So the summer is flying by. Okay, so I don’t mind that it’s flying for the simple fact that I want my vacation to hurry up and get here (LOL). But that being said, it can slow down while I’m on vacay. We’re taking our annual trip to the Upper Peninsula in Michigan. And this year will be even more special because we’re looking to buy a vacation home up there (woot-woot). There is some lovely wilderness and beaches up there. Besides, I figure I can also use it as a writing getaway (heheh).
I’m working on book 2 for The Winter People. Boy is it WAY slow going (groans). The day job has been eating up a lot of my time. But I am making progress. It isn’t due until next year, but I’m trying to get a jump start on it before edits etc come in on Winter People.
I’ve been reading some great books this summer. I just finished reading The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater. I absolutely loved that book. There is some great mythology in it and of course some romance (hahaha). The backdrop added so much to the story. I’m currently reading The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead—so can’t put this one down. Love the Sydney and Adrian dynamic.
I’m missing Vampire Diaries, but am excited that Destination Truth is finally back (on SyFy). Seriously awesome show.
Oh and before I let you go, I have to share another lovely review I received for The Fairy Godmother Files from Romancing the Book! I’m so glad that people are enjoying this story. It was such a blast to write.
Well Happy Friday the 13th…enjoy your weekend.

Squeeee…you guys, how AWESOME is this? Coffee Time Romance gave The Fairy Godmother Files: Cinderella Complex 5 cups! OMG, that’s so flipping great.
If you get the chance, drop by and check out the review!
I’m writing chapter 6 of MD2 (My Dad’s a Paranormal Investigator bk 2). Hoping to pick up the pace on this a bit so I can get it done before July/August. Maybe sooner if I can crack down. Hoping to juggle another book at the same time, but we’ll see how that works out.
Hope everyone has an awesome day! Happy May!

Also, while you’re there check out the AWESOME 5 heart review TFGF received. So humbling. It makes me happy to know that people are enjoying my characters/stories.
Now for my LONG overdue Lucky 7 Meme I’ve had several people tag me on this and I’m FINALLY getting to it. This excerpt is from The Fairy Godmother Files: Cinderella Complex. So, here are seven lines from the seventh line down on the 77th page of The Fairy Godmother Files: Cinderella Complex.
Jack peered inside. Satisfied there was nothing there, he sat back down on my bed. “I’ll have you know, in almost every scary movie, someone’s killed in the shower.”
“Oh, please.” I shut the door before he had the opportunity to reenact Psycho. But when I turned toward the shower, uneasiness tightened my muscles. I crossed the room, taking quiet steps. My heart thundered. As I reached for the shower curtain, my hand shook. With a deep breath, I tore it back. The cli‑clink of the curtain rings sent me reeling backward. I steadied myself on the edge of the bathroom sink and stared at the empty space.
Great, nothing like letting Jack give me a complex.

Since my publisher has the book blurb up under the “coming soon” portion, I’ve decided it’s safe to share (LOL).
Sixteen-year-old Maggie Winters can’t think of anything more exciting than junior year. There’s her first prom to look forward to, she can drive, and most important Connor Prince has finally noticed her. But unfortunately so has the school snob, Katrina Melville, who goes out of her way to make Maggie’s life a living hell. If that’s not enough, Maggie’s grandma has decided to retire, which doesn’t seem like such a big deal. That is until she finds out her grandma is a Fairy Godmother, and not just any Fairy Godmother. The Fairy Godmother, as in Cinderella, pumpkins, and mice. And she has informed Maggie that she’s next in line to become the new Fairy Godmother.
At first Maggie is excited, the whole getting wings, flying (or rather trying not to crash), and a wand that lets her grant wishes. It’s like being a superhero, without all the action, explosions, and spandex. Then she gets her first assignment, Katrina Melville, her nemesis. And if that doesn’t make her want to poof herself into oblivion, she finds out that part of Katrina’s happily-ever-after is Connor Prince. Life is so unfair. Even worse, she can’t tell her two best friends about any of it and they’re getting sick of her disappearing acts. Then there are the dangerous creatures, called Grimms who will stop at nothing to keep the happy endings from being fulfilled, even if it means destroying the Fairy Godmother responsible. With time running out, Maggie has to make this wish come true or it will ruin the fates of everyone involved, and open the world to darkness beyond imagination. Maggie will soon find out what it truly means to be a Fairy Godmother—and it isn’t all about princes, gowns, and wings, but something much more.
Only a few more weeks until it’s release! So excited to share it with everyone! Seriously, this book has been a couple years in the making.
