Hockey Withdraws! What's a girl to do?

I am missing hockey bad! I know that October is right around the corner but it's still so far away.

So I've been reading, and doing a lot of writing!

Yep, that's me right there!

So, if you don't know already I have finished and published Always Forever 

If you haven't grabbed your copy, it's only 99 cents!! 

Anyway, I have been writing up a storm, and my next project will be a New Adult Paranormal. 

I know, I know

I'm not a Paranormal author! However, I've received good feedback about this book. 

I'm looking for a late summer/early fall release. 

As always, I will keep you updated!

Teaser Tuesday: Always Forever by Mary Smith

Ah, it's Tuesday again ... which like Monday Part 2 for me ... but whatever!

This post is an update and a teaser! What?! That's like a 2 for 1 deal!


Always Forever is with the formatter and I'm hoping to get it back this week. When I do I will hit publish, grab a bottle of vodka and hide in the corner!

None the less I'm hoping to have it out this week!

Now for the teaser and it's from Colton's point-of-view:

Lucy slammed four stacks of papers in front of me. “The conference room is reserved and you need to go over these now.”
“Lucy, I’m eating breakfast with my brother. This can wait a little bit.” I looked up at my assistant. Her bright blonde hair had purple streaks in it today. Her neon green capped sleeve shirt read ‘I Eat Brains and Pussy’. She sat down between Patrick and me, giving him a loud kiss on the cheek.
“Good morning, Pats.”
“Hello, Lucy.” He smiled at her.
“And Colton.” She crossed her legs that were covered by leather white pants. “Don’t use Pats as an excuse to slack off this morning.”
“You know, I should fire you,” I moaned pushing away my plate and sliding the contracts over to review them.
“I’ve known you since kindergarten, you can’t fire me, I’m like family.” She reached for my plate, pulling it in front of her and eating the contents.
I trust Patrick most in my life, but Lucy was a close second. We went to school together and ran with the same crowd of friends, but it was after high school everything happened, when we became close. Lucy helped me out with Patrick a lot, and when I started working more with Shine, I brought her along. Now, she’s my right hand and does everything for me. She was right. She was family, like our sister.
I began flipping through the pages reading over Twisted Misery’s future. “Did you add that special clause to Ivee’s contract?”
“Yeah.” She took another bite. “But I still find it a little strange.”

I didn’t comment, as I turned the pages. I tuned everything out as I continued through each stack. When I got to Ivee’s I double checked it, because I didn’t need her coming back at me with any smart remarks, and I knew this would work.

Teaser Tuesday: Always Forever by Mary Smith

Today's teaser needs a little back story:

Ivee is the lead guitarist for the band Twisted Misery, and just finished playing at Wills bar. This is her first encounter with Colton Cruise.

If you hadn't added it to your Goodread yet, you can here.

Please remember this is still being edited!


“Ivee?” Nolan’s stern voice shook me out of my day dream.
“Can you be there tomorrow?” He asked.
“Yeah, no problem,” I said nonchalantly, even though my insides were flipping in circles.
Just then a gaggle of girls came around the truck. I knew what was on their minds.
I rolled my eyes at their low cut tank tops, short skirts, and walked away to go back into the bar.
It was almost empty, except for a few bartenders that were cleaning up. I slide behind the counter, grabbing a cold bottle of water. I noticed Wills at the end of the bar, and I stroll over to him. Ever since we’ve played here, he’s been very kind to me. Not in that creepy-perverted-way either.
I slapped a five dollar bill on the counter. “Take this,” I ordered.
Wills chuckled. “You made me a lot of money tonight.” He pushed it back to me. “It’s on me.”
“Thanks,” I said gently, putting the money back into my pocket.
“I want you to meet someone,” Wills informed me as a young guy comes up to the bar, next to him. “Ivee, this is Colton.”
“Hey,” I nodded.
“Ivy, like a plant?” he questioned. The bar lights made his light brown eyes gleam, as he searched me up and down.
“I-V-E-E. I’m not a plant,” I spat back at him.
“I’m simply making an assumption of your name.” He tried to pin a mean look at me through his eyes, but it wasn’t working on me.
“Well, you’re wrong.” I narrowed mine to him.
“Aren’t you just a little southern bell?” Colton’s voice is low and deep.
“Oh please, like I haven’t heard that cheesy pickup line before.” I groaned at his attempt to make fun of my thick Texas accent.
“Ivee,” Wills voice sent me a warning, and he was shaking his head.

“Well, thank you Wills,” I said, ignoring Colton’s eyes and Wills, leaving them both at the bar.
