Finish Line

I have so much good news to report! For starters, we found a place to live! We move in the second week of September. Because of this my mood improved, and I stated writing like a person possessed–so much that I finished the book yesterday! The first draft of Atlantis: TVC Volume #2 is now […]

The Treasures of Maps

It’s funny how varied the places are from which we look back. Sometimes it’s merely a few months; maybe a few years. Other times, it’s seventeen years and it completely takes you by surprise. I’m pretty sure I’ve talked about how Atlantis: TVC was originally conceived while I was in high school, in geography class; […]

Beaches, Buzzfeed, and [Character] Bios

My mother, my aunt, and I took my daughter and my nephew to the lake on Saturday. I’ve been stuck for a while on a particular scene in volume #2, so while my mom and I were bobbing out by the swim boundary of the cove I decided to see if she had any ideas […]

Decisions, Reviews, and Promotional Copies

I’m sitting here, trying to decide if I want to make Atlantis: TVC Volume #1 exclusive to Amazon for 90 days. On the plus side, it would be great for getting it out there in the spotlight. I haven’t had much success with any online or paid advertising–only word of mouth seems to be working […]

Atlantis: TVC is Now Available on Amazon

Volume #1 rolled out worldwide this morning, and I couldn’t be happier. Just in time for the weekend!   You can check it out, sample it, [though there are sample chapters here too, ha ha.] and if you love it, buy it! [and recommending it to your friends doesn’t hurt, either!] Atlantis: The Visionary Continent […]

Atlantis: TVC Volume #1 is Now Available!

It’s out, it’s out! It’s finally here! So much work has gone into this–sleepless nights, long days banging my head against a wall during editing, and hours spent staring at blank pages. This is only the first step, as I am not done with Atlantis yet, but it’s a huge milestone for me. Thank you […]

Uh, About That…

So I went to submit the final edition of Atlantis: TVC #1 a few days ago, and uh, submitted an old test draft on accident. I didn’t realize it until Sunday night when I went to check things over before today’s launch, and opened up the preview. I hurriedly re-submitted the final version on the […]

Bugbears and Naked Cannonballs

Social media is a bit of a bugbear for me. While I get [and enjoy] Facebook, and like keeping a blog, I find something simple like Twitter just baffles me. I mean, I understand the base concept–say something meaningful in a limited amount of words. Abridgment. I totally get that. I don’t understand how it […]

It’s Official!

The official release date of Atlantis: The Visionary Continent Volume #1 is March 17th. So excited! So scared. You can pre-order it now! Check it out at Kobo, iBooks, and Barnes & Noble! I really am kind of freaking out. I’ve had little sleep, my daughter punched me in the eye early this morning after […]
