    Talk‌ ‌Dirty‌ ‌to‌ ‌Me‌ ‌😉!‌ ‌

    Disclosure: May contain book spoilers but only in relation to… relations 🤣 Also, this is about sex in literature in case it was unclear. This is also about sex in fantasy novels that play heavily on romance as opposed to romance and erotica. Also, just in case it needs to be disclosed, I do not […]

  • Stranger in My Brain

    Stranger in My Brain

    Enjoy another piece from my Embracing Darkness collection. There’s a stranger in my brain. She let herself in a while ago. I asked her to leave, but she wouldn’t. Now, she sits there all comfortable with a smug look on her face. She used to stay out of my way, someone in the corner of […]

    A Fantasy in Darkness

    Check out more from my Embracing Darkness series. Darkness consumes me in its obsidian, a welcome relief from the blinding light of day. It wraps me in its coldness, and I let it.

I cover my ears, hum a happy tune to drown it out.  They hurt you. Hurt them back. No. I won’t.   You’re a vengeful person. Go on, […]

  • Pondering Publishing Processes!

    I’m still deciding if I want to self-publish or go for traditional. My novel is one line edit away from finished (as best I can finish it anyway) and there are things I need in place if I choose self-publishing, and it doesn’t hurt to read up on all the ins and outs of the […]

  • Great Writing Advice!

    Read more. Read less. Get writing books and learn as much as possible. Plan and outline everything. Just sit down and write. Honestly, even the best writing advice doesn’t work for everyone.  People regularly ask about the best writing advice on the writing website I’m on. So many people jump in with great thoughts and […]

  • Figuring out My Social Media and Scheduling My Blog Posts!

    Not very exciting news, but I’ve decided to start posting every Saturday and sometimes on Wednesdays if I have a lot to say. But it’s part of my I keep dipping into future marketing ideas like playing about with quirky logos or getting back on Instagram. I forgot I even had an account. Then there’s […]
