A Website Facelift & Some News!

Greetings, humans! I’ve been busy this morning.

First, if you take a peek around my website, you’ll notice that it’s had a major facelift. I realized while proofreading yesterday’s post that with the dark background, my blog was really hard to read. As a result, I went through and revamped almost everything. Now you can read long posts without it leaving weird black lines in your field of vision when you switch to a different screen.  lol

Second, I’ve joined Patreon! Throughout history, artists have been supported by patrons of the arts. The de’ Medici family were patrons to Michelangelo. The Sforza family were patrons to da Vinci. Popes, kings, prominent members of society—they all believed in the importance of having art in the world. Now, if you’re so inclined, you can help support my art and get some neat benefits in the process. Below is a screenshot of the six different tiers available (ranging from $2-$100/month) and the benefits you get along with each tier.

 

Today’s plan is to bust out my PR work for the day and then jump right back into working on the ending of Bad Wolf. I didn’t finish it as planned last night but I should be able to tonight. If I reach the finish line, you guys will be the first to know.

WIPs UPDATE

Word Count Goal: 3,000 words/day
Words Written Yesterday:  4,271 (Bad Wolf)

THANK YOU TO MY PATRONS!

There are six sponsorship tiers available
with various benefits to you!

New Years Resolutions & a WIP Update

Good afternoon! I’ve never been one for New Years resolutions but this year, I have a big goal at the end of the summer that I NEED to achieve for my own sanity (more details on that coming soon). To get there, I need to buckle down and make my writing goals happen. No more treating writing like a second part-time job. Time to get serious and bust my ass so I’m publishing more than one book per year.

Right now, I’m diligently working my way through Dance With the Devil (Hellfire Book Three) and Bad Wolf (Executioner Book One – Hellfire spin-off series). I started out with a 40,000 word goal on both and thought I was close to done about two months ago. I was wrong. Soooo very wrong. Both books are quickly closing in on 60,000 words each. The upside is longer books. The downside is it’s taking me forever to reach the finish line. But I’m almost there…

To help myself get there, I started dedicating a large chunk of writing time each day right around Christmas. I’ve been working doing the PR thing every day and then at night, I sit down with my tablet and crank out 3,000 words. It’s not always on the same project, but I always do at least 3,000 words total.

At the rate I’m going, I’m hoping to have both finished and edited by the end of February. Once they’re done, I will be diving right into the second Executioner book as I already have it fully plotted out. And somewhere in that schedule, I need to finish the Bad Wolf cover. lol I keep forgetting that the book doesn’t have a cover… I’ve been so focused on keeping my momentum on the book that getting the cover finished has taken a bit of a back seat. I promise, it’ll be along soon.

The list of goals I posted on Instagram:

And yes, I know there is a typo in the graphic. I read over the stupid thing like twenty times before I posted it to IG. The second it went live, I spotted the typo. lol

Goal number eight is why we’re here today. I’ve been fucking horrible about blogging here on my site for…….well, the last couple of years. lol BUT, I’m determined to change all of that. I have my task manager loaded with a daily to-do list and posting on the bloggy blog is part of that. So you are going to be hearing a lot more from me going forward. Sometimes it will be writing updates. Sometimes it’ll be about what I’ve been watching/reading/listening to. Sometimes, it’s just going to be some random bullshit. If you’ve been following my blog for years, you’re already familiar with my kind of content.

Today’s plan

  • Finish Bad Wolf (yes, I’m THAT close)
  • Bang out at least three chapters in Dance With the Devil

Before I sign off today, I’m curious about you guys. I have a LOT of followers here on the bloggy blog. Comment below and let me know who you are! Blogger? Author? Reader? If you are an author or blogger, drop me your websiite link so I can come check you out!

Okay, I’m off. These books aren’t going to write themselves. 😉

Guys, Bill Maher broke my heart last night…

I’m experiencing a weird mix of conflicting emotions today and for an almost entirely stupid reason. I’m not one of those people who gets offended by everything. In fact, those people generally annoy the fuck out of me. I firmly believe that a good portion of the globe’s population needs to grow a set and just ignore what others are saying.

Then my regular weekly programming was interrupted by one of my favorite people shitting all over comic book fans for something he doesn’t (and doesn’t care to) understand.

Bill Maher.

Dammit, Bill.

Guys! The Devil You Know is FREE for the next few days! Plus! The rest of the series is on sale AND an excerpt from Dance With the Devil!

SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO FIGHT FIRE WITH FIRE.

Following a drunken night together, the vampire Michael “Vegas” Tremayne takes off with no explanation, leaving Deziree Davanzati to wonder if they’d made a terrible mistake. Rather than obsess about it, Dez spends most of her time at Onyx, the rock club she owns and operates for the supernatural citizens of New York City. All are welcome-werewolves, witches, and anyone else willing to play nice while under her roof and pay their tab at the end of the night.

After two weeks of radio silence, Vegas returns with alarming news. For the first time in more than four centuries, there is reason to believe a pureblood demon is walking among them. They suspect someone from the the Council may be behind the creature’s return, but to what end?

With the Sentinel Stone missing, they’re down to the wire and don’t know who to trust. Will Dez and Vegas stop the demon in time? Or will Hell itself be unleashed upon the world?

Out of the frying pan, into the damn inferno!

Who is the white eye guy? How can Jake Winter save the city of Coldharbour from its curse? So many questions, yet still no answers. And then there is the whole complication with Dean…

Evil is rising…

Lilisian, the beast Supreme, is free. Worst luck! Jake Winter and his friends are desperate to stop her, but she hasn’t been seen since her last brief appearance. All over the city ritual sacrifices are taking place, praising her name, her followers waiting for her to fully rise to her true power.

The clock is ticking…

Jake has to kill Lilisian. There’s no two ways about it. If she is restored to her deadly glory, she’ll be a threat like no other beast he has faced yet. But life is always far from easy. Lilisian has a pet that she has just let off the leash…

When a dragon takes to the skies of Coldharbour, Jake will need to summon all his strength before everything he is trying to protect goes down in flames…

A dark urban fantasy tale with kick-ass action and slow-burn m/m romance.

Guys! Carmen Fox has a new series out! Check out Divide And Conquer!

Two women. One Prophecy. Zero places to hide.

How the hell does a physicist like Lea Daniels get dragged into a fight to save a magical kingdom? A lousy prophecy, that’s how. To survive, she must entrust her future to jaded warrior Nieve, whose kick-ass powers blatantly defy the laws of nature.

Nieve, for her part, isn’t exactly thrilled either about her new role as a mentor to a “chosen one” who can’t tell a sword from a hairbrush.

Together, the mismatched duo must protect Seattle, the world, and the realm beyond from the conquering ambitions of a cut-throat king. The good news is, they’re not alone. The bad news is that, as former foes assemble to take a stand beside them, it quickly becomes clear everyone has an agenda.
