I love Kickstarter (and a Bound by Bloodsong update)

I just backed Candace Osmond's Omnibus for Dark Tides. I've never read her books or even heard of her, but her campaign totally sucked me in. I mean, look at the reward tiers! A mystery box?! A Funko Pop doll?! It was a really hard choice, but I went with the mystery...

Mind. Blown.

My mind is absolutely blown that Brandon Sanderson has raised over $20 million on Kickstarter and 12,698 people have paid $500 for four books (hardcover, ebook, and audio) and 8 book boxes. Mind. Blown. Meanwhile, I'm launching my own Kickstarter later this month (I...

Achievements Unlocked! And Book Drop!

I hit a milestone overnight! Bound by Bloodsong has over 250 pre-orders! That's way more than I've had on any of my books, and it's a HUGE deal! I mean, I very rarely pre-order books, but when I do, it's because I absolutely love a book or an author, so thank you guys...

News!

First up, it's like I remembered I have a website! lol I seriously need to get better at updating this thing. It's been almost a year, and I had a new book release over the summer! And I have a new release this month! It's sort of a prequel to A Void of Magic, but...

    I love it when my books get extra attention from a retailer. The Shadow Reader is a Barnes & Noble's FREE eBOOK FAVORITES this week! Yes, that means you can read it for free. (Psst: you can also find it free everywhere else this week!) If you know...

I Don’t Like Dystopian Novels

It took me forever to read The Hunger Games. I checked it out from the library probably three or four times. I'd read the first page or two, get bored or distressed, and set it down. Little did I know I needed to make it to page ten to get hooked. lol But The Hunger...

Shades of Allegiance and Fast Reader

Shades of Allegiance is here! Finally! It's only been four years, two months, and twenty-two days since my last book, but let's not dwell on that. Let's celebrate the fact that Ash and Rip are back, and they are freaking awesome in this book. You should read. One of...

A Deleted Scene and 11 Days to go

A deleted scene! This was going to be the opening scene to Shades of Allegiance. I wrote it years ago, and it stayed in the book all the through beta readings and even went to my editor. I like the scene, but it didn't set up the book quite right, and after some deep...

Blueberry Muffins

Forgive me for a post that's totally unrelated to writing. My boys are in 4th grade. They're allowed to bring a snack to school. A few years ago, I started making blueberry muffins to send with them. I figured making them myself was better than buying them, and...

Should I write more Science Fiction? Or get back to Urban Fantasy?

54 days until Shades of Allegiance! I can't wait for you guys to read this. I think it might be your favorite Shades book! I love so much about it. I'm still waiting on a few last comments from my editor, then it's on to the copy editor, then proofreading, then I have...

One of my few auto-buy authors

I know I'm a sci-fi and fantasy romance author, but I also read a wee bit of historical romance on occasion. One of those occasions is when Joanna Bourne releases a new book. Joanna Bourne. Man! I don't know whether to love her or hate her. Okay. I do know. I love...

Progress

It's been a month since my pacemaker surgery, and I finally feel like I'm getting things under control. Most days, I've been writing first thing. This is huge because I've barely written at all these last two months. I have an extreme amount of mental clutter. Much of...

WARW (on a Thursday): A Breath of Fire

I finally finished A Breath of Fire. The book has been out for around three months. It took me a few weeks to get started reading it, but I was immediately hooked. I love this book just as much as the first one, A Promise of Fire. The book picks up soon after the...

Cyborg Sandy

Hey guys! Sorry I've been totally silent for a while. It's been an interesting and sort of frustrating few months. Last week, I got a pacemaker. Yep. My heart has issues. Apparently, when I faint, my heart stops beating for around ten seconds. Or maybe I faint because...

WARW: Sleeping Queens

(WARW (Write a Review Wednesday) is something I started because I have a habit of putting off writing reviews. As an author, I know how important reviews are for the success of a book, so I’m making a concerted effort to write at least one review a week. Reviews might...
