Born of Ash and Iron - Delayed

Just a heads up - 
The release of Born of Ash and Iron is being postponed.

I know, I know, I said it would be out October 1, 2014 . . .
But you know what, its not quite ready yet.

Be patient with me.
I'm hoping to have it out sometime within the first week of October. 
Its going to be worth the wait!

My Authorial Motto

Lately I've been frustrated.
About what exactly, I'll discuss in a moment.
For now, just know that during this time, this has been whats coming to mind: 
Picture me as Cuzco and you've got a good idea about how I'm feeling.
About what you say?

Feelings. Books. and Jollies.

That's right. 
You read that right.
Just so happens that those three things are interconnected. 

You see, I'm a believer in the massive spectrum of human emotion.
Pain, Love, Happiness, Sadness.
That's just the tip of the iceberg.
And when it comes to current literature, 
I've noticed that most generally only one emotion that played upon.

LUST.

Lust is great, but you know what,
I'm tired of lust.

I want my readers to feel something more than that.
Feel something deeper.
If I happen to rip your heart out in the process, well that's even better. 

What all this comes down to, is this:
So there you have it.

Late Summer Rain

I spent the weekend at my grandma's house.
It was perfect.
So great in fact, that the weather even wished to send me off with a late summer rainstorm.

Not a bad way to go at all.

The Segway

Call me crazy, but I don't like the heat.
I'm talking AT ALL.

Summer comes along, bringing with it feelings of wilting, melting, and listlessness.
And by now summer has been here FOREVER already.
Which is why, today, while blasting my air conditioner and feeling my hair cling limply to my neck,
 I reached my end.

It is 85 degrees outside.

The sun is shining brightly.

The grass is green.

Some of the leaves are starting to change.

But yet . . . 

I seriously wish I was living in Norway. 

That's right. 
Norway.
Land of coats, boots, gloves, hats, and scarves.
A girl could wear sweaters everyday and be content.
Not to mention, have you seen Norway?

You see?!
Norway is a land of cool weather and enchantment.

Go there I must.
