Woot! It’s finally here! And getting some pretty good reviews on Amazon so far😀 Sure, most of them are from my alpha arc team, but they are honest, and that’s all I care about.
Dangerous creatures was a fun box set for me, and one that I might put into print, if only so I can get my hands on Mina’s story in print. Hers is a short bonus novella about the lives of hunters, and what she will do when she finds out the love of her life was turned into one of the monsters she’s getting paid to hunt and kill.
High stakes! I’ll have to contact my friend who has a hubby who does formatting for cheap, because even though Vellum does an amazing job on ebooks, it has yet to do formatting for print (Which is such a damned shame)
With Dangerous Creatures released, it’s time for me to focus more attention onto Alpha Dragon, as well as the short Christmas Billionaire tie in to Arrangement with a Billionaire. Those are going to be awesome😉

People ask me this question all the time. They wonder how I thought of a book idea or character name or even how I could have imagined a scene. It’s as if inspiration was something magical that only a few people ever experience.
Yet, I wonder that same question about other people, not writers. I know where writers’ ideas come from. Our ideas come from everywhere. Anything can be inspiring. I walk my dogs every day and ideas come to me. I drive down the road and more ideas come to me. Once I was sitting in the mall and a scene popped into my mind. Writers get ideas from everything in life.
The “place where ideas come from” is not a mystery to me. How we each interpret, then share our ideas is the mystery. Inspiration comes from everywhere. It’s a matter of how we process what we see or hear that helps us create something no one else could imagine.
How artists create paintings, or home decorators design a living room, or how my cover artist takes my abstract idea and comes up with a beautiful cover, or how the baker creates a cake that’s more a piece of art than plain old cake—those are the things I wonder about.
Everyone has a gift. Some of us write. Some paint or draw. Others are gifted in working with people. Still others have “the gift of gab.”

Nothing seems simple these days. Go to the store and you have at least six different types of apples to choose from. A whole bakery section houses so many different types of bread. Don’t even get me started on cheeses or types of beans. And to think, these are the easier choices to make.
What do I do when I grow up? What do I study in school? Who do we date or make friends with? Each day is full of choices–some easy and some hard. For some, the answer is always changing.
Why is it so hard for us to make choices? My husband loves collecting different sayings and one he uses quite often is, everything in life has a solution except death. I love this saying because it grounds me and gets me to try things I might not usually try. And why not? A lot of times we fear the unknown or don’t want to put ourselves out there because we don’t want to face rejection. At the end of the day should we really care? Will the choices we make now haunt us for the rest of our lives? Some might but most won’t, so is it worth denying ourselves the opportunity to take a risk?
My advice? Choose what you want and go for it. I’m living that advice now and loving it. Don’t live in fear and miss out on what is important. You’ll only regret it later on.
Happy writing this week and may you be inspired!
