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.

Don’t let your writing bog you down.

And remember:

Keep your bite.

Killing Off Characters
So while in the locker room at college today with my dear friend who has read both The Dark World and The Immortal’s Guide, said that she wants a lot of characters to die, upon my asking who she thought should. I was shocked at one of her suggestions, as the character she mentioned was (not only one of my favorites), but was, in fact, quite integral to showing the state of the soul once one ventured through The Immortal’s Guide, and did something else that I won’t mention here for lack of spoiling things. It just shocked me. Even…
