Confession time: I don’t actually whip through projects as fast as some people seem to think. More than once I’ve gotten the question ‘how do you get so much done?’ I suppose for people watching me, it might be a logical question. For me, standing amid the chaos I like to call my life, I’m just like ‘what things? I’m getting things done?’
He wasn’t there.
Asim gripped the staff tighter and pressed his forehead against the worn wood. A chill wind ruffled through the thick folds of his clothing, carrying the scent of coming snow.
Of course, Kyn wasn’t there. Continue reading
Any poets here? *halfway raises hand* I don’t really know anything about poetry. But I enjoy writing free verse.
And apparently April is poetry month where one writes one poem a day. So I decided to try, because why not? It’s been a challenge but it’s also fun. And I find myself writing all these little random things I wouldn’t have taken the time for otherwise.
A banished prince tries to avert a war he helped to cause, and in the process ends up as bodyguard to the enemy king.
Rebel Heir. In one sentence.
Yes, I’m proud of the hook. I feel like I have a right to be.

Healer’s Bane is out and has been released in paperback as well as ebook!
My blog notes are so boring.
write post for March 22nd. Theme of the story
Me: eh, nah. You’re fine. I mentioned that last time. Besides, I wrote snippets for the Healer’s Bane characters and one of them happens right before the novella. And is adorable.
I’ve been talking about Healer’s Bane for some time now. I’ve been thinking about it for much longer.
So this was supposed to go out Friday. It didn’t, because of reasons.
Those reasons mainly involving me not planning my time well and running things too close to the deadline.
But… I have a short story for you all!
For some time I’ve been considering creating a new lead magnet for my newsletter. Basically, something free you get when you sign up. And this is it!
If you are signed up to my newsletter, you’ll have received an email with this short story earlier this morning. Otherwise, you can sign up here to claim your own copy!
As hard as it is for my focused, goal-oriented mind to sometimes comprehend, life is about more than writing.
It’s even about more than marketing, or readers, or that next book I finish reading myself.
*skids in and crashes against wall*
I’m alive, and still busy. Maybe too busy, but so what?
Anyway, I launched Shadowkeeper two weeks ago. There’s a giveaway going on right now. And…
I HAVE THE COVER OF HEALER’S BANE FOR YOU!
I told you all back when I revealed Shadowkeeper‘s cover that it was one of my favorites. I wasn’t lying, but this one is even better.
And I have a ‘secret’ for you. While Healer’s Bane is another novella, it is going to be published in paperback!!! Finally.
I’m very excited about that. Smooth and shiny and all the rest.
Kynet hadn’t planned to be in the forefront of the rebellion. That was her brother’s hobby—rallying the people. Plotting against the leaders. Running into dangers she’d have to negotiate him out of.
That was before the Poisoner tried to kill her with many profuse apologies.
That was before she survived, her hands glowing with a strange power she didn’t understand.
With her new ability to heal, Kynet is convinced the rebellion will only doom them all. Taking the people’s pain on herself is a better and all-around safer way. After all, what is the comfort of one worth, compared to the others who can be saved?
Or will it matter at all as her brother lays plans to end the decades of fighting once and for all?
Not only is Healer’s Bane paperback, but it stands alone. I will get back to Legends of Light, but this takes place in another world with completely different characters.
The best part?
It comes out in little over a month. March 29th, to be exact.
Right. You want to see the cover. I suppose…
*grins even wider*
I am so looking forward to this release.
In the meantime, feel free to preorder the book, add it to Goodreads, and do whatever else you might want to do.
