Getting closer to publishing day

By | 2018-05-21T07:26:45+00:00 May 21st, 2018|Books|

It's been a whirlwind over here, getting ready for the 'big day.' We ordered proofs a few weeks ago, and have been painstakingly going through every word, every comma, looking for typos and things that are missing or need adjustment. (Don't worry, I'm not the one looking at punctuation. It's not my forte and I know [...]

Renegade Skyfarer Cover Reveal!

Look at the beauty of this cover! Know what I see? Hours of labor of love by my team. The promise of adventure within the pages. The beginning of an epic steampunk fantasy series. It's all that, and so much more! I hope y'all will love this book as much as I and my beta [...]

Cover reveal soon!

Guys. I can't wait. I'm changing the date for the cover reveal. It was originally going to be May 18, but that's too far away. May 1. That's so much sooner, and then I can share the beauty of this cover, my pre-order Kindle link will be live, and we'll begin the eight week countdown [...]

Deadlines

By | 2018-04-05T16:32:50+00:00 April 5th, 2018|Books|

I love deadlines. (No, seriously.) I love having a set goal for me to reach to, to struggle, to fight, to achieve. It keeps a fire lit under me and keeps me honed in and focused. No deadline? No productivity. No productivity? No books. What's difficult about being an indie author with self-set deadlines? No [...]

Book covers, line edits, and sketches, oh my!

To my great excitement and glee, we had a photo shoot in New York a week ago. We now have a slew of awesome pictures that we're going to use for the book covers of our series, and I cannot wait until I get to share everything with y'all! Our model did for Ben did [...]

Amber Eyes book review

By | 2018-01-22T17:43:27+00:00 February 3rd, 2018|Blog|

So I took a two day break from pre-writing Void Born and used that time to read Amber Eyes by S.D. Grimm. Oh my goodness, y'all, it took so much self-control to put it down last night so I could sleep. It was so. good. When there's solid characters with their own secrets and motives [...]

A chapter closes

By | 2017-12-28T12:30:36+00:00 December 28th, 2017|Blog|

How is it possible that 2017 is almost over? It feels like yesterday was October, and before that it was Realm Makers. Time is flying by, and somehow I need to keep up! Confession time. Seriously now. With lines like that, who can't love Hook? And really now, that line is applicable to writers [...]

And the cogs keep turning…

It's been far too long since I've updated my progress on Renegade Skyfarer! Humblest apologies. **bows low** This may or may not have been my actual expression when I checked my email. Thankfully, no cameras were present to document my actual reaction. Yesterday evening started up the creative machine again. I got my [...]

Summoner blog tour

By | 2017-09-06T21:28:39+00:00 September 6th, 2017|Blog|

Blog Tour Schedule I need to preface this post with a warning: I stayed up until 2 am to finish reading the "one chapter" of Summoner that I started at 10 pm, and if my post is slightly incoherent, that is why. This was such an amazing read. Truly, I started it with the honest [...]

White Dawn Blog Tour

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 [...]
