Female dragonslayers that are created, not born. Amara is the top Daughter of her class. When Athena is attacked by a militant group, Amara learns more than she bargained for.

One More Day!

I honestly cannot believe I made it this far without giving up. It’s all just a little too real now that I know it’s happening tomorrow and not some distant time in the future. There has been a lump in my throat for days and I have been sleeping like crap. That’s what anxiety will do to you and I’m super used to it by now.

My gofundme donors have already received a pre-release Ebook copy from me, so I’m definitely freaking out about that as well. I have zero idea if any of them are reading it and I also have no idea how they feel about it. That makes me more nervous than anything ever really has. I just hope they like it. I hope that someone likes it. While I’m not in it for the money at all,  it would be wonderful if this book ended up being a major success. I am honestly just trying not to get too ahead of myself. I don’t like to get my hopes up, I just like to see what happens and go from there.

Agh, I just, wow. That’s really all I have left to say.

Almost There!

It has been a hectic last few days for me, so I apologize for the gap in posting. The release of my book is almost near. I am really excited and hopeful for that day. So far, the reviews from some of my advance readers have been really uplifting. While I would like to be one of those people who is able to say that I don’t need the opinions of others; that is only slightly not true about me.

Positive reinforcement is actually a very helpful thing for me. Though, I do love constructive and helpful criticism as well. Its just nice to know that someone other than me enjoyed something that I wrote. It makes me blush, it makes me giddy, and most of all, it makes me very hopeful for my future as a writer. Honestly, I’m sure I’ve said this way too many times already but I’ve always wanted to be a writer. I never really felt like one and I let fear get in my way too many times to count. I’m still fearful but I’m pushing past it this time.

For the first time in a long time, I think that I’m actually happy. There are no dark and sad thoughts lingering about in my head. I guess the right combination of medication can really change a persons life. Don’t get me wrong, nothing is perfect all the time by any means, but i do feel a lot better. I’m excited to see what this year has in store for me, rather than dreading another day.

So January 11th is marked on my calendar and it should be on yours too!
