Ashes Swept had an amazing launch and has already sold more copies than I ever expected. With one book behind me, I’m looking ahead to the future! This month, I’m plotting out my book for NaNoWriMo 2017, and I’ll start writing that on November 1st. Then, in December, I will begin draft three of the first novel I wrote, all the way back in 2009. If all goes well, I’ll be ready to publish during the second half of 2018.

Launch week is almost here! Just a couple more days and the festivities will begin. You can follow along on facebook or check back here for a re-cap at the end of next week. Then, on September 29th, Ashes Swept will be available for purchase at!

Draft four is finished and going back out to my team soon. Hopefully I won’t have too many changes to make, and then I can just focus on polishing. I’m hoping to have a better idea of the publication timeline in the next month or so. We’re getting close!

Still plugging away on the edit, along with help from my amazing CPs, STH and Ely. I’m hoping to be done with this edit by the end of February, when I’ll move into the polishing phase. By then I’ll have a better idea of when I can start with the really fun stuff!

Draft four is underway after a major structural overhaul. Publication has been moved to 2017, but that just means the fun stuff is still yet to come. I hope you’ll stick around until then!

Draft three is slow going, but I’m making progress and am getting lots of great notes from my critique partners. In other news, I should have a cover sometime this spring, and I’ve just launched my monthly newsletter, Writing in the Blue.

Working on draft three of my novel with help from a new critique partner. I’m really looking forward to getting through this draft so I can start on the really fun stuff.
