The Bookshop Back Home is OUT TODAY!

As promised, my new book titled The Bookshop Back Home is finally out today after 7 years. :) Here's a beautiful review from Bookbed (which is a wonderful volunteer-based community on all things books), and I can't be more touched. thank you to everyone who pre-ordered! You can catch a copy of this wistful tale over at :)

"But the real pull lies in the prose. Reading was like listening to a song, in the sense that the author knows when to come on softly, build power or turn something up into a full-on hair-raising piece harmonized by a hundred instruments. The simplest moment becomes either a shattering or a victorious one because of how the sentences are strung together, causing me, the reader, an emotional roller coaster and half a night of staring blankly up the ceiling. " - Bookbed

AUTHOR UPDATE: New book coming out soon! :)

I've been working on this new-but-old thing since 2010, and when the #romanceclass2016 call came around early last year, I took it as an opportunity to finally take this manuscript out of the dusty drawers and bring it back to life. It's been forever since it got edited and revised and polished like cray-cray, and, finally, I'm about to release the print and ebook versions in a few months.

This is a HUMONGOUS step in my lifelong pursuit of the author life, and I am still forever plagued by paralyzing self-doubt every waking hour of the day, but here it is, and there's no turning back now. Here's just a little sneak peak at the copyright page of the book, to give credit to whom credit is due. :) The big reveal will be out soon, so stay tuned! <3

Summer Feels Book Launch and April Feels Day 2017

Yesterday, friends, family, and fans all flocked together at the Urban Turf, U.P. Town Center for a delicious dose of FEELS. Not only did the live readings make us all swoon, but the Book Buffet, along with the book sales, were all too awesome for words. By the end of the event, the shelf that held all the romance books for sale looked like it was run over by an intellectual storm! <3

That said, a HUGE thank you goes out to everyone who came, supported, and FELT with us. It was my first author signing, and amidst the wrist pain and ink stains on my fingers, I had an absolute BLAST. All thanks to the Big Guy upstairs. :)

My heart is exploding. Thank you once more, and I promise that I'll have more solo books out soon for everyone in the near future. :)

Until then, you can still check out the ebook version of Summer Feels on Amazon HERE, or shoot me a message if you'd like a print copy of the book!

COVER REVEAL! Summer Feels: a #romanceclass Anthology

As promised, today is the day for the cover reveal of "Summer Feels: a #romanceclass Anthology", and heart is just about to burst. Yep. That sounds just about right. You can click inside the post to see the actual cover, but before that, why not feast your eyes on all these teaser quotes from my story, "Alter Christus"? (Ooooh, aaaah!)

Intrigued? I hope so! Click inside for the cover!:)

BOOK LAUNCH! Summer Feels: a #romanceclass Anthology

So...some might say that it's been a year since I last posted, but looking at the time stamp of my last post, you can clearly see that I've still got like two months before it officially becomes a year apart, so HA!

...I really don't know why I opened with that statement, considering it's my first post in a year (fine). But the point is that I'm crazy weird, and I'm sorry if the wifey stuff and the toy reviews had to take a backseat for the past months. This is because I have finally taken on the daunting task of trying to fulfill my dreams, and that is to actually get a book published, because THIS IS EFFING IT. (Please excuse the mindless rambling as this has been my dream since I was a teeny tiny little thing. So.)

The real point of this post is just to say that finally, a short story of mine will be published in an anthology along with 20 other amazing authors in a single, steaming, summer-iffic book titled "Summer Feels: a #romanceclass Anthology". (You can also check out my other short story titled "Who Killed Mrs. Nibblesworth?" published in the Inquirer HERE). CAN YOU BELIEVE IT? I can't even believe it myself. But it's here, it's coming, and on April 30th, my short story "Alter Christus" will make its publication debut. WHAT THE WHAT.

I've also been creating my author profiles (eeep, author profiles!) and you can check out more info and updates in these accounts! <3


So yay and fireworks all around! And if you wanna help out aspiring authors like me, you can pre-order the book on Amazon HERE, and pre-order the print version HERE. Cover reveal will be stay tuned! YAY YAY YAY! *off to drown in tea*
