It's National Novel Writer's Month! Time to put thoughts down and hammer out the majority or entirety of a novel, right? Well, I am doing just that. I am at the halfway mark in the last book of my trilogy and I have a short story due and what better month to tackle this adventure … Continue reading How I Started NaNoWriMo in the Negative
So, it's been months since I posted. I'd like to say I was backpacking or researching or been hammering out novels one after another. No, I've just been living life and getting caught up with it at every turn. And who wakes up and stretches their arms out all refreshed?! I'm more like this kid: … Continue reading Back From Hibernation

I sat down with author of the newly released Steampunk Dystopian novel, The Cogsmith's Daughter, Kate M. Colby. We had a little talk about her processes, ideas … Continue reading New Author ALERT!

On top of that, I have been trying to focus some free time on book sales. So, first … Continue reading Give Away & Updates

All except anger. That one always confuses my clarity until about a half day later. What pushes you into being your best?
If you are a published author, recall the time before you released your first book. Whether you self-published or went through a publishing house, there must have been energy surrounding you. I draw closer with each day to my lifelong goal of releasing a story for the world to share. It's exciting and terrifying all … Continue reading Launch Prep
