July was another slow month, but things are moving along. I’m preparing a query package for One With Dragons, though I still haven’t decided if I will submit Godstones to a few publishers who do not require agents before sending OWD queries. DUAT is waiting for our lead editor to recover from wrist surgery, but… Read More
I don’t have a lot to report this month, but things are moving along as planned. DUAT is still with editors and has undergone even more revisions from last time, while War of Souls is currently with my most trusted beta. I’ve also been gathering a list of potential agents to query with One With… Read More
Last month was pretty slow, but I finished DUAT, which is now in the edits folder and already undergone a few changes. While it is over the original desired word count by a few hundred, the anthology’s chief editor is allowing it due to several people withdrawing! I likely could cut enough to make it… Read More
Monthly Writing Update
Hey everyone! Sorry I’m a little late on this post, but I got caught up in this new short story that randomly came to me! I even forgot to post about starting it (which was on December 28th (I think)). I’m calling the idea “Princess in a Tower Retelling”, and without giving too much away,… Read More
Dragon WIP off to Betas!
Hello, everyone! I’m excited to share that my Dragon WIP is finally being sent off to the first round of beta readers! If you’re wondering how beta reading works, basically it’s looking for any plot or character improvements. You’d be surprised how often a plot hole is staring a writer in the face, but it… Read More

During this process, I mostly check grammar and sentence structure, but… Read More
Monthly Writing Update
Hello everyone! I know I’ve been quiet, but that’s because I’ve been staying busy with revisions on my Dragon WIP (which I still haven’t even thought of a temporary title for, but you will be the first to know when I do, lol). For anyone wondering how I usually do these revisions, I open Draft… Read More
Dragon WIP Revisions Underway!
Hey guys! So, I wasn’t planning on beginning revisions for this Dragon WIP yet, but I couldn’t help myself, lol. I was reading Clash of Kings to distract myself but only made it 60% through before I got the itch to write again. While my WIP doesn’t have much in common with GRR Martin’s Song… Read More
Dragon WIP Draft 1 Complete!
Yesterday, I wrapped up my first draft of my Dragon WIP at just over 90k words. That’s right, I’ve finally finished it! After a quick run through spellcheck and Grammarly, I am letting this draft sit for a little while before I begin the second draft. I’m not sure how long I will let it… Read More
Hello again everybody! It seems like this last month went by so slow… Well, at least to me. But that is most likely because of how much trouble I had getting words on the page. As you may recall, I had hoped to wrap up my WIP by the end of September. Sadly, I did… Read More
