Enter Now!

Mara is a Japanese-American girl with a history of personal tragedy. Though she still cuts to quell the pain, she thought she had left the worst behind her. But her boyfriend’s sudden death and a visit to one of the most haunted places in Washington State send her into a spiral of madness that lands her in a psychiatric ward.

Already suffering from dreams of a strange, ghost-infested house in the woods, Mara begins to question the very existence of reality. She is forced to confront the truth of her older sister’s brutal murder and, unable to distinguish between nightmare and waking any longer, the reason the ghosts have chosen her as their conduit.

#Firebird #Book 3 Naming #Contest!

I’m preparing to send The Firebird Trilogy Book 3 off to my publisher. Only problem? It still doesn’t have a title, and that’s where you come in.

If I choose your title, you will receive an acknowledgement in the book, signed paperback copies of Firebird and What’s Left of Me, and more!

The blurb isn’t finalized yet, and I don’t want to give too much away, so check out the first two books to get an idea of the themes and characters.

Don’t have the first two books yet? Grab them here:

The Highlights

It’s been a busy few weeks once again. Although my internship is winding down, my editing duties are ramping up (yay, money), and in a few weeks I’ll have even more time to write. Here are the most important goings-on of late:

1. On Halloween I married my long-time boyfriend. We had a nice little private ceremony in our own living room and later that night got all dressed up for the holiday. Our favorite bar gave us a free bottle of champagne, and everyone loved our costumes. I highly recommend getting married on Halloween.

2. I won second place in Fiction Vortex’s First Annual Horror Contest. It was the first time I’d ever entered a writing contest. Woot.

3. I received two big rejections in the past week but finished the first draft of a new novelette. It needs serious work. That said, I completed something. Go me.

4. I’m doing NaNoWriMo again this year. I’m behind in word count as usual, but I think I may actually pull off a win this year.
