Writing & the Holidays

Hiya guys! Happy December!


For those of you who celebrate the Holiday season this month, you'll know how difficult it is to fit things like writing or creating in with all the hoopla. In our house, the Christmas season is our favorite time of year, and we love getting into all the fun traditions!


So, because of that, I haven't been writing much. I have made some progress though, which is more than I thought I'd do!

From my 30+ story ideas waiting to be written, I've narrowed down what I want to write to two ideas! Once things settle down a bit, all I have to do is pick one of those two, and get to work!


I'm looking forward to writing again, and I do miss it. The break is worth it, and is probably good for me to take a step back.

Come January, I'll be a writing machine! =D


I hope you are all having a fantastic month, and ending the year on a fantastic note!

"Desi Pere" Now PERMA-FREE!!

Hiya guys!

I was going through my posts today, planning out some for the next few months, and realized I never made a post about this!

I asked for help to get Desi Pere perma-free, and it worked!! You all helped so much with that, and I'm so excited about it! I know I put a post on Facebook thanking people there, but I really wanted to put a thank you up here, as well.

SO! In case you haven't picked up a copy, now's the perfect time! It's free, and a great chance to explore the first book in my Swirling Secrets Trilogy!

Check it out, and please be sure to leave a review if you read it! =D

Desi Pere(Swirling Secrets, #1)


 Desi Pere
~Released: February 2nd, 2016

~Genres: Young Adult, Action, Adventure, Paranormal/Supernatural

(FREE!)

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...


Thank you so much for reading, and if you feel so inclined, please share this freebie with your friends! =D

New Novel!!

Hiya peeps!!


I'm so excited today! I know I have literally been silent for an entire month, but for good reason!

As most of you know, I participated in NaNoWriMo last month. I had several things challenge my writing time, such as a couple weeks of a few pets dying, which took their toll. Once I had composed myself from that, I had a week where I ended up getting sick, bad enough to keep me in bed. I'm not someone who can write/create well when I'm that sick, so I wasn't able to do much in that week. When I was better from that, it was Thanksgiving, and family time.


So really, I wrote this book in three and a half days. Less than four days!! I'm so friggin' proud of myself!!


I won NaNoWriMo (reached the 50K word goal), in less than four days, with more challenges than I would have thought possible. Booya, baby!


If there wasn't any other signs that I'm supposed to do this with my life, that is definitely one for me to hold onto.

Anyway, I'm back, and ready to publish this sucker!

At the moment, Ken hasn't edited it yet (he's sick as well), so I am relying on my own editing skills - hopefully it's not terrible!

Why don't you just wait to publish it til it's been edited? You may be asking...

Well, here's my wacky reasoning: Since I have published my other three books this year on the second of their respective release months, I want to stick with that for this book as well. I think that's an awesome thing to be able to say - four books in a year, all published on the second day of the month. Cool, right? I think so. Besides, I'm an editor as well, so I should be able to edit my own books as well. I simply feel better having fresh editing eyes going over it.


That's another thing I'm still wrapping my head around too, though - I've now published FOUR books this year!!

FOUR books in 2016!!


While I wrote the first book in 2014 and 2015, I WROTE THREE BOOKS this year, alone!

I'm pretty gosh darn proud of myself, tbh. *pats myself on the back*


All this to say, I will be sharing a release post for my new book this afternoon, once I'm sure it's all ready to go and readable on Kindle!

I will be waiting to upload the paperback version, simply because I do have far more formatting with that, before I can publish it. I automatically set up books to be formatting for Kindle from the get-go, so I can basically auto-publish them once they are ready. Makes Kindles easy, but paperbacks are far more work, and can't really be formatted from the start - at least, not the way I write.

SO! Once Ken's edited it, and given me the go-ahead, I will be releasing a paperback version as well!


Excited to share this book with you. Stay tuned!
