SPFBO5 Interviews for Torn Apart + Updates

07/22/2019

Torn Apart is an entry in this year’s Self-Published Fantasy Blog-Off (SPFBO) and has recently been featured in a couple of new interviews.

You can read an author interview from the Qwillery here.

And you can read an interview of the character, Halea, from Torn Apart at The Protagonist Speaks here.

In other news, I’ve added a list of name pronunciations for the Convergence series to the Extras page.

Wolfmother, book three of Convergence, is currently at about 42%, and if the pace continues, I should have it finished before the end of the year, and I hope to release it in late spring or summer of 2020, so be sure to follow this blog for updates and the official release date.

As for new blog content, I’m currently very busy working on Wolfmother, so the blog has sort of taken a backseat. I have a huge list of topics that I’d like to write for the blog, but I’m not sure when I’m going to have a moment to break away from story writing to make new blog posts. My story writing comes first, and I don’t want to spoil the good momentum I’ve been having with Convergence to work on the blog at the moment, but I will get back to it as soon as I can.

After many years of hardship and separation, Halea has become Varg’s mate, and life should be perfect, but it isn’t. She can’t escape the feeling that the Chaos Dimension will someday return, and with Lord Anshar gone, who will protect them? Though no longer a priestess, she cannot ignore the call of the goddess that is warning her of the storm ahead. When the tears return, she soon discovers that Lord Anshar is alive, but he is not the same; the Chaos has driven him mad and now he seeks to kill every priestess and claim Halea for his own. Varg was not able to defeat the dragon therian the last time they battled, but now he must find a way to master his sword, the Fang, or risk losing Halea forever. Varg’s worst nightmare may become a reality when the Swordmaster Crow foretells of Halea’s death. Together they must find a way to defeat the Dragon Lord before he summons another convergence that will bring an end to their world.

PaperBlanks Planner Review

02/25/2019

Now if you’ve seen my previous review on my favorite pens, you’ll know that I LOVE stationery and office supplies. That love also extends to Planners.

Fun fact, I have consistently kept a planner ever since I was 13 years old. Nevermind how old I am now, but let’s just say I’ve been keeping a planner for a very long time. (God, I’m old!). For countless ages…er I mean years, I always kept my schedule organized in a paper planner that I carried on my person wherever I went. (Usually lovingly customized with fiesta colored pens, random doodles, and bizarre stickers, but dammit that’s how I rocked!). Then in 2015, I decided it was time to give up my beloved paper planner which took up space and added weight to my already overloaded purse, and I decided to keep my schedule digitally on the planner widget that came with my Samsung phone. From 2015 until recently, that was the only planner I carried.

But it just wasn’t the same.

A Review of Pilot Varsity Pens

1/7/2019

As a writer, there are certain things I love; libraries, the smell of books, old typewriters, stationery, leather-bound journals, and pens.

God, I love me some nice ass pens.

Admittedly, I do almost all my writing on my computer, like most writers these days, but I still leap at any chance to use pens and stationery. Hell, I still write snail mail, just because it’s more fun and personal than email. It’s so exciting to get a REAL letter in the mail, instead of the usual credit card offers, bills, and retail flyers. (I hate that crap).

Because of my love for office supplies, I am what is known as a pen snob. And of all the many, many different types and brands of pens, I’ve tried. I would have to say Pilot’s Varsity pens are my absolute favorite.
