Happy Holidays!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Years to you all! I hope you’re all having a wonderful holiday season. Between all the shopping, people-seeing, and madness that can creep up, I hope that you have a magical, serene time as well.

May peace be with you and all those you love! Happy Holidays!

NaNoWriMo Update

I totally spaced on providing an update on my NaNoWriMo adventures from last month! It’s probably because I got so engrossed in writing, that I forgot the month was over. Seriously.

I must have churned out at least 35,000 words for November. It may not be anything super impressive, but I’ve kept the same pace well into December. In fact, I think I’m onto a solid first draft for a new novel. Fingers crossed.

The funny thing is that I believe that this manuscript will make a nice third novel to a series I’ve been working on. We’ll see. I’m just going to try to keep hashing it out and get it down on paper. I’ll report back after then.

In the meantime, I hope you’re all having a great December!

My Book is on the Bestseller List!

My novel, Between Two Fires, has been on the Amazon bestseller list for medieval fiction for the last few weeks! Despite oscillating a bit in the rankings, it continues to keep rising. I’m definitely excited, but at the same time I’m also simply happy that people are enjoying my work.

This is also just the first book in my Queen Branwen Series via St. Martin’s Press. The sequel, Dark Winds Rising, is also benefiting from the increased interest in my first novel. I have several additional manuscripts in the works with my agent right now for another series, but it warms my heart to see my initial historical fiction books garnering some extra attention on Amazon.

Between Two Fires is now among the top 50 Amazon best sellers in medieval fiction, beside the likes of Bernard Cornwell, Elizabeth Chadwick, and Morgan Llywelyn, just to name a few. I definitely needed another cup of coffee today before I believed what I was seeing. Christmas definitely seems to have arrived early this year.
