Friday Favorite: Top 5 Combos

Friday FavoritesEvery Sunday morning, my husband ventures out into the wide world to get us donuts and coffee.

He tweeted the other day that the two–donuts and coffee–are one of his top five favorite combinations.

Then he made the hashtag #Top5Combo, inviting others to share their favorites.

Here are mine….

  • my Bible and early morning silence
  • my boys and goofiness
  • a good book and a rainy day
  • diet coke and uninterrupted writing time
  • taco soup & a blustery winter evening

Let’s Talk: Share some of your favorite combos!

I’m sharing my publishing journey story on Married with Fiction today! If you’re interested in reading about how I landed an agent and a book deal, come check it out!

Friday Favorite: Finished!

Friday FavoritesI finished editing my seventh manuscript at two in the morning and I’m giddy!

I sent it off to one of my critique partners and a couple beta readers and now I’m ready and eager to dive into what’s next!

Hopefully, I’ll get to share what’s next with everyone soon. There are things on the horizon, I promise.

Until then, here’s the back cover blurb of the just-for-fun novel I completed at two in the morning.

To give you fair warning, it’s not at all the genre I typically write, which is why the novel was just for fun–a project to keep my creative juices flowing while I waited to dive into what’s next. I have no idea what I’ll do with it, if I’ll do anything at all. All I know is that I had a blast writing it…

Tess Eckhart has always been different. For as long as she can remember, she’s felt things more deeply, more intensely, than anyone she’s ever met. Then she has an incident involving a Ouija board at a high school party. Her complete freak out and subsequent breakdown lead her family to move across the country, next to a privately owned facility for the mentally ill. Tess’s parents insist she see one of the psychiatrists, worried their daughter might suffer from the same illness that tormented her grandmother.

This time, Tess is determined to fit in at her new school. To be normal. To hide the fact that she is seeing a therapist at the Edward Brooks facility. But for Tess, fitting in has always been difficult. She’s used to whispers and stares. But when it comes to Luka Williams, a reluctantly popular boy at her new school, she’s unused to a stare that intense. And he won’t stop. Neither will her headaches or the visions that haunt her at night. Sometime during the day. As Tess tries all the harder to hide them, she becomes more and more convinced that Luka knows something. That Luka might even be responsible.

But what if she’s wrong? What if Luka Williams is the only thing protecting her from a darkness more terrifying than she could fathom?
