This is a fun post about the all my cover designs that I toyed around using before going with my final designs I published with. So to refresh your memory... as if I haven't posted this enough, here are the two book covers I went with. So let's start with "Voices: a short story… Continue reading The Covers That Could Have Been.
So, here's the time of the year where I write about all the things that have happened in the past year and reminisce, etc. This year has been WILD. First off, I published TWO BOOKS. What?!? How did I manage to do that, you ask? Well, determination and going broke. But, I'm slowly… Continue reading Coming to the end of 2019
I haven't been talking about my novella that is about to released soon. So I'm going to write an entire blog post about it. This novella started out as a little project for NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) in 2016. As you can tell, I didn't win NaNo since I didn't even make it to… Continue reading Coming Soon: We Don’t Talk About That.
It's been awhile since I've done a WIP Talk and that's probably because I haven't really been writing my WIP! Whoops!

It's been awhile since I've written my last blog post and no, it's not because I've given up on my writing dream. There's been a lot going on in the past month personally, that I haven't had the chance to catch up. I've started the process of getting things ready for publishing my anthology next… Continue reading An Update in May
So, while I'm attempting to put together my anthology, I've begun working on my WIP. I'm doing some research for this story and it involves... watercolors. Last week, I bought a watercolor set because my main character is an artist and one of the mediums she uses is watercolor. I wanted to see for myself… Continue reading WIP Talk: Side Project
First off I'm going to say this: the sun is out!!
What goes in the first chapter? Setting. Introductions. Main character. Set up to story. Hinting at what could be the conflict. You know what else goes into the first chapter? First impressions. The first chapter is the chapter that tells the reader what the story is going to be like. Sometimes it's even the first… Continue reading The First Chapter
