Blog Feature via Mary's Bookcase.
Mary Ane Yarde author of The Du Lac Chronicles, has published on her blog Mary's Bookcase, my interview with character Lydia, my main character from The Colony. Delving a little further into the life of Lydia as she answered the interview questions, was a fun and interesting piece to write. I hope you enjoy it!

It's amazing how you can take a perfectly formed paragraph, believing you can improve upon it, and then completely screw it up.
The Last City.
I believe I just finished the first draft for The Last City, the sequel to The Colony. Happy Day!

Thank you Mary Anne Yarde, for a wonderful review.
Finally, I have some awesome reviews on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Goodreads.
It has been almost a year since I decided to publish The Colony. My purpose was not to market and sell my work, but merely to write and publish - that has been my dream ever since I was a child. However, I quickly realized that if I want to write and publish full time, and continue to pay bills, marketing and selling my work is kindof necessary. (Please no blonde jokes... ok, maybe one.)
I'm not sure why I chose to launch my writing career with The Colony, I just felt compelled to. The idea for the story, came about at the same time that I'd decided to begin publishing my work. Shortly thereafter, a struggle began between The Colony and another story (that has since remained in the final stage of editing), as I tried to decide which to publish first.
Currently, The Colony is available in e-book format only, however, it will soon be available in paperback and when it is I will have full details listed here, including links to purchase.
The sequel to The Colony, titled The Last City, is on its way, and I will post excerpts here once I feel they are ready for human consumption.
