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 […]

Fairytales, or, I love Aladdin

So last week was my birthday, and my husband, the wonderful and thoughtful planning person that he is, bought me a gift off my Amazon wish list the day before my birthday. Unwittingly he purchased the thing I wanted the most, a blue-ray version of Aladdin. Aladdin is my favorite Disney princess movie because Aladdin is […]

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 […]

How Draft2Digital Can Help You

I told you yesterday about how my husband has spent pretty much all of his free time for months working on Draft2Digital’s website. You might be surprised, then, to find out that until the website went live, I was not very familiar with it. I recognized the logo, of course, and Sean had shown off […]

Draft2Digital Beta Release!

Yesterday Draft2Digital launched the beta version of its website, and I want to talk to you a little bit about it. What is Draft2Digital? […]

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 […]

Zorya What?

Apparently I should write novellas more often. It only took me a month to write one, as opposed to the two plus years it takes me to not finish a novel. Do you remember spaceship story I told Aaron I wanted to write in my last post? Yeah, well, I wrote it. It’s of course […]

Spaceships and Vampires

It’s been a slightly crazy week in terms of where my mind has been. After a weekend of finishing the novel The Anubis Gates by Tim Powers and watching some random television, I started Monday with every intention of delving back into City of Orphans and generating some serious word count. I go to the […]

A Curse upon You, Jing Dong Ma!

It has been almost twelve hundred years since Jing Dong Ma brought the magic down from the mountains. It is considered a great blessing to be able to hold this magic, to practice wielding its power. But Natalie Lowry sees it only as a curse. While the magic threatens to tear the nations of Pocatello apart, Natalie […]
