April Wrap-Up & May Goals

You know that saying, about how the best way to get something done is to ask a busy person? Yeah, apparently I need to be that busy person. Did I get everything done that I set out to do this month? Nope. But I did a bunch of other cool things, like see my littleContinue reading “April Wrap-Up & May Goals”

January Wrap-Up & February Goals

I had a very good, low-key January that also included some major news and accomplishments. First of all, I’m excited to announce that Steel Empires #3: Steel Blood will be released July 2017 from Raw Dog Screaming Press, along with a full slate of other amazing books. Want to know what Victory has been up toContinue reading “January Wrap-Up & February Goals”

December Wrap-Up & January Goals

Happy 2017 to all! This year I’m looking forward to continuing work on the Steel Empires series, contributing to Speculative Chic, reading lots of amazing books, and attending fun conventions, and watching lots of great movies and television shows. This year’s motto is probably “Work hard, play hard.”

NaNoWriMo 2016 (sort of)

It’s that time of year again, kids! When the writers in your life disappear for hours upon end, consume copious quantities of caffeine (and sometimes alcohol), and come out the other end of 30 days with some semblance of a book completed. Though I’m not officially signed up for National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), whichContinue reading “NaNoWriMo 2016 (sort of)”

June Wrap-Up & July Goals

June has definitely been one of my rougher months in recent memory. The bad news is that I don’t feel like I got as far on a lot of my projects as I wish I could be. The good news is that I’m spending the long holiday weekend with my husband! Mississippi is hot andContinue reading “June Wrap-Up & July Goals”

May Wrap-Up & June Goals

I’m not going to lie: This month has been really busy and kind of rough. I’m satisfied with my progress on some things, and not as happy with others. Unfortunately, June is looking like more of the same. May Wrap-Up: The Steel Magic cover reveal happened, to great success! A great group of people cameContinue reading “May Wrap-Up & June Goals”

STEEL TIME Research Topics

The scene-by-scene outline of Steel Time is 95% complete! I just have to work out the final conflict sequence of events, which I won’t be able to do until after I complete some research. I know some authors do their research after coming up with the general idea for the book, but I’m the otherContinue reading “STEEL TIME Research Topics”

April Wrap-Up & May Goals

What a roller coaster of a month! April Wrap-Up: Vacation successful and new job started! I’m three weeks in and enjoying myself immensely. I’m doing a very different sort of editing, along with a bunch of other interesting projects. My small team is great, and I love the area of Baltimore that my new officeContinue reading “April Wrap-Up & May Goals”

March Wrap-Up & April Goals

Some highs and lows this month, for sure. See last Friday’s post about the major milestones in my life I’m currently in the middle of. March Wrap-Up: Complete the scene-by-scene outline for book 4, Steel Time. It turns out that the power in the ‘verse that can stop me is my own brain! I haveContinue reading “March Wrap-Up & April Goals”
