If I had to describe myself, it would be in a word that has many meanings with a complexity which falls off the tongue.
A word made up of many elements, is deceptive in appearance, and creates an illusion from the imagination.
My word would be Phantasmagoric. ~Summer Ross

I am a Knight!

I am- the Knight of the Fae forest, and in case you were wondering, my wings roar as I glide by on my mount- Huzzah! 

A New Adult Urban Fantasy, The Renaissance of Hetty Locklear is the first book in a new series. And it’s now out! The main character, Hetty, is a twenty-two-year-old, stumbling about in an effort to become a full-fledged adult. She struggles with self-esteem, weight, relationships, and making the transition between college and the real world.

Graduation from community college isn’t the magic elixir Hetty Locklear counts on for becoming an adult. Her parents, who work the Renaissance fair circuit, insist she spend part of the summer with them. Hetty doubts pretending to live in the Middle Ages will help her find her way.

 To make it worse, an entity haunts her at her dead-end job, warning her of a dangerous man she doesn’t know. The ghost leads her to a lover who has a lot of secrets. He pulls her farther into peril and into a strange, hidden world of genetic experimentation.

New Adult Urban Fantasy with a contemporary sci-fi twist. Mature content.

Available as an ebook at Amazon / Amazon UK / Smashwords / iTunes / Kobo

Free Falling

Good morning everyone! 

For the month of November I'm going to cut things back a little to make room for writing time. I won't be posting Friday submissions on my facebook tab until I'm done with NaNo and while I might have preplanned posts for this blog- I'll be a little scarce commenting due to time constrictions. Working two jobs and kids plus NaNo- that's a crunch.

I watched the new Tinkerbell movie 'Secret of the Wings' and found it to be shorter than I expected but a great family night movie. My 8 yr old cried because she related to Tinkerbell and didn't want to lose her sister so Jasmyne gave her hugs and told her she might get mad at her sometimes but Kayla wouldn't lose her sister. It was sweet really.

Things I learned this week:

1) It takes me nearly 3 hours to write 2000 words when I'm pantsing my way through.

2) Christmas Jar crafts are super easy and help teach kids patience (the glue takes time)

3) I'm not super mom...My limitations might spread a ways out there- but I do have them.

Nano word count: 2005 words

Have you seen the new Tinkerbell movie?
Learn anything new this week?
What's your NaNo word count?

Happy Friday everyone.

I heart comments~~ You all Rock my world!
