We lost Scythe on July 5th.



I feel like I just did this.


We lost Mad Cat on the 30th of June. It wasn't exactly sudden, his decline was over the course of a month. In the wake of losing both Amulet and Mad Cat, Scythe's been diagnosed with a necrotic tumor at the base of his tongue. It's inoperable. I will be adding to my In Memory section at the bottom of my author's page. Mad Cat now, Scythe... won't be far behind.





This one is bittersweet, to be sure. I took a week of bereavement leave. Tacomancer enters its final drafting run today.



Yesterday, one of our cats, Amulet, passed on. The morning started with an emergency rush to the vet, and in less than an hour, we were taking home an empty cat carrier. He was 17 years old, and the sweetest cat I've ever known. I'll be adding a memorial section in my About the Author section. 






Such a great feeling... All the buttons are pressed. Dropping the Keystone is green across the board for its June 1st launch. I'm still waiting to see proofs, so keep those fingers crossed. To quote Dr. Ian Malcolm of Jurassic Park, "Anything can and will happen."



Dropping the Keystone Art! 




I have a short story in an upcoming anthology from Pulse Publishing! 🤗🤗🤗 It's called 99 Tiny Terrors, edited by Jennifer Brozek. More news when I have an official date on the release!


Dropping the Keystone is still in beta, but progressing nicely. Art will be revealed on Monday!



Dropping the Keystone officially entered beta reading last weekend. I've started finalizing my cover art. It's going to look amazing! I'm working with brosedesignz again, and I've yet to be disappointed. We're getting there, guys!



It's official. Dropping the Keystone is going to be pushed back to June. I was hoping to have it out to my beta team by the end of the week, but I just reached the 70% mark on my final draft. While I won't call finishing by Friday impossible, it's highly unlikely.


I'm not moving The Tacomancer and the Cursed Blood Knife out of October quite yet, but it may be late October as opposed to early.



It's been a bit since my last update. Happy all of the holidays I just missed!


So over the New Year, I was down with Covid19. My husband caught it, too. We're both okay now. Relatively minor cases, all considered, but neither of us felt much like doing anything... I didn't write, didn't update, didn't get much done toward the goals that I have for this year. I'm trying to get everything back on track now, but there may be a few delays either for this year's projects or next years. We'll see where these things fall. As of right now, I'm still aiming for May and October for my two upcoming books.


There is something else in the works. I will share more on that soon!
