Wow! Where has the time gone? And so much has changed!
Greetings, Fire Enthusiasts! Are you enjoying the last of summer? Me? I'm ready for it to die. We're in the midst of triple-digits here in way-too-sunny Central California. I'm sure it will continue to be hot until Halloween, so yes, I'm ready for it to go away. Especially since our winters are mild here.
The reason why no one has heard much of me is because I have been busy querying agents since last November. My 5th novel is in great shape and beta-read. I just need to find an agent who agrees with me!
I could self-publish this one just like the rest, but would really rather not. I think it is the most commercial thing I've written, so until such a time as I find the door before me immoveable, I'm going to continue knocking and praying someone will open it and invite me inside. The story behind my writing career has been one of wanting to have no regrets, so I'm not going to play it safe. Hopefully the wait won't be a long one, but we'll see...
If you are wondering why I have posted a photo of my living room and my oldest son there at the top right, it's because he got married later that day, and we just renovated the house. (Note the carpet and dark walls and wave goodbye). Photos of the change below.
If you are new here, I am a paranormal author from central California. Dance on Fire is my edgy vampire series that explores whether a vampire can be used for good. If you follow the link you can score the first novel in the series free from Smashwords. If you do read it and want more you can get Flash Point and Infernal, books 2 and 3, respectfully. I also have Seeing Ghosts which is a paranormal w/ romance that has done well with readers. Book 5 - which I teased above - looks to be a women's fiction mystery with a dash of paranormal (But of course! It had to have some darkness to it!). The following is the blurb:
In 1956, film actress Allison Belle abandoned the glamour of Hollywood for Fresno, California, and an idyllic new life.
In 1959, she disappeared altogether.
Nearly sixty years later, real estate agent Joanna Johnson steps unsuspectingly into the old Belle house and a story long forgotten. A devastating personal event opens a hidden door into the actress's world, and a series of long-lost photographs begin to reveal secrets thought buried.
What happened to Allison?
What will happen to Joanna when she finds out?
Thanks again for stopping by.
We'll talk soon.
