It’s Been A While

It’s Been A While

Phew. It’s been quite a few months since my last post. Since January it looks like. Time really flies when you are focusing to the exclusion of all else on getting your first draft done. I can’t believe we’re already closing in on June. I’m just now starting draft 2 of Aileen 7. I’m about…

Treading Water

Treading Water

The book is pushing back hard today. I should have known bragging on Facebook about hitting word count every day last week in Aileen 7 would jinx me eventually. The morning wasn’t so bad. Just under my goal of 1000. However, coming back after lunch was a different story. For some reason, the words aren’t…

There is a Facebook live tonight, Jan. 5, at 8 p.m. EST on my author page where I will be answering all of your book related questions. It’ll be the same set up as in the past where I take the generalized questions first. Those pertaining to writing, other series, future series, etc. Toward the…

It’s out!

It’s out!

Merry Christmas to everyone who celebrates. Just a quick message. Trials of Conviction is now available to order at all retailers. The print version is also out. The Audio version is also under work. No estimate on when that will be available. It will likely be a few months. There will be a Facebook Live…

Finish line

Finish line

This last week has been a roller coaster. I think this will be the last time I schedule a release around Christmas. It’s just too hard. Pre-orders are fine. That’s not the issue. It’s everything else that happens around this time of year. I haven’t done any of those things. All of the gifts have…

Listless

I was hoping to start writing this week. So far I’ve not written a single word–excluding this blog. My brain has decided to take an impromptu vacation. It’s pretty much considered AWOL at this point. Every time I sit down in front of the computer, it’s like I’ve forgotten how to write. The words desert…

Sneak Peak

I just spent the last two hours trying to format Of Bone and Ruin for print. Everything was going fine for the first half hour. I got all the way to the end before I hit something that messed everything up. Then I proceeded to use the next hour and a half trying to undo…

What’s Next?

What’s Next?

Firebird 5 (the title of which was decided on Friday) is now in the hands of the beta readers and my editor. It’s left me a bit at loose ends as I decide what I should do next. The first couple weeks after a book is finished and no longer on my plate is usually…

Book Update

For those of you who didn’t see the Facebook post last week, I finished the second draft of Firebird 5 last Wednesday. Just in time for the Husband and I to fly to St. Lucia the next day for a vacation we’d been planning since February. Having the draft done in time was one of…
