I’ve tried writing a few different stories lately (I try to pop one out every month or so) but now I can’t. Well, I’m sure I could, if it wasn’t for that darn manuscript I still have up—the one I’ve been working on since May, the one I can’t stop writing (awesome right? I know!). Even this post is unexpected because every time I’ve sat down to write one, I end up adding another page to Better Than This (working title). But I’m writing this away from my computer, so it actually has a chance of being written. Yay!
And, while I have some steam going, a few things:
- After posting for IWSG, Leandra Wallace reached out to me, hoping to design a cover for Rozmarie & Josiah, my dark fantasy paranormal romance:
How cool is this? She came to me and offered to design one for FREE. Free! Whoo-hoo! Thank you, Universe, for having my back. And thank you, Leandra, for this amazing cover, and for being clever enough to add that awesome tagline because I definitely wouldn’t have thought of it myself. 🙂
- Seattle was a blast! I left the scorching FL 90-100 degrees weather to be swept away by the North-Western 70 degrees breeze. A-MAZING. Other than a few mishaps involving a van, the caterer and thrown-away vows, everything went off perfectly. Here are a few pics I remembered to snag along with one I pilfered from FB:
Congratulations Catie & Andy!!!!!!!!!!
- So this book I’m writing…
I’m totally pansting it like I normally do, but I have a rough sketch of it in my head and I’m coming to the part—the BIG part—that I know is going to break my heart. Something happened to a character in my last book, Crusade Across Worlds, and I was sobbing when I wrote it. Not that anything terrible is going to happen to these characters, per say, but guys—GUYS—send me tissue packets because this is going to be really hard to write. But I’m going to do it. For you, I’m going to do it.
- Last (but certainly not least) I’m participating in Blood Moon Rising on October 4th. It’s a month-long event on FB for authors of Horror or authors who use horror as a subgenre, which, surprisingly I do. I’ll be taking over that day, so if you’re curious, stop by and read some super short stories, novel segments or learn some crazy cool stuff you never knew about yours truly.
Okay, I think that’s all for now. Virtual high five for writing something besides BTT (like a blog I just paid to renew. Hurray!) Off to write now.
Because, like, what else is there?

You’re sounding so upbeat and positive. Can I borrow some of that good mojo?
Sure! I picked mine up in Seattle, I think 🙂
Lots of awesomeness!
*SO* much awesomeness!
You are very welcome!! Glad to have been able to help. And the wedding looked so pretty! And that pic of the couple is priceless. =)
I know, great pic. Wish I could say it was mine but I totally snagged it from FB. 😉
Your friends look so happy. Woot for weddings!
Leandra did do a great job with the cover. And I’m stoked for your story that you can’t put down. Yay for amazing things!
