A Glimspe of Inspiration

You know that feeling you get when you're working on something and you just KNOW it's going to be amazing...and then it is?!

Yeah, I'm there.

Over the past 6 months, since finishing my last Shine novella, I've been hard at work on a fantasy romance novel. I've received the manuscript back from my beta readers and have dedicated the month of February to getting all edits finished. 


Now, I know you're all curious to know what it's about, and while I'm not ready to tell you, I thought I'd share a glimpse of what I've been using for inspiration. I hope to be able to share more about it later on in the year. Enjoy these inspirational images I used for this project.

#PinFic Fun



I wanted to take a moment and share my newest writing project. In trying to maximize my usage of all types of social media, I've noticed the very popular picture sharing platforms are under utilized in my platform building efforts. To correct this oversight, I've turned some of my short fiction into PinFic on my new Pinterest board, #PinFic Group Board. I'll be adding pins of new and old short short fiction. If you're interested or intrigued by this idea, I encourage you to check it out!!

A to Z Challenge: Z is for Zenobia Fox

Ra-ra-ri, I made it to Z!!!! *Cue balloons, confetti, and celebratory trumpets*

It's been a long month. If you've stuck with me through the entire A to Z Challenge, then you deserve a wild round of applause.

To celebrate the letter Z, I'm sharing a character from one of my very favorite steam punk novels.

Z is for Zenobia Fox
from The Kraken King(The Iron Seas #4) by Meljean Brooks

Zenobia is one of my very favorite characters because she's a writer who writes exciting stories based on the exciting adventures of her brother, the legendary Archimedes Fox, but longs for a real life adventure of her own. In The Kraken King, she gets exactly what she's longed for plus much more.

I like Zenobia because she is funny, strong, brave, and lands the handsome Kraken King without the benefit of a beautiful face and body. She's a-typical, which makes me lover her all the more.

Here is the official blurb about the book courtesy of Goodreads:


A former smuggler and thief, Ariq—better known as the Kraken King—doesn’t know what to make of the clever, mysterious woman he rescues from an airship besieged by marauders. Unsure if she’s a spy or a pawn in someone else’s game, Ariq isn’t about to let her out of his sight until he finds out…

After escaping her fourth kidnapping attempt in a year, Zenobia Fox has learned to vigilantly guard her identity. While her brother Archimedes is notorious for his exploits, Zenobia has had no adventures to call her own—besides the stories she writes.

But when she jumps at the chance to escape to the wilds of Australia and acquire research for her next story, Zenobia quickly discovers that the voyage will be far more adventurous than any fiction she could put to paper.

Have you read Zenobia's story? If not, I'd encourage you to start at the beginning of the series. It makes this book that much more satisfying when you finally get to Zenobia's story.
Did you complete the A to Z Challenge today? Congrats! Way to go! You rock!

A to Z Challenge: Y is for Yasmeen

The month of April is all about the A to Z Challenge in the bloggy world. This month bloggers near and far have been posting about a theme shaped after the letters of the English alphabet. If you'd like to know more about it for next year, go here.

My theme is Some of my Favorite Female Characters.

Y is for Yasmeen
from Heart of Steel(The Iron Seas #2) by Meljean Brooks

I love strong, kick ass female characters as you might have noticed if you've been following my A to Z posts this month. Yasmeen is the audacious mercenary captain of an airship. I like that she doesn't take crap from anyone and her brash confidence. Despite her ability to be utterly ruthless, she still feels guilty for her part in the seeming death of the irritating, yet charming Archimedes Fox.

I loved getting to know Yasmeen and can't wait to read more in this world.

Here is the official blurb about the book courtesy of Amazon:


As the mercenary captain of the Lady Corsair, Yasmeen has learned to keep her heart as cold as steel, her only loyalty bound to her ship and her crew. So when a man who once tried to seize her airship returns from the dead, Yasmeen will be damned if she gives him another opportunity to take control.

Treasure-hunter Archimedes Fox isn't interested in the Lady Corsair -- he wants her coldhearted captain and the valuable da Vinci sketch she stole from him. To reclaim it, Archimedes is determined to seduce the stubborn woman who once tossed him to a ravenous pack of zombies, but she's no easy conquest.

When da Vinci's sketch attracts a dangerous amount of attention, Yasmeen and Archimedes journey to Horde-occupied Morocco -- and straight into their enemy's hands. But as they fight to save themselves and a city on the brink of rebellion, the greatest peril Yasmeen faces is from the man who seeks to melt her icy heart

A to Z Challenge: W is for Winter Ihernglass

The month of April is all about the A to Z Challenge in the bloggy world. This month bloggers near and far have been posting about a theme shaped after the letters of the English alphabet. If you'd like to know more about it for next year, go here.

My theme is Some of my Favorite Female Characters.

W is for Winter Ihernglass
from The Thousand Names(Shadow Campaigns Book 1)
by Django Wexler

I love strong, smart, kick ass female characters as you might have noticed if you've been following my A to Z posts this month. Winter is no exception. Though she has tried to remain on the periphery and unnoticed, she finds herself in the spotlight. Rather than cut and run, she rises to the challenge and shows herself to be a quick thinker and a compassionate leader. She risks her own safety to help others and proves that women can succeed in a military setting right along side men.

Here is the official blurb about the book courtesy of Amazon:


Captain Marcus d’Ivoire, commander of one of the Vordanai empire’s colonial garrisons, was serving out his days in a sleepy, remote outpost—until a rebellion left him in charge of a demoralized force clinging to a small fortress at the edge of the desert.

To flee from her past, Winter Ihernglass masqueraded as a man and enlisted as a ranker in the Vordanai Colonials, hoping only to avoid notice. But when chance sees her promoted to command, she must lead her men into battle against impossible odds.

Their fate depends on Colonel Janus bet Vhalnich. Under his command, Marcus and Winter feel the tide turning and their allegiance being tested. For Janus’s ambitions extend beyond the battlefield and into the realm of the supernatural—a realm with the power to reshape the known world and change the lives of everyone in its path.
