For the memory drives, I partnered with a company called USB Memory Direct who supplied these awesome TAC themed ones just for me. I used one to back up all my books, and I couldn't believe how fast it ran. The folks at USB Memory Direct have another giveaway going on right now. You can enter that RIGHT HERE to win a box of Halloween Themed Goodies in honor of the #31DaysofHorror.
I can't believe it, but TEN AFTER CLOSING is now out! It's been a long road from when I started this book to today. I'm so excited to share Winny's and Scott's stories. with you!

So, it's now September 1st, and TEN AFTER CLOSING comes out on September 4th, which is crazy to me. I can't even believe the day is here. I know many of you reading this are writers too, so you know how long this process is. (Just to give those of you who don't write a feel, I started this book in January of 2015, and it was done by July of that year. I did an intensive revision period in winter 2016, so it was ready to submit by then. Of course there were more edits after we sold it to Sky Pony, but you get the picture.)
To celebrate the culmination of this long road, I'll be doing a series of appearances in the coming months, some in CT but not all, so keep your eyes open for info.
For now, here are the dates I have nailed down for sure:
I'd LOVE to see YOU there.

Sometimes, in the life of a book, the publisher decides to go back to the drawing board on the cover concept, even if the book hasn't been released yet. And that's what happened to my book, TEN AFTER CLOSING. I loved my old cover, but I LOVE my new cover. The artist is Kevin Tong, and he's FABULOUS!
So, here it is, the new cover for TEN AFTER CLOSING.

I thought my dreams came true when I was accepted into Pitch2Publication in 2016 (I worked with the amazing Rebecca Faith Heyman) and signed with my rockstar agent, Dr. Uwe Stender. Now they've REALLY come true because, thanks to my agent and #TeamTriada, I just sold my debut novel, a Young Adult Thriller, to Sky Pony Press! Editor Alison Weiss has worked on some fabulous projects already (including another TriadaUS book, TIMEKEEPER by Tara Sim), and now I get to work with her on
TEN AFTER CLOSING. I am so thankful, so excited, and my mind is still a little blown. (More than a little.)
You can see this announcement in Publishers Weekly right here.
Look here for more news as we approach publication in Spring 2018! (It's going to be here before we know it!)
