Injured! [Again]

So, uh, I tore my left rotator cuff a few days ago, and now my arm is in a sling. Pro: It was my left, so I can still draw. Con: Can’t type. [Doing this single-handed right now, so it’s short.] So if you don’t hear from me for a few weeks, don’t be horribly […]

Atlantis: TVC Volume #2 is Now Available!

It’s here, it’s here! It’s release day! I am absolutely floored that I got it done on time. I didn’t hit my original end of summer deadline, but I did make my fall one, and it feels good. I hope you all enjoy volume #2! As for me, I’m taking the rest of the holiday […]

Second Chances

One of the awesome parts of self-publishing is the ability to manage everything yourself. One of the horrible parts of it is the ability to manage everything yourself. So, you have to own any awful decisions you make. The original cover of Atlantis: TVC volume #1 was a debacle. I originally made my artwork too […]

Anyone Have a Cursed Spinning Wheel I Could Borrow?

I am so insanely tired. We finished moving in a few days ago, and there is a mountain of things sitting in my living room, waiting to go into storage or the trash. We accidentally left behind not just one, but both of our dining room tables. [But brought the chairs, somehow.] We have people […]

Character Boards

When I write, sometimes my mind wanders around. I don’t know if other authors have this problem, but I’ll be in the middle of a scene when suddenly I’ll wonder if the character who is speaking would prefer Coke or Pepsi; whether or not they would read a certain book, or if they would like […]

Where the [Not So] Wild Things Are…

Because the continent of Atlantis is technically in our timeline–and has magic–deciding on what the flora and fauna balance should be has been a struggle. On one hand, I want it to fit in with the rest of the world and have some of the normal things found natively in other biomes, such as squirrels, […]

Rambling, Sinus Pressure, & Other Annoyances

Happy Friday! Well, it’s not so much a “happy” Friday for me–the whole family is sick with a head cold, so we’re all cranky and stuffed up and generally miserable. Boo. I am dead tired but can’t sleep due to congestion. This means I finished a picture I’ve been working on for the past week […]

Spring Sale [and a FREE Atlantis Wallpaper!]

Sorry if you saw the front page of the site doing weird things last night… I was updating and a table broke. It’s all fixed now! Anyway, I fully intended to do this over Easter weekend, but it didn’t update until today, so… uh… Easter Weekend Spring Special! The first volume of Atlantis: The Visionary […]

E-books, Images, and You

Very self-help-y, right? If you are planning on adding images to your e-book, then this is the place to be. All of my books are illustrated, and it was a pain trying to figure out how to format images. I did all my images one way, because one site said so, but it turned out […]
