Going on Hiatus...

Hey everyone.

I have decided to go on a blog hiatus for a while. I'll still be around every now and then on social media, but keeping up with the blog and writing updates is going to be a little more difficult, as there has been no update and there might not be for a while.

This is not something I want to spend a lot of time on, but I do suffer from a mental illness. As of late the symptoms have become debilitating. I am in treatment and I am making strides toward recovery, but that does mean that I do not have much mental energy to spare. This is why it has been so hard to get words down on paper for upcoming projects.

Therefore, for now, the blog is going to be on hiatus until I am doing better. It could be a couple weeks or a few months, but if you follow me on social media you'll probably still see periodic updates from me.

I hope to be back soon.

Thank you!

All the best!

I Hate Daylight Savings...

Ugh, today is Daylight Savings and, as always, it screwed me up!

Because of all that, late blog post today!

I was thrilled to discover that The Faith is featured as a "Hot New Release!" My jaw hit the floor when I saw that, and there is still a part of me that is completely shocked.

We're approaching the final 5 days before The Faith is released. Between hyperventilating and trying to avoid working myself up, I have managed to plan the release party for the newest title!

This is going on now until March 19th!

Now, onto writing updates!

Into Oblivion
     -Red Edits Round 1: 11% complete

Edits have started! I am actually getting more excited for this book as I edit it and work through it. Writing it felt very disjointed, but it seems to have come together better than I anticipated and I think I'm going to really enjoy working on this series from now on.

Total Words in March (so far!): 15,501

In Progress
The Sacred (The Faith Series Book 2): 5,126 words - 2% complete
Wander the Lost (Roadside Paradise Book 2): 3,812 words - 1% complete

Yeah....I know, not much change here. I am writing! I promise! Just...not these projects. But as soon as I get through my appointments today and tomorrow, I will be sure to sit my butt down and get cracking on these projects!

Writing Update, Finally!

Happy Sunday everyone!

I'm hoping to start putting myself back on track now that everything with The Faith has wrapped up.

In case you missed it thought these last few weeks, I have been releasing little bit on The Faith. Last Friday the book trailer was released (featured below) and now The Faith is open for pre-order!

I can't believe that it's already getting so close to The Faith's release.

As usual, I am super nervous!!

But, that also means I have some updates on what's going on on the writing front.

As I said in an earlier post, the word count below is not accurate to all the writing I have been doing this month. There is another project that is massive and I have been working on it continuously for years. Lately, with the work on The Faith, I have found my inspiration to work on it once more, so it has been taking some time away from other books. But not to worry, I still plan to spend some time with the books I plan to release soon!

I just want to let you know that, if the word count seems low it is because the huge project is taking time away from these guys. Hopefully, in a few years, I'll be able to release this huge project, but there are still a lot of factors that need to come into play before I can.

So now, moving on to the updates!

This book will be available on March 17th. Of course, if you subscribed to my mailing list, you got to see the first two chapters already! Lucky ducks! The rest of you will have to wait until March 17th. You can subscribe to my mailing list below.

Into Oblivion (Final Word Count: 57,851)
     -Red Edits Round 1: Starting March 11th!

As with all my books, I like to let them sit for a while, untouched, before I start editing them. I have a tentative editing schedule going for this book, aiming for a May release, but I have not officially planned a release date yet. I also am not sure when I will release the synopsis and cover, or if I will do a trailer (might be a really short trailer). Once I start editing it, I will let you know my plans.

Total Words in February: 25,398
Total Words in March (so far!): 13,905

In Progress
Into Oblivion:  57,851 words - 100%
The Sacred (The Faith Series Book 2): 5,126 words - 2% complete
Wander the Lost (Roadside Paradise Book 2): 2,216 words - 1% complete

Yes, Into Oblivion is where most of my words went for both February and March. For various reasons, I pushed aside The Sacred and with the big project going on in the background, I have not had time to do much work on it. I started Wander the Lost, which is the sequel to Into Oblivion while I had a launching point in my head.

I hope to dedicate a couple hours to both of these projects in the coming weeks. The craziness of personal affairs, visitors, and other real-life things is slowly ebbing. That means I should be back to my normal schedule and can devote time to these books as I need to.

March is here, that means spring is fast approaching (finally!). My new year's resolution to release 4 books this year is already down to 2, so I hope I can keep up this pace and reach that goal!
