Bad News/Good News Part 3 and Final (Really!)

Image
  Last week I mentioned two pieces of good news (you can view the first piece of good news  here : https://fb.watch/8AHv8fjzf0/ and the second one here : https://fb.watch/8AIoO25jM1/). I also promised to share the third piece of good news. Y'all.  I. Am. Floored. Cause I have a FOURTH piece of good news! eep! But first things first! The good news I promised you last week. It's about not one but TWO of my books! It's a HUMUNGOUS book fair. Maybe one of the biggest in the world. It takes place in Europe. Maybe you've heard of it. What's this humungous book fair, you ask? Well, it's none other than the Frankfurt Book Fair! Yup!! You read that correctly!  Two of my books were selected to attend the Frankfurt Book Fair! I'm thrilled and honored and humbled and all sorts of excited to be invited to such a prestigious and world-renowned event.  Which books are at the fair? Well, I'm glad you asked! The first is Callie's Magical Flight , book one in the Unic

  So you may remember last week I spoke about my bad news. Y'all, I really dislike delays but sometimes it's inevitable.  And after this past weekend, where I took my daughter on a third college road trip, I realize how quickly time passes us by and the moments with family and loved ones are so important. We really need to cherish them every chance we get.  So while the bad news is disappointing, the good news trumps it for sure! Plus, I have not one , not two , but THREE pieces of good news!! The first piece of good news can be found here : https://fb.watch/8AHv8fjzf0/  Click the link. It's worth it. I promise!  Go on. Do it! I'll wait.... Wasn't that awesome?! Okay, maybe I'm a bit biased but I am really stinking proud of that. Here's the second piece of good news : https://fb.watch/8AIoO25jM1/ Ahhhhh!!!  Don't you just love it?!   So much hard work from many talented people. I'm so grateful.  Now, as for the third piece of good news, well I can&#

  Y'all, it's October. OCTOBER. What?! How? When? I'm floored. September passed in the blink of an eye.  But it's OCTOBER! Literally one of my most favorite months of the year! And I'm sooo excited to share the month with you! There's a lot coming, so grab a pumpkin spice latte and cozy up. It's going to be a wonderful time! First, I apologize that I've been MIA. Second, I have bad news. Third, I have good news.   About the MIA....September was a busy month. So busy. And I've been negligent to you, my friends. Thank you for sticking around and being patient with me. It seems the demands pull me in every direction and there's so little time for everything I need to do. I won't bore you with the details, just know that some days it takes everything I have in me just to keep my head above water. This leads me to my bad news. I've made the heart-wrenching decision to delay the publication of the last two unicorn books until 2022. There are a

To all my friends in the US, I hope you had a very happy Labor Day! To everyone else, I hope you've had a wonderful start to September! We spent our holiday catching up from a last-minute college road trip. On Friday we made the long drive to Ohio to tour two colleges, explore, enjoy lots of great food, and do some shopping! Sunday night we arrived home and slept! Monday was spent doing catch-up with laundry, yard work, and errands. Oh, the joys!  Somewhere in all of the chaos, I forgot to announce something very exciting!  Maribel's Windy Rescue , book 5 in the Unicorn Tales series is finally available!  As you may recall, there were some setbacks and a slight delay with this book. So I was really happy to finally get it out there into the world and straight into the hands of readers. If you have a young reader in your life who loves unicorns, magic, and adventure, be sure to grab a copy of Maribel's Windy Rescue for them now! A powerful unicorn. A threatening flood. Can

Slight Delay

  It has been a hot and very humid few weeks here but I'm not complaining! Summer is only here for such a short time, I'm enjoying every minute while I still can.  While it seems many places are full-swing into summer, we're already gearing up for back-to-school. In just three short weeks, my youngest will return to high school and my middle daughter will return to college. Since time was short, we took the opportunity to do the college road trip thing combined with a family vacation. Great memories were made and a fun time was had by all! As our vacation wrapped up, it was hard not to feel a bit melancholy at how the years pass by so quickly. Time flies, fast and furious. It stops for no one. Including me. Including deadlines. Which means there's a slight delay in Maribel's Windy Rescue. Instead of releasing this month as originally planned, Maribel will release in August. But, Nadia's True Colors is available now! If you haven't picked up your copy, it'

I hope you’ve all had a fantastic few weeks, and for those of you in the states, a fun and safe Fourth of July.   We celebrated the holiday with friends on the third. There was great food, great company, and even some homemade ice cream sandwiches. On the fourth, we went to see a massive firework display. It was so nice to get out and enjoy the day.   This past weekend my husband and I celebrated our 25 th wedding anniversary. While we couldn’t travel abroad as we had hoped (and planned for two years) we did have a wonderful time hiking in the mountains of Roanoke, Virginia.   The celebrations don’t end there though!   Today I’m excited to celebrate another very special occasion with you. It’s a cover reveal! But it’s not for one of my books. Instead, this one is for my long-time friend, T.P. Jagger. I’m so happy to cheer for T.P. as he has shown so much enthusiasm for my books over the years. It’s an honor to celebrate with him today! I hope you enjoy the celebration and reveal, too

Nadia's True Colors - Release!

  The day is finally here! Nadia's True Colors, book four in the Unicorn Tales series is available to readers!!!!! Eep!! But first things first. There's three things I need to tell you about. 1 - a bit about Nadia 2 - free book offer 3 - Amazon gift card winner 1 - I've mentioned before that there was a story behind this story and now it's time to finally share a bit about that. Back in the summer of 2019, immediately after drafting Elle's Secret Wish, I wrote the first draft of Nadia. As with the entire Unicorn Tales series, each book had been outlined and summarized since 2018. But with these two books, in the weeks leading up to their drafts, I was caring for my very ill bichon frise of nearly 14 years. Shortly after I finished writing Nadia, my dog crossed the rainbow bridge.  It was a heartbreaking time for me and the last thing I wanted to do was edit the books I had been working on while I had cared for my fur baby in her final days. About a year later, with
