2018 Year in Review

Before the whirlwind of last minute shopping, holiday parties, and eggnog chugging commence, I wanted to take a moment to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and well wishes for an amazing New Year.
2018 was more than I could have imagined it would be less than 12 months ago. I knew as the clock struck midnight that there were some big changes in store, but I really had no clue exactly what would happen or the ripple effect it would have.  It's been a very revealing year.
I won't go through the entire list of events, but if you've read anything I've posted this year, you already know the gist of it.  January I got bronchitis, which was the jumping off point to nearly 40lbs of weigh loss this year! Super excited about that and looking forward to continuing the trend in 2019.
In February, I encountered several life changing/affirming events.  There was me hitting the big 4-0 on the 8th and legally going back to my maiden name of Miller. Then my son became a legal adult …

Friday Five - Taking Chances...and some other news

I don't know about you, but this week has flown by! I put myself in a social media time out this week to focus on my writing and, low and behold, I ended up kicking some serious writing ass! I wrote over 13,000 words in 4 days! Yes...FOUR. DAYS! Not only that, but in that writing I finished LOVE SHAKEN!! It's the 2nd novella in the LOVE IN A BAR series.

This week's blog post is packed with more info than a cornucopia with goodness!

So before I get to this week's #fridayfive I thought I would - 1- do a cover reveal for LOVE SHAKEN and give you the book description and 2-give you a life update.  Then I'll get down to business on your top 5 questions about this week's topic: TAKING CHANCES (the book, not like actually taking chances, though I did take a chance in writing it and other life stuff lol)

Oh, and read to the end to find out about my Thanksgiving book sale!!!

So let's begin shall we....

LOVE SHAKEN coming soon!!

Friday Five - Playing with Fire

Happy Friday!!! This cold Michigan weather has me wishing I had a warm fireplace to curl up next to. Give me a good book (or a chick flick) and a hot cup of coffee with some Irish Creme in it and I'd be a super happy girl.  As it is, I'm bundled up in my sweatpants and a hoodie, staring out my office window at the cold day and dreading having to be out in the temps later tonight.  Though it is for a great reason - our local varsity football team is in the Regional Play-off game tonight so I gotta go out and show my #royalpride! I'm bummed my kiddo has been sidelined most of the season with a knee injury, especially because it's his #seniorseason, but I am so proud that he still puts his heart and soul into showing his support to his football brothers and goes to practice every day to encourage them and help where he can. Definitely a proud momma.

Before I get all into #braggingmommode let me redirect to today's #fridayfive...though I will segue it by saying I know…

Friday Five - Finding Home

Happy Friday!!! I can't believe it is November already! This year, for real, just wow!  
This month I am SUPER busy with NaNoWriMo - otherwise known as National Novel Writing Month.  For the last few years I've been participating in this event, and it's really helped keep me moving forward when my writing has stalled at times.  The goal of NaNoWriMo is to write 50,000 (yes 50 THOUSAND) words during the month of November....roughly just under 1,700 a day.  That is actually really doable, but it takes time and focus and discipline - all things that I lack sometimes.
So while working this month on my next few books, finishing touches on LOVE SHAKEN and beginning to write ANOTHER SHOT AT LOVE, I thought this week's Friday Five would be great if I went back to the the book that started this life of being a published author.
So here are the top 5 questions I get asked aboutFINDING HOME (and if you don't have it already, click the title link to get it excl…
