Big Apple Author Event


I can’t believe this event finally happened! We’ve been planning for the BAAE for so long, it felt as if it was never going to get here, and then it did. Holy Moly, what an amazing weekend.

First, I have to thank Maritza for joining me to be my assistant this weekend. With over 1,000 tickets sold in 8 minutes, we knew it was going to be a very long and crazy day. Next, thank you Megan for coming into the city to see me. As always, your friendship and continued support of my stories means the world to me.


Elle Brooks, forever you are my Book Bestie. I know you hate to fly, and you still crossed the pond to share a table with me. I love your stories, I love you, and I loved spending the weekend with you. Now it’s my turn to head your way! UK here I come!




To the readers… WOW. I am continually humbled by your kindness, your friendships, and your never ending love of our stories. Thank you for coming out to see me, Elle, and all of the other amazing authors. I hope you enjoyed the event hosted by Southern Belle Book Blog, had an amazing day, and until next time! Much love!

Tulsa . . . Meet The Selfie Stick

IMG_2568After the event was over, Elle and I set out around the casino for a little selfie stick fun. If you were at the signing and we saw you out and about, there is a good possibility that your photo was taken. We loved singing country music, dancing, hitting the slots, losing at Blackjack, and spending time with so many new friends. Thank you for making it so memorable for us… xoIMG_2564 IMG_2570 IMG_2574 IMG_2575 IMG_2576 IMG_2583 IMG_2600 IMG_2599 IMG_2585 IMG_2586 IMG_2588 IMG_2589 IMG_2591 IMG_2592 IMG_2593 IMG_2595 IMG_2596 IMG_2604 IMG_2608 IMG_2611 IMG_2613 IMG_2614 IMG_2615 IMG_2619 IMG_2620 IMG_2622

Elle and I had been counting down the days for this signing and boy was it amazing. The girls that hosted this event did an outstanding job with the planning and organizing, and I can’t say thank you enough to Erin Spencer for including me.

Jade and Greg, the kindness that the two of you bestowed on us was more than I ever could have imagined. Thank you for everything that you did for us. I hope to one day be able to return the favor… xo

Erin, Rose, Megan G., Gina, and Dana . . . it was soooo wonderful to finally meet each of you. Thank you for being a part of my book family… xo

Elle Brooks Comes To Visit

IMG_2477Everyone knows that Elle is my book bestie, and on those rare few occasions that I get to see her I am over the moon. I can’t even begin to explain how excited I was for her to come and visit.

Both of us were scheduled to sign at the Hard Rock Author Event, so she flew in on Tuesday to spend a few days here with me and my family. While she was here we shopped, hung out with friends, and headed down to Anna Maria Island so she could visit the home of the Hale Brothers.

I loved her coming here to Florida and I hope that she gets to make it back real soon… xo

Penned Con 2014


So, I have to put up a post about my wonderful weekend in St. Louis at Penned Con. The event was hosted by Rick and Amy Miles, and they did an amazing job. We met some truly talented authors and learned a lot from Mark Coker, founder of Smashwords. I’m very excited to say too, that the weekend raised almost $11k for Action For Autism. I’m very proud for them.

Now, it must be said though, that the best part of the whole weekend for me was finally meeting my book bestie Author Elle Brooks. Anyone who has ever followed a post of mine, knows that she is someone wonderful and I love her. Here’s a little highlight of our AWESOME weekend.


Neither one of us had ever been to St. Louis . . . so after asking around, here’s what we decided to do. A visit to the famous arch, a tour of the Busch Brewery, and a night out ultrafeasting (sushi, Thai, and lots of beer).
