I Have A Book In A Bookstore

When I first started writing, I never really believed I’d see a book with my name on it resting on a shelf in Barnes & Noble, but I fantasized about what it’d look like. It only took five years to see it come true, lol! And here it is, The Zodiac Collector, available at my local Barnes & Noble: IMG_1225 After the initial shock wore off of seeing my book under the “New Teen Fantasy and Adventure” section (I kind of stood staring for a while, then I snapped a few pictures, then I stared some more, then I took more pictures–God, I wonder what people thought!), I snatched the copies off the shelf and autographed them. IMG_1230 The store manager added The Zodiac Collector to the other autographed books they have at the Info Desk under Noteworthy Selections and invited me to schedule a book signing (which will likely be next year). FullSizeRender She and another employee took my picture to commemorate the occasion. Super sweet, right? They totally made my day! IMG_1232 I’ve got a TON of folks to thank for helping me realize this dream, from beta readers, other writers, family, friends, supportive co-workers, and, of course, my editor, publicist, and the team at Spencer Hill Press. MOST importantly, I send a huge

THANK YOU

to my readers. I hope you enjoy The Zodiac Collector. 🙂

Make sure you come back next week when I kick off a week long blog tour with Bewitching Book Tours for The Zodiac Collector!

Writing Wednesday–Fandom

I’ve been happily and humbly surprised by the extraordinary outpouring of support my co-workers have shown me for the release of my short story, City of Lights and Stone, in the Day of Demons Anthology by Anachron Press.

I even got a picture of my first fan, Tiffany. (I signed my first autograph for her.) SO exciting!

Tiffany keeps me organized in work. And we’re both Libras (holla!).

About City of Lights and Stone: “Devils and demons are all about making deals. On the streets of Paris a man called Hector must complete a seemingly impossible task or face never-ending damnation.” ~ From theeloquentpage.co.uk
