Last report wordcount + chapter count/scene count:

YA FANTASY FAIRY TALE RETELLING/PREQUEL: 36,153 words, 14 1/2 chapters

Current report WC + CC/ SC:


WIP Issues This Month: I got really busy with work and had a cold, so there were multiple days in which I didn’t work on the manuscript at all. I really wanted to get further than this, but I’m getting close to the end at least.

What I learned this month in writing: (I decided not to do “four” things because I’m learning a lot of the same things each month at this point!) Juggling everything is hard. (But we all already knew that.)

What distracted me this month while writing: My cold, a client manuscript edit, lots of work writing… My boyfriend’s been sick as well (both from my cold and other issues). I got to look over the NOBODY’S LADY proofs, and it should be off to the printer soon! Other stresses….

But also, the NOBODY’S LADY cover reveal! And the blog tour sign-ups/e-ARC info! Click here for more information!

Nobody's Lady

Goal for next month: I would love to finish this manuscript, but I said that last month. I really want to finish it, though!


Author of YA speculative fiction and cozy paranormal mysteries.

  1. Sorry, you’ve been sick! You did really well for being busy and under the weather! You’ll get that draft done soon! I know it. 🙂

    Juggling is an art form in and of itself. There are some people who like machines when it comes to this. I’m trying to study them and see if I can learn something. ^_^

    The cover to Nobody’s Lady is beautiful! So haunting.

    1. Thanks! Yeah, I hope so. ;-; I just realized I haven’t finished a ms since late 2014. 0-o I did try last year, but I devoted months to the one I wound up shelving before finishing…

      Oh, yes, I envy people good at juggling it all!

      Thank you! I love it, and I can’t wait to see what they come up with for the 3rd and final book! 0-0

  2. I hope you and your boyfriend get better! Thankfully, seems we in the Midwest are slowly getting past the worst of the cold weather.

    Love the hair of your heroine on your cover! Absolutely gorgeous!

    Crossing fingers for you to finish your draft in March!

    1. We did… And then I got sick last night, but I think it was just something I ate. ;-; And yes, it’s quite warm today! (Although it’s supposed to snow tomorrow.)

      Thank you! The designer did a great job!

      Thanks! 😀

  3. Wow, that cover is even more gorgeous than the last!! Congratulations!

    I hope you and your boyfriend are both feeling better! Seems to be that time of year. Boo!

    Best wishes for finishing the MS in March I said that last month too, but life is nothing if not unpredictable. Good luck!
