 Release Date: October 8, 2014

Designer: White Rabbit Designs and Creations

Piper wakes up in the hospital with no recollection of how she got there. Only fragmented memories surface – her boyfriend Jackson on the ground covered in blood, Piper standing over him, her hands slick and red.  Then she is told the awful truth: Jackson was killed the night she was injured, and she is the only witness.

If only she could remember what happened.

Piper searches through her memories, recalling her entire relationship with Jackson in order to piece together what happened. Meanwhile, as Jackson’s family is trying to make sense of the tragedy, they find his journal and begin reading through it to find answers.

As the chilling truth begins to unfold, Piper has to face the darkest secrets of her relationship with Jackson and the part she played in his murder.

Blurb:

Adam Stewart is every girl’s fantasy – captain of the football team, smart, funny, hot. I’ve had a crush on him for years but he never noticed me. Until now.

Dating Adam is a dream come true. I should be happy about it, but it’s hard because my best friend Cruz is acting strange. Almost like he’s jealous. But that can’t be. Can it?

Cruz and I have been inseparable since we were kids. He’s always been like a brother to me. But lately things have changed. He’s different, and I’m starting to see him in a new light. Our relationship is evolving in a way I never thought possible. I don’t want to lose him, but am I willing to give up Adam for him?

The Summer We Fell

My kids went back to school yesterday and it was bittersweet for me. One the one hand, it’s been so nice to work without interruption. On the other hand, it’s too quiet and at times I miss them.

But I am excited about what will be happening with my books the next couple of months. First off, THE SUMMER WE FELL is releasing a week from today! If you want to hold on to a little more summer, this is the book for you!

And after that I will be releasing a Young Adult romantic suspense entitled CUTS RUN DEEP. It should release beginning of October.

So be on the lookout for these releases.

Happy Reading!thesummerwefell


It’s time to come clean…

Recently it’s come to my attention that there is a lot of confusion regarding my books. I’ve had some humorous discussions with people regarding my covers and how “romantic” they are. I’ve also had some conversations where it’s been clear that a lot of people assume all my books are teen fiction similar to my first series. In all these encounters I’ve realized that while it’s been fun to try my hand at many different genres it might cause a bit of confusion for my readers.

I totally get that not all my readers want to read young adult fiction. That’s actually why I’ve released many adult titles as well. And even though my first series was Christian, my other titles are all mainstream. Also, I know that not everyone is into romance, so I have some mystery/suspense books too. The problem is that I don’t think most people realize this. I think when most readers see my newest release they automatically assume it’s a teen romance. So, I’ve decided to break all my books down by category to cancel out all the confusion and clear the air. So, if you’re interested in reading my books this might be a helpful tool in deciding which one.

We will start with my newest releases BREAK THROUGH and BREAK FREE, both of which are ADULT ROMANTIC SUSPENSE:

If you like suspense but aren’t a big romance fan, I do have one title for you- ENGRAVED. It’s an ADULT MYSTERY/SUSPENSE:

ENGRAVEDv2_FINAL_frontpreview01

STAR STRUCK, LOVE STRUCK and FALLING TO PIECES are all NEW ADULT CONTEMPORARY ROMANCES, meaning the characters are all in their twenties. So this is a good choice for older teens, young adults and adults alike:

HEAD ABOVE WATER is a NEW ADULT ROMANTIC SUSPENSE:

I have two sweet TEEN ROMANCES and they are TRIPPING ME UP and WINNING ME OVER:

And if you love these, I have a new sweet TEEN ROMANCE coming out next month called THE SUMMER WE FELL.

THE DELANEY’S GIFT SERIES is YOUNG ADULT PARANORMAL ROMANCE:

And lastly I have the PROWL TRILOGY which are TEEN CHRISTIAN THRILLERS. Think Ted Dekker meets Sarah Dessen.

Harried Housewives, Extreme Makeovers, First kisses and Summer Romance…..

I bet you’re wondering what Harried housewives, extreme makeovers, first kisses and summer romance have to do with one another. Nothing really, except that they encompass my next few novels.  I just finished writing BREAK THROUGH and it will release next week. Blurb and cover picture below:

BreakThrough_ebooksmThe truth is that I’ve enjoyed writing the darker, mysterious romances like BREAK FREE and BREAK THROUGH. But I understand that it’s summer, time for beachy romance reads, and so I’ve decided to release a cute teen summer romance called THE SUMMER WE FELL. I have the cover and it’s gorgeous. I will reveal it soon! But there are a couple of other books that have also been calling my name. If you’ve been following me long then you know that I have several novels that have never been published. Two of them were chick lit, and while I loved them so much, I’ve never known if they would sell well. The chick lit genre was huge when I wrote them but then it kind of tanked. However, lately I’ve been noticing some chick lit titles floating around and I feel like it’s making a little bit of a comeback. I figure it’s summertime so quirky, lighthearted novels might be just what my readers need. So, I’ve pulled out CONFESSIONS OF A HARRIED HOUSEWIFE and ABANDONING ALICE and I’m re-working them. Hopefully they will release in the next couple of months. I hope you enjoy them!! The blurb for CONFESSIONS OF A HARRIED HOUSEWIFE is below!

When Caitlyn Randall catches her husband out with another woman she decides to shed her harried housewife image to become a suburban diva. Following the tips from a magazine article she’s determined to go from frumpy to fabulous in five easy steps.

Only nothing is easy for Caitlyn.

No matter how hard Caitlyn tries, she screws up. Her romantic evenings get ruined, and her attempts at becoming Suzy Homemaker are thwarted by her children’s anecdotes causing the perfect preschool moms to look down their noses at her. If that isn’t enough, she has to fend off the beautiful paralegal that is after her attorney husband, and stop her best friend from dating her married co-worker.

Will Caitlyn be successful in her quest for fabulousness or is she destined to remain a harried housewife forever? 

Be on the lookout for all the titles! Oh, and if you haven’t read HEAD ABOVE WATER, BREAK FREE or STAR STRUCK now is your chance. All three will be on sale June 19-22 as part of the Summer Book Crush!

Happy reading!

 

 


Confession Time! I lied….

Confession time! I lied.

Well, not really on purpose. More like I changed my mind. In my last post I said that I was going to take the summer to spend with my kids and market. That seemed like a great plan at first. Until my kids filled up their summer with activities. Great things like helping out in my sister-in-law’s summer school classroom, going to summer camps, and music programs. They’ve got a great summer planned. But now I’ve got some extra time to kill. Also, I have several characters inside my head dying to get out.

So, I’ve decided to release 2 books this summer. I know. I know. It’s precisely what I said I wouldn’t do. But now I can’t help it. The words are flowing and the stories need to be heard. The first one will be BREAK THROUGH. I have the cover and blurb below. It should release end of June/beginning of July.

The second book will be titled THE SUMMER WE FELL. It will be a teen romance similar in tone to TRIPPING ME UP and WINNING ME OVER. It should release end of July/August.

So be on the lookout for these books and enjoy the reveal below!
