A Year of the Pandemic and A Year of Self Publishing

The Korinniad came out February 1st, 2020. That day was so full of excitement that I thought I was going to die from how the anxiety layered atop the elation like a heart attack lasagna. Now, releasing a book is much easier and more joyous, but back then I had no idea if I would… Continue reading A Year of the Pandemic and A Year of Self Publishing

Looking for ARC Reviewers for The Weary Traveler

We're less than a week away from release, and now's the part where I really have to buckle down on promotion aka the worst part. The text is all done, well in advance this time which feels quite weird, so now I need to figure out how to get people to read it. I've got… Continue reading Looking for ARC Reviewers for The Weary Traveler

Mood Boards – The Characters from Vacancy

I finished tweaking all the mood boards for the core characters in The Vacancy Series, so I figured I'd throw them up in one big post for funsies. All put together on Canva.com with the free images there. Lorelei Conrad Ziah Grier Hana Ren

How To Read eBooks Without An eReader

I'm writing this post because my dear mother has said on multiple occasions that she will "just have to get a Kindle" when my next book comes out as electronic only. (The Weary Traveler won't be in paperback, just a heads up!) It's very sweet on her part, but objectively untrue, so I figured I'd… Continue reading How To Read eBooks Without An eReader

First Live Newsletter When?

I didn't think about the fact I'd scheduled my first newsletter to go out on Inauguration Day, but that's what happened, and so yesterday it went live. Despite it being not exactly a spend-your-time-checking-emails kinda day, I still feel like it was successful, and now I'm way more confident with the whole process than I… Continue reading First Live Newsletter When?

Cover Reveal: The Weary Traveler (Vacancy Book One)

I needed a pick me up for the end of the year, and for me that is sharing with you, Dear Reader, the upcoming, long-awaited (by me), first in my first series, cover of The Weary Traveler. As always, she was done by the talented and wonderful Anna at EerilyFair Design, and I couldn't be… Continue reading Cover Reveal: The Weary Traveler (Vacancy Book One)

Where Did Vacancy Go?

This is not a question that anyone is probably asking, but just in case I wanted to put this out there: I privatized all my Vacancy posts. The written web serial is no more in anticipation of the release of The Vacancy Series of novels I'll be publishing in 2021. There are a few reasons… Continue reading Where Did Vacancy Go?

Well, December’s Here, And I Failed

But only by a little. 43,785 - That's how many words I ended up either revising, rewriting, or straight up newly drafted during November. I'm taking the old Vacancy serial and revamping it for a trilogy of novels and thought I'd use NaNo to help track my progress. I didn't take it as seriously as… Continue reading Well, December’s Here, And I Failed

Happy Cyber Monday, Maybe Buy A Book?

From what I understand, book sales traditionally fall into the toilet around the holidays, or at least ebook and self-published book sales do. That makes sense: people are buying things for others, we don't typically give digital gifts, and self-published stuff is usually too genre-heavy and niche to give as a present anyway. None of… Continue reading Happy Cyber Monday, Maybe Buy A Book?
