Why I left Kindle for one book, and AngelWitch is done! Life After College!

School is over leaving me to focus on finding a full time job, and it also means I can focus on other projects. AngelWtich rough draft is also done, and since it was by hand I have to put all the changes in the word doc. I also pulled Tales from Behind the Counter from Kindle Unlimited and I left The Killer Contract Agency there since it might do better. I’m at a cross roads in my life since I’m out of school it gives me time to focus on the stuff I want to do. I’m also uploading gameplay videos to a separate Youtube channel then my author one. My plan is to write books full-time and make Youtube videos full-time too, but those take time.

 

Life after college is way different when you are used to going to school. You now have the option of just working and that is it. It’s also hard to get a job right out of the gate too. In the meantime I’m just applying places and hoping something comes up. The other thing going on is my boyfriend Chris and I are doing gameplay videos together. I play hidden object games, horror, and roleplaying ones. Even a few first-person shooters like Bioshock.

I have time to do more Youtube videos thanks to school being done, and time to read and review my favorite books. I also sent A Witchy Beginning to readers to see if it really does need to be new adult instead of young adult, and they said it doesn’t need to be changed. I won’t and when I get the feedback I will go over it again. It may actually be closer to publication then I thought. I’ll update my blog more, and let you know the progress of my books. I’ll also tell you the story behind AngelWitch too.

 

Until next time,

I have a Newsletter!

I probably should have written this sooner rather then later, but I’ve done it. I created a newsletter for me to keep people updated on my writing, when I release new books, and even sales for them going on when I write more. Being an indie author isn’t easy, and one of the things I need was to create a newsletter. I can even include extras just for subscribing. I’ve been working on the edits to Tales From Behind the Counter and about ready to finish AngelWitch. I want to throw in a few extra stories from Angeline’s time at Kyle’s. There are only 5 weeks left of school, and I’ve been writing articles for Odyssey online and doing school work too. I work on the weekends, and I hope to make writing my full time job. I’ll get there, and when I do it means more time to read and write!

Until next time,

School started way earlier then I thought, and it’s been nonstop article writing for Capital News Service. It’s pretty cool since it covers the Capitol and the Virginia General Assembly. It’s been amazing seeing the results too since this class means you actually get published too.

 

I’ve done a ton of stories, and here are the links for them so far:

It’s been a wild ride, and I hope to finish up the last two semesters at VCU strong. I will graduate in December, and finally receive my degree A Bachelors in Mass Communications for Print/Online Journalism.

 

It will be good to be done with VCU, and get my degree. I’m definitely going to love journalism. On the writing front I’ve been working on finishing #AngelWitch and Tales From Behind the Counter needs to have more of a narrative to it. It’s a wild ride with that book, and I hope to have more out soon.

 

I’m going to start blogging more once a week, and I can make it related to my novels. Like character sheets, excerpts, and I want to plan to have out more stories so I can get myself out there. At the end of the day I’ll have my writing even if school comes to an end my stories and novels will always be there. I also updated my website, and I can do more with it since I got the premium. I want to start a newsletter since I want to offer some free stories just for subscribing.

 

Do you subscribe to a newsletter? How often do you want them? What do you hope to see from it?

 

Until next time,

Up, Up, and Away….

The semester is going to be over December 8th, and I could not be more happy. It has been an interesting semester since I went to some U.S District Court cases, and even the Supreme Court too. It was interesting at times, and some were boring. I even went to a council meeting for the first time, and it wasn’t bad since there were people there opposed to the resolutions. I did an interview with Madelyn Smith head of the Gluten Intolerance Group of Richmond, and even did a few articles on Celiac Disease. Not bad. My last two are about the stresses of working retail, and the holidays are here which means more craziness in everything. Not much on the writing front since I didn’t concentrate on my National Novel Writing Month project. I finally have my own domain for my website. It’s awesome, and I hope to finish AngelWitch soon. I’ve had a lot of time to think about what I want, and I want to write full time and get out of retail. I want to write more of Fang and Fur of Love, and NightWatch Superntaural Store. They are going to be put up on the blog chapter by chapter. Hell, I’m even coming up with a newsletter, and sending out that too. Hopefully. The next semester should be interesting since I’ll be interning with Odyssey online, and taking Capital News Service one of my journalism capstone courses. It will be good to be finally done next Fall. I can’t wait.

 

Until next time,
