Why No Videos?

I have not filmed a book update in a while. That's a lie actually. I have, they just haven't been finished because every time I open iMovie, it freezes after about five minutes and won't close or operate. So... I am in search of a new free program or website where I can do them... However, I did write up what I talked about in the last one, so I have that to share with you. :) Or at least I thought I did! I just went through my documents and cannot find it, so I suppose I had some moment where I didn't want anyone to find it so I didn't save it. Oh well... I can just write it now!

I just finished final exams, so I haven't been writing for a while now, or working on my stories because I had to focus on school. However, school is almost out, so that should no longer be a problem! I recently introduced the title of my new story I have started... Seraphina. I will share more about the story later, perhaps even create a page for it. This will be my novel I enter in Scholastic Art and Writing this year! Good to get a head start, right?

As for book two, I am revising even more edits in hopes that I can get it perfect. I am now looking into "professional" editing and reviewing services from traditional publishers in hopes that they can help improve my work even more. This is something I have been seriously considering as of late. Book three is still being written: "The Kingdom's Spy". I got permission from the lovely Armstreet Medieval Company once again for the cover which is fantastic! As for the story however.... Well, can I be honest and say that I am not pleased? But I think I have said that before. I have decided to hold off on the writing of the story until summer comes and I have the time to go through thoroughly and fix everything that I have decided either shouldn't be in, or needs to be fixed. I believe that is the best solution.

So far, that is all I need to say! I will let you know when there is more!

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…

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…
