Linvin stumbled through the wood as daylight arrived to show him the way. With every step, Linvin knew he was a little bit closer to being able to put the heavy carcass down. The thought made the weight bearable for a time. It was not long, however, before those steps made the weight greater and... Read more of this blog post »

Niltze fellow readers and friends. So I've had writer's block for over two months, maybe more. I was so busy working on other things that every time I tried to write something in one of my stories nothing would come. But finally this week, I was able to seat down and power through it. I'm already... Read more of this blog post »

Cats are popular on the internet. It seems like every time I turn around, there is another cat video in my Facebook feed.

This is part of the reason why I like to talk about Jynx in my blog. He is a cute, cuddly inspiration for me to talk about his antics and somehow tie it to writing. He is makin... Read more of this blog post »

Good grief, will you look at that? We’re into chapter seven already and, last I checked, the total word count was somewhere north of 12K. Not bad, for four month’s worth of Saturdays, now is it? At this rate, there should be enough story left to last well into the end of the year, if… Read more of this blog post »

The French cover for Captive Prince is here, and it is amazing! It shares the gorgeous chain motif from the Australian edition, and I love the symbolism of it, and the dark moody colouring.
