Book Blog Tour for Charades

It has been a whirlwind since the release of Charades, and an awesome one at that! I think the most exciting part of this journey is to hear people’s responses to the story, so it has been fun to talk with my readers after they finish the book. Read the rest of this entry »

What does reading do for you?

I have been tearing through different books this year and am always blown away by lessons/insights I glean from each story, no matter the genre or subject matter.  I know I’m not alone in these experiences.

Yesterday, I stumbled upon an article that beautifully articulated these very feelings. Here’s a snap shot:

“Reading can create an intangible sanctuary where all are invited, regardless of faith, to receive benedictions that send us back into our respective broken worlds with more courage, strength, and hope.”

What about you? What does reading do for you?

Yes, it’s true.

What projects are you working on? What future works are you planning out?

Character reflection: Aiden Lawrence.

Aiden Lawrence is one frustrating fellow.

I always loved the name Aiden as a possible name for my future son (disclaimer: I am not expecting a child right now). When I started writing Eastbound Sailing two years ago, it began as a letter to my future son. Warning him about what he might experience. Dreaming about the person he’ll become.

The concept was great. Then it got frustrating. Read the rest of this entry »

I have dropped the ball. Maybe this will make it up to you?

I have dropped the ball when it comes to posting. For that, I apologize.

I hate making excuses, but maybe this will help make it up to you.

I’m going through the final proofs of Eastbound Sailing, updating the print files and aiming to hit “Publish” by the end of next week. Also organizing some bookstore promo events. Even better, I’m planning a couple free giveaway contests. Yay for free stuff. 🙂 Read the rest of this entry »
