Hearing voices…
  • Alien story is on hold for a bit as I work on Witch Way book #2 revisions and another work-in-progress that I can't stop thinking about!
  • Here's a teaser from book #2 I'm super happy with (as always, no spoilers to book #1 or #2).
  • (Myles's POV) Moments passed like centuries as he waited, hoped, prayed for her wound to close up. For her heart to continue to beat. For her life not to end.
Waiting game…

  • On week #18 of waiting to hear back from a lovely agent who is reading Running From Shadows.*continues to keep fingers and toes crossed and keeps querying*
  • On week #10 of waiting to hear back from the editor I pitched to at the RWA conference in July. *also continues to keep all possible body parts crossed*
  • Am currently reading Keir by Pippa Jay (romance/science fiction)! Powerful and emotional read so far! Outcast. Cursed. Dying. Is Keir beyond redemption? 82% in and loving it! Just wish I had more time to read! One day :)
  • A favorite snippet from Keir: Fire pulsed under his skin wherever her lips touched him, and he grasped at her hair, hard-pressed to be gentle as need consumed him. It was torture beyond anything he had known. It was bliss beyond anything he had imagined. The red blaze of her passion and pleasure flooded his mind, blanking all coherent thought, binding them body and soul.
