One Year Publishing Anniversary

It’s been one whole year since I had published my first novel, Chaos. I decided to do something to celebrate. I lowered the ebook price to $0.99 on Amazon.

I would lower the paperback price, too, but Amazon wouldn’t allow that due to printing cost.

So, if you haven’t been able to download a copy to your Kindle yet, now is your chance. In a few days, the price will be going back up.




Two sisters find themselves in a magical world of supernatural creatures and a book that just might send them on a path to find their destiny.

It is the lack of having supernatural abilities that makes Noelle a non-believer. Anya, her younger sister, believes in almost everything, and tries her best to change Noelle’s view of the world, including reminding her they are part shifter.

It isn’t until one morning during a ride into work with her uncle, the town sheriff, when Noelle begins to question her disbelief in all things supernatural. She has a premonition which sends her and Anya on a quest to find a book that may lead to their destiny. A destiny that takes them through a portal into the Faerie realm.

If you love books about magical faeries, shifters, and werewolves which also includes mystery, action, and adventure then this is the book for you!

Supporting Other Indie Authors

I’ve been reviewing books on Amazon and Goodreads for indie authors for a few years now, I don’t know why I hadn’t thought of blogging about them.

So, I decided to try something different. Being an indie author myself, I know how hard it is to get the word out there when it comes to promoting and marketing my work. There are a lot of ways to market your work, yet most of them are out of the budget range, especially if you are just starting out which means you can only promote your work here or there.

With that said, I decided to create a blog where I will post my indie book reviews, as well as author interviews for any indie author out there looking into promoting their published works or looking into building their online presence.

I know there are quite a few book bloggers already out there, but one more couldn’t hurt, right?

It’s FREE marketing!

It’s FREE, which means I’m not charging anyone to market their books. If you are an indie author and think you are interested, check out my blog here. Or, if you are looking for something interesting to read, visit my blog and click follow.

Today is National Autism Awareness Day

Today is National Autism Awareness Day, but to some of us, this is every day. However, I always wear blue on this day in support of my daughter who has autism, along with a long list of other spectrum related disorders.

For the past few years, there has been a controversy going around on Autism Speaks. Whether you support them or not, I believe you should spread the awareness on autism itself. Become a voice for someone who has autism. Educate yourself and spread awareness.

Fact: 1 out of 59 kids are diagnosed with autism. There is NO cure. However, there should be acceptance and not ignorance.

The End of the Mayan’s World, Not Ours

I love reading post about how ‘The World is Going to End on 21 Dec 2012’. Honestly, I don’t believe in that…that’s my “opinion” and I’m sticking to it.

There are just too many “glitches” in the whole ‘Mayan Prophecy’. How could you believe in a race that couldn’t foresee their demise? According to pbs.org, “Scholars find the Mayan hieroglyphics too complex to even understand.” If the Mayan Calendar was even read correctly, maybe the Mayan’s stopped at 21 December 2012 for many reasons. One, the surrounding tribes were at war with one another. Two, they stonemason that carved the Mayan calendar died and no one wanted to begin working on another calendar stone. Three, as soon as the stone was done, they all died. Four, maybe the Mayan calendar just stops at 21 December 2012 like ours stops at 31 December each year. Who knows? What is known is that they were good at math and astrology, they just sucked at predictions.

A few of my friends have said they were going to wake up in the morning, run outside in their underwear, screaming, “I’m alive, the world didn’t end!” I told them they need to film it and make sure they get their neighbors reactions too so we could all have a good laugh.

But on the not so funny part will be the endless list of crazy or stupid things that will keep the news people busy for days. I’m not sure if I even want to turn my TV on that day or the next.
