My New Poetry Book

Posted on October 24, 2012 at 2:15 PM Comments comments (0)

I am currently working on my new poetry book. This will be my seventh book to-date. I came up with the concept for this book when I was working on my first poetry book Pieces of Me. Finally, I can bring this concept and book to life. I have enough material for this book but I may write some more poetry for it, especially for some sections that don't have enough poetry in them.

The concept for the book is si...

Title and cover change for my novel...

Posted on December 27, 2010 at 12:40 AM Comments comments (1)

Originally when I was writing my novel the title I had come up with was The Secret Life of Ashley Miles. Now that the novel is complete (not counting the editing to be done) I've decided that the novel needs a new title and the title that I have chosen is Awakening. Of course the title change meant a cover change for my book and I have created a new cover. I think it's really beautiful and I love it very much. I can't wait to finally show it to the world al...

Novel progress...

Posted on November 12, 2010 at 2:05 PM Comments comments (0)

I am making great progress with my novel. I am for the most part done writing it. Now comes the task of editing the whole thing, which will involve adding bits and pieces to what I've already written.

The book summary that will go on the back cover of my book and in the book description on online retail sites (like amazon and such) is done. I guess it takes finishing writing the novel before the book description is exactly a...

Writing a book description/summary for a novel is no easy task...

Posted on September 27, 2010 at 6:20 PM Comments comments (0)

It is much easier to write a book description for a book that is simply a collection of prose, or poetry, etc. Writing a book description for a novel is no easy task. You don't want to give away the whole story but you have to give a bit of the plot in the description and do it in such a way that it is interesting to the reader. You want the reader drawn in.

I've been trying to write a book description...

A Novel in the Works

Posted on March 31, 2010 at 4:25 PM Comments comments (2)

I have released a poetry book, 2 lyric books, a book of mixed writing (poetry, lyrics, prose), and a book that is a poetic tale. Now my next project is to write my first novel. I am very excited about this. I have not written a novel before and can't wait to see how it all comes together. I have already started writing it and am loving it so far. It will be quite an adventure and it will stem from personal experience, from things I have gone through / am going through.

Changes to my 5th Book Treasure

Posted on February 23, 2010 at 3:00 PM Comments comments (0)

When I started writing my fifth book Treasure (a rhymed poetic tale) I wanted it to span pages and pages. I kept on writing it and then I realized that the last few pages I had written created an ending to the story. Trying to continue on writing about the two characters, after the ending, would not work of course and trying to insert something into the middle of the story would not work either. But I didn't want this story to end. I wanted to keep on writing it, ...

Pondering Ideas, Spinning Tales, Putting Writing Aside

Posted on February 17, 2010 at 1:05 PM Comments comments (0)

As a writer I love bringing stories to life and seeing just where they take me. Sometimes I may write something and find that I cannot proceed further, so what I do is put that piece of writing aside and come back to it later. And coming back to it later does help as new ideas start to come to my head and things come together. It is ok to let a piece of writing sit for a while, unless there is a deadline by which the writing must be done. Then of course ther...

New Years Resolution

Posted on January 21, 2010 at 7:50 PM Comments comments (0)

My New Years Resolution this year is not a typical one. My goal is to write at least one poem a day so that by the end of the year I will have a total of 365 poems. I don't necessarily need to write one a day but if I don't write a poem a day than I will need plenty of catching up to do. It may not be easy to accomplish this goal but I hope I can actually reach it by year's end.

Diary of a Crush

I am currently working on a new book of verse Diary of a Crush. It will contain poetry, songs, and fantasies (written in prose form) about crushes, love, relationships, heartbreak, and anything else related to guys. Not all pieces will necessarily be of a completely personal nature but there will still be bits of me experiences in each one. You will sur...

I am now working on another book called Treasure, a tale written in rhymed that is full of love, adventure, and many surprises.  I am very excited about it and can't wait for the finished product so I can share it with the world in print.
