The End of June is Nigh

The End of June is Nigh

Nigh is a rather pretty word, don’t you think? I do, so really, everything else is irrelevant lol Anyway – so the end of June is approaching, and I’m really excited because I’ve had a pretty good month. Got a lot done, have come up with a couple of great plotbunnies (which means I now have even more to do, but still), and I’m excited. Compile Edit Notes for Done! Edit D – DONE! Send D to Bree – DONE and very, very nervous lol Start in on drafting my Blog series – Just starting it, but that qualifies as DONE! Plot out secret project – First round done! Cheer on my fellow #Writemotivationers and others – Been doing Keep up with Social Media – Think I did this Keep up the Lore4 Work! – I NEED...

Cover Reveal – DRAWN TO YOU by Angi Black

I’m so excited to have the cover reveal for DRAWN TO YOU by Angi Black on my blog today. DRAWN TO YOU comes out August 19th 2014 anywhere and everywhere ebooks are sold. Here’s a little bit about it: College life is a breath of fresh air for 20 year old Ellie Baylor, a painfully shy but beautiful art major. She has her canvas and charcoal and that’s more than enough. Her choice to go to school far from home and the watchful eye of her strict parents seems like the perfect thing for smooth sailing into an easy life. But when River Daniels, a charming artist with eyes the color of hot chocolate, asks her to join him in a project for class, Ellie may get more than just an A. She might find out how to live. Here’s a little bit about Angi: Angi...

June is almost gone

June is almost gone

2014 is not being my year. I’m resigned to 2015 being much better, and so, I’m making 2014 my preparation year for 2015 Sound like a plan? I THINK IT DOES So – then it comes to what I’ve been up to this month. My parents left on June 6th. It’s always a little heartbreaking when they go. I miss them even before we get to the airport. But that’s life living over 8k miles away, and there’s always Skype. Speaking of which, Kami now recognizes them on the computer. It was absolutely adorable. Now to the writing and the writing todo list. Compile Edit Notes for D – DONE Edit D – in the process of Send D to Bree – obviously can’t do before 2 is done Start in on drafting my Blog series – yeah...

SILO – a twisted taste of what’s to come

I’m so excited to have the co-authors of CREED guest post on my blog today. Without further ado, here’s Trisha Leaver and Lindsay Currie with some amazing news! ~ With the release date of CREED rapidly approaching, Lindsay and I have been fielding questions about what our co-authored voice sounds like,  how psychologically twisted our collective mind is, and do I need to read all of your co-authored pieces with the lights on? Rather than simply answer those questions, we thought we’d take it one step further and actually show you! We toyed with writing a prequel-type novella to set the stage for CREED, but you know us…why write a novella to CREED when you can give them an entirely different book to enjoy! After much discussion with our agents and an...

Bloghop – My Writing Process

Bloghop – My Writing Process

I’ve been tagged. I’m it. I’m so bad at doing things like these usually, but I’m making a concerted effort to rectify that. Brenda Drake tagged me to do this, and so, here I am – about to tag others. But first, I’ll answer some questions What am I working on? I actualy have a couple of irons in the fire. I’m editing a YA Historical Horror to send to my agent at the end of the month. And then there’s this secret project I’m working on with a co-author – SECRET. It’s a very different genre and type of story for me, soooo that’s all I’ll say about that. And then I have a couple of stewing plotbunnies that require intermittent stirring.   How does my work differ from others in its...

May – the busiest month yet

May – the busiest month yet

My parents are visiting from Australia. While this sounds awesome, and don’t get me wrong, it is – it’s also exhausting. Why, you might ask – and I would answer that we’ve arranged so many different activities and trips, that I’m going to need another vacation after they leave. Anyway – as you can imagine I’ve not got a lot done writing wise. But that’s okay. Take mom and dad on an awesome vacation – ONE down, more to go Do a couple of blog posts – ONE so far … I WILL do another Bite nails while waiting for feedback on D – Three feedbacks down, three to go Keep up with Social Media as much as possible while parents are here – I think I’m doing okay on this Cheer everyone on!...

Another April Gone

Another April Gone

This month has been hella hectic. We’ve been preparing for my parents’ arrival at the start of May, getting the house ready and all that. Then I’ve been taking baby to babygym (which is awesome by the way) and I’ve had work’s open enrollment for health insurance to take care of. Then I decided to draft a book I’ve been meaning to draft all year and voila – done. Take hectic, add a dash of crazy, and here I am at the end of April, with more to show for it than intended. So it’s time take stock of my month so far, and look to the next. Complete Pantheon Tasks on time – Done Prepare for Parent’s arrival – Done CP stuff – Done Slowly work on AI/D/aWIP – FINISHED Work on Writemotivation Site...
