Pocket Watch Character Spotlight Blog Hop

So one of my favorite writing groups is doing a blog hop today about our favorite characters. You should check them out too! There’s Sarah who will talk about her most adorably broken Nate. Jeanne and her Pony, a centaur of a different color. Amelia and her original monster, Theron, and his human lover, Alex. And […]

A crumbled Hunter’s Moon

“Did you know that Pittsburgh has more bridges than Venice, and more stairs than San Francisco?” Why did I pick the opening sentence as the one to sum up the last story? Because the entire piece hinges on what Giorgios knows that you don’t. Which is quite a bit. And yes, I know common wisdom […]

We do it to ourselves, ladies

I like writing characters. That sounds weird, but I like watching characters grow and change. Mina in The Hunted is not Mina in Hunter’s Moon. Oh, she’s still got a temper, and she has a few odd quirks about Speakers, but she’s in a very different place mentally and emotionally. So, I had a lot […]

New Challenge

Publishing Day has come and gone. Now the challenging part starts. Expanding my empire. The last of my stories will be coming off of KDP select and disseminated across the interwebs. I’ll be everywhere soon. All this will be happening as I format the omnibus edition. For an added challenge, I’ve decided to release through […]

Hunter’s Moon

It’s here! It’s here!   The seventh and final story in the Uncommon Animals series. Mina and Matty finally found the home they always wanted. They’ve settled into a routine of normalcy, working by day, hunting demons at night. But their lives are about to get complicated. The Tribes want them back, and they aren’t […]

Proofreading and creating covers is the stressful part of self-publishing.” He laughed. “I’d think […]

FREE STUFF!

AHAHAHAHAHA!!!! Go here, and get free stories! Or here! Or here! You can get the first six Uncommon Animals stories for free this week. The grand finale, Hunter’s Moon will be released this Sunday for $0.99 on Amazon. But before you snag that, you can (and should!), get caught up on the first six stories… […]

Wait… what?

So last night, my newest proofreader finished Hunter’s Moon. All that’s left to do is read it out loud to the husband. Yes, I even wrote the blurb! The end is in sight. Yes, I need to make the cover for the anthology, but I picked an easy one. And there’s minimal formatting and NO […]

Eleven days and counting

Publishing Day is looming. I’ve proofread four out the six previously published stories. My cover is done. My blurb is not written (I hate them). My finale is mostly proofread. My promo is prepped. I’m feeling a touch overwhelmed, I admit. But part of that is the end of the school year too. Picnics, field […]
