My body begins to tremble.  Not just a little but a lot.  Tears begin forming in my eyes.

“You’re telling me that my brother and fiancée were in the basement when it exploded?” I barely whisper the words but all those around me hear me.  I can tell by the eyes shifting away from me that no one wants to be the one to tell me.

“Answer me! Damn it someone just answer me!”

Panic begins clawing at my chest.  It’s been a few years since I had a full blown panic attack but I recognize the symptoms immediately.  My hand clutches my chest at it tightens.  My breathing becomes more rapid and shallow.

“Kat…” I hear Luke call me name but it’s as if he is miles away from me not standing right beside me. I feel arms wrap around me.

“Yes Mr. Knight and Mr. Roberts were in the basement when it exploded.”

Those words are the last I hear before my world pitches into a black abyss.

Meet The Author

Mari has been writing as far back as she can remember. She spent most of her teen years writing short stories for her friends, it was a hobby for her even though she was published in the school newspaper.

She met and married her very own Alpha male 21 years ago and they have a 20 year old daughter, and two sons ages 17 and 16. They have 3 dogs and a cat. There is never a dull moment around the house. They live on the beautiful Gulf Coast of Alabama and are blessed to have a home on the river and to have the beach just 20 minutes away.

Over the years she wrote a few short stories in between raising babies but it wasn’t until 2012 she decided she needed to pursue her dream of writing a full novel. It took a while but in January of 2014 her debut novel was self-published. There is always a story in her head and characters talking to her. She enjoys being able to share her characters with others.

#BacktoBooks Challenge

#BacktoBooks Challenge

Kellie Montgomery, Christine Stanley and other Bloggers have issued a challenge…I’m jumping on the bandwagon…and I don’t jump on many bandwagons…

When: May 16-22, 2016 (or longer)

The Challenge:  Let’s get back to why we are all here on Social media.  BOOKS!!!!  The Indie World I joined in 2012 is not the one I belong to in 2016. The only drama in the Indie World should be on the pages of our books.

Below is the original challenge issued by Kellie Montgomery on her Facebook.

Today I present us all a challenge I hope you’ll accept as I think we as a community need it. For one week, seven whole days starting May 16th, I, along with Christine Stanley and several of our blogger friends challenge all of us to go back to why we came here and post just books. No rants, no political soap box speeches, no models’ outrageous behavior, no signing hosts that steal from authors, no berating bad review leavers, no KU is a cunt posts….just the good stuff about the books that brought us together in the first place. You know, before drama weaseled its way into the forefront and became more important to dwell on than the words on the pages.If you accept, there is only one rule- you keep it positive and about the books. I am calling it ‪#‎BacktoBooks, thanks to my BFF Dana Leah and whenever you post about books, whether it is to share one of yours, a snippet of your WIP, what signing you’ll be at next, what you’re reading now, who you recommend people read- whatever it is, using that hashtag will get you shared by everyone else taking the challenge with us. I honestly think the week of refocusing our energies may help turn around a sinking ship and become a permanent change as I see every day and know of personal experiences from friends, that people are fleeing this community. Running and hiding from what they used to love because we have let the nasty just take over it all. Authors quitting writing and bloggers not wanting to read anymore, readers only taking chances on books they can get for free because they’re too turned off by the bad attitudes of us all to show support and buy them- I don’t think that is really what we want to see happen. So will you accept the challenge to go #BacktoBooks?

I placed my latest release on sale the weekend of Mother’s day and I have never seen a 99cent book not sell.  Sales were awful and I think a lot of it was due to the lack of focus on books that weekend.  I have seen numerous posts from other authors of declining sales and I can’t help but wonder how much come from the negativity floating around the Indie Community.  There are exceptions who are doing well but the majority are true struggling artist these days.  Let the struggles not be because of our own drama and negativity as a community of authors, bloggers, readers etc.

I hope to see many of you accepting the challenge. You can make a difference one positive post at a time.  Let’s once again become a community to be proud of!

April Month End

April Month End

Beyond the Edge is back from all Betas.  I’m excited by the response from the Betas.  I think Kat and Cole’s story just improves with each book.  In addition  the secondary characters are chomping to tell their stories as well.  I am re structuring my plans for this series.  I originally plotted it to go a certain way but as I have learned the characters have a way of taking over.  All full length novels in the series will be about Kat and Cole but there will be novellas featuring many of the other characters you love. I am still aiming for a June 2016 release for Beyond the Edge.

I want to give a special shout out to some readers:

Veronica G.  You have been with me for a long time now and every day I come on to Facebook and see where you have tagged me promoting me and my work on a blog.  Thank you for your efforts.  You are appreciated more than you realize.

Tara D. you have just come on board but your willingness to help promote my books on social media is already making a huge impact.  Even if its to my peace of mind more than anything.  I can’t tell you enough how much this means to me.  I look forward to working with you.

Don’t forget to follow me on social media so you don’t miss out on anything.
