Exploring Scrivener on the Indie Author’s Journey Podcast

word PODCAST with headphones on side for the letter C

I had fun talking to Terry Heath on the new Indie Author’s Journey podcast about what Scrivener is, what I like about it, what’s new in Scrivener 3, and my suggestions for approaching how to learn it.

Clocking in at 34 minutes, this episode’s not too much of a commitment, so I hope you’ll check it out.

And if you need to spice things up, drink every time I say “cool.” Do not do this while driving. 😉

Packed with action and emotion. BLIND AMBITION is a page-turner! – New York Times bestselling author Laura Griffin

IT’S ABOUT TO GET HOT IN THE JUNGLE

Rescuing a kidnapped aid worker from St. Isidore’s dangerous rebels is just another day at work for former pararescueman Dan Molina. But his mission falls apart when the woman—who once shattered his heart—refuses to leave the island.

Alexa Alyssandratos can’t return to her life as a nurse on the hurricane-ravaged Caribbean island, but she won’t leave until she’s certain the orphans she cared for—especially one sick little girl—are safe from the rebels. Denied their ransom, a would-be dictator and his soldiers are hunting Alexa, and Dan is the only person who can protect her. Old passions reignite as she and Dan race to save the children before they disappear forever.

Running Blind is here!

Running Blind is finally here! Did you know that this is my fourth romance, and that each of them was published while I was living in a different city?

This release was by far the craziest because I was editing, working with a cover artist, and trying to keep to my publishing timeline, while in the middle of moving and house hunting. Never a dull moment!

I know some of you have been waiting patiently—or not so patiently—for Kurt and Caitlyn’s story, so I hope you love it.

Running Blind is available from all the major online retailers in ebook and print. Learn more on the book page.

Have a fabulous day!

Happy New Year!

Welcome to 2018!

Looking back, 2017 had its ups and downs, but it was a pretty good year for me. I published Blindsided, and finished writing and revisions for Running Blind, created two new online courses for Scrivener 3, and gave my first international workshop in Canada.

I got into journaling for keeping track of my personal and professional goals, and to help reduce stress by thinking things through on paper. Another change came when I switched up my schedule to increase productivity. Both helped tremendously.

The new year should be busy and fun. In addition to Running Blind (out January 16th), I plan to release book 5 in the Men of Steele series toward the end of the year, as well as create additional Scrivener 3 courses and books, including those for the Windows version when it releases in 2018 (yay!).

My husband took a job in the Los Angeles area, so I’m starting off the year by moving into a new house (our stuff arrives Saturday!) in a new city (Redondo Beach), and looking forward to a slightly different lifestyle with more walks on the beach, more walking (and less driving in general), more exploration/travel, and less stuff.

How was your 2017? What’s on your plate for 2018?

Thank you for being part of my online community. I hope the new year has fabulous things in store for you!

Cover reveal: Running Blind (Men of Steele #4)

Running Blind cover artYes! Kurt Steele finally gets his own book. Running Blind (Men of Steele #4) releases January 16, 2018, and is available now for preorder at Amazon, iBooks, and Kobo. For fun facts and an excerpt, check out the book page.

Description

Charter pilot Caitlyn Brevard’s sister disappeared while working undercover to expose human traffickers in the Caribbean. Four months later, Caitlyn has finally found her, but to infiltrate the captor’s inner circle and rescue Rose, she must appear at the man’s gala event with a fiancé she concocted to keep his lecherous son at bay. Can she convince Kurt Steele to forgive a past betrayal and play the doting groom-to-be?

Former special operator and wounded warrior Kurt can’t say no to a friend in need, especially not Caitlyn, who he can’t forget, no matter how hard he tries. But playing ardent fiancé to the woman who broke his heart—and still attracts him like no other—might just be more than he can bear. When their mission turns deadly, he and Caitlyn must risk everything to save Rose and get a second chance at a love worth dying for.
