Revise finished!

I am currently at school, but that didn't stop me from working on my revise of the edited version of book 2! Now finished with first edited version, The Prince's Assassin is about to go off to my second editor/proofer in hopes that I should be done by early May!

good reads

I'm on Good Reads!

It's made me very happy when I heard from a few people these past weeks that I've inspired them and their motives for writing. It brings joy to my heart to hear I can do that for people :) I believe more people should put their work out there if they really work hard. Most will be surprised at how well their work does. :)

Does grammar matter????

It's such a broad question with tons of answers, but truth is, to me.... Well, no. Not on the level that most would expect me to. In general I am rather good about checking my grammar in papers and my writing, but sometimes on things that don't really matter to me, I don't... And I get criticized, A LOT. I am a writer though; an author meant to share a story. That is my job. If I wanted to be an editor or proofer then of course my grammar would be perfect! But it isn't, and do I mind? No, because my whole purpose is to tell a story to a reader and if I can do that,(even with a few grammatical mistakes), then I have done well. I'm pretty sure reading this, you have caught at least five grammatical or punctual errors, but you understood the purpose of this message? I want to thank my lovely editor, AND my proofer, who have helped me so much with my writing this past year.  They are he ones who make my work presentable for those who care about grammar in writing too m…

To be published, and published...

I've received my first edited version of book two from my lovely editor today in the mail, but thanks to the magic of computers and scanning documents (which she sent me early), I am already 81 pages in. A few hundred now to go. :D I've also taken the first leap with sending out letters to publishers. A few might not make a difference at first, but as long as I'm out there, I'm happy. :) I'm not sure if I've told you my true hopes in publishing, but my main goal one day is to have a positive influence on other young writers like I am now. Is that too much to hope for? ;) Have a great week!

Pictures, Pictures, and more Pictures!

I had a great time visiting Garmisch-Partenkirchen this ski break with my familys. It was gorgeous! and might I say it didn't really look like winter until we got up on the ski slopes. I was really hoping for snow to get some pictures in my costumes, but I have to say it was great taking them in the warmth and sunshine! Here are a few from the shoot! (credits to Jennifer Coleman;)
