Original Iris Cover



When finishing “Iris” last year, I spent a couple days drawing this cover. I know I”m not the greatest artist, but this was a blast to create. In the end, though, it wasn’t meant to be. But I can still share this with my readers. I’m hoping to draw more art from some of my other┬ástories sometime in the future to represent the images in my head.


PS—This is from Chapter 28.

Reps and Royals Update

It’s almost here! Reps and Royals is coming out soon. I’m on the last round of revision–only a few more chapters to go through. The plan is to finish in the next 2-3 days. I’m then hoping to be able to go through twice–emphasis on hope–before I need to submit it.


This release, I’m doing something new. I had done some research on marketing for Kindle. One particular website recommended offering a book for pre-order. Well, that means that Kindle wants my book at least ten days before the release. I had said I wanted to finish Reps and Royals by the end of June. There was no way I was going to complete it by June 20th, so I went ahead and told Kindle that my release date will be July 10th.


I’m going to admit something here. I’m honestly a little worried about this release. This is the first story I’ve written without outside help on the earlier drafts. I’ve had some wonderful readers help me polish up Undoing Life and Iris. But I didn’t do that with Reps and Royals. It is 100% from my brain. I’m excited to see how it will work out, but also anxious that it doesn’t measure up or that it’s confusing. However, I’m going to swallow these worries and be confident that it’s amazing and that my readers will enjoy it.
