Late Update


I'm way late on giving my update, but here it is.

I've been working hard these past few weeks, going back through my older books in order to re-edit them, which is something that has become a huge task.
It's been more work than I thought it was going to be and it has set me back with everything else I've been currently working on.
I realized this past week that I missed a release date for Episode Five of Eden One, which will now be released this Friday, the 9th.
I feel terrible about being behind on this but I promise I will get this out and I will be placing Eden One, Episode One on Smashwords and Barnes&Noble hopefully today.
Now, while I've been between editing old books and getting new ones ready to be released I have fortunately been able to slip some writing in.
In the last three days I've gotten a total of 20,000 words written, which is awesome.
I'm making leaps and bounds this year so far.
There are many more changes to come and many more updates.
Also, I will be working hard to get all of my books put into paperback form as soon as I find a moment to breathe.
So, as for today and tomorrow look out for Eden One, Episode One on Smashwords and Barnes&Noble.
I'll post links on here tomorrow.

Thanks for Reading, and Happy Writing.

"Alone" Teaser

(Book One- The Among the Dead Trilogy)

(This part is told from Gale's point of view)

Searching through the titles of the books on the shelves in the living area that River had shown us earlier I jump back as Evan rushes into the room.
He throws his hands into the air. “I don’t know what I did but River just ran out of the kitchen and into her room. She’s back there now sobbing.”
“You must have triggered something, Evan.” I sigh.
“Or she could just be crazy.” Abby mutters as she walks into the room carrying a steaming bowl of food.
Evan turns to glare at her before grabbing the bowl from her hands. “That isn't even yours, Abby, that was hers and I can’t believe you would even think about eating it.”
“It’s not hers, Evan, I watched Gale give it to her.”Abby whines.
Evan snarls. “I’m sure he gave it to her for a good reason, Abby. Go eat your own food now before I decide to throw you out of here myself.”
“Just remember if I go, then so does Alice.” Abby warns with a smug grin as she moves past us.
Evan groans as he curses under his breath. “I really hate that girl.”
I nod in agreement.
“I should probably go see if I can’t talk to River.” I state absently. “Maybe I can fix whatever she’s going through.”
Evan nods handing the bowl of food over to me. “Tell her I’m sorry…for whatever it was I did, I didn't mean anything by any of my actions.”
I nod as I move away and down the hallway to the rooms. I knew my brother wouldn't have done anything to hurt her so there was no reason for her to be mad with him.
It had to have been something else.
He was the gentle one between the two of us.
At River’s door Alice turns to me. “I don’t know what’s wrong, Gale. She hasn't stopped crying since she ran in there and nothing I've said has helped.”
“Don’t worry about it, Alice. I’ll take care of her.” I state. “You should probably talk to Evan, River. He’s kind of beating himself up over this.”
She nods sadly before walking off.
With a deep breath I knock lightly on River’s door. “Can I come in?”
The only answer I get from the other side is the sound of crying.
Placing my hand on the handle I push myself to just open it and walk in.
River needed someone to talk, she needed me.
Thankfully the door is unlocked.
Opening the door slowly I walk in.
The room was dark but the little bit of light shining through the open door was just enough to allow me to see River curled into a ball covered in red satin blankets.
She looked so small laying there in such a large bed.
“River, are you alright?” I question softly as I sit down on the edge of her bed placing the bowl of food on the nightstand.
She moves to hide her face from me and I smile sadly.
“Did my brother do or say something wrong?” I inquire next.
Just as I thought she gives me no answer.
“I brought your food. I know you have to be hungry.” I change the subject.
As if on cue, her stomach growls loudly.
She curses softly as she pulls the blanket away from her face.
“It wasn't anything that Evan did.” She whispers as she wipes her face.
I motion for her to sit up and when she does I place a pillow in her lap and then place the bowl of warm food in front of her.
She smiles sadly as she takes the spoon from my outstretched hand.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year Everyone!

Let's start this new year out with a bang shall we, let's start this year off a step in the right direction and towards our dreams of becoming successful writers.

This year lets not allow the bad reviews get us down.
This year lets write until we finish our stories.
This year lets make our words count.

This year lets hit it big.

With the new year upon us the future is ours to take so why not take it and make it our own.

I'm thankful for everything I have now, and I am excited to see what this new year will bring in my long journey.

This is the year, this is our year.


Happy New Year
