Back in Action

I have been down and out in the action of my blog for quite a while. I apologize for not posting anything in so long. A lot has happened these past few months though that has caused much excitement for me and the fans. :) First, The book was released and took off like a race horse. I sold hundreds of copies within the first couple of months. Next, I had a book signing at our local hastings and was very pleased to hear from the employees that I sold more copies than any other author that has had a book signing there. It's great to feel so much love. Then, As I was working on the second book I was reaching out to bands trying to find one that would allow me to use them in the book, just a cameo appearance for a concert and one of my favorite bands of all time agreed. CREED!!!! They are a wonderful group of guys and I am so totally grateful that they agreed to be in my book. Love you guys!! After that, I had some trouble connecting with the book, the concert scene seemed to drain me of inspiration for awhile. After a couple of weeks I had a dream that really set me to writing again. A masquerade ball, modern, not old timey. Quick paced dancing like dancing with the stars. LOL! It has sort of a techno feel to it. More inspiration has followed since then and it seems like the book is writing itself. The ebook of my first book Celtic Rose is set free today and tomorrow and will be again after Christmas, December 28th through the 30th for those who happen to receive a kindle for Christmas. Hee hee. The way things are going now it looks like I'm going to be ready to send the second book to the publisher by the end of this year. My goal is to send it in New Years Eve. That way it will be ready for editing the beginning of the year and hopefully will be out by spring. I'm still set on having a release date for St. Patty's day. :D My life's dream is to hear great things about my books and maybe, possibly, if I pray really, really hard to have it on the big screen. A girl can dream can't she. lol Thanks for being so patient with me and I hope you enjoy the read. God Bless!

Finally Finished!

I'm finally finished with the rewrite and have sent it in to the publisher. :) On the publisher's birthday no less! Now I can finally get started on the second book, while I wait on news for the first. Sure hoping it'll be back out very soon. I've already had some written in the second book but to make it match the first I'm going to have to rewrite what I had in 3rd person as well. No worries though! I wasn't actually that far in the second book so it shouldn't take long. I've never been much for waiting, I do it, but it doesn't mean I like it. lol So the best way to avoid the wait is to keep busy. I'm going to get busy on the second book so the wait won't drive me crazy. :)

Valentine Surprise!

I received a message from Goodreads today pretty much telling me what was going on with my book. I'd never received one before so I checked it out. To my huge surprise there were 6 ratings on my book and they were all 5 stars. I couldn't have been happier. Some people were either able to get it before it came off the market for editing or they received it from me, but either way they loved it and I am so excited. I've been hard at work for the past week trying to get it complete. I should be done by the end of the week and I'll send it straight to the publisher as soon as I save it for the last time. It would be great to have it come back out on St. Patrick's Day because it would match my story, but that all depends on how quickly everything can get done on it.

My computer has become a major frustration with me today.The power cord has a short in it or something because even though it's plugged in it goes to battery power and the screen dims. I get the cord bent just right and it comes back on but it's a constant fight to keep it that way. I really dread the cord going out because that means I have to move to the desktop, which is vastly uncomfortable seating wise, and slower than Methuselah. I'm tired of fighting the cord so I'm going to get off here and give it a break. I'll pick up on the edits tomorrow. Hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine's day and I will post more when I have more news. :)

Review of a Wonderful Book, by a Wonderful Author.

A Lady of the Realm (House of DeDe)
by Sharon E. Mamolo

I couldn't put this story down. It was well written and very entertaining. I loved the characters. Sasha is definitely my favorite of the guys, even though Malachi has sure found a place in my heart. Bethany is my kinda girl, strong willed and yet sweet when she wants to be. I've always loved paranormal romance and I definitely got my fix in this wonderful story. I can't wait to read the next one.

I'm not very good at writing reviews, I just write what I think about the stories that I read. I truly enjoyed this story and hope to show others to wonderful new authors that they can read and hopefully enjoy as much as I do. :)
This is the first of hopefully many reviews I will be posting. As I said there won't be much to my reviews besides whether I like it or not, but if you look up the books there are many other reviews on them that give more detail about the book and that way you can see others that like or even love it so you don't have to take my word for it. ;) Happy Reading!

Latest News

I'm working on the rewriting of the book. It's coming along really well. Since I have time now I will hopefully be done really soon. I'm making a lot of changes. It will still have the same story line but I'm giving the beginning a little more of a hook. Others who have read it said the beginning was really slow but once they got into it they couldn't put it down, so I'm fixing that little hiccup in the flow of my book. Hopefully after that everyone will be hooked from the very beginning. :) Talking with the Muse as we speak. lol So I will be going now so I can put thought to paper. More soon.

Slowin' Down

Things have finally slowed down. I just graduated college December 4th with my Bachelor's degree. Have to finish out this week and take a test at the end of December then I am done! :) I can't wait. I'll be more able to work on my books then. The release date for my 2nd edition came around and I even sold a copy in Europe, but then they had to be pulled due to a review from a wonderful friend of WCP. She made some suggestions so I am rewriting the book in third person and making some changes. This will hopefully be the last time then I can have my 3rd and final edition released.... hopefully. o_O I'll be posting more now that I have time, and I will let everyone know what's happening from now on.
Welcome newcomers to my blog. I hope you enjoy reading about my new experiences and about my 2nd and 3rd books. I'm going to be writing on all of my blogs from now on so that when people find one of the those I had stopped on they can just read the info there instead of having to jump to one of the others. No worries I only have three. The one I first started on, wordpress, this one about me, and then one other blogger about the book series Celtic Rose. It's still a work in progress but now that I have time it will develop much quicker now. :D

Official Release Date!

I know I haven't written anything in quite a while, but I have been very busy with edits, school, church, raising my wonderful son and living life to the fullest. lol I finally have some news to write about. My book Celtic Rose, the second edition, is set to be released 9/15/11. The cost will be $5.99 for the e-book and $11.99 for the print book. So much better than $30 like the first edition. lol I'm extremely excited, and bouncing in my chair. I may fall out of it (again). ;)
When the book comes out I will have a section in my facebook author page that will hold deleted scenes that were interesting, but not essential to the plot of the book. I hope that readers will be interested in learning more after reading the book. I have character blogs to tell more background about the characters and where they came from so feel free to browse all the information from this blog and the old one to get more information if you're interested. Have a blessed day!
