Balancing Writing & Life

Hiya guys! Hope you had a great Leap Day! =)

I wanted to write a post, but wasn't quite sure what to say. At the moment, I don't have much to update, I don't have any of my topic posts ready, and I'm kinda dull today, tbh - blogging days wear me out. So I thought about that, how life and writing both wear me out, constantly competing for my attention.

How do you balance writing & life? This applies to authors, general writers, poets, lyricists, bloggers, and journalists - writing is writing. How do you balance it? Do you find it difficult to fit writing into the rest of your life?

Juggling a hectic home-life with starting two small businesses from scratch, makes writing difficult. I know I'm not the only one with this struggle, and a lot of the balancing takes time. Learning how to achieve a level of harmony & organization that allows writing time to open up is key, but that doesn't mean it's easy, or happens quickly.

How have you learned to make it work?

Spotify Author Playlist

Hiya! I'm excited today, because I finally made a Spotify Playlist, specifically for my general writing! Most of the music on this playlist is upbeat, inspiring, and meant to get me motivated & writing! There are songs from all kinds of artists, genres, and time periods. I'll be adding music to it continuously, so please feel free to follow it, and enjoy some great tunes!

If you have songs you think would go well with this playlist, feel free to let me know in the comments or PM me! Thanks!

Starting Book Two!!

So excited!! I've officially started on Swirling Secrets, Book 2! =D

I've been working on it for a little while, and getting everything set up. Figuring out which direction I wanted this story to go has taken a little while, but I've decided everything I can, and am ready to write! Whoot!

Feels so good to be writing again. I'm not much of an outliner or planner when it comes to writing novels, so it's good to be past that stage of madness for this book.

I'm so excited! I just can't hide it! Gonna have that song in my head for a week! haha

Oh my gosh guys, I'm floating right now!! Desi Pere just received it's first review, and it was amazing!!

Fellow author Jessica Frances left a 4 star review, and considering the newness of the book & my position as an author, it couldn't have been much better.

I was so nervous as to how it would be received, and while I'm positive there will be people who dislike it and leave negative reviews, this was a wonderful start. On a day where I'm sick in bed, this has lifted my spirits so much.

So much thanks to Jessica - I am truly honored.

For anyone who doesn't know, she is one of my author inspirations, and her Taken trilogy is one of my favorite series. The fact my first ever review as an author is from her is such a blessing.

Good day today, in our house! =D

Paperback Copies!

Hiya guys! How are you? Having an awesome weekend, hopefully.

So, I've had quite a few people ask me the past couple of weeks, when Desi Pere will be available in paperback form. Some of you don't have Kindles, others want signed copies (which still blows my mind...), and others just want hard copies (again, mind-blowing...). The people asking directly have actually been pretty insistent, which is awesome!

I'm completely humbled and honored by your persistence and amazing desire to have a copy of my book - thank you!!

I figured a post addressing the questions would be helpful, so, here it is! =) I have added a paperback version of Desi Pere via CreateSpace!! I'm so excited, I can't wait to see the book in print, and have it in my hands. Just, wow.

I'm finishing up the final touches, getting the cover art set, and should have it ready this week. I'll be sure to let you guys know when it's available in print version!

Whoot! =D

Tour Kickoff!!

Hiya guys!! Ok, so this tour actually started on Feb 1st, with the release of Desi Pere. However, I basically collapsed the past two days, getting my head back on straight. So, I'm post today, announcing the kick-off of my Desi Pere Tour! =D

Now, there aren't a ton of people signed up, which is totally fine. The few stops scheduled sound awesome, and I can't wait to see what people think of this book! One of the stops is even featuring a review - eek!! =D

So, here we go!

 Desi Pere Tour Kickoff!

Swirling Secrets, #1

~Released: February 1st, 2016

~Length: 444 Pages

~Genres: Young Adult, Paranormal

Magnhild, is a freak. From her name, right down to the naturally bizarre visage she can't seem to get rid of- she's an odd duck. 

Her life has taken a swirling plunge into the drain the past few months, but it's nothing compared to what's coming. All she wants is to finish school, and start over somewhere fun. Fate, has other plans. 

Enter the Desi Pere underground organization, and three of it's loyal members: They've enlisted Magnhild's cooperation, whether she likes it or not. They mean to exploit her superhuman gifts, ones she didn't think anyone knew about. Overnight, she's dragged into a world, and a war, the normal world doesn't even know exist. The bait: reuniting her with her mother, who's supposed to be dead. 

Danger, confusion, deception, and self-loathing fog each decision Magnhild faces. She desperately hopes to find her mother, and bring meaning to her past of abuse and isolation. 

Will she see through the web society has spun around her, or fall captive to century-old lies? In her search for the truth, she discovers she cannot find what she seeks, without first becoming herself, accepting her inner strength, and embracing her bizarre life...
