Hello, Autumn

33026622_10156427183904439_6032754507555799040_o

Yes… it’s March 21st, which means Autumn can officially start… in the Southern Hemisphere, that is. The previous twenty-one days were just a warm up… seeings as in Oz the weather can never make up its mind. I’m really over Summer, if you can’t tell.

This post is kind of two-fold today, as there’s been quite a lot going on in the niche I carved out for myself in the writing world, as small as it is now, I’m hopeful it’s going to grow into something huge. A girl can dream, right?

organic-inkTwo days ago, I received an acceptance for my poem, Petals, that I submitted two weeks prior and kept it completely under wraps. I truly believed I sucked at poetry, because I don’t really get how to write it. Like, I’ve always felt there’s a right way and a wrong way to write poetry and its instilled in me this immense fear of getting it wrong. So, I’ve totally just steered clear of it. Yeah, so I totally jumped out of my comfort zone for this submission and its surprisingly paid off. So, that of course lead to me submitting another poem, because I hate odd numbers… suffice to say, my second poem, Darkness, will also be appearing in the Dragon Soul Press anthology, Organic Ink, Volume One. Which will be published later this year. I can’t wait!

In other news, I’ve also submitted a drabble to another online only publication. This time it’s for Black Hare Press. I’m crossing my fingers (and toes) that I hear back soon.

Finally, I’ve also done a soft launch of my Patreon, which I’ve been debating for a long while whether to launch and I decided last night to just go ahead and do it… so, if there’s any interest at all, I’d be eternally grateful. There’s three tiers at the moment but I’m hoping to find news ways to give back to anyone who champions my cause, no matter how small, when time permits. If you would like to chip in, the link is HERE.

I truly hope that the Equinox finds you well. I really do love this time of year.

My short story collection, Lost is now available in eBook and paperback (soon) on Smashwords and multiple other platforms including Amazon.

The first story, Freya, is a 500 word flash fiction piece that tells the tale of the Norse Goddess Freya and her fabled necklace, Brisingamen.

To kick off the release of this collection, here’s an excerpt:

“Freya,” she heard a voice whisper. “Freya!”

She bolted awake; surprised that it was still dark outside her bedroom window. She hadn’t been dreaming that much she knew because fey didn’t possess the ability with which to dream. That was the stuff of human conscience and beings with souls; Freya had neither.

“Who’s there?” she asked into the darkness, afraid that if she turned on the lamp she might scare off whomever it was that was around.

“I am,” the figure said. She squinted her eyes against the darkness, but to no avail, she still couldn’t see anyone.

“What do you want?” she asked.
