I am developing a game plan to get back into the swing of things. If you know me, I like things in order as quickly as possible, and that's what I'm working towards. I've gotten all of my accounts back up, fixing things that need fixed, etc. And since that's all taken care of, I can now start publishing a few things that I said I would, but then, you know, I dropped off the face of the earth.
The first book to be published will be Frostbite (The Storm Saga #2.5). It's between The Hurricane, and the third book, which the title has not been released yet. That one is written, so that one will follow shortly I'm sure, but for now, focusing on Frostbite getting out there.
So stay tuned for all that info!! I am very thankful that Past Me was so organized, because Present Me would be even more stressed if Past Me hadn't been. So thank you, Past Me.

It's me Madison. Hard to believe right? I dropped off the face of the planet about three years ago. No warning, just....disappeared. I'm sorry about that. I should have said something, but to be honest, I was embarrassed. But I shouldn't be, so I'm going to share what all happened. (Edit: came to my attention from earlier posts, that I shared majority of this with you, though I don't recall it. But here it is again.)
You see, I've always struggled with anxiety. I've had it as long as I can remember, I remember having it before I knew what I had had a name. I also have OCD, which didn't help with the anxiety.
About three years ago, things just happened, all non harmful things, that made my anxiety flare up. It was bad. I couldn't do what I loved, which was being on here with you all, Twitter, writing, reading, hanging out with my friends. It took me an entire year, after struggling for months, and then getting medication, to get to a point where I could do simple things, like go out with friends, or just sit in my own house, and not feel like an anxiety attack was coming on.
Now, don't get me wrong, I still have the anxiety, it's still there, and I'm very much aware of it, and I battle it everyday, but I can manage it now. I'm a better person than I was before, more aware of what I want from life, I take every day as a gift, because that's what it is.
I want to encourage you to seek help if you need it for anything, may it be mental illness, or a physical illness, because they're all very real, and I would not be here if it wasn't for all the support I got. And, also, God helped me a whole lot. Through prayer and tears He brought me out of the worst of it. I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for Him.
I won't be jumping head first into things quite yet. The last time I actually finished a story was last summer. Haven't been able to finish anything since, but it's a great story, and I'm hoping...Maybe I'll share it with you all.
The Storm Saga, and the Two Rings Series are still around if you all still want to read them. Though, to be honest, they're kind of embarrassing now, compared to what I'm writing currently. But hey, that's progress.
I don't know about Stars, I may still release it, but I'm not sure. Sorry about all those who entered giveaways. I'm staring fresh, so I won't revisit any past giveaways and such. So I am very sorry if you entered something. I'll have new giveaways in the future, I promise!!
Be patient with me as I navigate things, as I've been gone a very long while. I've missed everyone, and I'm excited to be back. :)

How is everyone, by the way? The puppy keeps me away from all of you lovely people.

Halloween is my favorite holiday (aside from Thanksgiving). I love dressing up, that's my favorite part of the whole thing. And oh, the candy. Horror movies was never something I enjoyed, they scare the crap out of me, and I never watch them. BUT, I do love the dark. It's fascinating, and when I created my beings for my Two Rings series, one of them had to be of the dark. OverShadowers. And of course, they're counter parts, Undimmed.
To learn more about OverShadowers, check out, Shadow Future:

So, I am VERY excited to be doing it again this year! This would be my 4th year doing it, and I am really excited. :)
Are you doing NaNo? If so, what's your word goal? I'm going for the 50k if I can do it! Since I am getting a puppy and puppies take up a lot of time. ;)
As for my current WIP, if I could finish this book before November 1st, I would be doing NaNo. But, I have decided to not finish my current WIP, because I ended up hating it as I got into it. The characters were doing all sorts of things I didn't like, and if you are a writer, you will understand this. Characters don't do what we want, they do what they want. Simple. And the whole process of the book totally didn't go the way I wanted, BUT, that's okay. Because I got super far in it, almost 30k, which I am very proud of. And since my break from writing all those months ago, I'm very proud of myself. ^.^
So that being said, I am READY for NaNo! Let's do this thing!
PS: Here's a picture of my puppy to be:
Her name is Charlie. :) <3
