I have to do a little jig about this. Sara has completed the Black Tiger trilogy! And it is phenomenal. Signed book giveaway! Have you read Black Tiger and Ashen City yet? If you have, then you know what I'm talking about when I say phenomenal. If you haven't yet read them, you have to [...]

World building

Over the course of the last year, I've had quite a few people ask me about this story world of Terrene. Where did it come from? How did we get the ideas for it? How does one build a magic system from scratch? Why are our dragons different than the traditional dragon? What's an airship [...]

Guys, you have no idea how excited over this I am. Meet Jamie Foley.   Jamie is the one who introduced the idea of being an author to me. For the longest time, I believed that a Mommy of little kids couldn't write--that she'd have to wait til all the kids are in college to [...]

Ashen City Blog Tour

I need to preface this post with the simple statement that I have been dying for Ashen City to come out officially. After having the honor of beta reading, I've been waiting on pins and needles for when I could finally have this book on my shelf, alongside Black Tiger, and I am beyond excited [...]

Building up steam

Nearly every week I tell myself that this is the week that I'll get some blog posts done. This is the week that I'll catch up on all the little things I want to get done. ...and every week passes by, and I check off the chapters I've completed, and shake my head at the [...]

Getting closer!

I have only a handful of chapters of Betrayal by Blood to edit. Break out the dark chocolate and celebrate with me! Doesn't that look amazing? Why, yes. Yes, it does. Now, here's the thing, being this close to completion. I want fresh eyes to read through it. Folks who can commit to [...]

Happy New Year!

I love the theoretical simplicity of January. It's the month after holidays, travel, family, friends, food, insane busyness. It's supposed to be the easy month in the year. Right? Wrong. Our January calendar has filled so quickly that I'm now looking forward to February to get my post-holiday breather! Game days, sick days, tournaments (for [...]

I am excited for when book two of the Soul Chronicles comes out! Book one, Tainted, introduced Stephen and Kat, two individuals who are broken in their own ways, each with their own reasons for their trust issues. Circumstances force them to work together to unravel the truth of deaths, powers and how everything is [...]

Book review for Realmscapes

I enjoyed this book. It's not in my top favorites, but it was well worth the money and the read. Several stories whetted my appetite for that author, and now I'm going to be looking for more that they've written, as I've enjoyed their prose and subject matter. Other short stories were fun and entertaining, [...]
