Good morning! Guess what! Tomorrow is my birthday, so you're getting something extra special today. I'm currently editing the prequel to my novel that's out...this one is called DYING EMBERS. It's so exciting. I should have it done by the end of this week (in theory). Today you will get two scenes, the first is … Continue reading WIPpet Wednesday: June 5th, 2013
Each month I have a writers group meeting in Arlington, TX where we discuss what our monthly goals are. I think I might be a little overambitious this month, but I need to get it done. This group hasn't met since March, so it was great to finally get together again, with someone new AND … Continue reading Goals for June
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 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!).

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
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)
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.
February is fast and coming. AKA THAT'S TOMORROW! Yikes! I have two goals for Feb. I'm changing it up from my original goals because I need the help. So I have two goals, aside from my general school studies and actually being up-to-date with my readings. 1. Write my super secret project 2. Edit "Dying … Continue reading February Goals!
