New contribution to Totally Novel on writing, update on Sweet Sixteen Killer

I've been pretty quiet lately on the blog, sorry about that. I've been laying mostly low, though I did recently begin contributing to a new website for writers and readers called Totally Novel. My first contribution for members of the site is a post I titled 3 things that prevented me from writing a novel. To read the post, sign up for a free trial. Take a look around and if you don't wanna stay, don't renew membership. That said, it's a pretty cool effort being put together by a former Google+ member like myself. As a matter of fact there are several members on the site from the old Google+ days. (Side note: there is a free membership option)
I will be contributing to the Totally Novel blog bi-monthly for now. My next addition will be in August. I'm super excited for the site and I hope you can come join us and become a part of the groups, forums, blog, workshops, and more. 
All that said, I haven't given up here. This is still my primary site and blog. 👊

ROSE'S THORN eBook for $0.99

Well, I was working on publishing Rose's Thorn as an eBook at Smashwords, and I somehow published it unwittingly.

Rose's Thorn is one of the darkest pieces I've ever written, and I'm not sure I'll ever write anything darker than it honestly. The content of the piece is not for the faint of heart, as it blends domestic violence in a horror/fantasy/supernatural setting.

The piece originally started out as my first take at writing a super hero. But this is not your usual comic book super hero by any means.

Many thanks to +Philip Neale and my mother-in-law for editing this piece some time ago, and shame on me for sitting on it for so long.

Also, thanks to +Morgen Bailey for her piece about publishing through Smashwords, though I am afraid my first walk in the park was a little clumsy.

Follow the link in the FB post below to purchase and get reading. Be sure to leave a review and let me know what you think. It's a short novel and reads at a pretty quick pace.
