It’s been two weeks since I’ve posted. We spent a week in Edinburgh and had a great time. However, while there, I caught a cold. By the time we got back to London, I was officially sick. It’s been ages since a cold has knocked me on my buttocks. Last Friday, I didn’t even get out of bed. I tried reading, but ended up sleeping the day away. I think I’m finally on the mend, but the better half is now sick. I’m switching gears from being the patient to playing nurse. I’m pretty much exhausted.
During the past couple of weeks, I’ve continued to work, here and there. I’m working with my editor on The Miracle Girl, my sixth novel. Oddly enough, even though I have been under the weather, I’m enjoying editing this novel more than I normally do. Maybe it’s the cold medicine.
In addition to editing, I’m also promoting two books right now. A Woman Lost, my debut novel, and Marionette, my young adult novel, are free on Amazon. I wish I could blame my cold for listing both novels for free at the same time, but I planned the sales some time ago and I must have crossed my wires at some point. The plan was to list A Woman Lost next month. Ooops.
Here’s the information on the books.
A Woman Lost is free from March 25-29th.
Despite’s Lizzie’s insistence that her mom’s antagonism does not bother her, Lizzie distances herself from her mom and the entire family. When her brother, Peter, calls her out of the blue to announce he’s getting married, Lizzie’s entire life changes drastically. Peter’s fiancée wants to bring the lesbian outcast back into the family. Will this desire cause Lizzie to lose everything dear to her?
Sarah, Lizzie’s girlfriend, is ecstatic about this change in Lizzie’s personal life. Sarah, the hopeless romantic, wants it all, including settling down with the fiercely independent Lizzie.
Can Lizzie be tamed? And can she survive her family and all of their secrets?

Marionette is free March 25th and 26th.
At the age of seventeen, Paige Alexander had it all planned. She wrote a letter, sat in the bath, and slit her wrists. Her plan failed.
Her best friend, Alex, is dead.
Paige can’t get over her twin sister blaming her for a tragic event in their past.
Colorado is in the midst of voting on lesbian and gay rights and Paige is terrified to come out of the closet, fearful for her life.
Many people in Paige’s life are keeping secrets from her. Will she piece everything together before it’s too late?
In this gripping first-person narrative, a young college student grapples with more than first loves or coming of age. In a world filled with homophobia, suicidal feelings, and a dysfunctional family, Paige cuts her wrists in an attempt to free herself from the crazy life that’s all she’s ever known.
Could there be new lessons in store for Paige? With the help of her girlfriend, friends, and a compassionate therapist, can Paige find the safe space she needs to heal, grow, and cut her strings?
