A year ago, a demon who had been chasing me for eight months finally caught me.
I was in Texas at the time, somewhere between San Antonio and Austin, attending the funeral of a dear friend and co-worker.
I sometimes wonder where denial resides. Because, even though I know for certain I was in denial, I was aware something was wrong. I knew the excuses I was making for the growing list of symptoms was bullshit. And yet I persisted.
I cannot begin to tell you how difficult it is for me to make this announcement.
You, the reader, take a leap of faith when you purchase a book from an author. That leap is riskier when the book is the first in a series. And it is even riskier when it is also a debut novel.
When I released Eagle Cove, I announced that I would release Seventy Six Fallsin September 2016.

We held a launch party yesterday from 10am to 2pm EDT and had a blast! A total of seventeen friends, family, and avid lesfic readers attended the event, making it a huge success!
Eagle Cove reached the TOP TEN on the Amazon Best Sellers list for its category at one point during the launch. It's still holding its own in the TOP TWENTY and is currently #7 in the Hot New Releases in lesbian fiction.
New York, NY - The winners of the 28th Annual Lambda Literary Awards (the "Lammys") were announced last night in a gala ceremony hosted by comedienne Kate Clinton at NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts.

I'm so excited to reveal the new cover for Eagle Cove, designed by Ann McMan She is an award-winning author and cover designer and I am so lucky she graciously agreed to design the cover for Eagle Cove. She will be designing the covers for all the books in the series. So stay tuned for more cover reveals in the future.
I was watching the New Year's Eve New York Times Square Watch The Ball Drop shows on television last night as the various hosts were bantering back and forth to kill time and attempt to entertain us, when one of them mentioned that Raven Symoné said in an interview that she is not an African American, she is an American.
My first thought was, "thank you for standing up against the PC labels we've been suffering with for at least four decades." To be honest, that was my second thought. My first thought was, "Why was Dick Clark not immortal?" But I digress.
