Since my book is coming out next month, I thought it would be fun to introduce some of the main characters. 😄
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This is Dalan, the main character of The Hashana Stone. As the son of a wealthy commander in the king's army he was a bit spoiled, but when his father died and left him an orphan at fifteen his wealth was stripped from him to pay for his stay at an orphanage. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Dalan doesn't let his new position force him to give up his headstrong ways or his sense of adventure. 🤺
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
He also doesn't let it dampen his want for revenge on the captain who took his father's sword from him and used it to put a scar on his cheek. 🗡

thinking back to beautiful florida and wishing i could go back—but not now, it’s too hot for me there!! i think my skin might boil.
❊
pictured above is The Secret History, by Donna Tartt—a book i thought i would love because of The Goldfinch. I had to put it away about 100 pages in. I just could not resonate with any characters, they were all so bleak! this might be a personal opinion, but they just didn’t feel as in depth as Goldfinch and i couldn’t handle it.

I wish all of my books were hardcovers instead of paperbacks, but for the most part I'm just glad to have a good collection of great stories that I love. 💛

Another book review to share! Angels of the Arch is written by Lion Key, founder of @indieauthorcentral 😁
.
.
.
Gabrielle Crowe, an ordinary 15 year-old girl who lives with her grandmother, comes to realise strange things occur around her connected to water. When she befriends Leo, a friendly yet mysterious student in her school, she discovers her destiny lies far beyond the normal world in which she thought she lived. 🌊 .
.
.
As the first book in this series, I found Angels of the Arch: The Unwanted Gift a clever, promising and nicely paced read. Key writes his characters as believable, likeable teenagers which is refreshing. Woven through the story are the supernatural beings manipulating and controlling the Earth’s elements. With just a taster of their abilities and functions revealed, I look forward to learning more as the series progresses. The action takes a while to build as we get to know the characters, with the real action taking place in the second half of the book, however I found the ending created a nice balance of plot resolution alongside wonder of what is to come with the sequel. This is a different kind of fantasy read with Archangels as the main players and clever world building creating a fascinating backdrop. A really promising start to the series! .

Review of The Wicked Wolves of Windsor: and other fairytales by @byrd_nash .
.
.
I haven’t read fairtytales since I was a child, and what a treat this collection of short stories was after all that time. Byrd Nash has penned a delightful mix of adult fables, taking the reader from simple old-world times to modern day life. As with all good fairtyales, there is a moral to each story, but Nash delivers them as gentle lessons that linger in the consciousness long after closing the book. These six delicious stories contain magic, sorcery, deceit, treachery and hope, my favourite being The Queen’s Favourite. What’s not to love about a talking horse and a clever woman stepping into her power? I read this on my kindle, but with the classic vibe of these tales I feel cheated by not having them in print—something I will rectify as these stories belong bound in hardcover to be treasured. Nash’s writing flows beautifully and even though the backdrops may change from medieval to present day, the sense of fable holds firm in each tale. I do hope there’s more of this to come from the author. It’s definitely a collection to be dipped in and out of on repeat.

Day 21: Indie Film I Love - I have several favorite Indie films but this one made me laugh out loud and cry like a baby so Whale Rider is my No. 1. A close second is What’s Eating Gilbert Grape? Such fantastic performances by all the actors. My honorable mention is a film that I couldn’t verify as an indie film but I’m about 80% sure that it is. Once Were Warriors is one of the best movies ever made. Period. #authorschallenge2019 #indiesareworthit #iacadvocate #supportindieauthors #indieauthorlove #indieauthorcommunity #indieauthor

@theconstantvoice asked me a question about where i get #inspiration (real or made up) for my WIP and I thought I’d share it on my feed~
❊
all of the ideas, characters, places, powers, etc, found in my novel are a product of my imagination. i find that sometimes i do gather inspiration from real places, people, and things, but most of it becomes warped into whatever my mind sees fit—in some cases giant, terrifying scorpions that would eat you whole!! i love creating—it gives me so much joy to just let my mind run and see what happens (but sometimes it gets confusing haha!)
❊
tagging a few of you, but certainly feel free to jump in if you’d like! ᴡʜᴇʀᴇ ᴅᴏ ʏᴏᴜ ɢᴇᴛ ɪɴsᴘɪʀᴀᴛɪᴏɴ ғᴏʀ ʏᴏᴜʀ ɴᴏᴠᴇʟs, ᴘᴏᴇᴍs, sʜᴏʀᴛ sᴛᴏʀɪᴇs, ᴇᴛᴄ?? let me know below ☟

Oh, Mr. Riker! What are you doing? 😂 This feline editorial assistant LOVES plants. Flowers, trees, succulents--he's here for all of it. I've gotta be careful about what I bring into the house, though, as cats have many allergies.
.
Did you know greenery has tons of benefits for both body and mind? Research has shown that house plants lower stress levels and blood pressure. Lower stress means you can relax more and focus on what's important.
.
Besides, who doesn't love the sight of bright green and other colors? I personally love the vibe plants bring to my little office.

Do you have any house plants? Or do you not have a green thumb? °

#selfpromotesunday with this beautiful pic by @verrelight & @ollie_pls. 💛
Someone asked me recently if #LongGrowstheDark was dark fantasy. In some senses, I had to say yes...but I see dark fantasy as  a gritty story with few heroes, and this book definitely has some. 😊

as we near the end of july i’ve got to sit back for a moment and look at all i’ve accomplished. at the beginning of the month, i told myself i would write 50,000–which seemed untouchable at the time due to complications in my schedule. now, on july 21, and 42,000 words in, i can confidently say that i will be crushing my #nanowrimo goals this month

i suppose you could say this quote resonated with me when i found it on pinterest. even though it hasn’t been a year, every step you take forward is progress—even if that is just a mere 100 words (of course this applies to all aspects of work, not just writing) it’s hard to look at the big picture when you’re one step in, but once you get going, you will be able to look back at all the positive work you have done, and that is all that matters. so don’t let a day of slow work bog you down, keep going and know that every small step adds up

It’s #selfpromotesunday again! Hi everyone. Welcome back! This week I’m promoting Haunted which is the third book in the Turning Moon series where vampires, witches and werewolves join forces to defeat a shared enemy. A fourth book is in the making for this series and will focus on two of the main characters from Haunted. Theirs is a story I had no idea would grow so fast and deep for me, so I have no choice but to share it sometime in the future! In the meantime, the series is on sale through the smashwords.com summer sale. Links are in my bio if you’re looking for a bargain! .
.
.
Haunted. Book 3 of the Turning Moon series. 
Fuelled by torment, Graham plots his revenge against the Cedar Copse and Carter Plains wolf packs. His suspicious behaviour has caught the attention of his vampire friend, Tori, who once uncovering his dark secret, vows to help her friend find peace. When Tori learns the Cedar Copse pack is being plagued with reminders of the past, she befriends them, fearful that Graham is responsible. It soon becomes clear that Simon Northfell's sinister legacy is what bears down upon them, and it's not just the wolves who are being haunted; Tori discovers her past has returned to haunt her too, and as the ghosts close in, neither she nor her friends are prepared for the unimaginable truths about to be revealed.
.
.
Haunted is available through all super duper ebook retailers! To tempt you in, Bound, the first book in the series is FREE to download! What are you waiting for?!

today, i was tagged by @aarushireads to do the #fivethingsilovetodo challenge
❊
1. i love to write. i think this one was probably a given since this is my author page and i’ve said about 50 times by now that i’m working on publishing my first ever book
❊
2. i play video games just as much as i write. currently, i’m having an obsession with minecraft at the moment...probably fueled by @pewdiepie
❊
3. i love to read!! i have pictured the second book of the Legend series (i don’t have the first—should probably get it soon since it was my favorite). i’m a big fan of all genres but mostly YA and mystery
❊
4. i ski and snowboard in the winter and am on my universities team—which means going out every weekend!!! it’s one of my favorite hobbies and something i look forward to every year
❊
5. i know this is very *basic* but i also love traveling. i’ve been to school abroad and those were some of the best times in my life. i plan on also studying abroad in college and traveling to even more countries
❊
i’m tagging @sarinalangerwriter and @a.d_silver to do this challenge—of course if you’d still like to participate you’re more than welcome

"As a writer you ask yourself to dream while awake." --Aimee Bender
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I think this quote sums up why I love writing so much.😊 There's something magical about forming a story that nothing else in the world can compare to. It's like walking through the most amazing dream...a dream that you get to create. 💭🌟
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Why do you write? ✍Is it because you love that feeling of stepping into another world or something else?

Tempting as it is to do nothing more than be still like broccoli, I’m hoping to get stuck back into my #wip this weekend. After the sticky hot weather here we had a day of heavy rain and thunder yesterday so I’m hoping the air is clearer out there today for gardening too. The Teenager has been away for the week and is due home later which I’m excited about, as I miss my munchkin when she’s not here. How’s your weekend shaping up? Will you be vegetating or cracking on with a to-do list? .

What do you guys think? I find it really poignant. I find myself under the disturbed because I always feel comfort escaping into a new world through a book. ⠀

As much as the seagulls disturb my sleep, I do think they’re beautiful birds, their chicks especially. This little one is sheltering by my front door this morning and he/she is a fluff ball. At this age, they’re still learning to fly and their parents often leave them on the ground while they fetch food. Don’t worry; my cats are too wise to approach a bird this size, so it’s safe here for now. .

It's hot. Like really hot. The AC is my friend. Time to get back inside and write some more. (My hair is actually looking nice today and I'm proud)

today i’ve been tagged by @sarinalangerwriter to participate in the #todayisagoodday challenge and i’m more than happy to share what’s been making today great ☻
❊
today is a lovely day for a number of reasons, but most of all because i get to spend a bit of time relaxing in between my two jobs at the pool. i’ve also received a *signed* copy of The Goldfinch for my birthday from @gina.billys and i could be happier!!! i’ll spend these next few hours reading and working on my goal of 3,200 words—which i plan on crushing. everyday is lovely, especially when it is 85° and sunny ♡

i am tagging @m.wednesdays_inkwell and @chloeschapters to participate in this challenge

I haven’t had a decent nights sleep since last Friday, so at this stage my patience is wearing very thin. 😂 If it’s not the heat keeping me awake, it’s the damn seagulls. Deary me. I think a glass of wine is in order. For medicinal purposes, of course. 😉 .

🍊 Do you judge a book based on its cover? Or the thickness? 🍊
.

I keep looking at the size of this monstrous book and wondering when I’ll get around to read it... and the million others on my tbr list 😅
.
.
Anyone read this yet? What are your thoughts?
.
.
And check out my new candles by @sparkandsparrowperth 🧡 they smell amazing! I also got a custom order for myself... it’s an awesome candle! But no spoilers yet 😉

does anyone else have endless piles upon piles of books about writing? or is that just me?
❊
i love books about writing! i think it’s great to have them as resources when writing—but can’t rely too much on them cause in the end the story has got to come from you, not from another book telling you what to do. i find myself jumping through different resources and never really reading one entirely through—cause not one author has the “success path” set in stone (other than Stephen King...his book is pretty good and my only exception to this statement)

Dalan (main character of The Hashna Stone) doesn't take to well to people telling him what to do, but now that he's an orphan, he's had to learn to hold his tongue. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Have any of your characters had to learn to do something that completely goes against their personality? .
