First, how was everyones summer? Good? Short? Long? Mine was busy. My son learned to walk and our house has turned crazy. As far as books go, Family Business is finished!
Edited and ready for public reading...no.
But it soon will be. With the help of my beta readers and my amazing writing group, Family Business will be on shelves by the end of fall. Hopefully. Unless Abigail and her friends decide to up and change things on me.
And in other news, I have a new series out. Black Hole was a side project that came about because I wanted to write a realistic story about nerds. Black Hole has no end planned. I'm just going to keep writing issues of it until the story runs out. I'm excited about this new series because it is so different from The Family Trilogy.
Right now, the first issue is up on Wattpad and I'm curious to see how it will do. If you want to check it out, head on over to Wattpad and have a read. If you want more information on Black Hole, just click the buttons at the top of the page!
Also available on Wattpad is the first five chapters of Family Secrets. For those of you who haven't read it yet, take a look and if you like it, grab the full book on Amazon and Kobo.

Considering my last post was of June last year, I should probably explain. I recently started a family and I have a wonderful little boy who occupies a lot of my time. He is such a good baby, though, and I am still able to get some writing done. Last week I finally got past a huge roadblock in Family Business. A huge gun fight involving dozens of people. It was driving me so crazy that I drew pictures and mapped it out, and it worked like a charm. Now with that part behind me, the rest of the book is flowing rather nicely.
Between bottles and diaper changes, I buckle down and write, sometimes with my little man on my lap. I'm really hoping to have Family Business out by summer, and I have to take advantage of all the naps my little guy has right now, because in a few short months, the sun will be shining and he will be crawling around like crazy.

It's been a while, but I'm back and working hard. After a long winter and busy holidays, I'm back to writing and promoting The Family Trilogy.
Book one, Family Secrets, is rolling along with sales. I have a few book signings I’m lining up in the next couple months, and I will get those details out as soon as I finalize them.
Book two, Family Business, is coming along nicely. I can't wait until the novel is finished and I can share the next part of Hunt and Abigail's adventures with all of you! There are some juicy scenes in Family Business that have me really excited, and they have been a blast to write. Also, I have the cover almost done and as soon as I have that, I will post if for you guys. So far, it looks AMAZING.
Moving forward, I hope to have a blog post for you guys once or twice a week, and of course the most recent updates on the Facebook page. As always, if you have any questions about writing, my books, or anything really, please ask me!
Family Secrets is availble here: http://tinyurl.com/n8u92z8
Thanks for reading!

I had my first book signing for Family Secrets and it couldn't have gone better! I sold about 55 books in the couple hours. It was a bit nerve-wracking at first, I will admit, but after signing a few books and talking to some people and answering questions, I felt very confident.
It was an interesting experience, too. Seeing my book leave in the hands of strangers, i felt like a proud, but nervous, parent. I wanted to shout "take care if it" when people left. I guess that goes away in time, or maybe it doesn't, I'll just have to write more books and do more signing to find out!
The book signing went so well that the store wants me to do another signing in September. So, if you're around on September 7th, stop by Chapters on Wellington to get a signed copy of Family Secrets.
As for the people who came out to the first book signing, thank you! Your support is very much appreciated. Stop by on September 7th and see me, and let me know how you liked the first book! Also, I may be able to answer some questions about book two: Family Business, for those who are curious.
That's all for now! Look for new blog posts every Tuesday! They'll keep you more informed about the success of Family Secrets, and the progress of Family Business! And, as always, post a comment below or stop by the Facebook page at 'The Family Trilogy' and leave a note there!
