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 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
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
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!
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
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
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
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
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!
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!
Hey y'all (I can say that since I live in Texas). I was interviewed by Aaron Speca, an amazing, amazing person. The interview went live today. I have to say, this is was the funnest interview I have done so far. He did a great job on it. ALSO!!!!! On a more exciting note, there's … Continue reading Interview with Aaron Speca & Cover Reveal for “Dying Embers”
I am paving the way toward professionalism in this little world called writing. Yesterday, I was awarded (it's a bidding thing) the job of copy-editing someone's novel. And they're actually going to pay me for it! I've been copy-editing and beta reading for people for the last few years, all for free. This is a … Continue reading Paving the way…
I can see it. Almost taste the joy of crossing that line and being done with the first major round of editing on this novel. There's another finish line that I want to write about today, too. Sarah Hart is publishing her first novella called "The Coin." It's an uplifting and in-depth story. Everything for … Continue reading Finish Line
I have not worked on FOR BY GRACE since last Monday. Oh. My. God! It's insane! I had one whirlwind of a week between class assignments and extra events. My friend had an art show in Friday night, then two of my friends got married on Saturday (to each other, not two different weddings), then … Continue reading Getting back into it
I have a ton of stuff to do today. None of it is actually "due" but I need to get it done. So, why am I blogging? As a procrastination method. One of my really good friends told me the other day... "Adrian, even your procrastination is productive! What even?!" Well, it is. So what … Continue reading Productive Procrastination
“It is. I’m holed up in the security office if you ever want to stop by.” “My section is on the other side of the mall. You know, that part by Santa. Why do parents have to go all insane? Why can’t everyone just stay calm and have a good time anymore? It’s all about … Continue reading For by Grace TIDBITS!
Been editing this evening!! My stuff and chapters for others. Either way, I am making progress on my wall Before. Current.
In my current novel, from the first few chapters, it should be pretty obvious that this is NOT a romance novel. I work with a website called Project Team Beta to find my beta readers and editors. This is the third novel that I have pushed through their site and it might possibly be the … Continue reading To continue on romance…
Okay peoples! Sirena wrote this in a blog post, and I feel the need to reiterate the fact that NOT EVERY NOVEL HAS TO BE ROMANCE! and that NOT EVERY NOVEL IS A ROMANCE NOVEL. I have some wonderful beta's right now. Before I got them, I had to send my chapters through "transit." Basically, … Continue reading On romance in a not romance novel….

All right...The title is............. For by Grace =P This novel follows the life of Deputy Grace Halling and her day to day … Continue reading Super Secret Project (that’s not so secret) Title REVEAL!
