Character Spotlight: James Goddard

Character Spotlights are a (bi)weekly Wednesday series where I talk about some of the characters from the novels I’m working on, or have already completed. They’ll just be little snippets of their lives so that you can get to know them a little, and hopefully one day read about them in a published book! For […]

current projects: third edition

Recently, someone asked me if I had a place on my blog where all of my current projects were featured, and I was like, yes, it’s right over–oh dear lord that’s old. A little over a year old, actually, so here we are, back again with a current projects post, third edition! If, for some […]

Monday Musings: Two Things I Will NEVER Do as a Writer

Welcome to Monday Musings, a series where I review books that I read pre-end of 2017, when I started writing wrap-ups, talk about characters or topics that aren’t as relevant, or sometimes a surprise non-bookish thing. I’ll be the first person to admit that I love a lot of tropes. Enemies to friends to lovers? […]

Thursday Thousand: About the Author

Welcome to the Thursday Thousand! Every week, on Thor’s Day, I will be posting a short story (hopefully) written in advance. The only parameter is that it be, at minimum, 1000 words long. It can be any genre, any length beyond that, and even contain mild cliffhangers! Why? Because some of these will turn into […]

Saints at sea is done!

It’s been a little over three months since I started the adventure that is Saints at sea, and it’s done.  It’s wrapped up at 102k words, 28 chapters, and one helluva cliffhanger.  It’s not quite the cliffhanger that the end of the first Saints is (because damn, I’m sorry), but it drops a neat little bomb […]

Does anyone know what I’m doing?

Because I don’t. Like, honestly, truly, what is going on? Let’s go back in time a little.  I know I haven’t been blogging about my writing a lot.  There have been other things—-the weight loss blog, the tea blog (finally!), the wrap-up for June reads, but none of those things are writing things.  Back in […]

I Want to Read ALL THE BOOKS (at the same time)

Alright, I’m not lying when I say I am Rory Gilmore.  You know that scene where Rory’s packing her backpack for school, and she can’t fit all of her books?  This scene.  I’m seriously not even lying–this is me.  When I go away on vacation, I always bring, at minimum, three books, and that’s only if […]

Writing is not always glamorous

Nearly two weeks ago, my last post talked about accidental novels.  I’d introduced these three new characters in Saints at sea, and I had all these grand ideas about a prequel novel for their adventures before we get to Saints at sea.  It was exciting, and I was plugging away at Saints at sea, putting […]
