I’m very excited to say that Love in Flames is now available! Rayna and I worked very hard on the writing of this book. It took its toll on us mentally and emotionally but proved to be well worth it in the end. For me, this was very hard to write at times due to how connected I tend to be with my character. Rayna and I seem to have excelled at bringing the characters that we write into ourselves as if we are them as we pen their story. Bringing this story to life has been a challenge for me as a writer. It has taught me a lot and I know it will continue to teach me. For example, up until I began writing this series with Rayna, I had a horrible time writing things in first person point of view and now it comes to me much easier. Everything in life is a learning process just as everything in writing is for a writer. I’m quite thankful to Rayna for continuing to push me to better myself as a writer and it is because of her that I have more confidence writing in a point of view that I had always struggled with. I do intend on writing a more in-depth blog about this soon. For now, head over to the website for The Passion of the Dragon Saga to view the latest news, check out the teasers, read a review of the book by fellow author Lola Blake, and even find links to where you can purchase Love in Flames: The Story of Vlad the Impaler and the Women He Loved.
After a lot of thinking, I have decided to move my blog from tumblr to wordpress. I will be moving all of my main posts from tumblr to here very soon! I’ll also be completing my posting of the poems I wrote for NaPoWriMo. I enjoyed challenging myself to write with every single prompt that was given this year and completing them. I’m going to continue to challenge myself to do more things like this in the future as it benefits my writing and creative thoughts in so many ways.
Rayna Kingston and I launched a website for the book series we are writing together known as The Passion of the Dragon Saga today! Check it out! I’m currently writing on the third chapter of the second volume of the series to be titled Love in Flames: The Story of Vlad the Impaler and the Women He Loved. We have both enjoyed sharing Hearts on Fire: The Story of Vlad the Impaler and the Women He Loved with the world as the first volume of the series. The wonderful feedback and reviews we have received have made us absolutely giddy! This has been an incredible journey that we are just really getting started with. Hearts on Fire has been out for a little over two months now and we expect Love in Flames to release in early 2016. I’m very proud to say that I chased my dreams and do not regret for one second convincing my best friend to write this story. It is just too good to not share with the world. I know that we both cannot wait to see where else this takes us! If you happen to check out the website, you will for the first time see actual biographies for the three lead characters of Vlad, Erdenia, and Erzsébet.
Now for me it’s back to some music, which today is a Nightwish and Delain playlist in preparation for the concert on Wednesday that Rayna and I will be both be attending, and to write more on Love in Flames!
