NaNoNotWriMo Day 22 Holiday inspiration!
Huzzah! I've done it! I reached my 50K goal and finished the first draft of my NaNoNovel. So what's next for Stella Williams' great masterpiece? A crap load of editing! I know you were hoping I'd say a brilliant new release but I'm going to take some time and let this one sit for awhile. … Continue reading NaNoWriMo Day 16
With all of my re-recording finished it was finally time to export my audio files! It was a very exciting moment but still a tedious one.

It’s one of the major factors in the high cost of audiobooks in comparison to their print and digital counterparts. Narrating my own work cuts … Continue reading Stereo Goals- Day One
Whoever said, “writing is the easy part”… Well, I’ve said it a few times myself, but lately, I feel like it’s actually the hardest. So in order to keep my brain from shorting out with writer’s worry, I’ve decided to brush off a few projects I had sidelined in my quest to maintain my writing … Continue reading Stereo Goals
Shark Week is officially over and that means it's time for me to get back to work. If only my brain would get on board. All my current story ideas are totally stuck in Shark territory. Sexy marine biologists in dangerously fishy situations here I come. I probably won't be writing these to publish but … Continue reading Shark Week Blues
