A Soul Reclaimed is now available!

At long last...

Despite the obstacles, setbacks, and delays, my debut book is finally available to purchase.

I don't know a writer who hasn't experienced at least some turbulence, but here is a brief biography of A Soul Reclaimed.

Three years ago I had a rather long and detailed dream and I wrote it down. Seems easy enough, but this wasn't my first novel. I knew I wasn't done.

Too shy and uncomfortable to look for beta readers, I found myself paying for what I thought was professional editing services. After about three months and a rather unhappy parting of ways, I got something of a line-edit for my first draft.

For those who don't know, the general process is Story Draft>Beta reading/developmental editing>Revisions>Developmental editing> Revisions>Editor/agent> You guessed it... more revisions>Editor/copy edit> Revisions

For whom the Bell Tolls - Game of Thrones Post

We're taking a break from the Blog Tour to discuss Game Of Thrones. I am a nerd, tis what nerds do. And please beware, this post is dark and full of spoilers. Everyone has their opinions on Daenerys. Either they say she snapped, that it was bad writing, that they had seen it coming, or that the show failed an otherwise amazing character.

We can compare the books to the show for missing context. We can look at the prophecy of the mad queen, but I have my own theory about what happened in last Sunday's fateful episode. Daenerys was the pride of her Khal. People shouted "Nissa" (mother) and rallied around her. People from all over the region gifted her. She was loved.
