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 🙂

Daughter of Athena

My new novel, Daughter of Athena is officially for sale! I am so very excited to share this story with you!

After dragons attacked, the city of Athena rose from the ashes of Chicago. With Athena, a new program to protect the city began. Project name: Daughter of Athena. 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. Everything is not what it seems; with the dragons or with the government. Amara must decide which path to take as she struggles with learning the truth about herself.

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!

Hello All!

I am sorry that I have been away for so long! I have been going through some personal life stuff and working on another project as well. I am glad to be back and hope to be more consistent in the time to come.

As a gift for my absence; allow me to announce my new novel Daughter of Athena. Currently I am in the process of searching for an agent for this particular work, so wish me luck on that. I will add the description here so that you can see what I have been working on. Hope you like it!

Amara is a 25-year-old woman and a dragon slayer created by the government to protect the City of Athena. 80 years ago, Chicago was attacked by dragons for an unknown reason. Causing devastation throughout Earth and forcing a rebuild of society. When the new government was formed, a program was enacted to protect Chicago called the Daughters of Athena. All of that changes when another attack on the city changes everything Amara thought she knew. In the midst of the attack, Amara is kidnapped by a group known as The Sacred Scales. The Sacred Scales reside in the settlement known as New Chicago. A place where those who wish to escape the tyranny of the government find refuge.

 The Sacred Scales believe that the key to saving Earth from destruction is to worship the dragons as the Goddesses they believe they are. Here, Amara meets Joslyn, the current leader of The Sacred Scales and the rebellion against the government. Though, all is not as it seems with the dragons, the government, or The Sacred Scales. When Amara helps strike a deal for the dragons with Cyra, the leader of the remainder of the government, she learns more than she bargained for. War and Chaos ensues, leaving Amara to choose where her loyalty truly lies.

Hi-Yo!

I promise I am still here! I have just been so busy and so sleepy that I keep forgetting that I have a blog to keep up to date with. I have been working on writing mostly. I also sent Imitatore to an agent just to see what would happen. I am not expecting much from that endeavor but I figured it doesn’t hurt to try. It has already been getting such positive reviews and it’s only been out for a month or so now. I realize that this probably doesn’t actually mean anything but I’ll never get anywhere if I’m too scared of putting myself out there.

I am also currently working on another book! Title is to come but I am super excited about this story. I feel myself growing as a writer with every chapter I churn out, so I am really proud of that. What I need to work on is outlining (I rarely ever actually do it). Most of my writing is basically shooting from the hip but I need to find some structure somewhere. It is definitely a process but I’m sure I’ll get the hang of it.

Besides all of that. I will be signing books at Barnes & Noble on April 7th! Join my mailing list for more information about that!

Thank you all for being here! You are greatly appreciated!

Finding the Fountain of Youth- Book Review

Finding the Fountain of Youth by C. A. King

Finding the Fountain of Youth by C.A. King is a fun and exciting tale of mermaids and mythical legends. A young outsider named Nadine slowly finds her place in the world by embarking on an unlikely quest to save it. C. A. King does well at tell the story with efficiency while keeping it light-hearted and funny. I would love some more backstory on Nadine, the mermaids, Merliance, and Pandora but other than that, I had fun reading this book. I am excited to check out the rest of the series as well, I have become a little attached to Nadine and her journey. I also really liked the diversity in this book and the strong female characters, so bonus points for that.
