Exciting times!

SO excited to announce that my books have been featured on a wonderful list Happy Arbor Day! Ebook Celebration put together by the wonderful Andrea Pearson. Many thanks to her for allowing me to be a part of this awesome opportunity.

Announcing the SWAG:

I am giving away sweet little items (such as the notebook above) tagged with my book cover for The High Arc: Guidance of Rasmiyah. For every 50 likes on my Facebook Author Page, one swag item will be handed off to one of the beautiful people who support me throughout this journey. (This along with the ongoing Giveaway Rafflecopter). I am so excited to be able to share my world and love of words with everyone out there.

A SERIOUS NOTE:

It has taken me a while to become comfortable in my own skin. I never believed that this would work for me. I have made so many mistakes (such as publishing a book without having it edited...OUCH) but I have learned from those mistakes and I am taking each lesson with me in hopes to continue growing as both a person and a writer. As I have said many times, I know that I am not perfect, and I have a long road ahead of me. But I have finally reached the point where I no longer have the urge to pump the breaks.

Working on many different projects right now as well as becoming much more organized. Yes I need a schedule to keep everything in order. (Project of tonight whoo!)

Sending out love to the world....because right now we all need it!

Many thanks to you all and as always Power to the Reader!

ALEXA
I felt her! I did, it was strange, but I felt her presence the moment she entered the temple again. It had been so long since she had been near me. And when I opened my eyes, I saw her, on the other side. Like looking through a glass wall. She stood there, and I saw it in her. She was like me now, there was a change in her, a new power, hers but amplified. Jazz. I wanted to scream out to her, but I couldn’t. How could I reach her? How could I get to her? I listened with my heart because my ears could not hear through the glass. They were moving my body, taking me somewhere safer. Safer? What did I need protection from?
I studied the room behind her, the temple, my temple. What had happened? Why did it look so different, so broken? I had to get out, Rasmiyah, that was her name, the woman who visited me before. She was right. I had to get out, I had to break free. It was completely up to me. Wanting it was not enough. I smiled at her, or at least I tried to, I couldn’t be sure if she could see it. She reached for me, the me that wasn’t trapped inside of my own head, and she pulled and the wall was gone.
I turned to face the ocean, the barrier that kept me here. “It’s time for me to go home!” I screamed at the vastness.
Everything changed for me, at that moment, I felt it, all of it, what was lost returning to me. My heart stopped as my memories slammed back into place. They hurt, physically, emotionally, mentally. I fell to my knees and clutched my chest. I had to get back, I had to help them, and I had to get Lacal back. He was waiting for me, I could feel him. He was hurting, frozen, waiting for me. And nothing would stop me from getting him.
I stood ready to return, and then I heard them. I turned and through the glass wall that had reappeared, Navare, by the hundreds, coming for me. They planned to attack, to take me down, I had no idea how they got there, but I knew for sure, they would never leave. If this was the way out, I would end every one of them.
“Bring it on!” I shouted to them as the dark cloud poured in behind them, the eyes that hung in the air, the feeling of a presence, the dream I once had. It was time to fight. The blood shed was endless, but it was never my blood. At the end of it I stood covered in their tainted essence.
“I’m coming!” They couldn't hear me, but I had to let them know, I was coming home.

Long time coming...

So it has been over a year since I posted to this blog...why? Well, partially because I got lazy, and yes, I have to admit that to you and to myself. Because it happened and I have to hold myself accountable for it. Over the last year, I did a ton of soul searching. Knowing what you want, doesn't always mean you have what it takes to really go out and get it. So here I am nearly exactly 1 year since my last post...

Lets see, whats changed?

Well, I have released a few short stories. The GIN. NEAT (short short story) series, and the HYBRID'S TALE short story series. Both have been well received and I am excited to see where they end.

Currently I am working on finishing up the third book to the High Arc Series which is titled Alexa's Adytum... Excerpt to follow. I am also working harder than ever to get my name out there, and keep it out there. I did a few freelance writing gigs with Examiner.com as well as CBS.com, interesting experiences, but at the end of the day, journalism just isn't for me.

So I am taking time to invest in me, myself, and I, as a writer, author, mother, person....etc.

The last year has taught me, if you want something....GO FOR IT. All the way, not half way, because nothing is going to just fall in your lap.
