To See Clearly: An Excerpt

It’s been almost a year since I published GCA2: Diving In. I’ve been working on the third installment on and off since then, and I’d like to say that I’m close to publishing it as well, but alas. That would be a lie. Id like to tell you that I haven’t posted on this blog […]

On Publishing and Rejuvenation

So Diving In came out this summer. It was a great feeling, to finally see this book that I worked on for almost a year finally out there in the hands of the readers. I thought, I better get a start on the third book so I can get it out next year! And this […]

Tinkering with Stories

For the past three months I’ve been working on To See Clearly, the third installment in my Grover Cleveland Academy series. Unfortunately, I haven’t made as much progress as I’d hoped I would by now, and I’m getting discouraged. It almost makes me not want to write at all. But not writing makes me feel […]

Thank You

My second novel is out in the world, and I want to thank everyone who has already taken the time to buy it and read it. Last year when my first novel was published, I hadn’t even formed the plot for Diving In–didn’t even think I would write a direct sequel. But now here it […]

Finishing Goals and Making New Ones

So this month I am going to finish the second draft of my second novel in the Grover Cleveland Academy Series (why can’t it just have a name already?!?!?!?!). I’ve had the end in sight for about a week now, and I’m so excited that I can’t help thinking that everything that I want to […]

The Next Big Thing

Okay, so both Joshua Unruh and Courtney Cantrell tagged me to do this, so I guess I can’t ignore it. The point is to talk about the next writing project that you are working on. Go to the links above to see how Josh and Courtney answered the questions to “The Next Big Thing,” and […]

NaNoWriMo 2012: The End of the Road

That’s right, folks. I wrote 50,000 words in one month. I dedicated all of November to writing out my second Grover Cleveland novel, no matter how bad it sounded in type. It was certainly a bumpy road. There were some days when I would write over four thousand words, and some days when I couldn’t […]

NaNoWriMo 2012: The Plot Thickens

We are now a week into NaNoWriMo, and so far I am pleasantly surprised with myself. I got together with some writer friends on Halloween to usher in the new month. They must have inspired me a lot, because I started out strong with over 1500 words in the first hour and a half of November […]

Into the Flames: the aftermath

I’m sure you’ve all heard by now that I have a novel published. It is an interesting feeling, having other people read something I’ve worked so hard on for so long. Fortunately though, everyone seems to like it. If you for some crazy reason haven’t gotten around to reading it yet, you can buy it […]
