Release Day Party

The Servants and the Beast is officially released into the world for readers to enjoy. And we had a fabulous Release Party to celebrate. So many of our friends and family came to support us and hear about how 5 friends came together to collaborate on our little story to make it into a physical, and electronic, book. 65303944_474643906604400_3191818492349251584_n

We took over the local Round Table Pizza restaurant where our writing group, Stonehenge, meets weekly. This group is actually where we all met and became friends. From left to right, we are Cheryl Mahoney, R. A. Gates, Kelly Haworth, Jenniffer Lee, and Karen Blakely.

We sold lots of books and then gave a presentation about how the story came about and what it was like to work with four other writers. Thankfully, all five of us worked very well together.

But if you weren’t able to make it to our Release Party, don’t sweat it. You can get your very own copy of The Servants and the Beast on Amazon. And don’t forget to leave a review. Authors love reviews!65393657_2833512143388655_2017227889891606528_n

Cover reveal is almost here!

Mystery CoverThe cover to what, you ask? Well, let me tell you. Last year, my good friend Karen was smacked in the head with a brilliant idea and she asked rallied some authors to give her a hand bringing the idea to fruition.

And we did!

Five of us writers, Karen Blakely, Cheryl Mahoney, Kelly Haworth, Jenniffer Lee, and me, came together to write a Beauty and the Beast story with a twist. Her idea was basically,  why would the Beast be expected to fall in love with the first person to come along? Pretty unreasonable, right? So, in our story more than one love interest comes to the castle.

To get around having 5 writers writing in 5 different styles and voices, we have the story told through different POVs. Each chapter is told through the eyes of a different servant who were also cursed along with the Beast.

I was quite impressed how well it worked out. We worked so well together, bouncing ideas off of each other and encouraging one another to do our best. I love how the story turned out. And I hope you will too.

The book is titled, The Servants and the Beast and will be released on Friday, June 28, 2019. Come back Friday to see the amazing cover and get your preorder!

Radishfiction

Have you heard of the new story seller in town? And no, it’s not just for stories about food. Radishfiction.com is a new way to find new stories. Like Wattpad, authors upload episodes at certain intervals. The reader pays per episode so that if you discover that the story isn’t for you, you haven’t invested too much and can stop reading at any time.

I have started uploading Pucker Up onto the site to see how many new readers I can reach and I’ll probably upload Mr. Whiskers there too. That short story will be for free just like it already is on the other sites like Amazon and Smashwords.

An author that I follow, Emma Brady, has her urban fantasy on RadishFiction and is doing well. It’s called Trolling. Check it out!

And check out Pucker Up! After that story is fully uploaded, I’m going to start uploading episodes of Sucking Face before I release it world wide!

Upcoming appearance in Reno

96b7abfd-50c6-451c-9d1a-447e89293616It’s almost here! This week marks my 7th RT Convention. This convention holds a special place in my heart because its where I finally met one of my favorite people, Rene, in person. We’d met online at fanfiction.net, becoming fans of each others stories. My username is ruthless527 and she is DaphneRene.

When I saw that the convention was close to her in Southern California and they had a 2 day beginning writers workshop, I asked if she would be willing to attend with me. We’ve gone together almost every year since. *I missed the one in New Orleans a few years back due to life getting in the way.

formalRT2013The second year we went was in Chicago and that’s where we met our fabulous friend, Amanda. We’ve been the Three Musketeers at RT ever since. This is where we get to let loose and party and geek out at all the amazing authors we’ve been admiring for years. I thought I was going to pass out when I met Richelle Mead and then Cassandra Clare.

This year RT is in Reno, NV which is only a 2 hour drive from my home. Which means I can bring home as many books and swag as I can fit in my car, not just my suitcase. Whoo hoo!! A couple of my favorite writing buddies are also going this year so we’re going to have a blast!

So, if you’re in the Reno area, come to the Giant Book Fair on Saturday, May 19th at the Peppermill Resort. The cost is only $10 for the fair or free with a library card. Or stay the whole day for $55 and mingle with a room of amazing authors and then party with us in the evening. And make sure you find me in YA Alley and pick up some swag, buy a signed copy of Pucker Up in the original cover which is going to be a collector’s item, or just say Hi! I’ll also have copies of Mr. Whiskers to sign.

Stop by and get a sneak peek of the next book in the Damsels of Distress series, Sucking Face, coming out in late July. I’ll have pre-order information and details about a Goodreads giveaway I’ll be launching soon. You can also check back here for the 411.

I can’t wait to meet you at RT Reno!
