I've been neglectful again... but this time I have a pretty good reason--or should I say reasons.
I'm roughly 1 week from my official release of my debut novel, CARVED IN DARKNESS and things are getting crazy! I mean one-armed-juggler-in-a-three-ring-circus kind of crazy. Between kids and husband, promoting the release while trying to write book #2 in the series (I'm approximately 60k words in!), I don't have time to breathe, much less blog, but I want to share my news so I've finally managed to grab a few minutes (It's 6am, I have school lunches to make and the kids are running around banshees, but whatever) to blog.
Over at Beth Groundwater's today! She's asked some fantastic questions about the book, my writing process and what keeps me sane. Beth writes the Claire Hanover gift basket designer series (A REAL BASKET CASE, 2007 Best First Novel Agatha Award finalist, TO HELL IN A HANDBASKET, 2009) and the RM Outdoor Adventures series starring river ranger Mandy Tanner (DEADLY CURRENTS, 2011, an Amazon bestseller, WICKED EDDIES, 2012). The 3rd book in both series will appear in 2013.

And don't forget to drop me a comment to say "hi"!
In other exciting news, If you happened to order a trade paperback of CARVED IN DARKNESS from Amazon (they've already sold out once and looks like they're about to do it again!), chances are you've already received your copy. I hope you're as happy with the finished copy as I am... if so, I'd be thrilled of you took a few minutes to rate CARVED and leave me a brief review. I'll even make it easy and leave the links!
For Barnes & Noble:
I also received a darn good review from Kirkus Review:

And do forget, I still answer writing problems! If you're a writer and stuck on your plot, give me a shout at:
