What’s In A Name?

Standard

I’ve been thinking about this one since March 1st.

See, before my– let’s call it– crash, I was working on a revision of the first book of the AEON series. This was in response to the possibility of getting a literary agent to represent me (aka, my dream come true).

The agent actually took the time to write up extensive feedback (and I seriously can’t thank her enough for that). If you’re new to the whole publishing game, that’s a rather rare thing to recieve as many agents are so busy that they just don’t have the time to write out a two-page email. Continue reading

A Silence Ended

Standard

I’ve been unusually silent these past few weeks, so I have quite a bit to talk about.

Long story short: I’ve added to the list.  Continue reading

Standard

Why?

Because it’s release week! And I am about to reveal the titles for the next THREE (yep, I said 3) books within the AEON universe.

But first, a little talk about timelines. Continue reading

Immortalized Personalities

Standard

They say writers have multiple personalities.

In a way, this is true. I know that when I write characters, I tend to mold myself into him or her and take on their personality. I live another life with every book I write, and that life will always be in those pages. I guess you could say that’s what being immortal feels like.

Of course, some characters are more fun to write than others. Continue reading
