Big Week

This is a big week for me. Not only have my kids gone back to school and I can get back to being a writer, but I am doing something I NEVER thought I'd be doing. I'm self-publishing this week. And I'm excited and scared! One of my stories, Finding Home, is a sweet story. I wrote it for a specific series and the series itself moved homes several times and I  followed it. This past week however, one of my publisher closed its doors and once again, Finding Home didn't have a home. I love this story and each time its lost a contract I wanted to bawl my eyes out. I wrote this story for my mom so she would have something to read by me. After a lot of thinking, I decided it would be best to self-publish it. Then I am in full control of my story. As I am getting everything ready for its relaunch, I have the giddy feeling I did when Beachwalk first signed me with Amber's Muse. I could NOT sleep the week before launch. I was so excited. And while I am still very excited with each release, this is bringing me back to that heart-pumping-on-my-God-this-is-happening feeling. I hope this goes well.

In other news, Bound By Pleasure releases in 2 weeks. I've added it to goodreads and sent out a few ARC copies to my street team to try and get a little buzz before this one releases. I usually only wait a week before a book releases to talk about it. But, I thought I'd start a month ahead and see what happens. I am one of those people when I see a book I want, I want it now and don't want to hear about it for awhile before it releases. However, the book sticks in my head and usually when it does release I will pick it up.

So, with that, I want to share the awesome trailer that one of the Beachwalk Babes, Tamaria Soana, made. She is awesome at book trailers, and she made this one for Bound By Pleasure. It releases on August 20th. If you'd like to go ahead and add it to your Goodreads list, just click HERE.


  1. LOVE the trailer!

    And congrats on going down the self-publishing route. I hope it goes well :D


  2. So sorry to hear about your publisher closing its doors but good luck with the self-publishing! x
