Let the Countdown Begin!

31 Dec

Opening The Door on a New Year

I know what you’re thinking, you think I mean the countdown to New Years Eve, but nope, you are way wrong! Today starts the countdown to Book Three: Raven! In just weeks, Raven will hit the market, fewer if you’re a Kindler! I find it fitting it should start today, but why not? Feather: Book One was released in January one year ago, and now here we are, at the end of the series!

Once Raven is over, and the angels and demons of that book are put to rest, I will then release an all new series which I believe will be bigger and better! Knight Angels Series. While finding influence from The Hunger Games, Supernatural, and other great movies like Sherlock Holmes, I hope that this new series provides an array of exciting adventures, love stories, and of course tragedy!

With an expanded vocabulary, and a deeper understanding of what a makes up a great book, I believe they’ll just keep getting better!

In the new year, I hope to continue working toward my dreams of literary fame, and fun. I love helping people, and it has, and still will be my mission to reply to all those that ask for advice/or just plain say hi! So say hi!

My NaNoWriMo Progress! November is National Writing Month!

4 Nov

So, this month I’m starting that new series, the Knight Angels Series! YAY! I am really cruising through this!

Words So Far: 7100 ish

Genre: Young Adult Fantasy. Angels. Shape Shifters. Dreamers

Setting: Post Apocalypse in a new world without dreaming or magic… until…

Level of Love For New Book: HUGE! This book is so fun to write so far, so fast paced! For all the Feather Fans out there, just wait till you get your paws on this! It will blow that outta the water!

Working Cover Art:

knights-cover-webI’m trying to go with a “Card” Theme. The queen of hearts, the King, etc etc. The cover will inevitably change (as I recieve your input!) So that is why it’s a “working cover”

 

Inside The Feather Book Series House!

31 Oct

Hey! So I decided, that with my dad being an architect and all, that I needed to draw out what this house of my dreams really looks like. This was hard! Some of the stuff I envisioned didn’t actually pan out the way I wanted it to when it came to drawing things, to many magical hidden rooms, he he. This is what I always saw, though, while writing, and now you can see it too! I wish my real house was like this, I also wish the house was secretly invisible in a field in the North Cascades, but we can’t all win, can we?

Another Rainy Day in WriterVille…

23 Oct

It’s raining rather profusely today and I am still battling the Flu. I shut all the windows and turned on a few lamps and lit some candles, so hopefully this will bring warmth back to my life. I slept on the couch last night because I was sniffling/coughing so much and I didn’t want to bother my husband, needless to say he was angry that I slept on the couch because I am the sick one. The Jazz channel is also playing, that’s always nice. I really wish I could have a whole bottle of wine and forget about the Flu, but that doesn’t seem very responsible…

I watched one of the most disturbing movies yesterday, it was called Blindness. Unless you are into scary epidemics, don’t see it, it will haunt you. I can’t stop thinking about it. It does have a good ending, though. I’ve watched a lot of random movies lately. It seems that in the afternoons they cater to the artistic stay-at-home crowd.

I really want to see Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs…

Book Covers

I made new covers for the Feather Book Series the other day and shared them with the members of the Fan Club. They gave me some great feedback, so I will likely be changing them from what you see below. I even had some Fans send me fonts they thought were neat LOL. It will be hard to add everyone’s suggestions, but I am going to try. A lot of the Fans that came back with comments to the questions I asked were actually QUITE helpful. I am sure you will see the product of your answers throughout the third book.

Editor Progress:

Christina is nearly done re-editing Feather, God love her for it! (She got to go to a private Bon Jovi Concert yesterday, boooooooo, we’re all jealous). Guardian I suspect will go faster because there will be fewer mistakes, and then Raven will rock out just as fast. Right now I am shooting for a December release of Raven, DECEMBER!!!!! By then it will be snowy (for some of us) and just the right season for reading.
