A Little Catch-Up

Hidden Secrets: Well, let's just say that it's coming along... haha! You know, having written the first one of these books starting in eighth grade, I can see how my style of writing has developed and changed to where I am now. I would not say that I am not "proud" of "The King's Daughter", because I love it like a child, and I am so intrigued by the characters and places I have created, as well as the scenarios and conflicts. But! I do know that it could use a little more touching up here and there to become (maybe, hopefully, one day) a "masterpiece". I am completely infatuated with the idea of "The Prince's Assassin" (or at least the characters), but I do know that it also requires a little more work to get to a "Great" standing point. I can't wait! to get to work on it more though, and to mold it until it can gleam up on a pedestal of its own! To be quite honest, I am slightly confused myself as to what I am doing with the third book. I've got a lot of ideas, and a lot written down (appx. 70,000), but I am not sure if I am 100% satisfied with it. There is work to do! (P.S. I believe that if this trilogy does get polished, I might wish to change the trilogy name to something a little more captivating and/or unique)

The Enchantress of Erimere (Seraphina): Oh! So much to say! But I do not wish to bore you! (which I have probably already accomplished.) Of course as all first drafts are, "Seraphina" could use some touching up (as well). I do however, believe that this is very different (possibly even more mature) that "The King's Daughter". Of course if you don't know what it is about, you can read what I have on the book's page if you simply click on the tab to the left <-- . I must admit that there comes complications when working with the realm and concept of magic. I do admire the complexity of such a skillful, very ancient idea/ possibility that man can sort of draw on this energy from within themselves and from their surroundings, to shape and use it for their bidding. In this book, it is called "magick". The term "magick" was traditionally a concept created by Aleister Crowley. Ultimately, magick referred to the ability to cause change in any object by will. But, the change must be within the nature of the object. Although this particular rule does not apply to all that the characters within this book do, I want to hopefully further develop it perhaps later on.

A NEW STORY: Well, I suppose I am always working on a "new" story. This one, at the current moment, is called by me, "Minds of Fortitude". It is my first attempt at some sci-fi, and I am loving it! Let me just say that the main characters are a boy and a girl, who both live separate lives on a planet sort of similar to a very, very different Earth. After multiple nations/countries went to nuclear war with one another (35 years before), their planet was left a wasteland (for the most part). Estelle's parents are highly ranked citizens who work directly under the Leaders.... click on the new page to read more!

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…
