Notice

Today’s post isn’t likely to go up today. I haven’t slept well the past several nights, so I’m pretty brain-dead and I’ve been sleeping late and I just don’t have the brain power to write a post today. Ideally I’ll have it up later this week, but if my insomnia continues I might not be able to. (At the very least I’ll try to create a workaround if my insomnia does continue.) I’m sorry I won’t be able to post today, but I’m excited to share this post with you when I am able to get it ready.

Thank you for understanding.

Character Interview: Trey Rogers & Raegyn Lee

Raegyn is one of the two POV characters in Unstoppable, one of the books I’m working on with Allie. She’s quiet and she has stealth/invisibility powers. Trey is her love interest/boyfriend (obviously). He’s organized, great at planning, sweetly protective, and has telekinesis. Enjoy their interview!

Discovering Your World: How Regions and Landscape Affect Culture

Discovering Your World: How Regions and Landscape Affect Culture

You’re building a world, and hopefully at this point you have a map. What do you do with that map? Aside from using it as a reference point for where your characters are and where they go, of course. How can you use it to further develop your world? Well, chances are you’ve filled it in with landscapes (mountains, forests, deserts, craggy cliffs…), which is a great starting point. A town in the forest is going to act very differently and produce very different materials than a town in the desert. So, how do you tap into these landscapes to develop your cultures? Let’s find out. Continue reading “Discovering Your World: How Regions and Landscape Affect Culture”

How to Become an Online Influencer – Guest Post by Livy Lynn

How to Become an Online Influencer – Guest Post by Livy Lynn

Influence.

That’s a pretty massive word, isn’t it?

The simple fact that each human has the ability to influence one another is such an honor. A gift. A treasure that we’re all called to steward.

We don’t have to look very far to see the laws of influence at work. We see celebrities setting trends on talk shows and on glossy magazine covers. College professors are molding minds, politicians are changing laws, and Hollywood is changing the way our culture thinks about, well, pretty much everything.

But what about us? Bloggers. Writers. YouTubers. Texters. Talkers. Social-media posters. Do we carry as much influence as the big names? Do we get a say in what happens in our world, do we get to shift and design the landscape of this life for others, or are our voices lost in the shuffle?

If you have a voice, you have influence.

And if you have a cell phone, an internet connection, or a laptop, you have the unique opportunity to influence this generation and use your voice for good.

Finding Our Place on the World Stage

We’ve all heard the phrase, “Online Influencers”, right?

I’m sure you’ve seen your favorite YouTuber or popular Instagrammer post an advertisement for a brand or company they’ve partnered with. If you’re Continue reading “How to Become an Online Influencer – Guest Post by Livy Lynn”

Cover Reveal: Healer’s Bane by Hope Ann

Cover Reveal: Healer’s Bane by Hope Ann

Hope Ann is preparing for another release, and I get to help show off the gorgeous cover for it!

First off, have a blurb:

Kynet hadn’t planned to be in the forefront of the rebellion. That was her brother’s hobby—rallying the people. Plotting against the leaders. Running into dangers she’d have to negotiate him out of.

That was before the Poisoner tried to kill her with many profuse apologies.

That was before she survived, her hands glowing with a strange power she didn’t understand.

With her new ability to heal, Kynet is convinced the rebellion will only doom them all. Taking the people’s pain on herself is a better and all-around safer way. After all, what is the comfort of one worth, compared to the others who can be saved?

Or will it matter at all as her brother lays plans to end the decades of fighting once and for all?

I’m already super excited to read about Kynet! And if the sibling dynamics are as good as they were in Shadowkeeper… I’m definitely sold on this one.
