2 Year Anniversary!

So I may be a terrible person for forgetting the two year anniversary of publishing my first novel "The King's Daughter" back on March 31st, but today was the day that I actually received the first copy ever in the mail!!! It's amazing to think how far that I've come since that day in 9th grade tongue emoticonWith a lot of feedback from other publishers, writers, and friends since that day, I have been able to grow and expand my work into three novels (although the third is not yet finished). Although my first book may not be the best example of my writing at the present, it will forever be extremely important to me as writer and as a person. That is why I am excited to be doing a final rewrite of the book in order to bring it agents, editors, and traditional publishers once I have returned to the US. Other than book one, I have been simultaneously been writing my new book "Seraphina" as well as a new one started for a school class titled "Minds of Fortitude". I know it may not be the brightest idea to do so at the same time, but it's nice to switch from one story to the other when I get writer's block. smile emoticon
That is all beside the point though. I am most grateful, and happy for ALL of the support that I have gotten over these two years. I couldn't keep doing this if it wasn't for all of you. Friends, family, publishers, editors... you have all helped me whether it through something small or something large. Thank you.

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…
