It's a Wrap...Where to Now?

Indie Fall Fest was a complete success and our last posts went live a couple of days ago. Thank you to all the authors who participated and donated books, swag, gift cards, etc. Hopefully you guys got a chance to discover a few new authors throughout our event. Thank you Kristen for asking me to be a part of it! It was a ton of work, but I am happy we could partner on something with such an awesome message. 

You still have a little less than a week to enter the HUGE giveaway which has over 140 books up for grabs and $70 in gift cards.  Enter here.

So much has happened since the beginning of Indie Fall Fest, and I've been dying to update you all on everything. 
First of all, I published my fifth book about a week ago, my NA zombie novel, Into the Darkness! It has exceeded all my expectations and already has 20 reviews, 12 of which are 5-stars! People are connecting with the characters, loving the action, and dying to know what happens next. I've already began outlining the second book in the series, Emerging from Darkness...and I can tell you it is going to be shocking. A lot happened in the first book? It's going to be a shit storm the second book. My poor characters!
I have a newsletter now! You can sign up to stay up-to-date on my new releases, promotions, sales, etc. I promise I won't spam. Sign up here

I also now have a PA and a street team. I am so excited. So many possibilities are right at the tips of my fingertips. It's so crazy to think these people believe in me and my stories and want to be a part of the journey! It's exciting. 
I am running a Thunderclap for a Black Friday sale of The Fighter. It is going to be .99 cents for Black Friday weekend. Want to support my TC? There's a few more days. Go here
There is a blitz happening for Beautifully Broken beginning tomorrow through the 26th. Over 25 blogs are participating. My PA set it up and I am really excited about it! Beautifully Broken has always been a little overlooked. There will also be about 10 bloggers reviewing the story in the next couple of months...so I am definitely looking forward to that. 
Here are the blogs who will be participating:
I have a couple of things I am working on behind the scenes that I am really excited about and can't wait to share with you all when the time is right! Things are slowly falling into place and it's really exciting. 

I am currently working on Against All Odds for #Nanowrimo. I just recently hit 35k words. I am shooting for 50k, but knowing me, it may come in just under. Beautifully Broken is only around 44k. Austyn & Avery's story has been a difficult one to tell, but ultimately beautiful. As I near the finish line, I become more anxious because this has been a highly anticipated novel. A lot of people are counting on me to tell their story and do it justice. I hope I have done just that. 

I also made the decision, thanks to my amazing PA, that I am going to be writing a Infinite Love novella that will begin the series. I haven't outlined anything yet, but it is going to be around 20-30k words. I am planning on offering it for free when I do. I can't believe I am so close to finishing the entire series. It really feels like I've been working on this for years because of how long I've been messing around with My Forever

I think 2015 is going to be my year. I really do. Apart from writing, I've been spending quite a bit of time making music with my partner in crime, Jesse. Together we make up a musical duo called DarienMae. He creates the beats and then we write the lyrics together. I can already see our potential and it's so inspiring. My New Years resolution is going to be to make big strides in both my writing and my music. And this time, I actually think I will be able to make it happen.
