    Release Day Party: Whisper!

    To celebrate the release of my third book baby 😀 I decided to make a list of some things I made notes for that never made it into the book. 😀 One: Wallace Enterprises I had planned a rivalry between Wallace Enterprises and Xacharias Corp from the start. It was always a side plot, but it was one that stressed Jade’s father out a whole lot and was the source of some of his snippiness. When I actually got into the story, though, he was snippy for an entirely different reason, and Wallace Enterprises only gets a tiny, tiny mention in a scene where Jade is describing something she saw…

    Updates & Fun Stuff :)

    Guys!! LOL! 😀 In an effort to keep myself from burning out, while WHISPER (finally getting an all caps upgrade!) is with the editor, I’m going to take a small writing break, kind of, and dive into a pile of books. Not head first, of course, because books are hard. 🙂 The “kind of” is because I’m planning on outlining my top secret duology next month!! I cannot wait to talk more about. Soon. 😛 But yes, I finished the first draft of WHISPER, somehow with enough time to do a round of editing! Once I finished the outline, I knew I could get the first draft done by the…

    Cover Reveal: Winter’s Siren!

    GUYS! LOL! First off, can I get some kudos on that banner? 😛 So, before I get to the cover, I wanted to chat a tiny bit about the process. 😀 With my last novel, I had one concept idea. Of course, I thought of one or two other things, but I didn’t like any of the mental images better than the one I went with. This time, I had several ideas! Well, I had four. 🙂 I gave my cover designer three, and she came back with the two she thought would be the most striking. What you’ll see below is concept number one. It’s the second concept I…

    Release Day Party: No Rest for the Wicked!

    YAY! Book is here! To celebrate, I’m interviewing main character Tatum, her cousin Gretchen, and Emmerick, the drifter who lives in their basement. ^_^ Me: So excited! How are you guys? Tatum: Oh, great. You know. You’re just airing my dirty undies for the world to see. Gretchen: (laughs) I think she made me look pretty good. Emmerick: Let’s not forget who’s actual dirty laundry is on display. Me: That didn’t answer the question, but okay? So tell me, what’s you’re favorite part of this story? Tatum: The end. Gretchen: (laughs) I also like the end but for a completely different reason than you, I’m sure. Emmerick: My favorite was watching…

    Dance of the Queue Fairy – Part Two

    My story backlog has gotten pretty ridiculous thanks to spending a great deal of time in a neurotic sweat hut. It’s been hard for me to focus, but I found a quote the other day that said, “Motivation comes from within.” Which means, only I could find it. So, I did. Thanks largely to my family putting up with my mood swings and giving me copious amounts of hugs. ^_^ Right now, of course, I’m working on “Winter’s Siren” – a retelling of a classic tale that is going well and should be done by the end of this month! More deets on the inspiration at a later date. I worried that this…
