T-minus FOUR DAYS, y'all. Only FOUR before you get the chance to read tons of fantabulous short stories and poems, all by young writers! I know four days may seem like a while if you, like me, have been waiting nearly two months for Imagine, but GUESS WHAT. I have something to tide you over! Some fun graphics AND a sneak peek of my short story, Cursed! Y'all probably won't remember, but last year, I did a weekly post all about the meaning and origin of certain names - and one
In honor of the release of Imagine in *checks calendar* FOUR DAYS, I am privileged to have the author of Angel (and one of my bestest friends), Grey S. Park on for a super fun interview! I'm mixing it up a little bit by using some questions supplied to me by Issabelle (one of the editors of Imagine) and a few of my regular ones! Check back later today to get a sneak peek into my story for Imagine, along with some fun graphics! Now, on to the interview! Was this the first time
I’m going to begin this post with a warning. Y’all will probably need it, trust me. This post will hurt some feelings, step on some toes, possibly tick a few people off...so if you find your toes begin to cramp as you read this post, I’d advise you to step away (or, I mean, if you can take it, keep reading, just do so only with the intention of learning more about my opinions rather than starting an argument). This post will definitely be a rant, and as such I cannot guarante
*facepalm* Y'all know how I promised to wrap up the tour yesterday? Yeah, that obviously didn't happen. Why? Because I had a ridiculously busy day and was thiiiiiiis close to finishing up this post when my wifi shut off. So, you know. Here we are now. A day later. Oh, well. Anyway... The launch tour has officially ended, my lovelies, and as sad as that seems, it is truly a cause for celebration!!! All of you have made the launch a HUGE success, for which I am exceedingly grat
FINALLY. GUYS, I'VE BEEN WANTING TO DO THIS TAG SO BAD I ALMOST RESORTED TO TAG THIEVERY. THEN JOELLE SAVED THE DAY!!!!!! THANK YOU, JOELLE!!!! Seriously, guys, this self-proclaimed bookworm (that was literally my reviewing username on Amazon once upon a time) was dying for the chance to do this tag! Fortunately, Joelle over at The Pen Inspired tagged me before I swiped Vanessa Hall's questions! The Rules Thank and link to the blogger who nominated you (Thanks again, Joelle!)
Today marks exactly twenty years since the events of 9/11. I think that deserves a moment of silence. Today marks the day thousands of people lost their lives and thousands more lost loved ones. I think that deserves a moment of grief. Today marks the day our nation fell in the form of two crumbling towers. I think that deserves a moment of respect for all the men and women who sacrificed for this country, who built it up before and who built it up again so that, twenty years
A few days ago I wrote a post to challenge y'all to write for Christ...and I announced my new blog, Book Nations, which was created with the sole purpose of equipping writers to write Godly fiction! Today, I'm launching the blog and inviting y'all to join the mission field! As Christians we are commanded by Jesus to teach all nations of His love, His sacrifice on the cross, and His redemptive power - even the book nations. So many strong Christians and talented writers have b
I was honored to be tagged recently for this new and unique blog tag all about biographies by the creator of the tag himself, Miles Lawson! To be honest, my experiences with biographies/autobiographies/memoirs is quite limited...I skimmed some autobiography my grandpa lent me once (and didn't even finish it) and I read The Diary of Anne Frank when I was about ten-ish...but I really don't want to relive that experience. Either way, I tried, thoroughly enjoying myself in the pr
Reviews are pouring in, y'all, and I am pleased to say that Daylight is looking like a success, all thanks to my amazing reviewers!!! Y'all are the best! Now, because positive reviews - or reviews of any kind - make my like author heart want to jump for joy, I want to share a little bit of what readers are saying about Daylight! “Out of the ashes of 911 comes Daylight, a poignant short story about a tragic moment in American history, where glimmers of hope emerge from glimmer
Y’all will remember that last week, we talked about seeker-friendly churches/Christians and how we’re not supposed to be living or acting just like the world, how we have been consecrated for God and His way of life. Well, this week, I want to come at the same subject from a different angle. Writing. Particularly writing fiction. We’re all writers here, aren’t we? Most of us, anyway. And the ones who aren’t are readers, yes? (Because it would be really weird if a non-reader w
GUESS WHAT, Y'ALL? I am officially offering e-copies of Held Captive...for free. You now have the chance to read my debut novel for $0.00, and all you have to do it review it on either Amazon, Goodreads, BookBub, your blog, or social media! Even if you absolutely despise it. I won't mind. (Okay, I will. But that is life, no? Can't please everybody.) Anyway, if you're interested, fill out the form below! If you're not, share this post with someone you think might be! Happy rea
Welcome to Day 5 of the Daylight Launch Tour!!! Today, I have two fun things to share with y'all - an exclusive interview with the main character of the story, Sylvie; and a downloadable book club kit! A book club kit contains discussion questions, a note from moi, and a bit of backstory about Daylight, perfect for book clubs (of course) or an individual reader! To download the kit, just click the graphic below! Now, let's welcome Sylvie Harpe, the MC of Daylight, as she join
September is here, y’all. I almost didn’t make it. School started August 23rd, and it has been get-it, get-it, get-it every day since then trying to write essays, post replies, study. Not to mention all the note-taking. I have, like, thirty pages of notes already and it’s only been two weeks. Point is, don’t take two eight-week courses at once. Actually, the point is that I’m glad I could make it...because I probably won’t be showing my face again around here for a while. I d
And now, for the moment you've all been waiting for... The beginning... Of the blog tour... For the launch... Of... Daylight 9/11 short story. Coming September 11th, 2021. It was too late.
The whole world knew it, the nations shaking their heads at the fallen United States, our beautiful country of hope and freedom covered in blood and ashes.
Only the devil could’ve planned something so disastrous.
Only God could save us now.
Only God could save August.
It was all my fau
