Summer is Gone?!

I've got a confession... I've had a whole summer break to give constant updates to you, but I have instead spent my time doing everything except that... I've visited flea markets (where I bought a new typewriter)... I went to more medieval festivals where I spent more money that I've been working all summer for babysitting... and I spent countless hours catching up on America's Got Talent and So You Think You Can Dance. Yup, that basically sums it all up.

Oh! And I read ONE book this summer. A new record for the least amount of books I've ever read in two months! That book IS an amazing book however called Thief's Magic by Judi Canavan. With wasting all my time, I've somehow only managed to make a LITTLE bit of progress on Seraphina and The Kingdom's Spy as well as begin a new English Literature course. Now with six days left of summer, what am I to do? Final confession: I feel as though I have nearly all but wasted my summer as a writer. That means I must make up for it. Scholastic Competition is in December and NaNoWriMo is in November so I've got to get some writing done!

I am somewhat pleased to share with you that Seraphina is now 53,000 words in and well past the limit for Scholastic (I shared that before I think), so I should now be working on The Kingdom's Spy. Oh!

Oh! News I forgot to share!
Unfortunately, the name of my new book will not be titled Seraphina as I have been sharing. I chose to call it that until I came up with a more permanent title; and seeing as Seraphina is the name of the main character, and shorter than the title, I thought to temporarily call it that. However, I have finally come up with a title!

The Enchantress of Erimere 

To explain the title and spoil the book a little bit: Seraphina (the main character), is the "enchantress" so to speak. Erimere (pronounced air-i-mere), is the kingdom which she lives in.  
*More will be shared later. 

For now, that is all that I can think of. I will definitely write more about how book three is coming along later for those who are anxious! I am so sorry to announce to those who don't know, but The Prince's Assassin will be held off from publishing for a little while longer until after Scholastic Art and Writing is done and the new year begins. :( It bums me out too. I really can't wait to share Kreathine's adventure with you because I feel that she has a spectacular tale to tell, and a beautiful love story as well ;) Goodnight from Germany!

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…
