Cover Reveal for TIGER LILY

After revealing a bunch of beautiful covers for my friends and colleagues, I finally have the chance to reveal my own.

TIGER LILY, a work of young adult fiction, is available for pre-order now on Amazon and on Kobo

Lily Madison thought dying because of a bad manicure was the worst thing that could happen. She was wrong. 

Waking up in the hospital and realizing she’s being stalked by an entire herd of naughty little ghosts turns her entire world upside down. She begins to doubt her own sanity until she realizes she isn’t alone. A Goth girl, named Zoe, can see the ghosts, too. 

Most of the ghosts look like fuzzy blobs, but one is not blobby at all. He’s a very hot, very annoying dead guy named Nick. Although they dislike each other on sight, Nick soon realizes Lily is his only hope. With the help of Zoe and Mr. Wan, the manicurist who almost killed her, she has only days to get Nick and the other ghosts back where they belong or the whole world will be in terrible danger. 

But sending the ghosts back means saying goodbye to Nick forever, and Lily isn’t sure she’ll ever be able to let him go. 

TIGER LILY will be released January 13, 2016.

Best of the Burghosphere

Most Wanted Fine Art teamed up with Pittsburgh Bloggers to create something new and exciting. The Best of the Burghosphere ( ) is a way to honor and acknowledge the contributions of bloggers in Pittsburgh.

I signed up to participate, even though I’m sort of a slacker blogger. I do most of my blogging on my Facebook page ( ), and so my actual blog has been severely neglected. Abused. Abandoned.

I was assigned a blog ( to read and explore. I also had to choose an award/category for this blog. I chose “Most Thorough, Informative, and Professional Coverage of Events in the LGBT Community and Beyond.”

From the moment I opened Mr. Waters blog, I was impressed with the amount of work that had been put into it. It is so incredibly professional, thoughtful, thorough, and educational. I loved reading so many of the articles. As a writer of romantic fiction, I found several of his blogs to be very helpful with correctly addressing LGBT issues and writing about a trans character appropriately and accurately.

This isn’t just a blog for people who are part of the LGBT community. This is a good read for anyone.

Reading Mr. Waters’ blog inspired me to put more time and effort into my own blog. It also made me curious about what other bloggers are lurking around the Pittsburgh area. Thank you to Most Wanted Fine Arts and Pittsburgh Bloggers for creating this event!
