Monthly Archives: August 2015
Today is August 11th and it marks the one year birthday for my debut novel Drops of Rain. It’s funny how people often talk about milestones and the big events that mark them, but for me, this day stands out as one all on its own.
There’s a silence around me today that’s filled with contentment and awe. I’m amazed by myself and that I put out three books in a year, and I’m humbled by those around me who’ve made this dream come true. To the readers, bloggers, author friends, and street team words can’t express the gratitude and love I have for all of you. I’ve always said the book community is the best community and it’s here I finally feel like I belong.
A few months ago, after the release of Unforgettable Sun, I was interviewed by a blogger and one of her questions was, “Knowing what you know now, would you go back and rewrite Drops of Rain?” I still stand by my answer, and that is, “No.”
Like any craft, the longer you work and educate yourself on it, the better you get. I do believe that I have grown as an author, but at that moment when I was ready to publish Drops of Rain, it was the best it could be and I was proud of it.
On Amazon, Drops of Rain hit #59 in ebooks – Romance – Sports and #79 in ebooks – Teen & Young Adult – Romance. The only words I have to say are, “Thank you.”
To celebrate, I’ve dropped the price to .99 cents for a few days. If you have friends who you think would enjoy this story, please spread the word, and don’t forget to leave a review when you are done. No matter how big or small, to us authors they all make a difference.
Much love, xoxo
I am so excited to release the cover of my next novel Blue Horizons.
As most of you know I was in the process of writing Camille’s book, Chasing Clouds, when the idea for this one just took off. The voices were so loud, I couldn’t ignore them. I quickly fell in love with Ash and Ava, and I hope you will too. To be released on October 19th, 2015.
Music is my motivation. I’ve always believed that, because of it, I would be somebody. Somebody to someone, and something to myself.
At age four, I picked up my grandfather’s acoustic guitar and, up until three weeks ago, I’ve never put it down. From a single chord to a full arrangement, music fed my soul. I craved it with every fiber of my being, but now, I just don’t know. That driving force that’s always pushed me has somehow stalled, along with the thrill, the passion, and the familiarity . . . it’s all gone. I’m beginning to worry that my love for music just isn’t enough.
As the summer tour finally comes to an end, I head to the Blue Ridge Mountains instead of returning to Nashville. It’s here that I’ve always been able to lose myself amongst the solitude and the lake, but what I didn’t expect to find was her.
Wild blonde hair, light blue eyes, and a laugh I find myself trying to coax from her has me completely enamored. She’s quiet, incredibly poised, and driven by secrets as big as the mountains around us. They’re what’s made her untouchable, and left me wanting to know more.
Maybe that’s what I need. Maybe I need more. Maybe I need her.
They say that life isn’t about how many breaths we take, but how many moments take our breath away. But what if those moments aren’t filled with happiness and love, but something dark and haunting? For me, it’s those moments that’ve shaped and taken over my life. I can’t change who I am, God knows I’ve tried, and, because of this, I’ve accepted the silver lining . . . I’m alive.
Fifty-two white keys, thirty-six black keys, ten fingers, seven notes, two friends, and one stage. At the piano, on the stage, with my two best friends, I finally found myself, and I live for those moments. One by one, I collect them, cherish them, patiently waiting for the next, until it arrives and changes everything. That’s the moment I meet him.
