If you were looking for another way to support my work without supporting huge publishers, I have posted my stories on Simily! Not all of them are available but I’m slowly adding them.
This doesn’t mean I’ll be removing my stories from other platforms. I know there are people who don’t want to or can’t use Amazon or other big retailers for various reasons. It’s a subscription type site so there are plenty of other authors to see as well! Click here to check it out!
I totally forgot to bring my Freewrite Traveler to work with me so I couldn’t write all day. Once I got home, whatever plans I had for this story flew out of my brain. Now I’m back to picking at it until things click back into place.
Luckily for me, sitting there on the bike did shake some things loose. I turned down the resistance so I could go faster and just let the time go by as I wrote. Part of me is wondering if I should get back on the treadmill but just set it really slow so I can keep writing but I worry about not burning enough calories since I’d be walking so slowly. Or maybe that would be better for my knees… If I did that, I certainly wouldn’t use Zombies Run for those workouts. It would ruin my stats.
I am anxious to get back to running but taking this time to write has helped. I’m still not making a lot of money but I’ve finally gotten to the point where I don’t go a month with no sales at all. Maybe it’s not a good idea to so vastly alter my health goals around making money but the bank doesn’t care if I’m fat or thin, just as long as I pay the mortgage.
The first part of “Dahlia” is all done and ready for purchase! Click here or the picture above. Here’s the quick blurb:
Dahlia has a peaceful life working for a recycling company and coming home to her loving wife. But when that peace is shattered, a new terrible world is opened up, a dark past is revealed, and a dangerous quest begins.
I’m super excited to put this one out there. I hope you enjoy it!
After publishing a bunch of new stories, it was high time I updated my website. If you want a one stop shop for all of my work, this is the place to go. I can’t believe how many I’d missed but it’s all there now; including the forthcoming “Dahlia: Part One.” Feel free to check it out!
The rough draft of Dahlia is done and this is going to be the cover! I may tweak the font and I’m considering either a subtitle or series name but I wanted to show this off! And show that I’m not slacking on my writing or just talking about it without any results.
I’m thinking this series will be three parts but depending on the flow, that my change. My original outline was four parts but I already changed that. That’s usually why I don’t outline… But I can’t deny my output has increased overall with a plan in place; even if I don’t follow it.
I don’t have a release date since I’m still editing to make sure it flows right and has no typos. I’ll post that as soon as I know.
It’s been a while since I’ve done an update but I have been working. I haven’t published since Djinn 2 and Fruit of the Dead 2, but I have been hard at work re-writing and expanding a short story I wrote in college called “Dahlia.” Instead of a couple-page drabble, I’m going to turn it into either a full novel or a multi-part series. I have to see how the writing goes.
As you can see from the picture, I’m 7k deep and the story is progressing nicely. I hesitate to give a timeline because that totally depends on if I hit a roadblock or have a particularly productive streak of days. I do already have a cover for it but I’ll hold off on posting it until the story is close to being published. I’ll probably have to tweak the design a bit once more of the story is done.
Fruit of the Dead is a series I started back in 2018 and legitimately went numb on until recently. Yes, I should have a publishing schedule but I honestly had no clue where to go next at the time. But, I’ve been doing a lot of brainstorming and prompt mining and my general output has been increasing. So, the second episode is in the absolute last stage of editing and will be up later this week!
Yes, I’ve been quiet lately but it’s for a good reason! I stopped doing reviews for a bit so I could work on this story and it’s all ready!Djinn 2: Wendigo is the sequel to Djinn, and has the same main two characters but a new enemy! It will be released on March 4, 2021.
I also have a rough draft of the next part of Fruit of the Dead that I’m working on and I hope to have that out before the end of March. I won’t leave the blog idle; I have a bunch of reviews ready to type up.
I have been working on more stories and while I had to put my longer-form stuff aside for a bit, I have been working on some shorter material! And what I’ll be publishing next is part two of Fruit of the Dead! It’s been a while and I needed to get back to working on this series and get some more parts in before I start outlining the next Go Away Girls book.
Yeah, I’m outlining now. I’m usually a pantser, but this is helping me get to my goal of publishing more often. And if I’m able to write faster, I’ll have time to read more and finally get my Kindle to stop showing that error message…
I have more reviews to post but I’ll keep everyone updated on the new releases and my progress!
