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 stories, and personal memoirs which I'm still compiling in the hopes to one day turn into a book. This year, I look forward to those experiences again, and I look forward to building and strengthening already existing and new friendships as I prepare myself to actually move up there in December.

With the finals approaching, a lot of my writing has been placed on hold until I could find the time to get things done. It is with great pride though that I share that I am so close to the finish line with the rewrite, just waiting for proof copy of the book to finalize it before officially making it available! A few weeks ago, I did have a proof sent to me, but I decided that I was not 100% satisfied with the cover layout and texture of the matte cover, so I had to make a few changes and resubmit. With the new book will come a new cover, and potentially a map shared on both my blog and Facebook page for readers to help interpret the world in which this story takes place. With that said, I can't wait to share it all with you, and I just ask for a little more of your patience, and support as the finish line draws near! My hopes are that within a week, I will have a publishing date set to share with you, so prepare to get your new and improved "King's Daughter".

Sincerely,

K. Coleman

Political Drama

As a forward note, this post does not share my political affiliation, nor does it aim to demean or criticize people who voted for either party. Rather this post addresses the rude actions of people on both sites as a result of the election, and the things that I have observed since.


Granted, it's after the elections now, but media and students around campus still buzz about political leaders which generally means sitting and listen to strangers spew off about their personal opinion of what could have been, what will be, and what if the world just imploded so Americans wouldn't have to deal with the stress of a new president anymore. It has been difficult watching who I thought to be friends, tearing apart other friends just because of their political affiliation. I've have people I know who are even American citizens, urging their American Facebook friends to unfriend them because they didn't like who they were voting for. I don't know, but to me there is just som…

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…
