What’s On Deck? Palessa Goes Wattpad…Sorta

It’s been a time and while I have every reason to believe that 2017 will be just as good as 2016, if not BETTER, I must admit to a bit of doubt. It’s like taking one step forward and then two steps back sometimes. What can you do but keep moving?Anyway, I wanted to just update everyone on some new developments that I’m actively working.  Continue reading What’s On Deck? Palessa Goes Wattpad…Sorta

Back online after two months offline PLUS I penned some ugly first drafts!

Some people swear that they can’t live without their tablets/laptops/computers but when you’re forced to do just that, life has a funny way of going on anyway. My tablet died in June. And affording a new one was a bit of a challenge so I had to wait. 

Life, however, roped me in and dragged me down into a whirlpool but things managed to work out and I’m here. Still standing and, hopefully, a bit wiser. While all that was going on, I rediscovered the “old school” way of writing. That was how I used to do it and I have to say it felt like I was going back to my roots.

It. Felt. Great.

I was a lot less judgemental and the idea flowed so much better. I enjoyed writing these stories and the process in general. Of course, it’s a bit more work because I have to now transcribe what I’ve written but I’m good with it.

So, in my offline time, I wrote out Fortune’s Smile and Fashion House,
two standalone stories, plus I outlined a story for a new series I hope to release 2017/8. 

Plus, I’m planning to release something special for the Baxter Family Saga before I get Baxter 4 ready (😩 yes, yes, I know. There wasn’t supposed to be a Baxter 4 but Quinn made a liar out of me. More about that later)

So, as I play a monster game of Catch Up as well as some other pressing personal business, I will be trying to get my self-publishing ducks back in a row. 

I will keep you all posted.

Did Palessa Fall Off the Face of the Earth? and Other Questions You’re Not Asking :)

So, um…did you really?

Maybe…I like the idea of falling off the face of the earth for a bit. Anyway, I needed the break and it’s a nice new normal for me every once in a while. Writing is intense for me and when I get the chance to do it, the story pretty much owns me. So after I put out a draft of a couple of new stories, I took a break. In fact, Continue reading Did Palessa Fall Off the Face of the Earth? and Other Questions You’re Not Asking 🙂
