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 […]

Flamin’ Friday: Being Published

So this is my second week as a published author. Sadly, I haven’t had time to really revel in this fact. This week Sean and I took on another child, so getting sleep and wiping runny noses have been my priorities. Nevertheless, Into the Flames is out there, and people have been taking notice! If […]

Introducing–Flaming Friday!

Yeah, I know, it sounds retarded. Josh, bring on the gay fireman jokes. But I’m just so excited about Into the Flames and its ever-approaching publication date. Which is March 2012, by the way. So, in honor of my YA urban fantasy novel and in order to get you equally excited, we are going to […]

Stormtroopers can be fantastical, too.

The Stormtrooper Mentality You probably already know that according to the Myers-Briggs personality test, I’m an ISTJ. Part of my personality is to find comfort in rigid structure, so I find comfort in labeling myself, and I have mentioned my personality traits many times on this site. The part of my personality I’d like to […]

I like music a lot.

It’s been a long week, fellow readers. And for once, it’s not because I’ve been drowning myself in editing and writing. Sunday through Wednesday I was in Lawton with Mara, three of my nieces, and my nephew. We had a good time going to the spray park and eating homemade pizza and going up to the Omniplex (I […]

Into the Flames: Origins

I think Rahab might have looked something like this at age eight or nine: Into the Flames has come a long way from the very small idea that began in my brain as a teenager. In all actuality, Into the Flames was supposed to be a sequel to another book I had written, Born to […]

An Uber Exciting Post That You Should Read

As an editor at Tate, part of my job is to help authors come up with good book titles.  Most of the books come with titles and can remain as is, but a few come to us nameless or, worse, misnamed.  Then we enlist the aid of fellow editors to help us brainstorm appropriate titles […]
