Something That Makes Me Smile

All writers have those down weeks…

  • You haven’t received any fan mail in awhile.
  • Your current project isn’t going as you wished.
  • A couple of rejection letters popped into your email box.
  • You get a hater review on Amazon or iTunes.

This is not one of those weeks because I’ve had some really good things happen recently…

  • Two short stories have been published.
    *Holy Rites, is now available in thePodioracket publication, Glimpses
    *Wide Awake, is now available in the Flying Island Press publication, Pieces of Eight, Autism Acceptance.
  • I’ve made some real progress on four major projects I’m working on right now.
  • I’ve received a lot of recent listener/reader mail lately – which I absolutely love. How cool to have people talk about my characters and obsess about them the way I do! It’s absolutely the radest thing ever.
  • I’m on the home stretch of my 4th musical romance book, Undecided.
  • Night’s Knights has stayed up at #1 in the SciFi FREE Kindle list for a week, #2 in Horror/Ghosts, and hit #46 in the overall Kindle list. (I was happy to just hit under the 100 mark.)

And speaking of Night’s Knights, here is something that makes me smile. Never in a million years did I think people would be reading my books across the world, let alone be able to buy them in many different countries. Check out this graphic with my book displayed in several different countries on the various Amazon sites.


Thank you all for your continued support!
Now, back to writing.


Dusk’s Warriors– An Update

So you know how I was sure I’d finish Night’s Knights II the beginning of 2010 and have it podcast by summer? Not happening. I was all done… had it sewn all up and then I realized… It was too clean. Too pretty. Too nice and tidy. Forget that! There needs to be a mess and by mess I mean… knock out, drag out, mess everyone up, kick everyone’s butt… scar charries for life kinda fight. Jespa started it. Did you expect anything less?

Tonight’s all about DW. Editing, rewriting, and getting some of these messy chapters sewn up just a little. Not all the way… but so you can see a little stitching and a lot of puss-filled goodness. 🙂
