Chapter One of 2019 – Done

How has this first week gone by so fast?

Good Morning!

I should really slow my roll, its barely 8 am here and I’m all ready to close what is the first week of 2019! I’m not sure what today will bring. I know that I want to get some writing done tonight, but otherwise I have met my exercise goal for the day, so cheers!

While I haven’t exercised everyday this week, I did twice. Which for me is a feat. Since I used to workout zero days in the week. While I hope to slowly improve this, I am over the moon that I am actually sticking to a semi plan and getting off my butt!

I’ve been getting a bit of writing done everyday too! I’ve completed two more chapters this week for “Wicked Little Lies” as well as having almost finished my first short stories for the “52 Prompts, 52 Weeks” Challenge.

While things still have been a bit rough and up in the air in my life, I refuse to let my anxiety get the better of me and think negatively. Or hide away in bed and act like my goals will magically achieve themselves just because I am sad.

So here’s to a positive and fulfilling year! I am really anxious to start my AuthorTube channel, its been a whirlwind and the whole recording myself is a whole new level of awkward sometimes. As soon as I get past that, I hope to see you on my AuthorTube!

So that was my first week, how was your first week of 2019? I feel like the start is always so much easier when it comes to New Year’s Resolutions. Whatever you made yours, I hope you fulfill them!

(And if not, don’t sweat. It took me like three years to finally start working out)

“Allergic to Mistletoe” a Holiday Romance about…forgetting?

AllergicToMistletoe

Hello, lovelies!

I am super excited because in exactly a week “Allergic to Mistletoe” will be released into the world!

Eeek!

As terrifying and exciting as it is, I want to dive a little bit more into what this Holiday Romance entails and what exactly “forgetting” has to do with it.

This story follows Luca and Opal, college sweethearts now married who have traveled the world and somehow fallen in love with a tiny mountainside town. They buy a house and settle in, making friends and continuing to get some work done, or lack thereof. On Thanksgiving, their boneheaded friend and neighbor, Nick, convinces Luca that it’d be a good idea to deep fry their turkey. Opal is not having it as she cooks the turkey every year but gives in for Luca.

And then things take a turn, Luca falls and manages to give himself a head injury. Opal rushes him to the hospital and by the time Luca has woken up, he’s forgotten all about the seven colorful and love filled years he’s spent with Opal. He suddenly no longer looks at her as though she is the love of his life and Opal has to decide whether or not she can help him navigate such sharp waters back to the present. 

What follows is a slow burn retelling of the past and someone hoping to change the future, through past mistakes. 

Want to know more? Find out on December 18th!

“Allergic to Mistletoe” will also be available in eBook and Paperback formats through Amazon. As always, if you do read the story and enjoyed it, please leave me some feedback! If you’d read my debut Novella “Me, Moth. You, Flame.” drop me some stars on Amazon or Goodreads!

That aside, I also wanted to mention that I will be holding an Instagram only giveaway this upcoming weekend. I am still working out the details, but will run from Saturday the 15th until Monday the 17th, with the winner(s) announced! Winner(s) will receive a free copy of “Allergic to Mistletoe, in either eBook or Paperback form, winner(s) choice.

That’s about all the news I currently have for you, I hope with everyone a Happy Holiday’s! See you soon!

 

My Fiction

Official NaNoWriMo project!

It took me quite a while to narrow down my ideas, however with a borrowed ear and some time, this story beat out the others. Titled “Where You Belong” is a story about twins Margot and Lena. Growing up with a strict mother and father who treated their family like a revolving door, Margot decides to follow the rules. Getting into private schools to appease their mother and later on taking on the ivy leagues. Whereas Lena took the rebel, misunderstood route. Falling in with the wrong crowd, but momentarily seeming to clean up her act when she falls in love and gets married.

Sadly, happy times don’t last forever. Ten years flash by and Margot finds herself in a pleasant place between her life and career. On the verge of an engagement and promotion, Margot feels on top of the world. Until one night Lena shows up on her doorstep. This time is different. She has a daughter, a daughter she wants Margot to adopt.

With no option but to step up and be the person Lena needs her to be, will Margot crack under all the pressure? Will her plans come to a grinding halt? When the dust finally settles, will Margot finally realize that conventional is overrated?

While this is still very much a work in progress, I am very excited to post sneak peeks about it!

Happy Writing!

MMYF is available for Pre-Ordering!

_Me, Moth. You, Flame._

“Me, Moth. You, Flame.” is now available for pre-order for the Ebook version!

Since I am still learning, I am also hosting a giveaway for anyone who pre-orders, which will run through October 15th! As the official publishing day is October 16th!

The Giveaway will post later today, but will be a goodie bag full of all the things that remind me of “Me, Moth. You, Flame.”

Currently, ebook and paperback formats will only be available through Amazon, but in time will expand over to Google Books as well. I still can’t believe this day is here already, but it is! I put a lot of myself into this book and if you find you do enjoy it and are wanting more, the second book will be published in 2019! But don’t let me get ahead of myself. My mantra at the moment is “One thing at a time”. So that’s the plan.

Rambles aside,

Here is the Amazon link to pre-order if you so wish & this will also be linked in my blog’s menu above!

And keep an eye out because later today I’ll be posting giveaway details!

In the meantime, subscribe so you don’t miss anything?

I hope you all have a wonderful Thursday! It’s basically pre-Friday…right?

Procrastination at its finest.

Kinda weird, but I’m still here! I feel like I’ve dropped the ball and now it’s time to get back into my schedule!

“Me, Moth. You, Flame.” Is set to publish in less than a month! With that being said, I’m looking forward to sharing snippets of that book as well as sharing my plans for its sequel and a romance nib feel I am currently in the midst of drafting. So if you’re still here, thank you and if you’ve just joined the party, then yoh have fantastic timing!

Here’s to a festive and productive autumn season. Here’s a picture of my cat, Ziggy. See you soon!
