Memories of You
And of Course…
Shutter will be released on Friday, 2/22! Yay! I am so excited about this novella. This will be my 3rd novella and 3 is my favorite number! As I’ve said before, Antonio is a photographer and Lucy is an artist, so I am going to see if I can bring out the best of both those characters with some awesome giveaways. If you’ve seen my giveaways in the past you know I like to create! And that hasn’t changed. One of my favorite giveaways will be an autographed copy of my photobook Dreamscapes. Dreamscapes is a pictorial I created from my many travels around the United States. I also have a collection of themed bookmarks titled Bookmarks Across America! Even in the technology age, I still think bookmarks are necessary! And I will have trading cards again! Don’t miss your chance to enter and win some cool stuff that is an expression of Antonio’s vision of the world around him.
Seattle is the setting. I LOVE the west coast and have felt for years that I was destined to visit Seattle somehow, as if something important was waiting for me there. In my mind’s eye I journeyed there and found Antonio and Lucy! My goal for the characters of Antonio and Lucy was to evoke an awakening of sorts. Each time I send my characters on their personal journeys down the rabbit hole, my wish is for them to emerge better somehow as human beings. I found them be enjoyable, even funny at times and even choked up a few times. Love is nothing but a spin on the Ferris Wheel of emotions. And Antonio and Lucy helped me experience that.
MVP is Complete!
My sequel to For the Love of the Game, MVP, is complete! Once I found my groove and delved back into Morgan and Seth’s lives, I have to admit it was a lot of fun. My goal was to continue their journey in the most realistic and nurturing way possible for the couple. I must admit I miss them after I finished writing! Seth’s character kind of snuck up on me and I had to resist having a crush on him. Lol. I think he and Morgan are complementary characters and I appreciate all who contacted me and my publisher, inquiring about a next phase for these two. Their landscape gets bigger and we see how they blend two very different worlds together. Old supporting characters return, a few new ones come in and pop out immediately with their own stories.

And of Course…
The Artist’s Studio has scheduled author visitors through June! Every Friday an author gives insight on their latest projects and share a bit of themselves. It’s nice to see who’s behind the curtain sometimes. Have a question you always wanted to ask an author? Send it to me! I don’t mind mixing up the interview questions. The format I use is concise and authors don’t get a headache when they complete it. (I hope!) Lol.
Think you might want to chat with me on release day? Take the poll on my site! I am trying to see what venue and time would be good for those who want to connect on Friday, 2/22.
Until Next Time
