A New Website, A New Life

Hi friends!

I've had to clean house and make some changes around these parts, for practical and financial reasons. My previous blog, The Prolific Novelista, has now been retired. (Sad trombone music.) It just didn't make sense anymore to have two separate web presences—as well as pay for two separate websites. It was a lot of work to maintain them, but now I have it all consolidated into one place.

I still have a newsletter where you can sign up to get advance notice about book news, and be eligible to win special prizes (like Advanced Reader Copies or signed hardcovers!). But since I try only to send that a few times a year with the MOST important pieces of information possible, most of my updates will appear here.

A lot of things have changed in both my personal and professional life, so this feels a bit like sloughing off an old skin and breathing life into something new. I've left the town where I lived for the past few years with my spouse and dogs, and we're preparing for a new mobile life in our RV. It just made more sense, practically, to have the option to GO whenever we needed, instead of being tied down by owning or renting a house. And financially it will be a lot better for us.

I'm also treading new water with my fiction writing, and have branched out into writing fiction for the adult market for the first time. It's fun, exciting, and new, which are all things I've needed in my writing life. Young Adult as a category will always be special to me, but I'm also an explorer at heart and wanted to try on some different paths forward in my career.

I'd love to share more, but I don't want to jinx myself just yet. I'll have more news in 2019.

In the meantime, look out for my YA fantasy novel, Castle of Lies, in May of 2019. I'll be hosting some ARC giveaways between now and then, so please hit that subscribe button!
