#ThatMomentWhenYouRealizeYouWontBeFinishingNaNo

So...the hashtag says it all. I got my puppy at the beginning of November, and I didn't have time to write at all. Then things settled in, and I got a lot of work done, then I didn't.

Let's just say...I'm sad. My fourth year and I won't be able to finish. I know a lot of people don't end up finishing, and that's okay. I just really wanted to do it agian this year, BUT, my puppy is very important to me, and I will finish this book, I won't give up on it. :)

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

Romancing Halloween Blog Hop! Oct. 25th - Nov. 1st!



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:

Current WIP, and NaNo!!!!!

As you all know, I love NaNo. It's the highlight of my writing year. I love being pressured to write all the words and reach my goal!

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

Frostbite - Coming December 20th

That's right, a new book. Woah, boom, bang, pow!

It's the book that comes right after The Hurricane, The Storm Saga Book 2. It's about five years later, and it's from Felix's POV.

You're excited now, aren't you?

The summary is highlighted in white, to avoid spoilers, aren't I nice?

Things have gone smoothly for the Walters after they had their two children, Nevaeh and Zachary. No signs of powers, and no government agents coming after their family. It's normal, Felix has a job, and Millicent watches the children. But when Millicent gets an offer she doesn't want to refuse, and Felix tells her that it's not a good idea, the two start to fight, and the family seems to be falling apart bit by bit. Felix tries to fix the problem, tries to make things better, but Millicent doesn't have it.

When Millicent leaves, and Felix is left alone, it's up to their children to bring them together again, but not in a way anyone was excepting.

And here is the gorgeous cover that Hope made for it last minute!!


Frostbite will be out on the 20th of December! Just around the time snow comes along. Hehe. ;)

STARS - Cover Reveal! + Giveaway!

It's the moment you've all been waiting for!

I'm now going to reveal the cover of my upcoming YA standalone, STARS.

Are you ready?

Summary first, as always:

After the death of the King, Myra knows what she has to do. His son, Torren, Myra’s past best friend, will take the throne. But first, he has to marry Princess Arora, and Myra. His Mistress. Things have been like this as long as Myra can remember, there was a Mistress before her, and so on. The Queen doesn’t have the children, the Mistresses do, and then they get stars. One for marrying, one for completing the marriage, and one for bearing an heir. Myra’s known her fate from the moment she was taken into the royal family after the rebellion years ago.

After they marry, things start to change. The way the royals live is different now, less old fashioned, more modern. Myra is excited for this change, maybe things will be different, maybe she will be able to keep her future child instead of having to give it over to Arora like she should. But after a trip to Arora’s family, Myra finds out something that will ruin her forever.

She tries to hide her fate from Torren, and from Arora. And with a new rebellion rising up at the same time, it’s easy to. But when a rebel by the name of Carter says she’s the key to helping restore the former royal family back to the throne, Myra is faced with an impossible choice.

Stay with Torren and die with him and the Senile when the rebels attack, or join the rebels, and fight for a future that she never thought she’d be apart of.

Will Myra choose love, or duty?

And here is the cover! Hope did such a great job with the cover!!

Fillicent Scene!

I wrote this out of nowhere the other night. And decided to share!

It takes place in the middle of Thunder & Lightning (The Storm Saga #1.5) It's during their wedding night, of obvi, I don't write sex scenes, so it's not that. So don't worry, peeps. You can always count on me for that! ^.^

Enjoy!!

~~~

When the dress slipped to the floor, and his coat and a shirt came off, I literally couldn't breathe. I had only seen men without their shirts at war times, when they were being fixed up. I never went anywhere that men might be showing more than in thought proper. I never even saw my brothers without their shirts on, our heritage was so drilled into us I ha d never seen a chest before. Ever. I felt silly, thinking those things, but when Felix leaned back from kissing my shoulder, I reached out and tentatively touched him, it wasn't much, since he was still really a boy according to these times, but he was a man to me. My husband. My Felix. My thunder. 

He touched my hand as I trailed my fingers down his chest. "You seem a little shocked." He whispered. I nodded and bit my lip. He took his other hand and carefully put it on my waist and goosebumps went up my entire body. "Millicent," he whispered. I didn't know who was in more of a state of shock, him or me. I knew he's never seen a girl with a bikini, he told me he wanted to be careful, so seeing me in just my undergarments was driving him insane. And touching me no less. 

"I don't...I don't know..." He stammered softly.

"Me too," so I just leaned forward and kissed him. That helped him get back to routine. He explored new parts of me, and I explored new parts of him, until we both didn't have any clothes on and I was in the bed, and he was hovering over me and we just kissed. "I love you," he whispered to me. "I love you too." I whispered back. My thunder. My everything. We continued all night, things were awkward and were confusing but the fact that we were both doing this together and for the first time made it all worth it. I loved him, and he loved me. And that's all that mattered.

~~~

Got inspired from reading DELUGE. Lisa never ceases never to inspire me! Hope you liked, if you didn't, that's alright, I wrote this just for fun. :)

Happy Tuesday!
