If you’ve read any of the alternative scenes from the original draft of Kindred Spirits I posted–or if you were one of the unlucky people who, to my embarrassment, were sent the wrong Kindle file on the day the book launched (a faux pas that was quickly resolved by my publisher, so if you blinked … More Character Inspiration: Derek Brandt
For once, my schedule is pretty clear this entire week for working on my novel (except for that one day that I plan to eat myself into a turkey and pie coma). In order to keep it freed up, I’m limiting the time and brainpower I spend on other things (like this blog) throughout … More Deleted Scene: Ghost of a Chance, #2
I had wanted to write an actual blog post for the back half of this week, but it turns out that after a week of writing and pitching freelance articles, I just don’t have the brain power for anything too thinky. Normally when that happens I would just update you on how the book is … More Friday Links: Weeping Women, Horror-Writing Robots, and Ghostly Novels

On the outline there are nine scenes left to go in the second act, and then another six in Act III. At this rate, I ought to have … More Quick Bound Spirits Update!

I need y’all to work your magic again because Kindred Spirits is nominated for Cover of the Month for the month of August at AllAuthors.com! It just barely eked into the second round and is currently … More Newsy Bits & Progress
Since my last post announcing my blog break while I focus on writing Bound Spirits, I’ve added a little over 10,000 words to the 10,000 or so I salvaged from the initial draft, bringing the total so far to 22,275. I wanted to get to at least 30,000 by the end of this month, so … More Bound Spirits: Making Progress
This is both a book rec and a movie rec. About a year ago my husband and I spent a Netflix and Chill session watching a movie I’d never heard of–Odd Thomas, starring the tragically late Anton Yelchin as a young man who sees dead people–and then does something about it.
