Time for a change!
I want to try a new self-pub company. So I’m currently searching around for other sites like create space for my high fantasy – Wonderlost. It’s in its last phases and soon to be professionally edited sometime this month or the next. The first of two books. Currently at 66860k words and for some reason at 374 pages. I am going through it with a fine toothed-comb to figure out why my formatting is all screwed up. The cover is going to be SUPER UNIQUE but it hasn’t been finalized as I’m still trying to get all the elements together for it. Designed by moi!
My blurb is still being worked on, but here’s what I have –
Today was Tirin Desgjin’s birthday. The one that made her officially an adult. Not that it mattered as being the only human in an elven province did not grant her any favors. All she wanted was to be accepted. Having never met another Human, being elf-like was all she knew. But her birthday brings circumstances she didn’t figure in. Elven rituals would advertise her magyk and humans with magyk wasn’t something to celebrate. On top of that was the dramatics brought on by one of her so called suitors, her self-appointed guard and the truth about her ‘adoptive father’. As she tries to escape the growing problems by making her way out of the elven city she is accidentally kidnapped and then given to a mad prince who exposes her to an old enemy of her elven home. As this old enemy makes the attempt to ‘rescue’ her for his own purposes, her father and tentative friends come to her true rescue. But upon retrieval they are violently separated again as they face the old enemy and his minions.
I’m excited to get it out and as much as I have worked on it I hope to get many upon many reviews back! I pride myself on being different as far as story-line and characters. But the main thing is the enjoyment of others and thier feedback so I can make my work better!
Here’s to hearing from y’all!
I have mapped out the next seven chapters to the second book in the Mostly Human series, the next five chapters in the third book for the Red Summer series. I have even started on the third chapter for the second book to my Wonderlost story. But for the past few days, there has been no writing. in fact a SERIOUS lack thereof. I created bracelets and caught up on Steven Universe, Heroes, Started watching Orange is the new Black, even! Where has my motivation gone and how do I get it back?
I’m no longer rushing myself to push out four books… I think that was part of the problem too. Trying to concentrate on one story at a time. That’s still difficult. I need some new inspirational music. Last year it was Florance + the Machine and John Legend. Chris Cornell is okay and I really love the new Jill Scott. Alabama Shakes didn’t do it and neither is Alice Russell. Anybody got some new music for me to try?

His passion for writing stayed with him throughout his business life, and he started writing his first book in 1993. He published, How To Find A Job: When There Are No Jobs in December 2011. The book was an instant success, and hit #1 on Amazon’s bestseller list for career and job hunting books in March 2012.
It was a magical time–a two pedal world, when bicycles weren’t just a toy–they were a kid’s chief mode of transportation. A coming of age story about the adventurous life of a boy growing up during the 1950’s through the early 70’s in a Midwestern town. Discipline was harsh, supervision often rare, and adventure was high.
I finally took the plunge in 2013 and published my first novel, a young adult urban fantasy titled “Connor”. Since then I’ve published a “Madame Lilly” series of which Vol 3 “The Time of Sanura” has been chosen as 2015 Kindle Book Awards semi-finalists under Suspense/Horror. So now I stay locked up in my office in Colorado spinning more tales.

Madame Lilly journeys back in time to her great-grandmother’s era, the time of Sanura.

By the hand of a mysterious being, Elijah, Lilly is transported into the past to witness the dark path Sanura chose—ultimately leading to her demise.
Sanura fights to deny her ability to see the non-living, but the more she refuses the sight, the more the dead flock to her. A dreadful accident takes place, forcing her to finally accept her once unwanted gift. She soon welcomes the dead.
“Not one girl here worth taking will accept any of our invitations to the St. Valentine’s Day ball, until you’ve chosen your date,” Owen addressed his friend, who had arrived at the university under a royal flag a few months before, his wind-blown, dark hair almost matching the mane of his black stallion. “Last year we were the top choices, but now, all the girls are waiting for you.”
Recognizing his responsibility to choose, Garrett’s gaze traveled around the room, finally settling on the one who had captured his affections.
My book, The Dead Game, has dead bodies and suspects like a traditional murder mystery. However, it also has humans, vampires, and vampire derivatives. And don’t forget the haunted house–we must have one of these.
Can you feel your heart beating? Is it beating too fast? Do you feel trapped? This
is because you are. You’re standing in a pool of water, in the basement of End
House, wearing your party clothes. But there is no party, no host and no
guests. The door behind you locks shut. The only way is forward, through the
falling cages with their sharp edges, ready to ensnare their next victim.
Circular saws begin to descend, looking for heads to slice off.
Meanwhile, Linda is upstairs with the rest of her friends being pursued by creatures
through revolving rooms. Or are they illusions? What should she do?
