Okay yeah, this is really late, but I'd just like to thank everyone who participated in the Kindle release for From the Ashes! Seriously, I can't thank you enough. You made it an amazing release day!

I'm still trying to get used to the fact that I'm actually published. Does it ever really sink in?

Anyway, as far as writing goes, I have definitely not done enough.

My soul feels deprived of writing.

Honestly, this blog post is the only writing I've done for fun in a few weeks. The rest has been for school, and yeah, okay maybe I am an author, but I'm not good at writing things people tell me to write about.

So this week, I'm going to try my best to wake up really early with my mom so that I have time to do some editing or writing. Lately, I've been feeling completely drained of energy, and I think it's due to a lack of writing. Book two needs lots of work, and I can actually say that people are waiting for me to finish it now.

And I miss Jaina, and I think she misses me. She's been left in suspense about what's going to happen.

LOTS of pressure on me.

So yeah, that's kinda the plan.

What are you guys doing this week?

You can do it! Take a deep breath, find some inspiration (maybe a picture of Dragon) and write! If you need some time, take it. :) Don't overwork yourself!

Congratulations on being published. Yes, just dive back in and start the next project.

What have I been doing? I started a new blog yesterday, called Victorian Scribbles, since my MG mystery series is set in the Victorian Era. When you have time, check it out:

What You Can Gain. The fact is, most grains are quite high
in glycemic index, meaning that they make your blood sugar
go up rapidly, and send you crashing down soon
thereafter. Always check your physician before making
any changes to your daily habits.
