#TBT Throwback Thursday 2018-10-04 – Okay, Then

For Throwback Thursday I’m going to snip from Okay, Then, a short story set in the timeline of the flashback scenes from ’Til Death Do Us Part, detailing Sam and Henry’s first date in the Solomon Islands. This story is told from Henry’s 1st-person POV, and this is the opening scene: Okay, Then is a very short story that is not available as a standalone, but it is available in three different collections, …

#TBT Throwback Thursday – 1-Year Anniversary for Audiobook Release of —Til Death Do Us Part and From This Day Forward

Today is the one-year anniversary for the audiobook releases of books 1 & 2 in the Vows series. Woo! 🎉 So of course, that’s what I’ll feature for my Throwback Thursday post. The ebooks for ’Til Death Do Us Part and From This Day Forward were first released on April 3, 2016 and August 6, 2016, respectively. They came out together in a single trade paperback edition under the title ’Til Death …

#1LineWednesday – 2018-Sept 19 – The Recruit

I’m going to continue to be a little loose with my definition of “line.” Rather than having it exactly equal “sentence,” I’m going to treat it as a single (and short) stream of thought. This is from The Recruit. For a little context, this snippet comes very shortly after Phillip is turned. He’s already feeling a connection to Albert that he doesn’t quite understand. Told from Phillip’s 3rd-person POV, and “he/his” …

#1LineWednesday – 2018-Aug-29 – The Contingency Plan

I’m going to be a little loose with my definition of “line” today. This is technically three sentences, but it’s one stream of thought in a single bit of dialogue. This is from The Contingency Plan. It’s one of three books I added to Kindle Unlimited recently, and it finally went live in the program a couple days ago. I’m being a little loose with my definition of “recently,” too, since …

#TeaserTuesday – ’Til Death Do Us Part #Excerpt

’Til Death Do Us Part is kind of three stories in one. For a portion of the book the MCs, Henry and Sam, are separated with Sam thinking Henry had died. While they are apart, we get Henry’s story of survival, Sam’s story of grief and moving on, and at the beginning of each of these chapters where the two are apart, we get flashback scenes chronicling highlights from their …

#WiPWednesday – Of Rats and Cats #Snippet #Excerpt

The story is written and contracted, but I think I can still technically call it a work-in-progress since it hasn’t gone through the editing process at my publisher’s yet. Although tweaked many times by me, the story has yet to be given its final polish with all the extraneous words I missed ruthlessly tightened out. My short story (5,833 words at the mo’), Of Rats and Cats will be published by …

#1LineWed – One of my favorites lines from To Love and To Cherish

I don’t know whether #1LineWed is supposed to be for WiPs or if it generally includes lines from backlist titles, but I figure I can make it be whatever I want. And today I want to highlight one of my favorite lines from my personal favorite of my own books. From Vows 3: To Love and To Cherish: This line is spoken by a woozy Nash to Myles/Emmitt. For context, Nash …

#ThrowbackThursday #TBT – A Snippet from an oldie: Photo Shoot

It seems that other than my Saturday “Rainbow Snippets” and my Sunday “what I’m reading on the treadmill” posts, I’ve veered off the track of including things pertinent to my myself or own writing in my blog posts. For now I do plan to continue to sign up for promo posts for other writers’ new releases, etc. (although they do turn into a bit of a time suck), but I’m …
