All I have to say is, What.A.Week.
I have no idea what happened, but the week was going along swimmingly, and then BAM like rapid fire, the days ticked off and all of a sudden it’s Friday, I have a mile long to-do list, and what seems like 5 minutes to get everything accomplished.
I’m throwing myself a little “release party” this weekend for Red Picket Fences. It’s really just an excuse to get some local friends together and eat all of the cupcakes, and maybe (definitely) have a glass of wine or two. I’ve got a lot of house cleaning and cooking to do, but I’m really looking forward to it.
Wednesday was a complete wash because I had a scary yet potentially comical (maybe one day?) mishap with some professionally applied false eyelashes. In a sad attempt to glam myself up for the party, I used a gift card my friend generously gave to me to have eyelashes put on. I had them applied at 10:30 AM, and they looked beautiful! The lashes of my dreams. The best part was, I didn’t see or feel them. Until… 3:30 PM rolled around, and all of a sudden, my eyesight went completely blurry. I couldn’t read, and then I couldn’t make out the features of people’s faces. My father rushed me to the salon to get them removed, and as it happened, there was an eye Dr. right next door. They patched me up, and I’m seeing much better today (not 100% but way better). Sometimes the price of beauty isn’t worth it. Lesson learned.
Moving right along, I have some exciting news to share, I have a new release, a freebie, and a cover reveal!

The Corpse in the Cabana (Viola Roberts Cozy Mysteries Book 1)
Sassy, snarky Viola Roberts quit her boring accountant job to pursue her dream of writing novels, even if it meant eating ramen noodles every day. Now that her career has taken off, she’s headed to a writers’ conference at an exotic Florida resort complete with white sand beaches and swaying palm trees where she plans to lounge in the shade drinking frosty beverages with little umbrellas. And, of course, no sojourn to tropical climes would be complete without her boozy, wise-cracking best friend, Cheryl.
When Viola discovers the diva of the author world dead (as a doornail) of unnatural causes, the police immediately consider Viola their prime suspect. But when the head detective turns a gimlet eye on Viola’s best friend, the author has had enough! Along with help from a hunky fellow writer, Lucas Salvatore, Viola is determined to ascertain who killed the corpse in the cabana before she, or Cheryl, wind up in jail. Or worse.
