Don't let fear stop you. I wasn't good at spelling, had bad handwriting, and still occasionally flip my letters backwards or write them out of order. If you keep writing, keep challenging yourself to try a new style, rewrite your work, even write with others in an ongoing story, you will get better. Reading helps you learn pacing and expands your ability to draw on different ideas. And never judge yourself by your first draft. Writing is like being a detective. You start with only an idea of what might have happened, but you have to get to know the characters, their history, and their motivation before you get to the truth of what's going on. Most of my stories go through three revisions before I feel like I have the entire picture. www.750words.com is a good way to develop the habit of writing a little every day.(less)

I already had the second written and a bit of the third. I decided to rewrite the second book and did work on it. But life happened. I got scared about releasing the second. I didn't know how. I couldn't afford help. I was too busy just trying to make enough money for bills and groceries. I wasn't sure the first book was strong enough to hold the series.
So this year, I revamped that too. It's currently being finished by my developing editor and off to the proofers. (And yes, thanks to my years of stalling I have the third rewrite of the second book almost ready to go.) I don't have a release date yet for "The Secret of Sentarra" but it will be within the next few months. And the second will go into the publishing process shortly after this time. I promise. For a short time, I've put the story on Wattpad so the readers who bought the first book could read the new version without having to purchase it again. Check it out if you'd like, but do it soon. It's coming down upon publication.

“Safe! Such a colorful, horrible bog of lace and silks as I have hopes of never seeing again! You have proven to be our hero, kind Sir, for indeed, had you not been there to grant the way of escape, I fear we would have certainly met our undoing! With lace underfoot and egos overhead, not even the strongest woman has hope of weathering such a place!”
