Meet-Ups with Denise! Meet Me in YOUR City!

Posted by on Aug 31, 2014 in General | 10 comments

In 2015, instead of going to author events, I’ve decided to start creating “meet and greet” sessions. Once a month or every other month, I’ll travel to one or two locations and meet readers in an informal setting, giving us a chance to sit around and chat. You can ask me questions and I can share things most readers don’t know. You can buy books and swag (Crappy Doodles mugs, Team Joe and Team Mason shirts anyone?) Purchase is NOT required. We’ve tried this in two locations now (see the photo) and I loved...

Happy Third Book Birthday Twenty-Eight and a Half Wishes!!!

Posted by on Jul 1, 2014 in General | 23 comments

Three years ago today I entered the publishing world when I released the eBook of Twenty-Eight and a Half Wishes on Amazon, B&N and Smashwords. But silly me didn’t officially declare the release for another week–until the print book came out. Hahahahaha! You see, even then I was still thinking in traditional publisher terms. A print book was VERY important to me. That made it a “real” book. Little did I know then what I know now–about 98-99% of all my sales are eBooks. (BTW, I still make a print book of all...

Thirty-Two and a Half Complications Rose Gardner Mystery #5 Release: June 24 Available for preorder: iBooks Amazon Amazon UK   Chapter One   Staring down the barrel of a gun was not how I wanted to start my day. “Everyone put your hands on your heads and lay down on the floor!” the robber shouted, the ski mask over his face muffling his words. Without the gun, it would have been hard to take him seriously. His mask was plastered with pictures of Sponge Bob Squarepants. I started to get to my knees, clutching a deposit bag tight in my...

Happy Release Day BUSINESS AS USUAL!

Posted by on Apr 10, 2014 in General | 3 comments

Happy Release Day BUSINESS AS USUAL This is the third book in the USA Today bestselling Off the Subject series. BUSINESS AS USUAL tells Lexi Pendergraft’s story. My original plan had been to make the third book Tina’s story, but Lexi stole my heart while I was writing REDESIGNED–and from reader comments–she stole a lot of your hearts as well. I loved telling Lexi’s story and found her intimacy issues heart-breaking. I hope I did her justice. And Ben–her love interest–I think Ben is one of the most...
