Hello everyone!! First off, I want to say HAPPY NEW YEAR! I hope you all had an amazing 2018 and will have an even better 2019! Thank you all so much for your continued support and visiting my blog, I appreciate it so much! I really enjoy doing the Indie-Go Interviews with indie authors and writers and hope to keep it going strong in 2019. A special thank you to all of you who have taken time out of your busy schedules to talk with me! I love every single one of our chats!!
Another new thing I am doing at the beginning of the year is a Kickstarter for my new book Sparrows! I was hesitant on doing something that involved asking for money (’cause momma raised me to be proud and not take donations.) But even I have to admit when I need a little help. I also am wanting to launch it out into the world as soon as I can, and I can’t do that without YOUR help! I have some really awesome rewards that I’m giving out that you should really check out. Plus, I’ve decided to not limit where rewards are being shipped, meaning, anyone can donate and receive that reward! (Not just the US.)
If you want to check it out, I would greatly appreciate it! Click here to view it and all the cool stuff you can get! And even if you don’t donate, please share it! This will be ending on Valentines Day (February 14th), because why not.
Thank you everyone again and I hope you have a wonderful New Year!
Hello everyone! If you haven’t heard already from social media, I am now accepting beta readers for the first 10 chapters of Sparrows!! (Possibly all of them if I edit them in time) If you have read the first book, and enjoyed it, please contact me! I would love to hear your thoughts!
Keep in mind, with my beta readers who read the entire manuscript and help me out, I will give those readers a free copy once it’s published! (And maybe even put your name at the end!)
Here is the Synopsis:Sydona Wilder and her fairy Raoul are back as they join the Sparrows rebellion group against the National Fliers Association. Despite the supposed death of the NFA leader, Dr. Malik, the experiments still continue. Her new mission is to eradicate the remaining camps and free her people. However, she quickly learns humans aren’t the only ones who are untrustworthy. As she settles into the group, politics and betrayals are quick to rise and sometimes the only one she can trust is herself.
Hello everyone! Wow, it’s been a bit since I’ve just casually posted on here and not done an interview, huh? Well, I thought I would do a bit of an update on what’s been going on.
My writing has been going really well! I haven’t written much in the past couple days, but it’s still a much faster process than I had anticipated. I’m already on chapter 12 of Sparrows and it’s going in an… interesting direction. I haven’t really outlined anything, since I’m more of a panster, but I think that’s what makes writing really fun for me! I’ve introduced some new characters that I’m still trying to feel out and get to know. I think that’s something I really struggle with. I may need to do some interviews for them too. At the beginning of the story, I have more fairy things, but now it’s kind of going away. I need to find a way to put them back into the story more, cause from what I’ve heard, you guys really love Raoul. I mean, who doesn’t? He’s super lovable. But things are going well and I can’t wait to finish it and start editing to make it even more amazing. Then beta reader time! Wooo!!
Check out these awesome fan arts I’ve gotten recently too!
I’ve been heavily involved in Twitter too. (if you don’t follow me, you should, just sayin’.) I am active everyday on there, doing writing challenges and just having fun with other writers and people. It’s an amazing community that I had no idea even existed. Originally, I met a lot of writers on FB groups, and that’s a majority of people I follow on Twitter now. It’s been such a great platform and I may actually end up weeding out Facebook all together. And also, I WILL be doing a massive giveaway on Twitter once I hit 1,000 followers! *wink wink*
Also, if you didn’t know, I published my book on Barnes and Noble! Yay!! Of course it’s only the eBook version, but if you happen to ask for it at the store for like, a physical copy, it may end up getting sent there. How awesome is that?! It’s also on a bunch of other places that I put in the “Book” tab up at the top. Check ’em out!
Another cool thing is that I recently did a Podcast with Samantha Hendricks about dreams and writing and every little thing in between. We may even end up doing some reoccurring segments talking about dreams and books about dreams/books inspired by dreams. I’ll definitely post it here once it goes up! Sam is so awesome and I hope we get to talk much more!
I am still working on something in particular that I’m VERY excited to share with you all. I’ve discovered a site called Zazzle, and it’s a place to customize things with your logo’s, artworks, or whatever you want. I have been going crazy with all the different merch I can do for Fliers! Like keychains, hats, mousepads, cups, bottle openers, magnets, like SO MUCH STUFF. All of course Fliers related! I’m thinking I will launch it on November 1st. 😀
Another awesome thing, I do have my cover art done for Sparrows already! But, it will be a little while before I show it off! May make changes to it. We’ll see!
Other than that, I’m still doing the freelancing graphic design job for Del Webb as well as my FT job at the resort. It’s been pretty great! I definitely feel like sometimes I am doing too much, but none if it really feels like work, which is what it’s supposed to be like, right?
Well, that’s about all that’s going on with me lately! I’ll talk to you guys again soon! ##
