There ARE some awesome food scenes in I Can Handle Him and while some are left craving the cinnamon rolls or the cookies, Vivian at The Book Diva's Reads was left craving tacos! Tacos are, after all, the favorite food of one of our main characters, Daniel.
Read her review on her blog. And thank you, Vivian, for the review!

They sure do! Read more about why that opening is so significant on the Mississippi's Bookworm Diva blog. And thanks, Cassandra, for the post!
"It was very well written, so that we go through the shock and grief along with everyone else, and then feel outraged on Nick's behalf when he's treated so terribly." - Girl Who Reads

JBronder Book Reviews has published an excerpt of chapter three of I Can Handle Him. Quinn finally comes face-to-face with her secret crush, Nick, and we learn a whole bunch about the trouble Nick has been in before. But it's the last line of the chapter that should leave you guessing...

Love this excerpt from I Can Handle Him which was published today on the Motherhood Moment blog. Read the entire excerpt on her blog! (Or even better, read the entire book!)
Why on earth would Al say that Nick caused Sienna’s accident? How could Nick make a car explode? Why would he even want to kill Sienna? It’s ridiculous to think he would have done anything intentionally malicious. That’s not the Nick who Tory knows. At least, not the Nick she used to know.
And she used to know him…very well.
Sheila Deeth's blog has a great interview with me about my publishing journey. Check out the story, and her blogs AND her books! And thank you, Sheila, for posting!
One night, I got off of the treadmill, opened my laptop and began to type...and that's how my first novel began.
Read more about my accidental journey to become an author at Digital Pubbing, a super cool website that explores the ins and outs of publishing. Here's a sneak peak from #10 to #8. To read the full article, visit Digital Pubbing's site.
I never set out to write a book. I’m not a reader, so books aren’t part of my everyday life. But now that I’ve written five novels, it’s fun to look back at how it all began. Here’s a countdown from the beginning on my publishing journey.
10. I had a story rambling around in my brain. One night, I got off of the treadmill, opened my laptop, and began to type.
9. Two months later, I thought maybe I had written a book. I Googled the words: “What do you do if you think you wrote a book” and devoured the answers. I read blogs. I ordered “How To Get Published” books.
8. According to the blogs and books from #9, I had done everything wrong. So, I tweaked my manuscript.

Curious to know how ideas come to me or who inspires me? The Authors & Readers Book Corner has published an interview with me as part of our blog tour. Thanks, Theresa, for the shout out (and especially including the book trailer in your post). Follow their blog for more reviews on great books!
Here's a excerpt of their post. Read the full interview here.
Where/When do you best like to write?
I’ve written three books in Virginia, and two in Texas, and those two in Texas were written in two different locations. So apparently it doesn’t matter to me where I write!
Do you have any interesting writing habits or superstitions?
After I get a story idea in my head, I begin a “scribble book.” My scribble books are simple spiral-bound notebooks where I capture all of my ideas. The scribble books are so handy when you need to go back to check on something you researched or want to change a character’s name and need to remember the first names that had come to mind.
When you are struggling to write/have writer’s block, what are some ways that help you find your creative muse again?
Flying on an airplane! That is where I do most of my story conceptualizing.
What do you think makes a good story?
Characters that make you wish you were them (and characters that make you thankful you are NOT them too!)
