Writing is hard, y'all. Really hard. And not just the putting together of the book words (though there are a lot of words that have to be put together to create a book and you have to come up with all of them) but also the putting the book out into the world part. 

A book is a piece of you, and you are sending it into the expanse of humanity and some people will love it and that will make you feel good. Some people will hate it...

I am so excited to have Kandi Wyatt as a guest today! She's celebrating the cover reveal of her latest book and sharing with us some behind the scenes goodness on how she builds the worlds of her awesome books. (Keep scrolling to see the new cover!)

Making up a world is the best part of writing for me. Often I’ll take my time, like Skymnia and Muintir in my current work in progress. The idea for their planet came from my husban...

My 2019 word of the year has been Breakthrough. I talked all about it back in January and just read through that post again this morning. It was a little invigorating remembering all that God had been speaking to me in those cold winter months. 

What I didn't share in that post was something God had spoken to me during a prayer time a few months earlier. It was something I was keeping close to my heart, a secret between me and...

EEK!! I'm so stoked to welcome H.L. Burke to the blog today in celebration of her new release, Heart of the Curiosity! Scroll down to find out how discovering your purpose plays into this epic story as well as her own life. 

“Because a person’s knack says something about them. Muse's means she's graceful and lighthearted. Yours means your dependable and smart. Emilia's means she's shrewd and perceptive. Reid ... well, he really...

"When a unicorn waltzes into Daisy’s pasture, a poacher shows up, who will stop at nothing to gain the unicorn horn and its tears."

     My friend and fellow, former Vox Dei author, Kandi Wyatt has a new book releasing just in time and perfect for National Unicorn Day! She was kind of enough to stop by and give us all the details.

In just a few hours, 2018 will end and 2019 will begin. Whether you go out with friends, countdown in front of New Year's Rockin' Eve in your own living room, or go to bed early, the new year will come at the stroke of midnight. Are you ready for what it holds?

In The Chronicle of the Three: Eden Sword (the final installment in the trilogy) Zoe is struggling to celebrate as her destiny weighs on her. Thankfully, she's got Danie...

EEK! Here's an early Christmas gift from me to you, a TCO3 Trilogy bonus short.

I hope you enjoy it!

      The last couple of weeks, Maggie had been more over-the-top than normal and Lucas found it a bit exhausting. He couldn’t take much more holiday cheer or he might crack and go back to his villainous ways. 

     “You’re being a Grinch,” Maggie had told him. 

     “Well, I get where the guy was comi...

Let me begin by bursting your bubble just a little and tell you that I'm not Ellen or Oprah so these 12 days aren't coming with daily prizes. (Sorry, I hated to do that.) They do come with the gift of connection, sass, fun and a good dose of Maggie's holiday spirit (which sounds like a lollipop flavor...I'll get on that). There may also be a little surprise in the works for my readers on one of the days. (Keep an eye out on DA...

Vampires, and werewolves, and high school! OH MY!!

You'll find all of the above in The Knight's Academy series by Emerald Barnes. I've written about it before (cuz I love this series) and I am writing about it again because a third book is coming soon!! EEK!!! (Yours truly may have gotten a sneak peek at the manuscript and it is awesome!)

The Marked and The Hunted are all about a girl, Myka, who ends up at this private school wi...

With The Chronicle of the Three Trilogy complete and a couple new projects (The Wolf Queen and The Wayward) in the works I got to thinking about the similar themes and imagery that keep recurring in my writing. Let's talk about it, shall we?

There's always a little bit of sass. I mean, it isn't all TCO3 level but it's there. I like sass. I enjoy a little humor and sarcasm to break up the tension. (Trust me, in The Wayward you'r...
