Bestsellers and Babies!

Wow, so a LOT has happened since my last post! All four of the Mayhem Series books hit the bestseller list in Germany (AAAAHHHHH!!!! I love you, German readers!!!!), and I had a baby! lol. I've been ridiculously busy care of my now-four-month-old and my almost-two-and-a-half-year-old, which is why I haven't posted here much. The sleep deprivation is real, folks. The sleep deprivation is REAL.

All of my free time (what little I now have) goes toward WRITING! I'm currently working on a standalone, dual-perspective, second-chance romance that I know you're going to love, and my goal is to publish it in 2018! I started writing this book shortly after I wrote Mayhem, before I ever knew that book was going to be published, so it's very much in the same vein. Think a hot, bad boy hero who could totally hang with the guys from The Last Ones to Know. ;)

If you want to follow me where I tend to post more updates, please friend me on Facebook and join my reader group! I promise I won't go eight months there between posts! ...though you will have to deal with lots of cute pictures of my kids. :)

ROCK MY HEART (Mayhem) -- International Bestseller!!!



Holy. Crap.

The German version of MAYHEM, ROCK MY HEART, is officially killing it over in Germany! Just look at this!

Yeah. That's me. Just chilling a few spots under E L James and JoJo Moyes like we're BFFs.

I bawled, people. Like a baby. I got the news, and I completely lost it. I'd been getting a lot of love from my German readers over the past few weeks. I mean, just check out these cool Instagram pics they posted! (And there are SO many more, and they're ALL gorgeous! I swear I go all heart-eyes every time someone tags me in one...)

BUT A FREAKING BESTSELLER?!?! Not even going to lie -- I'm still in utter awe of it. You better believe that "international bestseller" title is going on all of my book covers from now on! And I rewrote my bio! And I feel like a freaking ROCK STAR!

Thank you SO much to all of the amazing German readers and bloggers who made this happen! And to my awesome German editor, Anna-Lisa Hollerbach, and my amazing, amazing German publisher, Blanvalet, who pimped this series hard and made awesome swag to go with it and everything! <3

When I first wrote Mayhem (ROCK MY HEART), my biggest dream was that maybe I'd get a publisher and maaaybe some people in the US would read it. Readers in Germany? Not in my wildest dreams. A bestseller in Germany? WHAT IS THIS LIFE!

My readers really are the stuff dreams are made of. And they've made MY biggest dreams come true. So thank you, thank you, thank you. I hope you love the other books in the series just as much. :)

It’s finally here! HAVOC went live today!!!! Mike Madden’s story is here!

Mayhem Series fans have been waiting almost two years for the drummer of The Last Ones to Know to get his happily ever after, and he finally gets it with Hailey Harper—the little cousin of his bat-shit crazy ex-girlfriend.

Here are some things I think are especially cool about this story:

  • It’s the longest of all of the Mayhem Series books.
  • It has a villain.
  • It has the longest sex scene.
  • There’s romantic competition—for the hero’s heart.
  • It has dirty talk. 
  • It has special appearances from ALL of the characters you’ve grown to love throughout the series!

Just check out this synopsis!!

When Hailey Harper left her family farm to enroll in veterinary school, she had a plan: keep her head down, ace her classes, and most importantly... don’t upset the uncle paying her tuition. Translation? Don’t piss off his dramatic, self-absorbed daughter, Danica, even if she’s a nightmare to live with.

Falling in love with her cousin’s rock star ex-boyfriend was definitely
not part of the plan.

As the drummer of a now-famous rock band, Mike Madden could have any girl he wants. He’s sweet, funny, romantic, talented—and the only guy that’s ever made Hailey’s heart do cartwheels in her chest. The more she gets to know him, the harder she falls, but Hailey knows they can never be more than friends… because Danica wants him back, and she’ll fight dirty to win.

Mike is falling for Hailey too, but Danica’s threats and his rock star life—music video shoots, international tours, obsessed fans—could tear them apart before they’ve even begun. Hailey isn’t sure she’s the one for him, but Mike’s waited years for a girl like her… and he’ll do anything to prove it.

I’m going to be celebrating this day with TONS of giveaways and special features in my reader group on Facebook, so join us before you miss anything!

I’ll also be doing a live video in there today around 8:30PM EST, so stop by and say hi! Keep an eye out for fun posts throughout the day—when you’re not busy devouring Mike’s story, of course—and let me know what you think of HAVOC once you’re finished!! Most of my advance readers said Mike became their absolute favorite of all the Mayhem Series boys.... I can’t wait to hear if you’ve switched to #TEAMMIKEMADDEN too! <3

BREAKING: The Mayhem Series Gets A T-Shirt!!!

UPDATE: This Teespring campaign has been RELAUNCHED until 3/10/17:

THE MAYHEM SERIES HAS AN OFFICIAL T-SHIRT!!! I repeat, the Mayhem Series has an OFFICIAL freaking T-shirt, and you can order yours today!

Show your love for your favorite fictional rock band, The Last Ones to Know! Rock the same shirt that you could have bought at one of their sold-out shows at Mayhem, after singing along with Adam Everest and Shawn Scarlett from the front row of the crowd!

Earlier this month, I held a design contest in my Facebook reader group, Jamie's Rock Stars, and a few readers submitted some seriously kickass designs. This one was designed by Summer Webb of Butter My Books. Group members voted it their favorite, and I absolutely love it! The front has some very cool detail, and the tour dates on the back are actually the e-book and print release dates of the series! With the final book, HAVOC, just around the corner, I can't wait to wear this design and feel like I'm right back in the series. :)

There are LOTS of different shirt styles available on the Teespring page, so check it out and place your order while you still can! This sale campaign will end in just two weeks, on Feb 9.

MAYHEM #4 (Mike's Book) -- Coming Early 2017!!!

OMGOMGOMFGOMGOMG YOU GUYS!!!! This announcement just went live on Publisher's Marketplace:


I'm so excited to FINALLY share that I will be releasing this book early next year, and that the heroine of Mike's story will be the sweet, pocket-sized gamer chick you met in CHAOS, HAILEY! She's so perfect for Mike, and eventually he is going to be able to look past his heartless ex, Hailey's cousin, to see that.

Mike Madden has been a reader favorite ever since the release of the very first book in the series, MAYHEM, and it's not hard to see why. He's sweet. He's genuine. He's not a big talker unless there's something that needs said. He was the first guy to become a true friend to Rowan in MAYHEM. He was the friend who offered Kit heartfelt advice in CHAOS. He was the guy who turned down a room full of half-naked groupies, explaining, "Look, when I meet my wife, I don't want to have to explain to her why I slept with a hundred people before I met her, okay?"


In truth, Mike was the best boyfriend material even from the very beginning of this series. He's never been a player like Adam or Joel or even Shawn. He's never been one to hook up with the groupies constantly throwing themselves at the band. He's always been the most ready for love, and I am so beyond thrilled to finally give him the girl he's been waiting for. One who deserves him. <3

I know you guys are going to love Hailey and this story. While you're waiting for that release date to get closer, here are some ways you can stay up to date:
