Christmas Sale, Polls, And Other Updates!

Hullo, friends! It’s hard to believe that it’s already December and that 2021 is almost over! This year has flown by far too fast. I just wanted to hop on here and give you guys a few updates!

First, I’m having a Christmas sale! If you haven’t had a chance to read The Villain Who Saved Christmas yet, this weekend is your chance to pick it up for FREE on Amazon! The ebook will be free from Friday, December 3 through Sunday, December 5. If you’ve already read it, I would really appreciate it if you could leave a review on Amazon or Goodreads or share the link with your friends and family to help promote the short story. It’s a fun, cute, quick read. and it’ll be free, so why not check it out?

Second, a writing update! Throughout November, I was working on getting back into the groove of writing for fun. I joined a writer’s group at my school, and it’s been a lot of fun writing short pieces and workshopping them with friends. I also took the opportunity to work on Forcefield, which is now almost at 40,000 words! The progress is slow, but once I finish a few finals, I should be able to kick it up a notch. My goal is to finish it before Christmas, so wish me luck!

Finally, due to some updates with Amazon Publishing, I now have the option to create hardcover versions of Twinepathy and Lightporter! This isn’t something I had really considered before, but I’m very excited about the possibility. Before I jumped headfirst into that project, thought, I wanted to get your thoughts and see whether or not anyone would actually be interested in hard cover copies of these books.

Additionally, I’m looking at creating a small paperback version of The Villain Who Saved Christmas; something that could be given out as a small gift or stocking stuffer. However, since it’s a short story, I wasn’t sure if anyone would be interested. What are your thoughts?

Happy December, everyone! Be sure to say hi in the comments below and let me know what you think about these possibilities. And don’t forget to check out The Villain Who Saved Christmas free on Amazon this weekend!

Albany and Brooklyn York are taking a much-deserved break from IDIA work and
visiting their grandfather’s farm. But even far from the city, they find that they can’t quite escape
their lives with IDIA—or FOE. When the twins find out that someone from FOE has set up shop
in their neighborhood, they decide they need to find out what’s going on with FOE, once and for
all. But when they learn of secrets that rock their world, will they still know who to trust?

Guys, I’m so excited about this! Are you excited about the release of book 3? Do you like the cover? Comment down below to let me know your thoughts, and what you’re most excited to see in Forcefield!

Twinepathy’s Birthday + Forcefield Cover Reveal Signups (!!!)

Hullo, friends! I am so excited about today’s post, but first I must say… It isn’t Tuesday! I have deviated from my new blogging schedule (both accidentally and on purpose) since today is the 4 year anniversary of Twinepathy‘s release. It’s hard to believe it’s been so long! And I’m very excited to announce that IDIA #3 is on it’s way! While I don’t have a release date set quite yet, I am planning a cover reveal for August 4th, and I need your help! There’s a sign-up at the bottom of this post, so if you’re interested in helping out with the cover reveal, please fill out the form.

As for Twinepathy‘s birthday, I give you all virtual cake! 😀

Are you excited about the cover reveal? I know I am! Can you believe it’s been four years since Twinepathy was released?

Can I Get Your IDIAs, Please?

Hullo, friends! I’ve been away from the blogosphere on and off for a while, and I have to say, I’ve missed it! I’m working on an update post to let you guys know what’s going on (and possibly a blogging schedule to help keep me on track??), but in the meantime, I need your help with a little project. See, I’ve been working on IDIA #3, and at this point, I’m trying to figure out where the series is going.

So that’s where you guys come in! If you’ve read any of the IDIA books and you’re interested in the rest of the series, please take a minute or two to fill out this short survey! It only has a couple of questions, so it shouldn’t take too long, and getting some outside thoughts would help me a ton.

Either way, you guys are the best! Watch for my update post coming soon!

Want Some Free E-Books?

Well, hello, everyone! It’s nice to (virtually) see all of you in all of this craziness. With schools moving online, work canceled, and various levels of quarantines going on, I’ve found myself with a bit of extra time on my hands, and I know a lot of other people have, too.

Because of that, this week, the e-book versions of all of my books will be FREE on Amazon!

Monday/Tuesday: Twinepathy

Wednesday/Thursday: The Villain Who Saved Christmas

Friday/Saturday: Lightporter

All Week: Paralyzed Dreams

My whole goal in writing and publishing these books has been to share clean, fun, uplifting books, the kind of books that I want to read. So share this deal with your friends and family, especially those who might need a fun read, and enjoy them yourself if you haven’t already! If you haven’t already followed my Facebook page, I’ll be posting reminders when each book goes on sale.

Hullo I’m Back! What Have You Been Up To?

Why hello friends! Look who’s still alive over here! Due to the craziness of school, the last few months I’ve definitely slacked on this blog. So now I return for the summer (and hopefully the rest of the year, too)! I thought I’d update you guys on a few happenings and what to expect soon.

First, I have a stash of short stories from a class I took this semester, so I should be posting those soon. Some of them are outside of my normal genre (superhero), like historical fiction and aliens, but I hope you’ll still enjoy them!

Second, I’ve been making some (slow) progress on IDIA #3, but I’m not sure when that will be released. I have another big novella-novel writing project that I’m super excited about, and that will probably be taking precedence since it’s for school. I’m definitely still working on book 3, though!

Finally, voting for the TCK Reader’s Choice Awards is still open, and Twinepathy is on the list! If you haven’t voted yet, you can read more about how to do so here.

Most importantly: I want to know what you’ve been up to! I’ve been out of the loop for a while, so let me know in the comments below about any awesome books you’ve been reading. I love talking with you guys!

Twinepathy and the TCK Reader’s Choice Awards

Hullo, friends! How is your February going so far? A lot of us are back at school now and struggling through the craziness. Don’t worry, you can make it!

I have a quick update to share with you guys. Twinepathy is up for an award in the YA/Middle Grade category in the TCK Reader’s Choice awards! A couple of you have already voted on there, and thank you so much for your support. If you’ve got a minute, would you mind heading over there and voting? The young adult section is section 12 out of the 16, and I would really appreciate your vote!

How’s your 2019 going so far? Did you get a chance to vote? I’d love to talk to you! 

The Villain Who Saved Christmas Release Day (Eeek!!)

A Christmas Short Story and Release Tour Sign-Ups!

Hello, everyone! I apologize once again for disappearing for so long. It seems like just yesterday that the school semester started, and now it’s pretty much over. Where did the time go???

But in spite of the craziness of this semester, I’ve still been able to get some things done… like getting my Christmas short story, The Villain Who Saved Christmas, ready for publishing! There’s still a lot left to do, but I’ve set an official release date: December 24th. That’s only 10 days away, but I can’t wait for it to be out!

I posted about this story when I did the 777 Challenge, and I’m very excited to finally be sharing this with all of you. So here are the cover and the blurb!

This may be Becca’s last Christmas, and all she wants is a white Christmas. But with no snow in the forecast, her brother and sister know that might not happen… until they get the idea to track down supervillain Hypothermia for help. With his ice powers, he could create a white Christmas for their sister. There’s only one problem—they have to find him first. Can they discover where Hypothermia is hiding and convince him to make it snow?

So here’s where I need your help…

I’m not planning on doing official dates for a release tour, because I know how crazy this time of year is for everyone, and how last minute this is! Instead, if you want to help out, you can post whenever you want. The book will be releasing on December 24th, and I’m looking to have as many reviews then as I can, so feel free to share this post or the form below with anyone who may be interested!

Also, for the release, Twinepathy will be free on Kindle from December 24th-28th! If you haven’t gotten a copy of Twinepathy yet, that’s the perfect time to get a copy on Kindle.

I’m so excited to be sharing this book with all of you! Are you excited? Share any thoughts, comments, and questions you have below!

Lightporter Release Day (Eeep!!!) And New Project Reveal

So because of the release, I thought I would share a little bit about my current writing project on here. Yes, I will be starting on IDIA book 3 soon (I can’t wait!), although I may save that for NaNoWriMo this year, we’ll see. But currently I’m working on a non-IDIA superhero story–Christmas themed! I’m planning to release it in early December of this year if everything goes as planned, and it will either be a short story or a novella. I’m really excited about this new project, and hopefully I’ll have a title reveal coming soon! For now, you can find it on Goodreads.

I want to thank all of you so much for all of your support! You guys are amazing, and I couldn’t have done this without you! I’m working on coming up with a regular blogging schedule so that I can try to keep posting during the school semesters, so if you have any blog posts you’d like to see me write, let me know those ideas in the comments down below! I love to talk to you guys!
