A "McKade" Update...sort of :)

I've had quite a few people ask about the next McKade book and when it's going to be released, so I figured I'd put a little post together to give y'all an update on what's going on. 

First let me tell you why the book isn't out yet (because I know that a year between series books is crazy long). Around the time I released Zane I already had 25k words (out of 70k +) completed in Norah's story with the intention of having it released Dec 2012/Jan 2013 time. However something happened with the story that called for a MAJOR rewrite. I'm talking scrap the whole darn thing and start all over kind of rewrite....which sucked. I am currently working on the new version and my plan is to have Norah's story out later this year.

I really, REALLY appreciate y'all asking about the book and letting me know how excited you are to read it. Reaching out to me like that really makes my day! I promise I'll keep y'all updated and if by any chance I can get the…

Happy 4th of July!!!

Happy 4th of July, everyone! Today my family and I are spending the day relaxing and enjoying each others company. We'll probably spend some time in the pool and have a lot of outside time since the weather is going to be nice today (hot but no rain...we've had sooooo much rain lately that I still have standing water in parts of my yard). Later we'll be attending our good friends' BBQ and watching some fireworks. I'm looking forward to seeing a bunch of people I haven't seen in a while and catching up!
I hope y'all are having a great day and that you have a safe and fun holiday!

My "Uncharted: An On the Island Novella" by Tracey Garvis Graces Review

Uncharted: An On the Island Novella
By: Tracey Garvis Graves
Publisher: Penguin
Publication Date: July 2, 2013
Genre: Contemporary Romance

When twenty-three-year-old dot-com millionaire Owen Sparks walked away from his charmed life, he had one goal in mind: get as far away as possible from the people who resented his success, or had their hand out for a piece of it. A remote uncharted island halfway around the world seemed like a perfectly logical place to get away from it all. 

Calia Reed wasn't part of Owen's plans. The beautiful British girl - on holiday in the Maldives with her brother, James - made Owen wonder if getting away from it all might be a lot more enjoyable with a carefree girl who didn't know anything about the life he left behind. 

But Owen had no idea how much his carefully detailed plans would go awry. Nor did he realize that a decision he made would have such a catastrophic effect on two passengers who boarded a plane in Chicago. 

And when Owen shows up at Anna…


Happy Monday, y'all! I hope you're having a great day so far. I can't believe it's JULY already! Things have been pretty good in my neck of the woods. My husband and I have been taking advantage of the good weather to get some work done around our house. We've got the majority of the big projects done so now I'll be able to focus on my writing a little better. Things are moving along slowly with Norah's story but don't worry, I promise I'll get it done as soon as I possibly can. I'm hoping to get to a point here soon where I'm comfortable sharing bits and pieces of the story :) I'll keep y'all posted along the way!
