I can't tell you how nervous I still get when emailing my publisher (or the fact that half the time I'm still in wonder about having a publisher!). I'm not kidding. My first book, FOREVER BURN, has been out since March 1, coming up on three months now, and it seems to be doing fairly … Continue reading Dying Embers: Take Two
I wanted to share this blog and the struggles that I have been dealing with for the past "little" while. It seems over this past week to me that each person's story and struggle is important to understanding who they are and where they come from. It is also rather therapeutic for those who are … Continue reading The Failure of Time
It's hard to struggle. I think that, and then at the same time I think that struggling just adds that much more to the story. I have officially been unemployed since December of 2011. That's sixteen months and heading right into the seventeenth. Yes, I currently work at a church twice a month doing children's … Continue reading Struggling Artist #indie
I finally put the collage together that I've been meaning to do. These are a few photos from people who bought "Forever Burn" and were kind enough to send me the photos of them holding it. I love the community, love, and care that this shows, and seeing all these smiling faces just makes me … Continue reading Forever Burn Collage
I just got home from one of the longest days at school. I'm looking forward to tonight and relaxing with a good friend and a great meal (that she's cooking for me!). So, I checked my mail and in it was a really small, inconspicuous letter. I open in up and WOW! I feel so … Continue reading Good things come in small packages…
Hey y'all (yes, I've been living in Texas far too long). This is a blog hop. Don't know what that is? Good, I didn't either for a bit. Basically, this is a way to learn about some awesome and cool indie authors. I answer a few questions and give them a shout-out! I want to … Continue reading The Next Big Thing: Blog Hop March 20, 2013
So...I finished writing my 85k word novel yesterday in a massive rush of typing away during spring break and now...now I'm not sure what to do. Spending so much time on one project, where my entire focus is only on that, is fantastic but when finished leaves a very odd feeling. It's like a large … Continue reading The Downward Spiral
Welcome! I had to cancel the original party due to the flu-like cold and ridiculously high fever I had. This one will NOT be canceled. I'm bound and determined that if even sick, I will still go! So, come and join me in celebrating the launch of Forever Burn. There will be cool swag that … Continue reading Book Lauch Party rehashed
This world has been crazy the past few weeks for me. I am writing, though not on fiction (unless you are atheist, then maybe it's fiction to you). I am sermonizing. It's actually quite like writing a short story. I'll share it when I'm done. I'm also adding in music to it. Secondly, if you … Continue reading Writing and Book Launching!
I need to preface this post with the fact that I am NOT against cursing in books. So, I am NOT against cursing in books. Have you every seen the movie "Good Will Hunting"? I read something recently where it started to turn into that movie. For the first ten pages there were no curse … Continue reading Fucking Fucks! (Cursing in exposition)
Yesterday, I spent the day at the Dallas Sci-fi Expo/Comic con. It was an amazing experience. I met actors from my favorite TV shows, friends from twitter, and hung out with general geeks like me! Aside from the general grandeur, what amazed me the most was how writing brings people together. I went with a … Continue reading Writing brings people together…
This is one of my favorite scenes. Mostly because James is extremely annoyed. ‘Mr. Sheriff’s Deputy with the extra smelly cologne’ had his hand on her leg and a soft look on his face. “You okay?” “Yeah, I’m fine.” Her brow narrowed and wrinkled between her eyes. It was a look she often gave when … Continue reading James meets Heath
meanie Katherine might possibly have made a few tears roll down my cheek. I don't know how I am blessed with such good friends, but thank you! Amazon.com: Katherine's review of Forever Burn.
I am what most people consider somewhat prolific. I produce a lot of story over a little amount of time. This is particularly true for someone who is a full-time graduate student. This also comes from what are considered amateurs, though I consider myself an amateur so there is little distinction in my book. People … Continue reading Simple Advice
It's gone live on amazon! Release date is March 1, but it's available for pre-order! http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/1938108078/ref=mp_s_a_1?qid=1359604443&sr=8-3&pi=SL75

Launch date is set for March 1, 2013, and I can't stop doing the happy dance and grinning like a wicked crazy fool. I also got … Continue reading Hello!
