My goal is simple. Finish every series I have started. Now, I'm not a very fast reader. And I prioritize writing over reading. This means I probably won't finish all of these and that's okay. I should also point out, I'm not including companion novels or novellas in my goal, except for Assassin's Blade in… Continue reading 2019 Reading Goals
Did 2018 fly by for anyone else? All year it felt like it was moving way faster than it should have. Querying: Still no change but I'm getting closer. On the first, I finished the last BIG revision of A PRELUDE OF DRAGONS. Next up, line edits. I'll read through the whole manuscript and focus… Continue reading Writing: Monthly Update for December
Whoops! I fell off the wagon again. Sorry it's so late but it's been a hectic month already. Halloween, our son turned 14 on the first, he had a sleepover on the second to the third, after which we did a crap ton of shopping, and spent yesterday with family! So, with all of that,… Continue reading Writing: Monthly Update for October

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
Still a few days late but I feel it was for a good reason. I'm writing regularly again!! Querying: From Stars, Come Dragons: I haven't done anymore submissions for this. Still waiting to hear back from a couple of publishers. Current Novel WIPs: THE GODWING WAGER (formerly STORMWING. Formerly, formerly TDB) – No further… Continue reading Writing: Monthly update for August
