Frostbound by Sharon Ashwood

BACK BLURB~ As a snowstorm locks down the city, more than the roads get iced. Someone has beheaded the wrong girl, and vampire-on-the-run Talia Rostova thinks the hit was meant for her. Now she’s the prime suspect in her own botched murder- and the prisoner of her smoking-hot neighbor. Lore is a hellhound, bred to serve and […]


Well, it looks like Chapter Five is going to have a Part I and Part II. Today, I finished Part I! It was invigorating. Coming in at just under 3,000 words, I found the ending of this scene to be one of my all time favorites to write. I’d love to share a few nips, […]


In all the hubbub of starting yet another algebra class, I almost overlooked the fact that I’ve hit a HUGE mile marker on Messy Death. 20,799 words! OH YEAH! I anticipate an 80,000 word novel if not more. That means I’m 25% finished! Can you believe it? I can’t. To celebrate, here’s a few paragraphs depicting […]

Since then i’ve moved on from sparkly, fang-less vampire stories […]

Death and a Hangover

Chapter Five of Messy Death is over 1,000 words as of today! Woot, Woot. Also, I have a plot, subplot, high concept hook, theme and working title for Vira’s sequel. I’m not going to share any of them right now, but I will give you a glimpse into what I got accomplished today. Here’s the […]
