Book Blog Tour

Goals for 2015

amy-happyHappy New Year everyone! 2015 is going to be huge in my life. Molly Miranda: Thief for Hire is coming out on February 6th and I’m getting married in September.

Here are my goals for 2015:

  1. Plan wedding. Don’t screw it up.
  2. Finish at least one draft of second novel.
  3. Be braver. (Just signed up for a women’s improv class yesterday. I’m hoping this will help.)
  4. Do yoga twice a week and gradually extend exercise time.
  5. Finish watching all of the Harry Potter movies.

What are your goals for 2015?

Don’t forget to check out the first 2 chapters of Molly Miranda: Thief for Hire!
Pre-Order on Amazon / Kobo

Read 2 Sample Chapters FREE!

Well. That’s what I get for hanging out with a professional thief all the time.

The first two chapters of Molly Miranda: Thief for Hire have been ripped right out of the book and put online for anyone to read. How RUDE.

If you care to check ‘em out, you can download them here.

In others news, I received a proof of the paperback right before Christmas. I cried. It’s now well marked-up and dog-eared and a new version has been sent to the printer. This process is a lot of work but every step is such a joy and such an adventure. :)

Giving Tuesday! (Sponsored by the Fox-Hartford Foundation for Women)


In my last of three sponsored posts, I want to introduce you to a really great charity called The Fox-Hartford Foundation for Women based in the UK.

The Fox-Hartford Foundation for Women offers assistance to women’s shelters, women trying to get back into the workforce after being in an abusive relationship and helps funds women’s rights initiatives in third world countries, including the education of young women.

This charity is currently not available to take online donations but FHFW have provided a list of related charities that you should consider donating to.

Note: This is not a real charity, but one that appears in Molly Miranda: Thief for Hire. Enter to win this book by coming to my Facebook book launch in February!

Happy Giving Tuesday! Giving Tuesday is a day of charitable giving. When so much money is spent on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, it’s important to remember what the holidays are about and give to your favorite charity.

This year I’m donating to The Malala Fund. Please have a look at the list below and donate.

malala-yousafzai-ftrThe Malala Fund
The Malala Fund’s integrated approach consists of 3 pillars to empower girls through education: we amplify the voices of girls to keep them in the spotlight, inspire girls globally and drive action on girls’ issues by the global community; we advocate at the international, national and local level for policy and system changes that give girls access to a high quality education at a community level; and we invest in community centered scalable solutions that provide quality education with potential for systems level change by empowering local leaders and educators.

Because I Am a Girl
Because I am a Girl is a global initiative to end gender inequality, promote girls’ rights and lift millions of girls– and everyone around them– out of poverty.

Production Update (Another Sponsored Post)


This blog post is sponsored by Cedar & Watson. Cedar & Watson is an accounting firm in Brooklyn, New York.

“We specialize in personal, business and corporate accounts where lots of money is involved. Big money, big money!” explains co-owner Ruby Watson.

Co-owner Eli Cedar adds, “Ruby, do you always describe our business like that?”

Note: This is not a real business, but one of the business that appear in Molly Miranda: Thief for Hire. Enter to win this book by coming to my Facebook book launch in February!

unnamedAhem, in other news: advanced reader copy ebooks are finished and sent off to reviewers. But I’m not done looking for advanced reviewers!

If Molly Miranda: Thief for Hire sounds like a good read to you, let me know and I’ll send over a copy. (Learn more about this book.)

If anyone is having trouble converting their MS Word documents to ebooks, I highly recommend you check out Simon Whistler’s video tutorial. I love Simon’s podcast Rocking Self Publishing and happened to see the post on his blog and man! It was an enormous help. I just needed to give a shoutout to Simon because the tutorial was such a help.

My editors Colleen McKie and Allister Thompson have been wonderful. Next, my book goes to the proofreader to be proofed. Then I lay out the paperback version. I can’t wait to see my baby with a real cover, a spine and pages. I’m going to sniff those pages so hard.

I plan to give my Indiegogo campaign contributors their ebook copies before the February 6th release date. If all goes as planned, I should be able to get paperback copies out before then as well, but I don’t want to over-promise.

I’ve started researching the sequel and I’m SO EXCITED about the possibilities! Where will Molly go this time? Will she get caught? Will she get together with her love interest or will they just end up killing one another?

You’ll have to stay tuned to find out…
