An Incredible Journey

Safe to say, that being long listed for an award has sunk in now. I was on a total high when I wrote my last blog post, and while I’m still on a high, I’m not so giddy. But, hey – we’re all crazy really, right? Even if I go no further, it’s been an…

For The Love of Reading #TheQ4Q

Recently, something on Twitter caught my eye. A true story about a young woman whose life had taken an utterly terrifying and brutal turn when she was just eighteen years old. NAalley – a fantastic site about everything New Adult, put their heads together to figure out a way to help and they came up…

Physical books – do we need them?

The invention of the eReader is, without a doubt, one of my favorite inventions ever. I’ve never been one to keep books. I wanted to, but as my husband was in the army and we moved around often, lugging boxes of books was never an option. I’d buy or borrow them, read, and then return…

A peek at my WIP ‘Finding Immortal’ and my battle with ‘the pit’

For the last few days I’ve been in a funk. You know that point where you can no longer form a coherent sentence? Where any words you string together are a bit crap, or even a lot crap. And even those times where you seem to be able to kill it when writing dialogue but…

My 2014 in review. I owe you guys a big fat thank you.

I’ve seen a few of these posts around so thought I’d add mine to the mix. My blog has only been running since June, so I’m pleased with the numbers. Actually, I’m over the moon. I think we’ve all come to realize by now that I waffle on about random nothingness most of the time…

Oh Me, Oh My, It’s Alive!

It seems a long time ago that I first put pen to paper and started to scribble in a notebook. Said notebook then got found by my very artistic children and pages started to be pulled. Before I knew it, my nice thick notebook was reduced to a few scribbled upon pages and not much…

Here Come the Nerves

Vomit keeps rising in my throat. Maybe that’s a SLIGHT exaggeration, but I am definitely queasy right now. As I type this post, it’s 23.55pm on the 19th of December. That means Fractured Immortal is 24 hours and 5 minutes away from being released. It’s the first time I have ever put a book out…

Sit up and Pay Attention.

I am being completely serious with the title of my blog post. It’s not a play on words and it’s not a joke. For the past several months I have been in a lot of pain in my back and neck. I’m one of those ‘see the worst’ kind of people. I never used to…
