Despite wanting to publish a minimum of two books per year and eventually work my way up to more than that, at this point in time it will only be possible to do one, if that. Because professionally-done covers are in my books’ (and every book’s) best interest, I cannot afford more than one per year. This will hopefully change in the future, when my books become more well-known and actually start selling half-decently. Because of this, I won’t be providing any more estimated publication dates until I can regularly afford covers.
If you enjoy my books and would like to support the making of new ones, the biggest ways you can help are by buying copies and especially leaving verified reviews on Amazon and Goodreads.
Update: I realized the title could be misleading. It’s not referring to there literally being no more WIPs, but to the “Works in Progress” page I had under the “Novels” tab. There are certainly many WIPs going on right now and many books planned for the future, I just won’t be able to publish them very fast. If you’re interested in supporting the creation of my books, here is another way you can help:
Hello there, person who always reads my posts but doesn’t like, comment, or share. There are quite a few of you, in fact, so let’s all join around the table for this post, okay? Here we go… Continue reading The View From the Other Side
Being someone with social anxiety, friendship is something I’ve never been good at in the sense of making friends. Throughout my life, starting in late elementary school, I’ve only ever had one friend at a time, and I can count the number on one hand.

So it’s been a few days since the last post and the hurtful comment mentioned within. The gist of it is, even though that person sucks for being so rude, I’m putting it behind me. And I’m certainly not going to stop writing. What I am going to do, as mentioned in my post where I took my first hiatus, is to stop putting so much stock in other people. Continue reading Learning to Live With Criticism

Since I had already written most of this out before my hiatus, I figured I’d post it. So…
The new edition of Dragons’ Myth is officially published (paperback. EBook coming July 1st), and that means I can explain the changes. This will have spoilers, so only read if you have read the previous edition or when you’ve finished the new edition. Or if you’re a weirdo who likes spoilers, you do you. Continue reading How the Third Edition of Dragons’ Myth is Different
After yesterday’s cover reveal turned out to be a huge flop, I’ve decided to take a hiatus from social media. With almost every exciting announcement, I end up very glum and wondering why I write, because basically no one reacts to my said posts. Continue reading Social Media Hiatus
I’ve been writing actively for three -ish years (although I published my debut way back in 2012), and honestly… I constantly had doubts. Constantly. With sales being basically non-existent, zero reviews, and having no social circle to help get the word out about my books, there was always a nagging thought in my head that I’m just a bad writer.
Well, I’m beyond excited to announce that yesterday, I noticed my very first review on Amazon! Continue reading My First Amazon Review!
Anyone who’s done a smidgen of research on the differences between self-publishing and traditional publishing would know that self-publishing takes a lot more effort. That’s not to say the traditional way doesn’t take effort, but once you get a publisher, it’s pretty much smooth sailing from there. There’s a whole team working for you, and you don’t really have to worry about marketing.
Self-publishing on the other hand Continue reading My Struggles as an Indie Author
Back when I published Dragons’ Myth, it was when CreateSpace was still a thing, and I chose the free ISBN option. Using the free ISBN meant that particular ISBN would be exclusive to CreateSpace. Therefore, I wouldn’t be able to take that file with that ISBN and go print my book elsewhere. That still applies now that CreateSpace merged with KDP. Continue reading The Third Time’s The Charm
