So Many Works In Progress

I had already set a pretty ambitious writing schedule for myself over the next year. My plan was to release A Shift in Fate in August and then release books 3 and 4 next year. I’m not the fastest of writers. If I’m in a good headspace, I can write 3,000 words in a day, […]

Weekend Plans: Editing, Zombies, and Camping

I’m just over halfway through the edits for A Shift in Fate. This is the part where things start to get tricky. There are two major things I’m changing based on the feedback I got from my editor. I’m removing one character completely. They’ll be referenced towards the end, but they won’t appear on the […]

Robot Dinosaurs

I’m enjoying a brief moment of downtime while I wait for the edits to come back for A Shift in Fate. I’ve already started writing Book Three, but my goal is to release that in December/January so I still have plenty of time. I have a tendency to overwork and not give myself breaks so […]

Busy, busy, busy…

It feels like I blinked and December disappeared. My day job continues to keep me pretty busy although I’m mostly back to working forty hour weeks instead of the 50 hour weeks I was working for a while. We had a nice relaxed holiday weekend and I’ve gotten a lot of writing time in the […]

NaNoWriMo Update – The Shirt is a Lie

Technically I did not win NaNoWriMo 2021, this is really a participation trophy, lol. After my relatively strong start I never did rally after burning out at the start of the third week. My final word count for November is 30, 073. Which honestly is still pretty good for me to write in one month. […]

NaNoWriMo Update + Writing Style

I’ve survived the first week of NaNoWriMo! Not going to lie, it’s been pretty hard. Since I have a normal 9am-5pm job I can only write during the night on weekdays. I also have several other responsibilities outside of writing that have to be done as well. So spending two-three hours a night writing on […]


It’s November which means it’s time for NaNoWriMo! For those who have never heard of National Novel Writing Month  (NaNoWriMo for short) it’s an annual write-a-thon that takes place every year in November. The goal is to write 50,000 words a month, roughly 1,667 words per day. It’s a lot. It’s especially a lot for […]


A Shift in Shadows is officially in the hands of the copy-editor! Aside from reviewing the changes and feedback I get from the copy-editor the book is pretty much done. I can’t express how happy I am to not be editing anymore. I’ve already started writing the second book and it’s really nice to just […]

Growing To-Do List

I’m a big fan of making to-do lists. Not only do they help me keep track of things but when I have a visual representation of what I need to get done it makes me stress less. A month ago my to-do list for publishing A Shift in Shadows this fall consisted of: Get basic website setup […]

Oh Hello, Procrastination!

I’m entering the homestretch before publishing A Shift in Shadows in October and still have a quite a bit left to do. Because I have a 9-5 job during the week this means I only have weeknights and weekends to work on book stuff. Here are the major things I need to get done: Finish editing. Most […]
