The Emergence

Hidden in shadows, Desperate to be seen, Longing to be heard, Yearning to fill the void That fuels every Fear-soaked thought. So long admiring the spotlight. So long just begging to be loved. So long wishing I was the hero. When will it be my turn? The eyes start to notice. The mouths start to speak. The […]

On Self-Publishing

To those of you who have published a book before: How did you not shoot yourself in the final weeks before it released? To those of you who haven’t: Publishing a book is way more stressful than anyone gives authors credit for. I mean. For real. When I started this back in 07, I was one of […]

Conquering Fear

I’ve been swirling around in a cyclone of surrealism, overwhelmed and desperate to find a place to rest my longing hands. In five days, I’m going to be entering a town that, for the last six years, has lived in only my dreams. Immortality Awaits is, at the core, a fantasy in a world I created, […]

Cover Options

So my friend has been designing some covers, and I’m having a hard time deciding on some! It’s kind of crazy to be put in this position right now. When I started writing this book six years ago, the last thing I thought I would ever have to worry about was deciding on a cover […]

Working Cover and Synopsis

I’m close…I’m close…I’m oh so very very very close to finishing this (hopefully final) draft of my novel, Immortality Awaits. Here’s a little breakdown on the writing process, for those of you who have asked me (A.K.A., my bffs and my parents.) I started writing it in the end of July/beginning of August in 2007. […]


Much like what I was saying last week about loving your own work before anyone else does, another underestimated task of writing your novel is just that — writing it. We, as human beings, have a natural tendency to be our own worst critics. When you’re a writer (and I’ll assume any form of artistry would […]

The Condemning Dream

I’ve been having an issue coming up with something to write about because I’ve been editing my book, and apparently my brain likes to only focus on one writing topic at a time. I’ve excerpted a bit here and here, but I haven’t gotten too into actually posting anything from it because I’ve been too […]

My Journey Into Fangorn Forest

Sometimes, you need to envision an imaginary world in which you love to escape the reality of a world in which you hate. The weeping willows surrounded us as we ventured further into the forest’s depths, the world growing farther behind us with each passing step. The sounds of cars passing by grew distant as […]

Demonic Movies: Know When to Stop

Warning: This post may contain graphic nature not suitable for minors. Muahahaha I’ve always wanted to write something like that. Really, though, some of this content might be kind of freaky (based on the title, are you surprised? No?) When I was a kid, I used to enjoy horror movies. A lot. The thrill of […]

You Have No Right

  You have no right To be mad at me for being different, When the walls of segregation are Crumbling down from the past, The screams of souls long forgotten still Haunting America’s dreams as you try To put down those who you deem “Not worthy.” You have no right To come at me with […]
