    ‘Hunter Shan: Rising Storm’ Cover Reveal

    Here it is!!! But first a word from my sponsor… Just kidding, I don’t have a sponsor. What I do have is an amazing support system of friends and family who have been my cheerleaders from the very beginning. I am eternally grateful to have them in my life. For those who don’t have a support system of a cheer squad ready with words of encouragement I truly wish you will find your flock, your pack, your pride, your [random animal group name here]. Until then, “You can do it!”, “You are amazing!”, “Get your butt in the chair and write!” (<– For my writerly friends), “Stay Hydrated”. On with…

    Hooked on Stories and a Giveaway

     The Stories That Started It All Every reader (that I know of) all remember that one (or two) story/series that sucked them into the world of reading. For me, it was two series’. The first was The Mandie Mystery series by Lois Gladys Leppard, a light-hearted mystery following the life of Mandie Shaw and the puzzles that she either stumbled upon or her curiosity that got the better of her. She and her friends became determined to figure it out which usually led to some sort of trouble and excitement. For a young girl (like I was) I truly fell in love with all of her lively adventures. The next series…

    Why the name change?

    Hello everyone. You may have noticed a new look and a name change to the blog. It is now my official author name. All (most) of my future books shall bare this name. T’is only the beginning of many new things to come. I have decided to change my blog title to my author name and across all my social media. Keeps everything simple. I am currently working on getting a website up and running and I got to say this has been the most difficult and trying time of my publishing process. There are so many choices, both free and paid options, and to someone who is not fluent in…

    Changes Are Coming

    Richard_Carter via Visual hunt / CC BY-NC Over this next month many things are changing. I am starting up a newsletter about my writing, publishing ups and downs, and free writing samples from my debut novel. I am getting excited and feeling a bit frustrated due to things not running as smoothly as I would have liked. Don’t worry. I am not discouraged. I think I may have signed up for a bit too many sites that are supposed to help me achieve all my marketing dreams. I am unsure if some of these are leading me down the right path for me or not, but it’s worth a try. If…

    Goals for the Near Future

    freestock.ca ♡ dare to share beauty via Visualhunt / CC BY Just a quick post this week! I am not a New Year’s resolution kind of person, but I do believe in goals. Goals can spark us to move forward to accomplish many great things. Telling a few people our goals can give us the fine kick in the bottom that we need because we don’t want to fail. (Having to tell our friends that we didn’t meet our goals is something most of us don’t want to do – besides, our friends can be great cheerleaders, right?) There are some goals that I would like to work on these…

    Setting Goals.

And, I couldn’t be happier about it.  I have been so busy with my writing and Christmastime that I have put a slight halt to my blogging. I love you all for your patience. Thank you! Christmas is almost upon us, again, and there’s so much to prepare, lists to check off, people to see, and, of course, writing to be finished. I have given myself a bit of time to chew over what I wrote in the month of November and am doing a bit more world building…

    Nine more days left of NaNoWriMo.

    After about 35,000 words of writing I am still moving forward. With some busy days mixed in I have slowed down a bit, but am hoping to get back on track again and plow ahead. My goal today is to write as often as I can, whenever I have a moment I will sit and write. One thing I have learned during NaNoWriMo is that word sprints are fun and super helpful to get my words down without over thinking. A word sprint is when you (and hopefully others) write for ten or fifteen minutes (or for however long you wish) as much and as fast as you can without overthinking.…
