A little excerpt!

So I wrote something just today after I got a marvelous idea! It is from one of the next two books, which I will not say because I don't want to give any ideas or hints away... I was working on description and detailing, and perhaps this will give you a little insight on the main character of book two, Krea.
-Keep an open mind where the gentleman can be any one of the characters. This excerpt, I might not even put in the book, just because it would spoil things for the reader. But I wanted you all to see just what I have been thinking about lately....


     "Krea stood nervously out on the small hidden balcony. The snow was falling fast now; large white flakes sweeping the crisp morning air. The snow covered buildings of the city were barely visible in the distance. It was only ten in the morning and the loud sounds of the merry laughter and festive music could be heard through the howling winter winds. It was Christmas morning and her hidden feelings hindered her Christmas spirit. She thought about leaving her rooms and joining everyone around the Christmas tree decorated with spiced tangerines and glass blown ornaments. She fought against the urge though...
     He stepped out into the freezing winter air, surprised at the length of time Krea had been able to endure the cold. After all, he had been standing in the open doorway between the room and the balcony for the past twenty minutes, watching her argue with herself. he could have stepped in right away, but fear itself gripped at his stomach as he clenched the delicate present in his hands. Would she like it? What would she say if anything at all? 'Merry Christmas,' He finally said. Krea swiveled around in her heavy crimson gown, the bodice minimizing her breathing. Her long curls cascaded over her bare shoulders as she lifted her eyes to his.
     'Merry Christmas,' She replied with a shy smile."

Things are Changing

With the school year coming to a wrap, time seems to retract from its lengthened state so much so that the days are clearly flying by. A lot has happened as of late, and a lot is still to come. Outside of writing, About a month ago now, I was hospitalized again for my ankle injury after getting cellulitis and a staph infect in my ankle joint from the first surgery I had back in January. It was all quite a debacle, but now I must say my ankle is feeling better than ever, and get more and more excited as my strength returns. Recently I also purchased my first car (well a truck), so I came home this last weekend to clean and repair a bit in preparation for my road trip to Montana for the summer! Last summer was a remarkable experience for me living near and working in Virginia City, and I keep counting down the days until I get to return this year. Not only did I get to experience a lot of memorable things while I was there, but I also got a lot of writing done including working on stori…

Jumping off the Deep End

Well, for those of you reading on here, this news may be coming out of the deep blue, but today is officially publishing day for the new edition of The King's Daughter! Published this evening, about ten minutes ago, (so it will take a little time to actually show up online... but), my book will be available on Amazon and Barnes&Noble in print, and will be available as an e-book within a few weeks when I finish up the formatting! I finally thought it about time to stop fussing over the small things (because I knew it'll never be "done" to me if I keep trying to fix minute details). I'm excited to share this newer version with my family and friends who've always shown such great love and support towards my writing over the years! I've come a long way, but know that I still have a long way to go, and The King's Daughter is just my first stop on that long journey! Publishing this will allow me the time now to give more of my time and attention to wor…

A Moment of Realization

I figured it’s been a month, so it’s about time I remove you from the dark. To be perfectly honest, I could’ve written sooner, but in the past month I’ve been settling in at uni, so writing hasn’t quite been my main focus. I know! I’ve wondered to myself too how I could have possibly gone a full month without touching a single work of writing, but it’s a lot easier when you have something else occupying your time. I admit that my biggest fear coming to school was what others told me- I wouldn’t find the time again to write my stories. I’ll be doggy-paddling neck deep in water, turning in circles as I constantly try to stay afloat. If I’m really in that deep, that no, I wouldn’t ever find time to write for fun again. However, if these first four weeks of school have told me anything, it’s quite the opposite- at least for the time being. While still in search of a job where I can make a decent pay for groceries and savings, I have found that I have a lot more free time than I ever thoug…
