Hey Ladies!  I'm over at Kwana Writes giving a short interview about my second book, Strictly Professional!  Take some time to check it out, and check out the rest of her blog while you're there.  She has some great author interviews, writing information, and other general awesomeness. And did I mention she was a writer as well?  If you're looking for a good read, about the toll an affair can take on a marriage, and the aftermath, check out her novel Bounce! (I purchased Bounce with my own money, and thoroughly enjoyed it.) Also be on the lookout soon for...

So. I was tired of not saying what I wanted to say. I was tired on censoring myself, and being worried about people would think, etc etc. On social media, in general public, on my blog, in my books. It was crippling, really. So I made a decision. I'm an adult.  I have no interest in living my life by the standards set by others. So, henceforth, I am: (I didn't make this, but it's awesome.) Now, of course I'm always mindful of being kind to others, not purposely being an asshole, etc.  I'm not snarky by any means, that's just not me. A little...

Heeey! Do you need something to read? Well, you're in luck! Check out new release Indiscretion by Dahlia Savage! You can find it at: Amazon Barnes & Noble iTunes  Smashwords I'm also including the excerpt and cover for your viewing pleasure!  Do enjoy! Chapter One   I’m being watched. I can feel it. Relaxing at the hotel’s poolside, Elisa can’t shake the feeling that someone is looking directly at her. She peeks over her sunglasses and tries not to look paranoid as she investigates who may be checking her out. Everyone else around the pool is minding their own business. But still, she can feel it. She looks up from her lounge chair,...

It's been a while since we've done this, so yeah, let's do it! I've been having to take sleeping pills to get ANY amount of sleep at night, and it's totally frustrating and scary. I have an insane fear of becoming accidentally addicted to any kind of pill. This is related to the first point. I'm back on the weight loss wagon, again. Let's see how long the trip is this time. We were planning to vacation in California this year, but we changed out minds once we started realizing how stressful the planning was, and how freaking expensive it was getting.  It just...

It can't just be me. Really, it can't. I can't be the only one longing for the opportunity to just do nothing. To sit in my bed with the covers a pillows piled high, a nice long new book on the kindle, kids asleep, and husband on the xbox.  No homework, no required reading, no design deadlines, no writing goals, just nothing.  For hours.  Maybe even a whole day.  A whole damn day of nothing.  Wouldn't that be wonderful? But there's always something.  Another design project I could take on.  A chance to get ahead on class work.  A scene that just won't...

Yeah, that happened.  I wrote two books in just four months.  It just kinda happened like that.  That wasn't the plan, and I'm not even sure it was healthy, but it's done now! With the first one, I found myself so consumed with the idea of finishing that I rushed through it, and I can now look back and see the mistakes that I made.  I moved forward into SP with those mistakes in mind, and I can say, without any bias ( heh.) that my work is much improved.This second book is everything that the first one should have been. I...

(I completed my second novel this morning, and I'm feeling very excited!  Please enjoy this excerpt, which is chapter one of Strictly Professional.) Chapter One ----Gabi---- I shouldn’t have let Regina talk me into this.  I don’t wanna be here. And yet, here I was.  I hadn’t unpacked my bags, and I barely had time to shower away the memory of my awful flight before my new roommate dragged me out the door, insisting that I needed to have a little fun. But I definitely wasn’t having fun.  This was decidedly not fun. I’m sure Regina had good intentions when she invited me out.  If my...

That's me.  THAT'S ME.  How weird is that? Just four months ago, I never would have thought that I would be a published author.  Not only that, people actually like the book.  Surreal, is what it is. I am working, impatiently, through my second novel, Strictly Professional.  Only 7 chapters in, but already at 104 pages, and 28k words.  And would you believe that I'm already thinking about the sequel?  Itching to write a scene for it?  and thinking about the plot for the spin off?  So that's 2 other novels right there, plus the idea that was supposed to come before...
