OH MY GOSH, WOW I AM OVERWHELMED! Deep breaths. *Composes self.* What a crazy few weeks it has been! Girl with Guitar has hit as high as 292 on the Amazon rankings! I’ve made it as low as #21 on the New Adult list and #15 on the Hot & New list. Talk about exceeding my expectations. Thanks to all of you sweet people who have bought the book and bullied your friends and family members into buying it was well. 😉 Big hugs to those of you who take the time to leave reviews on Amazon, B&N, GoodReads, Facebook, and your gorgeous blogs! THANK YOU ALL SO VERY MUCH!
In some super exciting news, I will be attending my very first AUTHOR BOOK SIGNING EVENT! Squeeeeee!!!
If you are in the Dallas area on August 10th, I hope you will come see me and the other fabulous authors at the Denton Author Event! Psst…this will be the big reveal of the paperback ARCs for Girl on Tour (book #2 in the Kylie Ryans series) as well! 😉
Currently there’s a Fan Appreciation Giveaway going on to help Trace and Kylie make it to the top 100. Hope you’ll check it out! Big hugs, y’all! Without you, none of this would be happening. So thank you so much for helping me to catch the dream I’ve been chasing! xxoo

Ahh! Cover Reveal Day! Many special thanks to all of you participating in and commenting on the Cover Reveal posts! Bless y’all! My friend Emily Tippetts worked tirelessly on this cover because she Ah-Mazing! (Obviously!)
I’m hard at work on two really important things right now: 1. Preparing to launch this beautiful book on May 22. (The blog tour is May 22-31)! and 2. Girl on Tour, the sequel to Girl with Guitar! Psst…might be a third book in the works, Girl in Love. But…we’ll see. 😉
As some of you know, Keep Me Still was set to be my second book. But because I have received such an overwhelming outpouring of love and some death threats (joke!), Girl on Tour will actually be my next book. I plan to work extremely hard this summer to get it all ready and pretty for y’all and Emily is already prepping to work on the cover. Hopefully you will get the next part of Trace and Kylie’s story in August of this year!
So that’s what happenin’ over here y’all. I can’ wait for everyone to read my debut novel. So far I’ve been blessed with wonderful heartfelt reviews and I can’t thank all of you enough for your support! (Though I’m going to try, lots of fun giveaways coming up!)
Until next time, hugs!

As the release of my debut novel, Girl with Guitar, approaches, I’ve begun working steadily on the second book in the Kylie Ryans series. The official title will be Girl on Tour and at this time, it may or may not include some of Trace’s point of view. 😉
Drama is the word when love goes on the road. There’s bar fights, the police get involved, and crazy exes every which way they turn. Trace and Kylie are struggling not only to hold on to their careers, but to each other.
Interested in a sneak peek of Girl on Tour? If you purchase the eBook of Girl with Guitar there will be a link at the end to sign up for my mailing list. Once you’ve done that, you will be sent the link for the exclusive sneak peak. I am also considering including the preview in the paperback version of Girl with Guitar…er, did I mention there was going to be a paperback version? There is! Thanks to the hard work and creative abilities of my CP and extremely talented friend, Emily Tippetts, the paperback will be available the same day as the eBook!
So that’s it for now! Check back on May 15th for the Cover Reveal of Girl with Guitar!

2013 is off to such a great start! Two completed manuscripts, two fantastic new Critique Partners, and a third book in the works. I have learned so much this year about self-publishing, branding, and social media!
My first book, Girl with Guitar, is scheduled to come out on May 22. On my birthday y’all! Julie at ATOMR will be signing up bloggers in early May for the buzz event taking place June 1-14. I’m too excited for words!! My second book, Keep Me Still, is scheduled for September and the amazing Sarah Hansen at Okay Creations is designing the cover. So what am I working on now? Last Second Chance is my current WIP and I am writing my tail off in hopes of releasing it before Christmas!
