Expressly Forbidden

I've been expressly forbidden by my beta readers to edit while they're working on their notes, which gives me time to work on my other project, Dragon Soul. There's also a book haul I just came home with yesterday to dive into. Yay for free time.... This forbidding me to meddle in my work also... Continue Reading →

Fool’s Journey- 1st 50 pages

The Alpha stage is over for the front quarter of the book, and on to Beta... Let me know what you think! Silvery light from a full moon filtered through a scattering of clouds, illuminating the stone markers of the dead as pinpricks of reflected light that stretched out ahead of her, disappearing into the...

First Chapter Updates

While I've been posting my first-ish draft here, I thought I'd post the changes in a separate post. The first epilogue chapter got cut, but I'm still holding on to the idea of adding one, only from the POV more directly involved with real-time events that shed a vague light on how Desiree was augmented....

Dragon Soul teaser

Staring back at her reflection in the pool, she stretched her wings again, enjoying the feeling of them. Closing her eyes, she stretched her head in the breeze, imagining what it must feel like to hover above the Earth, free of her dis-belonging. With a long sigh, she opened her eyes, worried the others might... Continue Reading →

Expression of Art

Follow Through I really did delete my writing projects! A very strange thing to be excited about, I know, but this past week has been the lightest I've felt in a long time. I don't go to sleep feeling like a loser-slacker because, for yet another day, I haven't hit the finished mark. Clearing the path, to... Continue Reading →

*DELETED*

After much back-and-forth, over-thinking, re-thinking, and second-guessing, eventually leading nowhere, I've decided to DELETE two book projects I've been working on for years. These books have plagued me with feelings of failure, so I'm concluding it's time to officially scratch them, move forward, and embrace that I never organized the ideas into coherency worthy of book...
