Flamin’ Friday: A bit of this and a pinch of that

Today is Friday, so it stands to reason that we would be having a little Flamin’ Friday over here at Stormy Night Publishing. So, you ask, what have I been doing since I wrote “The End” on my soon-to-be-published novel? Well, mostly I’ve been basking in the joy of an almost-completed project and pestering everybody […]

El Fin

I feel this moment deserves a blog post. I finished writing Into the Flames! Now, I know it’s not done. It still has a lot of feedback from beta readers and editors to be processed. Sean has already told me of some problem areas that need my attention. But still, I finished it! This is […]

Flamin’ Friday: Grover Cleveland Boarding School

For this week’s Flamin’ Friday, we’re going to look at the main setting for each of the books: Grover Cleveland Boarding School.

Flamin’ Friday: the series/welcome to NaNoWriMo!

So here I am, writing a blog post about NaNoWriMo instead of actually writing on my nano novel. Yes, readers, procrastination abounds when it comes to writing. I’m usually great at getting things done, but when it comes to the thing I enjoy the most, I put it off like…I don’t know…a stripper puts off […]

Flamin’ Friday: Movin’ Right Along

I have to admit folks, that there were about three weeks there where I didn’t even look at Into the Flames. Or I would open the document and wait for it to load only to get distracted again. My life has been pretty hectic recently, but after things calmed down a little (just a little, […]
