I realize it's been awhile since I updated this blog. Life has been hectic but I've still been working here and there on the third and final book of the Cierstos Chronicles. I am happy to report it is now off with the editor and I'm on the hunt for cover art. My hope is to have it published in the next 4 weeks. I've reduced the prices on my other 3 books to $1.99 in celebration.
I'll come back to give updates. Thanks for your patience :)
It's almost time. The Wild Lands, Cierstos Chronicles Book 2 is finally up for pre-order on Amazon.
Having fled Fayodale, Kathayr and Asher settle into a peaceful life with their son Driscol, and the old mage Thanos. Strange foreigners threaten their solitude and bring revelations of Soma to the family.
Journey with them as they are pushed further away from Fayodale, and into new civilizations, while trying to escape the reach of a vengeful King.
Well here it is. The end of November and the wrapping up of NaNoWriMo. Today I have officially completed the challenge and went over 50,000 words. The novel itself is coming to an end and I think I'll complete the rough draft in the next week. Then I can move back to book two of the Cierstos Chronicles and really polish it up and get it ready for publishing.
It's NaNoWriMo! Yes, I'm taking advantage of the challenge to work on the third follow up book for Monsoon Reign. One week and over 14,000 words into it and it's going well. It feels so wonderful to be back to writing once again. For anyone who's ever suffered from anxiety and panic attacks maybe you'll understand, but it was impossible for me to do much but curl into a ball and sleep for the past few months. Now that the new meds have kicked in and side effects have declined I'm feeling much m
Here it is, cover and blurb. Publishing date is set for August 15th. You can pre order through smashwords at the sale price of $2.99. After that it goes up to $3.99.

I've been very lax in posting on this blog in recent months and for that I apologize. In truth I've been lax in working on any writing. I have plenty of excuses but no good ones. I've had Valedrun finished and ready for publishing for several months, yet it sits gathering dust and in need of cover art.
To be honest this past year and a half has been rough. Too much death and anxiety, which leads to panic attacks and an inability to feel creative. But I'm putting it behind me and mov
April was a mini challenge with Camp NaNoWriMo. I took advantage of the event to finish up the second book for the Cierstos Chronicles and get a good start on book three. I've also decided I'm going to go with self publishing the book I wrote during the first NaNoWriMo event I took part in. I've tentatively titled it The Ruling of Valedrun but will post the official title and reveal the cover at a later date.
Anyway, look what I won for all my time and effort :)
I finally finished my first draft of Soma two days ago. I have so many more ideas for the story but they really will fit better in the third and hopefully final book for The Cierstos Chronicles.
So yesterday I decided to enjoy the gloomy, rainy day with a craft.
I was feeling a little homesick for Michigan. The red thing is supposed to be a heart, marking my home town. I plan on trimming it down so it looks more like a heart but thought I'd share this picture anyway. Wh
Today marks the start of Camp NaNoWriMo. I decided to go for it and take part. I set my word count limit pretty small, 10,000 words for the month but hope to exceed that. I'm off to a great start so far with over 1300 words for today. I'm using the challenge to hopefully FINALLY finish book two of Cierstos Chronicles.
Here's a glimpse of some pics that have inspired the places I'm describing in this book. You can see more pics that inspire my writing at my pinterest page. See link o
As promised, here's the first chapter of my current work in progress. Tentatively titled Soma, it's the follow up for Monsoon Reign.

Kathayr finished watering the last row of vegetables in the small garden and wiped the back of her dirty hand over her sweaty brow. She caught a glimpse of the mark on her left palm. A seven leaf clover surrounded with intricate scrollwork of knots that circled it. The sight often caused her stomach to turn with memories of the past
Ok, so Amtrak is offering something pretty awesome. Writer's residency's.
So basically they're accepting applications from writers and will select 24 winners. Those lucky winners get a free ride, complete with sleeper car for one, on a 2-5 day trip. They'll have a place to write while watching the sights of our country rolling by.
I haven't decided yet if I want to try for it, all those pesky responsibilities come to mind. You know, being a mom, wife etc... But the gypsy spirit in me
Now that I'm done with The Ruling of Valedrun, (I'm submitting it for the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award), I'm returning my focus to Soma. The follow up for Monsoon Reign. In preparation I spent the past week rereading Monsoon Reign to reacquaint myself with the characters. I did notice a few typos and some punctuation that could have been done better. Also I've been told, and I could see it in re-reading, that some of the passage of time is unclear within the story. So I've made some minor ch
I hope you will bear with me on this personal post today. I just want to wish a Happy Birthday to my younger sister and post a memoriam to my older sister who passed away one year ago today. I miss you Thresa.

So I've been meaning to put a post up all week just so it can be known that I am, in fact, still alive. I finished my final, final revision of The Ruling of Valedrun and it's off being proofread. It's been an exhausting few weeks of constant revising. Mix that in with a new workout routine at the gym and hubby gone with the Army for a few weeks and now I'm a zombie.
I decided since it's my birthday today I'd make one of my favorite dishes for dinner. Penne alla Vodka. Of course I wa
Being asked to guest judge the #5minute fiction contest has to have been the funnest thing I've participated online with so far. The contestants were all very talented and I'm so impressed with their ability to come up with compelling stories in such a small amount of time. Each story deserved to win on individual merits but alas only one could take home the prize. Congratulations to Gemma Brocato on this week's win! And thank-you to everyone who participated, I thoroughly enjoyed myse
Tomorrow I have the honor of choosing my five favorite submissions for a flash fiction contest. The blog owner is writer Wendy Strain. She'll post a prompt tomorrow evening at 7:30 pm. CST and the contestants will have five minutes to write their story in the comments section. Once the top five are selected the audience votes for a winner. The winner gets a free copy of Monsoon Reign. I can't wait to have a chance to read all the submissions but I have a feeling picking my favorites will be dif
