I’m About To Publish A Book For The First Time Since 2011


So I’ve got a book coming out at the end of the month. Yep, seriously: For the first time in five years I’ve managed to finish a book. I’m sorry it’s not a Werewolves in Love book, but I’m just absurdly, pathetically relieved that I can still do it. I was very worried that I’d …

No matter where you’re going, half the trip is just getting out of L.A. The 101 was packed at all times, day and night, and so was the 210. It wasn’t until Pasadena that the traffic let up, and not until they dropped down to I-10 that Twist could finally open the throttle. Then they …

Vulvas and Yes I’m Writing

I was disappointed in this post (Read This If You Have a Vulva) – really all it says is, possessing female plumbing makes you very susceptible to UTIs but everyone in possession of female plumbing already knows that, even if they’ve never experienced a UTI themselves. Funny story (well, I think it is) – there …

On The Road

I’m currently in Grapevine, Texas, at Great Wolf Lodge. Sharing a hotel room (note: not a suite) with two 13YO girls. It’s okay – they’re off on their own most of the day, and I have wine and noise canceling headphones for when they’re in the room. And I’m writing. The Endless Scene is about …

HAPPPPPPpy New Year!

novel won't write itself

Goodbye and good riddance 2014, don’t let the door hit you on the way out. Hello 2015, I have a good feeling about you! I didn’t finish the rock star contemporary by the end of the year as I’d hoped. I was doing really well til I ran into the abdominal surgery in July. I’m …

Izzy black and smoking hot

Just plotting right now. Nick’s an asshole. No matter what I write, he still ends up being an asshole. TJ can totally handle it, but it’s gonna take a while for her to fix him. Also, I don’t know if I’ve written this out loud before, but I’ve decided to quit second guessing my plotting …

No Sebastian Bach references. The 80s are sacred to me but I do have to allow for readers who are younger and older and, honestly, I think mentioning too many brands or bands from specific eras can date a book very quickly. But still. The heroine has phenomenal hair.

Just Write The Story You Want To Write

So I’m writing the rock star story but I’m also plotting Nick and TJ. (I am terrified. Have I told y’all I’m terrified? Because I am. Terrified.) And I have a pretty good idea of the plot but there are things I’m thinking of that cause me to second guess myself — “Oh I can’t …

If You’ve Been a Beta Reader, And Even If You Haven’t, You Might Like This

My buddy Robin Rotham wrote this poem in December 2012 and I’d never seen it. She tweeted about it tonight when some people were talking about losing documents or big chunks of manuscript. The Night Before Deadline ’Twas the night before deadline, when all through the land, Not a muscle was stirring but those in …

All About #MyWritingProcess – The Blog Tour

Thanks to Kate Davies for inviting me to join her on this writing process blog tour!   NOTE: OMG y’all!  I’m writing this on Sunday night (naturally, because it has to go up on Monday), and we’re watching Supernatural. The episode is “The Monster At The End of This Book” and it’s where they first …
