I had the honor of being interviewed by E. Rachael Hardcastle on her popular podcast The White Room yesterday while on my blog book tour for Blogging is Murder. It was such fun! You can listen to it below. In the interview you will learn such things as: Where I got the ideas for my […]
I’m so excited to announce the line-up for the Blogging is Murder Blog Book Tour starting next week! I’ve gotten an enthusiastic welcome from other authors and book bloggers, and I’m so very grateful to each and every one! The blog book tour starts Sunday, Feb. 12 and runs through Sunday, Feb. 26th, with […]
In the first book of the series, Blogging is Murder, all the trouble starts when Jade Blackwell’s friend and fellow blogger, Liz Collins, has her cyber-security breached. A hacker accesses all of her online business accounts, including her blog and social media accounts. YIKES! While researching for the book, I learned a great deal […]
They say you should write what you know, so it’s no accident that Jade and I have many things in common. When I had the idea for the book, I was struggling, trying to build up a blog. I was frustrated and exhausted because there was always more to do than I could get […]
