Do I actually believe in aliens? Did I really read my first romance novel in high school? Did I write Beyond the Next Star on my cellphone? Separate fact from fiction and learn a little bit more about me and my new sci-fi romance novel, Beyond the Next Star!
I’m so incredibly proud of my published books – it’s crazy how much of a double-edged sword they are. They’re a reminder that hard work and persistence pays off, but somehow they’re also a mocking challenge. Will my next book be as good as the previous? The problem with raising the bar is making it over a second time. But I’m working on it! #lovingbeyondthenextstar #lovebeyond #impostersyndrome #scifiauthor #alienabduction #alienromance #paranormalromance
Lookie what arrived on my doorstep! Paperback copies of Beyond the Next Star are in and just waiting to be signed!!
You think hot and humid when describing Georgia weather, but in the mountains of north Georgia in the dead of winter while lost on the Appalachian Trail for five hours – its a little bit freezing. This scene in Beyond the Next Star was inspired by that memorable hike with my husband…
Beyond the Next Star was featured in the Tribute & Georgian! Love our local newspaper here in little St. Marys!
Google “your name + your favorite color + aesthetic” & the first 4 (non-collage) pics make your aesthetic board 💜 This is mine!
I had so much fun world building in Beyond the Next Star. On the planet Lorien, the inhabitants speak the language Lori. Be sure to flip to the back of the book for a Lori dictionary – after you read the book, of course! Granted, we’re at the same disadvantage as Delaney in that our human vocal chords can’t growl at the correct depth to truly achieve a precise pronunciation…but we humans do our best.
Super excited to chat with the Words & Whimsy Book Club tomorrow at 8pm!! Get ready for some fun conversations about vampires, aliens, romance and all things fabulous.
During my forty-five minute commute to and from work, I listen to dozens of songs, and while I’m singing and thinking about my book—because if I’m not writing my book, I’m agonizing about what I’ll be writing next—the feelings that those songs evoke in me often transform into the soundtrack of my story. These songs are a few of my favorites, but more than that, they’ve influenced my writing, and hopefully, evoke the same feelings you’ll experience while reading my new sci-fi romance novel, Beyond the Next Star. Listen and enjoy on Spotify!
Inspiration collage for the planet Lorien – the setting of Beyond the Next Star! Developing the depth of Lor and Lorok culture – their language, customs, food, government, predators, architecture, etc – was one of my favorite parts of writing this story, only second to developing the romantic plot. Of course, lol!
