Cover design for The Stealth Lovers is happening!

And here's a snippet! ID: Fighter ship flying away into space. Once again, I'm working with the super-talented Nathan Fréchette from Renaissance for this cover. I wanted something that was a little different from the ’Cosm series but would still look like it belonged as its prequel. (For the two sequels following Life in the …

Hey, there! I discovered a thing about myself that I find kinda cool. Because I've only a few years under my belt as an author, I'm still learning what my process is after finishing a novel. And guess what? It seems I really like writing short stories in between larger projects. I had to ditch …

To NaNo or not to NaNo? That is the question.

I have a really cool problem. I've got something that might distract me from writing each day for NaNoWriMo 2018—the Nothing Without Us anthology. It's a project I'm co-editing with my BFF and sensitivity editor Talia C. Johnson. NWU, as we nicknamed it, is going to be a collection of short stories for and by authors who identify …

Why My Second Book Will Have More Editors

This week I was so excited to send The Stealth Lovers to my publisher, Renaissance. The manuscript still has to go through the Acquisitions Committee, so I have about three months to wait before I know if they'll publish it. (Please, please pick me! Pick me!) The Stealth Lovers is the origin story of Commander Xaxall …

I’ve gone camping! To Camp NaNoWriMo, that is.

Well, whaddaya know? I  said I wouldn’t do NaNoWriMo again (after I’d completed my first in 2017 and actually hit the 50,000 word goal), but guess what? I’m baaaack! It just happens that I am on a two-month break from my freelance editing day job. I needed time to regroup and refresh, but also to …
