• Good Morning Monday ~ What’s on in August?

    Yes, holy crap it’s August! This year has gone so fast it makes my head spin. It was another busy week in Walkerland, and seriously I need another word for busy. My WIP, Nova Praetorian, is now at 92K and I pretty much only two or three more scenes to write. Then I can start the endless/funless job of trying to fix it. It’s an unholy mess right now. It’s written in third person, which is not my usual MO. And for the first 50K words, I’ve somehow managed to write it from everyone’s point of view, not just the MC’s. I’ve headhopped so much not even Freud couldn’t make…

  • Good Morning Monday!! And a Cover Reveal for Private Charter 😍

    Hello all!!  Holy crap it’s been one helluva busy week. I know I say that every week, but damn… One day I’ll have a spare minute or two to just breathe. LOL On the writing front, my WIP is at 80,000 words and realistically, there’s 8-10K to go. I am going to finish it this week. DO YOU HEAR THAT UNIVERSE?? *shakes fist at the sky* I AM GOING TO FINISH IT THIS WEEK! lol So I mentioned (very briefly) on Facebook about this damned WIP so I can now tell you this: It is set in the ancient Roman era. My main characters are Quintus and Kaeso. Quintus is…

  • Good Morning Monday and all the Days In Between

    Thank you everyone for the kind words of support from my post last week. Self-doubt in writers is a crippling thing. It’s also a common thing amongst writers apparently. There’s been a quite few posts on social media from other authors saying the same thing. Maybe it’s the moon, maybe it’s some weird planetary alignment mishap. I don’t even know, but damn, there are some authors pulling their hair out this week. Despite having no clue what I’m doing, and despite this story trying to kill me, I still managed to write this week. I’m now at 70K words and I’m thinking there will be another 12-15K to go. I’m…

  • Good Morning Monday! And the struggle is real.

    This is going to come off as sounding whiney… but writing is hard. LOL  As Hemingway once said, “There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.” And man, he wasn’t wrong. But, here’s the thing. Writing is different for every single author. Every author has strengths and weaknesses in their craft, parts they love, parts they loathe. We each have our Achilles heel, and do you wanna know what mine is? Me. My own brain tries to sabotage me every damn time. I get to the 75% marker of a manuscript and my brain says “OMG THIS IS THE BIGGEST PILE OF…

  • Good Morning Monday ~ And some other ramblings

    So release week of Galaxies and Oceans has been awesome! From the feedback and comments I’ve seen, Patrick and Aubrey have found their way into the hearts of a lot of people. I’m so proud of these boys and thrilled that folks love them too. <3 Over the first two to three days of release, Galaxies and Oceans went to #1 in seven countries in the LGBT categories!!  People from all the world over have quoted parts of this book and told me how much they felt these characters. To know I can touch readers with my words is an amazing and humbling thing. I’ll never take for granted the…
