Happy Patreoniversary!! (okay, not yet, but soon!)

August marks my 1 year Patreoniversary! When I began my story subscription back in 2013, I knew that some of my friends and long-time readers would support the project. Either they liked my writing, or they liked me, or they felt badly that I was facing dental surgery with no real way to cover the…

Okay, look. I lied. Also, Camp NaNoWriMo!

In my last post, I mentioned that I’d be offering a stand-alone story for June’s installment. I like the idea of stand alone stories to allow you, my supporters, a chance to be free of prolonged suspense, to allow you a chance of a smaller time commitment, and also, to remind myself that that I can,…

When Worlds Collide Final Installment, and info about the new story.

The last section of When Worlds Collide is in the hands of my editor, and will be coming back for final fixes today. *rubs hands gleefully*. I’m super excited about this novella, and I’m grateful for all the positive feedback I’ve been getting. There will be two other stories in this series, and the first…

When Worlds Collide* — an excerpt

“So . . .” Meliah groped for words. Usually she wasn’t unnerved by silence, but this was a tense silence, the kind you wanted to break, the kind that got heavier and heavier the longer it stretched on. They were both, she realized, extremely nervous. Which made her want to laugh. What the hell was…

Story Subscription News, Writing News, Read All The Things!

By now, those of you who are already signed up for my Story Subscription will have received the twelfth, and final chapter in A Marriage of Land and Sea. From the bottom of my heart: thank you. Being able to check this particular story off my to-write list is rewarding for so many reasons. Roern…

Resolutions (TPE Week One)

(First, I’m so glad to see that someone has created this project. Not sure how often I’ll participate, but I glad to see other people writing on the topics. The PBP was a fun way to become exposed to more writers, and I hope this will continue, so yay!!) New Year’s Resolutions have never been…

Looking Back at 2014, with runes!

I am lifting this Runic Reflection right out of Beth’s blog, because I totally can. You should, too. 1.Fehu and Uruz: How has abundance manifested in my life this year? Where is my strength? I had plans for 2014, but it turns out 2014 had plans for me, too. The abundance I wanted, going in, was…

A Marriage of Land and Sea

Roern grew up knowing he was different – that was just part of being fated to become Groom to the Land. He loved his family, loved his place in the sea, but longed for the day when he could claim his Bride and settle in to the life destiny told him he would have. Thalia,…

A Marriage of Land and Sea

We’re coming upon the close of the year, and my mind is turned toward the upcoming projects for 2015. The support my Story Subscription received in six short months has been incredible and, to be honest, a bit unexpected. I knew there were a small number of people I was pretty sure I could count…

Keeping it Real — Proofreading? Sometimes I suck at it.

All in all I think I do pretty well. My proofreading habits are: write the thing. Read the thing. Make changes. Read the thing out loud for story time. Make the changes. Read the thing again. Submit/release/whatnot. This month’s installment of my Story Subscription made it out of my inbox to yours with way more…

Spirit Touched excerpt

reminder: it’s mine, all mine, not yours, all mine! That said, here’s an excerpt: Cloaking myself was a small matter. Shadows lent themselves to me, borrowed from the hardapple trees, from the clouds overhead that blocked the sun. Cloaking myself in my own shadow would have been easier yet, but I couldn’t wait for her…

Story Subscription has gone out!

It went out late this time (does this balance out with time it went out a day early?) but it has left the nest, and those of you signed up for it should have it in your in-boxes by now. If you don’t, please let me know, and I’ll resend! A Reminder, and a call…
