A Very Medieval Christmas

As you may know, the winter season is upon us! Well at least as much as it will be here in Phoenix, Arizona. I don't know what you will be asking for Christmas this year, but this year I have a feeling my Christmas will be very medieval. Now living in a new place, I feel the need to put together a new outfit for the upcoming renaissance festival in January. I need to make an impression here! Some may know that all of my outfits so far have been made by me (except for my buckled corset). It's a way that I can generally save money while creating the look that I want. However, when it comes to accessories, I prefer to purchase those one at a time when I save the money. Last Christmas I was (and still am) so grateful for the absolutely beautiful and stunning brass and pearl crown that I asked for- handmade and etched in brass from the amazing store Armstreet, whose photography can be seen on the cover of my book The King's Daughter! From this I hope to create an entirely new outfit by actually getting my first dress made by someone else this Christmas with the XVI european corset dress also made by Armstreet!  Doesn't that sound lovely? I would love to hear what you will be wishing for this Christmas! Will it be medieval? modern? handcrafted? vintage?

Sincerely,

K. Coleman

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…
