New Acceptance

I got word that my short story, Pyg the Tinker (which is a steampunk-esque take on the Pygmalion myth) will be featured in the Summer Issue of Quantum Fairy Tales! This should go to remind me that your work can’t be published unless you actually submit it. Which means I need to get back inContinue reading “New Acceptance”

Small Incentives

I had the fantastic opportunity to spend this weekend at the RT Convention here in Dallas. RT is hosted by the magazine of the same name (formerly Romantic Times) and brings together writers, readers, and reviewers of the romance community. I won’t go into the full details here, as I am putting together a blogContinue reading “Small Incentives”

Better Late Than Never

I have not been in the writerly way as much in the last few months. I am taking a break from my MFA program since my day job has been so busy. However, I did do one thing… \ I finished the April 2015 Camp NaNoWriMo with a word count of 30,000. While this wasContinue reading “Better Late Than Never”

Reviews in the Wild: All I Want Is You

It is always exciting when a review I have written shows up somewhere beside All About Romance. One of my co-reviews just showed me that my review of All I Want is You is featured on her library’s website. How exciting! Here it is.

What I’ve Done Instead of Write

Since I finished my NaNoWriMo goal a month ago (whew, that flew by) I have done no writing at all. Zilch. The only exception being two book reviews which accounts to not much at all. Here’s what I’ve done in place of writing for the last month: Relax. As soon as NaNo was done IContinue reading “What I’ve Done Instead of Write”

On The Brink

I officially have 2,105 words left until I win National Novel Writing Month! As I am poised on the brink of 50,000 words, I wanted to take a moment to reflect. I thought I would post more updates, but I got carried away in the writing (imagine that) and didn’t come here to post. However,Continue reading “On The Brink”

NaNoWriMo Numbers Update 1

We are currently on day 4 of National Novel Writing Month. This is my first time honestly trying NaNoWriMo so I was pretty nervous about whether I would be able to make my words for each day, since I need to do about 1,667 to finish on time if I write every day. Here’s theContinue reading “NaNoWriMo Numbers Update 1”

Pandora’s Box

I participated in a Pandora’s Box book discussion over at All About Romance on Sarah Morgan’s new romance Maybe This Christmas. Sarah Morgan’s Maybe This Christmas is the third in her O’Neil Brothers series. The first two (Sleigh Bells in the Snow and Suddenly Last Summer) received a B+ and an A- here at AAR.Continue reading “Pandora’s Box”

I Think I’m Not a Planner

I’ve spent the last few weeks thinking about planning my NaNoWriMo book. Please note that thinking is the key word there. I’ve been trying to figure out the best way to take 12-ish years worth of ideas and slap them on paper as an outline that is actually of any benefit. So far, I haveContinue reading “I Think I’m Not a Planner”
