I love writing but it might be the death of me. After finishing book 2 of my dragon series, I realized it was time to give book 1 a new name. That's where I'm going to start this post so I can easily reference it (SPOILER: I never reference it LOL) FROM STARS, COME DRAGONS… Continue reading If I die, my book did it. Meet my murders.

I've been deep in the revision trenches this last week and as a result have been completely unable to come up with a blog topic. So, I took to Twitter and asked for a topic. Honestly, I didn't think I'd get a response but I was happy to be wrong. Chris Williams asked how about… Continue reading Just Writing Things – 7 – #amwriting thoughts on making writing a career
It took 3 fewer weeks than I planned and about 13K fewer words but it doesn't matter because I reached the end of my WIP! The rough draft, that is. 😉 Remember, this is really rough.

Right now: I'm writing SKIN AND SCALE (SAS) the "sequel" to FROM STARS, COME DRAGONS (FSCD.)… Continue reading Just Writing Things – 5
What's this? A timely update?! I know, I can't believe it either. Querying: From Stars, Come Dragons: I'm officially taking this one off the table. Technically, there's still one publisher I haven't heard from but that's OK. I'm going to file it as a rejection and move on because I have PLANS! Current Novel… Continue reading Writing: Monthly Update for September
