Howdy! Some time ago the awesome Kyle Robert Shultz tagged me in the Writing Rituals tag. And since I've been terrible uninspired of late, I figured I'd finally get around to doing this one and maybe make myself interested in the writing process/my troublesome WIPs again. So here goes. And fair warning, I'm probably the … Continue reading My Utterly Fascinating Writing Rituals
Howdy! So, in trying to come up with a post for today to finish up the relaunch, I went back to the new reviews (that I'm seriously still grinning about) and some resulting conversations in comments and in interviews. So, if you've read The Wildcat of Braeton, you know about the epilogue. If you haven't, I'm … Continue reading What’s Next For Aredor?
Howdy! Excuse the cheesy title. I'm just excited. 🙂 The Rise of Aredor and The Wildcat of Braeton are officially back into the world! 😀 *throws confetti and dances around with pizza* This isn't a long post, just the new cover pics and beautiful links. I'm in the process of getting the 1st and 2nd … Continue reading Aredor Rises Again!
Howdy! The re-release for The Rise of Aredor series approaches. 🙂 Formatting was an adventure, but it's done. Proof copies have been ordered, and I'm actually expecting them today or tomorrow. So once I get everything checked out and approved with those, it's time to finalize a release date! 🙂 I'm tentatively planning for August … Continue reading We’re Almost There!
Howdy! This is my Realm Makers recap post/amazing things I learned at the conference. I don't have pictures to share because, honestly, photography really isn't my thing. I think it's part of the writer brain that makes me want to just soak everything in visually and mentally and not try and snap pictures. So sorry … Continue reading Go With All Your Heart
Howdy! This might be a kind of rambly post because I'm not sure where I'm even starting with it. I can feel your confidence in me right now. 😛 There's all sorts of advice about writing - write what you know, write first, edit later, write the book you want to read. But what happens … Continue reading Write Fearlessly
Howdy! Time for a writing update! I feel like I've been kind of hit and miss over the last month or so, but as the post title might give you an indication, it's been kind of crazy. First things - I'm still studying away for my test that's now in just two weeks! My day … Continue reading Drowning In Words
Howdy! A few weeks ago I finished typing up The Wolf Prince and have done a few rounds of edits on it. And now I ready for some readers to look at it! If you've never been a beta reader, you basically get to be a first reader of the book, tell me what you … Continue reading Looking For Beta Readers!
Howdy! This is a repost from last year, a short story I wrote to commemorate Memorial Day and the reasons we should be celebrating. (And a quick note to say I'm off on vacation this week and will not be posting again on Thursday. Have a good one!) I sit in the car, trying to … Continue reading Rest Easy, Soldier
Howdy! The other day I read a blog post about writing misconceptions. One of the top ones was "write what you know". The author of the blog called out whoever originally said that, and I totally agreed. I mean if you're to take it literally, you should have had more ridiculous adventures than Indiana Jones. … Continue reading Write What You Know
