January 1 was (roughly) six months ago. I hate making resolutions, but I had a lot of plans for this year. Isn't it funny how things change?

You've been extraordinarily kind, visiting the different sites who have hosted me for my book release. We're winding down the tour, but I've got a special treat first. We're stepping back from the novella and focusing on the series today. My good friend, author C. S.

Ciao, everyone. I mentioned the other day that I had only one stop left on the Password book release tour. I'm delighted to announce that it's today, and it's at Michele Jones's site. Best part?

My blog tour for Password is winding down. There's only one post left (if I've planned correctly). Until that goes live, I thought I'd post an excerpt of the novel here. Finally, he came out. When he saw her staring at him, he turned off the light. She could still make him out in the dim … Continue reading An Exclusive Excerpt from PASSWORD
Admit it. You're singing the song from the commercial. I am. (Probably will be all day, too.) I chose this because, today, I feel like a nut. Several of my friends released books around the same time I did. We've been scheduling visits at each other's sites to help promote. Sometimes the details became confusing. … Continue reading Sometimes you feel like a nut…

Today, I have the pleasure of heading over to the entertaining website of C. S. Boyack, where he's allowed me to share a blurb and excerpt. Craig is a good friend, … Continue reading On the Road Again… (Book Excerpt: PASSWORD)
The weather's been crappy and the Steelers aren't going to the Super Bowl, but I'm still celebrating. Password releases today! This was the first novel I ever released with a preorder, and I'm excited to see if it made a difference.

Ciao! Today dawned overcast, a little rainy. Sort of the way I picture the UK. Sure, I know the whole country isn't like that (at least, not all the time), but I've never had the pleasure of visiting, so I only have the stereotypes to go on. I mention this because I'm virtually "hopping across … Continue reading A Hop Across the Pond (With a Good Book)
