The New Office

Wow, I haven't been around much recently because we have some big news....

We Moved!

It wasn't very far but we've got a bigger house, with a bigger yard and that means this mom is very slowly working on putting things away and making the house function better than ever before. 


There are so many things that I am working on creating and adding to help keep our house organized and functioning at tip top shape. One of the big things I'm working on is my office. Now that I finally have my own office space agian, instead of a desk in the familiy room, it's time to make a place that really works well for my businesses. I'm so excited to have everything up and running so I can get back to writing, reviewing, teaching, and sewing! Here are a few of my favorite additions that are helping me get back up and running.

  1. My Desk - it isn't here yet but I've orderd an awesome new desk that will work well in my new space. Having a proper work station makes a huge impact on the level of productivity.
  2. A Calendar - I finally have a spot to put my magnetic, dry erase calendar for scheduling. Staying organized is a big one for me and I am loving the ability to have this out where I can use it.
  3. Google Calendar - I finally took the time to sync Erik's calendar with mine. Now maybe he can stop calling five minutes into my class asking me if I'm busy - because he can tell. I have yet to have proof that this works but I'm excited at the thought that it might.
  4. A Scale - with all the shipping and creating I do I needed to not go to the kitchen every time I needed a kitchen scale. I'm super excited about this digital kitchen scale that I purchased just for my office. It is awesome!
  5. The Cricut Maker - Erik surprised me with this one but I am so excited to have it in my office. My older Cricut has gotten so much use and I'm excited for the expanded adventure of my new machine.

Pre Holiday Organizing

To say that this year has been challenging might be an understatement. We've had some really big really big changes around here that I'm excited to tell you about in the upcoming weeks. Today however, I want to tell you about a little tool that we received that is helping the big boys stay orgainzed as we make these transitions. This hat rack has helped with the chaos and that's enough for me to call it swell!

First just let me say that I can't believe my kids are old enough that they need things like a hat rack to help them stay organized but, alas, we have reached the age that they think things like fashion are important. The downside of the hat rack was that it did not come with any instructions but thankfully it only took us a few minutes to figure out how things went together. 

 




The other thing I don't love about this hat rack is taht the hats just sit on it so they aren't actually very secure when my boys slam their bedroom door (but that's a whole different problem). I think for adults, or maybe on a closet door that you aren't opening and closing all the time, this hat rack would work wonderfully. I'm anxious to see how it does long term here but for now it seems to be helping the chaos.

The Transcendence Series


The Lost Valor of Love 
The Transcendence Series Book 1 
by E A Carter 
Genre: Historical Fantasy, SciFi 


"Claim me, and your every movement, every breath, every word will be written upon my heart, for eternity. You will be immortal yet."

'GRIPPING. WILL KEEP YOU READING THROUGH THE NIGHT.' KATHERINE STANSFIELD, AUTHOR OF FALLING CREATURES

Growing up during the centuries-long conflict between the empires of Egypt and Hatti, the young princess Istara is taken hostage by the King of Hatti to secure the loyalty of her father, the King of Kadesh to the empire. Soon her new life in Hatti's glittering capital becomes all she knows. Bound in blood before the gods to Hatti's unwilling crown prince, Istara, now Hatti's queen-in-waiting, learns she will never be loved.

But the drums of war beat again, and when the scheming plans of Hatti's king threaten the existence of all civilization, the gods give Istara a choice: to leave behind everything she knows to save mankind, or remain where she is, powerless, a token on the game board of kings. On the brink of one of the most brutal battles in history, she chooses to risk her life to deliver a message to the only man able to prevent the prophecy from becoming a reality—her mortal enemy, the Pharaoh Ramesses II.

Wounded, cold and hungry, she wanders in the battle's horrific aftermath, and aids a powerful commander, who she learns protected her once, and has been bound to her ever since by a prophetic dream of his future. Despite his resistance, and Istara once more becoming a pawn of kings, they must confront an eternal love so powerful, not even kings, the gods, or death can keep them apart.

The Lost Valor of Love is the first book of the Transcendence series.

The Call of Eternity 
The Transcendence Series Book 2 


'AN EPIC STORY OF LOVE. POWERFUL AND COMPELLING.' KATHERINE STANSFIELD, AUTHOR OF THE MAGPIE TREE

"I love you, even past the boundaries of eternity. Not even the end of my existence could extinguish the love I feel for you."

In the epic sequel to The Lost Valor of Love, worlds collide, and gods and mortals cross paths, kingdoms fall, and ancient, long-buried hatreds stir.

In the heavens, the storm god Teshub discovers two of the most powerful gods of the pantheon have fallen to a world torn apart by rivalry, war, famine, and plagues. Soon, he learns, he too must fall.

In the north, a crown prince ascends the throne, his queen taken by his enemy as compensation for the crimes of his father. But the new king is prepared to risk everything to reclaim his queen, and plans for war begin.

In the east, a near-immortal senses the awakening of a powerful artifact after an eternity of silence. It can only mean one thing: gods once more walk among men, and with their return—the key to his immortality.

And from far without, the Creator eyes his dying creation, its fragile boundaries unraveling. From across an enormous board, he picks up a token—an exact replica of a living woman. He smiles at it with fondness and sets it down on a new space. Folding his hands together, he steps back, and waits.

The Call of Eternity is the second book in the Transcendence series. 

**Get it FREE April 16 – 20!!** 




The Rise of the Goddess 
The Transcendence Series Book 3 


Istara found the courage to meet Sethi's eyes. In his, the anguish of his love, untainted by the darkness. He was going to leave her. Tears blazed a path through her soul. He drew her against him as she wept, as she accepted what he already knew. For them, there could only be war.

'A SUPERB FINALE. YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED.' KATHERINE STANSFIELD, AUTHOR OF THE MERMAID'S CALL

In a world older than time, a portal stirs from its long slumber. From out of its cerulean mists, the warship of the scion of darkness and destroyer of worlds emerges. With its gods long gone, Elati is a world ripe for the taking. Marduk intends to take it all.

Corrupted by Marduk's devices, Sethi succumbs to the grip of evil. A brutal, merciless commander, he oppresses the kingdoms of Elati, his violence awakening a weapon of the deepest darkness. Poisoned by lies and tainted by hate, he thirsts for its power to obliterate the light of the one he once loved beyond all reason.

Desperate to reprieve Sethi from his corruption, Istara pursues her last hope, risking everything to retrieve powerful artifacts of Thoth's, her light her only defense against the growing darkness—and the one determined to annihilate her.

Bound by love and driven by duty, Urhi-Teshub reaches the threshold of his destiny, where he faces the horrifying price he must pay to protect Istara.

And at the heart of an abandoned island of gods, surrounded by an endless storm, an eternal tower awaits. Caught in the crosshairs of a primordial war for supremacy, Sethi and Istara must face each other one final time. Darkness and light. Enemies. Lovers. Gods.

The Rise of the Goddess is the final book in the Transcendence series.

Everybody in Nashville knows Georgia Clay.

He's the handsome, award-winning songwriter rubbing elbows with the elite stars of country music. An incredible talent in his own right, Clay has always hesitated to step into the spotlight on his own for fear his debilitating childhood secret will rear its ugly head.

Katie Parker is a workaholic Southern beauty who’s first love is her career. It’s not just her knowledge of the cut-throat insurance business she has skillfully navigated over the years, but her tenacity and gumption in climbing the corporate ladder.

The musician and career woman run into each other in the heat of the Atlanta summer at their ten-year high school reunion and unexpectedly end up in the bed of his pickup truck talking till dawn. As they forge ahead in a passionate long-distance relationship, can Clay admit to Katie she had his heart a long, long time ago? Will her drive and encouragement finally be the reason Georgia Clay takes a chance on his career...and love? 


Georgia On My Mind – An Opposites Attract Romance 

First rule in business - never let them see you with your pants down.

Hartford Parker is a disgraced real estate broker hiding out in his sister’s condo in suburban Atlanta. Swearing off women after an embarrassing indiscretion at a black-tie event, Hart now indulges in drinking and working out as he tries to come to terms with his unexpected firing at a prestigious DC firm.

Across town in a run-down and forgotten part of the city, Gia Bates is struggling to make ends meet at her failing dance studio. Secretly working part-time as a Marilyn Monroe impersonator for a seedy entertainment company has Gia feeling trapped in her debt while slowly chipping away at her passion and solace in dance.

The handsome playboy and the dancer with legs-for-days find themselves at the same party and end up on an uncertain path full of sex, secrets, and shame. As they move forward in a spicy tango, can the two of them ever dance in sync? Will they fight for their own happily ever after or will Hart be left with nothing more than Georgia on his mind? 

Georgia Pine – A Second Chance Sports Romance 

The agony of defeat never felt so real.

Never in a million years did Jessica Kaufman think she would be divorced from her real-estate mogul husband and left to raise four young daughters on her own in an affluent Atlanta subdivision. The very last thing she expects is an encounter with her gorgeous gardener who looks more like a sexy beast from her daughters' favorite Disney movie. She is smitten with his evergreen eyes, wild mane of hair and impressive stature.

Tim McGill is in hiding – his reputation and celebrated career on the West Coast left in shambles. He moves far away to distance himself from his downfall and inconspicuously tends the upper-class landscapes to keep his renowned identity a secret. Unlike his typical wealthy clients, Jessica doesn't seem to mind that he's a gardener. One spark between them is all it takes to ignite a fiery passion that could explode if Tim’s identity is revealed. He must earn Jessica’s trust and finally come to terms with what he has lost.

Can Tim open his heart wide enough to let in a beautiful mother and her four little girls? Or will his Southern Belle turn her back on him and walk away from their happily-ever-after? 

From Bestselling Author, KG Fletcher comes three standalone contemporary romances with plenty of Southern steam. Take a chance on these hot men and the women who are as cool and refreshing as a tall glass of sweet tea.

When You Came
The Real Men Series Book 10
by Susan Saxx
Genre: Contemporary Romance  


Snowy Slopes. Faithful Dogs. Sudden Intrigue.
Golden Boy Ski Patroller meets Plain Jane Geek, anti-skiing heroine.

Military reservist Sven Golden works as a first responder for the Canadian Ski Patrol, saving lives and training avalanche dogs in stunning British Columbia on Canada’s West Coast.

But after the woman he thought he’d marry does indeed get married—only to someone else—and he’s forced to take the harrowing new management job at Snowy Peaks Chalet, things go downhill fast. And when he’s asked to head the resort’s new Valentine’s Day Extravaganza instead of working on the slopes, protecting people, he’s had enough.

But when he meets organizational whiz Keara Linn, a Torontonian desperate for the 2-week temporary job as his assistant, things just don’t add up. Very plain, somewhat overweight, yet smart and focused, she’s hiding secrets.

But the passion and heart she’s buried deep inside finally explodes his world. Now nothing is going to shut that down—or his feelings. Not even a crazed madman who is determined to bring revenge on Keara and her guardian dog, the one she loves with all her heart.

And when it’s time? The whole quirky Terrence Point community will have something to say...about everything.

Though she manages to convince Elijah that he was kissing his girlfriend, Remi can’t get the thought of his lips on hers out of her head. As things between them grow more and more complicated—because it turns out her fantasizing about his mouth is more of a problem than it sounds—Remi has to make a choice: does she live the rest of her life loving her best friend in secret?
