H is for Help#atozchallenge

So, I promised the AtoZ would touch on as many things about my life, mostly writing, as possible, and one of the big things in my life is the amount of help I put in, in the (Indie) writing community. I thought I’d list a couple of the places I’m involved in, to share some […]

G is for Goals #atozchallenge

Goals.Ah, I just swore I think. There was definitely a disturbance in the force… Today I’m going to talk about my goals, and goalsetting. Which goes completely against the grain.You see, I’m a pantser. I do things at the closest to a deadline I can (which is a terrible habit, I know), or I just […]

F is for (in)fertility #atozchallenge

Sunrise, Dominican Republic by D Kai Wilson-Viola

I’m going to add a rare trigger warning to this post, as it talks about miscarraige, mental health, loss, and infertility. With that, I also want to explain why I chose this subject instead of talking about another character or book. Firstly, it’s a reality for us right now… People that are closer to me […]

E is for Elliot Peters #AtoZchallenge

(originally published for the A-zChallenge in 2015) The single most important person to me in the Darkness Deadlies is Elliot.  He is in fact, probably the most important character to me full stop, and he’s been around now for 16 years.  And instead of telling you about him now, I thought I’d first tell you […]

D is for Darkness/Dystopia #atozchallenge

I can’t talk about my brand without talking about Darkness, which is the main city from my main series of books (starting with Glass Block, which will be back online soon). But I also wanted to talk about dystopia, which is why I’m doing another long post. And one ties to the other, promise 😉 […]

C is for C-PTSD causes changes #atozchallenge #mentalhealth

While I’ve planned to mostly talk about my books, one of the things I do have to acknowledge, and is intimately tied to everything I write, is that I have mental health concerns. The first thing I have to say is I understand that caring for people is complex and that it’s easy to fall […]

B is for Black Monday Cataclysm #atozchallenge

Black Monday Cataclysm is the second oldest Universe I write in, and it’s one I think of fondly, even though I’ve never gotten around to publishing it yet. What I do have is nearly ready though, and that’s the first book of the first series, and the first book of the spin off. The first […]

A is for Apocalypse #atozchallenge

Funnily enough, for the A to Z challenge, and starting with A, given what I write, I’ve decided to start with A for Apocalypse, because most of my stories are based around or after (and during) the Apocalypse. Or various Apocalypses of all kinds. From the end of the world because of nuclear holocaust, to […]
