I spent the last week barely writing and focusing as much as I could on launching my book. The barely writing slowed down my nano progress goals so I didn't hit my goals for NaNoWriMo, which were to write every day for 30 days and to write most of if not all of three novels, … Continue reading Mid-week check in for #row80 and #nanowrimo wrap up

Brandi Carlile Rabbit Hole #ROW80 #NaNoWriMo
So many rabbit holes this week, but the one I'm super excited about is Brandy Carlile music! It's my new favorite station on Pandora to write to. My kids are so tired of be "playing music" on the TV instead of television shows for them. I keep telling them it'll make them smarter, but I … Continue reading Brandi Carlile Rabbit Hole #ROW80 #NaNoWriMo
ROW80 Update #ROW80
Good morning! I've been working hard (kind of). I've actually been resting a lot too. I had surgery last week, and recovery has been slow. Here's my mid-week update on what I've been doing. For marketing, I'm learning about Amazon Ads, I'm looking at blog tours and a release event for De-Termination which is coming … Continue reading ROW80 Update #ROW80
A Lenten Fast #blogging #life #writing #newreleases #editing
Well, it has been a long time since I've been on this blog. I unintentionally gave up blogging for Lent it seems. Go figure. I ran into one of the busiest few months of my life, even busier than wedding planning and moving across country and starting a new job. I'm not sure I thought … Continue reading A Lenten Fast #blogging #life #writing #newreleases #editing
Christmas Eve isn’t as relaxed as it used to be #ROW80 & #WIPpetWednesday
Christmas Eve isn't a break for me like it used to be. I was just telling the SO the other day that it's a bit weird not having a Christmas break from like when I was in school because I don't really know when everyone is done for the semester. Today is one of my … Continue reading Christmas Eve isn’t as relaxed as it used to be #ROW80 & #WIPpetWednesday
Such a travesty … #WIPpetWednesday & #ROW80
So I haven't really written since last Saturday--like at all. I've been busy with an assembly, with church stuffs and with working my regular job, and just with being plain exhausted. I'm hoping to change the outcome of this since I went to be around ten last night but only the rest of today will … Continue reading Such a travesty … #WIPpetWednesday & #ROW80

An update and a hope! #ROW80
Hello all! Here I am on a Sunday morning typing up a post. Usually I do these on Saturday because my Sunday mornings are insane (preacher and all). Anyway, here's my quick and handy update. 1. Fallen from Grace: write 1 chapter a week (moving week excluded) -- I wrote chapter 14 this week, … Continue reading An update and a hope! #ROW80
The Seventh Commandment — WIPpet Wednesday in style
If there's one thing I've learned about this novel series, it's that people really like Peter. Peter is a bit troubled, but he has a great sense of innocence about him! He's seen a lot in his short life, but he's a character. The chapter I've been working on has Peter in it. And I … Continue reading The Seventh Commandment — WIPpet Wednesday in style
Circus Act #WIPpet Wednesday and a #ROW80 update
A ROW80 update first. 1. Fallen from Grace: write 1 chapter a week (moving week excluded) -- I haven't finished the chapter yet, but I am making progress. This novel is weird in that I have some really long chapters and some really short chapters. It was planned that way and was the same way … Continue reading Circus Act #WIPpet Wednesday and a #ROW80 update
Little fishies in the sea, all the wonders there can be #ROW80 update
Well, it's Sunday. That means it's time for a ROW80 update! w00t! I have gotten a lot done this week. A reminder of my goals... 1. Fallen from Grace: write 1 chapter a week (moving week excluded): I'm doing very well on this goal! One Wednesday I had already finished my one chapter. I've since … Continue reading Little fishies in the sea, all the wonders there can be #ROW80 update
#WIPpet and #ROW80 ayup…it’s July 16, 2014
Hey all. Yes, I know I didn't do ROW80 on Sunday. Alls fair, I was in a house with no internet at all, and it would not have been pretty if I'd done the update on my phone. I'll do my ROW80 update first, since it's easy. I've done nothing. All of this.... 1. Fallen … Continue reading #WIPpet and #ROW80 ayup…it’s July 16, 2014
So excited! I just can’t hide it! #WIPpet & #ROW80 update
So I'm writing this post on Monday because I'm so damn excited and I can't wait to share. I actually did some massive writing last night. As in, I wrote about 4,000 words in the span of 5 hours, with an hour break in there to watch the newest episode of Sister Wives (yes, I … Continue reading So excited! I just can’t hide it! #WIPpet & #ROW80 update
Holla! It’s WIPpet Wednesday!
Hey all! It's a crazy busy time of life for me right now. I'll share more next week (hopefully). I'm still not ready to give out that part of the news yet. However, I'm leaving this weekend for a mini-trip that might be a make it or break it trip (again, more later), so that … Continue reading Holla! It’s WIPpet Wednesday!
WIPpet Wednesday May 14, 2014
I was having a really hard time deciding whether or not to post a blurb or an excerpt from a short story I wrote this week. I decided to go with the short story. This story isn't quite a stand-alone. I've had it in my head to write outtakes for For by Grace from Amya's … Continue reading WIPpet Wednesday May 14, 2014
For by Grace COVER REVEAL #authorcorner
Today is the cover reveal for my newest novel For by Grace. This is the start of a new series called Spirit of Grace. I can't believe it's going to be released in one month. And I can't believe how hard it was to wait to reveal this cover to everyone. It should be available … Continue reading For by Grace COVER REVEAL #authorcorner
WIPpet Wednesday!!! March 26, 2014
I'm back!!!!! So sorry I didn't comment on anything the last time. I was overwhelmed and stressed with a lot of things and had to give multiple things up in order to just make it through. Unfortunately, blogging was one of those things and rather abruptly one of them. But I'm back! And I'm going … Continue reading WIPpet Wednesday!!! March 26, 2014
Updates from the Beyond
Yes, I have noticed that I haven't been around in the last few weeks. It's honestly because I've been so busy, and not busy with fun stuff. My blog posts for my author's corner have dwindled the past three weeks, all failing to be given to me and thus not shared with you. I've been … Continue reading Updates from the Beyond
Tiaras, crowns and the royal throne!
I thought that I should give you all an update on what's going on book-wise. I've been posting excerpts for awhile now, but I think a succinct post on them all might be helpful. To bring it all down to the basics, I've been editing a lot lately and not writing. This has got to … Continue reading Tiaras, crowns and the royal throne!
Excitement and more!
As most of you know, I spent two weeks traveling around the US from the East Coast to almost the West Coast. What you don't know is that on my way back from Montana to Texas, I had an amazing visit with fellow WIPpeter and friend, Sarah Hart. She met up with me at the … Continue reading Excitement and more!
