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 […]

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 […]

NaNoWriMo 2012: The Halfway Point

We are officially halfway through November, and that means, naturally, we’re halfway through NaNoWriMo. Things are continuing to go well for me. I’m 2k words ahead and plan to keep it that way. I had little bit of a struggle over the weekend to get in my wordcount, mostly because I was at my parents’ […]

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 […]

Flamin’ Friday: updates and excerpts

I’ve been editing a lot of stuff for the Consortium lately, so sadly I don’t have this amazing blog post to make up for not having one at all last week. But while I’m here, I’ll say, the sequel to Taming Fire is coming out next week. You’re read Taming Fire by now, right? You […]

Flamin’ Friday: Meet Rahab Carmichael

By now you probably already know a bit about Rahab Carmichael. You know that she has the same name as a harlot in the Bible, she has stubby blond braids, and she is an extreme introvert. What you may not know was that her parents were originally going to name her Matthew, she wears braids […]

Flamin’ Friday: Who’s Your Favorite Character?

As you may know, my favorite part of a story is strong character development.  What a strange coincidence, then, that my beta readers often comment on how well developed and diverse my characters are. Last month we talked a little bit about how to develop deep characters, and a lot about my delight in the […]
