Preparing to Write Your Novel

My books have all been reformatted and the two books which I wrote for my sons company have been released. I am now free to start on my next project. Seeds of the Damned, the story of Rafe and Hattie, has been months in the making. My outline is coming together and I have started…

Author Musings-When Your Family & Friends Don’t Read Your Book

I came across an interesting discussion on Twitter the other day. A fellow author had posed a question to us in the writing community. Why doesn’t my family or friends read my work? I was shocked and amazed at how similar everyone’s answer was and I thoroughly enjoyed the discussion. It was as if the…

Wings of The Warrior Update: Dreams vs. Reality

I had a dream…well, more like  a daydream filled with hope. I had a goal to publish the third book of this series, Wings of The Warrior: The Huntress Chronicles III  on October 31, 2018. You know…twenty-two days from now?! Unfortunately, what I did not plan on was the effect this book was going to have on me….

It’s Not Writer’s Block…I Swear

It’s not Writer’s Block. It’s not. I swear it isn’t. I was doing so good writing The Wings of The Fallen. I was in a groove and then the holidays came. I thought to myself that after the holiday season was over then maybe I would get back on my writing horse, but nope. That…

So, you want to write a book…

  I think the question that I, and probably most writers, get frequently is how do I write a book. I must confess that I’m not sure how to answer that question. I kind of feel like, in the words of my dad, you either poop or get off the pot. I’m sure there are…

Editing, Writing, and More

  I finished writing Awakened Moon and now I am stranded in no man’s land. The manuscript is off to my editor and the question of do I start the next novel begins to form in my mind. The last book in The Hidden Realm Series is practically written. The plot, notes, and outline are…
