Updates, News and a few Giveaways

October has been a busy month, so I'm going to keep this post short but sweet. 


I heard from my publisher. ENTWINED, book three in the Embrace series, has a target release date of Spring 2015. I'm super excited to get the first round of edits back from my editor. My guess is I won't see them for several weeks. More time to finish that WIP. =)

Speaking of that, most my writing time has been devoted to re-writing my YA realistic fiction. I'm happy with the changes to the characters and the plot. I hope to have the first draft completed by the end of November.

Find me and a couple demon friends:



I was interview over at The Book Machine. If you have a few minutes, stop by and say hi.

Patience Does Pay Off : an #IWSG Post




October marks the one year anniversary of the  Insecure Writer's Support Group website. A big thanks to Alex Cavanaugh and the wonderful administrators who keep the site running! Since today is the first Wednesday of the moths, it's time to share insecurities or encouraging words. Learn more about the group here.



Those nasty insecurities of mine popped into my head quite often over the last couple months. Will I ever finish the first draft of my work-in-progress? Will my publisher pick up the third book in my series? Will more readers find my published novels? Will the novel out on submission find a good home?

It's the things I can't control that drive me crazy. Thankfully, I could control one of the items in that list. Several deep breaths and self-prep talks (and okay, a little lot of whining) helped to keep my butt in chair and my fingers on the keyboard.

I'm happy to say that patience (or more accurately--me being forced to be patient) paid off. I finished that first draft. Omnific Publishing snatch up book three. Readers are finding my published novels. And, as for the last item in my list, I'm hopeful that answer will be yes, because I'm dying to share that book with readers everywhere.

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Alex and the members of IWSG for their encouraging words and for sharing their stories and advice over the years. It nice to know I have a place to turn to when I need a little push.

How'd you do last month? Have you added to your word count? Any good news to share?


(P.S. There's a couple giveaways going on this week. Page down to earlier posts for details.)
