Last night I quit drinking and it has literally changed my life forever. While the process definitely hasn’t been easy, it’s totally been worth it. First of all, cutting out alcohol cold turkey has allowed me to re-focus on the areas of my life I’ve been neglecting over the past few years, most...Read more of this blog post »

I’m a dirty, dirty whore. I thought you should know. I’m also a liar. I told you guys that I broke my manuscript for Hawk and I’m having to change it. What I’ve come to realize is that in its original form, Hawk would have wrapped up the events of Slick at the end of the novel. Which won’t happen...Read more of this blog post »

I released my first book in September. Three months later and I am in awe of the little writing career I made for myself. It’s the icing on the cake when your book model posts this on his Facebook and tags you in it.

At first I didn't know how I felt about it. I had to keep looking at it from different angles and I was going to tell the artist to change everything.

I was already feeling not good and then I wrote a sad part of my WIP.
I think it’s a good direction, plot-wise, but now I’m even more bleh.
I have to wonder, if I wasn’t feeling crappy, if it would’ve been written differently.
