Blizzard – New Price & More

This past month has been the longest year of my life. No joke. What the what January 2019?!

First, the exciting news -^_^-! Blizzard eBook is now for sale for $2.99, reduced from the $4.99! WOOO!

The disappointing part of my news: I’ve not written anything this month. Nothing. Hail is in suspension because this month has been tumultuous, to say the least. The good news? Things are getting better, and will continue to! I will MAKE TIME even if I have to bribe my children. It’s going to happen, I can’t help how things are. Anybody else ready for a vacation to a tropical island? I’m there, man! I’m there!

My reading…I’m trying to get better with making time to read because that’s how writers learn and grow as well, outside of writing. Plenty of reading. I have so many books to read…which shouldn’t make me as sad as it does right now :S. Honestly overwhelmed, big changes occurred in January (job role change at work, traveled outside the US for the first time, got food poisoning during it, ended up in urgent care-insanity), and big changes just this upcoming week. How do people function? I have kids, I have a job, I’m starting to lose my grip on sanity, and what I Really would love to do would be to write full-time. I want to write and complete Hail so I can begin my next set of books and plan to get those traditionally published. Jesus help me, I need all the help I can get!

Alright, that’s it for now. Was thinking of doing a special giveaway for a copy of both Snow & Blizzard, or just hosting a giveaway through Amazon for Blizzard…haven’t done that yet. Wish I had more time to be more active with my social media, but I will try to be more consistent with my blogs. I think I need to set some serious, hardcore goals for February regarding word count on Hail. Yeah? Maybe? We shall see…I hope everyone is doing well <3!

Delivered Books

Great news, all the GoodReads winners for the Blizzard paperback giveaway should have received their books! They should have arrived before Christmas, but I guess better late than never? I’m not particularly happy about the delay, but the readers received their prizes! Busy days, rough days. Only 7 days in, and this year has proven tumultuous already.

A Court of Frost & Starlight: Review

Sweet mercy I finally completed this book and can now move on to better things. I’m sorry to anyone who is a hardcore SJM fan, but this only got 1 star from me. Below is my review with link on GoodReads.

If you want to know what goes on in the daily, mundane, irritating life of the characters that leads to nothing being revealed (beyond what I found to be my growing loathing) then go for it. If you don’t, and wait for the next, you aren’t missing anything. Rather, you will be able to utilize the time that would be spent on reading this book by reading another, or anything else that would be even minutely useful/productive.
I Am interested in reading the next book, just for the sake that I gather it’s supposed to be a continuation of the major story elements, but this book could have been summed up in a few simple lines. I could Not Wait for this book to be over, but it took me a good amount of time to summon the energy to even bother finishing. There are sweet parts, those that pull at the heartstrings, but overall, useless.
Summation: Chapters=character point of views, we’ve all been swindled.

Winners & Deliveries

Quite disappointed with the shipment of the winners for my most recent giveaway. The books should have arrived prior to Christmas-they were processed through Amazon, got in notices that they would not arrive until early-to-mid January :(. Sorry to my winners!

Winners Selected, Books On the Way!

The GoodReads Giveaway has ended for Blizzard as of last night, at midnight :)! The paperback copies have been mailed out, those winners in the US should expect to receive their copies within 1 week, while those in Canada can take 6-12 days. Congratulations to the winners, I hope you all enjoy the book and would like to thank All who entered to win Blizzard <3! I’m ecstatic for the winners and their feedback!

 

Last Day…

Today is the last day to enter to win 1 of 6 paperback copies of Blizzard through the GoodReads Giveaway! You can enter Here! It’s always exciting when I get to mail off copies of my books to the winners, I always wonder if they enjoy it, if they have those same emotions I do when I receive a book <3_<3!

There are still so many on my TBR, many I have not yet added, that I will be reading in the coming months. Even more-so, I plan to get a nice chunk of writing done in the next few weeks. Yes, my date has continued to slip. However, that will stop here very soon :)!

When you falter…

Alright, some positive news! I have submitted my maps for the books to be revised by a most talented individual! You can find him on Instagram: @anduril38. I can’t even begin to tell you all how excited I am to have him revise and beautify my maps xD! He will be working on the final map, as well. First, however, I need to get in gear with writing :S. I wrote 600 words the other day, but I’ve been busy getting my physical health in order, and my thoughts together for this last book! Honestly frustrated I have done more for this book. As it turned out, all the allergic reactions to the surgery, which only cleared up in the last week, week and a half, entirely was a result of my weakened immune system and (mild) liver disease. Fun times, folks, fun times!

The Goodreads Giveaway to win 1 of 6 paperback copies of Blizzard is well underway, only 8 days remaining to enter! Don’t miss your chance, and share the news with your friends and family :D! Enter Here!

In other news, I don’t think I’ve ever been happier in my life. 🙂 Now, to get the ball rolling…
