Writing Process Blog Hop

So I got tagged for this author blog hop by Donita K Paul and Serena Chase about authors’ writing processes. There are indeed many future authors who want to see the inside to how the books they love are created. In fact I’m one of those people. Whoever thought of this blog hop had a great idea and you may want to try tracing the links all the way back to the source. If you do that, good luck and may the force be with you, or something like that.

What am I working on at the moment? I am in the process of editing Tangle (Book 4 in The Quest for Truth) and loving it. We (My editor and I) had a lot of discussion over the additional characters I added or neglected, key plot points, and the big how does this setup the last and final book in the series. So I am editing, editing, writing, and editing this book. I’m also preparing a Kickstarter for HowlSage (Sages of Darkness), BlizzardSage, and CrimsonSage so I can finally get those books done.

How does my work differ from others of its genre? I think the spiritual element to my writing is the biggest difference, when you recognize the One who saved you, its hard not to include Him in all you do, including writing. I also think my ride by the seat of my pants on the writing adventure also makes me differ a bit. A lot of my author friends love that thing they call the OUTLINE, I (sigh) don’t so much like it. Of course having one for Tangle would have probably allowed me to write it quicker, have less edits, and make more sense. But then again it also feels like shackles to my sporadic in the moment creative bursts. Did any of that even make sense?

Why do I write what I do? God opened to many doors wide open for me not to. If I look back on my how I got published story and all the things I’ve done along the way, then it’s easy to see what He wanted me to do. None of this has been because of my talent trust me. It’s all been Him.

How does my writing process work? Ugh. Click back and look at Serena Chase’s collage of images, it’s pretty awesome. Okay, I’ll use a bunch of one word answers.

Summer Travel – Where’d You go?


Author Davis Bunn and I, look for an exclusive interview with him about a brand new project!

Hey Questers I hope you’ve been having a wonderful summer of fun and relaxation. My family spent a month in Illinois with our family and friends.

We also went to Atlanta for ICRS 2014 which is the premier conference for publishers, retailers, authors, artists, and anyone in the Christian Retail industry.


Director Robert Schwentke on the set of ‘Mineral’ which is Insurgent.



While there we also caught glimpses of two movies in production. A car chase scene as well as a scene with six guys zip lining from the tops of two skyscrapers while firing guns! WHOA! At ICRS I got the chance to interview author Davis Bunn about a brand new project as well as share about the mission of Compassion International.

When we returned we spent the 4th of July in my hometown and watched the spectacular fireworks display they do each year. We also got to watch a great parade with everything from clowns, politicians, and firetrucks, to horses, tractors, lawn mowers, and a dog pulling a cart.

We visited Chicago for a few days and swam in Lake Michigan as well as ate at our favorite restaurant Rainforest Cafe. All in all it was a fun summer. So now I’d like to hear about what you did this summer, please share in the comments below!
