A Brilliant Deception is out!

So it’s been three weeks since my third book was released and I’m finally getting around to writing this post. It’s been a busy few weeks, clearly. Here are some of the things I’ve been working on: We’re running a giveaway on Goodreads right now–5 paperback copies of A BRILLIANT DECEPTION are available to be won! for a little visual insight into the book, check out my Pinterest page of images that inspired me while I was writing.… Read the rest

Blog Tour

My second book is finally out! A MAGNIFICENT CRIME (Agency of Burglary & Theft #2) was released on June 6, and for the past several days I’ve been busy touring around various websites and blogs, as part of my virtual book launch. Here are links to some early reviews and my guest posts: On Strand Magazine’s Mystery Center I wrote a guest post called The Underbelly of Paris, in which I delved into the creepier side of Paris–namely, the catacombs (which are featured in a key scene in my book).… Read the rest

Book Release in 2 Days!

This time of year is incredibly exciting for me…and, I must confess, also a little nerve-wracking. My new book comes out in two days, and while I can’t wait for people to read it, I wouldn’t be human if I didn’t have some butterflies. I hope y’all like it! Some early reviews on Goodreads have been incredibly positive, which is lovely.… Read the rest

Do You Ever Abandon Books?

I used to finish every book I started reading. Even if I didn’t like it, even if I was bored, I would push through. I guess it was the Type A in me. But times have changed. As I’ve grown older I’ve realized that life is too short to read something I’m not enjoying! There are too many books out there, and my TBR list is too unwieldy, to waste time like that.… Read the rest

Virtual Book Tour Week 3

Whew! All this jet-setting is exhausting. Here’s where I went last week… First I went to the seaside. Seaside Book Nook, that is. Jilleen gave me a very nice 4-star review, and you can read it here. I couldn’t get enough and just had to keep reading – my favorite kind of book! After that I visited Patricia’s Wisdom.… Read the rest

The Blog Tour Continues: Q&As, Guest Posts, and Giveaways

I had so much fun during my first full week of blog touring! Here are the blogs I visited: Mom In Love With Fiction did a very nice review of my book.

Next Stop On My Blog Tour: Reading Reality

Today I’ve been hanging out over on Reading Reality, a fabulous book blog by Marlene Harris. After reading my book last week, Marlene asked me if I’d like to write a guest post about the enduring appeal of the heist story. I immediately said why yes, yes I would…and here is the result. She then posted a lovely review of my book (which, quite frankly, had me doing a happy dance this morning).… Read the rest

Blog Tour: Mom In Love With Fiction

So today’s stop for my virtual book tour is: Mom In Love With Fiction Tia, a wonderful book blogger, did a very nice review of my book on her blog. You can read it right here.

Not only will it have you on the edge of your seat at times, it will also give you a character who promises to only get more interesting in future installments.… Read the rest

Book Club: Gone Girl

I’ve been meaning to do this for a while–write a review of Gone Girl, by Gillian Flynn. But as I’ve said before, I barely have time to brush my teeth on a regular basis, let alone write book reviews…so I typically reserve this activity for the books that make the greatest impact on me. And frankly, this book rocked my world.… Read the rest
