Even though the official start of summer is a few days away, it feels like summer arrived weeks ago in Washington. We usually get some soggy days in May and June, but the sun has been shining and the temps have hovered in the seventies and eighties. We just recently moved into our new home and have been in the unpacking process. We sold our previous home and found a home in a small town on the Olympic Peninsula where we can walk to coffee shops, frozen yogurt, and the grocery store. Now, after saying all that, we have only walked to the frozen yogurt shop once… And please promise me the unpacking will stop at some point. I’m at that point where every single time I empty a box, I swear a few more sprout in its place!

Anyway, that’s what’s been happening on our end. Lots of packing and then unpacking and writing in between!!


But I couldn’t miss out on celebrating Hidden Sins’ book birthday!! It turned one this month and to celebrate, I made it FREE on Amazon, Nook, iBooks, and Kobo.

Buried Sins small



Fletcher Security Systems has become one of the largest firms of its type in the world. Luke has mastered how to protect everyone else at all cost without dealing with his own demons. Or so he thinks.

When one of Luke’s top men is captured, he realizes the people who murdered his parents are sending a message loud and clear. He is next. As secrets are unburied, it becomes apparent these people will stop at nothing to get what they want, and they set their sights on Hannah.




iBooks and Kobo available this weekend!


*Winner of the last contest was Lori F. Congrats!

Hope you’re all enjoying 2015. It’s been a busy first couple of months for us. It’s hard to believe we’ve already gotten to Feb. 14th!

***Happy Heart Day everyone!!***

I’ve been working away on Buried Sins and loving every second of it. I caught a cold twice in two weeks, which I didn’t even know was possible, and my husband is finishing up his Media and Communications degree. He only has four more weeks of classes! Not that I’m counting the seconds or anything…

I’m looking forward to sharing Buried Sins with you all very soon, and I hope you enjoy the twists and turns this book has to offer. There is no rest for Luke, Hannah or Mia!

I’m also super excited about the cross-over series that I have coming out, Island County Series. It will be out this spring!! For all you Beyond Love Series readers, this will be a great way to stay in touch with all your favorite characters. Mason will be in the first book and all books will be “stand alones”. I’m beyond thrilled about bridging these two series.

Lastly, I wanted to let you all know that I just dropped the price to FREE on RecruitZ. The pricing is in effect at Kindle, Kobo, and iBooks. I’m hoping it drops at Nook soon. If you haven’t had a chance to read about Preston and Rebekah in the Afterworld, I hope you’ll give it a shot. The series is so much fun to write, and it’s unlike any story out there! I had fun coming up with my own twist, and it’s so great hearing from people who hadn’t ever read a post-apocalyptic book before and now they totally enjoy the genre.

I’ve provided the links to view below, and if you grab a copy, I hope you enjoy!

Contest: Leave a comment about your favorite part of spring and you’ll be entered to win a $10 Amazon card during the release week of Buried Sins.

I’ll talk to you soon…

Zombies like never before… Welcome to the Afterworld.

Have you tasted fear? I have. It’s bitter and lingers in your mouth long after the moment has passed. That fear kept me alive during the apocalypse. I never stopped moving, and I never gave up hope.

The outbreak is over and vaccinations have been administered, but I’m tasting that fear again. Why? Because the undead have returned, and this time there’s no stopping them or the people who control them.

The outbreak might be over, but the nightmare is just beginning.


(Afterworld #2) Available Now!

AlibiZ Afterworld Series smaller

Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00OXAX5EG/karibolt-20

Rebekah vows to expose the truth behind the RecruitZ that are killing the innocents. These creatures must be stopped, but so should the people controlling them. When Rebekah uncovers who is behind the uprisings, her own life becomes in danger.

Rebekah knows that she is not alone in this fight but vengeance alone won’t help her and the others to victory. It is up to her to uncover the truth for the public before the world is turned over to an elite few.

Regardless of what may happen to her, she knows it’s a race against time to destroy these creatures and the monsters controlling them before there is no one left worth saving.



(Afterworld #3) – Coming in 2015!


P.S. The winner from the last contest was Debbie! An email has been sent. Congrats!!

I’m so excited to share Beyond Chance with you today! It was so much fun writing about Aaron and Brandy in Paris. I hope you enjoy reading their story as much as I enjoyed writing it. <3

In the back of Beyond Chance, I’ve announced a new series that I’ll be beginning in 2015. I’m so happy about it, and I think all the Beyond Love Series readers will be too! The first book will be about Mason Rhodes from the Beyond Love Series. The Island County Series will be out in early 2015. A fun thing about this series is that each book will be a standalone, but characters from the Beyond Love Series will pop in from time to time.

To celebrate the release of Beyond Chance, I’m offering up a $10 Amazon card. All you have to do is leave a comment and a winner will be randomly chosen. Woohoo!!

Beyond Chance:

Brandy hopes that moving to Paris with Aaron will shield her from the turmoil back in the states. With the trial about to start, she soon realizes running from her past only threatens her future.

As Aaron readies himself for his first gallery opening in Paris, he begins to show another side. It’s up to Brandy to decipher who the real Aaron is, and what it is he wants in life. She refuses to be the person who gets in the way of his dreams.

When a chance encounter with someone in Paris allows Brandy to fully see the man she loves for who he is and not who she thought him to be, she begins to understand the ghosts that have taunted Aaron for so many years.

It’s only then she realizes they must deal with the issues straight on, even if that means letting the other go.

We’ve had a busy December with lots of friends and family stopping by all month to help spread the holiday cheer! I’m a tad bit behind this December and hope to finish wrapping presents this afternoon. That’s the hope, but it might actually be this evening before I get to it… so wish me luck! The unwrapped gifts are stacking up!! But Jon managed to wrap some of his so our tree isn’t completely without. Our tree turned out to be way wider than it looked outside so squeezing by it can be an exciting challenge as the ornaments jangle from being bumped.

We’ve ordered our Christmas roast, and I look forward to spending time with family and friends (as I silently plot the last half of Buried Sins).

Thank you all for being so supportive of the Beyond Love Series and I hope you enjoy Beyond Chance.

Merry Christmas!


And the $5 Amazon card winner of the Beyond Chance release day contest is Lori F. Congrats!

Hope you’ve all had a lovely start to December! I just wanted to let you know that I’m having a Flash Sale on the first book in the Afterworld Series, RecruitZ.

If you’ve wondered about the Afterworld, now is the time to try it out! It’s unlike any zombie series out there, and I’ve just loved the twists that keep coming.

RecruitZ Blurb:

Have you tasted fear? I have. It’s bitter and lingers in your mouth long after the moment has passed. That fear kept me alive during the apocalypse. I never stopped moving, and I never gave up hope.

The outbreak is over and vaccinations have been administered, but I’m tasting that fear again. Why? Because the undead have returned, and this time there’s no stopping them or the people who control them. But I refuse to give up.

The outbreak might be over, but the nightmare is just beginning.


So what is the contest?

Leave a comment, tweet, and/or share about the Flash Sale this weekend. I’ve added some images you can use if that is helpful. Just leave the link to your share and one person will win a $10 Amazon card! Pretty simple but so very helpful to me. The winner will be chosen on December 10th!!

All shares and one-clicks this weekend are greatly appreciated, and I hope you enjoy the Afterworld!!!
