De-Termination (Quarter Life 2) #amwriting #backlist #newrelease #comingsoon

SO! I realized this morning that I had announced over on my Facebook but I forgot to announce here. Ooops! De-Termination (Quarter life 2) will release on December 1st! This is huge, you guys. Seriously. This book was originally supposed to release in 2016, but life got in my way, and instead of writing it, … Continue reading De-Termination (Quarter Life 2) #amwriting #backlist #newrelease #comingsoon

Another round of #WIPpetWednesday #amwriting #thriller

I can't think of the word thriller without Michael Jackson's voice running through my head! Yesterday during therapy, my spouse mentioned that I had written a scary weird ass novel to our therapist. She was all "What!?" I was all, "I wrote a thriller." Cue Michael Jackson. Anyway! I am here to share another excerpt … Continue reading Another round of #WIPpetWednesday #amwriting #thriller

Religion in lesfic #brokentaboos #amwriting #shortstory

I write lesfic, and I write religion, and the two do not often mix. There are some places that this works, but most likely, whatever I write with a women loving women bent and religion is not going to take off. I know this, but still I write it. Why? Because lesbians are Christians and … Continue reading Religion in lesfic #brokentaboos #amwriting #shortstory

Partners in Fighting Crime #WIPpetWednesday #Snippet #WIP #Excerpt

I've been working on this novel for a week or so now. I thought it was crime/mystery at first. I realized the other day, it most definitely is not. It is a psychological thriller through and through. I even looked up a definition of it and sent it to my spouse going this, this, this, … Continue reading Partners in Fighting Crime #WIPpetWednesday #Snippet #WIP #Excerpt

I am Infertile #infertility #pregnancyloss #trauma #birthtrauma

There's a lot weighing on my mind right now, so forgive me if this is jumbled. August is a particularly rough month in our house, and the closer we get to the end of the month, the worse it is. It goes all the way back to 2017, when I became pregnant in late February … Continue reading I am Infertile #infertility #pregnancyloss #trauma #birthtrauma

Let’s talk about outlining #amwriting #outlining #plottervpantser

Let's talk about outlining for a minute or two. I have been seeing on Facebook a lot of conversation about having inspiration and being able to find inspiration and how some people just don't get the juices to write very often. I'm a firm believer that thinking like that is putting limits on yourself. Whether … Continue reading Let’s talk about outlining #amwriting #outlining #plottervpantser

A bittersweet turn #WIPpetWednesday #WIP #AmWriting

We're back to it! This may be the fastest I have ever written, but De-Termination is rapidly coming to an end for me. I have three chapters left to write today and the novel is done. I'm already at 101,000 words, which I've written in less than three weeks. But alas, today is WIPpet Wednesday, … Continue reading A bittersweet turn #WIPpetWednesday #WIP #AmWriting

There’s Something Peculiar About #Trauma

I'm currently writing a novel that has a lot of trauma for one of my main characters happening within it, not only that, but it is very clear she has experienced similar trauma before. There's something peculiar about trauma for sure. Trauma changes us. It changes the way we think and the way we behave. … Continue reading There’s Something Peculiar About #Trauma

A Mission and a Risk #WIPpetWednesday

And here we are at ANOTHER WIPpet Wednesday. So excited to be here. =P I'm sharing from a book titled De-Termination, which is the second Quarter Life book. I published Unbound in 2015! That seems like so flipping long ago, it's hard to imagine. I didn't realize it had been that long. This book has … Continue reading A Mission and a Risk #WIPpetWednesday

A small excerpt for a #WIPpetWednesday

I asked on Facebook this week if anyone was even participating in WIPpet anymore. I have no idea. Those who I knew who were doing it, aren't anymore. But I miss it so much. I thought I'd share a little from what I have been writing this whole month. This is from Learning Love which … Continue reading A small excerpt for a #WIPpetWednesday

Writing has never felt so good! #ROW80 #amwriting #ROW80Update

My goodness I've actually written! It feels so good, you have no idea. Monday I spent a lot of Spider-Man's nap time writing, and as soon as my spouse got home from work, I pounded on the keys as long as I could. That was at least until my wrist started hurting. Gotta start exercising … Continue reading Writing has never felt so good! #ROW80 #amwriting #ROW80Update
