#RRBC Blog and Block Party!

Welcome to my blog during this fantastic RRBC block party! Today I'm going to be giving some stuff away and letting you know a little bit about two of my books: Ripples Through Time and Second Chances.

Between these two books, I have won more than twelve literary awards. They are some of my favorite books and were by far the hardest to write, each taking multiple years to put together. First, though, the giveaway!

Ripples Through Time

This was one of the first books I ever wrote and published, and it means a lot to me. I actually had it re-edited nearly a year after it came out by RRBC member Harmony Kent to make sure it was in the best possible form and have sold a few thousand copies of it. It means a lot to me because it is an amalgamation of many family and friends I've grown up in during my life.

It won an award at Reader's Favorite, another at Literary Classics, and yet another at New Apple.

Calvin Greenwood is a family man in his eighties. He is alone for the first time in over sixty years: his wife, Emily, just passed away and he isn't taking her loss well. He doesn't remember how to be alone, and he isn't sure if he can forgive himself for the mistakes he made while she was alive.

Edward White is a long time family friend who knows something is wrong with Calvin. He comes to check on him during his time of need and make sure he isn't planning to do anything reckless. Edward understands just how dangerous things are for someone struggling the way Calvin is, and he hopes talking to him can settle things back down. He just hopes he isn't too late to help.

Help, however, isn't the easiest thing to give, and it can be even more difficult to accept...

Love, loss, and forgiveness weave through this human tale of friendship and hope.


Second Chances

This one has won more than seven awards, including the Reader's Favorite Silver Medal, an award from Literary Classics, two awards from New Apple, and quite a few more.

Nichole is caught in a tough position. She is juggling too many responsibilities as her world falls apart. She isn’t sure where she can turn to for help, and she is facing a lot of harsh realities about just how much society can hold her back.

Richard is a corporate lawyer who lost his way. He wants to help Nichole through this heartbreaking situation, but he makes mistakes and loses her trust. He discovers that he’s been doing the right things for the wrong reasons for a long time. Everything begins to fall apart as he realizes he's swept problems under the rug for so long he might no longer be able to fix them. After meeting an alcoholic who is struggling to take control of his life, Richard wakes up to just how far off-course his life has become and attempts to right it.

Can Nichole and Richard overcome their differences and earn a Second Chance in this multiple award-winning novel?


A little bit more about me...

I write mostly horror, at least recently, but I've also published some sci-fi and have a lot of fun writing fantasy, too. Books like the ones mentioned above hold a special place in my heart and are considerably more difficult to write than genre fiction.

I started writing when I was about ten and kept with it, and I'm currently working on about five more projects I'm hoping to get published by the end of the year.

Thanks for stopping by and remember to leave a comment below! Good luck winning one of the above books, and I hope you find as much meaning in them as I do!

PS, both of these books are also available in audio format, paperback, and hard copy! With whisper sync, if you buy Second Chances in e-book format you can buy the audio one at a huge discount!
