Dumb

I see you smile at me from a distance

And my heart jumps at an instant.

You walk towards me with arms wide open

And right past me, to embrace another woman.

I can’t swallow, not even breathe,

Is it real or just a stupid dream?

I don’t know, I can’t tell,

It’s like you shut me into a shell.

I can’t see, I can’t hear,

I can’t hold you when you are near.

You don’t know, you don’t care,

You’ll be happy when my heart will tear.

Why can’t I tell you how I feel?

All the pain you caused me needs to heal.

You said you loved me when we went out,

I was in love with you, no doubt.

Then things got bad and you stopped calling,

I sat by the phone all night bawling.

I moved on in a month or two,

You moved on that night in June.

I forgot your number, I ripped up your letter,

I want you to know I found someone better.

You thought you loved me, I thought I loved you,

But all this time, I didn’t even know you.

And here’s some advice, get some help,

Cause all you’re trying to be is like everyone else.

Sparrows Release Date!

It’s been officially announced! My second book is available to the world on June 25th, 2019. As of right now, it’s only available for pre-order on ebook. I will be sure to announce the pre-order for the paperback edition.

In case you’re wondering, I’ve been going exclusively through Ingram Spark this time around, rather than Amazon. (The ebook is through Amazon currently, but only because I want you all to get it pre-ordered!) I will be turning it off once it’s released but it will still be available on Amazon. Confused? Sorry…

But don’t worry! Someway, somehow, I will have Sparrows available to buy on it’s release date! If you’re not able to pre-order, just remember the date and it will be there to buy at your fingertips!

I also got my ARC copies in and posted my reaction video on the social medias if you want to watch. I am extremely satisfied with how it turned out! And good thing because I ordered a bunch and it would have sucked if there was a big issue! I’ll be sending them out to my ARC readers on Monday and I am dying from excitement to hear their thoughts on it. I honestly think I love this one more than the first, is that weird? I wrote this one so much quicker than the first one too, so I don’t know if that has anything to do with it. *shrugs* But I’m excited to hear what people think of all the new characters I’ve introduced and the new issues that have come up. It’s more gritty and deep.

My third and final book is still in the first draft process and I’m hoping to have it out sometime next year. I’m not rushing it though and I have some things going on in my personal life that take away from my writing. But I will do my best to release it in a timely manner. No George R.R. Martin fiasco’s. 😛

If you want to pre-order Sparrows on ebook, please click here! Otherwise, follow me on social medias to be alerted once the paperback is ready! Thank you all so much for your continued support and supporting indie authors. It means, literally, everything. ❤

Tucson Festival of Books

Hello everybody! I should probably do one of those newsletter thingies that most authors do, but, I just feel not enough interesting things happen to me every month. Also, I’m not very productive, so there’s that.

But one thing I am SUPER excited to tell you — if you follow me on social media, you’ve probably already heard me talk about it — is that I have a booth at the Tucson Festival of Books! *waits for cheering* That’s right! This is my very first time I’ll be putting myself out there in the public eye as a real author. Self-publishing is a process that happens so much behind closed doors that when you finally get to show everyone that you are an author, it’s an unreal feeling. I’m not with some big-shot publisher or famous (obviously), so doing this, even if it’s in an Indie Pavilion for just 2 hours, is a big deal.

I will be sitting behind a GORGEOUS booth — decorated by the best book ever — from 2:30 – 4:30pm on Sunday, March 3rd. If you don’t know of the festival, um, shame. It’s a really big event that the University of Arizona puts on every year. They’ve had authors such as R.L. Stine be there and actors such as Jenna Fischer (Pam from The Office) show up before. So… yeah. I’ll admit, I have not been to it before as I’ve only lived in Tucson for a few years and suck at doing things and going to events, but I have always wanted to go. I have the links listed below if you’re interested in going.

The best part is that the Festival is run mainly by volunteers, people who just love reading and books. Tucson in general is a great community and loaded with local business’ and vendors. I’m a bit biased because I live here, but it’s really a wonderful town if you have the time to stop by and check it out. ❤

I hope to see you there!!!

Just as proof, look for my name here. 😉

KickStarter

Hello everyone!! First off, I want to say HAPPY NEW YEAR! I hope you all had an amazing 2018 and will have an even better 2019! Thank you all so much for your continued support and visiting my blog, I appreciate it so much! I really enjoy doing the Indie-Go Interviews with indie authors and writers and hope to keep it going strong in 2019. A special thank you to all of you who have taken time out of your busy schedules to talk with me! I love every single one of our chats!!

Another new thing I am doing at the beginning of the year is a Kickstarter for my new book Sparrows! I was hesitant on doing something that involved asking for money (’cause momma raised me to be proud and not take donations.) But even I have to admit when I need a little help. I also am wanting to launch it out into the world as soon as I can, and I can’t do that without YOUR help! I have some really awesome rewards that I’m giving out that you should really check out. Plus, I’ve decided to not limit where rewards are being shipped, meaning, anyone can donate and receive that reward! (Not just the US.)

If you want to check it out, I would greatly appreciate it! Click here to view it and all the cool stuff you can get! And even if you don’t donate, please share it! This will be ending on Valentines Day (February 14th), because why not.

Thank you everyone again and I hope you have a wonderful New Year!
