So remember that apple picking I did? I have so many apples! I made homemade applesauce, we ate apples, and I made apple pie. Still have soooooo many. Send recipes please! Any apple recipe you have tried and loved! We have a variety of kinds so if it requires a specific apple feel free to mention that too!
I have been busy. 3 out 5 of the books coming out next year have the 1st draft done and are with the editor (who is cursing my name for popping them out so quickly).
I am getting covers for all the books being released now through 2021. You may have seen them on the series page or on the home page being added as I get them. So many pretties. I like having the covers early it will make marketing easier (since a cover required for that).
On a personal note my cat is on a new medication. I am hoping for the best. But just in case he needs a transplant anyone know where to buy pet organs? There is a black market for human organs so there has to be one for cats....I mean everyone loves their pets. ;) I did tell the vet if my cat needed a transplant to find one with the right blood type and I would scrap it for parts. Anything it takes. They told my cat not to be mad that I brought him to the vets because I loved him...a lot. There is no price to high to make my baby better (my hubby says we should stop just short of bankruptcy and I said bring on the bankruptcy my kitty gonna be happy and healthy).
I am looking forward to autumn. My son, bestie and I have already gone apple picking for the early bird apples. We are going again in October. I have ordered our Halloween costumes as well. (My almost 6 year old son picks the theme). I know its only September but I hate waiting until everything is gone and if they send the wrong sizes I like having time to correct the issue. Anyway my son is going to be squirtle and then wear the outfit as pjs (double duty = awesome) and I shall be charmander (also one piece pj that I plan to live in all winter). My bestie will be pikachu.
We have yet to convince the hubby to trick or treat with us and dress up. He does however loves the pumpkin picking then carving process. He is really good at it so that likely helps. I like the scooping pumpkin guts out. Hubby always laughs saying I'm am a terrible girl because I love getting dirty. I jump in mud puddles, love making meatloaf because you use your hands to mix it and other weird things like that. I prefer to describe it as being connected to my inner child.
Well happy upcoming autumn. Feel free to share costume ideas and or pics. We are open to ideas for next year (we really love Halloween). Below you will see my sons and mine for this year. (not us the amazon pics)

Tiffany Lang hit the jackpot when she married her college sweetheart. For seven years, she had it all; a successful husband, beautiful home, and an adorable son. But her winning streak came to a heartbreaking end when she discovered her husband balls-deep in another woman. Nine months later, Tiffany is divorced and adjusting to life as a single parent under the ever-flashing lights of Las Vegas. With her son now spending half his time at her ex’s, she longs for something to keep her busy. At the suggestion of her best friend, she takes a job as a cocktail waitress at one of Sin City's hottest establishments: Azul Cielo Casino.
Carter Jackson, a prominent entertainment lawyer from LA, is known as a high roller at Azul Cielo Casino, hosting private poker nights for his colleagues and sparing no expense. A last-minute staffing change puts Tiffany front and center at one of these gatherings, where she meets Carter. Their attraction to one another is instant and palpable, yet Tiffany vows to keep things between them professional. Carter’s charming persistence eventually wears her down and she agrees to meet for coffee. A harmless enough first date, right? Wrong. The line between ‘professional’ and ‘personal’ is quickly erased.
Life with a high roller is anything but boring. Lavish parties, wild, unhinged sex. But then, something changes, raising the stakes in their relationship. And while Carter’s going all-in, willing to take the biggest of gambles on true love, Tiffany is hesitant. The sting of betrayal from her cheating ex is still there, holding her back. But the bet’s on her now. Will Tiffany call to see if Carter’s bluffing, and take a chance on love again? Or, will she fold and walk away from the table with nothing?

So I realize its been a little over 3 weeks since you have heard from me. And maybe some of you didn't notice, maybe some of you wondered if I died....well I didn't.
I did break a toe, fell and bruised my tail bone, my cat started having seizures so we have been to the vet 3 times in 2 weeks, I had to see my TMJ specialist because I am clenching so hard at night I have put cracks in 2 teeth...which meant I had to go to dentist to get them patched up so they don't completely fall apart and get stuck in my throat in my sleep. So as you can see its been a crappy few weeks.
Not going to lie I am looking forward to winter when I can hibernate and hide from the big bad world.
Because it has been a crappy post I want to share a cute animal pic to leave you with cheer. Feel free to send me your pet pics! I love cute animals....which is basically all animals. Never fails to make you smile.
Shifting Truth, the long awaited book 2 of the shifting blood series, is set to be released before the end of the year. So that is also some yay news. Now enjoy and cute sleeping cat photo!
Lions, and tigers, and bears oh my! Lots of shapeshifters! They are everywhere! Paranormal romances galore and my first Animal Within book (Taming the Wolf) is there! Go grab bit now!
So I don't know if any of my blog subscribers are authors but if so you should know that my cover artist is an all around amazing author helper. She formats books, does covers, logos/branding, bookmarks, and more. And she is having a huge sale to get her new name out there! (She left a partnership and has rebranded on her own!) The thought would terrify me but she is so amazingly brave. her website is below as well as info on the sale. there is also an fb group you can join to contact Lola.

I love to write. In my spare time I nerd out on manga and anime. I read...a lot. When I am pried away from that I like photography (by that I mean a digital camera that I use to document my family's life... obsessively so). I also like nature. I am told I am like a puppy in the fact that if I do not get my daily walk in I am unbearable to be around.
