Long-awaited release of SNOW FRIGHT!

Well, friends. Today is the day. It is the long-awaited release of Snow Fright!! I couldn't be more excited!

Some of you have been long-time fans of the Scarily Ever Laughter series and have waited since 2016 to see this book's publication. Others are new friends and are just learning about the series. To me, this book has lived in my heart forever. Gnawing away like worms in a corpse. Eating me alive from the inside out. Haha! I jest. I love this story. It has been a long journey though and I'm so glad to finally be able to say that Snow Fright is here. For good.

At the conference I attended earlier this month in Vegas, they spoke a lot about relationship building. Not just with fans, friends, and family but with our business partners, work-for-hire, editors, and illustrators. I didn't realize just how important those relationships were until I walked through the refiner's fire the last few years.

When I put a call out for illustrators, I had no idea I'd receive …

Vegas and Great Kids Books for Christmas Books

Last week I spent four days in Vegas. If I'm being honest, I never thought I'd travel to the west coast. But there was a big writer's conference and so many of the friends I'd made at the Edinburgh conference were going to be there. So, of course, I jumped at the chance of a reunion.

It was definitely worth my while! The conference was fantastic! Seeing my friends was really such a bonus. Being a writer is so solitary, I often forget how lonely it gets. As an extrovert (uncommon in the writing community), I really am fueled by relationships. I feel so refreshed and rejuvenated, ready to tackle more books!

As a result of that conference, I've been considering expanding the Scarily Ever Laughter series. So many readers have requested a book from Ethan's point of view and I'd love to give that to them! If you haven't read the whole series, now is a great time to catch up! As a reminder, you can preorder the ebook of SNOW FRIGHT! The book launches next week, …

It's November! It's also Veteran's Day in the US.

As a thank you for those who've served, I've put two of my books on sale today. Actually, it's not a sale, they're free! So, if you haven't already done so, grab a free ebook of Doomy Prepperand Callie's Magical Flight.When you've finished reading, I'd love for you to leave a review. Reviews help new readers find my books.

I'm so, so super excited to announce that SNOW FRIGHT is finally available for preorder! Oh man, this book...boy...it has truly had a second chance at life. If you've been following my journey over the last three years, you'll remember that my publisher closed just days after the book launched in 2016. It had some great reviews in Popsugar, Buzzfeed, Girls Life Magazine, and Hypable to name a few. To see it die such an untimely death was heartbreaking. Snow Fright deserved better.

It's been a long journey to get this book back into publication. As I worked on e…
