January Writing Update!

Hi everyone! So today is sort of a slow/weird day for me so I'm just going to give you guys an update on what's going on in my writerly life.

Weapon Icean is published as I'm sure you all know. It was a super exciting and long process that was so worth all the time and effort. Right now its up on for 12.00 and Kindle for 4.99. You can also get it on Kindle Unlimited so make sure to check that out. Also I just set it up for a countdown promotion but it has to be on KDP Select for at least 30 days before it can get that free promotion so it's set to start February 15th! February 15th it'll be $0.99. February 16th it'll be $1.99. On the 17th it'll be $2.99 and on the 18th it'll be 3.99. It ends February 19th so keep an eye out for that and I'll make sure to update my blog, Instagram, Facebook and all that to remind you guys. ;) It's my first promotion so I'm pretty excited to see what happen!

Weapon Icean 2 which I am calling Project Khione right now is underway. I finished the first draft for my 2016 Nanowrimo and I've gotten most all the revisions done and now I'm just figuring out the editing (which isn't my strong suit). Right now it's at 337 pages and 90,044 words which is a lot compared to the first one. I've had a blast writing it though. Sequels are hard but their also very exciting because the first book is just meeting the characters, the second book is getting to know them. And the third book? I am psyched and can't wait for that one! I have so many plans and I can't to see where Delphi and her friends take me. It'll be out and ready for reading probably later this year. Possibly way later like November or December so I'm really hoping I can get it out earlier. I'll keep you guys posted.

Tales of the Lonely, my short story collection is being looked at by a friend who's way better at grammar and editing than I am. It might take a little while to get back but it'll be worth the wait. I'm hoping to get that one published this year too. Possibly April-May and honestly I'm kind of giddy about coming up with a cover for this one since it holds four short stories all set in the same fantastical world with some seriously awesome characters (if I do say so myself).

Right now though, while I figure out Project Khione I'm in the middle of writing a book that does not have a name. I really need to come up with one though or at least something to call it other than the gypsy/vampire WIP. I have clocked in a lot of time researching the Roma gypsies and its been fun and interesting. I'm still only on the first draft and not even to the middle yet... these characters are taking their own sweet time figuring out what they want and what they don't want in their stories. But I'm super excited about this WIP and I plan for it to be a duology, so there'll be most definitely be a sequel which I am equally excited to write. (I'll probably end up making a whole post on my Roma gypsies/vampire findings from my research cuz I found some pretty interesting things).

And for now that's about it. That's everything that is going on. My brain is kind of full and so is my writing plate. There's also the fact that I'm taking a mandatory English class, Archaeology and Anthropology this semester which is super interesting and fun but also a lot to do. That and get ready for a whole lot of Disney pictures in February! :)
Cuz Disney haha

That's it for now. Hope you all have a great week! I may or may not post on Friday. It may be too busy to get a post up.

What's your current WIP right now?

Happy New Years!!

Happy New Years everyone! 2019 is officially here! Some parts of last year felt like they went by so slowly while other parts feel like they were a blur. But overall, 2018 was a good year and I have a feeling 2019 will be a good year too. 2019 is a new season of life for me and others and I'm so excited to see what God has planned for myself, friends and family.

I know I've already posted my goals for 2019 but there are a few more I want to add. Since writing the Looking Forward to 2019 post, I had a few epiphanies that I think are important.

First of all, one of the authors I follow on Instagram wrote a post today about the difference between dreams and goals. Goals are achievable. They can be accomplished. Dreams can be too, but sometimes certain dreams are out of our control and when we fail to accomplish that dream, we fail. She said how she really wanted to sell a book in 2019. To pitch a book to her agent and get it out there. But that's not a goal. That's a drea…

January 2019 Wrap-Up

Wow! The first month of the year is nearly over! I can't believe it's almost already February. Just one more month and it'll be my birthday!

With the end of January, I'm really starting to think about what I want to do this year, mostly concerning this blog and my writing and stuff. I want to change some things blogger-wise and grow my audience, though I'm still trying to brainstorm and figure out the best ways to do that. There are just a lot of thoughts and ideas floating around in my head right now that are hard to organize and put down on paper (or type out on keyboard), but I'm sure with all these ideas and thoughts, there will come lots more blog posts. So instead of trying to organize my messy thoughts right now, I think I'll just do my wrap-up same as usual.

January Writing: This month's writing has been good. December was a hard month for me. I was super burnt out and blocked in everything I did. Writing three different versions of my Peter Pan …

Friday in Review: Fictional Vacation/Would you Rather

Happy Friday! So, they awesome Lily Cat tagged me in this fictional vacation/would you rather challenge and I am so excited to do this. It sounds so fun!

Alright so here's the deal:

~ Include the graphic Madeline made.
~ Answer the Questions 
~ Tag some other people if you feel so inclined
Let's jump right into this! 
Would you rather... 
Train with demigods for the summer at Camp Halfblood OR attend Hogwarts to learn some spells for a semester?
How is this even a question? ;) Camp Halfblood of course! I adore the Percy Jackson series, so I would do just about anything to be a halfblood for the Summer. The real question is, who would my parent be?? My enneagram four side who loves being special and different wants me to be a kid of one of the big three... maybe Hades just to make myself extra special and unique from everyone else ;) But most likely I'd end up being like a Posiedon kid... or if we're being real probably Apollo cuz I'm a writer and all that, even though …
