Book Covers, An #InkRipples Blog Post

     Last year, I spent most of my 'writing' time editing manuscripts for others. Although I will continue to edit, I'm making a conscious decision to actually write during my writing time this year. As part of that writing, I'll be participating in the #InkRipples blog meme. This month’s theme is Book Covers. So here we go...

     Since I can remember, I’ve heard the saying, don’t judge a book by its cover. That’s exactly what I do though. Don’t you? What else is going to grab your attention when it’s sitting on the shelf with a ton of other books?

First Chapter of The Gardenia Curse


Chapter 1


Gasping, Eva felt the coolness of the blade as it sliced through her skin. She clutched her now oozing side and opened her eyes to darkness. She frantically looked around. Her heart pounded against her ribs as if trying to break free. Her face dripped with sweat. Where was she? What was going on?

Feeling a sticky warmth on her hands, Eva looked down. Her hands still clutched her side. In the trickle of moonlight that filtered through the window, she could see blood. Her blood.

Eva scanned her surroundings. The darkness that faced her now was just that, darkness. A lack of light. Nothing more. As her eyes began to Continue reading “First Chapter of The Gardenia Curse”


The past two months or so have been a whirlwind. I’m still in a bit of shock that in that time I went from no publishing contract to waiting for the proof copy of my book. Things have moved quickly, a perk of signing with a smaller publishing company. By the end of the month my nine and up fantasy, The Gardenia Curse, should be released, just in time for Halloween.

To find out when the release date will be, follow me on Facebook, Twitter or WordPress.

Now, to catch up on all the things that fell by the wayside during this time and start working on my next project.
