Book Launch for My Weird Merfolk Book

I had another book launch party and it was MAGICAL. I love sharing a space with my friends and family and supporters. It was a blast. We had some cookies (that totally matched the book cover, because I’m nothing if not extra), some wine (provided by my mom), and a playlist that I managed to…

Quest for Author Copies that Ended Up on a Ranch in Kansas

When I was filming an unboxing reel for the copies of A Mean Piece of Water (out Dec 9th), it became apparent very quickly that I had a box full of cowboy novels that I most certainly did not write. Don’t get me wrong, all of my books so far take place in Oklahoma and…

Fostering Relationships Between Indie Authors and Indie Booksellers

So, I wrote another book…

Camp Nanowrimo was a huge success for me. I got through my first sloppy draft of a book about lake merfolk and their local friends who have to fight a giant demon octopus that a cult has summoned. Definitely feels on brand and I’ve already sent it to beta readers which is really exciting. After…
