Watcher Hits Amazon Bestseller List

You know how I said I was going underground to finish Betrayer? Well, that was mostly true, but I couldn’t resist coming up for air for this one.

Watcher has made the Amazon Bestseller List for Kindle in several categories including:

  • #5 in Paranormal Angel Romance
  • #19 in Urban Fantasy
  • #395 in Kindle Books overall



Thanks so much, you guys!



Going Underground


I’m back from Authors After Dark (AAD). It was brilliant and awesome and chaotic and exhausting and every other spectacular word I can come up with rolled into one. It’s probably safe to say that the convention went out with a bang, and that while most people are sorry to see it end (AAD 2016 was the last one), everyone can agree that they had the time of the life.

Including me.

But now reality has come screeching back into the picture, and I’m at Chez Small eyeing up 6 loads of laundry and many boxes to unpack while wondering what now?

The answer is simple: I’m going underground. Again.

Yep. Afraid so. The summer went by way too quickly, and my deadlines went out the window. I’ve got so much catching up to do that it’s not even funny. October is only six weeks away, people. SIX WEEKS. My mind boggles.

There is no help for it, but to barricade myself in my house. Anything short of that means my brain is likely to wander . . . “Look, Squirrel!”

Yes, just like that.

Their enthusiasm, support, and amazing productivity is exactly what I needed to scare myself back onto the road of the righteous writer. I’m on it. It’s happening. Woo hoo.

So if you don’t see me around as often here or on FB or Twitter, you’ll know why. But fret not, Betrayer is still on course to be out by the end of year.

Stay tuned.

AAD Bound

It’s been a busy summer here in Watcherland. Two months have flown by in a blink of an eye, and if you asked me to write an essay on “What I did on my summer vacation” you’d probably be slightly bemused. That’s okay, I am, too.

But right now, I’m in Authors After Dark (AAD) countdown mode.


I’m currently trapped under a pile of costumes that makes me look like a cosplayer while trying to figure out how to pack a rainbow wig in a box. I’m not kidding.

So I’ll still be MIA for the next week or so as I go meet readers and do crazy, wacky things down in Savannah, Georgia. If you’re thinking about going, you can still get tickets here.

If you just want to stop by and say hello, the book signing is open to the public on Saturday, August 6th from 2-4PM in the Marriott on River street which is located here.

And for those who are already attendees, you can find me in all these fun places during the show (when I’m not passed out from utter exhaustion).


See you on the other side.
