things of 2016

2016 is a bit odd to look back on because things have changed so much. It feels like years have passed between now and March and yet, oddly, things in December are beginning to look a little more like they did earlier in the year. I know, cryptic. It’ll all make sense once I get […]

#AmCurrently

#AmCurrently

I’ve decided to occasionally do update posts that aren’t just for the entire year. I stole my #AmCurrently format from Cait at PaperFury because it’s so shiny and versatile. She has agreed to forgive me as long as I feed her lots of cake. #AmCurrently Writing Nothing! I almost feel horrible about it, but not […]

Enchanted Storms is now available

Enchanted Storms is now available

Sometimes being straightforward is so boring. But it’s true, Enchanted Storms is now available in paperback and kindle formats. I’m listening to the playlist because this is likely the last time I’ll listen to these songs in this order… it’s all coming to an end. And at the same time, it’s all beginning. The launch […]

Meet the characters of Enchanted Storms

Meet the characters of Enchanted Storms

Inspired by Erin Bowman (for Vengeance Road) and Susan Dennard (for Truthwitch), I decided to create character cards to give you a chance to meet the characters of Enchanted Storms. While it was fun to play around in pinterest looking for great images that fit my characters, I found it somewhat difficult to create the […]

the peril of proper names

the peril of proper names

It all started with pimchie flowers. The Blue Sword is one of my favorite books and a few years ago I finally got it into my bookclub for everyone to read the wonder that is Robin McKinley. And for about 20 minutes at the beginning of our discussion, all they could talk about was pimchie […]

Enchanted Storms Cover Reveal

Enchanted Storms Cover Reveal

When I revealed the cover of Tattered Heart, I had a whole story behind it. The images that eventually became incorporated into the cover were such an inspiration and focus while writing the novel that the final cover would have seemed incomplete without the story. It wasn’t the same with Enchanted Storms. I came across […]

things of 2015

things of 2015

If 2014 was the year of traveling, 2015 has been the year of author events. I discovered, somewhere along the way that there’s a lot of great book community activity around me and I jumped into the middle of it. Even made a new friend on New Year’s Eve. The other part of this year […]

The 777 Challenge

The 777 Challenge

While I don’t often jump into meme/tag/sorts of things, I came across this at Tracey Neithercott‘s blog and couldn’t resist. Out of curiosity I looked up page 7 of my second novel. And counted 7 lines down in the word doc. Hence the 777 bit of the title, well the thrid 7 is coming. Anyway, […]

Character plotting

Character plotting

I’m not a plotter. Character and dialog I’m completely comfortable with but plot is a struggle for me (hopefully less and less as a I write more and more but for now it’s tough). So, I’m always looking to learn more about plotting or hear how successful authors address plot or read things that give […]
