What’s in a name? Coming out of the writer’s closet.

Well, sort of. Only if you don’t know me, or haven’t followed me all this time technically. Never really hid this, I’ve always been pretty open about it like with everything else. I know my openness may freak people out, but it’s me. I spent a childhood silent and nearly took my life. I won’t […]

Poor Kat. Breaks her heart, which broke mine too since I’m in her head.

Love this lighthouse + train track image. Two of my favorite things.

Anora paperback

Has been formatted and sent off. Awaiting the proof to double-check it all and determine if it’s ready for sale. I don’t think there should be issues. Usually it’s only the covers that I have to alter a bit. Simple things that don’t hold it up long for sale. Here is a preview of the […]

Blood By Night – Chapter One

One “I refuse to marry him.” Pacing in front of her father’s desk with her hands on her hips, Kylarra suppressed the growl working its way up. Her aggravation was as clear as day. The dark interior of Viktor’s office grew darker with her mood. Normally it was a place of comfort. Today, anything but. […]

Daily Word Count – Feb 23, 2016

This week it’s all about Kennedy #2. I know the series name will be The Sylphline Realm,  but I don’t have a specific title. I was thinking of doing a play on the situations, but I’m piddling. I really do need covers and names now that I keep track of word count so I’ll work on them. Currently […]

#amediting – pleasant surprises

I thought I’d do a read ahead of all Jeanie’s notes in BLOOD BY NIGHT to have them percolating in my head while I go through my chapter-by-chapter editing. I’m pleasantly surprised to find very little note on content issues. Mostly the only issues she found was the ones I’ve already marked. Places to rewrite […]

Checking in with Witness To The Moon today.  Only got about 30-45 minutes to write so I’ve gotta let he fingers burn at the keys. This is the second in the Enchanting the Moon series. Mila has just encountered a Lycaen named “Alexander” which she knows isn’t his real name. She’s capable of resisting the […]

Kennedy is a stinker. #amwriting

I seriously need to just break Kennedy’s story. I know it’s a series and I’ve gone well past 120K by now, but I just keep writing instead. It’s getting ridiculous.

Update on Kennedy

I’m going to guess I forgot to mark my word count yesterday. Otherwise I wrote 4000 words in only 45 minutes. Ums, no. lol Well, I don’t want to downplay myself. I suppose I could have done that, but the reality is most likely no.

Today I started in on Cody again. That would be my little alchemist. I left off with her trying to escape from the man who is forcing her to help him build something. He has yet to refer to it as anything other than a “project” for him, but Cody isn’t stupid. She pieces things […]
