1/24/15 – Editing and Starbucks
Hi there 🙂 I’m spending the day editing Everafter, which has characters that give me more issues than writing as Remi Vaughn (sigh), and I decided to post for all the future writers out there about my editing process (and creative process in general).
1.I’m listening to a song or taking a walk and an idea hits me.
2.I plot it out because in my head I’m an amazing planner … side eyes.
3.Despite my plan, I write freely and let the story go where it goes.
4.I hate where the story went.
5. I change things and people and love it again.
6.And I hate it again.
7.I fix that thing I hated and read the book … then I realize that I’m from Baton Rouge, Louisiana and we all talk really funny therefore I write funny.
8.I fix my drawl and other things such as … every time I type “of ” in the place of over (I have no idea why i do that. Like, literally, I do it 76% of the time), or when I type to in the place of too or two, or use the word y’all in a serious sentence. Or the dreaded reaching in the place of handing that so many reviewers on Amazon made me aware of.
9.I hand it off to a professional proofreader and they make me shake my head at myself.
10.Here is when I either put the book out … or change it all.
If you’re interested in writing, here’s a tip Click the W (for Word) or the page thing for Pages and get started. The first thing I wrote sucked so much. So don’t worry about it sucking. Just get used to the idea of taking things out of your head and turning them into words, any words.
Anyways, I’m so excited to have someone other than my dog read Everafter, so let me get back to finding all of those “Of and Over” errors.
12/13/15- Hey, guys! I know it’s been forever, but I’ve been busy working and writing. Here’s the new cover for my upcoming book Everafter, The Immortals of Westchester Prep Book One. (of three)
After years of battling leukemia, seventeen-year-old Sydney Long has made peace with her impending death. She expected pain, she expected tearful goodbyes, but she never expected to be offered a chance to live forever.
Nothing comes without a price. She must find a way become human again before this dangerous world, with its irresistible boys, lures her in for all eternity.
Hey guys, I wanted to post today just to say thanks for coming to my site and to share a little bit about what I’m working on next.
In sum, you’ll see the following on the site and in e-stores soon.
* Hidden Short Stories- Lydia’s Portal, Gavin’s Portal, and Sophia’s Portal. We all have something we’d change if given the chance. Find out what would’ve happened if Lydia, Gavin, or Sophia would’ve jumped into that (SPOILER) in Lost. These stories will be free on this site. Gavin will be first.
*Writing tips – I get a lot of questions about my process and how I come up with story ideas, so I’ll start posting things about plotting, creating cool characters, and publishing. Of course that will also be free.
*NEW TRILOGY- I am actively working on Book 1 of my new trilogy more so than anything else. It is also YA paranormal fiction like Hidden but it will have a different feel and different creatures. I’ll give more info on the actual story later. For now, all I can say is that it involves blood. Lots of it. It will be available for purchase on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Smashwords by October 2015 or maybe before. It depends on if I have a Remi-like character that gives me trouble and prolongs my release date again. lol.
Thanks again – M.
And the winner is….

2/12/15 – Saturday!!!!
Hey guys, Book Four will be available on Amazon and Smashwords on Saturday. Barnes and Noble, Kobo, and all the other sites tend to delay posting for up to a few weeks, but you can still read the book Saturday on any device by going to Smashwords.com and purchasing the format that your e-reader needs.
Heeeeeeey. Guess what? News about Book Four
Can’t wait to Vday? Then send me an email about an early release copy. Only the first 20 emails will be considered. Please send me the name you have posted under on this site or the link to your previous review of one of the books. It can be from a 1 to a 5. But hopefully if you got 1 or 2ish vibes you stopped reading by now. lol.
Thanks so much for waiting 🙂

3/22/2014 – New Content in EXTRAs.
Hey, ppl, head over to the EXTRAs page. I posted musical inspiration for the books and a few characters … and even with what I’m working on now. 🙂 Back to writing Book Four. It’s going great so far. Remi’s causing some trouble today. Do you hate her as much as I do?
2/24/2014 – Nook issue resolved!
Finally, Shattered is working on Nook. If you are still having trouble, shoot me an email using the contact form, and we’ll figure something out. I had to log out and back into my account on my nook app, and then Shattered opened just fine this morning. Thanks to B&N for fixing it sooner than projected.
2/1/14- Thank you note. From meeeee.
Guys, I am so incredibly happy and so incredibly nervous about Shattered. I know it is impossible for everyone to like your books, but thank you to those who like them so far. And that makes the third book even more nerve wrecking than the first two. I hope you guys like it and enjoy hearing from Nate’s POV! Thanks again. Enjoy 🙂
Barnes and Noble, Apple, Kobo, Sony, etc, takes a week or two to process through Smashwords. I’ll keep you updated.
Disclaimer – Because my characters are growing and getting deeper into their roles, they encounter more adult situations. Be advised. This book contains some mild language, mature situations, violence, and strong, emotional themes.
