2020 was different. It was a notable year for many obvious reasons I don't need to get into here. What I will talk about is how the year impacted me as a writer, and what habits and plans I have in place for 2021 as a result. In 2020, I published my first novella and … Continue reading Reflections, Resolutions, and News for the New Year
Witchtember is coming to a close! I've had a wonderful time promoting NASCENT WITCH by diving into all things witchy. As we creep ever closer to release day, I've decided to share the first chapter of the novel so you can have a taste of what this book is all about. Without further ado, I … Continue reading Chapter One of NASCENT WITCH
In case you missed it, this past week I revealed the cover of NASCENT WITCH to the world via my social media accounts. I'm so happy with how this book looks! And very glad to say that it will be out in the world on Tuesday, October 13, 2020. While writing NASCENT WITCH, I was … Continue reading NASCENT WITCH Cover Reveal
During this magical month of September, I am counting down the weeks leading to the release of my debut novel, NASCENT WITCH! In order to celebrate this big moment, I'm launching Witchtember. What's that, you ask? Basically, Witchtember is a month-long party with a magical theme at its core: all things witch. So what can … Continue reading Happy Witchtember!
This post is going to be a little different. I usually review and grade the things I talk about, be they movies, television shows, podcasts, or books. I won’t be reviewing this book, per se, and won’t be grading it either. That is because I know the author and impartiality is not something I can […] … Continue reading Re-blog: “Sibyls” by Melissa Bobe (2020) — twocentspluschange
I am beyond thrilled to announce that my novella Sibyls is now available in paperback! I won't gush too much here, other than to say that this little novella taught me so much about the process from finished manuscript to completed book. I am grateful for this new knowledge, and for the support of my … Continue reading New Release Tuesday: Happy Book Birthday to Me!
Happy New Year! 2020 is just a lovely number to look at, and I'm hoping that the year (really the decade) turns out to be just as attractive, especially as it relates to all things writing. With that said... I have news. Exciting news. In just a few short weeks, I will be putting out … Continue reading Upcoming Publication: Sibyls
I'm writing this post after having a really amazing conversation that I'll post more about soon! But until then, I'm thinking a lot about the book that I'm finishing, which has undergone several drafts over the course of many years. That's unusual for me, and I think it's a process that deserves some thought. My … Continue reading Writing Wednesday: A Long-Term Revision
This is one of the texts that appears in my doctoral dissertation, so I'm actually writing about a reread. Nevertheless, I think Yvonne Vera's novella is well worth a reflective post. It's a stunning book, though the content is extremely upsetting. I definitely recommend looking into Vera's work. Yvonne Vera, Under the Tongue Something I loved about … Continue reading Friday Book Review: Under the Tongue
I picked up this novella thinking it might be a light read, and was quickly reminded to not judge books by covers, shapes, sizes, or page lengths. This wasn't one of my favorites, but as with all books, I walked away having learned something that will help me to grow as a writer. Gaétan Soucy, The … Continue reading Friday Book Review: The Little Girl Who Was Too Fond of Matches
