  • Coming to all

    Coming soon to all the book pages. I am going to be recording the first chapter on all my work, to add to the official pages. I will be posting them over on my main YouTube channel – I am starting with Anora since I have been discussing it a lot on many of…

  • Anora paperback got held up

    Anora paperback got held up

    The Anora paperback got held up in review by CreateSpace. If you follow me on Facebook, you’ll have seen me post about that on Friday. Not a big deal. CreateSpace needed me to verify that I was the author behind the book. So on Friday, I spent the afternoon getting screenshots of the files in…

  • Anora – Chapter One

    Anora – Chapter One

    The sun drifted lazily through the boughs of the trees. Feeling no need to push on such a relaxing day, the rays shimmered and filtered amongst the feathery tendrils. A mixture of evergreens, oak, fir, pine, cedar, and even a few old redwoods. None of them competing for space, all of them working harmoniously together…

  • Finished Anora this morning

    Finished Anora this morning

    Very pleased that I finished Anora. Although it was left open for a series, I don’t think it will be one. I’m going to have to fix everything and remove the series name. I’ll keep the cover and the series name just in case, but I have no plans to expand. The dogs were acting…

  • Hit my goal with room to spare.

    Totally hit my goal. That’s without any editing shortcuts either. I did a thorough edit. I sent Daughter of the Red Planet to Creech Enterprises with 45 minutes to spare. I’m exhausted so this will be a quick note mostly. I got my newsletter out, and will be taking the weekend off. Also had a great day…

  • Progress – and reached my goal!

    Progress – and reached my goal!

    Today I didn’t get as many words as I would’ve liked. I’m still happy – anything is something! – about it though. I retraced my steps, tried to work out a few things, and then ended up deleting paragraphs so I could just rewrite them instead of trying to work them out. Made it easier, but…

  • Gonna make it quick

    Making good progress with the novel. Can’t help but think it’s because my fingers were starting to hurt from the other keyboard. I don’t have gigantic hands so for me trying to type on the bigger keyboards, it stresses my fingers. I’m getting an adapter for the older keyboard to use it. The keys aren’t as high,…

  • Just under what I like, but I’ll take it

    Just under what I like, but I’ll take it

    Always a bit sluggish on a Monday. I was reading the last part I wrote last Friday, and I couldn’t grasp where to go. Then I realized it was because I needed to switch the POV. Another character has been working his way into the scene here and there (he’d actually been in the very first…

  • Starting to get answers

    Starting to get answers

    We’re finally getting answers. And as typical, the way the answers are being given in the story, isn’t the way I had it planned in my head. Or not planned, but maybe I should say, how I expected it to go. I expected the information to come in a much different way, different person as well.…

    Tired, but that’s a good thing

    Good numbers today. I was able to start on time (almost) so that helped me loads. I got a good advancement in my Daughter of the Red Planet editing too. I have to edit at least ten pages every day to hit my end of the month goal. I have one month of give in that time…

  • The plot thickens

    Had some very interesting ideas hit me for the Guardian of Life series last night. I’m excited to implement it. I swear I’d seen something similar in a movie, but can’t find anything so maybe it was an art drawing. The closest I found to my idea was the “dinobots” in the latest Transformers movie. Love…

  • Totals from past two days

    Finally able to post. I’ve been getting a lot of login attempts through my site and yesterday when I tried to login, I didn’t write the code as it should be, and because a hacker apparently tried my username, I got locked out right away. It’s supposed to be based off the ip so that annoyed…

  • Dang, the girl has spunk.

    Dang, the girl has spunk.

    Well she handled herself quite nicely! I like this girl’s spunk. She’s got some fire. I didn’t think she’d have such fierceness in her, but I may have to readjust my thoughts on Anora. Yesterday she got herself in a predicament that I was curious how she’d handle. Well, I have discovered that she doesn’t back…

    Gonna get in trouble

    Anora is fixing to get into trouble. She is pushing her limits with Storm today. I know he wants to make a point, but I had to leave it so I could edit so I didn’t get to see what he’s going to do about it. She is being defiant and yet I think part of it is…

  • Will they get together after all?

    Will they get together after all?

    When I first began with Anora I thought that her and Storm (male lead criminal) would be at odds, wouldn’t have any sort of love connection. The other day (during the weekend?) I ended up having this idea occur to me about that. The idea came to mind that maybe after all, there may end up being…

    Feel like a chicken running around with her head cut off

    The past two days, I hadn’t written much because on Wednesday, I got a notice from Amazon in the morning. They wanted me to verify I was the author behind Dark Illusions: The Beginning. I had five days or they’d close my account. Not just that book. Everything. Now, since I am the author, obviously that’s…
