Unfortunate News

Hey nerds! I’ve got bad news.

Unfortunately, I will be halting publications for the foreseeable future.

This is absolutely not by choice and I’m very sorry to anyone who was looking forward to the rest of the Ascension series this year as well as the continuation of the Emergent series next year.

I’m not going to air all my dirty laundry, but long story short, my life is starting pretty much one hundred percent over. Therefore any money I have* will be going towards attempting to get my life together again.

I’m hoping things will stabilize in a year, two at the most, but I can’t say for sure so I’m not making any promises.

*My BMAC will still be an option for those who may be interested in supporting my books. Anything given through there will still 100% stay as cover money.

So, here’s to wading through a steaming pile o’ shit and hopefully coming out the other side stronger for it. Or even just still alive would be good lol.

I’ll post an update when things have returned to normal!


The Ascension Vigil – Available Now!

I was wrong. The remnant wasn’t gone. It had only been in hiding, and now, everything I bled for is at risk.

With the consequences of Kena’s actions laid bare before her and the truth of her attempt at the Trial haunting her, she struggles to continue leading Karua. As the shadows of her recent past threatens to corrupt her once more, she must learn how to coexist with the memories of her god and his soul-shattering absence.

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.

My First Amazon Review!

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!

My Struggles as an Indie Author

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

Our Fight

How do we succeed when the Earth is on its knees? War, famine, pestilence, and death. It’s all caused by greed.

Nowhere to run. Nowhere to hide. Sometimes it feels like we’re just along for the ride.

When do we say enough is enough? When do we pick up our swords and start being tough?

It’s time to say, “This ends now.” Never again back out and bow.

This is our home. We deserve what’s right. If it’s the only way, we will stand up and fight.
