Well, Hello There!

My goodness, it has been a bit yet again! I keep falling off the map but honestly, I needed the break. Things in my life have been going rather well. The biggest thing is that I got married! We had planned on having a wedding in March but we ended up eloping earlier than that in October. It was super fun and exciting and I got to go to Vegas for the first time in my life. Don’t worry, we’ve been together for 7 years now, so it wasn’t some crazy, I didn’t know this person thing. It’s a good thing we eloped, otherwise, our wedding would have been canceled due to COVID-19.

COVID-19 has been crazy and we have been staying home as much as we can, I hope you are too! I gotta say, wearing masks everywhere hasn’t been fun but I understand that it is necessary.

As for my writing, I have been taking a much-needed break from all of my projects. I have so many in the works that I haven’t been keeping track of things like I should. I hope to have a new book out soon but we shall see how that goes. I’ve mostly been focusing on school and work. I graduated this semester with my Associate’s Degree with an emphasis in Psychology. Now, I’ve decided to go to business school instead of pursuing psychology. It a crazy story as to why but I am not going to get into it.

Anyhow, I just wanted to check-in. I know my last post was forever ago and I try not to be away for that long. Just know that everything is alright over here and I hope to have new work done at some point.

Daughter of Athena is still doing well and thank you to my fans for hanging in there with me!

Things Be Happening!

Hey all! I know I’ve gone MIA again, I apologize for that. Things have been hectic on my end. Between school, therapy, and work, I haven’t had much time for the things I would like to be doing.

I have been working on promoting Daughter of Athena and I have a couple of events coming up, so I’m excited about those.

I have also been working on the sequel to Daughter of Athena and I hope to have it done within the next couple of months. We will see about that though haha. Sometimes I’m a little too eager for things.

Anyhow, just wanted to stop in and say hi as well as update you all on current events! Much love!

Oh The Frigid Cold

Sometimes I wonder why I still live in Minnesota. I mean, I was moved here as a child so it is not like I had much choice in the matter. There is also the fact that I don’t really see myself living anywhere else. EXCEPT, for days like these.

It is so cold that my nose hairs freeze the second I walk outside. That is absurd and quite frankly, this weather is just disrespectful. I would rather be home writing or doing homework but unfortunately, every one else at the office is out today, which means that I have to be here. Honestly, I’m glad I am privileged enough to have a vehicle because I don’t know what else I would do. Normally, I take the bus to work but I just could not do it today.

I hope everyone else is finding ways to stay warm. I know I’m wearing way too many layers and I’m uncomfortable at my desk haha. We will see how the day goes but I cannot wait for this polar vortex to be over.

Reviews

Reviews are slowly but surely rolling in for Daughter of Athena, and I must say that I am really happy with what I’m seeing. Overall, people seem to love the book, I have not received a review under 4 stars yet. Honestly, I’m a little shocked. I was quite ready for people to tear this book to shreds haha. Glad that’s not happening.

Promotion is tedious and sometimes very difficult. Often things cost money that I do not actually have at the moment. Hopefully at some point I will be able to spend more to get my book at there but for right now, I am satisfied with the work I am doing. Still trying to get a book signing set up somewhere, I just have to make the calls that are necessary to do so. Not to mention, the semester has started and I’m up to my ears in homework right now.

So, as far as reviews go. Keep reviewing and keep sharing with your friends! It is immensely helpful to me and I am grateful for every single review or share I receive.

I’m Back (Again)

Yes, I know; I have been away for a while. I have been writing but most of all I have been focusing on my mental health. Something that is very important and crucial to my ability to write. It has been a journey but I’m finally starting to feel like a person again, so I guess that’s better than nothing.

Daughter of Athena is still waiting to hear back from agents (yes, I refer to my manuscripts as if they are a person). I’m hopeful but I’m not gonna lie, those rejections hurt a little bit. I’m thrilled about the story and I think that other’s will enjoy it as well. If it comes down to it, I have zero problems with self-publishing it as well.

I am also back to working on the sequel to Imitatore. I took a break from the story because I wasn’t entirely sure where I wanted to go with it. Now that I have an idea, and a small spark of inspiration; it is back in my rotation of works. I also recently self-published a collection of poetry, which you can find on Amazon. It is called Legal Pad Poetry: Poems From Yellow Paper. I hope you enjoy it!

Alrighty, that’s enough out of me. Back to writing!
