Mark your calendars.

I’ve been quiet lately. But I’ve been hard at work revising Divided and working on a new short story for this year’s Thrill of the Hunt Anthology: Buried Alive.

Plus the whole running a new business thing. And classes. Ya know, just small stuff. (Seriously though, I’m exhausted. But things are going well!)

Author Laura Perez discusses Thrill of the Hunt and how it began on a dark and stormy night… I’m just kidding. As the force behind the anthology, she tells the tale the best.

I’m a little behind (I always am with creative endeavors). My muse loves to torture me when I’m under a deadline and apparently thrives under pressure.

Take a look below for Buried’s cover reveal and working synopsis. Mark your calendars for August 1, 2019 and make sure to grab a copy of Thrill of the Hunt: Buried Alive on release day. As with every TOTH Anthology, proceeds will be donated. Last year’s proceeds went to help Puerto Rico recovery efforts, this year’s will be announced soon.

What I’m working on:

Buried: A Burned Short Story

Buried, A Burned Short Story. Releasing August 1, 2019, from Palmas Publishing as part of the Thrill of the Hunt: Buried Alive Anthology.


Petre wakes encased in darkness. With no memory of who he is or how he ended up trapped underground, he frantically searches for an escape before it’s too late.

His memory returning in pieces, Petre weaves together the events of his past. But the picture that emerges terrifies him to his core.

As the strange puzzle is closer to being solved, he realizes that even if he escapes being buried alive, his life—once filled with beauty and light—will forever be seeped in the dark.

What I’m reading:

Praying for Rain by BB Easton

With only three days left until the predicted apocalypse, the small town of Franklin Springs, Georgia, has become a wasteland of abandoned cars, abandoned homes, abandoned businesses, and abandoned people. People like Rainbow Williams.

Rain isn’t afraid of dying. In fact, she’s looking forward to it. If she can just outrun her pain until April 23, she’ll never have to feel it at all.

Wes Parker has survived every horrible thing this life has thrown at him with nothing more than his resourcefulness and disarming good looks. Why should the end of the world be any different? All he needs are some basic supplies, shelter, and a sucker willing to help him out, which is exactly what he finds when he returns to his hometown of Franklin Springs.

As society crumbles, dangers mount, and secrets refuse to stay buried, two lost souls are thrust together in a twist of fate—one who will do anything to survive and one who can’t wait to die.

Perhaps, together, they can learn how to live.

Before their time runs out.

My thoughts:

Holy freaking hell, I loved this book. I’m kinda pissed at myself because I read it on my brand-new KU subscription (which has been totally worth it, btw) and didn’t download the book when it was on sale.

A signed paperback is in my future, that’s for sure.

It’s book one in a three book series so I’ll be waiting (im)patiently for the next book which should be out in the Fall of 2019. I’m not hitting the book event circuit as heavily as in years past (see the aforementioned doing All. The. Things.) But I’ve met her at a few events and she’s awesome. Check out her page at Maybe one day I’ll have her join me on the Mayhem and Musings Podcast.
