April Update

Hello spring and hello fans!

I’m sorry I’ve been off the grid for a while; life is crazy and I was treading water. I’m back, my world is organized once again, and I’m writing.

April is Camp Nano or Camp Nanowrimo (a.k.a. Camp National Novel Writing Month) My goal this month is 50,000 words. I plan to write 25,000 in 7 Deadly Sins: Lust and 25,000 in 7 Deadly Sins: Sloth by April 30th. As of today, I’m on target to reach my goal. I’m also editing 7 Deadly Sins: Greed. The stress and craziness of Covid-19 has left me unable to focus on one book at a time from start to finish. Follow my progress on all three of these books on my social media platforms.

Contests: May 2021 will mark many special anniversaries for my writing and me. What does that mean? It means I will have several promotions and giveaways for you the readers. I’m currently working on posting these to social media. Keep an eye out for the giveaway announcements and spread the word.

Planning a vacation or a day trip? Why not visit one of these book/author events in a city near you? Many book events feature authors from all genres. These events are a great way to meet authors, get autographs, discover new books to read, and walk away with free stuff. Most communities schedule outings in the area that coincide with the book events. I’m currently attending events in Lawrence KS, Deadwood SD, Des Moines IA, Cedar Falls IA, Minneapolis MN in 2021. For 2022 and 2023 I’ll be attending events in Kansas City MO and St. Louis MO. Check out this link for up-to-date information on each of the events I will be attending.

Haley Rhoades’ writing is another bucket-list item coming to fruition, just like meeting Stephen Tyler, Ozzie Smith and skydiving. As she continues to write romance and young adult books, she plans to complete her remaining bucket-list items, including ghost-hunting, storm-chasing, and bungee jumping. She is a Netflix-binging, Converse-wearing, avidly-reading, traveling geek.
A team player, Haley thrived as her spouse’s career moved the family of four 10 times to four states. One move occurred eleven days after my C-section. Now with two adult sons, Haley copes with her newly emptied nest by writing and spoiling Nala, our precious Pomsky. A fly on the wall might laugh as she talks aloud to her fur-baby all day long.
Haley’s under five-foot, fun-size stature houses a full-size attitude. Her uber-competitiveness in all things entertains, frustrates, and challenges family and friends. Not one to shy away from a dare, she faces the consequences of a lost bet no matter the humiliation. Her fierce loyalty extends from family, to friends, to sports teams.
Haley’s guilty pleasures are Lifetime and Hallmark movies. Her other loves include all things peanut butter, Kansas City Chiefs, St.Louis Cardinals, Star Wars, mathematics, and travel. Past day jobs vary tremendously from an elementary special-education para-professional, to a YMCA sports director, to a retail store accounting coordinator, and finally a high school mathematics teacher.
Haley resides with her husband and fur-baby in a south Des Moines suburb. This Missouri-born girl enjoys the diversity the Midwest offers.
