Happy Dance Time!

Why am I celebrating today? Because I’ve just finished – and I mean FINISHED – the first two books in the Seaside Valleria series, Rush and Ripple! Whoo hoo! The pre-orders aren’t up yet, but they should be in the next several days. I’ll do a post when they are. So when are they releasing?

Nothing is Impossible

Nothing is Impossible

#MondayMotivation… I’m pushing hard to finish up Seaside Valleria 3 today. I pulled a late-nighter yesterday, and might need to do one today as well. So many words I want to write and I just can’t get them on the page fast enough (#writerproblems). Hope everyone has an amazing Monday! ~xoxo Marianne This is Post
