New Year. New Round of Giveaways!

If you’ve been following me for any length of time, you know that I like to do a few giveaways a year. Sometimes they are exclusive giveaways only to my newsletter subscribers, sometimes they are only on Facebook. I like to shake it up so I can make sure to reach where everyone is.

For 2023, I’m going to double the number of giveaways I do so that I can reach readers in the places they are! That means that no matter where you follow me, you’ll have a chance at the giveaway (and if you follow me in all four places, four times the chances!)

So, what am I giving away, and when? Great question.

Yes, I realize the seasonal order is off, but I made the book design before I made my giveaway plan. Yes, it makes me twitch, but I’m moving on. *twitch.

That means the next giveaway I’ll be doing will be the Spring Giveaway of my Romantic Comedy books. That will include signed paperback copies of:

  1. Doppelganger
  2. Must Love Coffee
  3. Taking Stalk
  4. The ABCs of Dee
  5. Waiting in the Wings

Now, when and where will this giveaway happen? Another fabulous question! I’ll do this giveaway in March (I KNOW that seems like forever away, but it will be here soon enough.) WHY March? Well, two reasons.

  • In January my focus will be on getting the word out about A Single Step: A Kaden’s Keepers Series on the Yonder App (release date coming soon.)
  • I have ANOTHER release in February (I know. The Yonder thing threw a wrench in my release plan but we’re making it work.) On February 7th, Vol. 4 of my Where You Left Me series launches.

WHERE YOU MET ME (Free prequel chapter)




WHERE YOU LEFT ME, Vol. 4 (02.07.23)

WHERE YOU LEFT ME, Vol. 5 (Pre-Order)

So, basically after each release month, I’ll do a giveaway as a thank you for putting up with me. 🙂

To recap:

2023 Release Plan-Get the scoop!

Well, 2022 has been properly kicked to the curb! That means it’s time to ramp up the action for 2023.

Last year, I was able to maintain my goal of four releases in one year. They all happened to be under my pen name, oddly enough. I published Volumes 1-3 of my 5 novella series, Where You Left Me, then ended the year with my rom-com Waiting in the Wings. A lot of W titles for 2022. Totally not planned!

On January 1st, I got the cover image for the Yonder App serial story, A Single Step: A Kaden’s Keeper Series. As of this posting, I don’t have a release day for when it will go on the app, but I’m told early this year so… I’ll let you know!

After that first book, the second and third releases are close behind. The last two novellas in the Where You Left Me series will be out in 2023 as Vol. 4 is already up for pre-order for Feb. 7, 2023. Vol. 5 will release in May of 2023. 🙂 Then, the unrevealed title in August will be released by my publisher City Owl Press. As for the 5th release, on paper, it can be done, but in reality, it might not work out. Hence, why I write all my plans in pencil. Life happens. That’s what erasers are for.

With 2023 penciled out, do I already have tentative writing plans for 2024, 2025, and 2026? I sure do. Are any of those books written yet? Some have drafts going, other titles are only ideas at this point. But this is how I turn the ideas into reality. I give them a deadline by which they can realistically come to fruition. Then, using that deadline, make monthly goals, then daily goals. If you meet the daily goals, you reach the monthly goals, and if you meet the monthly goals, chances are, you’re going to meet your yearly goals. 🙂

Clearly, I have my work cut out for me this year, but I have a plan. And that is, after all, step one.

Until next week, I have a few words to write.
