Emerging From the Editing Cave and Sharing News

What happened...

So I got a lot done in the last couple weeks. First off, I finished the monster-expansion project on HIS ROADIE, my first heavy metal romance romance novel.

So please, cross your fingers for me and join me in hoping that the interested publisher picks it up!

Second, I also finished polishing up IRONIC SACRIFICE, book 2 in my urban fantasy romance series, "Brides of Prophecy." I really think this is my best work, but we'll wait for my next batch of beta readers to knock me down a peg and make it even better.

Third, WRENCHING FATE just got its first review up on Amazon and Goodreads and not only was it a raving, five star review, it was from someone I don't know, so they were definitely serious!!! This made my day.

Here's the link!

I also purchased the Domain for my editing service, GRAMMAR SMITH EDITING. The Website is under construction, but if you want to know my rates, send me an email.

What's going to happen...

ARCs will be arriving in a couple weeks for my 2nd historical paranormal romance, ONE BITE PER NIGHT!!! I can't Freakin' wait!!!

I'll be putting up my website for my editing service.

I'll be revising Book 3, BITE AT FIRST SIGHT before passing it on to madam editor.

I was invited to submit a short story to an anthology with a heavy metal theme. Well, it just so happens that I have one! A few years back I wrote a short story about a teenage metal band in a haunted church and it took first place in the Idaho Writer's League's annual contest. So I'm gonna polish it up and make it more metal and see how that goes. The deadline's not until November, so I have lots of room to play.

I'll be starting Book 3 in my Brides of Prophecy series. So far, I don't have a title for that.

So as you can see, Spring is kicking off hella busy!

Recap of my Radio Appearance

So I survived my first time being on the radio. I stuttered and sounded muffled often, but Bennet was very nice and we had fun discussing horror films, cooking, and of course, vampires. He wants to have me back in August after ONE BITE PER NIGHT releases. And from last night's experience, I learned something that I have to work on: I REALLY suck at talking about my books.

However, we also have a plan to do a horror movie chat near Halloween and the main problem with that will be getting me to shut up. :)

If you want to hear my utter and complete dork-ishness, you can listen to the show Here.

Holy Wow! My first radio show!


Despite the fact that I think I sound like a chipmunk on meth, I've agreed to make my first radio appearance on Bennet Pomerantz's show, ANYTHING GOES. I will be on at 11pm Eastern Time, which is 8pm Pacific, 9pm. Mountain, and 10pm Central. Damn, timezones are a pain in the ass. Anyway I have no idea what we'll be talking about and I am nervous as hell, so please feel free t provide moral support by listening in.

Here's the Link!
This is gonna be exciting!

Off in my Writerly Cave so here's some metal

I'm taking a brief hiatus from blogging to focus on revising my heavy metal romance, HIS ROADIE.

I hope to check back in with everyone soon. For now, here's one of my favorite metal songs of all time,
