As of today, paperback copies of my books are available on Scott’s Marketplace. The best part? These are signed copies! If you order one through Scott’s Marketplace, you will get a signed copy with a personal message from me. Signed copies of a book are a thoughtful gift to any reader, and if you message me after you place your […]
This post is going to have some spoilers about The Secrets He Kept, so if you haven’t read it yet and don’t want to read spoilers, you might want to save this post and read it later. In a review or two, and quite often when I speak with someone who’s read the book, a common comment or question is something […]
I am super excited to welcome Dan Kolbet to the blog today to talk about his new book, Better Not Love Me. I had the pleasure of reading this book, as well as the book that came before it, Don’t Wait For Me. Dan is, in his own words, an accidental romance author who writes some amazing books. Today, he’s talking about Better Not Love […]
When I wrote my first novel, back when my oldest son was an infant and toddler, all I had to work with was paper and pen, or the word processing software that came with my computer. If I recall correctly, it was something like Microsoft Works. It was very simple, nothing fancy – and not easy to organize. Going back […]
I just finished reading The Girl On the Train. If you haven’t read it yet, I won’t spoil it for you, but I will give you a brief idea of the story: Rachel is our main narrator, and she’s a divorced alcoholic who we soon realize we can’t trust. She rides the train to and from work every day, and […]
A few months ago, I shared my initial thoughts on Kindle Unlimited, the at-that-time new program Amazon had introduced for ebooks. You can read the previous post for all the details, but the basic premise of Kindle Unlimited is that you pay $9.99 per month to read all the ebooks you want.
When I shared my initial thoughts, I said that I wasn’t really sure if I felt it was a good program or not. After several months, I’ve come to a few conclusions. These are, of course, only my opinions and may not be shared by other authors who’ve been in the program or by Amazon customers who use it.
I’m going to confess: I’ve not read, or watched, Gone Girl. I’ve seen the previews for the movie, and it looks really good. But I’ve heard from some people that it wasn’t that good: they say the ending wasn’t good, or they just didn’t like it in general.
A relative mentioned not liking the ending, and later said that she felt the book was the same: a bad ending. So now, I’m curious.
I read a lot of books. I don’t review every book I read, mainly because if I did that, I’d never write anything else. But I do review the books I get through NetGalley (because that’s the deal – they give me a free book, and I give it an honest review), and I do review books that I feel […]
When I write book reviews, I try very hard to not give away so much of the book that it would make reading it pointless. I might go over a basic summary of the plot, but I try not to give away the ending or any major things that happen, and I also try to make sure that I don’t […]
One of the joys of motherhood is when your children are generous and share. Or is it? My oldest child decided to be generous and share a cold with me. So now I’m dealing with a runny nose, scratchy throat, and general stuffy head feeling. Which is why I nearly forgot that Tangled Deceit just went on sale in the […]
