July Goals (and an exciting announcement!)

Monthly Goals

Can you believe another month is here? I know I can’t! It seems like just yesterday I wrote up my goals for June. A lot has happened, and I’m not just saying that tritely. A LOT has happened. In fact, it was something life-changing. Continue reading


It’s really happening!

What’s really happening? I’m glad you asked. Earlier this spring, I got in contact with someone who had expressed interest in reading books for audio. I asked him for an audition and LOVED what he did with my story. So, I hired him to record it. I don’t know the exact release date since it’s been slightly slow in recording, but I do have a cover thanks to Perry Elisabeth Design!

I absolutely love it and can’t wait to share the audio sample with you soon.


August updates, an announcement, and new goals

August ended up being a busier month than I expected. But it was a good month and I got a lot done.


In August, I orchestrated a couple of blog tours for some clients which was fun and I was thankful for their business. I also finished as much of the rough draft of Savior, Like a Shepherd as I decided to. I wasn’t sure how to write the end, so I left that for the typing up phase which I have been working on the last week. I am now about 3/4ths of the way through that process with the goal of finishing by Saturday so I can send the manuscript to my beta-readers.

I also published my third novella of the summer (and personal favorite), Blessed Assurance. If you haven’t had a chance to see anything about it yet, scroll down to yesterdays post and meet the main character, Adelaide Brown.

Besides some real life things, I think that’s about it for what happened in August. So now I can share with you the exciting news I found out on Wednesday night! Continue reading

Congratulations, Ladies! I will be emailing you to get your mailing addresses. Thank you all for participating in this fun giveaway and blog tour. Have a great day!


…my shiny, new, second blog. In the last couple of weeks, my new venture of blog tour orchestrations has taken off much faster and more prolifically than I ever expected. Because of that, I decided to create a second blog specifically for the blog tours I orchestrate and/or sign up for. This blog will be for all of my personal Writings, Ramblings, and Reflections.

So, if you would like to learn more about new books, please feel free to head over to my new blog, Bookish Orchestrations. My first (real) post will be going up on June 2nd when Aubrey Hansen stops by for her blog tour.

A New Venture

For the new year. On Saturday, I set up an Etsy store for myself.  Right now I only have doilies on there, but I hope to add other handmade items soon as well including some unique crocheted bookmarks. My sister is also considering putting some of her knitted items and possibly her paintings up there someday as well. Check out the store and here are some pictures of the doilies that are up right now.

P.S: They would make great wedding gifts.
