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 feel as though I'm completely jumping into part of the market world. I've signed and paid for my first ad to be placed (no, I'm not saying where or how much--maybe if it works or does work, there will be another post on that). I've been doing a lot of giveaways with eBooks and … Continue reading Jumping in, two feet forward
Today is one of those days that I will forever remember. December 1, 2013 marks so many milestones in my life that to put one above the other is completely impossible. There are two very important ones that I want to talk about. Family is something extremely important to me. Most people don’t know, and … Continue reading A day for the future…
Sorry about missing last week. I couldn't drag myself to the computer to do this (even though I skipped class and didn't even have that to contend with). NaNoWriMo is going incredibly slow for me. Meaning, I'm not really writing lately. I need to fix that if I want to even hit 0,000 words this … Continue reading WIPpet Wednesday!! November 20, 2013
Tomorrow marks the first day of my blog tour for Dying Embers. There will be interviews, excerpts posted and spotlights all over the internet! Well, at least a small portion of the internet. I can't tell you how excited I am for this book to come out (in both senses of that term). Dying Embers … Continue reading Crashing into the atmosphere!
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!
Good morning and welcome to the land of the living. I absolutely almost forgot that today was Wednesday. *hides* but I remembered!! In time, of course. It's been a crazy week, but this morning I was filled with reading about Zombis in Haiti (they're real there), and witches who are high on drugs and use … Continue reading WIPpet Wednesday!!

Today is a day to be remembered! But isn't every day? =P I spent about six hours writing today and completed the novel "Ashes Fall" in almost record time. If you only count the days that I wrote during NaNo, it probably is. However, I started writing this novel in February. It was slow going; … Continue reading Ashes Fall and the end of the James Matthew’s Trilogy
