So you’ve stumbled into my lair. Thankfully, I’m arachnophobic, so I’ll spare you the typical jokes.
Who am I? What is this blog about? Well, the long-story short is I’m a YA fantasy writer. Part of the purpose of this blog is to have a place for people who enjoy my books to poke around and see what I’m working on.
If you hover over or click on My Books above, you’ll find what I’ve currently published, all on Kindle with only full-length novellas/novels available in paperback. If you hover over it, it’ll divide the stories by world, which so far is Saveer/Eresith, Arcana Realms, and Other. I also list what I’m currently working on at the bottom of this post, so check down there if you are curious! Saveer/Eresith Extras, which is anything I’ve done for those books like clothes designs and maps, is attached to the page for those books, just hover over it on the menu and it should pop up. Also under that tab are my Extra Projects, which is almost exactly what it says on the tin. So far, that’s Hurrocks Fardel: Swan Maidens, which is… a bit of a story, so stick with me. About a year ago, I entered a contest for the webcomic and won. Because Eira and her guard are my creations and I think I might do something with them someday, I’ve added them to the site.
The next three tabs are the ones you’ll find the most information under. Each week, I post a review about a book, movie, or the occasional TV show or my thoughts on something about RPGs and writing. By clicking on Reviews, you’ll get every blog post under the review category, or you can hover over it and pick which kind of review you would like to read. If you click on RPG and Writing, you will get every blog post under those categories, or you can hover and again, pick which kind interests you. I try to rotate around so they all get equal love, but when it comes to reviews, it really just depends on what I’m read/watching at the time. Then for roughly one month of the year, I pause everything and publicly post an on-going NaNoWriMo project, Nuzlocke: Heir to the Sky, which is a Nuzlocke run of the Pokemon X video game. There’s a landing page, but also specifically recaps of prior years (written in October a year later), character profiles, and the Nuzlocke tag of blog posts if you just want to navigate that way.
What, you still want to know more about me? Well, okay… If you click on About Me, you’ll get my auto-biography blurb (not horrifically long, I promise) that also links to my copyediting business, In the Corner Editing. It’s double listed, just in case you don’t think to click on it (because not all menus are self-evident, and I try to be kind). Right now, I’m not looking for more clients, but that could change in the future. I also have an FAQ section built, though it is currently blank as I wait to hear any questions people might have about me. If you hover over the About Me tab, you’ll see it, along with my Current Projects page which tells you what is going on for me as a writer right now. Lastly, News has all the recent happenings around the site or dealing with my writing.
Thanks for stopping by!
Writing Sun’s Guard: Page (Book Two in this series set in the Arcana Realms universe)
What it’s about:
After dealing with the goblins and a few other pests that have popped up, Caley finally has some training under her belt…sorta. If she could get that pesky defense mechanism under control before she accidentally takes someone’s head off, she’d feel better about it. But there isn’t time for finagling as something new is sniffing around her protections for Sunny, and this time it seems like it’s a lot smarter than the goblins were. Caley is going to have to rely on her friends for help, though this might be tricky with split loyalties. And to make matters even worse, Aunt Claire has decided she wants to try custody again…and Caley can’t leave now!
On deck–White Dragon, Black Lark, a stand-alone novel(la)
What it’s about:
There is a tradition that the queens and princesses keep from their husbands and fathers, with the help of trusted knights. Dame Lyall of Baesa is happy to serve, even with having never met the children of her king and queen. However, Princess Armella of Viarwen does not want to follow through with this time-honored tradition, and in fact is forced into it by her mother. Lyall finds out that Armella is not the typical princess, for a lot of reasons, and something is rotten within the royal court. However, rooting it out in her current form is going to be…difficult…since she can’t even fit through a door.
