A rare time of peace and love.
She holds on to those dying memories.
So old and irrelevant her remembrance.
Now what has she become?
Survivor in a nightmare of gods and machines.

On Christmas Eve they were not permitted to eat meat, cheese or eggs. On Christmas day, after three masses were said, the genealog...Read more of this blog post »

I think it’s time for a general status update here on the blog since I’m about to go radio silent for a while. You probably know that Broken Dolls will go live in less than 48 hours. Here’s the pre-order information if for some reason you have missed it and are interested.

I started this one expecting something entirely different than what I read. Because of this, I almost put it down, but am so glad I did not. It is written for the younger readers – middle school level, I think – which leads to some of the simplified descriptions I ran into.
A few small technicali...Read more of this blog post »
It’s not been an easy week. My two young children have succumbed to the winter vomiting virus that is sweeping through our town at an alarming rate. Sickness bugs are pretty bleak and our house now stinks of Dettol and parties have been missed – but on the plus side, I have had a lovely excuse to...Read more of this blog post »

I’ve been struggling a bit with digging deeper into my character, really getting under the skin of the two main ones. This past month, I’ve scrapped almost three full chapters and over 9,000 words. It hurt to realize how much was either filler or just not that interesting. Characters didn’t make...Read more of this blog post »
