Tomorrow's the Day!

It is the last of or September 30, 2007 and as I sit here getting ready for bed, all I can think about is tomorrow. Tomorrow is another dreaded Monday for most, but for me it's going to be a day filled with excitement, joy, nervousness and pure elation. I will still awaken at the awful 6am hour, wake my children, take the big girls to school and fix breakfast for my toddler and me. But, after the mundane morning routine I will begin my day.

Tomorrow is October 1st. It is the day that my new book is released. A project that my world has revolved around for the last six months has come to fruition and I'm delighted!

Alright, that's all for today. I MUST get myself off to bed or I will be exhausted on top of everything else going on tomorrow. I hope that all of you will stop by tomorrow and check out my new book, and maybe even order your own copy! :-)

Good night and sleep well.

The days are ticking away.

Wow, only 12 more days until the release of A Midnight Infatuation. I can't believe that it is almost time. This book has been the center of my writing life since May and I can't believe that it's time to share it with the world. I'm soooo excited!

Next Monday, exactly 1 week before the book's release, I will announce the contest that I will be running in October. I hope that many of you will participate. It should be fun! So be on the lookout for that announcement next week.

It is a lovely day here in north Georgia. The temps are cool, there is a light breeze and the sun is shining brightly. I even have the windows open in my little house. I love this time of year!

2 weeks!

There's only 2 more weeks until the release of my new book, A Midnight Infatuation. Well, technically, it's really 16 days, but that's close enough to 2 wks for me. I'm soooo excited!

To everyone who is planning purchase their own copy of this wonderful story, I will be running a contest during October so be on the lookout for the big announcement right after the book's release.

Don't forget to check out the book's trailer below!

Book Trailer!!

I hope that you enjoy it as much as I do. :-)

Exercise, why do we hate it so?

I know that this isn't a "professional" update, but I do ocassionally post "personal" stuff on this blog also. I like to keep it all in one spot if possible.

Anyway, why do we hate exercise? It's good for us. Our body needs it. We feel soooo good afterwards (endorphins and all that jazz), but why do we have to practically FORCE ourselves to do it?

Some of you out there may be thinking, "I love to exercise" and if you are, CONGRATS! Unfortunately, many of us are just the opposite. I hate exercising, hate it with a passion. BUT, I force myself to do it and I always feel good about it afterwards. I just can't seem to get past the feeling of dread each day when it comes to my workout.

For those of you who don't know, I have lost over 100lbs since my youngest daughter was born. I tipped the scales at 323lbs the day that she was born. Oh yes I know, I was pregnant, but I only gained 14lbs with the pregnancy. I have worked long and HARD to lose the weight and I still have 70lbs to lose before I'll reach my goal weight.

With all of that in mind, why--after so long on the healthy track--do I STILL hate exercising? You would think that by now it would be like second nature to me. But, it's not!

I gulp down 8-10 servings of water a day, each 5 servings of fruits & veggies, watch my carb intake and try my hardest to avoid as many sweets as I possibly can (not always successful with that one). All of that is EASY for me after all this time, but that darn exercise habit avoids me like a disease.

Anyway, I did FORCE myself onto my treadmill (I hate that thing) for 30 mins this morning and my yoga mat is calling my name. I guess I better go use it before I decide to ignore its pleas.

I hope that you have a productive and healthy day!

Lots of exciting announcements!

Here it is!! This is the brand new cover for A Midnight Infatuation and I couldn't be happier with how it turned out. This cover took a week of hard work on the part of my cover artist and a lot of decisions on my part. We changed, tweaked, rearranged and added numerous things to the cover to get it just right.

This wonderful new book now has a release date also. On October 1, 2007, A Midnight Infatuation will begin selling from the publishers website!! I think that date suits this book perfectly. What better than a Vampire & Werewolf story in the month of October?

Lastly on the subject of this book, A Midnight Infatuation received its first book review this morning. You can check it out by visiting my site at Don't forget to check out the book's MySpace page and add yourself as a friend at .

Now for the last announcement of today. My parenting book, Toddler Logic, is now available for purchase through I know that a lot of people feel more comfortable ordering from the popular Amazon than from the publisher's site so here you go! Toddler Logic on Amazon

I hope that everyone is having a great week!

Review & MySpace

I now have the review for Toddler Logic: 50 Things That Your Toddler Wants You to Know up on my website. You can check it out here If you are looking for a wonderful, professional, friendly and quick book reviewer, then definitely check out Mind Fog Reviews! They were so great to work with and I'll certainly be working with them again in the future.

On another note, A Midnight Infatuation now has its own MySpace page. Stop by and check it out! As soon as the book cover is completed I'll be adding it as the avatar. For now, the bleeding roose seemed like a fitting photo.

I've been dealing with a migraine all day so there's no update on the Authors Resources page yet. It took enough for me to stare at the computer screen long enough to do the stuff I've already done today--myspace, book reviews, this blog post, etc. Anyway, I promise that I will get it done soon, so keep an eye out! :-)

Happy Labor Day!

Wow, I can't believe that it's September already. Halloween will be here before I know it. The big girls are already sharing ideas for Halloween costumes. Sheesh!

On the professional front:
I currently have a great artist working on the cover for A Midnight Infatuation and I can't wait to see what she comes up with, just from my ideas. That puts this great book just one step closer to publication and I can't wait to share it with all of you!

As of this morning, Toddler Logic has its very first review. I'd like to thank Mind Fog Reviews for their professional and speedy review. I'll have the review up on my website for all to read by the end of tomorrow. So stop by and check it out!

Lastly, for right now anyway, I wanted to share a new page that will be added to my website over the next day or two....... Author Resources!! This new page will have numerous resources listed that are helpful to any author. I'm working on it so be on the lookout!

Lots of new and exciting things are on the horizon so check in often!

Have a great day!
