I didn't plan on posting to this account until January and that's probably going to remain the case after this post, but as I have a good little following over here I wanted to give you all the details on WHY this blog is going to go quiet and, if you want to keep up … Continue reading BIG projects, all the time!!!

Fun writing stuff!
If you've been reading my blog for a while you'll know I'm a part-time (hoping to one day be full time) writer. If you're a new reader (because I seem to have found a few of you recently - welcome!), I write YA/ Fantasy fiction which I hope to one day get published. In the … Continue reading Fun writing stuff!
I feel like I've been harping on about this quite a bit this past week but, to be honest, when you don't have anyone else advertising you kind of have to become your own annoying publicist. One of my short story series, Etta!, is finally available in paperback WORLDWIDE. It's a fun thing to think … Continue reading Paperback Writer…

Honest Thoughts on Self Publishing
I'm sure by now you've noticed I self published my first book; Etta! I figured I'd do a little blog post just to talk about the experience and the reaction I got from it.

Well, almost... Today is the day I put the first of a series I am working on out into the world! It's currently sitting in Amazon's hands, being reviewed, until they decide to let it go free so people [like you] can download it. Naturally, I'm nervous. I enjoy the writing but the hardest part … Continue reading I’m published!!
For a long time I had the mind-set that self publishing wasn't really what I'd consider 'published'. To be fair I still, in a way, think this. It's not that self publishing is a cop out or a sign that you're a bad writer, it's just that I strive to become published by a publishing house because … Continue reading Self Publishing
I finished my novel!
It's taken me years. Actual years. I started writing my first book in 2009, I think it was. I've written a few since then but this was the one I was determined to finish and try to get published first because it's my baby. Edit after edit, painful year after year, I've worked on this to the point … Continue reading I finished my novel!
