2016 in Review and Looking Forward to 2017

With 2017 just around the corner I wanted to write a recap on 2016. 2016 was a good year, for me at least and a lot of exciting things have happened. So here you go!




Exciting Things That Have Happened to Me This Year:


My family went to Ghatlinburg and my mom, my brother and I hiked a mountain and saw some gorgeous waterfalls. It was an amazing experience. I went down to Indianapolis with a college group from my church and handed out food and water and talked to the homeless. It was a very eye opening and unique experience. This is small but it was a great experience too. I helped out at my church's food pantry for an evening. It was a fun time. I had my first book professionally edited. When I gave Weapon Icean over to my editor I thought it was only 90% but when I got it back it was like she'd filled and helped fix all the holes, making it 100%. I published my first book! 2016 will go down as the year I published my first book and I will always look on this year and remember…

My Favorite Books of 2016

Hey guys! So right now all I can seem to think about or talk about is Weapon Icean. I just ordered five copies last Friday so I'm hoping they'll be here by next week. I can't wait to have my book in my hands! It's so surreal.






I want to do a string of blog posts about Weapon Icean. Some character files and posts about the superhero genre but I didn't feel like this was a good week to start that what with Christmas so close. I think I'll start it next Wednesday.






Also I'm obsessed with Pinterest and that's where I get most of my inspiration so check out my Storyboard for Weapon Icean Here..






For now though I want to give you guys a list of the best books I've read in 2016. I know it's a tiny bit early to be thinking back on this year since Christmas isn't even here yet but I've been thinking a lot about all that's happened in 2016 in my life. This year was pretty slow going in the book category. Maybe because this year has been the ye…

Book Release!!

Guess what guys??!! Weapon Icean is out!! It's out for real and I can't believe it!


It started out last November as just an idea. I wrote it for my 2015 nanowrimo and it has gone through almost 18 drafts. I spent all year working on it and waiting and waiting so impatiently for it to be ready and now it is! It happened so fast and I am super excited but also a little nervous. This has been a journey, if at sometimes difficult and frustrating but now all the time and effort and patience has paid off. I've dreamed of being a published author since I knew what the word author meant and now I am! I just hope you guys love reading it as much as I loved writing it!


And it's so fitting that I publish it the day I finish the first draft of the sequel. It's still messy and crazy and needs a lot of work but I can do it. I'm calling it Project Khione for now but the title might change later. This is the first step in my indie author journey and I am so excited to finally…
