Lazy Sunday

Hello Everyone,
So today is Sunday. Yes, the day others know as the lazy day. Some also refer to it as the day before the dreaded Monday. Monday, the day that starts off our week and either throws us into a spiraling horrible week, or a really great one. Depending on how it starts off.

Which is why I intend to start of this week in a good way. How about the rest of you?

I've got my new book "The Color Keepers" relaunching this April. When I say "relaunch" I mean it was previously up for sale, but because I was clueless on promoting and what I had to do, I quickly became upset at the lack of reviews, views and sales.  Not only that, but I knew it wasn't ready and I pushed it into being so. It still needed to have a little extra, the cover needed an overhaul and most definitely I needed something to spice it up a bit. Which is why, this time around I've added a brand spanking new character (yes, you heard right). Bonus content (added some scenes, took out a few, expanded on thoughts ect...).

And last but not least, a new cover by the amazingly amazing PhatpuppyArt -

The cover reveal will be REALLY soon and I'm SO excited to share it with you.

And I mean.... EXCITED...

Anyway, I'm off for today so keep calm and carry on!

Favorite Books, Anyone?

Hey Everybody!
So with the release of my book "The Color Keepers" coming up, I'm getting more and more excited every day. Which is why I thought, why not share all our favorite books with everyone! I love reading.

Sometimes I'll finish one and get so excited I have to tell everyone about it!

Who agrees that there is more to a book than it's pictures? *Raises Hand*
Society has become so watered down, that I find it hard to have stimulating conversation with people my age (20).  Which is why today's blog is about....


So, without further ado, I give you....


My favorite books (and yes, I realize Twilight is included, but I can't help it. *nervous smile*)


So yes, I realize some of these are kids books, but let's not forget, classics never die, ESPECIALLY Dr. Seuss and Roald Dahl, who in my opinion are brilliant and my childhood wouldn't have been complete without them :) There of course are so many more, but I'm afraid I'd keep you here for years. So please, tell me in the comments what your favorite books are and maybe even include your favorite authors for the fun of it! I'd definitely love to hear!

See you guys soon, when my book "The Color Keepers" is released this April!

The Color Keepers

First and Foremost...

My first ever book is to be relaunched this April!

It will include bonus content, a new character and a brand new cover!
Cover art by the amazingly brilliant Phatpuppy Art.

I am so excited, especially after perfecting it and re-perfecting it for over 4 years.

It has been a long time and a lot of hard work was put into it. It originally stemmed from a dream I had and something inside me just told me I had to write it down.
I had already really enjoyed writing and so this task was no trouble for me.

I wrote the first draft and it wasn't something I wanted to portray my writing skills as or my story telling. So I scrapped it. Keeping the first chapter the same throughout the whole journey. The release this release is a big thing for me. I've started on several other projects since finishing.

I write mostly fantasy/adventure novels but the new one I'm working on is more of a horror/adventure.

The Color Keepers definitely caters to both genders and is more for the younger teen group of readers.

I really can't wait to hear all of your reviews and opinions on my first book.

Thank you all!
