Are we excited yet? Cover art coming next week! BB/Chan Eil Eagal Orm
Yep. It's me. Morning, everyone. Had some time before I left for work and thought I'd make a post here. Despite my anxiety, I know that the Heroes of Avoch series is good. It's well written, the cover is amazing, and has a wide reader appeal. My editor at CJM didn't know what D&D was, … Continue reading Confidence vs. Name Recognition
I have to apologize. I knew I hadn't posted for a while but didn't realize it'd been over 2 months until this morning! Things have been...busy. I got laid off from my job, found another, and had to delay the start due to a 2nd bout with COVID in 3 months. 0/10, do not recommend. … Continue reading My bad!
Morning, everyone. I took a day off work. I wasn't feeling 100%, hadn't slept well, and had a headache that begged me not to get out of bed. When I finally did, I took care of a bunch of stuff that I haven't had time to do. Once I finish this post, I'm digging into … Continue reading A snail’s pace isn’t bad

Well, it happened. I figured it would, eventually. I've contracted COVID. Can I pinpoint where? Not with certainty, but I have ideas. Hubby has been testing negative, was home this week for vacation anyway. Being that I'm double vaccinated & double boosted, my symptoms have been mild. I woke up on Tuesday morning with a … Continue reading 2 years, 3 months…and my luck runs out
Avoch, Black Isle, Scotland Happy Saturday! I've been BUSY. I finished up 'Sword & Soul' and sent it off to Creative James Media. 'Scales & Stingers' is almost through the copy/line edit phase. 'Shield & Scepter' is about to go to the content editor. I'm gathering things I need for events. A new banner has … Continue reading The Scotland Connection
A thing happened yesterday. Two years of my writing life came to an end. 'Sword & Soul' was sent to Creative James Media. Thia, Jinaari, Adam, and Caelynn's story is now complete. Yes, I know I typed 'The End' a few weeks ago. That was the soft closure. It went to my betas, who added … Continue reading Book hangovers are real
Sidhe viewpoint, Scotland Deep breath in, release slowly. Find my center, my calm. This post is going to contain some personal experiences dealing with sexual assault and being raised by a narcissistic mother. If these things are problematic for you, I understand if you want to stop reading now. Words have power. And I need … Continue reading Anxiety, writing, and learned behavior
