Never-ending challenges

We've had our fair share of challenges since moving to Colorado. More than once we've almost packed it in and cried, "Uncle!"

But we love our mountain, we love our cabin, and the life we could and will have here. So we keep fighting and we continue to overcome.

Steve will be managing a new restaurant down in Colorado Springs called Chuy's. That's great, since he had worked for them in Austin for many years and welcomed him back with open arms. However, until the new place opens, after the first of the year, Steve will be working in Denver.
He has made the commute daily for the last month. It began taking its toll quickly. The cost of gas alone on top of the hour and a half trip both ways.
Now, thankfully, he will be staying with my younger brother in Denver for the remaining months he has to work there. It's good because it helps with Steve's terrible commute, but we will only see each other on his days off.

Yet another challenge.

After almost twenty-seven years, Steve and I don't do very well separated from one another for too long. But we'll get through this just as we've gotten through all the other tests that have been thrown at us over the past three years.

I'll try to keep you up to date on my sanity level up here in the woods all alone.
Well, not alone. I have Brodee to watch over me.

Nothing new

Nothing new has been going on. Just working to try and survive. Steve’s been commuting to Denver every fucking day because he got a good job. But it’s only u til December when a new place opens down in the Springs. Until then, I’ll stress and worry about his safety.

I’m not working on a new book right now because I’ve lost all enthufor writing. The lack of reader support and reviews have taken their toll.

The end of another series

Well, it's here, the final installment of the Genie in a Bottle series-After the Wishes~Inas. It's always bittersweet when I finish a series of books. But with the Genie books, I felt a real connection. After hearing Christina Aguilara's song, and the flood gates opened, the storyline, characters, and books came almost too easily.

Little secret: After the Wishes~Inas almost didn't happen. The original series was supposed to be a trilogy, with only The First Wish, The Second Wish, and The Third Wish. I had planned on an entirely different ending than the one that ultimately came to be.

The final installment is told by the genie, Inas. It was extremely fun to write in his point of view, and I think added a whole new element to Madison and Inas's story.

The final cover!


I'm so excited about the final cover of the Genie series! It came out perfectly.

I had been planning this cover for a while, even before the third cover was revealed. This is Madison's bottle, and I asked Angela Tolle, my fantastic graphic artist, to use only the opening and remove the topper for the third book. Then for the final book, the whole bottle would be used and it would be closed, because . . . well, you know. And if you don't, then you haven't been reading, and if you haven't been reading, then I'm not talking to you (😊).
