YA Buccaneers Spring Bootcamp

 

Hi friends,

I kinda love challenges. Last month, I won CampNaNo, and when Ghenet, a good friend of mine, mentioned she and other writers are hosting a bootcamp from May 1st to June 30th, I was very interested.

So, I joined the YA Buccaneers Spring Bootcamp exciting challenge and here are my goals:

  • finish line-edits on The Everlasting Circle (The Everlast Trilogy, book 3) and send them back to my editor by the end of the week.
  • finish revising Breaking Through (The Breaking Series, book 3) by the deadline (May 23rd) and send it to my editor for content editing.
  • finish writing the first draft of my NA fantasy tentatively titled The Energy Within – I already have 32k word written so it shouldn’t take too long now.

 

I know it seems a lot, but I know it’s doable.

We have private groups on Facebook for support and also on twitter. And we’re using the hashtag #YABspring2016 on twitter and instagram – check us out!

So, why don’t you join us?

 

Cheers,

 

Update

 

Hello friends,

 

I know I’m still very quiet online, so I just wanted to give you guys an update of how are things around this side of the computer.

My baby is 14 months old now and she’s very active! She’s still very attached to me, which makes writing hard. Thankfully, she naps twice a day, for about 2-2.5 hours (combined) which gives me time to write/revise, etc … And most nights, after both my daughters are in bed, I’m able to squeeze another 1 hour of writing/revising.

Because my free time is limited at the moment, I haven’t been online much – not here, not on twitter, not on facebook. I do post a couple of pics a week on Instagram and that goes to twitter and facebook, but it’s not the same. (By the way, are you following me on instagram? Click here to do so!) I try using my free time wisely and that means I spend it writing or revising only … Hopefully, I’ll be able to come back to my normal schedule and be a little bit more present online soon.

As for my books, I finished writing Breaking Through (Breaking #3) in January, and finished writing The Everlasting Circle (Everlast #3) in February. I already did one round of revisions on Everlast #3 and it’s now with my editor for the first round of editing (she should send it back to me by the end of this week). After I’m done doing whatever needs to be done for Everlast #3, I’ll send it back to my editor, then I’ll focus on revising Breaking #3 so I can get it ready to send it out to my editor too.

If all goes accordingly to my plans, I should be able to release both books during Summer (Everlast #3 in July and Breaking #3 in August).

In between revisions and sending this manuscript to one side and the other manuscript to the other side, I’m outlining a new book which I hope will also be released this year, but probably closer to the end of the year.

And that’s it for now!

See you guys soon!

 

Cheers,

 

The Breaking Series Promo!

 

Hi friends!

Last week I finished writing Breaking Through! I still have to revise it, then send it to my editor for 2-3 passes of edits, so it’ll still be 3-4 months before it’s published, but to celebrate the end of the drafting part, I decided to do a promo with Breaking Free and Breaking Away!

Writing 300 Words Everyday – Part II

 

Hello friends!

Remember a month ago when I posted about being in huge writing funk, then I found a quote by Stephen King and immediately went on to follow it? That first post was about my progress during the month of Nov while following that advice.

This post right here is to tell you about my progress during the month of December.

I’ve wrote EVERY DAY during the month of December. I didn’t even miss on my birthday, Christmas Eve, Christmas, and New Year’s Eve. And, because to me writing is addicting, I usually wrote more (and sometimes way more) than just my daily goal of 300 words.

Here’s how the month went:

 

Word count Dec

 

As you can see, it went well, even better than November. And I stuck with it. I’m proud of myself that I stuck with my plan, with the quote. And I’ll continue to do so in January, February, March … And forever, I hope.

(Though, once my baby girl starts halfday daycare, my daily word count goal will increase!)

If you are in a writing funk like I was, let this post (and the previous one) serve as an inspiration for you. 300 words is not much that it’ll disrupt your busy day, but enough to make a difference after a couple of minutes months.

I can do it, you can do it!

Cheers,

Midnight Kiss!

Midnight Kiss 3DDid you miss last year’s MIDNIGHT KISS?

Midnight Kiss was a collection of four New Adult Paranormal novellas centering around Halloween night in New Orleans. Four bestselling authors. One City. One Night. Each story features a completely different set of characters who find themselves drawn to the same voodoo shop on Bourbon Street. Midnight Kiss was only available for a short time, but if you missed it, I have great news for you!!

Each of these novellas have been published separately and are now available for purchase or download. Here’s a little more about each one:

Now, she only has until midnight on Halloween until her identity is discovered.

Seduction's KissNever agree to a road trip to New Orleans with your roommate. At least not when your roommate is dragging you along while she reconnects with an ex-boyfriend. Possible consequences of failing to take my advice:

1) Unknowingly going out with a vampire stripper.
2) Getting kidnapped by said vampire’s nest mates.
3) Falling head over heels for your winged hero.

Believe it or not number 3 is the worst one, especially when no one believes you that he exists.

Seduction’s Kiss is a prequel novella to the Allure Chronicles.

When a mysterious letter arrives from her estranged mother, twenty-one year old Kenna Blake and her best friend, Bree, are prompted to take a trip to New Orleans at her mother’s expense.

Will the new world Kenna’s eyes have unwillingly been opened to in the mystifying Crescent City crumble her reality?

Kiss of Awakening is a prequel novella to the Succubus Kiss series.

I’m Back! With a New Book!

 

Hi friends!!

Haven’t seen you all in a while, uh? I know. I’ve been way too quiet. I still am, actually, but I’ll try to be better at updating the website/blog, and also at being on facebook and twitter.

My baby is 9 months old now, but she’s too attached to me. She doesn’t go with anyone else … not even her own father (well, just a little bit). That makes it very hard for me to write. I have a babysitter who stays here at home twice a week (two hours each day) and takes care of my baby while I write, but 1) my baby is still not staying two full hours alone with the sitter and 2) four hours per week is too little. I mean, it’s better than nothing but I can’t write and publish new books as fast as I used to.

Anyway, I’m still here and, even though my books might come slower for a while, I’m still writing.

Meanwhile, I’m releasing a “new” book! SURPRISE!

A Break

 

Hi friends,

So, because of the upcoming baby and some other personal matter, today I’ll begin a break from writing and publishing. Unfortunately, I don’t know how long this break will be.

I’ll even take a break from social media, except to post some “hi, how are you?” tweets, and some pics of my new baby on instagram :)

Anyway, so this is me going on a possibly long break.

Just … don’t forget about me! lol

See you soon. Be safe, friends :)

Cheers,
