Currently Listening To Irresistible by Fall Out Boy
The site that currently hosts my short stories, QuarterReads.com, is no longer active (*sad face*). In light of that, I’ll be looking for another place to post the stories. I’ll probably settle on Wattpad, but I’ll do my due diligence and see what other options are out there. In the meantime, I’ll also be posting the full short stories (rather than the shorter samples) here on my site.
If you use any sites to post short stories or other writing, or if you have favorite sites to go to read content on, let me know! What sites do you like? Dislike?

Merry Christmas, everyone!
If you’re anything like me, the holidays tend to be something of a mixed blessing. On the one hand, they provide a much-needed break and some fun celebration. On the other hand, they’re exhausting. I love my family, but for Christmas, I usually have around three days’ worth of near-constant family contact.
Basically, I need a break from my break. 😛 I need a nap and some alone time. Luckily, I’ve had a couple of chances to have some of that alone time. And I’ve been spending it writing like crazy, because my Christmas break is also the only tiny sliver of time I’ve managed to carve out as writing time. I’ve fallen behind my original timeline for having Stagestruck‘s first draft completed, but I’m okay with that; I’m making good progress on it, and that’s what matters right now.
In the meantime, remember that I’m running a giveaway of the new edition of Songstruck on Goodreads. Just click here and follow the instructions to enter!
That’s right! For this week only, you can grab a copy of Songstruck for only $0.99! Just click here and claim your copy before the countdown deal expires.
Isabel Poole is a wonderful storyteller. So wonderful, in fact, that her audiences tend to believe that the fairytales she tells are true. They aren’t, of course, because magic isn’t real.
That’s what Isabel tells herself, until the day she’s proven wrong.
On what should have been an entirely normal, entirely dull day, a strange melody fills the air and captures Isabel’s attention. Leaving her home behind, she follows the song into the forest and finds its source: fae twins, intent on spiriting her away. They need her—or rather, the spark of magic inside of her—to help them end a war that is tearing their world apart.
A wise person would refuse. A wise person would run home and forget about the fae and their war and their magic. A wise person never would have followed the music into the forest to begin with.
Isabel never claimed to be wise.
Ladies and gentlemen–the moment you’ve been waiting for! Or not. But I’ve been waiting for it! 😉 Allow me to introduce the new cover of Songstruck, created by the incredible people over at Deranged Doctor Design!
I’ve got to say, I adore this. It’s a gorgeous cover, and yes, that is a “1” there on the cover. Stagestruck, the second installment, is coming. I’m committed to it now. 😛 The new edition of Songstruck isn’t available for purchase quite yet; it will be available by December 16. I’m working on finalizing and uploading the new files for both the ebook and paperback editions.
