Please help me obtain this goal. Every little bit helps. If you can spare a dollar, share a dollar and share this link with your family and friends as well.
My latest book in the Ansheniu Series is Darkened Sunrise. I am currently joining as many book competitions as I can that I qualify for and I share the contest competition information with other writers so they can compete too.
Everywhere I go, my baby boy Ian will be going with me. He is my lucky charm and I look forward to blazing the trails with him, with your help. Peace and blessings to you all. <3 <3 <3

I know, I know, it’s about time. Family and friends you can stop planning my kidnapping until after you read this installment in the Ansheniu Series and find yourself waiting for the next book. That is jumping the gun however, enjoy Darkened Sunrise and all it’s glory. I enjoyed every ounce of labor I put into it and I look forward to enjoying my efforts with the third installment and screenplay just as much.
Now for a little bit about Darkened Sunrise:
Jade and her friends are all battle geared up and ready to go take on their first mission as the chosen four, reuniting the realms. Julius isn’t going to make it easy on them though. When he usurped Caroni from his brother with his evil wife Sasha, many beings from other dimensions found their way to Caroni and everywhere else its former inhabitants roamed. They help make up the new Caroni, the stripped down rough Caroni and Julius’ brother James, who was exiled to Cacara, is just waiting for the day when he can lead his people back to Caroni and take his rightful place as ruler. It’s a numbers game and as the battle for the inhabitants of the realms heat up between the brothers, will James and Julius allow the love they once shared for each other make a bridge to peace or are they so far gone they will now fight to the death? This question and more will be answered in the sequel to Ansheniu Rise in the Ansheniu Series entitled, Darkened Sunrise.
Happy Reading Lovelies!!!

I have recently learned about National November Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) and plan to participate this year. What is it you ask? Well it is basically a writing motivator because for the 30dys in November while working on a brand new novel, you have a daily word count of 1667wds to end up with 50k words by the last day of the month. Even though most of my novels are close to twice that in word count, I’m using it as a way of getting me to either work on the third novel in the Ansheniu Series or on one of my other writing projects. Once I do that, I am well on my way to getting two books published by early next year.
They say it takes 30 days to learn a new habit and hopefully by the end of this experience, I will be taking my craft even more seriously and am able to complete more of my projects, leaving more room in my brain for other things Enjoy the rest of your week all, and happy writing/reading.

Those of you with a manuscript that you’ve self published or one that you’ve almost complete, check out Harper Voyager too. Between Harlequin and Harper Voyager, a lot of doors have been opening for us authors lately that have been closed to these big houses without an agent. Take the time to check them out and see if anyone fits you. It doesn’t hurt to submit and see what happens.
The submission portal, www.harpervoyagersubmissions.com, is now open and will be until the 14th of October 2012. The manuscripts will then be read and those most suited to the global Harper Voyager list will be selected jointly by editors in the USA, UK and Australia. Accepted submissions will benefit from the full publishing process: accepted manuscripts will be edited; and the finished titles will receive online marketing and sales support in World English markets.
Voyager is seeking an array of adult and young adult speculative fiction for digital publication, but particularly novels written in the epic fantasy, science fiction, urban fantasy, horror, dystopia and supernatural genres.
