In a Flash: E-Book EARLY RELEASE! Last Chance to Be the First to Get Your Autographed Paperback

"In a Flash: Midlife in Aura Cove Book 5" is available now on my website.  (The retailers have to wait until May 1st.) I am putting in my first order tomorrow for the autographed paperbacks. When you order direct you get BOTH the e-book and the paperback for instant enjoyment. 

E-Books that were pre-ordered were delivered to your email address last week. Sometimes they land in Spam or Junk. Look for an email that comes from Bookfunnel. I can't wait to hear what you think! 

In a Flash Paranormal Women's Fiction Series: Midlife in Aura Cove Book 5

Thanks Barnes and Noble!

The series finale, "Flash of Love" was just chosen as an upcoming, Top Indie Favorite by Barnes and Noble. Every book in the series (except the one I forgot to submit) has been selected for this honor. I LOVE Barnes and Noble and my Nook readers. 

Currently Enjoying: Porch Rocker Cocktail

The mancake took me to Texas Roadhouse to celebrate finishing "In A Flash." While there, I ordered a delightful cocktail called "The Porch Rocker." It was so delicious that I snapped a photo of the menu. Mancake surprised me by buying the ingredients a week later. The strawberry version was incredible too, but he hates strawberries, so we opted for the bottle of Blackberry Syrup. (It's a big bottle—so big that I'll have to plan who gets custody of it in my will.)

I love them both, but you do you, Boo!


Over ice, add 1 shot of Deep Eddy's Lemon Vodka. (MUST BE DEEP EDDY'S; other generic brands are NOT the same. Full disclosure: I did not try Smirnoff.)

Add 1 scant tablespoon of Monin's Blackberry or Strawberry Premium Syrup. (MUST BE MONIN'S. Torani's and Rose's are both chemical-tasting garbage. You deserve better!)

Stir the first two ingredients together well, as the syrup is THICK. Then add the club soda, or all your bubbles will disappear and you'll cry like the child who let go of their balloon.

Add 7 oz. of club soda, gently stir, and enjoy!

Currently Writing: The drafting process has begun for the FINAL Book in the Midlife in Aura Cove Series.

Flash of Love.

PRE-ORDER FLASH OF LOVE NOW for Early Access in September 2024. Available Worldwide Wherever Good Books Are Sold on Oct 1, 2024. This is it! The final book in the Midlife in Aura Cove series, my first proper series in Paranormal Women's Fiction and after slaving away for four years trying to figure out where I belong, I have found my home. 

I have two different magical spin-offs that I am considering and we are delving into audiobook creation. 2024 is going to be a whirlwind!
