After I finished it and received feedback from beta readers though, I have been considering continuing the story. I have an idea already brewing, so I guess we'll have to wait and see how people like this book before going on to another chapter.(less)

Happy New Year

2020 has been a strange one for me, and I'm sure fpr most of you as well. It has not been the most productive on my end. My latest collection, From Nightmare, Dreams was set to be released in summer of 2020, but when the summer came, it just didn't feel right. This year the world had so many more important voices that needed to be heard than my own, so I decided to wait. And I waited, and waited.

"Although I do love these characters; I don't like alot of errors in the book. Spelling and sentence structure issues were littered in the book.
The story itself is wonderful. I'm so glad Rouge is finally getting her credit and is more involved.
