Snippet Sunday: Wonderland

Snippet Sunday: Wonderland

After reading Heartless by Marissa Meyer, both Allegra and I wanted to write a story set in Wonderland, so we decided to collaborate one one. (I’ve mentioned this story in a post here on Scribes & Archers – “My Experience With Collaboration” – and also a couple of posts on Our Mind Palace – “Drawing Portfolio” and “Co-Writing and Collaboration.”) The idea is that the main characters of Wonderland are dying, and eight people from the real world are brought in to take their places, but they have to go on a quest to find various relics representing the characters first. Here are the first two sections of the prologue, which introduce my POV character and Allegra’s (in that order). Enjoy. :)

My Second Newsletter

I got antsy to write a blog post and I realized I haven’t told you about my new newsletter (separate from the one you can sign up for in the sidebar).

You’ll have exclusive opportunities to share my books on social media, participate in blog tours, and get advance reader copies of my books for review. Sound cool? You can click this link to sign up.

Character Interview: Torin Outlander

Character Interview: Torin Outlander

Torin is one of three main characters in The Heart of the Baenor. He’s the least focused-on of those three, but he has a complex backstory and struggle of his own and it’s spotlighted about halfway through the book. He’s a ranger and a dwarf-friend laden with guilt over an accident that happened several years ago. Enjoy his interview. :)

6 of My Favorite Blogs

6 of My Favorite Blogs

I follow a lot of writing blogs. A lot. A few of them I end up following and then either forgetting about or just not liking, but there are quite a few that I follow rather religiously. I will snap up just about anything they write, because I’ve grown to trust them and trust the quality of their writing. And these are the blogs I’ll be sharing today. (My originally list was thirteen, but then I decided to narrow it down to just those that I follow closest.) They’re in no particular order. Continue reading “6 of My Favorite Blogs”

Snippet Sunday: Silence

Snippet Sunday: Silence

Since this is a short story, it’s tricky to pick out a piece that can work passably by itself, particularly when I’ve already posted two scenes of it in the past (here and here), so this is short and semi-boring. If you enjoy the snippets, though, you can get the full short story along with three others in my Short Story Collection Vol. 1. :) Continue reading “Snippet Sunday: Silence”
