Welcome to my Blog! Here you'll find posts about my life, inspiration I find on the way, and of course, writing updates, excerpts, and cover reveals! I'll even be reviewing books I read (if you're here for movies I'm into, check Monster thoughts). Grab your tea (or coffee) and stay awhile!

Blurb Writing

Quick post before I go cook dinner for myself and the boyfriend.
book, novel, the two swords

So an hour ago or so, I started to write the blurb for The Two Swords, because I grew tired of staring at a mostly blank screen on it’s Goodreads page, and I got something, but it wasn’t…all together there.

So I stared at the screen for a long time, gave up, and went to write the actual book – stumped there. I know how I want to start it but apparently my mind doesn’t want me to start it…at least not now.

So I’m taking a break from the blurb creation and the book creation (can’t write an outline until I have a semi-decent beginning; dunno why that is for me), and I’m going to focus on other things like taking my adorable puppy outside in the snow (again)

and cooking.

Don’t let your writing bog you down.

And remember:

Keep your bite.

Well, isn’t that an adorable puppy?
Blurbs can be tricky, but for whatever reason I would much rather write one of them than a pitch line or full synopsis. I guess that middle point is just more natural to me!

Excerpt from Current Vampire-Pirate Work in Progress, SINNER SHARPE
A taste of the new fantasy world I’m conjuring! Some explanation before we jump into it: I started writing this series several years ago, after getting inspired by Glen Cook’s THE BLACK COMPANY series. I wanted to write about a swashbuckling mercenary who has the job of a lifetime, I just couldn’t get the stakes right. If you were a patron of mine, then you know all about Sinner Sharpe and how it went from strictly a pirate fantasy adventure to a vampire-infested pirate…horror adventure. You see, I was stuck on it for years — unable to get past Chapter 1. Literally the other…
Get To Know Xavier Delacroix
If you completely missed the tweet of me freaking out over the art the lovely  @feyspeaker  made of one of the main characters in THE DARK WORLD series the other day, you missed almost crying about how wonderful the art came out.It was so serendipitous to receive the finished artwork while on stream. Because of this, I’m much more inclined to finally go ahead and do a character dossier like I had planned since the beginning of the series but couldn’t because there wasn’t any art for it.So here it is! He is about 30 something years old in human…
