A lot has happened this past year, but it can be summed up in five words: I went back to work.

In January of this year, I started a full-time position in a call center. The work itself isn’t too bad, I’m good at it at least which makes me less likely to be screamed at. And yes, I have gotten many calls with screamers. Why grown adults think screaming like a toddler will magically allow me to fix their problem instantaneously is beyond me.


Besides the screamers, and the hour long commute in Atlanta traffic, the worst part is actually…working. I was a stay at home mom for 16 years. And while that was work, too, my schedule was my own. My job even tells me when I’m allowed use the bathroom. It’s like being in kindergarten again, but without the nap time.

In addition to working, I’m still in college. Juggling the two, plus family has been….challenging. Needless to say, not much writing has gotten done. I’m starting to feel I have gotten a handle on it all again and while I haven’t actually written much, I never stopped thinking about it. Lately I’ve even been busting out some of my writing theory books and brushing up the outline for Full Moon Mix-Up. Hopefully, I can get it finished and out for consumption soon.

Official Launch Page:



Alexandria Publishing Group is a writers’ collective made up of individual authors with proven talent. Each has shown dedication and skill in creating and producing amazing books that compel and create a strong, solid reading platform.  Quality is a key and critical factor in inclusion on the group’s’ roster, alongside writers with a true passion for writing.

“I’ve always written,” says Kai, “and it really appeals to me to work with other indie authors and providers to pool our resources. Working as an editor with the group too, really means I can be sure that I’m investing in like-minded individuals and have the support I need for my own books. And while I can offer a lot as a writer, I’m also keen to help indies reach a broader audience.”

OSTFlower2largeWhat a wonderful feeling! 12-12-12 I hit the publish button on Amazon, then I jumped up and started cleaning everything I could find. Nerves.

An hour later, my book was no longer In Review status but back in Draft. I waited a whole 10 minutes for an explanation from Amazon before trying to publish again. Yeah, I was impatient.

This happened twice more. I tried tweaking little things to see if it was a formatting error or I missed a check box. Finally, I went to bed hoping that by morning Amazon would have sent me an email. They did. In all the excitement I somehow neglected to put myself down as the author. How embarrassing.

My cheeks bright red, I fixed the error and published once more. Within an hour One Small Touch was available for purchase! I shouted my happiness in Facebook-land and celebrated with my family. I thought about writing a blog post but couldn’t settle down long enough to get the words down. I should have forced myself, by Friday evening I was horribly sick.

My husband is a remote technician and he brought back some sort of gnarly-oak funk from one of his facilities. It laid out the entire family for well over a week. We’re just now feeling mostly normal. The kids are still coughing but the awful energy drain, vomiting and fevers have abated. Yeah, it was a combination flu/bronchitis thing. Oddest mix of illness I’ve ever encountered.

Anyway, that’s why I haven’t been able to update my website with a post about One Small Touch. It’s not that I didn’t love everyone. It’s because I literally couldn’t get out of bed for more than a moment of two for far too long.

Oh! The link!

One Small Touch available on Amazon today (and tomorrow and the next day and the next!)

Cover concept

I was having a hard time writing the other day so I fired up Photoshop and put together a cover for my werewolf story. The awesomely talented Troy Bedingfield came up with the concept (and I’m sure once I’m ready for publication he’ll refine it greatly) but I wanted to see what I could do. It’s all about stretching your comfort zones sometimes. 🙂
