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!

Astonishing Reviews!

The reviews that I have been getting for Imitatore have seriously been flooring me. I never actually expected that people would love this book. I mean I hoped but my self-deprecating mind wouldn’t allow me to think super positively. Every review I receive makes me tear up just a little bit. As much as I hate to say it, reassurance is amazing.

I don’t really have whole lot to say other than thank you! If you read Imitatore, please be sure to review it. Reviews are what I live on as an author!

In the meantime, check out my most recent review!

We Did It!!!

With great joy I am here to announce that my GoFundMe campaign goal has been met! I seriously am crying from all the overwhelming support I have received from friends and strangers. Your belief in me is absolutely more than I can handle and I don’t know how I am ever going to repay any of you.

You all have helped me realize a dream that I never thought I would get to, let alone even set out to accomplish in the first place. I know I talk about my mental illnesses a lot but they are very real and they often stand in my way. I am hoping that I will be able to stave them off long enough to see this through. Of course, I am going to publish, I just don’t want to fall off on promoting myself.

So again, thank you all for your support and Imitatore will be coming to you all soon! I will keep you updated. Also my GoFundMe will stay up for a few days for any other donations that may come in! Much Love!

More Than Thankful

There are so many people that I cannot thank enough and you all know who you are. Sometimes it is difficult for me to express my gratitude in words because I am a horribly awkward person. I know, a lot of you don’t think that I am but I am pretty good at playing it cool on the outside. Not that being an awkward person is even a bad thing but I will say that at times it is incredibly frustrating.

See, without you all, none of this would really even be happening right now. Sure, I wrote the story but it is all of you that are turning it into something real for me. Whether you are my beta readers, my editors, just here to support, or even someone who donated to my project. There is no way that I can even begin to say how happy you all truly make me.

To my beta readers and editors especially, you all are the most wonderful people I have ever met (well besides my boyfriend obviously). You have taken time out of your lives and days to read my ridiculous book and give me much needed feedback. Something you are in no way required to do but have done it anyway. I cannot imagine why you all jumped on this ridiculous train ride with me but thank you for doing so. Even if you end up hating my book, thank you for taking the time to read it anyway.

Lastly, my lovely, wonderful, intelligent, funny, sweet, kind, and caring boyfriend. My shining star, my rock, my guiding force, and so much more incredibly gross mushy stuff. I love you and without you I don’t know if I would have ever been able to do this. Your unflinching support means so much to me and I know I don’t say it often but I honestly don’t know what I would do without you. You always inspire me, every single day and sure you don’t realize that but you really, truly do. Not to mention the fact that you make me feel like I can accomplish anything and that is something I will always need.
