Hey, everyone! Thought a new post was in order since my last one was the first of November - oh my! At the moment, I'm about to start on my third book, which I'm very excited about. It's going to be different and very challenging - I'll keep you updated on how it's going! I've also been starting preparations to make my second book ready for release. It'll be out next spring. I'm thinking about the cover and have 3 ideas in mind. And for the first time, I'm attempting to get a license to reprint song lyrics. In Revamp, I nixed them all, but I have one song in the second book and I really want to keep it in, so we'll see - I'll be writing a post on my progress with that...

Lots happening, but I won't abandon you! My goal is to write a blog post every week and that is exactly what I am going to do. Yeah.   

By the way, how awesome is The Walking Dead this season! Man, they have squashed the feelings and upped the gore factor, and I LOVE it!

Go see "The Fear List (200 Fears)." This actually took me a while, despite the fact that everyone is afraid of something and pretty much anything at all can be feared. Even cute, fuzzy bunnies. Though, they're not on the list.

"[Revamp] is a fast-paced, heart-pounding story."
