A Shift in Fate ARCs

The advanced reading copies (ARCs) are live on Book Sirens and Book Sprout! Since this is the second book in the Lost Legacies series and you really need to have read the first one to understand what’s going on in this one, I’ve decided to make some more ARCs available for A Shift in Shadows! […]

Second Chapter of A Shift in Fate

I’m officially halfway through the edits for A Shift in Fate. Yay!  Overall the edits are pretty minor which is nice. It makes the process more fun, and less stressful. I do have to make a fairly major change to one character, basically remove them from the book, lol. It’s actually pretty similar to what […]

First Chapter of A Shift in Fate

The edits for A Shift in Fate landed in my inbox over the weekend! The edits for A Shift in Shadows were tough and took a long time, but I don’t think that will be the case for A Shift in Fate. There were some issues I had with the overall story that I was […]

Book Cover + Title Reveal!

The official title for Book Two of the Lost Legacies series is A Shift in Fate. Woo! I really struggle to come up with titles and I had to make a decision with the second book, basically if I wanted to take a “themed” title approach or come up with a completely different title for […]

Book Two is Done!

Okay, Book Two isn’t actually done. But the first draft of Book Two is done! I’ve officially handed off the manuscript to the editor so now I get to just sit around and relax while waiting for her feedback. Okay that’s a lie too. While I wait to hear back from the editor, which probably […]

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 – Crash & Burn

In my last post I’d been optimistic about making it through week three of NaNoWriMo after really struggling through week two. I think I might have jinxed myself. My normal day job has been extremely busy the last couple weeks. At the start of the month I got a pretty big promotion which I’m really […]

NaNoWriMo Update – Midway Through!

Officially at the midway point of NaNoWriMo 2021! This week was tough, not going to lie. The first week started off great. I’d already been bouncing around several scenes in my head so I wrote the first two chapters and the first half of the third chapter quickly. Things started to slow down a bit […]

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 […]
