Wattpad & WriteOn: Chapter Twenty-One


There’s nothing happy to say about this chapter.

It was one of the hardest to write, and even harder to revise.

Ever get so attached to your characters that you actually feel guilty for ruining their lives?

Enter Chapter Twenty-One.

Wattpad & WriteOn: Chapters Galore!


Have I had a busy weekend, let me tell you!

Between Friday and Sunday (yesterday) I was able to update not one…

not two…

not three…

but FOUR chapters!

*head explodes*

How did you do it MB?!

Well, you can thank Camp NaNoWriMo for that! But we’ll get more into that later.

Wattpad-ians, your chapters are here:

Chapter Sixteen

Chapter Seventeen

Chapter Eighteen

Chapter Nineteen

WriteOn-ers, you can check them all out here.

Happy Reading!

Wattpad & WriteOn: Chapter Fifteen


HOLY CRAPBALLS!  How did this happen?

As I told my Wattpad followers, remember that time you edited your draft so much that you were much further into your revisions than you initially thought and were able to get two chapters revised and updated in just as many days??


So Chapter Fifteen has posted.

We have had a time lapse and are now on the eve of Alexstrayna’s coronation.

Will it go off without a hitch? Or will Reylor and his minions crash the Empress’ festivities?

Only one way to find out…

Wattpad & WriteOn: Chapter Fourteen


So let me tell you a little bit about Chapter Fourteen.

It’s brand new.

That’s right.

This is, in essence, a brand hew, first time ever seen, draft of a chapter that was never done before.

You’re welcome.

Wattpad & WriteOn: Chapter Thirteen


Chapter Thirteen has been posted!

Don’t let the unlucky stigma of the number fool you – in this chapter, Alex and Treyan get VERY lucky…

I have to say it’s one of my favorites, to date.  And I think they only get better from here.

It was also the chapter that, in essence, took me the longest to revise.

For a time, I had a version 1.5 out there, and I had stopped at a certain love scene one would find in this chapter, because I didn’t really know how I wanted it to happen.  And then I pretty much just stopped revising all together.

Initially, what happens in this chapter I had happen back in Chapter Ten after Alex and Treyan shared their late-night snack, but I considered it a bit and decided they needed a little more time to get more up close and personal.

Just a little.

So I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Wattpad & WriteOn: Chapter Twelve


What’s this?!

I told you I was productive on my trip.

Chapter Twelve for Two Thousand Years posted last night, where we finally find out Treyan’s fate on that infirmary bed.

Let me know what you think!

Wattpad & WriteOn: Chapter Eleven


That’s right, lovely followers – Chapter Eleven has been posted!

*pats self on the back*

Now I can focus on more important things… like packing for my trip to San Francisco on Thursday.

Have no fear, though!  Chapter Twelve to the end of the novel are bound together with a rather large binder clip, currently sitting in my backpack, waiting to be carried onto the plane for 6 hours and 45 minutes worth of revising.

Have I mentioned I hate flying?

Anyway, I may have a Flash Fiction posted before I leave – it all depends on how much I can get done between now and then- otherwise I’ll be back to my usual antics after I return next Tuesday.

In the meantime, go read!  Eleven chapters should keep you occupied until I return.

Wattpad & WriteOn: Chapter Nine


I changed my mind- I tend to do that a lot.

Last weekend I had posted the first part of Chapter Nine to Wattpad and WriteOn because 1) it was done, and 2) I knew the second part would take me a lot longer to revise, so better to get something up than nothing at all.

But the more I think about it, the more I consider what’s to come, story-wise, and I’ve decided that Chapter Nine is remaining as it is, and the remainder of the draft will become Chapter Ten.  There’s a lot of heavy dialogue coming up, and I think I need to centralize that more.

So yeah… Chapter Nine is up, Chapter Ten will post this weekend.

Wattpad & WriteOn: Chapter Eight


I was feeling motivated this weekend.

Chapter Eight has been revised and is now live on both Wattpad and WriteOn!

More to come!

Wattpad & WriteOn: Chapter Seven



… at least as far as its 2nd draft revisions are concerned.

I don’t know why this one took me so long to finish the revisions on this one, but I swear I was stuck at moving on from the first part forever.  It wasn’t until I started putting the effort and energy into this blog, Wattpad and WriteOn that the motivation to actually get these revisions done finally took over.

For those Wattpaddians out there, Chapter Seven can be found here.

For everyone else, it’s on WriteOn here.

Please let me know what you think!  Chapter Eight’s revisions are in the works so I hope to have it up sooner than later.  I actually cut the end of Chapter Seven off to move it over to Chapter Eight because I realize I’m tired of chapters ending and beginning with people waking up.

Anyway, thanks, and Happy Reading!
