Writer Writing~ Heading into 2019 like a champ

Dark Awakening ~ Cascade Saga


     As the question 'Where did 2018 go?' has no answer in my world, and the holidays are taking a break... Valentine's day not included, even if heart shaped boxes of chocolates are freaking everywhere, we are now heading into the third week of January- 'Where is 2019 going?' wow!
     Did you get to witness the blood moon? Thankfully, after an entire day of cloudy skies, it cleared up making the blood moon visible. Incredible.

     Soo...what adventures are waiting for you this year?

     I'm starting with scuba lessons.... yes, you read that correctly. Because why should I sit on the beach, enjoying the sunshine, cocktail in hand, and listening to the waves lap at the shore, when I could be underwater! Right!
     If I survive the underwater lessons and things that swim in the ocean, I've made plans to do some hiking (dry and on land). One of the trips will be to Lassen Volcanic National Park, Northern California (I know shocker) where I'll get to hike and take pictures. And I believe there's a winery near there... soo... you know where I'll end up. Next will be a visit to Mount Whitney, no major hiking just camping and photography, wine, and wine.
     Of course, Dark Awakening (book two in the Cascade Saga) is coming along and if all goes the way it's playing out in my fantasy land, it'll be ready for a Halloween release. If not, well, maybe Christmas, and by Christmas, I mean the winter solstice. Maybe.
     This post wouldn't be complete without something about writing, right.
     Straight from the message vault~ Where do your ideas come from?
This is a loaded question, cause I chase rabbit trails, and never come up with a complete answer. However, I'll give it a try. Answer- Everywhere. Everyone. Everything. Perfect.

Meanwhile, desert living has afforded great weather and out about I'll be until next time.   











Find me in these great exciting places ❤

  Jordyn Langston, a pureblood werewolf, risked living as a rogue and left her pack. Forced back to Trinity, her powers begin to morph, changing her future, exposing her past, and putting her life in danger.

A man surviving under the shadow of failure…
  To establish his strength and worth, Rutger Kanin, serves as the Director of Enforcers for the Cascade pack.When an evil invades the territory, leaving dead bodies in its wake, the pack begins to doubt his authority. 

Power, secrets, and evil…

Now for the movie of the day~ The Ritual

Soooo... After the tragic death of their friend, four college pals set out to hike through the Scandinavian wilderness. (Count me out) A wrong turn leads them into the mysterious forests of Norse legend, where an ancient evil exists and stalks them. (Love Norse legend, and evil is even better. Still, I'm not going unless there's wine). 
Enjoyed. Making this gem better is its on Netflix. That's PJs and wine time.
