Well, I've been working hard on novel length WIP "Cursed Blood." As a matter of fact, I've been getting up at either 4 or 4:30 am to ensure time for writing just encase work wipes me out and I'm too tired to write after.

After finishing it up I plan on starting on Raven's story, the character in my short story that's out now with Leucrota Press in Abaculus III.

I've already got some ideas of the direction I want to take Raven. She's turning out to be quite a complicated character/creature and I'm loving it! I work on her character sketch when my muse takes a nap on "Cursed Blood." I enjoy fleshing my characters out with words and pictures.

Speaking of work, that's where I'm heading now:(

How cool! I'm doing some world building or should I say rebuilding? (long story).

I can't wait to read Raven's stories, as it is, the publisher has not answer my emails about the link for the ebook not working, I'm pretty sad about it, but I'll continue trying ;(

Good luck on the character profiling, isn't that illegal? lol

Sorry to hear your having trouble getting the ebook:(

With Raven, I have some world building to to also. I'm trying to give her world my own twist;)

I love her character though. After reading so many vampire stories, I wanted to add an Urban Fantasy that was a bit different.

Profiling is only illegal...if you get caught:) LOL

Good luck with both Cursed Blood. And after reading Raven's Transformation, I'm head over heels with joy about you working on the rest of her story. That puppy just has to et published because I'm dying to read it. :-)

Thanks so much Marcia:) I'm pretty excited about Raven's story too. Her story has been swimming around in my head now for over a year.

I'm so happy that my first story published was the beginning of hers.

It's so cool to get her out of my head and on paper:) I'll try to do her story justice.

I just wanted to let you know that I read RAVEN'S TRANSFORMATION and WOW! I can't wait for the novel!!

I was waiting to read the entire book to review it, but I think I'll ahead and just do yours, for the alternative might take forever. eBooks, just don't go well, with my eyes ;(

Do you know how great it makes me feel to have my to writer friends read and actually LIKE my story?

Thank you so much for your friendship and support.

Did you finish tweaking your story? I've read some of your writing and I can't wait to read more:) Girl, some of the stuff you come up with;)

Thank you again for the postive words.
