▪️ Hidden Truths ▪️
My life was easy, simple, fun.
Until I got wrapped up with the wrong people.
Nothing but a piece of property to pay for the sins of my father.
I’m to be married off to a handsome monster.
I see his truths every day, and it’s hard not to fall for the enemy.
He won’t let me escape, but I’m not sure I want to.
I wanted to marry for love, but it looks like love is a lie.

▪️Stolen Lies▪️
My life was brutal, horrific, ruthless.
Until a beautiful bride was dragged into my life.
I took her as my prize and made her mine.
Vengeance never tasted so sweet.
I see her truths every day, and it’s hard not to fall for a woman who makes me weak.
She can try to run, but I have no intention of ever letting her go.
I wanted to marry for hate, but it looks like hate is a lie.

It's NaNoWriMo Month!! | Top Ten NaNoWriMo Tips!!

NaNoWriMo November!!

Who is participating this year?? This year, I decided to be a NaNo Rebel. I want to write. I love drafting a new story but I'm also editing a book this month and I don't want to stress myself out over it. So my word count goal for the month is about 21,000. Plus editing my novella (which is set in my Beauty of the Dark world) that I'd like to release next year!! Eeek!! :D

I did decided that I would share some tips for NaNoWriMo month. I've done Camp NaNoWriMo six times and November NaNoWriMo three times. I won all the Camp NaNos and all the November NaNos I did. Once during Camp NaNo I went for 50k just like November NaNo and won, so I've actually written 50k on one month four times. So I feel like I'm qualified to at least give a few tips on how you can, too!! :)

  1. Plan things out - at least a little. I know some people prefer to pants a novel (fly by the seat of their pants) but I think if you even just do a braindump of ideas for you story and plot and characters, that can be really helpful. And maybe even organize it into a rough outline. I often outline but my outlines are always quite rough and more vague than specific. 
  2. Plan out your time. Look at your November calendar and see how many days you actually have to write. (Do you want to write on Thanksgiving or not?) Then see if you can estimate how much time you have during those days to write. Do you have an hour? Do you have two? Three? Pencil that in a calendar (or put in your phone, but I'm a paper and pen kind of girl.) Then figure out how many words you need per day, based on how many days you just calculated. However, do not beat yourself up if you don't stick to that. Even if you don't get 50k, you're closer than you were before. 
  3. Curate a book playlist of some kind. It can be something you listen to before you write, or while you write. Maybe the songs have words, maybe they don't. Maybe you have two playlists. One that has songs with words that you listen to before you write to get you in the right mood for the book. And one that has instrumental music so you don't get too distracted, but that also has the mood that matches your book, if that makes sense. 
  4. Find a writing buddy or accountability partner. It's easier to do this when you have someone to vent to about things when you need to. And to gush to about things when you're super excited. You can find someone in the NaNo Forums, on Facebook groups, on Twitter... Also, someone to do word sprints with is priceless. 
  5. Do word sprints!! All a word sprint means is that you pick an amount of time (say, 20 minutes) set a timer and ALL you do during that timer is WRITE. Don't go back and edit, just write. Just go and see how much you get. You can do this alone but you can also do this with a writing buddy. Agree on a time and you both write for that allotted amount of time, then come back and compare word counts. It's both accountability and friendly competition in one. 
  6. Keep a list of things that inspire you - specifically about your book. Song lyric or poem snippets, snap a picture of something and paste it in. You could make it like a scrapbook. 
  7. Find something that gets you motivated when things just are not going to plan. It could be that book playlist, your writing buddy, that list of things that inspire you about your book. Or maybe it's a writing podcast, or a writing vlog that gets you up off your butt (so to speak) because you see someone else writing and think "I should go write!!"
  8. Turn off your inner editor. I know, easier said than done. But the goal of NaNoWriMo is quantity not quality. I mean, you don't want to not even put any effort whatsoever into your book but don't worry about it being perfect. It'll just make things so much harder. Remember, you can always edit later. But you can't edit a blank page!!
  9. Have fun. This is meant to be fun!! November NaNoWriMo is supposed to be fun!! Have fun with your book, listen to the playlist and think about how awesome your story is! How much you love your characters! Talk and laugh with your writing buddy! Celebrate every time you hit a word count milestone (whether it be 100 or 10,000 words.) Have some treats! Have fun!!
  10. Don't be too hard on yourself. Hitting 50k on November is not the end all be all of your book. You can keep going, keep working on it. In fact, even if you hit 50k it's still possible you'll need to write more to finish your draft. BUT if you don't hit 50k, don't worry!! Don't beat yourself up. However many words you wrote, you will be closer than you were at the beginning of November!! You are AWESOME for even doing NaNoWriMo!! You've got this!!!!

Happy Halloween!! + Happy Book Birthday Beauty of the Dark BoxSet!!

Happy Halloween!! All Hallow's Eve!! Samhain!!

Halloween is my very favorite holiday and most likely my very favorite day of the year. Ever since I was a little girl and trick or treated as Minnie Mouse in the hospital. It was the first Halloween I was able to trick or treat, but I was in the hospital. So a bunch of parents and some nurses gathered up the kids on the pediatric ward and we went trick or treating around the hospital. From the stories I've heard, we did indeed get band aides and gauze pads. 😂 My dad ran out to a store to get me a costume. There was a little Halloween party. I don't remember it, really, because I was two, but I do have a very vague, wispy memory of that Halloween party.

I take Halloween off. I always take Halloween off. Well, since I've been working from home. I like to watch favorite Halloween movies, listen to spooky music (or maybe just listen to Thriller by Michael Jackson on repeat), I hang out in my costume most of the day. The I go to my Aunt Sue's with my mom and we hang out in our costumes and have dinner and hand out candy to the kids who come trick or treating, It's amazing, it's my favorite holiday, my favorite day. I love it, I love, I LOVE it!!

Which is a big part of the reason why, last year, I wanted to release the Beauty of the Dark boxset ON Halloween. I'd known I wanted to release a book on Halloween and that boxset seemed perfect. Vampires, witches, demons, spooky, magic, murder, mayhem, romance, New It was just absolute perfection. Today, Halloween 2019, is the Beauty of the Dark boxset's first book birthday!! Today is the LAST DAY to get it on SALE for $3.99!! Usually $7.99 you can get all three full length novels plus an exclusive bonus short story, for the price of ONE of the e-books. So be sure to get that today since it is the last day!! Get it HERE.

For anyone wondering, I have been a witch for Halloween in some shape or form since I was 12 years old. Clearly, I quite like witches. And I always make my cat, Sawyer, take a picture with me. He is my familiar, after all. ;)
