Winged Cats for 2021

Anyone can give advice; the trick is to take to heart what affects you. This is why I like motivational quotes. Not too in-your-face, but with just the right resonance to ping interest.
So this year I continue on in that vein, but with motivational winged cats interspersed with regular original quotes. I am looking forward to the new year and the adventures it will bring, so why not live dangerously by enjoying life and making quotes with a meow factor? After all, none of us escapes life alive.

Creating with Photoshop and GIMP

I’m switching gears a little and working on a non-fiction motivational book. I’m adding my own created images via Photoshop and am looking forward to seeing what you think once I get everything situated. I’m having a lot of fun working on this, and hope you enjoy it too if I can pull it off.

Twist in the Void: new book release!

My Dark Twists Trilogy follows Shern Baxter, struggling student, girlfriend, and all around weirdo as she descends into madness and deals with the consequences. Despite being shrouded in horror and tragedy, it looks like she might be able to piece what little life she has back together in this final chapter, Twist in the Void.
That’s when she finds out her monsters are real.

Choices

People tell you you can be anything you want when you grow up. But not every dream you have along the way will bring you satisfaction and happiness. Life changes, our experiences teach us things, and our perspectives change. Wherever your dreams take you, have fun along the way, because the end isn’t the most important—it’s how you lived.

Writing and Fur Babies

I’m staying busy with my writing, considering new strategy and working on sequels and new stories. I think my favorite part of writing is to think up something, then bring it to life on paper. I love the feeling I get when I play out the story as I write (I’m definitely a pantser most of the time).
But it’s important to also take time for yourself: some relaxation time; perhaps a little yoga. I hope everyone is staying safe and keeping healthy as we all gear up to where life takes us next.

I’m baaack!

After a small break I’ve revised some strategies and am ready to get back to my blog. Nothing spectacularly earth-shattering emerged while away, just some new approaches that will hopefully pay off in the long run. What are you working on?

Book covers that convert

Everyone judges books by their covers—they are the lifeblood of book sales. I use to design my own, but recently have opted to have a professional design most of them. I think they look awesome, and my readers agree.

Fortes and not so fortes

Not everyone can be good at everything. If you work with what you’ve got and steer yourself in the right directions, you may find yourself passing by people with talent that decided not to purse as aggressively as you did.

Writing hurdles

My biggest hurdle with writing is I will type a sentence and put the wrong word down; do you sea what I mean? I try to edit things carefully before I publish or send out emails, but things still slip through the cracks. What’s your biggest issue with your passion?
