This year Camp Nanowrimo is already making me do great things. I finished the rough draft of Scavengers (YAY! You can even see that it's moved from my Works in Progress to Novels!) because I needed it to be finished before I started camp. I had a whole 2 days to spare, and I decided to use them … Continue reading hi-ho it’s off to camp i go
You'd think, after having four giant snowstorms in as many weeks and getting a number of days off from work for that very reason, with nothing to do other than sit in my apartment alone, that I would have done MUCH more writing than I have. Nope. Yesterday cabin fever set in and I had … Continue reading writing weather?
Despite taking a week off to work on Scavengers, I still have to push the pub date back (again). So, as a thank you for waiting patiently, I give you the first chapter! -1- I was already having a pretty bad couple of days before I got kidnapped. Not that my life was really all … Continue reading Scavengers, Chapter 1
I talk a little about my inspiration for the first book in the Wolf Point series over on the Hitchhikers page, but as I continue the series I feel the need to talk about an inspiration that has actually helped me to build the world of the Wolf Point series. One day, I was looking … Continue reading inspirations: wolf point
Scavengers finally has a cover! This took me a long time... mostly due to issues getting permission to use images. For both Hitchhikers and Dreamwalkers, I was able to find images over at sxc.hu and Flickr, and the photographers got back to me fairly quickly. Both of the images I used for this cover were … Continue reading Scavengers cover reveal!

The Beast is the origin story of Geo, the oldest known werewolf. This is the first of … Continue reading forgot to mention…
This year's resolution is to write 500 words a day - that's 1/3 of what I normally churn out a day during Nanowrimo, which makes it much more attainable. I have several other writing-related goals for 2014: to finish and publish Dreamwalkers to finalize the print edition of Hitchhikers and offer a giveaway or two … Continue reading new year’s resolution and 2013 stats
Since the end of Camp Nanowrimo - or, let's face it, midway through Camp Nanowrimo - I haven't been doing a whole lot of writing. I did get a good 28,000+ words written on Scavengers, but I got sidetracked when I realized that my map for Scavengers was way off from my map for Hitchhikers. … Continue reading what i’ve been up to
Dear Ryan, The events of last night caught me by surprise. I was on a roll, writing far more than the expected 1,667 daily word count. I was feeling positive that I might be able to catch up (I'm still 7,000 words behind). And there it was: the halfway mark, right within my reach - … Continue reading a letter to the character I just killed off
(and also a reminder: my two novels, Bethany Caleb and The Art Kids, are both free on Amazon all weekend!) After the July 4th holiday kicked my ass, word-count-wise, I'm sorta back on track with Camp Nanowrimo. At least, I wrote almost twice the daily recommended word count on Sunday, and have been able to … Continue reading catching up
