BROKEN FOREST: Cover Makeover

If you haven’t noticed, BROKEN FOREST had a book cover change, before I get into the WHY, take a peek at the new cover.   Isn’t it pretty? When my publisher discussed a cover change, I was a bit hesitant. I LOVED my cover and so did my publisher, but we had this tiny teensy […]

Mid-Week Muse: The Nightmare..

Mid-Week Muse: The Nightmare Affair

I LOVED this book.  Goodreads Blurb: Sixteen-year-old Dusty Everhart breaks into houses late at night, but not because she’s a criminal. No, she’s a Nightmare. Literally. Being the only Nightmare at Arkwell Academy, a boarding school for magickind, and living in the shadow of her mother’s infamy, is hard enough. But when Dusty sneaks into […]

Too much of a good thing?

Too much of a good thing?

How much is too much? In the case of the Griswold’s Christmas lights, I’d say yeah, there’s a limit. Lately I’ve been thinking about books. There are a lot of YA books releasing every year and tons of them are amazing. The more I read, the harder it is to stand out. I’ve been thinking […]

Why I Love YA

Why I Love YA

I remember how one kiss could make me float and one forgotten call could bury me in pain. Reading YA takes me back to […]
