I did get my homework finished and turned in last night. But then I was up for an extra hour, probably coming down off the adrenaline rush of doing all that. I had planned on sleeping in to account for staying up late. Nope. I felt my watch buzz with a notification for me to … Continue reading Walking the baby steps
I am thrilled to let you all know that Walk the Path has been released. This is the second and final part in the Onesong series (unless I decide to also put Cirvel's portion of the story into this series too -- who knows!). Still, this completes Rivic's adventure which started in Tangled Magic. You'll … Continue reading Onesong – book #2 released
Trust the process - an affirmation for telling stories even when the path doesn't make sense.
When I wrote about Cirvel and his genie lamps last week, I had another quote from that scene which I knew would make a great follow-up. Here goes: This is Cirvel's response to Rivic asking why Cirvel would have the genie lamps if genies are such abominations.

Since I'm working with Cirvel in three different novels that I'm currently writing, I have really dug into his character. I feel that one of the traits that makes Cirvel such a delicious character (the kind where you want to hang out from him while you also know you should run away fast) is that … Continue reading When delicious characters sparkle

Mind-mapping and brainstorming with Scapple.

There’s one “gem” though that I’ve been waiting … Continue reading Mysteries of Lilinar
Just wanted to drop a quick note about Tangled Magic being on sale for only $2.99 through the pre-order time to February 1st. If you are already a fan or have yet to experience that (grin), this is a great time to get it. The price will be going up after the deadline and may … Continue reading Fan sale
Did you know that Rivic's story, Tangled Magic, almost didn't happen? As I was working on the first three books of the Sacred Knight series and thinking about Alityka's part, I started seeing scenes with Rivic and Alityka. I even wrote several of these scenes down. All were from Alityka's point of view. Then in … Continue reading How Rivic’s story almost wasn’t
