It’s 2019!

I have to say it has been a rollercoaster through 2018, but I survived it. One of the great things to come out of 2018 was the friends I made through this site, and through joining and participating in the Writing Bloc’s group and their short story collection titled Escape! An Anthology, with 19 other talented writers  (now available on Amazon for $5.99!) 

We’re the Whiteheads is still funding: I have 50 more days! I would appreciate it so much for my story to be followed and/or pre-ordered. Thank you for your continuing support. Let’s make this new year a wonderful one. Link: https://www.inkshares.com/books/we-re-the-whiteheads/

Happy Saturday, everyone!

I have a few updates: First, I want to give a shout out to those who pre-ordered my story. (Check out the awesome works from the Inkshares writers). I appreciate it so much. Thank you! Again please share, follow, and/or pre-order We’re the Whiteheads: https://www.inkshares.com/books/we-re-the-whiteheads.

Second, I plan to update another chapter for We’re the Whiteheads. I should have the chapter posted either today or in the next few days. I’ll also be sending the updated chapter to the story’s followers.

And lastly, I have a short story tilted I Wish it Happened, one of twenty stories featured in the Writing Bloc’s ESCAPE! An Anthology ready for pre-order on Amazon (link here: https://amzn.to/2Kx04Ew ) for $2.99 ebook until the January 1, 2019 release date. The price will then be $5.99. I am so excited, appreciative, and honored to be a part of such talented writers and their amazing stories. If you love to read a blend of genres from science ficion, fantasy, westerns, contemporary to many more, ESCAPE! An Anthology is a reading to enjoy.

Good luck with your funding campaign, Durena. I really want to see this book in production!


Happy October 1st, everyone!

Today begins the funding campaign for my biographical story We’re the Whiteheads. Please pre-order your copy at this site: www.inkshares.com/books/we-re-the-whiteheads. I’m going to make this campaign fun and give shout-outs to those who follow and/or pre-order  (plus your stories if you’re an Inkshares author!). Let’s get it started. Thanks in advance!

Because I am so appreciative of this site (and for celebration of my birthday yesterday), I am going to give shout outs to three authors and their work who reached out to me when I first started this site. Check out their awesome works!


Cari Dubiel: How to Remember 

2017: A woman tries to find out what happened to her during the year she lost her memory. 2016: A man tries to find out who killed his mother. They fell in love once, but she doesn’t remember it. (In production!) 

Becca Spence Dobias: Rock of Ages 

An LA transplant struggles over whether to return to rural Appalachia after her father’s death and an abusive relationship. A feisty rule breaker and her abuelita, and maybe a little bit of magic, help her understand the meaning of home. (In production!) 

Kendra Namednil: Borehole Bazaar: A Vow Unbroken  

Surviving abuse leaves no soul unscathed, and this is especially true of Ptielieren, an elite elvish bodyguard involuntarily integrated into an aversive-heavy culture.  Strength can exist absent a ringing victory and weakness does not signify defeat. (Available!) 


Thanks again everyone and have a great weekend!
