The Thing About Apples: Giveaway!

In honor of the release of The Thing About Apples, I’m running a giveaway on Goodreads!  5 signed copies are up for grabs- and before even promoting the dang thing, it’s got 119 people entered! The giveaway will last until August 30th, just in time for me to announce the lucky winners for my own birthday.

If you don’t want to take the chance, remember that I always will make signed copies available if you request them through my contact form (allow time for me to get copies in, signed and then sent back out!). Buying paperback through the publisher  will get you a freebie e-copy (though you can also buy the e-book for the price of a cup of coffee!), and is also available through Amazon or Barnes & Noble.

Ending the Year Right!

To Dwell in Dreams, the second novel of the ‘Once Upon a Reality’ series, made the ‘Favorite Books of 2014’ list of fellow eLectio author, Amanda Romine Lynch! I feel so honored- and motivated to keep chugging along with the third book, The Thing About Apples, which is currently in progress.

(And don’t forget, if you haven’t read To Dwell in Dreams yet that you can still start from the beginning of the series with Til the Last Petal Falls! Great way to start your year of reading in 2015!)

Release Day: It’s Here!

It’s official- my second novel, To Dwell in Dreams, is now available!


Get it now from Amazon (paperback or Kindle) or my publisher’s website (paperback or several electronic versions). Links to Barnes & Noble are forthcoming. Tip: If you buy from the publisher directly, and get the paperback, you get the physical copy and a free e-copy!


Don’t forget when you do get a copy to leave an honest review on Goodreads, Amazon, or the Barnes & Noble website. Feel free to also send me a picture of you reading the book, or let me know what your favorite quote is so I can highlight it!
