It's been a long time since I've posted anything, and I apologize for that. Life has thrown more than a few curve balls. But I won't get into that. I wanted to share a little something, aside from the news that I will be reviving this blog and trying to update it regularly, from here on out.
As many of you know, I took a huge hiatus from writing for a while (hence the prolonged silence on the blog). And, as some of you also know, I just recently started making time in my life for writing again. It's been hard, but man, did I miss it. How I even breathed without it for so long is a mystery, because now I feel like I will never be able to remove it from my life again.
Not only have I been writing again, but I've been writing in a genre completely new to me.
Unfortunately, HEMLOCK VEILS has not found another publishing home, and due to the market trends right now, it might not have another publisher for a long time. That being said, I'm…
I suppose this announcement is past-due. I've been waiting for it to be official, on the off-chance I would step on toes or something, but I can officially announce--now that I have signed the agreement--my contract with Swoon Romance (GMMG--Georgia McBride Media Group) has ended and we have gone our separate ways.

What I can say is that it's definitely the best choice, for both GMMG and me. I want to make it clear that we did not part on ill terms. I still love that team, and they still praise my writing. It was just a matter of different styles, and bot…
I miss writing. But since starting my full-time job, brain cells are hard to come by at night. So I'll count this blog post as my writing time tonight. I just wanted to put a beautiful thought out there I heard/read today. I came across this little excerpt from Nikos Kazantazakis while at an afternoon appointment, and whether or not one believes in his philosophies is beside the point; no matter your beliefs, this parable speaks truth. And mostly, it applies so much to what I'm going through in my life right now.
Patience. It's never come easily to me (thanks for the impatience, Dad). It's one thing I'm being tested on constantly right now, and one thing I'm trying to learn so I can move to the next stage of my life (I don't have very much patience while trying to get through this trial of patience).
In all seriousness, though, I've had to mostly learn how to have patience with myself. And then I read this today:
