What I’ve been up to lately

I’ve got some interviews and whatnot up at some different sites if you’d like to learn more about me and my latest release:

1. Long and Short Reviews welcomes Katya Armock whose latest book Monica’s Match was released last month. Leave a comment to win a digital copy of the book. She’s currently working on book 2 of the Perry Grove series, which focuses on James and Josie, both of whom are introduced in Monica’s Match.

2. Sizzling Hot Books will have the first chapter of Monica’s Match up later this week. This direct link won’t work until May 22.

3. I’ll be participating in a couple of Facebook parties next week.

Otherwise, I’m writing away. What’s keeping you occupied these days?
