Welcome, people. Finally started the blog. I'm long-winded enough in person so I won't drag this out any longer than I need to.
For those of you who know the business, I just finished writing my first novel and am in the process of trying to get it published. (Self-publishing will be a last resort; It's too good for that, honestly, but I've heard of success with it, so maybe baby). But I'm excited about what the future may hold and I know that when this series hits shelves, it's going to be a hit. End. Of. Story.
I'm still waiting to hear back on the Miami University Press novella contest for my entry, Invasion. I'll know by February. If I don't win, not sure if I'm going to enter it into another contest or self-publish it as an e-book. But I'll be sure to let you know.
I will know about the Writer's Digest Short Story contest in a couple of weeks. By Dec 31, they say. Anyway, if I come out on the wrong side of the buffalo, I'll just publish Unknowing as a free e-Book on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Cool? Yes, I know.
Also, a few things to look forward to. I'm releasing the first book, in an Adult e-Book Trilogy this summer, called the Trilogy of the Eternal Knights. That's all you get. Let your mind run wild. Just know that it's going to be A-W-E-S-O-M-E.
Lastly, I'm competing for the Golden Heart Award for Romance Writers of America next year. A very, very cool paranormal romance, which I'm having a blast writing. It's already a contender in my eyes.
Okay, I promised I would put up reading list suggestions, so here goes:
Adult: The Red Queen, by Philippa Gregory
Young Adult: The Maze Runner, by James Dashner
Romance: Dark Lover, by J.R. Ward
Cheaper as an E-Book: Dead Girls Are Easy, by Terri Carey $4.99
Book NOT to read: Witch and Wizard, by James Patterson (Stay far away from this whack series)
And last, but so not least, check out the first part of my ongoing Blog series, The Reaper of Bogota.
Until I blog again, I bid you all farewell...
