COURAGE is FREE – Today ONLY!

In honor of my son’s birthday, I’ve decided to give COURAGE away today. I think it’s the perfect occasion for it. I wasn’t going to make a post about it since I will advertise throughout the day on Twitter, but a lot of you don’t follow me on Twitter and I would feel terrible if you wanted it and missed out.

This will be for today only and after today it goes back up to regular price, so don’t wait!

For those of you that are thinking I’m an out of touch, evil, cruel mother – No, this isn’t his birthday present. He’s twelve and he doesn’t want a romance novel (why would he?). He’s getting something really awesome that he’s been wanting and doesn’t think he’s going to get. 🙂

I’ll be back later to do Thief Cat Chronicles (you thought I forgot, didn’t you?).

Have a beautiful day, people!

 

Courage!

So, I finally clicked that little button that says “Publish” on Amazon (I know, it’s earlier than I said). Those of you who have already done this probably know how excited (and nervous) I am. It’s quite a rush! Of course it’s a slightly muted rush since it takes a while to actually be up and available on the site. It’s still pretty exciting though!

Providing everything is approved on schedule, it should be up sometime in the middle of the night (I planned that well didn’t I? Fail). Hopefully it will be up tomorrow (fingers crossed!). If it is, first thing in the morning I will make a new post and link to it (and probably act like a  fool) so any of you who are so inclined can find it easily. 

Either way, I appreciate the amount of support you’ve all given me and look forward to going on this journey with you. The number of people who come here every day is mind-boggling to me and I am thankful for every one of you.

Inspiration?

I have a question, a fairly simple one I think.

Where do you get your inspiration for the stories you write? Do they just pop into your head? Do you see something happen on TV or in a store and think, what if it happened this way?

I’ve always been a story writer. When I was little I would make up stories about where people were going and what was going to happen to them. People that passed in front of my house, people I saw out the window when I was in the car. It just happens. I liked to write them down, though until recently they weren’t fit for consumption, lol.

Now I find myself in a predicament where it continues to happen and I can’t keep up. I write approx. five hours a day, about six thousand words per day (except for when I’m editing) and the list in my head just keeps getting longer. After I finish the trilogy I’m currently working on I have another trilogy planned, then a paranormal romance, and a Christmas romance, and they just keep coming. This morning came with another one.

And they’re not just ideas. They’re complete. Characters, plot, everything. I’m starting to think I’m losing my mind – and I like it. It’s a lot of work and frustrating at times, but it’s so much fun!

So I am curious if anyone else is losing their mind like me, or if I’m all alone out here in crazyland? I would love to know what gets all of you working. Do you lose stories that were great when you thought of them, but you couldn’t get to them before they were replaced? Do you write them down so you won’t lose them? Where do the ideas come from? Do you even know where they come from?
