Hello my lovely readers!
I figured it would be a good time for an update. I know I’m awful at keeping up on here, but I told you I’d only update when I had something other than “I’m working on it, more info to come.”
Well, I got Out of Light back from my lovely editor yesterday and have begun working on these changes. It seems I don’t really know how commas work.
My original spur of the moment goal was going to publish on my birthday. I decided against this, and am now aiming for October 5th.
That was my Gramma’s birthday. She was the catalyst that started my writing, and so it seems fitting that one of my books should share her birthday.
Like a mother with her children, I don’t pick favorites but I totally do so Out of Light is the best choice to share a birthday with.
Anyway, that’s the entire update. I’m gonna go delete some commas.
Chapter One – Nathalie
“Help me,” a ragged voice called.
Nathalie skidded to a halt, slipping on a patch of damp leaves. The beacons in her satchel shifted, sending out a soft clink of crystal against crystal as she caught herself on a low-hanging branch. “Hello?” she called, hoping for a repeat of the cry. If anyone answered, it was quickly lost in the din of water dripping from leaf to leaf, courtesy of the morning’s rain.

Hello lovely readers.
This update is not very interesting. I don’t have a huge word count change or massive story changes. Everything is little bitty details that I’m picking at. Currently, (like literally right now,) I’m listening to Word read Out of Light so I can catch missing words and weird sentences.
If you’re interested in my life not in writing/editing, then it’s mostly been a lot of working and sleeping. I like my job though it does leave me really tired at the end of the day. I’m playing around with D&D on the weekends.
Also reading The Magicians.
Anyway, good night! ❤
Hello lovely readers,
It’s January, can you believe it?! That means it’s almost the one year anniversary of Out of Darkness becoming available. (A month, give or take.)
My original goal was to have Out of Light published the same day. That didn’t work out quite like I wanted. I did get a job though! Which means that it’ll be a whole heck of a lot easier to take care of the monetary side of all of this. (Cover, editing, whatnot.)
I started another read through of Out of Light to tweak some things I wrote elsewhere. Seemed like a good plan.
I know I was going somewhere with this, but I got a phone call and lost my train of thought. Anyway, happy new year!
Hello, lovely readers.
I decided to post a bit of Chapter 1 of Out of Light. I don’t know why, just seemed like the thing to do. I will note, however, that you should remember that this is not a final draft. It still needs a pass by a real editor, another pass by me, and any beta reader I manage to sufficiently bribe. Everything contained in this excerpt is subject to change, polish, and/or deletion.
This is a significant amount of time after Out of Darkness ended, and that’s all I’ll say about that. Enjoy 🙂
