S'mores Frappuccino DIY

Tonight I made my first attempt at crafting my own version of the S'mores Frappuccino from Starbucks.
I love the S'mores Frappuccino. In the last week, I might've had like 3 of them. Maybe more than that. But the problem is that they're so expensive when you get them at Starbucks. A small cost me about $5 and was gone in minutes.
So what does someone do when they want something but they can't afford to keep buying it? We make it ourselves!
The recipe came from the following video, and I have to say, it tastes just like the one from Starbucks. Though personally, I think I could've let mine freeze a little longer and maybe added more milk. But hey, that's what trial and error are for!


Here's my first attempt!

Guardian Angels Facebook Party

So Guardian Angels, second book in the Lost Angels series, is coming out at the end of this month. On the 28th, in fact! So in celebration of that, I'm doing a Facebook Release Party!

The concept is a simple one: Attend the party from any phone, computer, tablet--anything you've got Facebook on--and come together with other people who enjoy the series. There will be a Q and A portion, trivia games (answer enough questions correctly and at the end of the night you have a chance at winning a free e-copy of Guardian Angels!), a cover reveal, and so much more party fun!

I'm also going to offer people a chance to join an email list of mine. This means that you will receive updates on both the Lost Angels series and any of my other upcoming works.

Below is the link to the party, and everyone is invited! I hope to see you all there!

The Importance of Relaxing

I'm a workaholic.

I'm just going to get that out of the way right now. I work as much as I can, and when I'm not working I'm either thinking about working or I'm feeling bad for not working. To me, every minute not working is a minute thats not being used productively. I've gotten better about it recently, but I still feel twinges of unease whenever I'm just laying around watching television instead of sitting in front of the computer working on a book.

Danny and my friends are always telling me it's okay to relax, especially when I'm not feeling well, and they're right. Forcing myself to work nonstop often ends up with me writing something subpar that I'm just going to have to change later anyway.

For all the other people out there like me, who are obsessed with making every minute count towards your work, it really is okay to take a few days to relax and do other things. When you do go back to your work you're probably going to be more…
