I'm writing!!!

It's been a while since I've written anything (well, except for FB and Twitter posts. lol)

August and September are the busiest times of the year for someone like me. Someone who works in a school district.
Outside of my writing life, I'm an IT tech.

Often do I look like this:




Haha.

 I work on computers, laptops, projectors, ipads, etc, etc (the list goes on forever) I do work during the summer, so Im not quite as lucky as the teachers. (But I also don't have the responsibility of taking care of a ton of kids every day)

Anyway, when all the teachers come back, all at once I go from having ZERO workorders, to have a million and two. approximately.




Really, I am responsible for all the tech equipment for 5 schools. FIVE!
Thats a lot of equipment.

So, during the last two months, I've been stressing like no tomorrow.

And when I get home, and manager to somehow find some time to write, I have no motvation to. My creativity has been dulled and damaged by the stress that impairs me. My muse has been captured by my insomnia, and replaced with thoughts of how to work better, harder, faster, and get all my work done.



WELL- I am VERY happy to annouce that Im finally all caught up at work!

The begginning of the school year rush has officially subsided for me.

I still have work - but the stress is gone. (mostly)





And, though you may not be able to tell, by everything I wrote before this sentence, I actually love my job. I love what I do. I love being able to help teachers- who really are shaping our future generations. I love fixing stuff. I love helping.

(not to mention- my daughter goes to one of my 5 schools, so I get to see her way more often than i've ever been able to before)

I love what I do.






And now that Im not stressing with 150 teachers to help every day, all at once, I once again am seeking out my muse.

I call to her, begging her to come back and help me write.
and my creativity? I pulling it forth from the ashes. (not like a zombie. more like a phoenix.) lol

On my best writing day, I wrote almost 10,000 words.
Today, I wrote 1500.

I'm all like...




So...not the best ever.

BUT the day isnt over. And Im just so very happy that Im making myself write again, and that things have finally calmed down enough that I can.



First chapter of Enthralling Retribution (Empyrean Chronicles 3) is now written.
Only about 30-40 more to go. But hey. I can do it.

I really want to have the first draft done by November 2nd, when Enticing Violence (Empyrean 2) comes out.

We'll see.

Anyways.
Im writing!!!!!!

ENCHANTED REVENGE
When seventeen year old Lily finds her parents brutally murdered, leaving her broken and alone, she is determined to bring justice to the fairies responsible.

Her quest leads her to infiltrate The Empyrean, the land of the Fae where terrifying creatures lurk in every shadow. But with a political rebellion mounting, bloody battles and foreign enemies stand in her way. Alec, a mysterious fairy keeping his own secrets, gradually becomes her guide and dear friend in the unfamiliar world, and restores her faith in love.


Disturbing secrets about her parent’s true identity are revealed, causing her to be more involved with the devastating fairy war than she can afford.  Her vengeful mission becomes compromised and her growing romance with Alec wavers.

She must conquer her fear of the unknown, ignore her grief, and overcome her growing list of enemies if she is to succeed in avenging her parents’ death. Or ever make it out alive.


Enchanted Revenge appeals to fans of Julie Kagawa and Jennifer L. Armentrout.


This is a full length novel, and is the first in the four-book Empyrean Chronicles. It is a YOUNG ADULT urban fantasy, and has some mild sensuality and language.

Teaser 8- Allllll man

Teaser 8

      He placed his hand on his chest in mock horror, then reached back and patted his shoulder. “Shhh, Daisy. She didn’t meant it.”

      I laughed. I couldn’t help it. “Daisy?” I questioned. “You’re so weird.” 

      I walked away and jumped back in bed trying desperately to forget how amazing his back felt under my hands but knowing full well that I would never forget it.

      “Don’t be jealous because I have pretty designs on me and you don’t.” 

      I scowled at him as he jumped into his own bed. “Jealous? Of a silly boy?” I taunted. 

      “I’ll have you know I’m all man.” And then he winked at me before wagging his eyebrows. 

       I rolled my eyes and hid my laugh well. “If you feel the urge to say that out loud, it probably means you aren’t.”

      “Well I could show you.” He sat up and sauntered over to my bed. Excitement thundered through me. My heart sped up, stuttering over itself. My hopes began to soar. “But maybe another time. I don’t want to sully your pretty eyes.”

Teaser 7 -the best, all the time

Teaser 7


      At one point, he was coming up to my right, so I put all my weight on my right foot, readying myself for impact, but at the last second he switched sides before I could react, and he pushed me from the left. With all my weight on my right side, I went down hard, landing on my right hip. 

      “Are you okay?” he asked, pretending to care, even though his mocking smile was laughing at me.

      “You did that on purpose, you jerk,” I accused. And to my complete shock, he started laughing. Like a for real, deep belly laugh.

      “Yeah I did. I wanted to see how fast you could react. You were doing great, so I thought I would switch it up.”

      I rolled my eyes at him and pulled myself up. He came and offered his hand, but I ignored it. 

      “For the record, you aren’t supposed to laugh at a girl when she falls down.” But his smile grew as I teased him. 

      “Well, maybe you shouldn’t be so…you.” Then he laughed at himself. 

      “That doesn’t even make sense.” I finally started laughing too. 
     
       “Who cares? I don’t have to make sense all the time. And I’m not the best at come-backs when there’s a silly girl distracting me.”

      “No kidding. You could've fooled me.”

      “Whatever. I can’t be the best at everything all the time.”

Teaser 6- this moment was everything

Teaser 6

      And then he placed his lips in the tiny spot of my neck that his breath was tickling. The sensations exploded behind my eyelids as my eyes rolled back into my head. 

      Heaven on earth. Paradise. I couldn’t help the whimper that escaped my lips. 

      I kissed him, no longer able to hold back. No longer wanting to.

      He kissed me with all the passion I could have hoped for. I breathed him into me, wanting to remember these sensations forever. He pulled me closer to him, our bodies intertwined. His hand was on my back, holding me firmly against him. His other hand held my face softly, as if I was something he treasured. 

      This moment…this moment was everything.

Teaser 4- Surrounded

Teaser 4
      
      We all waited for Lynn to signal us forward before we moved on, Alec always just behind us, bringing up the rear. 

     I turned back to look at him just as he tackled a guard to the ground. He placed his hand flat against his forehead and whispered something into the guard’s ear. I doubt he killed him, but I didn’t think he'd be waking up for a long while. 

      “I didn’t even hear him come after you,” I whispered as we went to the next building.

      He winked at me, “But I did.” Always so sure of himself. I rolled my eyes just as I saw the shadow of a man come at us from behind.  

      I turned just in time to duck down and narrowly avoid a blow to the head.

      I looked up to find Alec on top, punching him. But that guard wasn’t alone. Glancing at Lynn I watched as she fought two guards at once. My eyes traveled around our group.

      We were surrounded.

Teaser 3- Lily, not Alice

Teaser 3

      I grabbed hold of his hand and looked up at him, waiting for him to explain more to me. Like how the hell that tiny device would take us from Kansas to Texas. But once I touched his hand, I saw it. The Tripudio was spinning, and the tiny hole in the middle had grown much larger. So large that perhaps a person could fit through it.    

      Then I got scared. Did he expect me to jump into a hole in the ground?

      “What now? I’m not jumping down the rabbit hole. You can call me Lily, not Alice,” I told him. 

      He laughed, like an actual laugh. And it was so strange, because I never made people laugh. I felt like a lifetime has gone by without me making anyone else laugh, and yet this stranger thought I was funny. I couldn’t help but be thankful again for him and his methods of keeping my mind off my parents.

      “Don’t worry, it’s not Wonderland we're going to.” Then, without any warning, he pulled me toward him in an almost-embrace, and together we jumped.
