So guys, I know it's been a long time since any update. I've been really busy and life has been crazy for me. The past year has finally seen some upward swings for me and my life.
The biggest upward swing has come from writing. I started telling one of my stories, inspired by my Anna who had started writing one of hers.
Long story short, a few months later, I'd finished a book and most of a second one, and now I'm officially published.
My Book!: amzn.to/1TWShhe
My book is first in an Urban Fantasy series that I have at least 8 books planned for so far. It features a snarky, geeky lesbian, and a supernatural world I've been working on with Anna for literally more than a decade. I hope some of you might give it a chance, or share it around. We're in the early days of publication, and right now, every sale and borrow on Amazon helps boost our ratings which helps us achieve higher visibility. So if you could spare the price of a cup of coffee and wouldn't mind helping me achieve my dreams, I'd really appreciate if you would pick up a copy and give my book a chance.
Also, I made the cover art myself which I'll share in a minute. It's Photomanipulation with some painting over it. I don't have the wrist endurance to do full-out paintings anymore, but I like how this came out. For those of you who don't know already, I more or less had to abandon my paintings due to De Quervain's syndrome in my wrists, and so being able to do any kind of visual art again has made me really happy since I had to give it up for so long and thought I wouldn't get it back. I can't really do the kind of art I worked so hard to learn to do, but at least I can still use some of what I learned in my new art form.
I want to shout out a thanks to
for her wonderful modeling and stock photography used for my covers.
As for the book, here is the synopsis:
You Can’t Unsee The Truth.
Geeky lesbian Dakota Shepherd was just a bored night security guard, working at a museum in Knoxville, Tennessee until one fateful encounter changed it all.
A rogue wizard. A demonic ritual. A silver chalice.
Dakota Awakened, Hellfire blazing from her hands.
Dakota’s powers are a danger to herself and everyone around her, and she has to learn to control them quickly or risk losing her one chance to finally fulfill a lifelong dream.
While coming to terms with her new reality, she stumbles upon a secret that changed the course of her life.
Now she wants to know who is responsible for the holes in her memory, the blocks that hold back her powers, and all the years she spent alone.
Who put her back to sleep when she Awakened years before?
Thanks for giving me a chance, guys. It means everything to me.
