The News

Readers, it's time to share what I've been keeping inside for so long. Seriously, I don't know how I held on to this little life-changing tidbit. Actually, to be completely honest, I've told several people already, but I haven't made any official announcements until today. So, before we get into it, I would like to offer you some munchies. I've been doing a serious amount of baking of late just to keep my nerves in check. Lots and lots of baking. So I offer you several choices:

Cherry Cupcakes

Chocolate Chip Cookies 

Buttermilk Biscuits

So, grab a virtual snack and gather around. I'm about to share the news.

No, I'm not pregnant. Charlie Hunnam and I aren't at that stage of our relationship yet. He doesn't even know I exist. Sigh. 

Anyway, my news involves another baby, come from the creative places within me. Years of growing pains and pimping has paid off. She has found a home. 

Yes, folks, TASTE is to be published by none other than Crescent Moon PressThey have taken my baby out of the rain and offered her shelter. She is now plunging into the moonlight. 

I've heard from my editor and edits are on their way. I can't wait to start making TASTE as beautiful as she can be for her debut--the date of which, has yet to be announced. 

So, while you're munching on your baked goodies, please head on over to The Coffee Bar and indulge in the first three chapters. They will be taken down soon, so this is your chance to sneak a peek before then. And while you're there, share the love by following. 

Thank you so much for your continued support and stay tuned for more updates. I can't wait to share this next stage with all of you.
