I’ve got some plans to mark the occasion, so check back here in a few for all the details!
In the meantime, you can preorder Picture This here!
I’ve been tagged by the wonderful author Tracy Krimmer to participate in the Very Inspiring Blogger Award/Tour! That means I get to share seven interesting things you might not know about me. At least, I hope they’re interesting.
But, you know, while authors put all sorts of exciting adventures in their books, in reality they’re sitting around in their pajamas with their hair sticking up in all directions, drinking coffee and freaking out about their sales numbers and whether anybody’s going to notice how badly spackled-over that most recent gaping plot hole is.
Still, this is my best effort. If these facts are boring as *#&!, give me a verbal smack upside the head in the comments, and I’ll try to come up with truly intriguing bits of information, okay? Okay. Here we go… Read the rest of this entry
Here we go again. In just about four weeks, my fourth book will be released. It’s called Picture This, and it’s the second in my small-town rom com series, following Down on Love, which came out last November. When I wrote Down on Love, I didn’t think of it as anything more than a standalone. After I turned in the final draft, my editor at Kensington asked if I would make it a series, with one of the minor characters— Celia Marshall, the hero’s ex-girlfriend—as the main character.
Oh dear. Read the rest of this entry
Hey, you’ve gotta break a few eggs to make that fabulous flan, right? Okay, I might be kidding myself, but that’s my theory on why my messy process actually produces books. In any case, welcome to the Writing Process Blog Hop! I was tagged by Lori Schafer last week (read her entry here) and I’ll tag another author at the end of this post.
Want to know how and why I write? Put on your gaiters and let’s wade in! Read the rest of this entry

I swear, it’s stuff like this that just turns me all around. TheGirlWhoLovesBooks posted a screen shot of an e-mail blast she received from a noted author (who shall remain nameless) asking for something that beggars belief. Go take a look—it’ll open in a new window. I’ll wait. Read the rest of this entry

It’s a week of #ChickLitLove for the ChickLitChat authors!
Today is Galentine’s Day (thanks, Parks and Recreation!)—a day to recognize female friends. But I kind of want to call it Palentine’s Day, because sometimes a girl’s bestie is a guy. (And sometimes the guy doesn’t even want to sleep with her, nor she him.) So here’s to pals!
And be sure to follow the hashtag #ChickLitLove on Twitter for other great posts today! Tomorrow: Attack of the Graphics on Twitter! Stay tuned!
And if you haven’t heard, Down on Love is on sale (!) right now (!) for only $1.99 at B&N, Kobo, and iTunes!
Book: By Design
Main character: Emmie Brewster
- Trish, bestie since middle school
Bestie Boost: Provides ready supply of wine, sympathy, and advice when Emmie is distraught over her love life or career; also Trish’s family (husband, two sons) provide perspective (that having a husband and family doesn’t guarantee bliss, but instead instills a different type of chaos)
Sample advice: “Emmie, my darling, there’s something you’ve never understood about life. If you don’t like something, don’t put up with it—throw it out!”
- Avery, misguided blind date who became gay bestie instead
Bestie Boost: Another shoulder to cry on; love life serves as a reminder that Emmie should be trying to have way more fun than she is; lingerie fashion advisor
Sample advice: “If you don’t at least try on a leopard-print bra, the terrorists win.” Read the rest of this entry
