Words and Whatnot

Hi there readers 🙂

Throwing a bit of an update your way. Since I’ve decided to write more things than just War of the Sisters, I tweaked the header/name of this site. Now it’s called Words and Whatnot, because I’m super creative with titles. The URL is staying the same because I haven’t changed my name.

Out of Darkness: 49 sales 😮 (I thought I had 52 the other day, but I’d accidentally counted some twice :o. Oops. )

Out of Light: 32k words into the rewrite. Man, I sure missed these characters, it’s nice to ‘see’ them again. I can already see a lot of nonsense I’m going  to cut next draft. I should cut them now, but I’m not quite ready to kill my darlings.

Other Projects: Well, I have three things on back burner that are all started and in various stages of outlines. (From 1k words to about 30k)  Plus another outline for a book in War of the Sisters’ world. But they’re all still cooking so that’s as good an update as y’all get!

Non-Writing: I’m rereading Way of Kings. I like Sanderson. I’m pretty sure I have like three other books I’m supposed to be reading, but I got distracted. (Not surprising.)

Okay, bye! ❤



Update to Link for Paperback

Hey everyone, slight update. I’ve now sold 31 (!!) copies! (That’s split between ebook and paperback.) Out of Darkness also now has a slightly different size and a slightly different cover. What does that mean for you? Well, now it has a different link as well.

What does it mean for me? Well, it has the cover design I wanted in the first place but couldn’t get to work until, of course, I published the previous version.

What does it mean for you? Well, if you’re sharing my link around you’ll have to change what you’re giving out. (And why wouldn’t you be sharing it :P) If you donated to my gofundme I will be sending you the physical copy (if I owe you one) in the next couple weeks. It will be the new version, not the one that I’d linked previously.

It’ll take a few days to completely show up under my author profile, so it’s only the direct link for now.

In Out of Light news, we’re nearing 10k on the rewrite. So far there’s been a lot of extra junk removed that is now covered in Out of Darkness, and a lot of fixes for a character that didn’t quite exist when Out of Light was first written. (But that’s spoilers, shh.)

I am not falling into the trap I did last time and saying “I am for X date” to be finished. But if I were I’d aim for next year around this time.

Until next time dear readers ❤


I Really Need to Think of Better Titles.

Of these posts I mean. I feel like I can only title so many things “Hello” or “Update” before it gets confusing.

But hello readers 🙂

Today it looks like Amazon put my paperback on sale so today would be a good day to buy a copy or three!  😛 Of course if ebooks are more your thing this is not on sale but it’s still there!

Work (more work?) has started on Out of Light (book 2) I’ve rewritten the first two chapters, (about 3k words) and possibly made a whole lot more work for myself because of an idea I had. But we’ll see how that goes.

Until next time!
