You see that headline up there? Those are two sentences I never thought I would ever utter (or, errr, write) in the same breath.

But it’s true. In preparation for professional authordom, I recently bit the bullet and got myself a real headshot, by a real photographer, in a real studio. That I paid real money for.

Even though I really didn’t want to.

And it turned out to be an amazing experience.

This is one of the photos the photographer took, but it’s not the best one:

To see my real favorite, you’re going to have to check out the other blog. The author-y one. I’m talking about 5 reasons getting a professional headshot is totally worth it over there tonight…

I’ll write you a real post soon. But right now, I need to get back to book #2. The deadline is rapidly approaching. Wish me luck!

Who Wants To See My Book’s Cover?

by Amber on July 6, 2014

Do you want to see the cover of All’s Fair in Lust & War? You know, that Harlequin KISS book I wrote that will be published on September 1?

You know you do.

Ready? Here we go.

Wait? What?

Don’t worry. That’s not the whole thing. But if you want to see it, you need to head over to my new Author Blog. That’s right, I’m getting all fancy on you.

Mostly that’s so I can keep spilling my guts over here without worrying,  but also because, you know. I’m a Published Author. I’ve got to have a Platform. So I can Sell Books.

What’s with the random capitalization? I have no idea. I’m just tired.

Anyway, go check it out. Over there. Please?

Unexpected Grief.

June 16, 2014
Every good bye could be the last one. Treat it accordingly.

Tweet The last time I saw him, it was my brother’s birthday. He’d kept us laughing all evening with his sly jokes, and had affectionately called me 3.14 (his childhood nickname for me) at least once. I rolled my eyes, of course, but I didn’t mind. It was our thing. He eventually got up to […]

Tweet I remember dancing through the warm summer grass,  my heart singing a happy tune as I listened to my grandma chatter. “I’m here with my pride and joy,” she said to the gravestone as she pulled at the weeds obscuring its face. “She reminds me a lot of you. Oh, how you would have […]

A Visit to the “Happiest Place on Earth”

Tori meet Cinderella

Tweet Ahhhh, Disney World. A world full of magic. Where smiles are constant, families are relaxed, and stress is nowhere to be found. Wait. What? I’ve just come back from there, and I wouldn’t describe it as pure magic. I would describe it as often magical, frequently stressful, and, every once in a while, temper […]

Listen Up, Because I’m Only Going to Say This Once.

Tweet We were on hour four of a deadly boring road trip to Michigan last weekend when my husband blurted, “what are you going to do when people criticize you for writing romance novels?” At least that’s what I think he said. I only caught the last half because he started talking about five seconds […]
