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.
This means that HEMLOCK VEILS is no longer on the market (though I see it is still being sold on Amazon--I guess I should check on that), because it's no longer published. I currently have no published works...and I suppose that makes me not a published author anymore.
I have so many mixed feelings about it. I am over the devastation, mostly, since this was decided months ago and it's had time to sink in and marinade. 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…
We've probably all heard the flack Bella (or really, Stephenie Meyer, author of the Twilight series and creator of Bella's annoying character) has gotten for being an enabler in an abusive and/or controlling relationship, or for not being strong enough. For being too dependent on her man-vampire. I love the empowerment women are finally getting in our culture and society--right now is the best time in history to be a woman, and hopefully that only continues. It is due to this wonderful influence (and the tuning out of negative influences) I have come to know my own strength as a woman, as well as my own worth. That my feminism is strength.
But is it really so pathetic for Bella to be completely crushed when Edward leaves her in New Moon (the second book in the Twilight series, for anyone living under a rock)?
I read the Twilight series as the books were first released--before it was cool. I was a Twilight hipster. They were enjoyable re…
