Dark Illusions: the Beginning – Extended Edition – Chapter One

HER FOOT SLAMMED INTO a puddle and water splashed her jeans, making them cling to her legs. From the brief rain earlier in the evening, many were scattered along the pavement, which made it hard not to land in one. None of that concerned her as she barreled her way through the murky streets. {read more}

Man oh man

Big bombshell dropped at the end of the story today. Words were flowing fairly well and the story is too. It’s getting intense though. I’m curious to see what’s going to come from that big ol’ drop of information. Julian and Kat’s relationship will be tested at this point. Big time. But I think they’llContinue reading “Man oh man”

Officially halfway through

And I’m enjoying using the laptop on battery for the first time in a long time. I was gifted a new battery since mine had reached critical level from my lovely editor. Love her and I super duper appreciate it. Early birthday gift in many ways. My birthday is August 15th. First day so IContinue reading “Officially halfway through”

Will she write words?

Nope. Just words again today. Doing well with the words though. Today is over 2K again. That’s good. Today’s word count for War of the Lycaen Started today at – 37,352 Ended today at – 39,480 Total word count for today – 2,128

I’m being sucky, I know.

I’m trying to save time right now. But I want to ensure I keep track of the word count. Next week I should be posting more information. I see I’m almost halfway done with this book which is fabulous. Should be a new newsletter coming next week too. Sign up below for the information I’llContinue reading “I’m being sucky, I know.”

Where does this lead

Had an interesting turn happen. Suddenly it’s not just Verrick who may have the chance to do something outside of the relationship, but Kylarra. Although knowing Kylarra as I do, she won’t. There are a many things that the girl does to tick Verrick off, to get under his skin. But at the end ofContinue reading “Where does this lead”

What happens when our consciousness expands

We either meet a person who seems so advanced or spiritual and they seem to know things we don’t. Or we simply can’t grasp and understand a word they’re saying. When I say that, I think of Eckhart Tolle. Years ago I read his book and I’m not sure if it were in one ofContinue reading “What happens when our consciousness expands”

Forgive them. Now thank them.

Forgive them because you both need it. Thank them for adding to your growth as a human being. I understand him in ways that is hard to put to words. One minute I want to ring his neck. The next minute I’m all, I getchoo boy. No worries. Either way, I love him. He’s teachingContinue reading “Forgive them. Now thank them.”

Intuition? What is that?

Intuition is that small whisper that you feel within. If you ask yourself a question, a tiny voice will speak within you and guide you. People doubt it, worry over if it’s right, etc. But it’s not the one that you can doubt. It’s a knowing. It’s the one which deep deep deep inside of you willContinue reading “Intuition? What is that?”

Another quick one so I can focus on editing

A whole 67 words today, lol. Still, that’s a good thing since it’s 67 I had more than yesterday so thank you Universe! lol Hopefully next week things will get quiet while I write. Since I truly dislike excuses and whining, that’s all I’ll say about that. Saving time is also why these latest postsContinue reading “Another quick one so I can focus on editing”


One of those days one can’t escape as a work at home individual. Everything that can throw me into a tailspin is. My words suffered and a certain older individual is just . . . yeah. Lots of sighing, yelling, etc., from them so dogs are picking up on that and being a handful. EvenContinue reading “Quickie”

Almost forgot

This is why I do these before I edit. I almost forgot! lol I get so dang into the editing (or book cover making), then suddenly all day has passed by. Well, not that bad, but it can so easily get that bad. So not talkie about the story. But I did want to shareContinue reading “Almost forgot”

Verrick’s revenge

So in fact we find out that Verrick’s bite is . . . nasty. In my head I saw the after effects, but until I began to write, there was no guarantee on how it would turn out. Today we find out that we don’t want Verrick to bite us in his beastly form! It’sContinue reading “Verrick’s revenge”

Just word count and quick note

Was gonna try to get a few more words in to raise my daily count, but meh. I have been finishing Dark Illusions: The Beginning – The Extended Edition. Which yay, I did! Now I have to read through the final time and I can send it to Jeanie. So today’s word count was low.Continue reading “Just word count and quick note”

Oh, she got herself in trouble

So admittedly he should’ve expected that reaction. One doesn’t prod a redhead for long and expect them to remain casual complacent beings, more so when they are known for having a temper and being protective of their mate. And even more when one knows who their parents are. But then Luke understood exactly what heContinue reading “Oh, she got herself in trouble”

He needs to just stop

Mister creepy is harassing Kylarra too much. I don’t think he understands that it’s one thing to cage her, but then to start to harass her? Kylarra’s been a prisoner like that before. The last thing anyone would want to do is imprison that little redhead and then try to touch her. Especially after treatingContinue reading “He needs to just stop”

Verrick is being a naughty lil boy

I assumed I knew what Verrick was up to at the end of Fury of a Queen, but of course – I didn’t. Turns out he was up to other things. Now I’m finding out that he didn’t go straight home to Lycaen Ridge. Although in truth, I should’ve guessed because he’s far more intelligent than heContinue reading “Verrick is being a naughty lil boy”

We have finished this one and now to the next

Finished Discovery of an Enchantress today at 75,492 words. I was going to continue tomorrow, but the more I looked at that last line, the more I was all . . . no. This is the end of this book. I could’ve continued, but as I was pointing out to my friend Ange the other day, there isContinue reading “We have finished this one and now to the next”
