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!

Work, work, work

I have not written in a bit but wow have I been busy. Nothing too exciting, just working on promoting Daughter of Athena and getting reviews for it. I am also currently working on a couple of different writing projects that I’m excited about.

I hope to do some book signings and events soon once Daughter of Athena gets a little more buzz (at least I hope it gets more buzz). It is now available for 99 cents and is also available on Kindle Unlimited! The more readers the better! Honestly, I just hope you all love this book as much as I do.

Remember as an indie author, I would be nowhere without my readers or fan base. Share my work with everyone you know! Leave reviews if you have read it as well! Both of these things help me out immensely. I need you all more than you know 🙂

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!

Yay!

My book signing at Barnes & Noble was far more successful than I thought it would be. I actually sold out of books. That is so unbelievable. Thank you to everyone that made that happen!

While I know Imitatore isn’t perfect and could probably use another revision (I am highly impulsive and don’t think things through sometimes); I am glad to see that people are interested in it and even enjoying it. It is a book you have to have some patience with, this much I know but give it a chance.

I hope to build upon things in the second book. So all of the questions that people have to Imitatore will most likely be answered later down the line.

I am also working on another novel that I am really excited about that. I will tell you more once I get closer to finishing it. I also have to decide exactly what I want to do with it. While self-publishing is great, it is a lot of work on my part as well. So there are things I have to consider.

Anyhoo, that’s all I have today. Hope everything is going well for everyone else!

Much love
