Snug wug baby featured image. Yes, I annoy her. She’s the cute one so I sort of have to. Not entirely sure where my day went. I got up at a reasonable hour and then poof. Now it’s 4:18 pm, my hands are so cold that I’m struggling to write because it’s NOT warm here thoughContinue reading “Okay so time disappeared”
The official cover for The Culling Cycle. A science fiction novel I’ve been working on behind-the-scenes. Secret is out! More information to follow. Stay tuned.
Working on Under Empty Stars today so I’m going to be sharing a snippet from the book. I am going through my deep edit round, which puts me far ahead of schedule, so I’m hoping nothing comes up to slow me down. Should be fairly straight-forward from here.
“Stone went down. Hard. The leaves raised from the ground and settled down as if a large tree had fallen.”
The book I’m currently editing is Under Empty Stars. And today’s snippet will come from that book. Then there was her. The one who wouldn’t let him. Kept touching him, feeding him. Heat built inside him and he flipped the small switch upward on the console. He’d avoid focusing on her. Needed to anyway. Distraction. Nothing forContinue reading “Free Friday Snippet from Under Empty Stars”
Been a few weeks since I’ve posted a free Friday snippet. Apologies. Just a quiet time for me. Today, our snippet comes from the novel, Daughter of the Red Planet. This is the first time we’re introduced to Stone.
Today’s Free Friday Snippet comes from Hope of the Future. The first book that sets the stage for The Guardian of Life Science Fiction Fantasy series.
Yipperdoodles! Jeanie sent me Sylphline Realm – Royal Blood last night as she said she would. It was too late for me to really start in on it. I may not get much work done today either. I’m working on the paperback for Sylphline Realm – Crown of Ice which also happens to be whereContinue reading “Deep edits beginning & free Friday snippet!”

This what something I pondered a lot while I wrote Cessation. Not just the look, but how would it function?
In Cessastion, there is a bit of information regarding the laboratory Cody works in. Within that lab is a new microscope which is to be a futuristic version of the ones we have.
Chapter One Everything is dead or dying. How can anyone live in this atmosphere? They can’t. I can’t. The vast atmosphere laid out before her was filled with various hues of brown, tan, deep red, or black. It depressed her; exhausted her. The red sun and red moon combined their efforts and bore down hardContinue reading “Ancient Scars – Chapter One”
I’m at 61 thousand + words and I feel like there is much more to tell. I’m very curious if I’ll be able to complete this book, or it’ll keep going. I think I can, but it may end up being a lot longer than normal. I could well go to the 100K mark, justContinue reading “Where will it end”
Late so just word count Word count I started Friday with: 57,681 Word count I ended Monday with: 59,509 Total for the day: 1,828 words Question of the Day: Describe your perfect house. Use images if you like. *the image used as a thumbnail represents a scene written today.
I’m so wiped. Had a tummy ache today this morning, which is always exhausting. On top of that, I’ve been trying to build a tall arbor for a climbing rose, not a wide one, so I’ve been digging posts a lot. Well, it’s one post, but I’ve had to dig multiple holes for it, haha. At first my idea was to use the post as a placement for the trellis, but then I realized that the end of the porch there is at a sort of angle. So when I make it straight out from the porch, it looked wonky.
Too much going on. Just word count. Word count I started Friday with: 53,266 Word count I ended Monday with: 55,761 Total for the day: 2,495 words Question of the Day: What are your favorite toppings for a sandwich? *the image used as a thumbnail represents a scene written today.
I am now over halfway through editing Ancient Scars.
I worked in the yard this morning so I already feel wiped out and it’s only 1:30 pm. I’ve been cleaning up a corner where old lumber had gathered. The wood made a cave that the rats enjoyed bedding up in.
Got a full hour of writing in for a change, so my word count is incredibly nice. I’m liking it. Only just now got the dark wifi back on, so I’m only making this a word count, and the Question of the Day. Word count I started Friday with: 48,882 Word count I ended Monday with: 51,189 TotalContinue reading “Love it”
New planet, new things to explore. Well the planet isn’t new to us, since it’s Earth as we know it (though in the future), but my character Ellie has never been to Earth. She was born on Eli’ane, which is much like Mars to us in many ways.
Didn’t post this on Friday. I was tired, and had been printing out Under Empty Stars (166 pages!) as well as getting my newsletter ready, so I was a bit tired. Today was an emotional day of writing. Had to keep taking a deep breath so I could focus and not start crying along with Ellie, haha. I’llContinue reading “Gush fest”
