  • WELCOME!

    I'm Georgia, some people call me Gypsy. I'm an author, a photographer, a mama, a lover, and a dreamer. This site is a work in progress. Feel free to look around :) If you have questions feel free to contact me via my contact page. <3

And then it was July…

I woke up today and realized it was already July 6th. How did that even happen? June was so hectic that it just snuck up on me. We moved. In June. In Arizona. This is not something I recommend. 110 degrees is not something that needs to be experienced while schlepping boxes around. It should be experienced poolside, with a frozen beverage in one hand and a good book in the other. But we are done (except the unpacking part…).

Something awesome happened in June too, I received my paperback proof of Rain Check and it is GORGEOUS!

They are now available for purchase and I will have a form in the next couple of days for people who would like a signed copy. I can’t actually believe I will be signing copies of my own book. This is beautiful and bizarre to me.

 

 

I need my Focus Blend from doTERRA (InTune) while I write ūüėÄ

I’ve also started writing a new book. It will be a companion to Rain Check and will tell Wren’s story. I’m very excited about this one, I can’t wait to share more. I’ll be back soon with some info about the signed copies and an upcoming contest I will be running. <3

Rain Check is OUT!

It has been a whirlwind year! ¬†Unfortunately, my website was experiencing technical difficulties¬†for much of the first half of the year and I was unable to share all the good news here. ¬†After a great deal of frustration and tears I ended up basically just building my site from the bottom up, sadly it appears I have lost the last several years of blog posts… ¬†Hopefully we can figure out a way to restore them, I have all the entries but they have to be completely rebuilt and have the images and links and everything added again, I am not sure when I will have time for that. ¬†Maybe it’s just the Universe telling me it’s time for something shiny and new! ¬†And I have something shiny and new ūüôā

On May 28th my debut novel, Rain Check, was released into the world.

For Avery Montgomery, the devastation of losing her parents in a tragic accident has left her completely shattered. As she begins to pick up the pieces of her once perfect life, she uncovers a secret that will forever change her‚ÄĒshe‚Äôs adopted!¬†

In a search for answers, Avery ventures to Portland where she rents a room from Jonah, a quirky artist who quickly becomes her best friend. His house puts her in close proximity to the metaphysical shop run by her birth mother, the free-spirited Marianna Hutchins. Avery enters The Crystal Moon fully intending to confront Marianna, but instead she chickens out and inquires about a job. She’s hired; yet remains leery about confessing her secret.¬†

As Avery settles into town, she has an embarrassing encounter with Gabe, the incredibly attractive man who works a few doors down. Despite the awkward introduction, there is undeniable chemistry, but after a recent heartbreak all he’s looking for is friendship. 

Everyone deserves a second chance. Will Avery get hers with a new family? Will Gabe allow himself a second chance at love? Will they embrace their new relationships, or will they simply decide to take a rain check?

That is my cover. ¬†Isn’t it gorgeous! ¬†A local photographer, Brad Olson¬†did a shoot for my cover, and the talented Laura from Book Fabulous Designs designed my cover. ¬† I love it. ¬†It totally conveys the feeling of the book. ¬†Lighthearted and fun with a bit of romance for good measure.

I will be back soon to talk some more about my writing journey and what other things have been happening around here, there is so much to share!  <3
