Release Date for Novel

Although I hit some rough patches earlier in the year with my sprained wrists, this year  has been going beautifully. I have my second novel in editing and have the release date. You Will Never Leave Me will be released on October 29, 2018.

You Will Never Leave Me is the Sequel to You Will Be Mine, and will focus on the struggles that Matt faces during his kidnapping and Alex’s own struggles in trying to rescue him. Already described as brutal, shocking, and nerve wrecking, the last one-third of the book is a game charger with shocking results. So stay tuned for the exciting second book of the Do You Disgust Me series. I will have it available for preorder starting September 13, 2018. The first ten to preorder will get something special. So mark the calendars with the dates September 13th and October 29th.

I have other important news as well. In March, I will be posting some short stories ranging from comedy to horror. I will be posting two twice a month and will be posting some on amazon as well.

I also have an awesome spooky horror book I have up my sleeve. There is no release date yet but I plan on releasing a very special haunted house horror escape novel that covers a time span of twenty-four hours. So I will release more information on that book as release dates get released.

So stay tuned, remember to follow and be prepared for an awesome year.

After releasing my book in October (here is my amazon page…check it out), I took a small break for the holidays. I wanted to spend some time with my family and celebrate in my small victory of publishing. Now, in mid January, its time to get back to work on the next installment of the Do I Disgust You saga. This is a challenging novel to write due to the theme of the book (I do not want to give it away for those who have yet to read or finish my first novel).

This next installment will be intense, violent, and very brutal but still a sense of hope and bravery that leads readers on a ride they cannot put down. My goal is to publish in August of 2018 but will not label the date until I get closer to it.

For anybody interested, please subscribe and check back here for news. if anybody wants to check out my first book, I have the summary here:

Matt Williams, an aspiring rock star, is in a profoundly steep downward spiral. He’s quickly losing control of his life to sex, drugs, and alcohol—and things are about to get much worse.

Matt wakes up naked one morning in a stranger’s bed. This wouldn’t be so unusual, except Matt has almost no memory of the man or the night before. Disappointed in Matt’s poor choices, his friends and bandmates wash their hands of him.

The mysterious one-night stand comes back to haunt Matt: he finds himself being stalked, and the threatening behavior keeps getting worse. With no friends to turn to, and with drugs and alcohol always beckoning, Matt begins to feel closer to death than he has any other time in his life.

Part thriller, part romance, You Will Be Mine is a dark story about addiction and obsession. As Matt wrestles with his internal demons, an external demon comes riding into his life and threatens to take everything. Can Matt reclaim his life from this insidious stalker? And even if Matt escapes this overzealous fan, can he survive his own poor choices?

-You Will Be Mine

 

 

Thoughts about writing my novel

What makes a productive writing session? That is the question to ask. Giveb the opportunity to sit down and finish editing my first novel and write my second novel, I had dreams of writing during the day. I thought it would be perfect and everything will go according to plan.

The first week, I was met with disappointment. Not only did I lack motivation but I found myself making every excuse not to right. Now, I did just end a very stressful job that had caused me a lot of emotional and physical exhaustion, and because of that found myself relaxing and sleeping a lot for my body can repair itself.

I since had found a groove of sorts. I realized that the time that everything is perfect in both myself and the environment to write is during the nights from eight at night to one in the morning. During that time, the words just fly off my fingertips and excitement rushes through my body as I picture the scenes play off in my mind like a movie.

However, it wasn’t until I started to play the Ouiji Board that everything just all came together. I don’t play often, but I find if I play once a week, i stay motivated to write every day and since playing, has already made huge improvement in both the quality and quantity of my workload. I think it is due to my own superstitions with the board that just sparks nervousness which is the emotion I need to be fully motivated.

To stay motivated, I take breaks to drink water, exercise, and to eat. I also make sure to watch something light before and after I start writing because it gives me a break from the horror that I am writing. It clears the head of any self-doubt as well.

So what makes a good productive writing session? I think anytime is good. Even if there’s struggling going on, its part of the process and overcoming struggles will lead to becoming a better author. As long there is time dedicated to writing and you use it to write, its a productive writing session. Its when you know when you need to stop or take a break and do so. Its when you realize tricks that you need to stay motivated and taking those steps to complete it.

Most importantly, never give up
