LONE WOLF

Lily Peterson is a wolf who hunts alone. Haunted by the attack that left her best friend permanently human, she will do whatever it takes to catch her prey.

FATE

Jason North is one of the Neuri, a pack of werewolves with special abilities. He knows he’s never met Lily before, but his instincts tell him he has. He’ll keep her close until he figures out why.

EVERYBODY LIES

A war that has played out across lifetimes threatens to consume Echo Falls. Friends become enemies, and old enemies become allies. Lily fights against memories that aren’t hers, forced toward a fate she doesn’t believe in.

Help Bring Dark Echoes to Life

I have survived abuse, moved across the world at 20 with nothing but a laptop and a carry bag, lost various non-vital organs… and yet, asking for help is still one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. I’d always rather give to others and support others than ask for anything of the like in return. But we can’t always avoid the hard things, so here I go…

Dark Echoes is my third novel and, by far (over 15,000 words more than Fading Echoes), my biggest novel. I don’t earn enough personally or from previous novels to be able to support the publication process (or price). This is where I ask you for help. Donate, share the link, like the link… Please help me to spread the word and raise enough money to publish this novel.

Helping isn’t just about money. I am incredibly grateful to anyone who likes and/or shares my project. No matter how you have contributed, consider me in your debt. Call on me when you think there is something I can do to help you out. Please feel free to let me know what you’ve done/where you’ve shared the link/etc. Believe me, I will remember your kindness.

Thanks in advance for even reading this. My dream – my big dream – is to make enough so I can run around and start playing fairy awesome-mother to other creative people who are in need. I’ll do what I can now if there is anything that you’d like to spread the word about. Please let me know.

Give and give alike! Thank you.

Done!

One more giant writing session has seen me finish Dark Echoes!

I have never typed ‘The End’ on my stories before, but this one certainly deserved it.

Now I eat chocolate.

This Is What Happens…

…when your workspace doesn’t have air conditioning.

Heat

I ended up hooking my desktop up to the television for a week or so because it’s a lot cooler in the lounge.

It’s a Heatwave…

Sometimes you have to go old school.

I hate to call it ‘old school’ because it’s not. Not really. There is something that happens with writing long hand that doesn’t happen with typing. I will often go to writing long hand to work on scenes that I’m having trouble with for that very reason. There are actual parts of the brain that become engaged when you’re writing that don’t when you are typing.

Anyway, I needed to go paper and pencil this past week because we’ve been melting in Australia.

That’s right. Melting.

We had five days of 40C+ temperatures (104F), most of which settled in at 43C (109.4F). My office doesn’t have air conditioning, so I spent as much of the past week as I could hiding in my bedroom with all my notes and such.

One must do what one must do.

Dark Echoes still isn’t finished, but I can see the faintest glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel. I have been having some big issues with this one (oh, hello Doubt and Fear) hence the delay. But chocolate makes everything better.

I still have a review of Grammarly coming up as well as a ‘weekly’ post series that I am looking at reviving. More soon.
