I'm planning out what I want to achieve for the next few months, and so here is a photo of my Kanban board. Two sections of the board are for my current novel in revisions, 'Murky Water'. The HTRYN Lessons are the class I use to evaluate and set up to revise my novel, and … Continue reading Planning on My Kanban Board
And the final purchase I made in this batch of 'publishing' purchases was an embossing tool with my logo. It is GORGEOUS. I ordered it from this listing on Etsy, and it's both well made and promptly delivered. The box: It's blurry, but it's this logo: The embosser itself is pretty good sized: Why is … Continue reading Shiny New Embosser!
Okay, ya'll, I'm really stoked about this. I commissioned a logo and an author stamp. The logo for, well, everything, and the author stamp is my face for the 'author' page in my book and signings. So, ready to see some shinies? First of all, here is my logo: One of my gaming friends did … Continue reading I Have a Logo and a Stamp!

I'm not 100% happy with the result. Now that I'm revising book two, I want to get it … Continue reading Officially On a Content Editor’s Schedule!
I loved the cover for book two SO much, and it was done by a different artist than book one, even though its the same studio. Here is a cut from it: So, for marketing materials I commissioned the same artist to do character portraits of the love interests. Can you guess who? It's Hakon! … Continue reading Character Artwork
I need a logo incorporating my initials for some marketing materials, and my friends have been helping out. The initial idea because I like hedgehogs (and act like a hedgehog): My rework: Which works out perfectly because I already draw a hedgehog like this on my business cards. The plan is to get the logo … Continue reading Logo Ideas
Take a look at my Kanban board! The first draft of Ocooch 02 is at 113,000 words! Book 01's first draft was only 76,000 words. It's going to be SO LONG! I can't wait to revise it!
As a reminder to those who aren't writers, during the Month of November, many authors and aspiring writers attempt the NaNoWriMo or National Novel Writing Month challenge to reach 50,000 words in 30 days.
