*Author Bio*

I am not going to talk in the third person. It feels weird.

I am a Canadian author of Paranormal Romance, Post Apocalyptic and Fantasy novels. Mostly because I think I have Writers ADD, I like to call it WADD. It might be a real thing.


I write New Adult, my books have sexual content (Heck yes) and Swearing. You have been warned. Now enjoy!

I have a beagle named Buster, a husband who I force to read everything I write and two girls who want so badly to be a character in my books. And not in that order.

I am mid thirties so be prepared for the chick lit novel this year. I am calling it my Ode to my Midlife Crisis. 
I have been writing since I was old enough to lie. So for some time.

 Welcome to my world. Please enjoy the ride.

Excerpt 

As soon as my head hit my pillow, and I fully relaxed, my eyes began to grow heavy.   All of the excitement I had been through today had taken its toll on me mentally.  I desperately needed to sleep and recharge.  Before I knew it, I was out cold.
Images flashed behind my eyes, interrupting hours of deep, sound sleep as I softly heard someone whispering my name.  Something was pulling at my psyche, demanding entrance, and I finally gave in to the request. 
Amun was standing by large body of water with his back to me.  As soon as I took a step toward him, he whirled around looking surprised but relieved.
“What took you so long?” he demanded, his black eyes taking on anger.  “I’ve been reaching out to you all day.  I could feel you but I didn’t have access to you…I couldn’t access your mind.  Something is interfering.  HOW are you keeping me out?”
“Ha!” I laughed and sneered at the small victory.  “You mean to tell me you can’t just come into my dreams whenever you want to?”
He flashed to me and grabbed me by my throat.  “You drank their blood?!” he raged in my face as he glared back and forth between my now colorless eyes.  “But you are mine!”
“I am no one’s!” I yelled back as I ripped his hand from my neck and pushed him away from me; the action utterly shocking Amun.  “No one owns me!  No one will EVER own me!”
“A piece of my very soul is inside of you,” he growled, quickly recovering.  “You are mine and you will do as I say.  You will come to me this night!  I DEMAND IT!”
I put my hands on my hips and smirked at him.  “Demand away, Amun.  I don’t know what you’re expecting, but I’m not going to just come crawling to whatever hole you’re off hiding in.  You have no control over me.  Get used to it!”
“Oh, I have plenty of control over you,” he sneered evilly as he took another step toward me.  “All those disgusting feelings of love and desire you felt for that Day Walker…Archer?  I put them there.  I made you dream of him, want him, make love to him…  I made you want to stay with him when you were so set on leaving.  I couldn’t very well allow you to leave and ruin all my plans!  But in the end, you betrayed me, Damu.  There will be a heavy price to pay for that.  You were supposed to stay, complete your change and then kill him and all his children.  Instead you drink his blood and pollute yourself?!  You could have been something great, something beautifully fierce and exquisitely savage, but now you are just another common, pathetic Day Walker!”
I felt my eyes flicker black as anger consumed me.  “I’m not your fucking toy, Amun!  If you think you can force me to feel things and do things for you, you have another thing coming.  I’m going to kill you for what you’ve done to me!  As God is my witness, you will DIE by MY hand!”
Amun chuckled as he looked me up and down and then tsked.  “Oh, my sweet Nisiqtu…you are still so headstrong.  I believe I was wrong about you.  You carry my mark in your eyes.  We are not so different after all, you and I.  You may be a Day Walker now, but the potential for greatness is still there.  The possibilities are endless now.  There is so much we can do to them now that you are one of them.  They will never suspect-”
“Fuck you!” I spat as I turned and walked away.  I didn’t have to listen to his bullshit.  He may have pulled me into this dream but, come hell or high water, I was going to walk out of it.
“You have one week to come to me, Skye,” Amun yelled at my back.  “If you do not obey me, I will start killing your friends and family one by one and I’ll start with that fiery girl who shares your home.  I believe I’ll sew her colorful skin into a new hat.”
I whirled around, my eyes wide and fearful.  “You lay one finger on her and I’ll-”
“Silence!” Amun roared angrily, his voice echoing loudly all around me.  “Seven days, Skye.  And you had better be wearing the presents I left for you when you come to me.”

My Review
Wow Once I started this book I could not put it down I had to know what happen next. Skye Morrison never thought she would become a vampire until she wakes up and wonders what happen to her. She doesn't won't this life but she has no choice. Amun is a bad vampire who kidnapped Skye, and now he is in her dreams visiting her. Soon Skye realize's that Amun was the one who did this. Archer had no choice but to give Skye his Blood he did not won't to lose her. Archer and Skye finally confess their feelings for each other. I can't wait for book 5 to see what happens next. I could go on about this awesome book but i do not won't to ruin it for you guys!!!

Cover Reveal: Perfecting Patience By Tabatha Vargo



Title:  Perfecting Patience
Author:  Tabatha Vargo
Release Date:  July 22, 2013
Genre:  New Adult / Contemporary Romance
Presented by:  As You Wish Tours


BLURB

Sometimes happy endings are just the beginning of an even harder road.

Although her aunt and sister believe she should get help to deal with her past demons, Patience believes the only thing she needs is Zeke. When he comes back into her world, her life couldn’t be more perfect. Except old demons pick the worst time to surface, and once again their happiness is threatened. Help was never a necessity, but Patience finds out that love isn’t always all you need.

Zeke’s dealt with a lot in his life, but nothing could prepare him for watching the person he loves fall apart. Patience is different, she’s not the girl he came to love. He's willing to do whatever it takes to get her back, but a budding music career and his own demons seem to keep getting in the way. How can you help someone else when you can barely help yourself? Once again Zeke is faced with deciding between his future and the future of Patience.



 EXCERPT

Turning in his arms to face him, I took in his softly sleeping face. His mouth was slightly open and his long dark lashes relaxed against his high cheekbones. Running a finger down the side of his face earned me a deep husky moan. It was the sexiest thing I’d ever heard. His facial hair felt like warm velvet against my cheek as I leaned in and pressed a tiny kiss on the corner of his mouth.

I backed away, expecting to continue to watch him sleep, but he followed me up with his eyes still closed and started to kiss me. Again he moaned when I allowed him access and he slipped his tongue into my mouth. Flipping me onto my back, his naked body covered mine. The white sheet tangled around our bodies as he pressed himself to mine.

His hand worked its way up my side brushing against my breast and I released a tiny sound into his mouth. His hand continued its journey until he rested it against the side of my neck. Tattooed fingers dug into the hairs on the back of my neck as he invaded my mouth with Zeke sweetness.
Pulling away, he gazed down at me with sleepy eyes and a lazy grin.

“You woke us up.” His voice was rough with sleep.

I wrapped my arms around his neck, “Us?”

Looking down between our bodies, he looked back up at me with a smile as he pressed his hips into mine. Hard heat that pushed into my thigh and I lifted my hips for more. He smiled down at me and shifted the hair out of his eyes.

“Yes… us. I’m okay in the morning, but the prick downstairs will take a jab at you if you wake him up.

After formally meeting Sorcha at the Winter Ball, Drake, Summer Court prince and army leader, knew there was a fiery passion underneath her winter skin, a passion he wanted desperately to ignite with his own, but with her frigid responses towards him he’s decided to keep his distance, except how can he when his dreams feel real.

Excerpt:

Excerpt: 

Sean jogged over with the bat and held it out for me, grinning. “Pick your pitcher, Allie-O.”

The smirk on Ethan's face was a challenge, and I couldn't resist. “Ethan has the ball, he can pitch to me.”

He made a big show of stretching and winding up before he finally tossed the ball at me.

I smacked the ball over the pool house, and Sean started shouting and cheering, making me smile. Ethan shook his head, but he was smiling. He clearly thought I would be an easy out.

I made it all the way to the final round, kicking Sean and Jeff out of the game. I'd played softball and run track all through school to pad my transcripts.

“You gonna let her win, E?” Jeff called, winking at me from the picnic table where he sat drinking a beer.

Ethan chuckled, showing off those damn dimples. He looked down at the ball in his hands and back up at me with a grin. “If I do, will you let me take you out?”

I snorted, trying to look braver than I felt. “Not a chance.”

“Wait a sec. I like this. Let's make a wager,” he said.

The guys were all hooting and hollering at me, my face was no doubt crimson.

“What do I get if I win?” I bit my lip, feeling all their eyes on me.

“I'm thinking, hang on,” He held up his finger, his brow furrowed in thought. His eyes widened with excitement, and I knew I would regret whatever he had to say.

“If I win, I get a kiss.” If it was possible, my cheeks grew even redder. They were all laughing and making cat calls now.

“And, if I win?” I looked up at his face.

He looked at me for a second, considering. “If you win, I won't ever ask you out again.”

This earned a chorus of “Yeah, right” and “No way” from the guys.

My mouth fell open, I had not been expecting that, but his face was sober. The laughing around us fell away for a second, and I could only stare at him feeling the color drain from my face. His expression remained solemn, and he met my gaze head on.

I nodded stiffly, and swallowed. “All right.”

His grin came back in full force. “Oh, and Al?”

I raised my eyebrows at him.

“I won't lose.”


My Review

Series: The Society (#1)
Genre: Young Adult, Paranormal, Adventure
Publisher:  Self Published
Release Date:  Jan 28 2011
Edition/Formats Available In: E~Book & Print
Synopsis: Keely Allison has spent years trying to prove that her home town of Pembleton Arizona is haunted. She’s let her grades slip, upset her mother by avoiding anything remotely close to the normal high school experience, and utterly ignored a love life. She’s the leader of two person paranormal society, along with her polar opposite Tad Buckley. Tad’s an honors student, the apple of his folks’ eyes and totally in love with Keely (he has been for years and he really, really, really thinks this will be the year he finally tells her just that). When Sean Cage moves to town everyone’s life gets thrown into a violent upheaval. He joins the society, challenges their methods, becomes the first crush of Keely’s life, and forces Tad into a put up or shut up position with his feelings for Keely. As the three find their paranormal and romantic lives suddenly in fast forward, they too find the already well documented spookiness of Pembleton Arizona doing the same. Sean finds sleep nearly impossible as he’s taunted by a monstrous black mass at the foot of his bed. Tad is forced to choose between sneaking out the back door like the rest of the honors kids or going out the front and potentially facing hazing at the hands of a demon possessed jock-bully. As for Keely she just may find the proof she’s always wanted so badly to find, the question is will she believe it when it’s standing right in front of her?

Excerpt:

The week went by pretty much like any other week for Sean and Keely and Tad.  They were anxious about their hunt.  Tad didn’t see much of the other two as he was in his AP classes and because he and Nate hung out almost every day after school that week, not because Tad was dodging them but because he was enjoying spending some time with Nate.  Sean and Keely were keeping it all strictly professional and spent most of their time together talking about the hunt they had coming up.
And while they were having a good week, things were not so good for Randy Adams.  He was sleeping more than twelve hours a day.  He’d had two more ugly confrontations with his father.  Both of which saw his father backing down to him.  Normally Randy might have enjoyed that kind of thing, but the fact that he felt totally out of control of himself while it was happening scared him.
He was hot, physically warm all the time.  He sweated through his clothes at school and couldn’t seem to stop it.  He thought about going to see a doctor, but was too scared to find out that there might be something wrong with him, even though he was completely convinced there already was.  Randy felt it was better to just assume it might get better.  So he covered his body in antiperspirant to try and keep dry, but nothing worked.  His hair lay matted down on his fore head rather than the butch spike he used to keep.
He’d lose track of time once in a while, forget where he was for a period of time, and find himself in some place completely different than before.  He was scared to the point that he was becoming paranoid and violent.  He’d missed football practice all week.  When his coach came to talk to him he’d lifted him off the ground by the neck with one hand and pinned him against the wall.  The coach was so jealous in protecting his reputation that he didn’t even think about turning Randy in.
He’d tried to avoid Tad, and Sean, and Keely…at least when he knew what he was doing.  He was afraid that those three nerds would know what was wrong with him.  That they would be able to look at him, and see it, and then they’d tell him what he already knew that he was totally, completely, incurably screwed.
On Friday morning Randy was having one of his moments.  He was sitting in a desk in the back of Tosh’s class sweating profusely.  He stayed in the back of the room with his head down.  Neither Sean nor Keely had even tried speaking to him after what happened at the house and there was no way he was speaking to them. 
He felt hot and he felt his head roll back seemingly under its own power.  He found himself staring at Keely, staring a hole right in the back of her head.  He couldn’t break his stare no matter how hard he tried.  His hand was clenching a pencil and moving on its own too.  He was drawing something maybe writing something, symbols images but not words, not words anyone could understand at least not anyone in that class room.
He felt his eyes roll back into his head, but somehow he was still able to see. And what he saw was Keely turning to look at him.  She made an odd face, a face not so much disgusted, as concerned.
“You ok there Randy?” she asked looking him right in the eye.
At that moment Randy wanted to break down.  He wanted to admit it.  He wanted to just say, “No.  I’m not OK.  Something’s wrong with me and has been since last week.  I feel like there’s something inside my mind with me and it’s screwing my whole body up, and I’m sweating all the time, and my dad is scared of me, and I’m scared of me too.  Can’t you help me?  Can’t you please help me?!?” But none of that came out of his mouth.
Something did come out of him, but it wasn’t words.  It didn’t even sound like Randy.  It sounded like something else entirely.  He opened his mouth and made a loud high pitched sucking sound kind of like a yawn.  Everyone in class snapped to look at him.  Tosh even rose up from her cross legged seated position on her desk. 
Then Randy started to say something in that same high pitched inward breathing style, but it wasn’t English. 
Some of the class laughed.  Most sat there extremely uncomfortable as Randy Adams sat in his desk with his eyes rolled back into his head leaving only white where his brown irises should have been and spoke in a horrifying tone in a language that sounded like a record being played backward.  Randy then rose to his feet and started walking toward Keely.  Even though his eyes were rolled back in his head he still managed to make it right to her.
Randy could see Keely as clear as day despite the fact he was actually looking at the inside of his own eye socket.  He saw his hand reach out and grab her by the wrist.  He saw her expression change from concern to annoyance, to pain.  He wasn’t doing any of this…but he was doing all of this.  Tears started to pour from his white eyes.
Tosh rushed in, barking at Randy to let go.  He kept hearing the strange sounds coming from his mouth.  He felt a hand on his shoulder.  He felt his body being jerked around.  He felt almost happy to see Sean Cage throwing a punch at him.  He hoped it would snap him out of whatever was happening to him.
But that punch didn’t hit its mark.  He would not let go of Keely.  As Sean pulled him around he’d pulled Keely around with him tipping her desk over and sending her to the floor.  He still held tight to her wrist.  Sean’s punch landed right inside the palm of Randy’s other hand. 
Randy felt his fingers clutch around Sean’s fist and squeeze.  He felt Sean’s knuckles pop as he did so.  Sean’s expression was shock, and even though it actually passed his mind at that moment, he really should be enjoying this, he was more scared than ever.  He saw Sean’s face violently fly toward him as he landed a head butt right in the new guy’s grill sending the kid who’d embarrassed him so many times down in a heap to the floor.
Tosh ran out the door and started screaming for security.  Randy felt himself turn back to Keely who was trying at this point to bite his hand in a desperate attempt to get him to let her go.  She thrashed and tried to kick at him but Randy couldn’t really feel any of it.  He could feel his jaw moving.  He could hear his words starting to make sense.
“Do not think you can defy him,” he heard himself say.  “It is my onus to protect him.  I will destroy you all.”
Randy suddenly felt pain.  He hadn’t when Keely kicked and bit him, he hadn’t felt pain when his head smashed into Sean’s, but now he did. And as he felt that pain he saw particles of wood, and what were clearly chair legs fly past him and crash to the floor.  He spun to see Sean holding a broken chair in his hands.  The other kids in the class had backed to the walls.
Randy felt himself laugh a laugh that was not his own.  He started to move toward Sean but felt himself pulled around.  Randy was relieved to see Tom Folks, the school’s security officer standing there.  That relief faded fast as he saw the back of his own hand smack Folks in the face and send him crashing back into Tosh’s desk.  He found himself turning back to Sean.  He had let go of Keely after the impact of the chair.  Keely had gotten out of his immediate sphere of influence, but Sean true to form wasn’t backing down.
Randy started to move toward him knowing that he was about to do something horrible to Sean whether he wanted to or not, but before he was able to do anything he felt an incredible pain like a thousand bee stings nail him from behind.  He felt the taser that Officer Folks carried on him land right in the base of his neck and he felt big time pain.  He also felt whatever it was that had been controlling him suddenly vanish.
He hit the floor with a wave of abatement passing through him.
Randy was so happy to be back in control of himself that he put up no struggle at all while Folks put plastic cuffs on him and pulled him to his feet.  He was smiling and on the verge of happy laughter as he was shoved out of the room.
Sean checked on Keely.  She told him she was fine.  Tosh said she wanted to speak to both of them after class.
Randy was told he was going to be taken to the police station.  He couldn’t care less.  He couldn’t feel that thing in his mind not even in the recesses.  He was himself.  He was himself. He was so happy to himself that he didn’t care about what was going to happen to him next.
He looked up at himself in the rear view mirror of the police cruiser.
He saw himself smile.
He looked at his eyes.
He saw red.

And fear filled every inch of his body.


My Review

All I can say is Wow...when i was reading this awesome book. Keely isn't a normal teenage girl who talks about guys and all like normal teenage girls do, she investigates Ghost and goes to different places in her town. She knows her town is haunted, and she has her friend tad who is by here side. Soon Keely meets the new guy name Sean who loves to do what she does and soon he becomes a member of the team. Keely soon realize's she has feelings for Sean and Sean has feelings for her too. Tad gets bully by the jock Randy who soon gets possessed by a demon. Sean finds out information about Keely's Uncle and what he has been doing. Keely soon finds out and is all upset. I could go on about this awesome book, but I do not won't to ruin it for you all.

Excerpt

 It was 3:00 in the morning.  The room was black but something even darker than the black night was floating over the bed of Drew ‘Sneeze’ Steichen.  A thick black smoke floated just inches over his prone skinny body and slowly began to take a shape.  It began to take the shape of a woman with a long snake like tail.
“Ssssturgissss,” the forming phantom hissed.
Sneeze’s eyes burst open and his hand fired up like it was shot from a gun and caught the phantom around the throat.  The entity thrashed and a look of shock exploded from its only means of expression, its bright red eyes.   She should have been completely intangible in this form.
“Dardissss,” Sneeze said smiling and hissing.
Dardis, the demonic entity floating over Sneeze, stared down as he throttled her by the throat.  She had felt the presence of her lover Sturgis, the entity that had been living in Sneeze for over six months, but she did not see him in the eyes or voice of this mortal who had inexplicably made firm contact with her noncorporeal form.
“Where is Sturgis?”  She hissed as she tried feebly to get away from him.
Sneeze sat up, still holding her by the throat, and tapped his fore head. “He’s right here,” he said smirking. “Yeah, your big bad demon boyfriend took up a partial residence in my head the night he got his butt kicked by Tad, Keely, and that other guy.”
“Impossible,” Dardis nearly shouted.
“It’s actually completely possible,” Sneeze said with a cocky grin on his face, “Yeah ol' Sturgis apparently took out a bit of an insurance clause that night and parked just a tiny bit of himself in me.  At first he was messing me all up…making me sweat…screwing up my room.”  Sneeze pointed to the image of the Jakob Pembleton statue marred into his wall.
Dardis didn’t have to look.  She’d seen it the moment she’d entered his room.  “Do you know why you did that?”  Dardis asked her voice near trembling.
“He hasn’t told me everything,” Sneeze said with a twinge of anger in his voice.  “Let me tell you what I do know.  I know you.  I know you are Dardis and the two of you had some kind of sick relationship.  I know he’s got a real mad on for the three kids who tore him a new one six months ago.  I know that there’s some group of people working in the shadows and harvesting spirit energy and I know that really makes him mad.  I know you both work for someone he calls…’HIM’…but that’s all I know about that.  He’s going to tell me who him is sooner or later.”
“Sturgis,” Dardis said softly, peering into Sneeze’s eyes, “what has happened?”
“You don’t seem to understand, he can’t talk to you,” Sneeze said getting a little angry.  “He thought he’d come in here and run me right over like he did that jock idiot Randy…who knows though, maybe at full power he could, but there’s only a scrap of him in here and he can’t make me do crap, not anymore.”
“Watch your mouth mortal,” Dardis said with rising ire.
Sneeze put a little squeeze on her throat, “don’t you ever threaten me.  I’ve spent my life being pushed around and bullied, but, thanks to Sturgis, that’s all over now…I’m stronger…faster…I know things that no one else does, not even those idiots in their stupid society…and…I can physically interact with the spectral plane like I’m doing with your neck…right now.”
“You’re a cocky fool,” Dardis snapped. 
“Yeah well you’re a stupid idiot.”  Sneeze hollered back.
“Release me,” Dardis demanded.
Sneeze tilted his head and looked at her for a moment, then did as she asked.  Dardis quickly withdrew across the room.  She lowered to the floor and as she did her long snake tail coiled under her.  Her body was lean and womanly and black.  Unlike Sturgis who appeared as a solid black mass she appeared to be a solid shape filled with swirling black smoke. 
“He wants me to tell you something,” Sneeze said sounding annoyed.
“Tell me,” Dardis demanded.
“Don’t get pushy there toots,” Sneeze barked enjoying being the bully.  “He says you need to see the master.  You need to see…this…HIM…and heh…heh heh heh.”
“Why are you laughing?”  Dardis snapped.
“He wants you to do him one last favor,” Sneeze said.
“Last favor?”  Dardis asked seeming to look through Sneeze with her red eyes.
“He knows he’s trapped in here, and he knows I’m in charge,” Sneeze said full of his own power.  “He knows he’s never getting out.  I turned the tables on him.  He was going to control me, and now I’m using him.”
“Tell me,” Dardis said as threateningly as she could, “what he asks of me.”
Sneeze took his time, “He’d like it very much if you’d…heh…these are his words…destroy the children who caused his ruin.”
Dardis’s eyes narrowed, “I promise you lover, I will do more than that.”
With that Dardis began to quickly dematerialize into smoke and vanished from the room.  Sneeze laid back down in his bed as though this type of thing were just an annoying routine.  He pulled the covers up over his face. 
“Stop trying to boss me around,” he said out loud.  “I told you I’m in charge here, and we don’t need her helping us with those idiots, I’ll take care of that.  We’ll get around to them when it’s time.  Now shut up and let me sleep.  And don’t even think about trying to make me do anything.  I’m not wasting my time drawing anymore symbols or pictures you hear me?  You work for me now.  I’m HIM as far as you’re concerned.”
Deep inside of Sneeze Steichen’s head a monster screamed for freedom, but no one heard him.  Even his captor had tuned him out.



My Review

This book was better then the first book, I could not put it down. The Society team is growing they have a new member Randy who was possessed by a demon, he now know's that these things are real and wants to be apart of the team and to help find these things. They have gone public in there town with a website. Keely meets a new girl in school and lets her come to one of there case's. Keely knew not to trust the girl but did anyway. Keely realize's that there life may be in danger because of this girl. Keely and Sean tells the group that there dating which the other two members knew. I could go on about this awesome book to. If you have not read these books you need to there awesome.

Excerpt (1):
“I mean, how does your mom do it? Most ladies can’t even find a guy to marry them – my mom is still ‘dating’ my dad and can’t get him to commit. But your mom,” Amy inhaled loudly, “she’s like…hum, like a husband whisperer or something,” Amy laughed.
Jewel lifted her shades to peek out at Amy, “So are you saying guys and dogs are the same?” she jumped up and plopped down on Amy’s butt to tickle Amy’s feet, “You calling my mom a dog trainer,” she giggled.
            Whack! The volleyball hit Jewel on the forehead with such force, she fell backwards. Jewel’s foot hit’s Meg’s drink and red juice splattered all over her white bikini. Amy’s butt went upward to knock Jewel onto the hard deck. Falling back, Jewel’s head hit the wood floor knocking her shades off.
            Jewel tried to catch her breath. Pain and anger became one as she blinked against the glare of the sun. Her eyes meet the dark brown ones of a laughing boy standing above her. A gorgeous guy, but who cared, he’d hit her so hard with his dumb ball, she was seeing stars.
            “You! You! Stupid, don’t you know how to hit a ball?” Jewel struggled to get up, and pushed the boys tanned hand away from her. His unruly long black hair, dark eyes, and full lips cocked up in a smirk made her angrier.
            “I’m trying to help you,” his baritone voice sounded like he was fighting against laughter, and he grasped her hand. His firm muscular shaped arm flexed as he bent to help her.
            Jewel slapped it away, “I don’t want your help you ruined my bathing suit and,” she touched her forehead where a small lump was forming, “put a knot on my head!” She pushed at him and stood up, grabbing the volleyball off the ground. His yummy face taunted her when his eyebrow went up questioning her motive. Then she aimed the ball at his head and missed.
            He ducked, “What was that for?” His laughing eyes turned stormy.
            Waving her hand at him, she stepped forward. “Idiots that hit girls with their,” Jewel slipped back, and tried to get her balance, but the last thing she remembered was him smirking at her as her head hit the floor again.

What does 2013 hold for you as an author?

I plan to write a ton of books in 2013! As well as 3 screenplays and a serial novel collaboration. I know it’s rather ambitious but sometimes if you shoot for the moon, landing in the stars isn’t so bad.
I’ll be writing Deviant Storm (book 2 in the Purgatory Reign Series) and editing Wasteland (book 2 in the Bandits series) while finishing up Double Trouble Luv (book 3 in the Summer Luv series). After that I have to finish two screenplays that are supposed to be pitched this September. Wish me luck O_o
I plan to have 1 event a month from April 2013 til Sept 2013. So if you'd like to have me at your school, book club, radio show, on your blog, please drop me a line. I'm booking now.
I also hope to lose 20lbs since I'm gonna be on several book focused TV shows this year.  And Lastly, I want to f inish living out my bucket list (hope to do my Hot Air Balloon Ride).
