Hey! I read a book! LOL I don't read nearly as much as I used to. I have a horrible habit of picking up another author's voice. When I finished up the rewrite of 'Tiadar' and sent it off to my beta readers, I decided I needed a break. I picked up a copy of … Continue reading Book review – Alex McKenna and the Geranium Deaths
Morning everyone! I've been hard at work. Both the retail job and writing. 'Inversion of Magic' is up for sale, and I've got a couple events in November where you can pick up copies. I'll get those dates and locations listed on that part of my site in a few days. Writing wise, I've been … Continue reading Progress!
Today, I took a leap of faith. "Inversion of Magic" (formerly titled 'Arine's Sanctuary') has been uploaded as a self-published title. It's on Amazon as an ebook, print book is coming. I enrolled it in the Kindle Unlimited program as well. New title, new cover, but the story is the same. It's one I have … Continue reading And I’m back!
Hey everyone! Yeah, I've been quiet. LOL. We took a short vacation, and it helped to get out of town. I've regained my momentum, my perspective. I'm hard at work combining both 'Mark of the Successor' and 'Consort of the Successor' into a single, well done novel. It's good to revisit the story! I found … Continue reading I’m still here!
Hey everyone! Let's get real for a moment here. If you've read my prior posts, you know that July was a hard month. Bedbug infestation, leaving my publisher, quitting one job. I'm struggling right now. Not with money or the new schedule. But with not being extremely bitter toward the one person who drove me … Continue reading Trying hard not to be bitter
Today, I'm more than thrilled for my friend and fellow author, Vicki-Ann Bush! Her new book, "Alex McKenna and the Geranium Deaths", is about to hit the shelves! I came to know Vicki-Ann at my prior publisher. She's a great author! If you've ever read YA, or have one in your life, I recommend her … Continue reading Being a teen is hard enough…
Okay, folks, I did something big today. I asked for all the rights back to my books with Solstice Publishing. And I resigned my position as their COO. I've removed all links to my books for now. I'm seriously considering self-publishing at least a few titles by the end of the week. After that, it's … Continue reading Fresh starts
I hate things like this. I want readers to buy books because they want to read them. Because they sound interesting, and the first few pages hooks them. I don't want to be sitting here, asking you to buy my books, simply because life happened. But it did. We've got a bug problem in our … Continue reading Well, crap!
I'm super excited this morning! Not too long ago, I entered a Twitter short story contest. Mine was selected to have a video made, with a voice over actress reading it! https://storypitches.com/2019/06/03/twitter-short-story-you-called-by-katemarie-collins/ Seriously...go check it out! I'm awake now, and it's not the coffee's doing. LOL BB
It's Saturday. The house is quiet. I should be writing. And by that I mean more than just this blog post. LOL There's a sense of celebrity that comes with being able to tell people you're a published author. I can see it in their faces. You've done something that they think is special. With … Continue reading Let’s get real
