Dear Diary


Dear Diary,

I have been a very bad blogger by not adding any posts these last few weeks. In my own defence, I am currently working on the final installment of The Evolved Trilogy and I did just finish a giveaway not too long ago. Today I actually came up with an idea for “bonus material” that I think will be well received. Also, I have a special project in mind that I will be working on after book three is published to get the word out about my books. I know, I know….two secrets that will both be revealed in due time! Well, I have some beta readers that are waiting anxiously to see how it all ends, so I must change out of my work clothes and get busy with my edits. What’s that saying again? No rest for the wicked……muah ha ha (that’s my evil laugh just in time for Halloween). Great, another thing I have to work on, my children’s costumes. :)

Happy Friday!!!!

I just wanted to provide an update in regards to the third book of The Evolved Trilogy.

Choices – Complications of the Evolved is coming along nicely, I’m about half way done. As excited as I am that the trilogy is almost finished, I’m also saddened that Lacey’s journey as the saviour of the future will be coming to a close. But that’s okay because I have another series planned!


Change of Cover?

Somehow this post got deleted from my blog when I was uninstalling a plugin…anyway…here it is again:

First off, I would like to say I appreciate everyone who has taken the time to read my books and post a review. I really do value the feedback (both positive and negative). The Evolved Trilogy is nearing completion and the accomplishment has me thinking about full steam ahead marketing once it’s done. Writing a book is hard. Being self-published makes me want to work that much harder by producing high quality work. One thing that keeps repeating in the reviews (and even comments from my friends) is about the cover. I like my cover but I don’t love it. I am seriously contemplating changing it so that it will appeal to the those who enjoying reading the YA genre and hopefully increase book sales. I know that I am not a talented cover designer so I might have to take the plunge and hire someone to do it for me. Hopefully that will pay off in the end. In the interim, I will plug away diligently on book three. I think I will go work on it right now.:)  (originally published 28 Jun 2013)

Update: Yes, I did go work on book three. I ended up completely changing around a few chapters. So does that mean I am ahead of the game or further behind? I’m going to switch over laundry and keep plugging away.
