I found a sidebar option for my links. I will be updating the widget over the next week. I may have to change my theme for you to see it right. So happy new year! Expect changes here. 💜
Soul Drops is three poems from completion. So I am planning to have the next volume ready for words. I believe that Soul Drops will be available for purchase by December the first.
My new volume, as you can see will be titled Spilled Verse. The cover design is mine.
Not trying to jinx anything, but I put in an application to be in the winter edition of Creative Rising E-zine. Keep those fingers crossed and I will update you as more info comes in.
So… In the past I have been awful about updating this blog. I am hoping that if I do a bit of a schedule it may help. So I decided to post my plan… Please be patient with me as I may still lapse.
Monday : poems. That will be the day when I share any poetry that I feel like sharing.
Tuesday : teasers. I have a children’s chapter book that I am working on currently, and Serena has her second book in her zombie apocalypse series. This is when I will be sharing teasers and updates on the work we are doing.
Wednesday : webcomics! This is going to be where I discuss webcomics and perhaps other fandoms.
Thursday : Reviews. Both tech and books. I am a geek who reads a lot. I really need to start doing a review segment on here.
Friday : writing helpers. This is where I will be talking about the technical difficulties that come with writing.
I am not scheduling weekends. And I may end up posting random other than the schedule… Cause life. You get it, I am quite sure. Also I may be less accurate to the schedule in November. I am doing the pad challenge and Serena is doing Nanowrimo. So I don’t know how much extra time for blogging I will have. But I will be posting. Just figure it will be less than I am hoping for.
So I have been very sick or this post would have been made last week. I have finished writing the poetry for Temporal Verse. I am working on layout and will be posting links soon.
I am going to be doing the inktober challenge… And I will post the pictures of it daily. However, I will likely not be posting long descriptions with. As that would make it harder for me. Inktober, for the uninformed, is a daily drawing challenge. I will not promise that mine will be the best art out there, as the challenge draws some amazeballs artists. I am going to try to post here and twitter and instagram.
Then I plan on doing the pad challenge in November, and Serena is doing Nanowrimo. So I will try to post some of the results, poetry and teasers for her. I am not going to promise that because I may not have any extra time.
I have started branching into other places to sell my books. Draft2digital offers me options for many venues. I will be next week doing a post up with the links that I have already, and I will attempt to update it monthly.
There have been discussions on doing an audiobook version of Rust, Gore, and the Junkyard Zombie as a anniversary release. If we do it, then it will be May.
I have a couple of poems from the new volume to share, I will do it in a separate post. This is mostly just upcoming news. ☺
Also, I have been posting on Facebook a poll. The title for my next volume of poetry… I am leaving in fan hands. Cast your vote.
- Soul Drops
- Dream Drips
- Dream Drops
- Muse’s Masterpiece
- Poetic Reminders
So I have been accepted by another literary magazine. So I think that I will need to do a list of places… Other than my own publications that I have been published and what was published. Some of these are still upcoming. Approval often happens well before the printing.
Creatives Rising, Issue 1, Poem
Issue 2, Art
Issue 3(upcoming), Art
Down in the dirt. Jan/feb 2019 issue poem
bewildering stories, issue tbd (should be 762 or later, roughly a month from now give or take.) Poem
This list is obviously subject to update. I am starting to get braver about sharing my stuff. It is not an easy thing for me. I am so tickled by the response I have been getting.
Also with the change in createspace to kdp… I have been thinking. I am debating whether or not to keep my poetry volumes and kids books in Kindle unlimited or to do it over the other platforms. Weigh in with your opinion?
Well Serena has been busy today. Final word count for Life, guilt, and undeath today gained 876. I have been penning many new poems, two of which are above.
Those of you who missed it, did you know that one of Serena’s stories was featured on a YouTube channel?here is part one & part two. Also both Serena and I will be featured in 2019 on the blog of a dear friend and fellow author. Author Deedra Mosley
Go check out her blog! I will be the featured author for January and Serena will be March.
I am lucky enough to have been accepted into the fall edition of Creatives Rising Ezine. My digital art will be there. Stay tuned for links as I get them for subscribing if you have not already. There is some truly amazing Creatives involved as usual with this edition. It is always an honor to be a part of such a wonderful zine.
I have been looking into local events and am seeing several in my region. I am hoping that transportation becomes a little easier and that I can try to attend a few. Any events that y’all want to see me at? Let me know and I will look into adding them to my possibilities.
Serena is also writing a short story for an anthology of dark faery stories. Watch here for more info on that as well.
