Well hello there. I do apologize that I am not a frequent poster to my own blog, but truth be told, I find that I am more entertaining when writing fiction than when blogging.
Currently in the works is a series a good friend of mine planted the seed for a few months ago. I have just finished the first part, the introduction if you will, and have sent it off to a publisher. I do hope they decide to take this on. I am excited to get to work on some of the other books in the series, but I have a couple other little projects I want to get completed first. I want to be able to devote the time I feel is necessary to the series to make it what I think it could and should be.
The next installment of the Fairy Tale Series should be along soon. Making some edits to the next story. If you enjoy my writing, please pop over to TEB and pick up a copy of Assassin’s Heart. And make a note my second book On Angel Wings will be released on May 26th!
In an ivory castle in a far away land, a beautiful queen with pale, pale skin and dark hair sat in her bathtub, large brown eyes trained out of the window as she ran her bath sponge up one of her slender arms, leaving in its wake a trail of rose scented bubbles. She and her husband, the king, had wanted a child of their own and for years, they were not blessed with the sound of a little one in the castle. Sighing softly, she lowered her hands to the water and sniffled softly. “Am I to be cursed to never know the joy of having a child? What have I done to displease those who might bless me with such who my husband and I can share our love?”
I wanted to share a little background on myself and my writing. While I began writing when I was a kid, I didn’t actually really get into it until much later. I am a former fan fiction writer. I have a ton of things I wrote that I would love for the mainstream public to read, so I am editing (and in some cases completely re-writing) some of the shorter stories I wrote. I will be posting those here as well as some new shorts for freebies. I will also be sending said freebies to my publishers as free reads. Hopefully I can begin to build a fan base for my writing. Gods, I hope so.
I am officially a published author! And how will I celebrate this wonderous day? By editing my book due out next month. Perfectly fitting in my mind.
Pick up a copy of Assassin’s Heart here!
If you do read it, I hope you enjoy it.
Has it really been over a month since I last posted here? Wow. Well, I have had quite a few things going on and my internet has been spotty at best. In any event, an update awaits!
Edits have been completely finished for Assassin’s Heart and it is ready for release on April 9th. I am both nervous and yet, high school girl excited about this. This is my first book and I am nervous as to how it will be received by the public at large, but I am also excited because, well… it’s my first published book. The editing process was nothing like I thought it would be and while I was completely frustrated at the beginning, I am a little more comfortable about it now. The only thing I could do without, however, is reading my manuscript and feeling as though a friggin’ teenager wrote it when I know I am well and beyond my teenage years. Well… here goes nothin’!
I received the cover art for my second book this week and am so pleased with it. So pleased in fact that I am going to share it here with you now:
I am so completely tickled about finally seeing this, I don’t really have the words to share how much. I haven’t even seen the edits on this one, but I am fairly certain that they will be massive (if my first editing session is anything to go by). I am up for it though. This is a story that I felt so passionate about when I first wrote it and still do to this day. This one is tentatively scheduled for release next month. I say tentatively because it was originally due out for early May, but was pushed back twice, so I am a little nervous that it could happen again.
In other news, I am currently working on the first in a series of books (God help me). I have had an idea for awhile whose seed was planted by a very dear friend a few months ago, but it’s only been recently that I thought I could make a go of it. Here’s to hoping anyway. I have never really thought of myself as a series kinda girl, but who knows, maybe this will be such a good thing for me to actually undertake and complete.
I really think I need to spice up this blog a bit… got a few ideas… stay tuned! And don’t forget to pick up a copy of Assassin’s Heart on April 9th!
