yes I was a victim of a theft from my purse. last wednesday, I left my purse in the shopping cart at my local grocery. I didn't realize it until I got home and when I got back, someone had turned it in. however my engagement ring was missing out of it. I had been wearing it and then taking it off around my family because Scott and I were going to surprise my family Thanksgiving. yeah, it was a dumb move. one I now wish I hadn't done but I did.
in all of this I try and tell myself at least my wallet didn't get stolen(again) so that is the bright side.
whoever has my ring, I hope you get what you truly deserve. you broke my heart.
here is my beautiful cover flat for Blood Betrayal. I did a major squee and happy dance when I saw this.
also, I found out that Blood Betrayal will be released on December 20th. one day before the alleged end of the world so take advantage of that!
I am sooo excited to help my friend and awesome author launch her novelette New Pride!! it is the prequel for her soon to released novel Shifting Pride, which comes out December 7th. Please check it out. you won't be disappointed!!
In SHIFTING PRIDE, the main character, Nickie, searches for
her missing father, Richard…and NEW PRIDE is all about Richard’s journey to
independence and new love.
A shape-shifter without a pride, Richard Leone strikes a
tenuous friendship with power hungry, Derek, from an unstable, rogue group. On
a hunt in the forest, they encounter a gorgeous brunette, Molly, partying with
friends around a campfire. Derek tells the rogue pride and they bristle at
humans trespassing on their territory. Richard risks life and tail to protect
his secret and the humans—especially Molly—while simultaneously trying to win
her heart. When Molly is kidnapped, he faces taking on the rogue pride alone,
but quickly finds he has to put his trust in Derek, not only to rescue his new
love, but to ensure the rogue pride doesn’t wreak havoc on his new town.

so if you watch The Walking Dead, you know that man next to me is actor IronE Singleton, who plays T Dog on TWD. I'll get back to this pic in a sec. last weekend my boyfriend, author Scott M. Baker, and I went to the Spooky Empire Horror Convention in Orlando. it was awesome. we had the best time checking out all the horror related stuff. as a former costumer I was amazed by some of the con goer's costumes. I was blown away. one of the highlights of the con for me was listening to author RL Stine talk about writing. he talked about his Goosebumps series and his new book Red Rain.
RL Stine is actually very funny. I laughed many many times while he talked. And not one time was inappropriate. after Scott and I got our books signed by Mr. Stine, we went back to where the celebrity guests were. I wanted a pic with IronE Singleton so we waited in line and when we got up to the table, he signed a photo for me and then noticed Scott. Then he proceeded to Wassup Scott and hug him. He remembered Scott from the Infect Scranton Con where Scott was a panel member and VIP guest. how awesome was that that a TV star remembered my boyfriend and then said "Is this your girl? Oh he talked about you. He really loves you!" I about died. Scott and a TV star were talking about me. and that is why I look so dorky in my pic. I was in a major nerdgasm over MY BOYFRIEND who shot up in awesome. he's already amazing but he got a special coating of super awesome after this.
