Child of the Sage

I figured that since I am currently offering the novella for free, I should probably share the story of how Child of the Sage came to be. After I finished writing Portal Seeker in the early summer of 2021, I thought I was done with my series. After all, I had three loose stories that […]

Two years ago

The first of February marks a milestone for me, one that I celebrated with a post last year that you can read if you would like. The day marks my two year anniversary at my present job. Many of you will note that I don’t share on public social media what my job is. I’ve […]

Portal Seeker

I get people who ask me where I come up with the ideas for my novels and stories in my Portals Series. Since I already wrote blog posts on both The Keeper of the Key and Last of His Kind, I figured I would talk about Portal Seeker in this post. This is my favorite […]

Last of His Kind

I get people who ask me where I come up with the ideas for my novels and stories in my Portals Series. Since I already wrote a blog post on The Keeper of the Key when I last offered it for free, I figured this time around, I would write about the next book in […]

National Novel Writing Month

As if I didn’t have enough on my plate as it was – after all, I am in the middle of getting editing on Luna, writing two more novellas for the Portals Series, and working hard at keeping my page view streak going on a few things while working a full time job and having […]

The Keeper of the Key

Periodically, I offer one of my Portals Series for free for a few days via Amazon Kindle in the hopes that perhaps one person or more will leave a review. This weekend, you can get the first book, The Keeper of the Key, free on Amazon Kindle. Until Halloween is over, it’s completely free! The […]

Reviews: A necessary evil?

I’m flying a bit high today – you see, I got my first independent review yesterday. A fellow #writingcommunity follower from Twitter read THREE of my works and wrote her opinion on them. (Check out her blog for the review.) I am elated to have reached this pinnacle of writing, that other authors are starting […]

Anthologies Now Available!

For those of my readers that have been paying attention, I had released 12 different novellas in my Portals Series as Kindle editions over the last year. Because of their size (as each was only between 50 and 90 pages long), it was not economically feasible to release them as paperback copies. Being mindful of […]

It’s been a wild and crazy year

One year ago, I started a new project…. I started actively blogging on this very site. I had started blogs in the past, notably the genealogical history blog I still write on Blogger, but I hadn’t actively aimed to do more than a post a month or so. My goal with this blog wasn’t really […]

Free Novel This Weekend!

I often hear: “K. S., I think it’s cool you’re writing. I want to read one of your books….” I also hear questions like “Why aren’t you famous yet?” and “How many books have you sold?” and “Are you even trying to sell your books?” Here’s your chance to help me become famous AND read […]
