I used to love blogging. I had fun doing it and I enjoyed the connections I made. But then I moved to this website and I heard some stuff about how blogging was wasted writing time and all that jazz. And THEN...I've been absent for so long that Donny Downer tells me I have nothing to say and no one to read it and care, anyway.
But ya know what? I DON'T CARE. (Well, I do...I want people to visit, read, enjoy, comment, share, become a friend. But I don't care what Donny says, or people say about the general state of blogging. I enjoy it. And without a blog, I think my website kind of lacks personality. I mean. This is supposed to be my home online, ya know? So I think it's about time I settle in and make myself comfortable. Ready? :D
Man, I've got so much I could say, but how about I keep today's post to a writing/business update?
I've got DESOLATION news! Oh, yeah, baby! Did I get your attention there? Come join me tomorrow at the Fantasy & Science Fiction Readers Lounge on Facebook where I'll make my announcement! If you can't make it, don't worry. I'll share here in a few days. In the meantime, I'm pulling the prologue from Become and working it into a prequel for the series. Stay tuned!
Deadly Sweethearts (Minnie Kim: Vampire Girl #2) is complete and off to the editor! I've also recovered the series so that the covers read more "vampire". I'll share those with you, soon! I'm already "book dreaming" book three Seoul Demon and will start on that just as soon as I've finished the Desolation prequel. Heck, who am I kidding? I've been dreaming up that story while I was writing book two, and also dreaming of book four! Ha! It's fun that way, though, because it means I've got a SERIES to write and that's exciting. Woot!
On the other side of things, I've started offering Coaching Calls. I'm primarily helping people outline and structure their stories using the Save the Cat method (my favorite). It's awesome! I'm working on building a series of free videos that will teach everything from character creation to scene structure to instruction on the STC beats. Right now, I'm offering 1-hr Coaching Calls for just $25 each, so if you're interested, let me know!
Okey doke! I think that'll do for today, yo! Drop me a comment - let me know if anyone's out there and what you think about blogging and if you're happy to hear I plan to do it more often! (Please say, yes! LOL)
