Demons, Superheroes, and Ghosts: An Author Update

Being a writer is weird. It’s April, and I haven’t put out any new books yet this year, which makes me feel unproductive. But I’ve been working so hard! So I figured I’d post an author update to prove to myself that I’ve accomplished things. First off, let’s talk about The Shadow Journals. This isContinue reading “Demons, Superheroes, and Ghosts: An Author Update”

2020 Accomplishments and 2021 Goals

First off, let me specify that this post is purely writing related. Looking at the big picture, I’m incredibly grateful to have made it through 2020 with my health and finances intact. I hope for the same in 2021. Writing is a big stress-reliever for me and one that I definitely need right now. SoContinue reading “2020 Accomplishments and 2021 Goals”

How I Outline a Novel

Warning: this post contains spoilers for The Cruelest Curse, the third book in my Dark and Otherworldly urban fantasy series. If you haven’t read it yet, skip this post and come back later. Plotters versus Pantsers. It’s the eternal writer debate. Like Kirk versus Picard or Batman versus Superman. The question is this: Is itContinue reading “How I Outline a Novel”

Rules: Answer the questions, link back to the creator, and tag other people. 1. Hot ChocolateContinue reading “Autumn Tag – Are you Ready for Sweater Weather?”

What I’m Working On

Writing takes time. That’s not a shocking revelation, and it’s not a problem, either. I love writing. It’s my craft and one of my favorite ways to spend my free time. That being said, it usually takes me half a year to finish a book, which means long spells where I have nothing to showContinue reading “What I’m Working On”

How to Write a Series of Superhero Fiction

I’ve made some mistakes. I’ve also written some pretty good stuff, in my totally-not-biased opinion. If nothing else, now that I’ve finished The White Knight & Black Valentine Series and am the author of five superhero novels, I’ve learned a lot. And, like the veteran superhero imparting her knowledge to her young sidekick, I’m hereContinue reading “How to Write a Series of Superhero Fiction”

5 Writing Lessons I Learned from Re-watching Batman: The Animated Series

I re-watched the first season of Batman: The Animated Series recently for the first time since I was in my tweens. (And boy, does that make me feel old.) I loved this show when I was a kid, but I don’t think I was really old enough to appreciate how brilliant it was. As anContinue reading “5 Writing Lessons I Learned from Re-watching Batman: The Animated Series”

Why I Love Journals (And You Should Too)

I’m kinda obsessed with journals. It’s not my fault. There are so many gorgeous journals out there just begging to be bought, and I’m a writer. A pen and paper are tools of the trade, so buying journals is a pretty much a business expense. The thing is… I hardly ever write in them. That’sContinue reading “Why I Love Journals (And You Should Too)”
