A to Z challenge 2017

Hi everyone,

Sorry I haven’t posted in a while. Have been busy. Just wanted to drop in and let you know that I’m not doing the A to Z challenge this year. I decided to use April this year to participate in Camp NaNo so I can get one of the stories I’m working on finished so it can move to the editing/revising stage. It wasn’t an easy decision but I had to do what was right for me this time. I’ll be back for next year’s A to Z though.

Will still be posting during the month with updates and such. Actually will have some cool updates to post about in the next few weeks. That’s it for now. 🙂

Changes to blog and other things…

I’ve changed the tabs around a bit and added a few new ones. One of the things I did was to combine my bio and contact pages. Added the books, resources, and 2015 releases pages.

Under the resources pages are some sub pages like character design, game design, world building and folklore. Will be adding more sub pages as needed. Have added some links to the character design, game design, and world building pages.

Check out the new things and let me know what you think.

One last item to attend to and I’m done. The Hobbit/LOTR posts will be happening but they only be once a month as I have several small writing projects to work on and one big project to edit. I’ll still be adding the character posts at least once a month as well. Will pop in from time to time to keep everyone updated on my progress. 🙂

Right now, I’m working on posts for August. If there are any topics you would like to see on here please let me know. 🙂

Small Update….

Hi everyone,

I wanted to post the next Hobbit/LOTR post today but am still working on it. If I can the family tree finished up for Durin’s Folk by tonight I will post tomorrow so wish me luck. I’m finishing up some of the character and story posts I’ve promised to share and they should go live next week. 🙂

The epic fantasy story keeps growing and I’m trying to get it under control. lol

Some cool news the short story I’ve been talking about should be published in late summer. Once I have an actual date I will post it here. The next piece of cool news is I’ve written a guest post for a fellow author’s blog. Thanks Tiger Hebert. I had fun writing the piece. It’s called Writing  a Series. It went live today. Check it out. 🙂

That’s it for now. Look forward to your comments.

Writing Process Blog Tour

I got tagged to write about my writing process by my friend and fellow writer Nancy Gray who was one of the top 5 finalists in The Dark Crystal Author Quest.  So, here I go…

What am I working on?

My current project is a young adult fantasy/horror series. It’s about two vampire siblings who are living in New Orleans at the time of Hurricane Katrina and an old enemy resurfaces to try and finish what was started with their parents. The first book is about them surviving the hurricane and dealing with the old enemy returning. The second book deals with their back story and what happened to their parents. The third and final book sees the end of the enemy and their coven moving on.

How does my work differ from others of its genre?

Well, it’s similar to the Twilight series but with one exception my vampires don’t sparkle and they get along with the wolves from day one. The vampires and wolves in my series are a combination of a lot different types that are out there. I couldn’t say that they are more like what we think vampires and wolves are based on lore. My characters are modern because they live in modern times but at the same time they are very old.

Why do I write what I do?

I write because I love it. Writing is something that I love to do and I’m not doing it just to try and get published. I hope to one day be a published author. The writing gives me an escape from the real world for a little while. I love to get into the lives of my characters and start writing their stories. I write Fantasy, Horror, Paranormal, Steampunk, and Urban Fantasy genres because they are my favorite genres to read.

How does my writing process work?

When an idea hits me I start an outline and keep a notebook handy to jot down notes. Then, I move onto to creating a mind map of the story from the outline and the notes. After that, I set up the timeline and the world they’ll be living in. When most of that is done I start writing.

Okay, that’s it for my entry. I would have tagged someone but there are way too many to do that. So, I’m throwing out the invite to everyone to write an entry about your writing process. If you choose to participate please share the link here in the comments. 🙂
