Now, to get all anti-me for a moment…
What excitement are you celebrating this week?

The Secret Slipper — coming soon!

This last week has been great! I mean, I was down almost every day sick BUT that gave me time to edit Slipper and work on formatting it. So…we have a release date!

 

That’s exactly one month from today! I’m so, so, so excited!!! This has been so very long overdue (in my opinion) and you all have been such a wonderful encouragement to me in the writing and editing process. I appreciate you all so very much!!
If you haven’t already, “The Secret Slipper” can be added to your Goodreads list (as an author, adding it to your to-read list, even if you’re not going to read it for a year is very helpful!).
And if you want the opportunity to READ “The Secret Slipper,” the sign-up for blog tour and review reading is up now. Sign up here! And if you have friends who like to blog or read, go ahead and send them there too. I’m so ready to share Lia’s journey with everyone!

Keep your eye open on Tuesdays at my personal blog. I’m bursting to share even more about Lia and Raoul with you all.

Update

Hi everyone!!

It was last week sometime that I realize… I have so not been posting on here! *insert frantic face* I am SOOO sorry!!

If you want to stay most faithfully updated, I am active on my FB Street Team and Instagram. I know that I had originally started this blog as an “off-FB” type of street team… but it has been too hard to juggle all of my social accounts. My sincerest apologies.

So, this lovely Friday afternoon, I shall update you all!

Slippers is in the midst of a cover reveal!! Here’s the latest…

Cover reveal 08

Each puzzle piece reveal had a quote to go with it, so either look on my blog or Instagram to see them all!

I’m about to sit down at do some serious last-edit stuff with Slippers. I don’t have a specific release date yet.

Also on the writing…

I’ve got a March goal!

March 2017 writing intro

This, I’m daily (or mostly daily) updated on Instagram or FB. As of last night, I’m at 3436 of 7500! So grateful to the Lord for allowing me writing time! Oh yeah, what project? Sorry… you can’t know yet. 😉

Also on my desk is Journey of Choice. I set it aside for a few months and read a few books about how to write a NOVEL (who knew? It’s way different than writing a novella). I was going to focus on it for March, but then I remembered Slippers. That’s kind of important to get out there soonish. 😉

So, that’s me and my writing! What have you been up to lately? Any goals for March?

Journey of Choice 012

If you’re subscribed to my writing newsletter, then you know that nope, I’m not doing NaNoWriMo this year. 🙂 I haven’t done it yet, actually, as Novembers tend to be super busy for our family. BUT… I am going to try really hard to get 20,000 words done in Choice. Already I’m lagging a little behind and need to step it up. Prayers really appreciated as I’m in the home-stretch!

 

 

 



What is one of your favorite things about the Civil War era?

Journey of Choice 011

Time for more quotes! One of the things that I “dreaded” the most about writing Choice was the battle scenes. I’m not so sure I’m doing a swell job with the rough draft, but it’s coming. In fact… I think I like writing fighting scenes!

 

The following quote about the Hornet’s Nest is true history. A regiment is supposed to be 1,000 men. From what I’ve researched, The 18th Missouri never really reached full strength. But after the Hornet’s Nest, there were only about 300 men left in the regiment who were not killed or captured.

*spoiler alert* Yes, one of my characters that is close to Nat ends up captured by the confederates in this chapter! 🙂
