Isolated: Kindle Edition

I don't have a lot to say tonight, but I do have a little bit of exciting news!

Isolated is now available as an ebook...that's right, you can purchase Isolated for your Kindle. :D

This is my very first ebook, and I am very excited about it. Every new adventure I undertake as a self-published author is incredibly exhilarating, and this is no exception! When my books are selling, it is like celebrating the birthday of your own child. Now that I am doing something new, with Kindle, it is like I've given birth to a second child and I am overjoyed. :)

Here is a link to the Kindle edition on Amazon: Isolated Kindle Edition

Also, Isolated is soon going to be available as an ebook. It will be my very first ebook, so I am super excited about that as well! :)

Spring Break was amazing...and I was NOT ready to head back to school today! But having no choice in the matter, I went to school anyway. It actually wasn't too bad. I was expecting it to be harder to adjust back to my routine, but it really hasn't been bad.

I had a project due today, that I spent a fair portion of Spring Break stressing over and almost getting sick over. It was terrible. The project/presentation actually went fairly well this morning. When I told my mom about it, she told me I needed to work on 'taking every thought captive' when I want to stress over things so that I don't work myself 'into a tizzy.' I listened to her, but it was somewhat half-heartedly.

Then, I had my Scripture time later, and one of the verses I read was Psalm 37:8 "Do not fret, it leads only to evildoing." I felt this was my personal little reprimand from God for my fretting, as well as a reminder not to fret in general. On top of that, I also felt this was God affirming/confirming what my mother had said to me and Him reminding me that I need to listen to her more and trust her advice and wisdom. It isn't that I don't listen to my mom, but sometimes I tend to blow off her advice. I'm going to be working on that in future.

Thanks, God, for the reminder. :)

My New Best Friend: Fanfiction

We are in the final stages of editing to Isolated! Yay! I'm super excited. This book has been finished for so long....I feel like this is probably the longest I have had to wait from finishing a book to publishing it. I am not a very patient person, so this has been a serious struggle, people.

However, the wait is almost over! Isolated should be in available before the month of March is over. :D

That aside, I have gotten into something new recently. When I say has been a year...or two...but that is beside the point.

I discovered this wonderful and beautiful world called fanfiction. Now, I have always, for as long as I can remember, changed and/or added to stories. Every book that I read, every movie I watched, my imagination would go crazy with ways the story might have happened differently, the things that very well could have happened without actually changing the story presented...

I have now found a home for my wild imagination.


I LOVE it! Where has it been all my life? Why didn't I know about this before? All of the craziness inside of my head is now free to come out and be a story that can be read.

One of my favorite parts of fanfiction is the immediate feedback. People buy my books, which I am so happy about, but I never get feedback (except from family and that hardly counts). But with fanfiction, I have complete strangers commenting on my work all the time. It is wonderful. It is also very helpful. I get to know what my readers are thinking, what they like and what they don't like. It really is amazing.

Fanfiction, for me, has become a place to practice. I absolutely love taking known stories and putting my own spin on them. Now, however, it is also a place for me to hone my writing skills, get constructive criticism, and try new things. There are many aspects of writing that I am not good at, or that I have simply never tried, and fanfiction has become the perfect place to do that!

To put it simply, fanfiction is the new love of my life. :D
