Edits, Edits, Everywhere

Hi everyone,

At the moment I swear I am swimming through a sea of edits. I’m currently on the second round of those for book 3 in the Hell Bound Chronicles and on round one for another story I’m working on. I’ll be announcing the release date for the Hell Bound Chronicles on my Facebook page tonight (Monday March 16th), so make sure to head over and check it, the already revealed cover, and blurb out.

Well, time to dive back into the pool and get back to work.

Edits, Edits.

Hi everyone,

At the moment I am busy working on edits for the third book in the Hell Bound Chronicles and so far my schedule regarding its release is still on track. The cover has been completed and once the dreaded blurb is done I will reveal it. With other stories on the go and some waiting in the wings, the next few months are going to be uber busy.

That’s all for now, so I’m heading back into the writing cave to get some more words down.

An Unexpected Change

Hi everyone,

Since my last post things have taken a detour. Hell Bound Chronicles three is well underway and the release date will be announced soon. However, another story I am working on, one that was due to be released under a shiny new pen name has decided to land in my lap. Why? Because my alter ego has decided to take another route and a new story connected to her is well underway. The one that is now going to come out under my name is almost completed. There is some further editing to be done, but so far I’m more than happy with it.

Covers for both are already under construction and as soon as I am ready to reveal them I will let you know here and on my social media platforms.

Well, that’s all for now, so back into the writing and editing cave I go.

Words and Worlds

Hi everyone,

At the moment I’m busy completing the first draft of the third book in the Hell Bound Chronicles. I already have a title and the cover is under construction, so I should be able to give you all a date for the reveal soon. I have to admit to enjoying hearing Gray complaining in my head again. That fallen holds a special place in my heart and I think he always will.

A new book brings with it challenges, curve balls, and an expansion of the world my characters inhabit. As they grow, so do I. Each chapter written is a learning curve for us all and the lessons learned with the completion of each are ones I intend building on.

Well, it’s time to head back into the writing cave and get more words down.

Until next time.

Raven.

Off and Running

Hi everyone,

First let me wish you all a belated Happy New Year. As soon as 2020 arrived I was off and running. Book three in the Hellbound Chronicles is underway and my alter ego is close to having her first book out. Combine all that with plans and decisions being made and you can see how busy I’ve been. And honestly I wouldn’t have it any other way.

I’m not usually one for setting what I call major goals, but for the first time I have. It’s only one, but I’m going to push hard to achieve it. What is it? It’s to be in a position by year’s end to be earning enough from my books to focus on my writing full time. I’ll make sure to keep you all updated on my progress during the year.

That’s it for now, so back into the writing cave I go.

Time To Reflect

Hi everyone,

Things have been a bit crazy in my world. Between working on getting my final release of the year ready and recovering from a knee injury, it has certainly been an eventful month. In the midst of all this I’ve managed to take time and look back over the year and to some extent the decade. Ten years of highs and lows, but all teaching me lessons that have helped bring me to where I am.

What does 2020 hold for me? In all honesty I’m not sure, but there is something I do know and that is I am going to grab the new year with both hands and own it. I already have my writing schedule in place and I’m busy setting other things in motion to help me achieve all my goals.

As this will be my last blog post of the year, my hope and wish for you all is that Christmas is all you want it to be and 2020 exceeds all your hopes and dreams.

Catch you all next year.

Learning to Listen

Hi everyone,

In the past couple of months I have grown as a writer. Now I know that each story I write, each book I publish, is another step on my journey as an author. But this stage in my growth is different. I’ve noticed the way I write has changed, I’m not obsessing over what words I use. That might sound a strange thing to say, but it is true. I became so caught up in making sure certain words were avoided that I ended up locking myself into a pattern, one which in a way held me back from being as expressive as I needed to be. That has changed because I’m listening to what my characters want, after all their stories are what I am writing.

Now I write in the way they want, using the words they want. Yes, I still watch out for certain ones, but I’m no longer locked into that dangerous pattern. I’ve grown, and I feel it and see it. I’ve learned to listen and it is wonderful.

Raven.
