Trial by Fire Book Party!

 

Pics from my party! We’ve been in a little bit of a pickle here in Calgary with some flooding. Luckily for my friends and family, we are mostly unaffected. SO PARTY IT WAS! There was TONS of yummy food and CAKE with my book cover screened on the to icing. I got a JUMBO SIZED poster of my book cover and signed books for friends and family.

And of course my latest obsession, Apothic Red Wine. YUM.

I’m still eating cake. WHAT?? IT WILL GO TO WASTE IF I DON’T EAT IT. I’M DOING A SERVICE

My sister, Ann, did the theme in colors of fire – Red, Orange and Yellow. there were some GORGEOUS flowers and you’re all getting pic spammed. [IDK what she’ll do for book two, which is tentatively titled ‘Counter Hex’ – what color is a hex?]. She put on QUITE a show and graciously offered up her house. Jennifer, my other sister, assisted with planning food I think. Darren, my bro in law, stepped in to arrange a cake when our original cake place was flooded out due to the flood situation in southern Alberta.

It was a GREAT time! I admit, I get nervous around a lot of people, even when they’re all people I know! I was a little scared and slightly anxious before the party so I made a beeline for the wine as soon as I arrived. Once I got chatting, I relaxed. Signing books was a bit nerve-wracking and I made two or three spelling errors. ONE ON THE WORD ‘AUNTIE’ [for my fam – omg, I’m SUCH A DORK]

I was so touched and honored to have all my friends and family celebrate with me! the only thing that would have made it more perfect would have been the addition of those that have passed on. I know they were there in spirit.

Jade leads a structured life:

  • Routine job
  • Caffeine addiction
  • No serious relationships.

And now, she can spontaneously set things on fire with her mind.

Well… perhaps “normal” was never in the cards for her. As she questions her own sanity and spirals out of control, a man appears on her doorstep and tells her that, like him, she’s a witch.

Pulled in all directions, her unbridled magic draws dangerous attention and Jade wonders if she’s made the worst mistake of her life by joining a coven, or if she’ll even live long enough to regret it.

If you like it, remember to feed the author. I eat reviews on Goodreads and Amazon 😉

Writing is hard!

Is there anyone who whines more about writing being hard than people who write?

Nope.

I’m still gushing about how my book will be coming out and then my sister says “So, have you started working on the second one yet?”

I said “LOOK WRITING IS VERY HARD OKAY IT TAKES A LOT OF SITTING AROUND STARING AT THE INTERNET VERY HARD WORK AND THERE ARE PLOTS AND … STUFF.”

Short answer – okay, not really.

long answer – I’ve got my little journaling book started on book 2. I write on my laptop and I do most everything on a computer, tablet, iphone etc but I find for figuring stuff out I need the slower speed of a pen on paper.

and my chicken scratch handwriting. sometimes I can’t even tell what I wrote but I know the process helps!

My Book is Announced!

Trial By Fire - A Covencraft Novel

Holla! My book is announced! It’s called Trial By Fire [A Covencraft Novel] and will be coming out June 25, 2013 [e book and print on demand I think is what they call it]. I’m being published through Fable Press.

Obvs, I’m very excited.

WHAT’S IT ABOUT? I’m so glad you asked:

If you know me, you know I’ve been working on this book for forever. It’s gone through MANY iterations/drafts/lives/Alternate Universes and I’ve finally found where it settled. I’m very proud of it. It’s a fun, witchy read and I hope everyone enjoys reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.

I guess I better get to work on the next one!
