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 have an abundance of ideas. This is not abnormal for me. I'm currently in the middle of three novels, two being edited and one that I just started writing. I am also working on, in my head of course, the sequel to Forever Burn, called either Ashes Fall or Blaze, Fire, Blaze and the … Continue reading Abundance of ideas…
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
“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!
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!
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
Oh goodness! Yesterday I surpassed even my own expectations and was up crazy late writing. So...that's why this post comes to you now. I finished three chapters yesterday. Fender Bender and an Asshole, Son of God, & Whiskey and Wine. Goodness! But I'm very close to being done with the major writing aspects of this … Continue reading Holy cow!
I finished two chapters today (one is short, I swear I'm not THAT insane). I am, however, working on chapter 11. There are 15 total currently, but I might drop one. We'll see. The first chapter (aka ch 9) has some really important stuff in it. And ch 10 tells a bit more background for … Continue reading In the Line & Conspiracy to Commit
Yes, that is the title of the chapter. No, I will not tell you more! This chapter was easy to write until the end and then I blundered like a baby while I wrote the last two thousand words or so. It was so emotional for the main character I just couldn't help myself. Anyway, … Continue reading Drunken Jesus
So, selling books is awesome! But... I sold a book to someone I don't know and that is way cooler! While the support from my friends and family is wonderful, to actually sell the book more people need to buy it than just them. And it's happening!!! So go buy on amazon or B&N. Amazon … Continue reading Sales!
This is a fantastic email to get from my publisher! The Ebook is now available. I'm saying it once. Buy it!! smashwords
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!
My copies have officially arrived in the mail!! w00t! Just in time for me to leave for the weekend.
I finished writing chapter 4 of the super secret project that's not so secret yesterday. It took longer than I expected and the chapter itself is a bit shorter than I thought it would be (my guess is that'll change in edits), but it is finished for the first draft. This chapter was incredibly intense … Continue reading One up, One down
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)
