New Year and so much to share.

on January 15, 2018

Happy New Year Everyone!

I am so happy I made it through the holidays, and things are finally settling down.

Don’t get me wrong. I love all the chaos and fun of Christmas and New Year. What I don’t care for is the flu.

As with most of the country, the epidemic of the flu hit my house like the plague, leaving me to deal with a miserable husband and kids for over ten days.

Let’s say I drank a lot of wine to cope.

Being homebound has given me plenty of time to write.

With that said, there is some exciting news to share.

I have a tentative release schedule for 2018/2019. It is a bit ambitious, but hey, why not give it a shot. Now, remember all dates and book names are subject to change.

Politics of Love Series:

Celebrity (May 2018)

Senator (September 2018)

Candidate (Feb 2019)

Club Chaos Series: (Working on the titles, I’ll keep everyone updated)

Book 1 (July 2018)

Book 2 (November 2018)

Book 3 (January 2019)

Politics of Love Series follows the love lives of judges, politicians, and lawyers as they navigate opposing parties, political aspirations, celebrity court cases, and cultural differences.

Club Chaos series follows three best friends, fifteen years after they first met in college, as they journey on a path to rediscover the women they lost when careers, obligations, and families altered their dreams.

These two series are my first ventures into self-publishing. If anyone is interested in possibly receiving an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) of one of the books, join my street team, Sienna’s Sirens.

I am also working on a traditionally published series called, Family Scandals. This Series is about four overachieving Indian American siblings, who are trying to balance living in two cultures while carving out a place for themselves in both. The release dates on this haven’t been set yet.

The last thing, I wanted to share with you is that this May, I’ll be attending the Romantic Times Booklover’s Convention in Reno this year. If anyone is out that way, come find me.

This year is going to be busy but so exciting.

As always, I’d love to hear from you. Contact me anytime.

Cheers,

Sienna Snow

Happy Holidays from Sienna Snow

on December 20, 2017

Merry Christmas Everyone,

I hope this post finds you in good spirits and not in the middle of a crazy last-minute shopping excursion for the gifts you forgot to purchase. I wouldn’t know anything about that 😊.

     

The holiday season makes me think about all the things I experienced over the year, from the release of two books, a starred review from Library Journal and my first ever book signing to traveling to Costa Rica, Spain, France, and Italy.

With the good, there were a few low points, a double ruptured tendon, and an almost full foot reconstruction.

But overall, I can say this has been a most amazing year, and I am so blessed to write and share it with you.

In the coming year, get ready for many new things to come your way. I’m working on three brand new series (Politics of Love, Family Scandals, and Club Chaos).

Club Chaos – Spring 2018 – What happens when life takes over, and you forget who you were in the process? This series follows three best friends, fifteen years after they first met in college, as they journey on a path to rediscover the women they lost when careers, obligations, and families altered their dreams.

Politics of Love Series – Mid-2018 – this series follows the love lives of judges, politicians, and lawyers as they navigate opposing parties, political aspirations, celebrity court cases, and cultural differences.

Family Scandals – Mid to late 2018 – This Series is about four overachieving Indian American siblings, who are trying to balance living in two cultures while carving out a place for themselves in both.

Can you tell I’m writing like a machine? I am so excited for you to meet my new cast of characters.

In closing, I want to wish all of you a blessed Holiday season. May happiness and joy fill all of your lives.

Merry Christmas and see you in the New Year,

Sienna

 

 

 

Europe, a cast, and a scooter

on November 15, 2017

Hello Everyone!

Hope fall is treated each of you well. This time of year is nonstop for me, as I’m sure, it is the same for many of you. When I am running around like crazy, I like to think about all the things I’ve done over the past year. One of them is my fabulous adventure in Europe this past August.

I’m a planner, and I’d planned this vacation over eighteen months before the trip. So needless to say, nothing was going to stop me from enjoying my vacation. This included a double ruptured tendon and collapsed arch.

Much to my doctor’s chagrin, I’d decided to delay surgery until after I returned from my Europe. The compromise we came up with was that I’d have to wear an air cast and use a knee scooter whenever I could.

I know many of you are thinking, how does one walk the cobblestone streets around the ancient cities of Europe in a cast?  Well let me tell you, it wasn’t easy but I did it.

I’m one of those annoying glass is half full kind of gals, and so nothing was going to cramp my style.

My adventure started with a stiff drink at the airport, in the guise of coffee.

This kept me going for the 16-hour journey to get from Houston, Texas to Barcelona, Spain with a three-hour delay in Washington, D.C. between flights. Let me state for the record, anyone who says they travel all the time and never have issues is a liar! Now that I’ve gotten that off my chest, back to our regularly scheduled programming. 😊

The moment we landed, I was ready to roll. I wasn’t sure if it was delirium from sleep deprivation, but I was super hyper.

For the next three days, I ran my family ragged, scooting all over Barcelona, from mountaintops of Montserrat to the artsy Casa Battlo. Now I’m not going to say it is easy, but Barcelona is relatively filled with smooth streets. The areas where it was too bouncy for my scooter, I hobbled on with my boot.

At the end of each day, I enjoyed a cocktail or two. In the case below, four!

After my fun-filled days in Spain, we headed to Cannes, France, and Monaco.  These are two places where being over the top is the norm, and that’s an understatement. I’ve never seen so many luxury stores, sports cars, and yachts. If you bank, at least, fifty million a year, I highly recommend these places as the locations your next summer homes. For the rest of us, it’s always fun to see how ridiculously crazy people are about their high-end goods.

Once we had our fill of lifestyles of the rich and famous, we made our way to Italy. This is one of the countries, I’ve dreamed of visiting since childhood. The first city we spend time and my favorite place in all of Italy was Florence. Everywhere we went there are leather goods and cafes, beautiful architecture and churches. I ate more during my two days in Florence than I did the entire other parts of the vacation. In addition to stuffing my face, I was fortunate to be able to spend an incredible time in the Uffizi Gallery and the Galleria dell’Accademiasee, where I saw the first ever cover model, David! Now I understand why this statue has inspired so many pieces of writing and art.

The last city on my Mediterranean adventure was Rome. This is the place where the gladiators fought and where the Christian church built its base to spread across the modern world. My faith is very important to me, and I can truly say it was a blessing to visit the Vatican. There is nothing I can say to describe the feeling of being in this ancient community other than breathtaking.

Now close your eyes and imagine a certain someone, gritting her teeth, bouncing along thousand-year-old stones of various shapes and sizes, and praying she doesn’t go airborne at any minute. If you haven’t guessed, that was me. Cobblestones were not my favorite part of this city. However, I can say I visited Rome and went to the top of the Colosseum!

Ending my journey was bittersweet. I was ready to come home for a little normalcy but was sad to leave the culture, food, and more than anything, the people I’d met.

If you ever find yourself looking for a place to visit, I cannot highly recommend the countries which line the Mediterranean enough. Any adventure there will leave you with beautiful memories and lifelong friends.

Until next month,

Sienna
