Writing Passion + Readers = Success

Of course I'm around writers all the time and each have different roads they have traveled to get published.

It's no secret that I left a publisher to pursue a self publishing career almost two years ago and haven't looked back. You see, I only wanted to touch ONE reader with my story. And boy did I ever reach readers!

I always say that my readers are the best readers that any author has! Everyday they encourage me, keep me motivated to NOT watch Dr. Phil and write.

Over a year ago, I was so humbled to get an email telling me that a few readers had nominated my first novel, Carpe Bead 'em as a 2012 eFestival of Words in the Women's Fiction/Chick-lit category. What was MORE humbling was when Carpe Bead 'em took home the title a few months later!

Then. . .a few weeks after that, had double finaled in the 2012 Next Generation Indie Awards in the mystery and humor category!

THen. . .I get an email telling me I'm an Amazon Mover and Shaker. . .


Honored, humbled, and HAPPY!!


I have to say that I am one very, very, very lucky gal!

YEP! You read it correctly!

A New Tradition is the winner of the 2013 READER CHOICE AWARD IN THE ROMANCE NOVELLA CATEGORY!!

I'm am so honored, humbled, and happy! NOT to mention. . .GRATEFUL!!

It was amazing to see all of you come out and vote, everyday for a full month! Everyday my heart swelled when you would show up on the STREET TEAM page and cheerlead us to the end. I loved how we came together, shared with our families and friends.

What it told me....THAT I HAVE THE BEST READERS AROUND!! We have a unique and special STREET TEAM. WE are truly friends, cheerleaders, helping hands, an ear to listen. . .you are my everything!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
