The Wicked Woods – Out now!

I don’t know why I thought it would take longer for The Wicked Woods to be ready for human consumption. But I did. And it didn’t. So… The Wicked Woods (Monstrous Tales #1) is now available at Amazon! I’ve also added it to Goodreads if you use that site. The blurb for book 2 is […]

Funny story! (not really, but I’m going to pretend) I haven’t written a word on my planned zombie apocalypse love story book this month. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing. I’ve written a metric fuckton on book 3 in the demon/werewolf series (in case you were wondering, a fuckton is A LOT) and I started […]

Holla, peeps! We’re 12 days into NaNo today and to be on par, you should be at or nearing the 20K word mark. (I’m writing this over the weekend, so I don’t have any hard numbers for you as to where I am, but I am VERY pleased with what I’ve accomplished thus far.) One […]

For those of you following along, we’re on Day 5 of NaNoWriMo. We’ve completed four days of literary madness. Or just madness. Take your pick. Now the FUN part starts. Okay, I’m lying. Some of what comes next isn’t fun. We’ve ridden the adrenaline wave of starting out and are settling into that stretch where […]

This past weekend, I had author Jodi Redford visiting for a few days. I willingly put everything on hold for this visit because OMG! SHE’S A FREAKING HOOT AND I ADORE HER! But this got me thinking… you can prepare and plan and plot until the cows come home and yet sometimes things happen that […]

The Pre-NaNo Countdown

I have ten days to finish my preparedness checklist for NaNo. I know what I’m writing about (ZOMBIES! And two non-zombie people who like to get naked a lot!) and I know where the story needs to start and end. In my opinion, these are probably the most important things. I can do a lot […]

A few weeks ago, I started an impromptu rewatching of Supernatural. I’m in the middle of season 2 and I’m LOVING the balance between drama and humor that those Winchester boys bring to the table. (I’m up to the Trickster episode — Dean, we don’t need more of your blah blah blah blah. Blah blah […]
