On February 8th, 2018, my husband committed suicide. I can't write. I don't know when I'll be able to again. I've exhausted the posts I had scheduled, and though I keep opening up the various tracks to continue, nothing is coming. I shouldn't say I'm incapable of writing, because I keep a journal full of … Continue reading Update
The final installment of The Ice Queen Trilogy is now available in eBook and paperback! You can order it HERE, or use the link on the sidebar. The Shadow Throne is dedicated to my best friend and the man that forged me, Cole. I miss you. I'll be back to the blog soon.
I had some posts scheduled for the coming weeks, but I've moved them into March owing to a great personal shock. I think it's human to retreat inward at times like these, but I'm thankful I have a wonderful group of friends to hold me together and family that have stepped up more than I … Continue reading Hiatus
Something I've wanted to do for a long time is to explore the relationship between Valtteri and Sofia. They met when Valtteri was twenty years old, in the middle of the scandal that cost him the princedom, until Aria got it back for him during the civil war. Though Valtteri and Sofia drifted apart over … Continue reading New Track!
I'm back after the holidays. BUT: new year, new alternate universes! What if Aria remained a courtesan in Tower of the Moon? And what if she met Liam, then prince of Iotorath, in a gathering house in the brothel district? When I return in January, we'll find out what happens. Happy holidays!
The Shadow Throne, Book 3 of The Ice Queen Trilogy, is now available for preorder! Check the link here, or follow the link on the sidebar. Mark your calendars for March 12th, 2018! Cheers, friends.
This post is strictly celebratory. I finished the first final draft of The Shadow Throne last Thursday, and with one more quick edit (since I edit as I go), it will be ready to go to beta readers. I also have the cover designed, as of Saturday. With that in mind, I should be looking … Continue reading I finished the trilogy!
It's good that I took these few weeks off (ending November 20th), strictly because I had so much work to do on the second act, I don't know how I would have kept the blog updated. The Shadow Throne is sitting at 98,000 words as of today, which is about the length of The Ice … Continue reading Thoughts on The Shadow Throne
I really need to work on The Shadow Throne. I open up Google Drive and it's like it's staring at me every morning. Judging me. The second act has so much Liam. It's going to be a blast. I'm doing the thing. I'll be back with more alternate universe tales on Monday, November 20th. Valtteri is going … Continue reading Taking a Break…
We're reaching a convergence of alternate universe tracks I wanted to explore, in that if Sebastian won the bid for Aria's virginity, freed her, and gave her an army to go home, I also think it likely that Aria would meet Valtteri before Casimir. I've always viewed Valtteri and Casimir as two sides of the … Continue reading A Subtle Shift
