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 Christmasyet, 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 Twinepathyand 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!
Hello, friends! It’s getting to that time of year where summer is approaching, but you still have to get through finals before it’s officially here. Since summer’s coming up, I’ll most likely have more time to post (yay!), so I thought I would ask you all what you’d like to see me post about the most. If you have any questions about the options, comment below!
Thanks for your help, friends! Comment below about why you chose what you did, and have a wonderful day!
Yesterday was the deadline for the Super-Duper Fan Fiction Crossover Challenge 2… and I completely forgot to remind everyone this month.
But instead of doing yet another one, or lengthening that contest, I decided to try something different, and came up with a very intriguing idea.
In the Character Creation Contest, contestants will create a character based off of one of three pictures. There will be one winner for each picture. Winners will be judged on (a) creativity, (b) how intriguing the character is, and (c) how well developed the character is. Bonus points if you write a short story (
1. Maximum amount of characters is one per picture. You can do one for each picture, but not three for one picture.
2. This is about creativity! Think outside the box.
3. To submit, post a description, interview, or short piece with your character on your blog, with the contest button (above) and your chosen picture, and put a link to your submission in the comments below, OR, if you do not have a blog, you can submit your piece through the contact form on the Talk To The Writer page.
4. The deadline is May 31st, 2015!!!
Hopefully I will remember to remind everyone! I can’t wait to see what you come up with, so go get started! Got any questions? Ask below! Also, please vote on this poll, too:
You step into the office you’ve become so familiar with, eyeing the book room. You want to get back to some more stories, but Bri said she needs to talk to you first. “You wanted to see me, Bri?” you ask.
Bri looks up from her laptop and stops humming. She pauses the song playing. “Yes, I do. Have a seat.”
You sit down in the interview chair, a little nervously. “What was that song? I didn’t recognize it.”
Her face flushes, embarrassed. “The Song of the Cebu. It’s – it’s a VeggieTales song.”
You hold back your laughter as Bri quickly continues. “Anyway, I need help. I just finished that series of interviews with the main characters of the Teen Warrior series and I have a huge list of other people to interview. I don’t know which one to start with, so I need you to help me decide which ones to do next. I’d like for you to pick out some of the ones that sound interesting to you. And I need some new questions, too. Do you think you can help?”
Please comment below with suggestions for interview questions! Your question could appear in a future interview. And vote on the poll for who you think should be interviewed next. Choose your three favorites, and feel free to comment on why you chose them! See the previous interviews for reference:
