NaNo Warm Up

So the word goal for NaNo Warm Up is 25,000 words

October 1st : Day 1

I only decided on my writing project after dinner. Good thing Im a planner. I have a few premises written out, some with an outline so I just chose one. It's been too long since I've written anything to be attached to a particular character or story which makes me a little sad.

The genre is romantic suspense, no title as of yet but here's the summary

NASCAR driver Liam McRae has just landed the Sprint Cup Championship title but his victory is overshadowed when his main competitor, Henry Reid’s car burst into flames.
The explosion is not an accident and the fact Liam threatened Henry before the race has him in serious trouble. Liam’s search for the real culprit brings him closer to Meeghan, Henry’s stepsister but the more he learns about the family, the more the evidence points to Meeghan. He has to trust the woman he has come to love and figure out who could be targeting them both.

SO, remember that super-awesome announcement I mentioned was coming later this week regarding me and Susan Dennard?

Well…we’re making it.

I won’t spoil the news here, so for more info head on over to:


Starkillers AvatarBasically, I couldn’t be more excited for this project/experiment, and think it’s going to be a TON of fun. Since taking TOG off FictionPress, I’ve kinda missed sharing WIPs online, and I’m just….so, so, so thrilled that we’re finally biting the bullet and sharing this series with you guys.

Books for August

Forget You

Pushing the Limits (Harlequin Teen)The Summer I Turned Pretty
Just ordered above books after reading the excerpts. Can't wait to start reading. I'm going through a YA phase and loving it.

Oh and the former Fictionpress Authors
1) Sarah Maas  Throne of Glass-  I think the  pic on the cover looks like Sarah don't you?
2) Tatiana Moore - 2nd book in KM series- Killing Monsters. I love the cover. Very Amateur sleuth-ish

One of our Own: Tatiana Moore's Killing Memories available on Amazon

The 1st book in the chicklit KM series titled Killing Memories by Tatiana Moore, a fellow FP writer,  is available for purchase on Amazon. From her blog, I know the books have gone through a huge overhaul and I've bought it, excited to see what's changed and what's stayed the same. Enough of my rambling check it out Amazon.

3 tips to making great book trailers

Book Trailers

The 1st trailer made me want to read FANG! I stopped on the 3rd book in the series.
Anyway, I'm definitely envious of writers who know how to play with media and create book trailers or character sketches and cover art.
Any ideas on places to start for a newbie?
