Rejections and Acceptance!

Cornered Pawns 

comes out 

September 26, 2024!


Due to some craziness, my book is now with a publisher called Flick-it Books! It’s great news because this publisher is more communicative and has an enthusiasm that is contagious. The overall aesthetics of this publisher's books are impressive. I love the covers and can’t wait to check out some of the other authors who work with Flick-it books. Yay! New stories to read.


Cornered Pawns is currently with the editor. I’m excited to see how this part of the process works. And as it says above- we have a release date! The first Stephen and Ash adventure will be available for purchase. After all the writing, edits, critique partners, rewrites, and more edits, I doubted my book would ever see the light of day. 


Currently, I’m working on Book two. I have a tentative title, but as with Cornered Pawns, there’s no guarantee that will be the finished title. Book Two has some returning characters, and also a few new faces introduced. I’m also toying with a new idea, but it’s in the very early stages of rough-drafthood. 


New book review! 


I’ve been into Thrillers lately, and just finished FantasticLand: a Novel. I enjoyed it so much, I wrote a review. It’s been a while since I’ve reviewed anything. I forgot how fun it is to review books! Check it out with the other reviews. 


I’m currently reading a slew of new books. Reading helps motivate me to continue work on my stories. New reviews should appear more regularly. Reviews help me process what I’ve read. Things that work for the story, things that didn’t. It’s helpful to break it down to better understand the way novels work.
