    Cover Reveal: House of Falling Embers Edition

    GUYS!! ^_^ It’s cover reveal day!! Every cover experience is different. With my first and third books, I knew exactly what I wanted. With my second book, I had a few clear ideas to bounce off my cover designer. But this time, I had no idea. I Googled something along the lines of “book covers with trees” and then after a few minutes, I gave up and drew up some concepts and then didn’t even go with any of them either. Ha. Usually when I get my mock up covers, we’re pretty much done except for a large or small amount of nitpicking. But this time, I had a giant…

    Once There Was An Excerpt

I’m not sure why, but I mostly wrote on the weekend. I averaged around 8k words every Saturday or Sunday. So, I guess it’s not a surprise I finished when I did.

    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…
