Because I Knew You – Guest Post by Scott Phillips

It's my pleasure today to introduce you to my good friend Scott.  Scott and I originally met at a meeting to discuss the creative future of an arts and news journal that our church was publishing at the time. The journal disappeared, but Scott and I stayed in touch, exchanging stories after we'd discovered we were both aspiring fiction writers.  Scott was always generous with praise…


Moonlight and Oranges Fan Photo Contest

I'm about to open a new part of my site for photos of my readers and fans who have their own copy of Moonlight and Oranges and want to do something fun to document it. If you have your own copy of the paperback or a Kindle download, you're eligible to enter. I will be giving away a bonus scene featuring the beloved Yuki and loyal…


Because I Knew You – Guest Post by Jesse James Freeman

I'm pleased to introduce you today to Jesse James. Jesse and I met on Twitter through our mutual publisher, Booktrope, and I believe the first conversation we launched into was about the TV show LOST (you can imagine how crazy conversations like that quickly become), and then later I recall him admitting, also over Twitter he needed Karo syrup to make more fake blood.  Needless to…


Leading Women to Lead

I sat in a room with 200 amazing, powerful, beautiful women this weekend at the 2012 Women's Leadership Summit and was blown away by the mass of ladies ready to change how women interact with culture, business, and society. Through an act of amazing perfection, I attended this event via a work-trade arrangement (read my ecstatic post about all this coming together).  I came away with…

I have so much news to share with you, I'm making a special "news" post! James and I just returned from an AWESOME time in Cabo San Lucas, and I'm proud to say that we both feel closer because of it.  The photo I've attached to is him and me having an awesome time on our snorkeling excursion.  I don't think I've ever had so many…


…And You’re Still Affecting Me Today

There are about 8 zillion wonderful things my mom has done, and that's if I actually count them all.  It's more than 8 zillion. Although I don't like Hallmark holidays, I do like reminders to say "thank you."  And since I won't be able to see you in person for this Mother's Day, I want to thank you in front of everyone today, Mom. Surprise!  I…


When Everything Aligns

It starts with the heart. I ached for my dear friend who had needed to see a career counselor for many painful years, yet life and fear continued to prevent this.  I'd lay awake at night, praying there was something I could do. It's scary as hell talk about your future. It often means facing all the corners of life where you settled for "safe." I've…
