Rain, sharp and heavy in its masses, struck the ground, relentlessly beating it into subjection. The sheet of the above was gray and deep, and all who were beneath it trembled in the cruel jaws of the gloom that clenched them. The entire world seemed alive, nurtured beneath the wing of the vengeful darkness.

Wrapped in this same darkness, the man waited.

The Captor’s Redemption – A Man and his Demons

Last week I announced my new book, The Captor’s Redemption, a 155,000 word original dark fantasy novel which will be released on August 8, 2018.

I mentioned that it was listed for preorder, but here are those links again, plus an extra:

Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Smashwords, Kobo,  and iBooks (do a search).

But first, a general update.

Writing/Publishing Schedule

I finally did it! I made a plan for my future publishing endeavors based on a 3-6 month schedule. I worked out what I wanted to release and made a working schedule for what I want to be writing/editing at what times.

I worked through it all the way to the end of 2020! Then I just sat back and looked at it like ‘wow, I’m going to be so busy!’. And I’ll have to keep planning as time goes on, but I think I’m going to love it.

My lifetime aspiration is to write as many books as possible, so this ought to be a good way to do it.

I’m still editing at this point and finalizing the layout of The Captor’s Redemption, but I hope to have that done by the end of this month. But basically I need to stay busy or I’ll go crazy. So, there’s that!

Anyway, I see it as a challenge and I’m pretty excited.

I’m currently making great progress on a new book that I hope to release in January 2019, but I have another book planned in between, so I have to keep at it!

I’m going to need your support if I’m going to make this happen, so please stick with me and give me some feedback every once in a while. 🙂

Now back to Captor. So, what’s it about? It’s about a man and his demons – literally.

***WARNING! Some of you might consider this to contain spoilers, so if you don’t want to know anything at all, turn back now!!***


In a dark, monster infested world, Vincent has a unique ability. He can kill demons and make them a part of himself, harnessing their power. He is a Captor, his body itself a prison. Within him might lie the salvation of the world, but he has his own agenda: revenge for the death of his brother.


The book follows Vincent, our protagonist and anti-hero. Vincent is brooding, hostile, and haunted. In a world that values religion, he is fighting against it in his bold mission to kill a man he calls ‘the priest’, who killed his brother. He would claim that this is the only thing that his life is worth, but there is more to Vincent than that.

At a young age, Vincent discovered that he had a unique ability. Along with his brother, Trevan, he discovered that he had superhuman speed, strength, accelerated healing, and most interesting – an ability to capture a demon’s soul inside himself and use its form at will. The interesting thing about this is that these demons still have consciousness inside his mind. It’s not that he can become them, but he allows them to come forward and mutate his body. This is difficult and takes a toll on him physically and mentally. He has to keep control of the demons inside him, and at times, it’s a struggle.

Vincent knows that his abilities are beyond human, but he doesn’t know why he can do these things. Instead of seeking answers about himself, instead he lets his anger drive him along his way to what he believes is important.

This story follows Vincent, exploring his past and setbacks as he goes on to discover that there may be more to his own story than even he knows.

The World

The world has no name, but it is what’s left of Earth hundreds of years in the future. It is often referred to as ‘the world, as it is now’. The world is cold and dark. The sky (or ‘the gray sheet of the above’) looms over them. The sun cannot be seen. There is very little left.

The world is indeed round, but it is flat as well. The world is basically a landmass that hangs free in space – rather, it is a piece of the Earth that survived when the planet broke apart and sunk into hell. The world is round like a target, with the cities in the center like a bullseye. The further one goes from the center, the closer they get to the edge of the world where demons are able crawl onto the plane. Monsters spawn from hell-ash that blows in from the world’s edge. This world is a dangerous place. People in the cities live lives full of indulgence while the people in the wilderness fight for survival, dealing with the beast threat and their ritualistic binding of the demons.

Vincent walks his own path in this world, respecting no one, considering them to be misguided. Maybe he’s right. Or he could be terribly wrong.

The Demons

Demons are beings that want nothing more than to crawl out of hell and own the World. It is at least a little bit better than the world they come from. They want to kill the humans, but mostly they just want to survive any way they can. They are genderless and cannot be replicated like the monsters that spawn from the ash. When they come into the world, they must choose a form that can exist beyond the hell-realm, and they will often base their appearances on a creatures that already exist. Many of them resemble animals in some way.

One of my favorite things about the story is that the demons inside Vincent have their own desires and personalities. They don’t really have voices to communicate as much as Vincent can feel their intentions and translate their thoughts in a way that he can understand. The book follows Vincent, but the demons have a part in his revenge, and they make their own judgements about him and his feelings as the story goes on.


For those of you who love romance, never fear! Well, while this book may not be exactly romantic, there is a love connection. Of course I won’t spoil how things play out, but there is a romantic substory in this book, like so many of my others. So, if you like what I usually do in that regard, then I think you’ll be happy with this one too. But…

Not Young Adult

This is not a young adult book, and I wouldn’t consider it new adult either, even though the characters are not over 30. The themes and characters just don’t fall into these categories, in my opinion. So if you’re open to that and you enjoy a more serious and literary fantasy novel, this will be a great one for you. Unlike some others in the same category, the prose is not too purple, I swear.

I personally think that this book is one of my best examples of world and character building. I’ll be honest: some might find it a slower read, but this book was met with praise by those who have read it online. Many liked that it focused a lot more on just a few characters instead of many, and the story itself was well-received.

So! I hope you’re excited for this one, but if it’s not your cup of tea, I have more coming soon.

Just follow the blog to keep up!

Ten Tips for Writing (and Finishing) Your Book

shutterstock_235976374Last week, I received a comment interested in getting some writing tips from me. I wrote a few posts like this in the past, but haven’t made one in a while, for whatever reason. I’ve thought about writing a book on writing, but yet there are already so many, and I don’t have many great successes to boast, so I haven’t moved forward with that. I’m completely self-taught (other than any English skills I may have learned) but as far as creative writing, that’s all me. I’ve just developed a feel for it and I’ve looked at what others have done and learned from that.

Since I find myself needing to reconnect with some of this myself, I started thinking about what works for me and how I finish my own books. This is what I came up with.

Ten Tips for Writing (and Finishing) Your Book

1.) Know where your story is going – Even if you are a spontaneous kind of writer in some respects, you should at least know some things about your book. What’s the main thing you want to accomplish by writing your book? What makes you excited about your story? Focus on that. Is the romance the main aspect even though it has a fantasy theme? Stick to the romance and let it carry you through. Is there a major conflict that needs to be resolved? Know what you’re writing toward. For me, I need to know that I’m writing toward something that needs to be resolved: a mystery that I need to reveal, a romance that needs to come to fruition, or a conflict that greatly needs a resolution. Find the point you’re working toward and go for it. I usually find that the rest will fill itself in.

2.) Love your idea. – If you don’t love your idea – and I mean LOVE it – then you probably aren’t going to finish it. Think about it for a few days before you decide to write it. Try to figure out if it’s really something that you’re excited about or that you’re going to finish. If not, save the idea for later. You may be able to use it again for something else! I do this all the time. I have ideas that I think are swell but I don’t know how to make it work as a stand-alone story. What do I do? I write it down , and I might find a way to use it along with another idea I have later. I truly believe that some ideas can bloom, but we’re just not ready to write them yet. Either we don’t have the skill to figure out how to make it work (happens to me often) or the idea is just not solid yet (happens to me alllll the time).

Example, late last year I was excited about writing a weird western, but when I sat down to write it, I wasn’t happy with how it was going. I think it just wasn’t the right time, and I’m okay with that. Eventually, the time will be right.The idea is still there.

If you find yourself in this position, just go back to the drawing board and search for something that gives you a true feeling of love.

3.) Keep inspiration close at hand – This can mean many things. Have a ritual if you need one. Wear a decorative pair of open-finger gloves. Always have a cup of coffee in a mug that says #1 Writer, or whatever. Do what you have to do. For example, when I was writing Nevermor, I had this cheap little plastic ball that was filled with water and glitter, and when I wasn’t busy typing, I would sit there and throw it up in the air, or just shake it up and watch the glitter inside it. It sounds like a waste of time, but you have to do what you have to do! I’ve done things like that in the past, but it usually varies from one book to the next. There are, however, a few things that I always do.

One thing I always do when I’m working on something is find some music that inspires me to think. I listen to it often and just zone out while listening. I’ll clean up, exercise, listen to it while I commute, and use it as the soundtrack for whatever I’m working on. While I’m listening, I’m watching my characters. I may not always hear what they’re saying, but I see what’s going on. I develop a vision and then I put that vision to words, like watching a music video. Sometimes the words of the songs come through to me and that gives me an idea as well. I usually choose my songs based on the sound of the music, and then the words come through. I even choose songs that I don’t really know as long as the sound seems right, and then I connect with something new. (Spotify is really good for building playlists.)

Another good thing to do is search for character/setting inspiration online. Spend some time looking at pictures. Choose an actor to represent your character. This usually works pretty well for me. Assigning a face helps me to visualize everything a bit better, and looking at art gives me some nice ideas for visualization while my characters are moving around in my head.

4.) Take time to think. This is the part that has been getting me down lately. It’s not that I don’t have time to write, it’s that I don’t take the time to think about what I want to write. What I mean by that is that I get so distracted by so many other things. It’s not just work or real world stuff; it’s even what I do for entertainment. If you are constantly letting other people entertain you (with their books, their movies, and their games) how are you supposed to have your own ideas? Not that you can’t do those things too – inspiration can come from anywhere and that’s very important – but take some time to meditate on your own ideas. It’s not about just taking time to write or making a schedule or trying to write everyday. Choosing to sit down at your computer for an hour does not equal writing time. Trust me. Even if I start out with a word document, sometimes I’ll just stop and pull up Facebook, or the game I’m currently playing, or I think I’m going to watch Youtube while I write. No. No, it just doesn’t work. Unplug if you have to – like I’ve begun to do. Find a connection with your project that makes you want to write, not just for an hour a day, but ALL day.

5.) Read something that inspires you – Do you remember the last book that you read and loved? Or do you have a favorite author whose words are phenomenal? You think: “I wish I could write like that or create something like that.” Read a paragraph from their book. Read the first page and REALLY read it. Look at how the words carry you away and then look at what words and sentences are actually being used. Think about what the author did in a technical way. Sometimes, when I can’t find inspiration, I’ll grab one of those books off my shelf – one that I know I loved and enjoyed – and I’ll open it up (sometimes to the first page and sometimes to a random spot in the middle) and I’ll read a few paragraphs. I’ll then think about what I just read and compare it to what I’m writing. If you’ll do this, you’ll probably find the same thing that I usually do – you’re doing fine and they’re just words after all. There is nothing magical about them, and they are probably just like yours. If you find that they’re not, think about why. What is different? Think about those things and learn from them.

6.) Edit as you need to, but remember that you can fix it later – Some tipsters might tell you to ‘save the editing for later’ and to ‘just get the words on the page’, but my advice is a little different. Here’s the thing: I read the beginning of my book more often than anything. If my first few paragraphs are crap, I get really annoyed. So, I’ll often spend a lot of time polishing the first bit of my book, just so that when I read it again later, it inspires me all over again. This assures me that the whole project is not garbage. If you need to do that for every chapter that you finish to make yourself feel good about going forward, do it. Do what feels right to you. Sometimes, I still like the manuscript to have a bit of polish before I go forward. It helps me to really get in touch with the words and to remember what I was doing and what still needs to be done.

Don’t drive yourself crazy though. As you’re working on this, don’t forget that you can fix it. And you will. If you’re like me, you’ll never ever stop fixing it, and it will never be perfect even after you publish it. I have to make myself stop. If I don’t, it would go on forever because nothing is ever good enough unless I’m working on something else. Once the work is complete, you’ll be able to look at it as a whole and see it for what it is. Then you can alter it so it all goes together.

So in that respect, yes, just get the words on the page.

That said, if when you’re reading over your book and you run across a section that absolutely bores you to tears, you can’t be bothered to read it let alone edit it, then it might be a good idea to think about cutting it – or rewriting it. If you’re bored reading it, someone else might be too.

7.) Don’t be afraid to skip ahead – When I first started writing, like so many others, I would write in a straight line from one chapter to the next, mostly because I was posting online and I couldn’t go on to the next part until I had finished the one before it. I don’t write like that anymore. If I’m having trouble writing a section but I know what happens directly after it, then I’ll jump ahead to write the next section. Then I’ll take some time to think about it and come back later to work on the part that I was having trouble with. I usually just fill those spaces in later. If I still can’t fill in that spot, then I need to go back to number 4 and take some time to think and visualize.

One reason this might not work is if you don’t know how to begin a story. That bothers me, personally. Like I mentioned above, when the beginning isn’t solid, it bugs me. It may not bother you that way. So, if you can deal with skipping the beginning, by all means, skip it and come back to it later.

8.) Change how/where you’re writing – In the past, I’ve had some of my best writing success by printing out what I had and sitting down with the printout and a notebook to add sections where needed and to edit. I would read over it and make it better as I went. Though that may be a waste of paper and computers are just so much faster for getting words on the page, sometimes it’s not as good, I feel. I think there’s a real difference when you put a lot of time and focus into something. So! If you sit down at the computer and you feel blank, grab a notebook. Type something up on your phone. Or maybe you need a change of scenery. Change the room you are writing in. Go outside. Go to a coffee shop (if that’s your thing). Figure out what works for you. Sometimes it really is as simple as that.

9.) Write a layout – Even if the layout is vague; even if you don’t have a full layout yet, make one. It will help you gather your ideas and remind you of what you know and what you don’t know yet. When you write one chapter, then you can look over and have a reminder of what you need to happen next in the story. It can change at any time, and when it does, alter the layout. This will help you keep it all together, and if there comes a time when you see the whole thing set out before you, Eureka!

Though I always have an idea of where my story is going, I like my story and characters to grow a bit as I progress. I don’t like the idea that everything has to be set in stone, because things change, and I enjoy it when that happens. Remember, your characters are not just words on paper – they are alive inside your mind. Get in touch with them.

Sometimes, your layout for a chapter might be one sentence. ‘Character A and Character B have a fight’. Oh…that isn’t very much detail. Well, if you can write yourself up to that chapter, chances are you’re going to have a better understanding of your characters and what is going on in the story in order to progress and get things done. By that, I mean set things up and reveal the information that your reader needs to know. ‘Character A finds out the big secret’. By this point, I hope you know what it is!

If all you know is the basic description of your story, write that down. Write character descriptions if you need to. Write about the world. Essentially, you’re writing about what you’re going to write, and that will help.

10.) Just write. Anyone who has ever written anything successfully is going to tell you this. But how?? How do you write when you can’t write?? I know, I know. I didn’t know how to take this one either until it actually happened to me, and then I finally understood. Here’s what you do. Don’t think about writing. Don’t think about what you’re going to build. Don’t think about who your characters are or what they’re doing. Just open up a fresh word doc, sit down and write the first sentence that comes to you. Look outside and write what you see, poetically or otherwise – whatever your style is. Write about what your cat is doing. Look up a writing prompt and try a short story. Write a piece of fanfiction if you need to. Just do something with it until you feel good about writing again. Then, when you’re ready, stop doing that and work on the real project that you have your heart set on. Sometimes these fake projects turn into real ones, or you can use pieces of it for something else. Find something that inspires you – anything! – and write about it.

Writing is just like any other skill. The more time you spend doing it and thinking about it, the better you will become. It grows with time, like how to know your sentences are good, that the flow is right, and that the characters have done what they needed to do. Get to know your own writing.

For example, I can now think of my current work and have an estimate on my word count and also when I will finish it. I know how many words it will take to get me through a plot point, and how many words I need per chapter – therefore, I know how many chapters the book will have. I’m pretty sure that I couldn’t do that for a long time, but I know what I’m capable of and I can know what a story needs to get it to the end.

The main things, I believe, are 1.) your mind needs to be clear and 2.) the STORY is LIFE. That means that when it’s right, it’s right, and you’re thinking about it 24-7 until it’s done. That’s the good kind of writing.

I hope you all liked this post! It felt pretty good to write it, so I hope it was helpful. Sitting down to think about these things helped me too! I’ve been doing a bit more writing lately and that has been really nice. Again, I’m not sure where I’m headed right now, but I’m enjoying this simplicity as far as not worrying about getting work out there just to make money. I definitely need to reconnect with writing for the love of it, and I think I may be on the right track.

Like I mentioned at the beginning, I do have a few older posts that give some writing advice, so here are the links to those.

Project Nevermor 5 Year Anniversary!

It was five years ago that I first announced my plans for Nevermor, right here on this blog. I created the blog for just that purpose, but it has gone beyond the Nevermor trilogy, expanding to more of my works that I wrote in years past. After five years, I’m finally finishing off those works I’ve held in reserve, and I’m nearing the time when I will publish something truly new!


I currently have 12 published works and counting. Every time I look at the growing number, I can hardly believe it. I’ve achieved a dream of mine! My books are for sale and many are in print! It’s something that only a few years ago, I never dreamed would be possible without an agent, publisher, and a lot of luck, but here I am!

I’m proud of what I’ve accomplished, and the best is yet to come!

So what’s happening now?


Since the release of Dark Depths in June (and Daughters of the Deep in July), I’m busy planning my next release for later this year. I mentioned earlier that it would be The Hallowed, and I’m sticking to that, though I don’t have a date yet. I’m currently on the last bit of editing, and I’m hoping for a November release date.

I’m gearing up for NaNoWriMo in November and I’m very excited about the book I’m going to write for that. I feel that I’m getting out from under the load of my past works, rediscovering myself, and I feel I’m getting back to the root of what makes my writing great. I hope to take you all on that journey with me!

Also, Jack and Jill has been given a little makeover — inside and out — and is finally available in paperback as well as on Kindle. I know I said August, but I meant September. :p


Not only that, but I’m working on myself as well. I’m trying to be healthier, happier, and put more time into my writing. Just a couple months ago, I decided that I wanted to work less at my “day job” and put more time into writing again. Working and having a career (other than being an author) is just not something I’m interested in, and I realized I would never be happy with anything else. I’m fortunate enough to be able to do this (for now) and I plan to put more time and effort into my marketing and promotion in the near future.

Things are good! I hope things are going just as well for you. 🙂

A Writer’s Struggle

I often read articles about writing as a business: how to get sales, how to market, is it worth it? Some of these articles say the same thing, and though I would hope against the truth, much of what I find is the same.

No. Published or otherwise, a writer may not be able to support herself just by writing books. If you’re making money as a writer, it’s not because you’re writing fiction. You’re writing non-fiction How To books and freelance articles for blogs, dealing with subjects that don’t matter to you at all.

I’ll be honest: Lately, I’ve been thinking about giving up. In fact, I’ve been at that place many times in my life. It’s always just a phase, but the truth remains: I’m not able to support myself as a writer, and I may never be.

Writing has been a struggle for a while now. I’d say it has been for the past 2 years since I started my current job. It’s not always a question of what I should write – I do have a few ideas put back – but it’s finding the time and focus when there is so much else going on. At some point you realize that you’re an adult with an adult life, and no matter how you slice it, a part of having an adult life is always going to be bills.

The honest truth is that what you do with your life all comes down to money – the stress of needing money from somewhere and not making enough to pay those dreaded bills. And this applies to doing anything you love. Sometimes you just can’t manage to get paid for it.

In the midst of these thoughts, I was out one night after work, thinking that I just couldn’t do it anymore. I wondered if all my effort was worth it, and if I gave up writing, could I move forward? What else was out there? I looked at my phone and saw that someone had tagged me on Twitter. I checked it out and there was a link that led me to Instagram. There, I saw a picture of the books in my Nevermor trilogy. A book blogger was doing a post challenge, and when asked which author she would like to meet, she chose me.

I actually started tearing up. It just meant so much to me to see my books like that, in print and in someone’s possession. To have someone say that they love my work certainly makes me feel that I don’t regret what I’ve done and am doing.

It really does seem that every time I start feeling down, something like this comes along to lift me back up. What I am doing is not at all for naught, though it has been difficult to find time for it.

Things are harder now. My day job requires so much attention that I can’t even think about anything else, develop plots or ideas. I have approximately one serious writer friend, and now we have both become so wrapped up in having day jobs that we barely talk, let alone write together. Lately and for a while, the only thing my brain can think about is making money. How can I make money with my books, and do people really do that? From what I’ve read, even most published writers struggle.

The truth is, I don’t need too much to live right now. That may mean a downgrade from the life I’m currently living, but I believe I could do it. I think I could be perfectly happy without a job, but how to get there? What is enough for happiness?

I have 10 books for sale right now – 10 beautiful books – and a few more that I wrote in my twenties and haven’t released yet. I honestly want nothing more than to be able to support myself with writing.

The night after the Instagram pic, I dreamed an entire plot, and I was so excited about it! It felt so good to know that there was still something there, almost like a sign, that my own mind was telling me ‘we’ve still got it’.

I’ve started thinking: maybe writing can still be accomplished if I try to make time in my life for everything. A schedule. Everything has a time and place. Because of how inspiration strikes, this may not be completely possible, but there must be some way to organize this instead of me wasting so much time moping because I’m unhappy and worrying that the spark is gone. That happens when you overthink everything.

I’m happy to say that I’m writing again, and it feels good. Does it erase all the stresses that life in modern society brings? No. But maybe with more effort and learning, I can finally get to a place where everything balances out. I’m looking forward to finding that.

Shadow Sun Book Trailer and Preorder Info

First I have to say: Happy Anniversary to Project Nevermor! I missed it (again) but it has been 3 years (wow) and that deserves some recognition.

For those who haven’t seen it yet, the book trailer for Shadow Sun has been released! It’s simple, but it does the job. I’m pleased with it, and I think it sets the mood for the book very well. Feel free to share it if you’d like. That helps get the word around, you know. 🙂

Instead of simply promoting my book and leaving it at that, I thought I’d give a little info about how I made this trailer, for any who are interested in making trailers for their own books.

First, I’d just like to say that this trailer cost me absolutely nothing to produce. I used Windows Live Movie Maker, which is a program that was already on my computer. The images are my own, the music was free, I added my own voice, and I put it together myself. If you’ve also seen the trailer for Nevermor (I didn’t make one for Forsaken Dreamscape), you may not know this, but I probably spent about $100 on images to put the thing together. This time, I didn’t do that. I had my book cover, and I told myself I was going simple. That’s what I did.

I didn’t really have a plan when I started it.  I had already created a few images in a photo-editing program that I have, and so those images for the end of the trailer were already created. Of course I also had my book cover at the ready, which is all I really used to make this trailer. I like the way it looks like it’s animated, but actually it is only a few still images that I cropped from the book’s back cover image, and ran them together quickly with a slight animation effect. Ta-da! It’s snowing! Then it was just getting my vision together, finding the right music (which I had already downloaded a while ago, and was lucky enough to have on my PC already. Also, if you are using music, be sure to follow the rules of whoever created it. If they are giving it away for free use, they may ask you to mention them or link to their site.) I had to be sure that I placed all the proper information about the book in the trailer, so that it can stand on its own and let people know what it is, and then there it was! Finished!

I had to mess with it for a while to get it right, and it took me several hours, but I’m happy with the end result, so the time was worth it.

This video is linked in directly from my YouTube channel. Did you know I had one of those? Okay, so there isn’t too much there yet, but I’ll be adding a few video interviews and readings in the near future to give it a bit more life. Anyway, you can follow me there to see all the videos that I post. HERE

In addition, Shadow Sun is now available for preorder on Amazon! HERE Why is this a good thing? Because you can get the special preorder price, which is only available through this offer. Plus, all preorder sales are counted as first day sales, so it helps to push the book further up on the bestseller list. As for other online sellers, I haven’t arranged for that yet, but the print book and Kindle versions should be available on the day I announced: 11/3/15. It’s possible also that soon, the ebook will be available for preorder through B&N, Smashwords, and iTunes as well, but for now it can only be found on Amazon.

Once again, be sure to add the book to your reading list on GOODREADS: HERE

Lots of links to follow in this post…I have a lot more planned on the road to Shadow Sun’s release day. I’ve got more videos and ideas to share. Very soon, I’ll begin posting sample chapters of Shadow Sun on Wattpad, and I’ll begin posting those weekly until release day, so that should get you six chapters as a preview before release.

In the meantime, be sure to follow me on YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, Wattpad, Goodreads and this blog for more info on this and all my other projects.

Thanks again for your support, everyone!! I couldn’t do this without you!
