Just A Little Update…

Wow, it’s been a long time since I’ve blogged…anything!  I thought, since I’ve gotten a few questions in real life, asking ‘When’s book 2 coming?’, that I should provide a little update; letcha know what’s going on in this head of mine. Read more…

The Baby Shower

April 24, 2012 in General, Writing - 4 comments

For the last couple of weeks, my sisters, mother and I have been planning my sister, Lisa’s, baby shower.  Not only was I immersed in an assembly line for invitations, a distinguished member of decorations committee, and wannabe sommelier for the secret pre-party meetings, but I helped make arrangements for the cake and bravely experimented with some candy making (yes, I actually gave this a shot and it turns out, I’m not THAT bad at it).  Check this out: Read more…

Flash Fiction – Imprisoned

Flash Fiction – Imprisoned

April 12, 2012 in Flash & Shorts, General - 4 comments

So if you follow my blog then you know I’ve been working on a new series titled SONS OF WRATH.  I wrote a flash piece a while back that inspired two of the characters in the series, Calix & Ava, titled SURRENDER.  Last fall, I wrote this flash story, which gave rise to two more SoW characters. Gavius is one of my favorites to write.  He’s smart and urbane, but can be fierce at times.  Poor guy, I think I’ve tormented him the most.  I’ll make it up to him…eventually. Read more…

I’ve been tagged!

Perhaps you’ve seen this little blogging game going around the internet.  I was tagged by the very wonderful Candice Bundy and since I’ve been dying to share a bit of my new WiP, I thought it’d be fun to play!

But!  I can’t just pick any ole’ scene from the book…and thank goodness, or I’d be here all day trying to decide on one.  So here are the rules:

  1. Go to page 77 of your current ms
  2. Go to line 7
  3. Copy down the next 7 lines/sentences, and post them as they’re written. No cheating
  4. Tag 7 other victims…er, authors

Here’s the thing…I’m not going to tag other authors this time round.  So if you’re reading this and you think you’d like to play along, have at it!  It’s a great way to give a snippet of your work without having to agonize over what lines to choose.

Now on to my Seven:

This is taken from my current WiP that has a working title of Soul Avenged, book 1 of my Sons of Wrath (SoW) series.  Unfortunately, because it comes from the middle of a page in the middle of a chapter from the middle of the book, well, it might not make a whole lotta sense.  Oh!  And there’s some strong language in this one too.  So here goes:

“It’s worth a shot.”  The first words Draven had spoken since earlier in the night.

“Is it, mister wizard?  And what happens when those demon fucks wipe out half our army, huh?  You think we’ll ever get the upper hand on the Lycans?”

“We have the Lywa antibody, we can create soldiers, sir.”

We can create soldiers, sir,” Wade mocked, “I keep forgetting you’re the goddamn expert in this operation, boy wonder.”

Hahaha…oy.  Well, if you think you might be interested in this new series, perhaps I might consider a flash story based on the characters.

Anyone?  Anyone?

What’s Goin’ On?!

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…
