How it’s going

In a classic case of “bitten off more than I can chew” (all the puns intended šŸ˜‰ ), I’m working on far too many things at once.

  • Editing Charline’s Solstice, which is actually with Beta readers right now and it is so hard not to dive right into corrections
  • Working on a contemporary queer romance for my pseudonym, Lauren Edwards
  • Planning for NaNoWrimo
  • Beta reading a high fantasy m/m romance and a contemporary m/f rom-com
  • Trying not to stress about sales–or lack there of–for Sara’s Moon
  • Put together marketing materials for, well, everything
  • Actually put out a newsletter

I’m sure I’ve missed something, but that’s the gist of it. Some of these things bring me joy, most however, bring me stress. Is it too much? Probably. Am I able to trim it down? Not likely. In fact, odds are I’ll probably add more to the list that shockingly never seems to shrink. Grody things like research and reading how-to books. I’m sure things would move along much more swimmingly if–I don’t know–I actually did the things instead of staring at them in the corner with trepidation. But thus is the life of a writer, or at least this one.

I wish I had something more poignant to say, something to intrigue and excite, but alas, I’m merely here, chugging away.

In lighter news, a cover reveal and official release date will be dropping in the coming weeks as well as pre-order links for Moons of Mystery Book Two. Join the newletter to make sure you don’t miss out!

Release Day & Other News

It’s official! Sara’s Moon, Moons of Mystery Book One is out in the world for your viewing pleasure.

If you haven’t already, you can snag your copy here!

**Don’t mind me as I pass out in a corner from a combination of disbelief and excitement.**

And in even better news! The paperback is officially live for purchase on Amazon. Special Note: For anyone that “purchased” the paperback yesterday, double check to make sure your purchase went through. I would hate for you to miss out on physically owning this amazing story and that glorious cover. (I’m not biased or anything. Promise.)

I honestly never thought this day would come. Sure, it didn’t happen quite the way I imagined it would when I started seriously writing a decade ago, but I’m here now and I’m incredibly proud of the book I put forward. I hope you love it every bit as much as I do! For anyone interested in a signed copy, shoot me a message through the site and we’ll see what I can do to hook you up šŸ˜‰

Woo. After all the excitement leading up to and actually publishing, I’m not sure what to do with myself.

Just kidding.

Now I’m off to edit….**drumroll, please**….. Book Two! Charline’s Solstice.

New Year, New Look

I get it. I’ve been wicked crazy absent of late. Can I blame it on 2020? Probably. Will I? No. Truth is, it’s been an interesting combination of biting off more than I can chew and “I don’t wanna.” Childish, maybe, but the truth nonetheless. So how about I catch everyone up to where we’re at?
