Dakota Willink Thank you for reading! I'm so glad you liked it!
I'm still working on Set In Stone. I've had a lot going on with the audiobook production and RWA over the past couple of months, so I am a little behind schedule. As soon as I have a date, I'll be sure to post it everywhere :)
Dakota Willink I'm working on it - I promise! I've had a lot going on with the audiobook production and RWA over the past couple of months, so I am a little behind schedule. As soon as I have a date, I'll be sure to post it everywhere :)
Dakota Willink It's currently in production with the narrators. I do not have a release date yet. Sorry!
Dakota Willink This is a tough one because I have so many favorites. For those that know me, they know that I am a huge J.K. Rowling fan. That being said, I'm going to have to go with Harry Potter and Ginny Weasley. They are my favorite fictional couple because there's a sweet innocence to them that simply I love. They remind me of my youth and what young love feels like.
Dakota Willink Since you read the book in only a day - I hope that means you like it :-)

As for Stepping Stone (book 2), I don't have a release day yet. I am three quarters of the way finished with it, but then it has to go through the editing process. I never know how long that is going to take.

I'm sorry that I don't have a more precise answer for you - but thank you for reaching out! And thanks for reading too :-)
Dakota Willink Music helps me a lot. I often use lyrics and melodies to help me through bouts of writers block. Reading books by some of my favorite authors helps me too, as sometimes just reading the right adjective gets my brain working again.
Dakota Willink I get to write my own schedule.
Dakota Willink I learned that it’s hard work, but determination is key. Staying focused can be challenging, especially when the words aren’t flowing. But most importantly, I learned how to play it smart. I was so excited after my book was officially finished, but then I had to face to daunting task of promoting via social media. There’s a lot of “fine print” out there, and quite a few bogus sites that give false promises. I’m still learning, but I’ve gotten a lot better at seeing the difference between a flower and a weed.
Dakota Willink Stepping Stone, which is book 2 in The Stone Series
Dakota Willink I’m a lover of music, and appreciate the power and stimulating effect it can have on the brain. I often use lyrics and melodies to help me through bouts of writers block. At the end of my novel, you can find an authors note that recognizes and thanks the artists that gave me inspiration.
