LIFT 4 Autism Online Auction: Monday, April 24 – Friday, April 28

Autism.
A mystery to some. A way of life for others. A cause for all since it is now the fastest growing and most common disability in the US. 1 in every 68 children are diagnosed with Autism. Many of these kids will rely on their parents to some degree, depending on severity, all their lives, with estimated costs between 5 to 7 million dollars in services and care over their lifetime. Many of the services those living with Autism require are not covered by insurance. It is an expensive and difficult lifelong diagnosis to navigate.
Authors Ginger Scott and Kennedy Ryan started LIFT 4 Autism a few years ago as a charitable initiative rallying the romance reading community in April, which is Autism Awareness/Acceptance month. All proceeds go to this year’s charitable partner Kulture City, who is doing amazing things for Autism families. Discover more about them at kulturecity.org. Specifically, LIFT will benefit Kulture City’s lifeBOKS program, which provides families with free kits to curtail wandering, a common and potentially life threatening challenge. Proceeds will also benefit Kulture City’s tablet program, which provides iPads to improve communication for non and limited verbal children on the spectrum to families who cannot afford them.

News:Paperback of In Her Eyes

I’m working on edits for the release of In Her Eyes in paperback. I’m aiming to hit publish by the end of the month. At the moment I have two chapters of edits left but am in need of  a Beta reader for input on the flow of the story. There’s a spot that has me stuck and unsatisfied with the scene and dialogue. It’s been revamped form the original in order to be more YA friendly but changing others scenes has left this scene feeling off somehow. Kyler was the original “villain” of sorts,the one who scared Ari with his overpowering Alpha male attitude. But when Ari’s backstory came about her stepbrother, Andre became the main villain who has made Ari into the scared yet independence seeking girl she is today. However,after a few friends read it and suggested toning down Kyler’s strong personalty,so we wouldn’t give younger girls the notion that being treated in such a way was healthy. It was toeing the line between acceptable and aggressive behavior,closer to the line of verbal/mental abuse for comfort.So now I have Ari running scared from both boys and fearing their wrath for doing so but her fear of Kyler is irrational because he hasn’t shown her a reason to fear him yet in her head every guy is to be feared.So,I’m warring with leaving the scene as is and leaving the reader to realize her reaction is irrational on purpose,it’s part of her brokenness from what Andre put her through that leaves her paranoid or I can try tone down her fear of Kyler and just have her afraid of him being upset,hurt and not wanting her because she didn’t trust him.

So yeah that’s where I’m at tonight.And I don’t thing I’m gonna get pass this crossroad tonight,or should I say more like an impasse.C’est la via!Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000026_00006]

In Her Eyes: A Rougorou Chronicles Novella (The Rougarou Chronicles)

I once heard a few tales trickled down the bayou from New Orleans that a witch can turn herself into one or curse someone into becoming something of the Lycan nature. Growing up in such a unique culture filled with a variety of folklore and legends, you tend to pass them off as just that, tales. People see and hear strange things so they make up tales to explain it or they make it up for the fun of scaring others with their tale weaving skills or to keep little kids in line. I admit they are pretty cool to hear and study but do I believe in any of them, haha yeah right! I…
