For once, I am actually glad another month has passed! June is, naturally, my new least favorite month of the year…not that I’m very fond of any of the summer months. Believe it or not, I am NOT a summer girl. *shudders* But enough about that! I hope y’all have been enjoying the deathly heat—maybe y’all had sense enough to vacation in the Alps or something. *winks* Speaking of vacation, that is the excuse I’m giving for not having completed everything on my to-do list this mo
This lovely story (the last of the Tell Me You Love Me runners-up that I'll be able to share) is such a beautiful mix between lighthearted banter and serious heart-to-hearts! I love the humor and the intensity and how Louise managed to develop two intriguing characters and their relationship through just a few lines of dialogue! I think y'all will enjoy this one just as much as I did! Without further ado...Walk the Garden by Louise Taylor! The room was clamorous, endless chat
Y'all. This story...it broke me. It is so tender and sweet and beautiful...and that ending. *sobs* It's just perfect. I love the concept. The characters. The themes. The love. I think y'all will love it too! Thank you so much, Abigail, for writing and submitting this gorgeous story! *heart swells* What did rain feel like? Curled up in a round window frame, I stared outside. Rain fell in sheets, thick and blocking out the view of anything else. Reaching for the window, I imagi
You know how life is. You can't get everything you want...just like you can't pick every story to go in your Christian romance anthology (definitely a situation we can all relate to, am I right?). So when push came to shove and I had to pick only a few stories (twelve being the exact number), I reserved a few to publish here on my blog! Give you a little taste of what you might find in the anthology, eh? Our first featured story is by my dearest friend Linyang Zhang...y'all,
Y’all, I dunno about this tag. This is gonna be tough! The ABC tag requires you to write a story with 26 sentences, each sentence beginning with a letter in alphabetical order...and lemme tell y’all, Vanessa Hall made it look EASY! She’s to blame for saddling me with this tough challenge, and her pirate story was sooo good! Y’all can read it here! Thanks again, Vanessa, for the tag! Fingers crossed I can do it justice! Also...I just so happen to be doing a nautical-themed sto
Stars: 5 Synopsis: Ares and his twin sister Astrid have been tasked with a terrible secret...they, the children of superhuman scientist Dr. Hiram Bailey, have superpowers. And if their father finds out? Well, that won’t ever happen. Will it? STOP IT, JENNA! YOU’RE BREAKING MY HEART! Seriously, y’all, this short prequel to Ignite, Jenna Terese’s debut novel, shouldn’t have the power to rip my heart to shreds...but it does. In just a few pages, Jenna takes us back in time to Ar
Wow, have I got a jam-packed post for y'all today! In honor of the upcoming release of E. G. Bella's debut story, The Toymaker's Doll, I have not only a book spotlight but also a review of the story AND an interview with the author! This short story is SO SWEET and I know you're not gonna wanna miss the chance to read it, so without further ado... About the Book A limp. A scuff. A cowardly heart. Jane is a doll struggling with all these things. She and her friend Isabel, a bl
I am super duper excited to announce that Six O'clock, my first release this year, is completely FREEEEEE!!!!! Well, from the 27th (aka today) until the 30th, that is! Then the price is going down to $0.99 FOREVER!!!! Isn't this exciting? Anyway, take a gander at the book here... Then snag your copy here... Then CELEBRATE! Oh, and while you're at it... I'm considering having a new cover designed for Held Captive. This is something I've been pondering off and on since I commis
*facepalm* Y'all know how I promised to wrap up the tour yesterday? Yeah, that obviously didn't happen. Why? Because I had a ridiculously busy day and was thiiiiiiis close to finishing up this post when my wifi shut off. So, you know. Here we are now. A day later. Oh, well. Anyway... The launch tour has officially ended, my lovelies, and as sad as that seems, it is truly a cause for celebration!!! All of you have made the launch a HUGE success, for which I am exceedingly grat
Today marks exactly twenty years since the events of 9/11. I think that deserves a moment of silence. Today marks the day thousands of people lost their lives and thousands more lost loved ones. I think that deserves a moment of grief. Today marks the day our nation fell in the form of two crumbling towers. I think that deserves a moment of respect for all the men and women who sacrificed for this country, who built it up before and who built it up again so that, twenty years
Reviews are pouring in, y'all, and I am pleased to say that Daylight is looking like a success, all thanks to my amazing reviewers!!! Y'all are the best! Now, because positive reviews - or reviews of any kind - make my like author heart want to jump for joy, I want to share a little bit of what readers are saying about Daylight! “Out of the ashes of 911 comes Daylight, a poignant short story about a tragic moment in American history, where glimmers of hope emerge from glimmer

Today, I have two fun things to share with y'all - an exclusive interview with the main character of the story, Sylvie; and a downloadable book club kit! A book club kit contains discussion questions, a note from moi, and a bit of backstory about Daylight, perfect for book clubs (of course) or an individual reader!

And now, for the moment you've all been waiting for... The beginning... Of the blog tour... For the launch... Of... Daylight 9/11 short story. Coming September 11th, 2021. It was too late.
The whole world knew it, the nations shaking their heads at the fallen United States, our beautiful country of hope and freedom covered in blood and ashes.
Only the devil could’ve planned something so disastrous.
Only God could save us now.
Only God could save August.
It was all my fau
It is with great pleasure that I finally announce to you (like I've been promising to do for nearly three months now) the upcoming release of Daylight. I had plans to finish it up and send it on its way to the hands of readers everywhere (okay, just across America, Canada, England, Australia, Malaysia, Germany, and France - where most of my readers reside), but between being a really slow writer with horrible time management skills and deciding on a very significant release d
