I’ve got news! I was watching YouTube videos on my phone when a email notification popped up. When I opened it it spoke about Kindle Scout which I did not know was a thing (if you don’t know don’t worry I’ll tell you in a minute) and it highlighted how you can sign up for …

How I incorporated Mythology into my book.

Just earlier today I posted this post on Banshees from the Irish mythology but I figured I could also share how I incorporated this into my story. In falling for Pink my main character Peggy McCarthy is a banshee which means that her scream heralds death. But the thing is that when I started planning …

The Irish mythology known as the Banshee

Okay let’s talk mythology.     On to draft 2 of my story Loving Pink and I once again had to revisit my research on Irish mythology to make sure I have all my facts right. To those of you who don’t know in my paranormal romance novel the main character, Peggy McCarthy, is a …

NaNoWriMo day 21/22 – another step forward

I actually published the first parts of my work in progress ‘Pink’ on WattPad tonight. Just a cover, description and the first four chapters. It was a pretty hard thing to do, because so far I’ve always kept my writing to myself. This is my fourth novel and yet it will be the first that …

NaNoWriMo day 11- soppy late nights and injuries

Here’s the gist, last night the power went out and I decided to read (Miss Peregrine’s Home for peculiar children) and when the power came back on it was already past midnight but I was so excited for the direction my novel was going in that I decided to write despite the early hour. I …

NaNoWriMo day 10- exciting new developments!

Without spoiling too much: Benjamin (love interest) was seriously injured in an accident during my inciting incident and had been pretty depressed because of it but after snapping at Peggy (main character) he realized that he was letting the …
