The Last Day of 2011

December 31, 2011 in General, Writing - One comment

Weeelllll, I know there’s a lot of these reflective posts going around, but hey, a lot’s happened this year for some of us…monumental events that we’ll never forget as long as we live (unless we end up suffering from some medical affliction that makes us forget and in that case, better to have written it down somewhere).  Besides, I’m a writer.  I love to ramble on paper.

But I’ll try to keep this post short and sweet. Read more…

Flash Fiction- Savior

I was going to post this as a Flash Friday, but I’ve got another post scheduled that day…so I’m going to post this now.  I absolutely love Florence and the Machine.  When I heard this song, a story instantly formed in my head.

Post Release

December 19, 2011 in General, Tips, Writing - 2 comments

It’s been a couple of days now since I released Somnium.  Some folks are waiting on copies while others have already received them and begun reading.  And here I sit…waiting for the reviews to roll in.  I had the pleasure of spending time with family over the weekend at a Christmas party.  Many times I was asked, “How does it feel to be published?”

How does it feel?  Read more…

RELEASE DAY: Somnium (Halos)

December 16, 2011 in General, HALOS: Somnium, Writing - 5 comments

I had this crazy notion a few years back:  to write a book.  I’d written enough of the small stuff (flash, poetry, short stories) for a while.  It was time for a REAL commitment.  It’s so easy to find resolution by the end of a short story, but attempt that in a novel, and well, that requires a bit more than just a few minutes jotting down a storyline.  I’d written chapters, scrapped them, saved some on floppy disks somewhere.  Is there a computer in the world that can read a floppy nowadays?  This was going to be it for me.  My novel.  The one I’d publish.

Six Sentence Sunday #sixsunday – Halos: Somnium #4

December 11, 2011 in General, Six Sentence Sunday - 12 comments

Thank you for checking out my little snippets each week!  I appreciate it :)   This one comes from my soon-to-be-released novel, Halos: Somnium, out December 16th!

In this scene, Allie is being chased through an open field by something massive.  She doesn’t know what follows her.  It catches up.  She trips, falls to the ground and lies cloaked in the grass, waiting with her eyes closed.

I can hear it taking in my smell, savoring the scent of its spoils.  A whimper escapes me.  It’s breath is hot and oddly sweet-smelling, just short of my face.  I open my mouth to scream and feel a rigid hand against my lips.

“Shh…” he whispers.  “Don’t move.”

Be sure to check out the other participating blogs by clicking on the logo at the top of the page.  See ya next Sunday!
