Free books, sequels, and craft fairs, oh my!

Writing news!

My, my, has it really been this long?

School's back in session and I've managed to spend a decent amount of time on writing this month! I continue to juggled several projects at once, but the plan is to finish a project and launch it into the book world so I can focus more on the others! I have so many books in my head. One of my biggest fears is that I won't have enough time in my life to write them all. That fear drives me, it pushes me to steal every spare moment so I can write a little more.

On September 26 and 27, I'll be at the first ever Garfield Arkansas craft fair. It runs from 10am-6pm Friday and Saturday. Besides my books, I'll also have baked goods! So if you're local and love a good fair, come on out and see me!

Episode 4 is FREE today and tomorrow!

I've been extremely pleased by how well-received my Cassandra books have been. I simply love these stories and love Cassandra! Perfect for the pre-teen in your life or the young at heart!

Episode 4: Fever Pitch

Cassandra Jones is finally finding her place in her new school. She joins a band and discovers a love for music. Just when she's making her bid to be the best clarinet player, she comes down with a rather unexpected disease.

I am thrilled to finally, finally announce the third book in the PERILOUS series. Working title is PRICELESS (which could very well change), and I don't have a release date yet. But I've just signed the contract and will be working very closely with my publisher to get this book out as soon as possible. It is by far my favorite book yet in the series.

I'll keep you posted!

New Endeavors (and free ebook!)

Episode 1 of Cassandra Jones has launched!

And just for you, just through Friday, the book is free!

This is one of my favorite projects yet. Meet Cassandra. This fifth grader is as typical, kind, selfish, and loveable as any other ten-year-old can be. Written for kids ages 8+, Cassandra Jones would love to become a member of your family! Check out the link below for more information!

What's special about Cassandra? Absolutely nothing. She's as ordinary as any other fifth grader. And yet her ordinary life is riddled with hilarious and sometimes heart-breaking mishaps as she guides herself through the world of pre-teens on the brink of adulthood. 

Cassandra Jones is the new girl at school. She's been uprooted from her beloved state of Texas and relocated to the hillbilly Ozarks of Springdale, Arkansas. She wonders if she will like her teacher or if she will have any friends. She can only hope school won't be harder than it was back home. 

She doesn't expect to have two close friends, and even worse, two friends that don't like each other. As she tries to make a spot for herself, will she keep her friendships intact?

Into the Kitchen: A Food blog

As I'm searching for the right company to publish the cookbook I'm working on, someone in the publishing agency suggested I start a food blog to help me gain credibility as a food writer. It's not like I really have time for that, but it sounded like a good idea.

So I started one! And since I really do experiment in the kitchen on an almost daily basis, it's not that much more work than I already do. The hardest part is remembering to take pictures along every step of the way!

If you need dinner ideas or just like to see what creativity I'm cooking up in the kitchen, come and visit my food blog! Click here!
And finally, I have two more book signings this month. Friday, May 15, I'll be at the Springdale Harps on Sunset from about 4:30-6:30pm and Saturday, May 16 from about 1-3pm. A week later, on the anniversary of the Joplin tornado, I'll be in Joplin raising money through book sales. ALL PROCEEDS FROM BOOKS BOUGHT AT THE JOPLIN SIGNING WILL BE DONATED TO JOPLIN. I'll be there Friday, May 22 and Saturday, May 23, around the same times.

In addition, proceeds from all books purchased through my website on May 22 will be donated to Joplin.

Thank you for your support!

Food Blog Coming Up!

I got another encouraging response from an agent today in regards to my cookbook. He said it is a good idea but that I have no credibility as a food writer. (I guess all my reviews on tripadvisor don't count ha ha.)

Since I have no intentions of joining a restaurant or imploring the Food Network to sign me up, I asked him what I could do to change that. He very kindly and enthusiastically suggested I start a food blog. His idea was a Brazilian food blog, since the cookbook is Brazilian, but I thought, I can do better than that.

If you're on this blog, you know I'm a writer. Everyone knows I'm a writer. But what you may not know is that I am an avid cook. I'm very particular as a cook; I very rarely make the same thing twice because I find something so incredibly exciting and fulfilling in making new things.

And making a food blog would be rather easy for me. Every Sunday I prepare my exciting weekly menu, and I take pictures of my food (failures included) almost every day.

The hard part, as the kind agent reminded me, will be getting followers. He didn't give me an exact number, but I'm betting I'd need at least a thousand before anyone would notice me or consider me an authority on food.

So watch for it. Soon I will have a new blog up to go along with this one. It's going to need a name. Any suggestions? If I pick your suggestion, I'll send you an free ecopy of The Extraordinarily Ordinary Life of Cassandra Jones Episode 1, releasing on May 17!
