Long overdue update

Well, I didn't win NaNo this year. November was weirdly busy and I had a lot of trouble focusing on writing (or on anything, really, as it took this long for me to even make this post...). I did get about 21k written in Crimson Hollow Book 2, so I at least did something, just not as much as I'd wanted.

Finding Home Again goes on sale this week, and I'm excited about it. I've booked a handful of promos, and I'm hoping they pay off.

And a little additional treat for those of you who are fans of Hannah and Eli from No Safe Place and Finding Home Again, I'm planning to release a wedding short story some time early next year, so stay tuned for updates on that! As always, Patreon subscribers get first peeks at excerpts and cover reveals, so consider becoming a Patron; $1 a month gets you access to cover reveals, and $5 gets you excerpts.

I'm going to Colorado over Christmas to spend time with family, and I'm hoping maybe I'll be a little inspired to write …


The new version of No Safe Place is now up on Amazon! It'll be 99 cents for the next week or so, and then will go to regular price, so get it cheap while you can!

Cover reveal!

In light of being able to republish No Safe Place soon, I figured it was a good time to show off the new cover before it's up on Amazon.

Thanks again to the wonderful Agata at Bukovero. I went to her with no clear idea of what I even wanted, and she came up with this beautiful cover that's just perfect for the book. I'll definitely be using her again, and I highly recommend her.

Anyway, without further ado, here's the shiny new cover for No Safe Place!

I've already changed the paper back cover on Amazon, and the Kindle Version will hopefully be up soon as well. I'll definitely post a link as soon as it's available!


Small updates, but updates nonetheless.

I have finally received my rights back from Amazon for No Safe Place, but it's not effective until December, which puts a bit of a crimp in my planned Christmas promotion, as I can't run a Kindle Countdown Deal on it until it's been up for 30 days.

However, I am still doing a Christmas promo, just on a different book: Finding Home Again will be on sale from December 20 through December 27! I've booked a few promos, a couple through tried and true sites, and one through a new one that I decided to test out, so we'll see how it goes.

I'm planning to place No Safe Place at 99 cents for the first few days, for those that might want to buy it again for the new cover and minor text changes (which I still have to finish, but NaNo...), and then I'll probably do a Kindle Countdown Deal on that in January.

The Only One will likely get its own KCD around Valentine's Day. I'm trying to make 2019 the year of better promotin…

Happy NaNoWriMo!

Well, it's November. Where does the time go...

NaNoWriMo has begun, and I'm off to a bit of a slow start, but I'm hoping I can pick up the pace soon. It's been a couple of months since I wrote anything, I have to get back into the habit.

In other book news, I've requested my rights back from Amazon for No Safe Place, and once I get them, I'll be republishing the book on KDP with a few small text changes, and a brand new cover! I'm keeping the cover under wraps for right now, until I'm ready to republish, but if you want to see it before then, all you need to do is become a Patron for just $1 a month. Just one dollar gives you access to cover reveals before anybody else gets to see them! Seems like a pretty good deal to me XD

Once No Safe Place is fully under my control, I'll be doing a couple of sales, so keep an eye out for those, and I'm hopeful that next year, I can start doing regular promotions on all of my books.

If you're participatin…

Crimson Hollow Book 1 Cast + Summary; NaNoWriMo 2018!

So, I posted this on Patreon a while back, and figured it was time to share it here as well.

I, like many authors, like to cast my characters. I find it provides a nice template for describing how they look, and it's always fun to imagine my books being turned into movies or TV shows with my dream cast.

So, as a little sneak peek, I thought I would share the cast and character names for Book 1.

Elric/Alex - Lee Pace
Eveline - Hayley Atwell
Marcus - Mehcad Brooks
Parker - Zac Efron
Lily - Arden Cho
Ian - Tom Ellis
Senara - Aja Naomi King
Marina - Lana Condor
Pearl - Sabrina Carpenter
Adelaide - Jenna Coleman
Delilah - Lily Collins
Arabella - Nicole Beharie
Rosalind - Gugu Mbatha-Raw
Kahina - Uzo Aduba
Godric - Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje
Arthur - Daniel Radcliffe
Petronella - Emily Baldoni
Elisabet - Helena Mattsson
Robert - Gary Oldman

I've also decided to participate in NaNoWriMo again this year, working on Crimson Hollow Book 2! You can read the summary and a brief excerpt on t…

The world is quiet here

Not too much going on here. Still taking a bit of a writing break, but I'm hoping to dive in to Crimson Hollow Book 2 soon. In the meantime, I've been having a bit of a craving for historical drama (perhaps all the flashbacks in Book 1?), so I've just finished watching The Tudors, and I'm about to start Game of Thrones (which, yes, I know isn't historical, but it's got the vibe I want).

There is a little bit of book news to report, however. After having her website bookmarked for probably over a year by now, I've finally commissioned Agata over at Bukovero to make a new cover for No Safe Place. I've been admiring her covers for a while, and finally decided to bite the bullet. I'm hoping to use her for the Crimson Hollow series covers when the time comes, but I figure it's best to start small and work my way up. (Also, I can barely afford one cover right now, it'll be some time before I can afford a whole series XD)
I'm so excited to see …
