Hiddy Ho Good Neighbors

Dana here with a quick post about my writing. Demon Protege is in her final stages of preparation for her release next month. Book cover is under construction and I'm busy filling in plot holes. Editing is occuring simultaneously to smooth out any rough patches. So unlike most road construction projects, Demon Protege is set … Continue reading Hiddy Ho Good Neighbors

Wait, what?

A line taken directly from my work planner, April 10th,  "Write TFI!! Fuck YouTube & FB". On April 10th I didn't open YouTube or Facebook until lunch. I scrolled, watched, commented, liked for an hour while I ate my sandwich and chips, then closed the tabs as soon as my lunch hour was over.  Without … Continue reading Wait, what?

Dropping the Ball.

Juggling all the superficial shit to avoid my manuscript because somewhere between Breaking Point and Aphrodite's Twin, I lost my drive to write, finish, and publish my work. I'd done it, in relatively rapid succession for seven years straight. I was chasing a high of success that remained out of my reach.  I grew disillusioned. … Continue reading Dropping the Ball.
