Productive Days

I don't want to jinx it, but these have been some hella productive days, and I think I know what I owe it to: reading. I'm more inspired than ever to finish Vacancy, and it's got to be because I'm into someone else's book right now. The genre is totally different than what I'm writing,… Continue reading Productive Days

October Mini Plotting

Demon Protection Program - working title I've been setting aside a little pocket of time every day to brainstorm a new project. It's nowhere near the drafting stage, it's just a huge host of characters, some raunchy situational comedy, and a vague idea about the apocalypse, but it's got potential! I've been watching New Girl,… Continue reading October Mini Plotting

Progress Update: The Willful Inheritor

The third and final book of The Vacancy Series is nearing completion. I'm pretty far behind my own timeline (disappointed in myself there), but it will be out before year's end, so that's something! I'm getting some feedback from beta readers on the first 2/3rds of the book, and I just worked out most of… Continue reading Progress Update: The Willful Inheritor

On the run from a deranged warlock and transforming into a mysterious being herself, Wren is thrown into the world of the ensorcelled, creatures who look human but can perform necromancy, control the elements, and… Continue reading Creatures and Covens – 5 More Episodes and New Artwork

Creatures and Covens is Coming to Kindle Vella Next Week

The Amazonians have made the announcement--Kindle Vella goes live "next week" (because giving us an exact date would be way too helpful), so I've taken the plunge and have the first five episodes of my super-secret-except-not-really, paranormal romance Creatures and Covens uploaded and in review! God, just read that blurb. And look at those tags.… Continue reading Creatures and Covens is Coming to Kindle Vella Next Week

Trying Out Kindle Vella

If you caught my newsletter in June, you know I'm planning on putting some work up on Kindle Vella. It's an experiment, as it will be for all the authors who use it since the platform isn't even out yet. Not that serialized reading platforms, or even paid ones, are new, but this will be… Continue reading Trying Out Kindle Vella

There are plenty of outliers, including modern worlds where magic is the norm, or alternate histories where magic… Continue reading (Sub)Urban Fantasy
