Life has been absolutely crazy lately. Once May ended, it was as if shit just hit the fan and kept flying. The house was put on a standstill after we completed the sheetrock and painting in the living room. We were burning candles at every end trying to get the house somewhat finished and ready for our trip to Oregon. I'll post pictures.
On June 10th, I took Teaghann to Wichita to see the musical Hamilton for a super early birthday gift. She was so excited. Seeing her sweet face light up upon seeing all the characters and everyone on stage. Granted, it wasn't the original cast, but she was still happy. I bought her so much swag including a giant, rotating and light up snow globe she had to have. I'd figure if it's an early birthday, might as well load her up on everything.
Then we went back to Oregon. We left Kansas the 15th, got there the 16th and stayed for 5 days. It was great to see everyone. I wish I could've seen more people but given the limited about of time, we tried to fit in all we could. I didn't get to stop at eat as near as many places as I had planned, but we did get some in. Mainly, Lam's Chinese, Cowboy Coffee, and Islas De La Mar. The kids were thrilled to be home. I think the time difference totally wiped them out. I've posted some photos below.
In bookish news, I've decided to take a few series Wide; meaning, I'm offering the books on platforms other than strictly Amazon. So far, I've taken the Castre series wide. Next will be the westers, I just have to wait until the contract with KDP is closed for the majority of them, which will be around October. I'm super excited to see how this pans out. I know a lot of people like having options of where to purchase eBooks and the availability/access to them.
Paperbacks will still be offered on Amazon. I'm slowly getting paperbacks uploaded on Barnes & Nobel, however, I'm STILL waiting for them to approve my vendor account. I've been waiting since June. But progress is progress and I can be patient.

Another thing that happened is, I'm in an anthology coming out this Christmas! The theme is - coming home for the holidays. Myself and 16 other authors have come together for some amazing stuff. I decided to do the formatting for this book and made pretty page headers for it too. I wanted to help keep the cost down so I'm donating my skillset to help. Also, myself and the authors decided to donate all royalties to a charity called - PAWS - to help animals in the shelters. And check out this adorable Blurb I made! I cannot wait to see what these other authors have come up with.
As for my story, a sweet small town woman, Ronen came home to find more than she bargained for, and a hunk of a man with an even bigger secret. As always my story is with my wonderful editor - Tiffany Purdon - who never complains about all the things I throw at her.

Fa-la-la-fall in love with this holly jolly book!
Then, as Tiffany busily edits that story, of course I'm working on another! This story is set in the same world as Zuri and Evander in Dangerous Ties, only this is 60 years later.
Wicked Witch follows Hadley Birch who is sweet yet fearful of who she is. She knows exactly what she is, what she possess and it terrifies her more than she cares to admit. Keres, the Supreme of The Black Ash Coven wants her soul, because a witch's soul is the source of who she is, her power, her essence. Keres wants all that Hadley is and will stop at nothing to obtain it. Hadley is alone, on the run, and can pack one hell of a punch, yet her fear and distrust of everyone around her, might cause her downfall quicker than she can teleport herself from. And Brodie, a devilish vampire, wants her blood for a specific purpose... It's a race to see who can get Hadley first. And each option results in death.
And finally in all my eventful news, I have started a new job. I now work as a Deputy at the Register of Deeds for the Comanche County Courthouse. I left being a dispatcher after things got a little weird for me. I miss it, but I don't miss the ominous feeling I kept getting every time behind the radio. Some may say its jitters or anxiety, whatever have you, but it wasn't even that. I cannot explain it. It just happened to be the vibe I got. And it was more than just that too. Anyhoot, I miss all the dispatchers. They're great ladies.
However, this new job allows me to be home more with my minions and off in time to watch all their sports, which is super important to me too. My kids are happier. Husband is happier and so am I. It's a relief.
Anyways, that's all from me. I hope you're doing well. Have a fabulous day!
