FINNED Now Available!!!

Oh. Holy. Mother. Of. Poseidon.

FINNED is now available on Kindle for people to read!!! And the paperback will be on its way soon!!!

Oh, Lord, I hope readers will have fun and laugh and smile and...well...just all those things!  

There are literally no words to describe how it feels seeing my book sitting there for people to read. Reckon I'm not the only author--nor will I be the last--to be completely overwhelmed and on the brink of emotional overload (and, admittedly, a little more than a little teary eyed).

My mom always said that hugging me goodbye on my first day of school was one of the toughest, yet most rewarding days of her life. Today, I fully get that range of emotions. My characters are my ink-and-paper babies--I love them SO much that part of me didn't want to let them go out in the world...even though they have been as eager as a mob of honey badgers to get on out there.

So, I'm going to go stare at my book on Amazon...and maybe shed some tears that, for the record, will be strictly sinus related (off the record, it's waterworks central).

If you'd like to GET FINNED--head on over to Amazon for The Merworld Water Wars Series, FINNED.

Lights & Surprises

Hello, quiet little blog! Reckon I’ve been seriously M.I.W. (missing in worry…and work) pre-book launch. Oh, it’s been the usual stress, worry, slightly hurl-ish nervousness, blah, blah, blah.

Well, I’m here to say I’m over it. No more stress (translation: way less stress anyway), no more worry (translation: turning down the worry volume), and no more nervousness (translation: oh, who am I kidding? The nerves-ies won’t give up).

Sometimes, I think being nervous isn’t such a bad thing, or at least that’s what I tell myself to sort of justify feeling like a Nervous Nelly. One of my very best friends says being crazy nervous, “ …shows just how much you care about your characters.” So, hurray for being nervous…unless it’s to the point of rocking back and forth on the edge of your seat—that would fall under the label of “LOST IT.” And, no, I’m not to that point…yet…unless it’s during an LSU game.

In just days, my baby, FINNED, will be available. The old me would be 100% panicky; the new me, however, is actually 50% giddy, 25% Eee-ergh-GAG, and 25% Oh Holy Mother of Santa!

I guess what I’m trying to say is this: I’ve found the light switch, flipped it on, and now have a flickering light in need of a new bulb. Hey, it’s better than no light at all, right?

AND…I have some MAJOR surprises coming up this holiday season for anyone who pops by or reads my brain barf! I hope you will stop by for some fun…and, psst…there may be presents. Stay tuned…
