A Small Update...

Hi all! Just checking in and letting you know that all is well in Erika land. The Unraveling of Melody and Ace's Fall will be released very soon. One is with my editor and I'm finishing up writing the other. I'm thinking they will be released by mid-January but I make no promises ;-)

After those are done I'll be taking a little breather and spending some QT with my family and TBR list before I go back to writing full time. After February I will have a lot more time to dedicate to writing.

I hope all is well with you.

A few updates...

As you may know, I've been suffering from writers block. It sucks. Like, really sucks. I've been in this downward spiral of self-doubt and a blank brain. It's been bad and it's caused me to get a little depressed. This last week I've felt myself coming back and I plan to bust of Ace's Fall on time (by November 29th). I'm disappointed in myself because I feel like since it's a novella I should have finished quickly but at the same time I don't want to put out a rushed book. My mind is my worst enemy.
Anywho, Ace's Fall will be on time but The Unraveling of Melody has been delayed. It won't be released until December. I'm very sorry for this, I'll try to get it out earlier but I pushed back the date just to be safe. It has been changed on Amazon so if you pre-ordered it, Amazon should be notifying you about the push back.
On the bright side, I'm feeling much more confident in my writing (for now) and I plan on using that to my advantage.
Again, I'm very sorry for the delay's, it's been a rough few months for me. Thank you all for all of your support, it means more to me than you know.

Hi all!

It's been a while since I've posted so I thought I'd fill you in on what's going on. I finished Ace's Wild and it is now available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble. It will soon be available on most other platforms but I'm dealing with Smashwords' formatting hurdles. It's been a pain in the ass but I'll do what I have to do to get it in as many places as I can.
    I'm currently working on 3 different WIP's. Here's what I'm working on and when I'm hoping to release them:

*Ace's Fall (Ace's Prequel novella)- hopefully this will be out by November/December. It will be posted to all platforms as FREE.

*The Unraveling of Melody (Mel's Prequel novella)- This will come out the same time as Ace's Fall and it will also be posted as FREE.

*Maybe Memories- This is the first book in a new NA series that I am working on. I plan on releasing it in January-ish.

After those are complete I have two more books to write in each series. Basically, I have a lot of writing to get done :-)

I also have added a few new signings, one of which I'm co-hosting with some amazing ladies! I'm very excited with what this next year has in store for me. It will be loads of amazingness!

As always, if you have any questions about anything, feel free to email me or message me on Facebook! I love talking to readers!

A little announcement... Kind of.

Heyyy all! Happy Memorial Day!

Since getting my webpage a little more together I decided to let you in on a few more projects that are in the works. Check out the "Current Projects" tab if you'd like to see what's to come. I'm so excited for what this year has to bring!

In other news, Ace's Wild is coming along. The release date was pushed back a little bit but I still plan on a summer release. I cannot wait for you all to meet Ace Caplin! He's not your typical asshole rock star. He screws up like any normal human being but it's mesmerizing to watch his journey unfold. I only have the book outlined to an extent so I'm always surprised by roads his life is taking him down. Let's not forget Melody, that girl has some drama too. Just wait until you see her story unfold.

That's all for now! I'll be sure to keep up with you all more and keep you updated on my progress.




I've also added the signing events that I will be in attendance for! Please be sure to check that out as well.

Hello! Welcome to my brand spankin' new author page! I will post everything about my books here. Teasers, Excerpts, Cover Reveals, maybe even GIVEAWAYS :-)

Here's a few random facts about me-

This is me :-)

-I hate clowns. I can't even look at the cover of It, it gives me the chills even thinking about it.

-I run the blog My Book Inspired Ramblings. I love every second of it :-)

-I have lots of tattoos. If you want a number I'd say 8, one of which is a half sleeve. I plan on getting more!

- I LOVE music! All kinds. Country, folk, hardcore, emo, rap, motown and more. I'm not picky.

-I'm almost always listening to Pandora radio. My favorite stations are - The Used Radio (Which I am currently listening to.), Miranda Lambert Radio, The Civil Wars Radio, and 60's, 70's and 80's Radio.

-I'm always changing my hair color. I'm pretty sure if my hair could talk it would tell me how much it hated me for always changing it LOL

-I used to be a manager at a coffee shop and I miss it SO much! Every coffee shops lingo is different but my drink of choice for the coffee shop I worked at was "Triple-short-iced-white mocha-restricted-half the white chocolate-extra ice-and a dome lid" I'm difficult, I know LOL but it's SO delicious... Now I want one.

I could keep it going but I don't want to bore you :-P

I'll post more as I write more in my debut novel Ace's Wild due to be released Summer 2014! I'm so excited!
