Hello, there, internet travelers!

Today is such a special day, it makes me quite giddy inside. Firstly, it is my protagonist, Zenia Curser’s birthday!! *tosses confetti*
And if that wasn’t exciting enough……..

MARK OF THE CORRIPIAN is now available for purchase!!!

Keep in mind, this is not the official release of the book. It is currently only available through my publisher (and directly through me at book signings and other events). But now is the perfect time to get hyped up about it!! I also have t-shirts for sale ($10) to get the word out for the book. Currently the shirts are only available for those who live in my area, but if anyone really, really wants a shirt, I would be delighted to find a way to get it to him or her!

As far as the writing portion of my life goes, things have been very slow lately. Book 2 has been giving me quite a lot of trouble, and I haven’t made much progress in a while. But I’m remaining hopeful because this school semester is winding down, which means I will have plenty of time to devote to writing!! (For at least a week or so…)  I’m really working on planning this book out since I did absolutely NO planning on Book 1 (not a great idea, folks). And it turns out that planning can be quite stressful because, well, my characters have minds of their own and they don’t always like to go along with my plans! So then I must figure out new plans to go along with my fickle character’s crazy life decisions, and that is rather frustrating at times. Yet, it makes this whole process all the more entertaining for me.
Onto the (leisure) reading portion of my life (which has been rather dormant for a while): I have started re-reading the Chronicles of Narnia… There is something so beautiful about the way C.S. Lewis writes, and I know I can learn a lot from him. I love his simple yet descriptive imagery and the way his characters are so personable! (Quite unlike Xavier–he really needs friends…)
Anywho, I believe that is all I have today. My family is having friends over, so it’s time to clean the house! (Oh, goody) Be sure to check out my Facebook page and follow me on Twitter and Instagram for other information about the book! I will also be having a contest soon in which you can win a free promotional t-shirt and an autographed copy of Mark of the Corripian. Details will be on my Facebook page. Have a blessed day and keep reading!

Farewell to all,
