Everything You Need to Know About Airtime and Alibis

The release of my next book, Airtime and Alibis, is imminent and today I want to take some time to provide some answers on all the questions everyone has involving the book and my writing lately. So let’s talk about everything you need to know about Airtime and Alibis. 

Everything You Need to Know About Airtime and Alibis

1. When is the book coming out?

The book will be coming out tomorrow, March 26th.

2. Where can I read the book?

The book will be available on Amazon’s kindle platform. Once all three stories in the series are out, they’ll be available on other platforms like Kobo or Nook.

3. Will I be able to purchase a paperback of the book?

As this is a short story, I’ll be releasing two sequels back to back this year. Once all three are available for purchase, I’ll do a 3-in-1 for the paperback. If you’re interested in a paperback copy, sign up for my newsletter so you know when they’ll be available.

4. How many books will be in the series?

I’ll be releasing three short stories in a row before I go back to my other series, The Cassie Morgan Series. But because the books in this series stand on their own a little more than the other series, there is always the option I’ll come back and write some more. I expect there may be another set of three short stories in mid-late 2020. So for now there will be three.

6. What is this book even about?

Yes, someone asked me this. The short? It’s a story about a journalist who ends up working with a local cop to find a missing woman in a case that gains national attention. To read more about the book, click here.

7. Will I like your book?

Yes, this is a question people ask, too. The short? I can’t tell you. But if you love cozy mysteries with a little bit of romance (or even just one of those things), you might like this book series.

8. Where can I learn more?

Obviously, this website will have lots of information about the book and its release, however, if you want to get new info first, you’ll want to sign up down below for the newsletter!

Cover Reveal: Airtime and Alibis

The time is here and I’ve got some big news! After months and months of editing and finalizing a book, the book is done and it’s coming very soon. Today, I’m excited to share the cover for the book.


Emily Burnet has covered some high-profile stories in her time as a reporter, but she’s never come across a story this personal. It’s been six years since Emily last saw Claire Scott in college, but now Claire has vanished in Emily’s hometown, just days before the launch of her national talk show.

Curiosity has carried Emily in her career so far, but it might be too much when Emily finds herself bargaining with Detective Austin Cooper, the lead investigator on Claire’s case. She offers him information and insight on Claire, in exchange for first dibs on new developments in the case (and maybe some unanticipated sparks.)

As Emily tries to tie the woman she knew to the woman who disappeared, she realizes the bubbly journalist everyone loved was hiding a dark private life. Curiosity has helped Emily in the past, but this time it might make her the next big headline instead.

For the Love of Words: January Writing Recap

Every month in 2019, I want to do a recap of my writing – to be accountable to myself and let others know what my writing is really looking like these days. For the Love of Words used to cover both reading and writing, but starting this month, reading will get its own recap. So today, to mark the start of a new month, let’s talk about January.

For the Love of Words - January 2019

As I mentioned last week, January was a busy month in my life. Big changes in my day job, a move (and all the changes that go with that) and finally, last weekend, I felt like it was time to start editing.

I started last weekend and the first section felt really solid, I felt proud of what I had. Then I went to the second part and began cutting through the unnecessary parts, as this is supposed to be a short story. As I plan to make this a series of short stories, I’ve had to lean back on some of the character development that I want to save for future books.

Either way, after almost two months of a break, I’m feeling more confident about my writing. The first section feels tight and clean, but still sets up the story nicely. I love that this series is in Austin, where I live.

While I still don’t know what 2019 will hold, I’m thinking that if the rest of this book goes as well in editing as the first 10,000 words went, this will be out in the first quarter. After two and a half years without a release, it feels good to say that out loud – or at least out to the internet.

For once, I feel like that might actually happen and it’s super cool to feel confident in my writing.

For the Love of Books: January Reading Recap

For the Love of Words is a series where I recap my monthly reading and writing habits. In 2019, I’m spinning the reading section off into its own series: For the Love of Books. This post does contain affiliate links, which help support the indie author way.

When I first decided to spin off my monthly reading recap into its own thing, I was doing five or six books a month. This month, January I finished one book and I read half of it last night.

For the Love of Books: January 2019

Between changes at my job and changes in my life (I moved!) I spent most of the month crawling into bed and turning the lights out right away. I think between that and the fact that I was reading so much in December and November to finish the In Death series, I was a little burned out on reading and needed to give myself time to recover.

Either way, I read one book this month (well, I started a new one this morning so, really 1.1 books).

Books I Read in January

For Better and Worse – This book tells the story of two attorneys, married, who find out something terrible has happened to their son. Natalie, the wife, decides that the only way to get justice is to do it herself instead of waiting. She ends up getting her husband, Will, involved and the two have to make sure their secrets and crimes don’t come out.

I thought the premise of this book was pretty amazing, but about two-thirds of the way in, it started to fall apart for me. The ending felt incredibly rushed, like she was just meeting a word quota and it felt anti-climatic. I can definitely think of how this could have played out better at the end, but overall it was a pretty decent book.

This book was a Book of the Month pick.

So what’s on the slate for February?

Sneak Peek: Airtime and Alibis

2019 is the year where I’m launching a new series – The Emily Burnet Series. While the series is still a mystery series with a case to solve, instead of the main character being a member of law enforcement, she’s a journalist on TV.

Something that has been so much fun for me is to dabble in writing news reports and press releases as a part of this story. It’s a different way to give relevant information that the reader needs to know and can break up the story. With these short stories, I’ve broken them up into days instead of chapters and these little releases break the story up. So today, I’m excited to share the first one with y’all.



Austin, TX (March 5, 2018) –The William Beaumont Agency’s talent, Claire Scott, will launch her own talk show, “Claire” on NBC on March 5th, 2018 at South by Southwest in Austin, Texas.
