Apparently I’m a social media hermit, because I had no idea that #boostmybio existed until today. Anyway, I’m jumping in and posting my own bio here. If you’re reading this, and new to my website, welcome! We have plenty of aliens, unicorns, and coffee around here. There’s also a fair bit of cosplay involved. But, … Continue reading Pitch Wars 2019 #BoostMyBio
You may think I’m exaggerating, but I can assure you, the teeth on this draft are sharp. I guess you can say I’ve been on a writing hiatus. With moving to London, getting my M.A., and planning wedding, things got a little complicated. Okay, a lot complicated. It’s been two years since I’ve completed the … Continue reading This Is What Writing My First Draft Feels Like:
Now that exclusivity rights are up with Writers Tribe Review, I’m excited to bring “Tea With A Demon” home to my little website 🙂 Tea With A Demon Published in Writers Tribe Review’s “Humor” Issue, Fall 2013 Mrs. Chinsey arrived for dinner at the Flitterbys’ home an hour late that evening. Her graying hair, normally … Continue reading Tea With A Demon
The other day I was scouring my local Barnes and Noble for a Voodoo ritual book (per usual?). Strangely, it isn’t as popular a religion as one might think. But just as I was about to cry out to Obatala for forsaking my current WIP, I came across a magical little tome called Dream Yoga: … Continue reading Book Review: Dream Yoga, By Andrew Holecek
So I swear this last bout of radio silence has been for a good reason: I’m working on the first draft of my next book 🙂 This one is decidedly New Adult and has a fantasy twist. Though it also, of course, involves alien planets, so I guess I should plaster on that sci-fi label … Continue reading New Year, New Book!
So one of the big reasons I started seriously writing again was because my brain was all messed up. (I say “messed up” because I didn’t actually have any psychological problems, but I was going through some bothersome life stuff.) Anyway, I’d written little books and stories since childhood, as many of you may already … Continue reading Writing Is My Personal Therapist
It’s been a little over two years since I started seriously writing fiction. Sure, I’ve dabbled in it since I was a kid. I even filled out one of those black and white composition notebooks with the story of a girl facing the harshness of the Plague when I was ten. (I was a strange … Continue reading Five Agently Things I’ve Learned So Far
So I’ve been bad. We all know it’s been far too long since I’ve posted. I guess you could say Los Angeles caught me up and spun me around. I kept jumping for jobs any place I could, forgetting what was most important all for that desperation to pay bills and afford pretty things. That … Continue reading Beginning Again
I’ve disappeared on here for much too long. The culprit is a new publishing internship which, as awesome as it is, has been taking up a lot of my writerly time. I’m currently proofreading essays in which authors describe their first manuscripts. Their stories about inspiration, the combined pain and ecstasy of writing, and character … Continue reading As If I’m Not Addicted Enough to Writing…
The perfect day to begin something completely new and probably quite crazy 🙂 After a sleepless night filled with rambling thoughts and much too much coffee, I’ve made my decision. It’s time to start the process of self-publishing my book. I know I’ve made abundantly clear in previous posts my preference for taking the traditional route … Continue reading The Last Day Of The Year Is….
