Things I’ve Learned As an Author

By |2019-01-16T13:49:47-06:00March 11th, 2019|Writing Woes|

I’m coming up on my fifth year as a published author. Although it seems like yesterday I began this crazy journey, I know that I’ve grown creatively and professionally. I thought I’d take a blog post to write about all the things I’ve learned as an author. If you have […]

When It Just Happens: Write A Book in a Month

By |2019-03-02T10:29:36-06:00March 4th, 2019|Writing Woes|

In general, I’m not a person who can just write a book in a month. It usually takes me upwards of 3 months to have a book ready for beta readers. However, last April, I experienced a magnificent unicorn-like moment: I wrote 76,000 words in 30 days.

How’d I do it? […]

Hey y’all, it’s been a while! I’ve been too busy depositing words into actual books to stop and put words into this blog. My B.

Anywho, I thought it was high time that I share with you guys some decisions I’ve made for 2019. Some will make you cheer, some will […]

Writerly Updates – September 2017

By |2017-09-22T07:54:15-05:00September 22nd, 2017|Writing Woes|

*pokes head up from under rock* This thing still on?

Well, I live! Sort of. 2017 has proven to be a lot busier than expected, between starting a house flipping business (check it out on Instagram) and writing an entire trilogy and making a billion calls to my elected officials. […]

2017: The Way Forward

By |2017-03-22T09:04:39-05:00March 6th, 2017|Writing Woes|

The past few years, I’ve been pushing pretty hard. At times, I’d have two or three novels in work, able to release as many as nine projects in 2016. Sadly, all that work hasn’t quite resulted in the kind of money that allows me to live off it (not even […]

The Plot Bunnies

By |2017-03-20T10:59:33-05:00August 24th, 2016|Writing Woes|

It feels like a book takes forever to complete, and also no time at all. Even worse is this new phenomena called finishing a series. I just put the finishing touches on The Union today (well, almost finishing. It’s with my typo checkers right now). And now, the only storyline running through […]

April Writerly Updates

By |2017-03-15T10:03:14-05:00April 5th, 2016|Writing Woes|

Boy, for someone who used to post every day, I’ve sure been slacking lately. In my defense, I’ve been using the other social medias more but still…bloggity-blog-blog.

Oh yeah, and all my finger-keyboard-tapping has been geared toward those books you guys love so much.

There’s a lot of schtuff going on in […]

The Problem with NaNoWriMo

By |2017-03-13T10:57:45-05:00November 30th, 2015|Writing Woes|

Because I am a slave to trends and peer pressure, I decided to do the National Novel Writing Month in November. I thought that after writing Alliances, Empath, The Island, Conviction, Fusion, and bits and bobs of other books in the span of one […]

Burn Out

By |2017-03-10T14:30:04-06:00October 26th, 2015|Writing Woes|

When I was all bright-eyed and bushy-tailed in 2014, I planned a crazy busy year for 2015. I envisioned myself breezing through the final touches on my house in Virginia, selling it without a problem, wafting to conventions all over the country, making tons of money and…do you see where […]
