Blain – Discarded Dragons Excerpt

I had a difficult time choosing this excerpt! Because this is an adventure book, you actually get to meet Blain a couple different ways depending on which path you take through the book and all of the ways you encounter Blain are fun, but here's one of the encounters. Hope you enjoy =) Publication Date: September… Continue reading Blain – Discarded Dragons Excerpt

It’s That Time!!

Discarded Dragons stacked books

I like to dream. But I'm somewhat terrible at planning the steps between dreaming and making something a reality. Knowing this, my husband and I regularly sit down together and he helps me plan out each writing year. When we started this year, I'd never gone to a convention before. I'd also never taken an… Continue reading It’s That Time!!

Attack – Discarded Dragons Excerpt

It's difficult to pick excerpts when the book isn't linear! Discarded Dragons has 12 different endings, so no matter what excerpt I pick, it won't totally give you a glimpse into the whole book.

Editing Screen - Discarded Dragons

I believe it was Stephen King who wrote about writing your first draft with the door shut. It's a time to let all the messy imagination in your brain splatter onto the page. But there comes a time when you have to open the door because you can't publish without the help of others. I've… Continue reading Never a Solo Project
