Hall of Heroes is a wrap, but the Heritage Lost e-book sales is still live until Sept. 7. Also, be sure to pre-order your digital copy of Descent today.
I’m super excited to announce I will be attending Elkhart, Indiana’s, Hall of Heroes Comic Con, Sept. 4-5. Come visit me at the Far-Flung Press booth (AA7 in Artist Alley). I look forward to meeting readers old and new alike.
I’m approaching the midpoint in initial Descent edits, which is massively behind where I’d envisioned I would be in April. I’ve been under a lot of stress in my professional life as I looked to transition from one career to a new one.

For every step forward, no visible progress seems to occur, and now that I’mContinue reading “The Struggles Of Platforming As An Introvert”
After puttering out in the last couple of chapters, I overcame the rut and finally finished Descent, the follow-up to Heritage Lost. Well, finished the drafting part . . .

My drafts are always sparse, so revisions include more fleshing out, particularlyContinue reading “Writing Recap: Revision Madness”
After a productive April and May where I felt on top of the world and was knocking out words, I find myself stalling.

“A kid doesn’t belong on a military base.” “Hard to say that, ma’am. Especially after what we saw last night,” Aquila responded, tone grim. “We may not all be gems, but I like to think what happened to that girl wouldn’t have happened here.” “The Promise: A Heritage Verse Story” By S.M.
