Tough Decisions

Life is short. How many times have you heard that? Too many times to count, I’m guessing. But the truth is, life IS short. Really f***ing short. Some days this harsh reality slaps you in the face more than others, but when it does, it gets the wheels turning, the thoughts churning. It makes you think about what you’re doing and why you’re doing it. 

This is my way of saying I’ve been doing a lot of thinking. So much thinking my brain has asked me to knock it the hell off. But decisions have to be made and tasks need to be completed. 

Which brings me to Josie Hawk. I love that girl and her motley crew. I truly do. I’ve been working on her next chronicle for nearly 2 years now. She doesn’t like how the story is going and neither do I. I’m not sure why this is happening, but I’ve decided to give Josie a break. She’s going to breathe and so am I. I feel like I’ve been holding my breath for so long, too long. I need to let it out, let it go. She’ll be back. Or she won’t. And I’m okay with that.

I’m going to write a story I’ve been thinking a lot about. One that is dark and sad and light and beautiful all at the same time. I’m going to write it for me and hope my love for the story will translate onto the page and consume you as much as it’s consumed me. 

Love is rarely pretty, but sometimes, if you’re lucky, it’s beautiful.

Go out there, breathe, and be happy…

Happy Friday!

It’s the weekend, yo! Fall is here, and contrary to popular opinion in these parts, it is not my favorite season of the year. Not by a long shot. But it looks to be a stellar, sunny, and unseasonably warm one this weekend, so I’ll get out there and enjoy it. I’ll be looking for inspiration, too. National Novel Writing Month is just around the corner and I’m plotting something brand new. Stay tuned for details!

 

Always Wonder. Ever Wander.

A Great Book for an Even Better Cause

22 Crime Thrillers by bestselling, award-winning, and critically acclaimed authors!

What happens when the person you trust the most betrays you? That’s the question posed in Betrayed, a powerful collection of stories about love, violence, and survival. The characters in these pages may suffer and bleed, but they fight back. They are survivors — not victims. 

In Terri Lynn Coop’s Legal Aid, an overworked lawyer takes on a complex divorce case that just may get her fired … or killed. 

An invalid who believes his neighbor is tormenting his young wife takes matters into his own hands in Wendy Tyson’s Soap. 

When a private investigator is hired to find someone who appears to have disappeared from the face of the earth, he questions whether some people should be found in How Not to Find Someone in Houston by Liam Sweeney.

And in Elizabeth Heiter’s The Second Shot a teenage girl is convicted of murdering her abusive father … but is she really guilty?

As a bonus, New York Times bestseller Allison Brennan contributed the novella, Mirror, Mirror, about what happens when a police detective suspects her sister is hiding a dark secret … a secret that just may get them both killed.

These stories and more fill the pages of the first anthology published by Authors on the Air. Victims become victors and – hopefully – justice is served.

Every author has donated their time and stories. Profits from this anthology are being donated to programs and organizations that help victims of domestic violence reclaim their lives.

 

BETRAYED IS AVAILABLE AT ALL MAJOR E-TAILERS
