The Creatura Series #ColoringBook will be on sale on...

Hi guys!

I'm back with coloring book publishing news! I've formatted, reformatted, and proofed several digital copies and prints, and I'm finally happy with the end product. I'm happy to announce that I've chosen a publishing date for The Creatura Series Official Coloring Book. YAY! Below are pictures of my proof copies. I'm very happy about releasing this book project. It's something new for me, so it makes it all the more exciting.

What can you expect to find inside?

This book started off as a basic coloring book, but after formatting it, I've made it into a very easy to follow comic/short story/coloring book of sorts. A lot of details have been left out, but the overall feel of the story and the main plot is told through scenes from all three books in The Creatura Series. Both Arnild Aldepolla, the line drawing illustrator, and I selected the scenes to help you follow the story line of the original books. The narration and dialogue, of course, are my doing. As with the book series, this coloring book is intended for readers of MatureYoung Adult books since it contains subject matter and drawings that may not be appropriate for young children; nothing graphic, of course, but I like to give fair warning to parents of young children.

When's the publishing date?

The coloring book will be available for purchase on Tuesday, July 4, 2017. And just so you know, the selling price on release week will be $6.99 USD. The price will go up to $8.99 thereafter. I really hope you love it as much I do. Huge thanks and hugs to artist Arnild C. Aldepolla for making this project a reality.


Utopia Con 2017 Pics + Giveaway

Hello Readers!

If you follow me on other social media sites you probably saw I was off in Nashville, Tennessee signing at Utopia Con 2017. Sadly,  it was the sixth and final year of this con and only the second time I attended. I saw old friends, made new ones, and met some very cool and incredible people. Finally meeting friends I'd only spoken to on social media was the best thing ever! I have some pictures to share with you...

Here I am with Peggy Martinez (left) Author and owner of Lit Cube. She's the sweetest thing ever to exist. I bought a pair of Elizabeth and Darcy dolls from her, and I can't wait to post pics on Instagram to show them to you... if I ever unpack.

The ever so lovely Cambria Hebert, best selling Author of #Nerd series, is so nice! I'd only spoken to her online. She sold out of book one, #Nerd, before I got to her.
*insert very sad face here*

Jennifer L. Armentrout (right), author of so many USA Today and NYT bestselling book series, was sitting right behind me at the Utopia Con Awards. She took home several well-deserved prizes. 
You may have heard of her book series: Lux, Titan, Dark Element, Covenant...

I got to meet Isaac Marion, NYT bestselling author of the Warm Bodies Series. He signed tons of books, did interviews, and hosted a live commentary while a bunch of us watched the movie adaptation of his first book, Warm Bodies. He made me laugh a lot during an interesting dinner conversation. I approve of his quirky personality and highly recommend you follow him on

Also, buy his books: The New Hunger, Warm Bodies, The Burning World.

Here I am with award winning author Tish Thawer (center) and my sister, Krystle (right), who I dragged along to help me at my table. Tish is so down to earth and beautiful inside and out. We talked till 2am after the awards after party.
You should follow her on Facebook and Twitter because I say so.

NYT Bestseller Amy Harmon was my neighbor during the signing events. We sat together at the Utopia Con Awards. Amy is sweet and humble and all around a beautiful person. She was so surprised to have won several awards. I wasn't too surprised she did. I mean, she's fabulous! 

Find Amy on Facebook and Twitter.

I left the con on Sunday morning, very early. I did manage to gather up some Utopia Con swag. You can enter for a chance to win below. International entires welcome. Thanks for stopping by!

The Creatura Series Coloring Book and Audiobooks Update

Hello Dear Readers!

I'm here today cheerful and ready to report to you latest progress of my projects. 

First off, it's my pleasure to announce that the Creatura Series will have its very own coloring book! I'm incredibly excited to have artist Arnild Aldepolla illustrate this project. He's such a gifted illustrator that it humbles me to have had him accept my offer to work together. Arnild is an up and coming illustrator who has worked on similar projects with other authors, such as Cameo Renae, Raye Wagner, and Martina Mcatee, to name few. Though no date is set for the release of the coloring book as of yet, I'll keep you informed on the progress.

As for the series audiobooks, I'm happy to announce that actress Daisy Guevara is already busy as a bee, producing the audio files for the series. I've had the pleasure of hearing a snippet, and I must say, I cannot wait for the final version to be completed. She's simply wonderful! Sadly, no release date yet for this project either. I know, I know... 

I'm inundated with projects this year, aren't I? I'll be honest, it's been a busy year for me and hard to keep up, but I'm trying my best to keep you informed. I try not to be a stranger, but life happens and well, you know how that is... However, if you really want to hear more from me, why not follow me on FacebookTwitter, or Instagram? I'll be ever so very happy to see you there.

Talk to you soon,

Creatura Translation Underway

Read it for FREE! 

Hello Wonderful Readers!

I hope that 2017 is treating you incredibly well. I know I haven't been around my blog in a while, and there's a reason for it: I've been a super busy bee! Home life, trips, family birthdays, the holidays, New Year's, and company have kept me on my feet, especially in the ladder part of 2016. Now that 2017 has opened it's door, a flurry of surprises have blown in. One of the projects and dreams/goals I'd long been hoping to jump in to is now becoming a reality. 

From the emails and social media messages I receive, along with face to face conversations, I've been asked over and over again if my books are available in Spanish. Until now, I'm sorry to say no, they are not. HOWEVER, that will soon change! 

I've employed the aide of a wonderful Spanish translator for the first book in the series, Creatura. The translation should be done with by late March, early April. Afterward, the editing and formatting process will begin. I have a lot of work ahead of me! Why? Well, for this project, I've decided to self-publish the Spanish version of Creatura, which means I get to do all the work. I'll have more news as to the estimated publication date as soon as the finished draft is in my hands.  

Thanks for reading, and thanks for following my journey in this book writing adventure.
