Guess what? I FINALLY finished editing Rose's Wrath! First, that means I can send it to a professional editor and have them fine-tune the novel for me. While I think I've found one, I'm most definitely open to other affordable editors you might know! So feel free to leave a comment. Second, you may be… Continue reading Editor Time! Plus a Second Cover Reveal? And Title Reveal?
No, this is not going to be a writing tip, poem, or exclusive excerpt, unfortunately. Life has gotten the better of me and so nearly a month has passed since my last post! My goal for the next few months is to post twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Will that happen? We'll see.… Continue reading Summer Update
To be honest, I had never really thought about the question asked in the title. Why do I write? More importantly: Why does anyone write? Seriously, what drives writers/authors to create a world and people within 400 pages? I don't really know, but here are three reasons why I write.

If you've taken a look at Crown of Roses on Goodreads, you'll know that it is supposed to be published in July of this year. I have never published any of my stories before so this has been a new and exciting journey for me. Unfortunately, I've extended my editing process quite a bit, and… Continue reading Publishing Fears and Why I’m Moving My Publication Date Back
Verre is probably my favorite character in Crown of Roses. She's someone who is dark, violent, but also has a human side that is surprising to some. This chapter is in her POV, so hopefully you enjoy! It was time. While the planning had taken two weeks, the royal ball had offered the perfect occasion.… Continue reading Crown of Roses: Chapter Two Excerpt
A friend of mine from Goodreads has started a blog/website! She could use some love and support, so please do take a look! She is also a talented writer, one who is actually going to soon be a published author. So, as I’ve said, please take a look at her new website!

These past few months have been rough. Between school, work, and trying to fit in a social life, reading has become practically nonexistent. I find this sad, as reading used to always be what cheered me up. So, what happened? First, I'm just too busy. I never thought I'd ever say that, but it's true.… Continue reading Why I’ve Lost My Interest in Reading
I'll be honest, I'm terrible when it comes to organizing my time and life. I let the things I care about the most get pushed to the side in my zealous pursuit of success in life. But, success isn't always everything. Far too many times I've missed out on a wonderful memory because I wasn't… Continue reading Prioritizing Writing Despite Stress and Life
