Welcome to October! As promised, Residual Haunting -- my first ghost/semi-horror/paranormal story -- has found its way onto Wattpad and its own Story Blog. (Take a moment to admire Chris Howard's amazing artwork on the cover! I absolutely love it!) Now then ... Why am I posting a draft of this novel online for free? … Continue reading Residual Haunting is now Live
By the close of this week I will have finished the edits on Tapped. I started this book two years ago for Camp NaNoWriMo and sent its second draft to a wonderful editor by the name of Gabriel Fitzpatrick. (Authors, if you ever see him advertising to do some work, take him up on it. … Continue reading Nearing “The End”
The beast roared again. It knew Relo was there. It had known the moment he’d walked into the cave, its heightened sense of taste and smell had alerted the beast to this trespass. But Relo had anticipated this. In thirty-four years as a Tapped Acolyte he’d hunted every species Nellis had to offer. He knew … Continue reading Attack of the Secondary Character – Round Robin Discussion
If I had spaceship shaped confetti I would totally be throwing it everywhere right now! My first ever science fiction, Deviation, has been released by Double Dragon Publishing. For right now I only have the publisher's purchase link but as soon as it becomes available on Amazon and Barnes&Noble I'll be certain to shove those … Continue reading Deviation Release!
I promised I'd post my favorite scene from the upcoming novel Dead Magic so ... here we go. Once again, I'm not one of those people who likes spoilers ... Unless I get invested in a character, then I have to know if they survive the book/story. No, really, I flip to the end of … Continue reading Favorite Scenes — Dead Magic Edition
The beginning of this book was a little rough. I had a hard time understanding what was going on, which might have been done on purpose since the character didn't know what was going on either. As a reader this was a trifle frustrating since I prefer to know just a little bit more than … Continue reading Book Review – Incantation by Annamaria Bazzi
As pointed out in my previous post, I made a stupid mistake with an avocado and managed to cut the nerves in two of my fingers. Given my chosen profession, this has been problematic. While I can hand-write everything still fine (because I'm right-handed and all that), I cannot type with the speed and duration … Continue reading Life Sans Two Fingers
Today I have a guest post from RJ Blain, author of the newly released Inquisitor. There's all sorts of goodies in this post, including a book blurb and excerpt, so I won't be too long-winded in my introduction. I asked Ms. Blain about how she made her werewolves different from other werewolves within the genre … Continue reading RJ Blain – On Unique Werewolves
Woot! It's time to make my list of things for next year! Really, I love this post. It gets me all excited for what I'm about to work on. I did spend a lot of time playing with this new computer and its handy little calendar, so I have a lot of big ideas to … Continue reading A Look At 2014
Looking at my blog schedule I realized that I have all of 3 weeks left in the year. 3 weeks and 2013 is over! Well, three weeks and a few days if we want to be technical. But since the end of this year is actually going to be supremely crazy for me (5-year-old + … Continue reading Good Lord, is 2013 almost over?
