I can say is, I'm someone…
