New Website for Clean Wholesome Romance

Do you like clean wholesome romance? If you read and follow my work, then my guess is YES, you do. And since that’s the case, I’ve got some good news for you.

There’s a new romance that focuses solely on clean wholesome romance.

Kathy over at iamareader.com was one of my very first supporters. We’ve never met in person, but she read Just Ella and promoted it for me just because she loved it. I’ve since used her services for several of my other launches and I really appreciate the work that she does to spread the word about quality books.

So I’m excited to help her in spread the word about her NEW website, CleanWholesomeRomance.com.

She was nice enough to do a spotlight post about me, that includes an interview and some other fun stuff.

    You can also join her facebook Clean Wholesome Romance Fan Group where she’ll post deals, new releases, etc… all centered on the kind of romance we love.

And if you’d like to stay up to date on what she has to offer, then sign up for her newsletter here.

An Author’s Guide to Self-Publishing

I’ve been doing this for a while now, and my editor thought it would be nice if I were to write down a little something about the adventures of self-publishing and what I’ve learned from it. I’ve had several first-time indie authors ask me how to go about it, but you’ll probably be surprised that it’s not as daunting as you might think. The self-publishing platforms are really good at guiding you through a step-by-step process. Continue reading

I Write In Scrivener

I use a program called Scrivener to write my books.

Why? Why not Microsoft Word? Or Pages? Or Googledocs?

Well, I considered doing a bunch of screenshots and explanations, but then realized it would be a whole lot easier to just show you. So I made this:

This is just an intro on how to get started. Scrivener is also great for compiling your book into whatever format you need (epub, mobi, PDF) but there are a lol of ins and outs for compiling that I didn’t want to get into for this movie. Maybe another time. If I get brave…

 

Happy Release Day!!

Release days are always exciting.

And nerve wracking.

Because no matter how many times I do this, my emotional attachment to these books and their success never wanes. Going to the Kindle page and seeing there are already several wonderful reviews less than 24 hours after it was released makes my little author heart sing. Continue reading

Tell Me What To Write

Since Patreon is a new forum for me, I thought I’d give you guys an example of what exactly I’m going to be doing on it. Yes, you can get early copies of my book releases if you join the $3 tier. But I want to talk about the $2 tier. This tier allows participants to help me write a book. For example, right now I’m just getting it started, and this is the poll that I’ve put up for patrons to vote on.

The results of this poll will determine the basic premise of the story, and then I hope to get more detailed feedback on what the situation will be, settling, etc… Then I’ll write the first chapter, distribute it to patrons, and then we’ll decide where to take the story from there.

Now, this is all experimental. Maybe it will turn out awesome, and I’ll end up publishing the final, polished story. And maybe it will just be something fun and crazy for those who’d like to tell me what to do, and want a little more clean romance in their lives. 🙂

So if this looks like fun to you, then hop over to Patron and check it out. The $2 tier also gives you access to additional bonus content, and a forum of people who love books as much as you do.

All Our Broken Pieces

Hey y’all! Ready for the 4-1-1 on my new book? Well, here you go!

The story of Ginny and Alex will be coming soon (end of August or early September). It’s a novella—about 1/2 of the length of my other books—and will be priced accordingly.

BLURB:

Ginny and Devin have been best friends for most of their lives. They’ve relied on each other, laughed with each other, kept each other sane. Continue reading
