Flowers is Published!


That’s right! The short story sequel to The Lady of the Vineyard, Flowers, is now published on Amazon Kindle! You can read more about Flowers on my website. I made a whole page for it and everything. 😛

By the way, my website was recently redone by Mukta of Design Pique Studios. It is absolutely lovely. Thank you so much, Mukta! ❤

And … that is really all I have to say. So, yes, this is an unbelievably short post, but you must forgive me. That is truly all I have to say.

Until next week,

Introducing “That Plot Bunny”

Introducing _That Plot Bunny_

Apologies for this post being so late! I’ve been having a busy last couple days, what with school and work and writing and editing, and I haven’t found a lot of time to blog! Plus I spent most of my blogging time working on AAWC instead of my regular book posts. 😛

Now, a couple posts back, I mentioned a story that I’m going to be working on throughout the year – “That Plot Bunny.” I also hinted in another post that it’s set during WW2, and bits and pieces about it have leaked in the comments section.

And … today it is time to delve into the world of said plot bunny! (Are you excited? I’m excited. Talking about my books is another excuse to talk about myself.)

Happy 2017th Birthday, Jesus!


This is going to be short. It’s my last post for the 12 Days of Christmas party; after that, we will TRULY be back to regular posts*.

Right now, I’m going to talk about the most important birthday ever!

I’ve decided to add some brief authory updates at the end of this post just ’cause I can’t resist talking about myself. *is super egotistical* *as y’all know*

*I mean it this time! Really! Regular posts! (I bet I’m going to randomly decide to do a hiatus or something … hopefully not though …)

12 Days of Christmas: Esther Ashton’s New Dress


Hello Folks!

Well, it’s time for Day #10 of the 12 Days of Christmas Party … and today I have a special treat for you! Okay, maybe not a “special treat,” but it is something special.

It’s the release of a new short story! Esther Ashton’s New Dress is purchasable on Amazon Kindle for just $0.99, but … since I know most of y’all are cheapskates, you can also just read it here. (There’s no link. Just here on this post, haha.)

(Also, because I’m going to have this book be free whenever I get the chance, it will eventually be perma-free, and … you know. I’m not stingy. 😛 It’s a Christmas gift.)

12 Days of Christmas: Blog Tag!


Hello Friends! Welcome to Day Four* of the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Party, hosted by the marvelous Faith L. Potts of Stories by Firefly! I’m teaming up with 21 other bloggers to share the true meaning of Christmas – and have a great time while doing it!

For my first post for the 12 Days of Christmas, I’ll be posting a blog tag that anyone is welcome to take part in. You can view the questions here on Faith’s first post.

AND … that is all! I’m leaving my regular blogging schedule behind a bit next week with a post on Monday (and another the Monday after that, Christmas Day!), but otherwise, nothing is changing … except Christmas is here!

*I didn’t do the first 3 days; I’m going to be posting 5/12 days. 12 posts in 12 days is a lot of posts! *applauds the awesome folks who are doing this* *and Faith, who is doing 24!*

Update #3 + We Need You Questions! (again)

Update 3 + We Need Questions Again!

Happy Wednesday, people reading this post (even if you’re not reading it on Wednesday)!

Yes, this is another post that’s getting out a wee bit late. Well, if you’re not in Pacific time (which most people I know online aren’t for whatever reason). Here, it’s not that late. (Or at least I don’t think so; any time before eleven is early morning to me …)

We’re halfway through the months of November … but I haven’t reached halfway with my novel.

Nope, I’m not behind (I actually have 28,631 – haven’t written yet today, though), but I don’t feel that I’ve reached the midpoint of my novel. I … guess it’s gonna be a bit longer? No problem there. 🙂


NaNo2017: My Last-Minute Prep and the First Few Days

Copy of Beyond Her Calling, characters

Wow, can you believe it’s already day four?! NaNoWriMo is flying by! I mean, four out of thirty isn’t much (only about 13%), but it’s still several days which I’ve spent writing like a maniac.

But, before I start talking about my (amazing) NaNo progress, let’s talk about my last minute prep.

Really all my prep was last minute. I didn’t start outlining until early October, and then I put it off and put it off until … I did most of it a week before NaNo, quite a chunk of it on October 31st!

Introducing the Characters of Beyond Her Calling

Beyond Her Calling, characters

Hello ladies and gents!

Now that we’ve actually begun NaNoWriMo,* I decided it was time to actually introduce you to my NaNo novel & my NaNo-prep process. Even though we’ve already begun so technically that’s all over. Just … ignore me tardiness. Pretend it’s two weeks ago.


I thought I’d just dash up a post and give a brief introduction to both, but you already know the basic plot (or you can just by reading the blurb on NaNoWriMo or my WIP page) and my basic outlining process, so either I’m going to have to do something slightly more complicated, or I’m going to have to be #lame.

Weeeeell, I’m lame in enough areas of my life. Allow me to introduce you to the characters of Beyond Her Calling and how they came to be.

25 Spoiler-Free Facts about Ivy Introspective

A few months ago, I posted 25 Spoiler-Free Facts About The Dressmaker’s Secret. And if you thought I was just going to do it for one novel, you were wrong. (No surprise there, eh?) (What?! I’m kidding!) (You are a very smart person … you’re just dumb about this one thing …)

I stole this idea from Victoria Lynn @ Ruffles & Grace (and other authors who have done things like this). Thanks for the idea, friend(s)!

So, without further ado, we’ll list …
