I’m Back!

Well, I know it’s been a LONG time since I’ve posted anything. I’ve been on hiatus a bit and it’s time I get back in the game.

I’m still writing. There’s nothing on this planet that could keep me from pouring my heart and soul onto the pages of the computer screen or one of the many notebooks I have on my desk. I actually have finished a project I’ve been working on for a while now and my next plan is to submit the dreaded query letter off to Agents. Of course, I have to write the damn thing first!

In the meantime, I submitted two short stories to online magazines in the hopes of getting somewhere with publication. I was nervous and a little hesitant when I hit that “submit” button, but I did it and I smiled about it. Now, it’s time to way which is never the easiest thing to do. I’m pretty sure all writers are impatient and demand a respond, I don’t know, like NOW!

I’m planning to work on more short stories as well as my longer projects, so that part of my life has not changed. I guess, I just realized that I need to get serious again about this whole getting published thing and I need to put my writing out there. There’s no better way to do that than to submit some short stories I’ve been hoarding for a while.

So, anyway, wish me luck!

Going Strong

I feel like I’ve been getting a lot accomplished lately. Not on the publishing end of things, but on the writing end. My current project (which happens to be the only one I’m working on at the moment and that’s a first for me) is going great. I’m 22 chapters and 40,000 words in. I always set a goal for each of my books and my goal for this one is 75,000 words. I shouldn’t have any problem getting there.

On another note, I signed up for not one, but two different programs this year. As an introvert, I’m actually going out of my way to be interactive with others in my local writing community and enrolled in a one day book publishing class at the community college in my town. It’s only two hours long and won’t happen until October, but I’m already excited.

I also registered for the ShowMeWriters Conference this year. This will be the first writer’s conference I’ve ever attended. I’m nervous, excited, and totally looking forward to October this year. This definitely won’t be the only conference I plan to attend. I’ll have to stick with ones that are closer to my home town, but no matter what, they’ll be worth going to.

As for the publishing end of my plans, my goal is to learn as much as I can about the profession and marketing in order to become successful at this. It’s always been a dream of mine to see my book on a bookstore shelf and dammit it’s going to happen one day.

So, that’s my rant for the day. Hope you enjoyed it!

My Upcoming Publishing Endeavor

Hello world,

I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything, but I’m still alive and still writing strong. I have an announcement to make!

This year I have a goal set in mind to finally publish one of my books, Eternity. This one has been finished for a bit now and is in desperate need of being read by the world. I’ll have to go back through and edit a few things, fix some glitches, and get my beta readers’ feedback. I don’t have an exact timeline for this one to be out, but my goal is to have it ready by the end of the year. I’ll keep my fans updated. It’s been a while since I’ve published anything and I feel the need to do so.

So, for those of you who love reading fiction books that are suspenseful, adventurous, and also have a hint of science fiction and time-travel, then you’ll love Eternity. You’ll follow the tale of Calvin Montague on her journey of changing her life and becoming a person her own brother doesn’t recognize. She takes over the country and follows what she believes is the right path to take. (I’ll give out more details later on, but here’s a taste of what is going on.)

Well, that’s all for tonight. I’m looking forward to this endeavor and hope the rest of you are as well.
