Deadlines are useful, but they're also frustrating!

They're useful because they present a goalpost to work toward. They're frustrating when you can't meet those goalposts.

But the rewards are nice. It's always a good feeling being able to look at the end product after you've worked so hard to bring it to life, and after many, many hours doing rewrites, edits, and rereads, it gives me a wonderful sense of accomplishment when I'm finally finished.

After many postponements to my latest Young Adult Urban Fantasy series, The Girl in the Leather Jacket, I see the light at the end of the tunnel. As the ticker to your left shows, it will be released this coming Friday, March 9th, on at least three sites: Amazon, Smashwords, and my latest one, When the finished manuscript is submitted to all three sites (Smashwords distributes to other sites such as Barns&Noble, iBooks, etc) I will make the links above live.

For my For Life fans: Once I'm finished with this first book of the new four-book series, I'll finish the touch ups on Ch.8 to "For Life" and submit it. The goal is to have it on Fine Stories this weekend. Hopefully, I can meet that goal, but you can be assured I'll work hard to meet that goalpost.

For those interested, I've made a book trailer for The Girl in the Leather Jacket, and I'm posting it here. I hope this works because this is the first time I'm doing this.

Anyway, you can go to my YouTube Channel and see all the videos of my book trailers, if you're interested.
This dang thing took me two days to make - which is a record, as in, record slow. I usually make a book trailer in about four hours so you can imagine my frustration when this one took so long! But I wanted to get it right, and considering the type of music (not really my type of music - my daughter chose it) I had to create images that coincided with the beat.

Anyway, I hope you'll enjoy it.


  1. Nice book trailer kitty Cat. You should post it on FB.

  2. lol Kitty Cat! I forgot to do that - I'll correct that oversight and post the book trailer on my FB.

    Thanks for the advice!
