The New England Authors Expo was a blast!

Let's just say I learned quite a bit, made new friends, and definitely took notes on what to improve on for next time.

Check out all the pictures I posted on Instagram!

I look forward to the next batch of conventions coming up.

The day after, I ended up going to Salem, MA. I didn't have much time to explore, but I did check out the Witch Museum and a few shops. 

Now the important stuff: News. As mentioned, once the expo was over, I'd start furiously working on my next book. I just need to get back into writing mode. Fret not, the whole trip proved to be inspiring, and I've already come up with ideas for another series following this one.

More updates to be posted in the coming months!

Happy Birthday to me! I have presents for YOU!

Yay! It's my birthday! And to celebrate, I've completed my gift bag!

I'll be bringing a few of these to the NEAE with me to giveaway to some lucky patrons. The rest, will remain behind for a couple of online giveaways!

To see the contents of the bag, check out my Instagram. You can also find all relevant information about the goodies inside in the comments section. Be sure to check out and patronize all the listed shops. There's some real talent behind these creations.

Volume 10 status updates to come after the expo!

June Updates

I'm still on for the New England Author's Expo. Check out my calendar of events for more info.

As for the current status of my upcoming book, I've had a little time to myself (actually, I injured my shoulder and was taken off the work schedule for Saturday), and I cranked out a few thousand words. I plan on writing more today, but the current volume is up to 6k words, and I plan on it being a book on the smaller side, mainly because of the content.

The other thing I hope to get done BEFORE this book comes out, is a companion comic or short story about what happened between volumes 9 and 10. I plan on putting this on my patreon page and tiered reward content. Don't worry, I'm not going to charge a billion dollars for patrons to see it. It's a bit of spoiler content so it'll probably be in the $5-10 tier. I'm going to try and get as much artwork crammed in as I can. Right now, I'm working on concept art with a new artist on getting depictions of Vago as well as other side characters in the book (especially since the story pertains to him and his parentage).

Back to my original point, my goal is to get the first draft of volume 10 done before my trip to MA, and hopefully a completed copy out before the end of August.

In related news, the gift bag contents are coming along nicely, and right now, I need to work on getting print ups of bookmarks. Also, I plan on FINALLY getting my fan art page going. I was waiting on a few more pieces, but since there's been some delay on the artists' end, I'm just going to get it started now... because Pam Montes worked so damned hard on her pieces.

That's all for now!

Toodles.

Tiny blips....

I'm here at 2am with a small update. Since I've been working like crazy, as you know, I haven't had much time to write. As luck would have it, I've had today, and possibly tomorrow, off. My goal is to get to at least 10k words by the end of the week.

I also forgot to post this: shortly after I published my last book, I had an interview with Marc Laton, who has started a new series on self-published authors.

You can check out the video here.

Along with that, I'm still publishing How-To videos for future self-published authors who are looking to get into the game, and who may be lost on the little technical details of the process. It was a lot of information and a little grueling to lock it all down when I started, so I figured I'd try to help by giving back. I'm still trying to get about 70+ more subscribers so I can get a custom YouTube domain name. If you or anyone you know is interested, please subscribe to my channel.

You can check it out here.

That's all for now!

It's here!

Volume 9!

 

And only two weeks late.

Sorry about that. There won't be much of an update since I'm super busy at work, and working on some youtube videos. As stated in my last post, Vol. 10 will be out at the end of summer. I have a lot on my plate for the next couple of months, and I won't have much time to write. With this book, I set a deadline for myself and ended up missing it. This is why I don't do deadlines! All I can guarantee is a general time frame. I'm still working on my other projects: videos, podcasts, and audio books; and I feel this is a good place to pause in the series so I can work on those things. If I end up with a spot of time, you can guarantee I'll be using it to write Vol. 10. I want nothing more than to get this series completed. All future books have been outlined, and I can tell you, with confidence, that there will be no more than fifteen books in this series. While I've had requests to do character spin-offs, comics, and other things, the core series won't be any more than fifteen. One, I don't want to drag it out (I really hate that), two, I have other books and ideas I want to tackle, three, there's more investment to be made in what exists already; hence the audio books.

A couple of things on the immediate agenda: I'm being interviewed for a youtube video tomorrow. I'll post the link and details once it's completed. I also have an expo I'll be attending in late July. Check out my calendar of events tab at the top of this page. I want to try and focus on getting myself out there, promoting this series. I have some really awesome and dedicated fans, and I feel this is a series more people would enjoy if they just knew about it.

If all goes well, the core books in this series should be wrapped up by next summer. Hopefully by then, I'll have a few signings/conventions/expos under my belt!

And if you'd like to support me throughout this next year, please check out and contribute to my Patreon!

MAY DAY! MAY DAY!

Okay... May Day was the 1st, I'm a little late.

I'm also a little late with my book. DON'T HURT ME! I'm sorry. Things got a little backed up on my end, but the book is currently going through edits and the cover is DONE. So right now, we're just waiting on the editor.

I've received multiple requests to submit fan art. Since they all came at once, I've decided to collect them then dedicate a page on the site specifically for fan art submissions.

Another thing I'm getting closer to working out is a comic. I might strictly do an online comic. (I don't know much about the print comic process to even tackle that, but fret not... it'll probably be something I do down the line.)

These comics will most likely be on my patreon ONLY, for a short while, before officially being posted on my website. Oh... yeah... btw I have a patreon now! https://www.patreon.com/bettina

If this works out, it'll pave the way to having a swag store, an online comic feed, and other stuff.

Don't worry, I'm not gonna shill cheap t-shirts and other crap (unless you seriously want that stuff.) It'll mostly be focusing on the art of my books, as well as links to local crafters and artist friends of mine who are contributing to my gift bags. The only "cheap" thing I might have on the swag page will be buttons. I fucking LOVE buttons. My purse is covered in them. Rather than go the "cheap" route, I might look into companies who do custom-die cut buttons. (If you have anyone in mind, please send me names through the submission form.) Maybe they can include the Blame The Goth Girl logo, the necklace, some symbols... who knows.

Things I'll be getting prints of for sure, mainly because they are a part of my patreon, are bookmarks and posters. My first book cover, to me, is iconic. It sets the tone for the series, and represents my main character through and through. I don't plan on ever altering that first cover. If by some grace of whatever, a publisher decides to pick up my series, it'll be contingent on the fact that the first cover will NEVER change. *slams foot down.* But that means I'll be doing posters of my first book cover. They will be included in the patreon contributions, but they'll also be available here. I'm not sure on the price yet... but I'm not looking to make a buck off posters, I can tell you that much. They'll probably be "at cost" and cost of shipping. Otherwise, I'd be giving them away at signings, conventions, and expos—like the one I'm going to on July 26th! Don't forget! (I'm not telling YOU not to forget, I'm telling MYSELF not to forget.)

Anyway, please keep the submission train going. It really makes my day when I wake up to see site submissions and comments about people interesting in furthering my little series. You guys are so boss.

Another brief update....

Volume 9 will be off to the editor tomorrow, and I'll be hunting down another cover artist meanwhile. May is shaping up to be a really busy month for me at work. I won't have much time to work on the next book which is why I'm crunching so hard to get this completed before hell month begins.

Fret not! Things will calm down a bit in June and I hope to have Volume 10 completed before I go to the New England Authors Expo in Danvers, MA on July 26th. Worst case scenario, the book will be available shortly after the expo.

I plan on doing some signings, as well as giving away free copies of my books. But the cherry on this sundae is the gift bag I'll be giving away.

As the day comes closer, I'll reveal what's in the bag (it's gonna be good), and do one online give away as well as a few more at the event.

Another thing I plan on doing while in MA, is visit the Witch Museum in Salem. What better way to celebrate the content of my book than by paying homage to those who lost their lives over greed, religion, fear, and good 'ol fashioned misogyny.

If any of you are near the area, please stop by. The event is free to the public!

April April April!

Here's a recap: Volume's 1-7 are now in a box set as well as available in paperback. Volume 8 will be in available in paperback around the time that Volume 9 will be released (end of month.)

My youtube channel is up but there aren't any videos. I have one that I made a couple of weeks ago, but I wasn't happy with the result (I was also starting to get sick at the time), so I've decided to make a new version. Since I'm free for the next week, I should have something completed by Monday. My goal is to make a few How-To videos for anyone interested in self-publishing. Some of the videos are simple things like formatting a document, to uploading a file to Amazon.

Aside from the channel itself, I don't have a personalized youtube domain UNTIL I get at least 100 subscribers. So if you keep track of this blog, please please please subscribe to my youtube page. I'm not trying to whore out subs for money, I'd just like the custom domain.

My mailing list campaign was sketchy at best, and I might not do another one until after I set up a second NoiseTrade advertisement. Something I've seen other writers talk about is including a short story or companion files with each newsletter. It's something that you'd find on patreon, except there's no donation required. If and when I do another newsletter, I'll be sure to include something extra. Otherwise, whatever short stories I write... I'll probably end up uploading here.

Anyway, that's all for now. Ta-ta, tater tots.

 

Giveaway!

Well that sucked. I deleted my blog post while editing it. ROUND TWO!

Okay so, yesterday, there was a giveaway of my box set hosted, and so far 4 of the 5 prizes have been claimed. (I've got a golden tiiiiiiiiickeeeeeeeeet) There's still one left, all it requires is that you follow me on Amazon. You'll have a chance at a win by clicking on this link

I was going to wait until all books were available, but since most of them are right now... I'll just announce it anyway: Volume's 1-7 are now available in paperback. Volume's 5, 6, and 7 are still processing, but once they are up, you'll be able to purchase them from my Amazon Author Page. I'd like to go over Volume 8 once more to make sure I've caught any and all tiny errors before getting a paperback version set up.

I've been inundated with projects (as you can see), and they left Volume 9 to sit unfinished. It's mostly tweaking some things in the story, before writing the 2nd draft. Again, I promised end of April... and I'm holding to that.

The latest project I've been working on involves resources for other self-publishers. I'm working on a youtube channel with video resources. It'll lead to me having another page on this website with embedded videos, links, and "how-to" articles.

It's not going to be a resource for writing, per se, but if you're interested in that stuff... please check out Ellen Brock. She's amazing. She also has youtube videos for writers (both new and seasoned), and editors, and she hosts a novel boot camp every July.

This will be a technical guide on navigating those tiny and tedious things one must do to get your books on places like Amazon, Smashwords, and other sites. As well as converting your ebooks to paperback files appropriate for uploading. And finally, a formatting guide so you don't have to deal with auto rejections from the aforementioned websites. Most of this is information I've acquired over the last four years since first deciding to self-publish, which I'm now confident enough to share with the rest of you. My first video is... well... you can totally tell it's a first video. I tried my best. I just need to tweak a few things and I should have it uploaded in the next few days.

But I digress, I'll be using most of this week to work on Volume 9.

Box Set!

After three days straight of tedious work, I was able to combine the first seven volumes into one box set. My next step is setting up Amazon Paperback for each of my books.

Lately, I've been toying the idea of having an audio book made. It's a part of the bigger picture, and something I've personally wanted to do for a while now.

Another item on the agenda is an Amazon Giveaway. As soon as I set it up, I'll have 5 box sets to give away to people who follow me on my Amazon author page.

Last but not least, I'm thinking about starting a youtube channel about my writing process, life in Vermont, and other random topics that come to mind. Not that I expect anyone to be interested (it was either that or a podcast), I'll probably do it because my mind is always coming up with stuff to do. I even came up with an idea for a YA novel. (I know, that's not my shtick, but it still came to me.)

I'll be working out the details of that later on. I'm too focused on finishing up my Blame The Goth Girl series to focus on anything else. I still have 2/3 books in a trilogy I started working on three years ago. Hint: It was the first book I ever put out... and it seriously needs an overhaul.

Anyway, here's the link to the Box Set! Happy reading!

Happy Spring Equinox!

You wouldn't think it was spring from looking outside my house... but it is. For some of you, it was never not spring (or summer for that matter... both figuratively and literally—OHAI, AUSSIE FANS!)

I'm giving an update today because I have a few announcements:

First, Volumes 1 and 2 will no longer be free starting March 31st. I decided on the last day of this month, just in case everyone else thought it would be an April Fool's joke if I did it on the first of next month. There are a few reasons for this, it's not because I'm grubby or stingy (I mean, I practically give my books away when asked for them), it's because I'm going to be starting box-set sales. My goal is to go at least 15 books with this series. In fact, I've already had ideas about spin-offs involving some of your favorite characters, along with some new ones. I can't go into details because it would spoil too much of what I have planned for the series. But I can tell you, it takes place in the future.

Another thing to note; I've had a lot of time on my hands and I'm nearly done with Volume 9. It's longer than expected (much like how Volume 6 was), but I figured—more content means more entertainment, with the end result of, more happy!

But I digress—the box-sets. I haven't decided on whether to break the box-sets into groups of 5, or more, because of how many books are currently out. I'd like to keep the "idea" of getting Volumes 1 and 2 at no cost because it will be wrapped up with other books. So I'm debating whether or not to do the first 5 or the first 7. Either way, I'll be offering up the box-sets before I take down the free volumes. Another reason is because of people who only read free books without delving into a series. In other words, no matter how compelling the books is, or how enticing the cliffhanger may be, they only read a free book because it's free. They have zero interest in committing to the series. And like any lady, I'm looking for commitment.

Lastly, another reason for removing free access is giveaways. In other words, I'll be paying for my own books to give away to others. It's a way to get more interest on my amazon page for the most part.

I'm still working on a character page for people who need "refreshers," or because my explanation of them wasn't enough to fill in the gaps people may have. Like, "Who is that guy? What is his purpose?" I hope my writing is good enough to answer these questions on its own, but I also know there is some time between the books, and I don't expect you all to reread them (though I hope you do!)

Now, moving along to other news. For those who might be anxious about more cliffhangers... fret not, there will always be SOME kind of cliffhanger, but Volume 9 will resolve things as well as pave way for what's to come. Since this story line begins in 2011, and the most recent two books take place in 2012, Volume 10 will catch us up closer to the present. It will begin in late 2016, that way all future volumes well be closer to our time frame. I did this on purpose, this was always the intention, no, I'm not lying, and there are so many surprises to come.

For the final announcement (and this is a big one), I'M GONNA HAVE PHYSICAL COPIES OF MY BOOKS! YAY!

Before that happens, however, I need to go over these books with a fine-tooth comb. I will be doing revisions and edits of current books, trying, with all my might, to catch any typos, errors, inconsistencies, and/or general weird shit that just doesn't make sense. Even the professionals still let errors slip through, but I aim for perfection. Many of you have reached out to me BEGGING for physical copies... and more than anything, I want that too. Since Amazon has a new feature to create a paperback of the book, and of course, there's always create space, there should be no hang ups. Outside of the editing, I have to get a spine and back cover designed.

Again, I hope to have this all worked out by the end of May, if not sooner.

Oh, one last thing. I know I said there would be a newsletter, but I totally got distracted from it. I still have the account set up and I still have lists of email addresses, so I hope to have something out soon.

As always, please like my Facebook page, follow me on Twitter, like and comment here in the blog, and/or subscribe to my imaginary newsletter on the contact page. If you're feeling extra kind, like my GoodreadsSmashwords, and Amazon pages. And most importantly, please leave reviews!

Yay March!

Volume 8 has finally arrived. As I posted on Facebook, I'm so, so sorry for the delay. It has been a chaotic few months, but that's no excuse!

Volume 9 is about halfway done with the first draft, and I hope to have it out by the end of April (cover and all.)

I also mention re-reading some of the past books for clues and hints on what's to come, including a trip to the past. While I don't want to spoil or reveal too much... let's just say... pay attention to what Rome says about his past in current books.

The other thing I want to do, is create a page for the cast of characters in the series. One, it'll help keep characters who don't regularly appear in the series fresh in everyone's minds, and two, it might clear up come confusion on those with similar sounding names. I will sort them by books and parts. I do this because I don't want to spoil things for new readers when I give a detailed description of someone who doesn't appear until Volume 6, and they are just tackling Volume 2. The list will have spoiler warnings, categories, descriptions of the types of creatures found in the series and their abilities as I see them in this universe. It'll almost be sort of a wikia, except I'll be in control of the information. (That came off profoundly dictator-like, and I'm sorry.)

For those whose eyes are burning for words and whose fingers are itching to swipe... here are the links to Volume 8 on both Amazon and Smashwords.

Quick February update!

The cover is on its way. I posted a sneak peek on my Twitter and Facebook (both linked at the bottom of this page) if you're interested in seeing the general concept.

Once the cover is finished, the book will be ready to go!

Again, I won't be doing pre-orders. I think they're one big crock, and I get way too anxious when waiting for my own book to be available. I have enough stress already.

Volume 9's first draft is almost halfway done. Since I have some extra time this month, I figured I'd get it finished as quickly as possible, so it's likely that we'll see it out sometime in March.

As a side project, I'm working on a short story submission for a magazine. If they accept it and I get the okay, I'll post it here. I'll also post the magazine info for those interested as well.

Just a small note to those who are anxious about our current times: keep your head up. When things get too rough, get lost in a book or listen to some ambient sounds. And once you collect yourself, volunteer, donate, march, protest... do whatever you need to do to make this world a better place.

January update!

What a busy and terrifying month.

While my book was off to the editor, I went down to Washington D.C. for the women's march. Nothing is more inspiring or powerful than seeing a bunch of people join together in the name of feminism. The march ended up being about more much than just women's issues, but I can assure you, everyone there was a feminist.

While this first week of our new overlord's presidency proved to be the scariest experience I've bore witness to since 9/11, the march proved to be a promise of hope. There are at least four other big marches in the works in the spring alone. Goddess willing, I'll be able to partake in all of them.

I've mentioned before that I don't want to politicize this blog or my stance as an author, but AS an author, it's my duty to put into words the emotions of those I'm surrounded by. If, by now, it hasn't been clear from the tone of my writing, you should know that I'm a feminist. I'm pro-equality, I'm pro-choice, I'm pro-immigration, pro-healthcare for all, pro-science, among other things. If none of these things sound appealing to you, then you probably shouldn't be here... unless you're looking for a way to change your mind.

In happier news, I'm working on getting the cover for my current book. Outside of that, the book itself is finished. I made a promise on my facebook feed that anyone who was interested in an ARC could message me for a copy. I'm more interested in your pleasure than your money. I experience joy when others are happy reading my work. This is why I write.

Another thing I'm working on is getting a newsletter going. I still have a list of emails of those who have subscribed via this website and with noisetrade. And since I have about a month off from my day job, I'll be working on getting those things going. The other thing I'm currently working on is volume 9 of this series. If I'm lucky, and my brain doesn't shut off in the process, the first draft should be finished before I return to work.

For now, enjoy some of the pictures and videos I took during the women's march!

Quick December update!

As of two minutes ago, I completed the first draft of volume 8. YAY!

This weekend, I'll be working on the second draft and then some revisions.

Again, sorry for the delay—it's been a busy few months.

After finally seeing each scene play out, I realized it was worth the wait. Though my general outline for this book has been planned out since last year, the way it all ended up was far, far better. As I've said... sometimes, the characters just take over and do it their way.

I'm extremely excited about the next phase for this book. My intention for the cover is still something which needs sorting, but I hope to have a sneak peak by the end of the year. Hell, I hope to have this book out by Christmas!

We'll see.

Anyhoo... carry on.

November update! (Sorry about missing October.)

As I said in the title, sorry about missing October. It was a busy month for me. As I've made mention on this site as well as others, I needed to get a part time job to help with expenses; they don't call it struggling author for nothin'!

Volume 8 is officially two months behind schedule and I profusely apologize for that. Fret not! Everything is mapped out, as well as the next five books, and now that I have a steady work schedule, it'll be easier to get back into writing mode—yes, even with the holidays around the corner.

Some updates. While book 8 is behind, the previous two volumes are now free from the KDP select curse on Amazon. As of right now, they are available on Smashwords, and I've updated the appropriate links.

Volume 6 is available here.

Volume 7 is available here.

I see a few newsletter subs trickle in and again, I've been behind on quite a bit. Outside of a welcome letter for my website/Noisetrade signup, I haven't gotten around to making a monthly newsletter. I'm doubly upset by this because not only is Halloween my favorite holiday, but I had something cute planned for an October email. While getting actual content published is my first priority, I'll try to get an update in the works before Thanksgiving. Who knows, maybe I'll make it Halloween themed just to counter all of that 2-month-early-Christmas propaganda.

Also, did anyone else notice the lack of Trick-or-treater's this year?

Anyway, while trying to keep non-political, I have to say this election was rough on a lot of people. My November update was probably a week late because of this.

My books tend to be on the liberal-feminist side and if I didn't alienate people with the content, I'm not too worried about driving away those who visit this page. Still though, I try to keep neutral about some things when it comes to voicing my opinion. The last thing I'd want is to alienate any readers. If you read my books, I know you have at least SOMEthing of an open mind and I appreciate that.

If there's one thing I've learned throughout this year... it's that we need to have an open discussion and engage with those on the opposite side. We have a seriously divided country... and even with Hillary winning the popular vote, it was the lowest tally in the last twenty or so years.

For anyone who wants to have a legitimate conversation, or for those who feel scared in general, you are always welcome to reach out to me.

End Of September Update!

Volume 8 is coming along nicely. It'll be a larger book, however. The upside: more to read! The downside: longer to write. This book is what I like to call the "calm before the storm." Expect frightening subplots, bone chilling entities, and horrific uncertainty as Onyx goes through a J-horror-like situation.

This book is inspired by my love of Japanese style horror as well as rich Japanese culture and tradition (emphasis on tradition... you'll see.)

As with all updates, I don't have much to say in regards to the KDP Select lock-down of volume 7 except that it'll be freed up next month. At that point I'll be upload both 6 and 7 to Smashwords for all of my non-Amazon readers (as I know there are many.)

Also, the NoiseTrade campaign was a success, and for all of my readers and subscribers, expect a Halloween-themed special newsletter in the coming weeks. This is my most favorite time of the year and favorite holiday, and I want to share that with all of my fans.

Happy Fall!

End of August update and a tiny rant...

I wasn't going to use this news feed as a platform to vent, but I had to get something off my chest: literary agents.

Granted, the world of being an agent isn't all glitz and glam. It's hard work and I respect that. What I don't respect is expecting something from your author queries that you just aren't willing or able to give in return. If you expect the author querying you to do their research; i.e. looking up interviews, articles, bios... getting your damned name right... at least address them with something other than "Dear Author" in return.

There are writers out there who get rejected day after day, week after week, yet they press on. That's admirable. I can deal with rejection (I feel that comes with experience and age... sorry kids), but I can't deal with being brushed off without one iota of respect. All I ask is that some of these agents do an introspective look at their own hypocrisy before dishing out demands.

Of course this rejection letter happened to drop in my inbox on the same day I found out that another job I'd been declined for was posted again. I can handle being passed up for someone better suited for the job, but if that person doesn't work out—I'm still here! It's a little disheartening.

Either way, since my best friend calls me one tough cookie, I decided to do her right and get back to writing and trying. After, when my brain finally let me, I looked up other agents to take a chance on. Hopefully I'll get more feedback other than, "Dear Author."

 

There are a couple of updates I wanted to share. The Contact page now has a place at the bottom for newsletter signups. Also, my work is now on Draft2Digital/Books2Read. They run the same platform as Smashwords, but they also distribute to some lesser known retailers.

Blame The Goth Girl Vol. 5 is also now on Smashwords.

Starting sometime in October, I will no longer have books up for KDP Select/Kindle Unlimited. I find that the "unlimited" part is very limiting to anyone who doesn't use the program... or Amazon for that matter. I'll make another post when this takes place.

Volume 8 is coming along nicely. I'm about 10k deep in the first draft, and I hope to tackle unexplored territory... including (but not limited to) Japanese mythology, horror, and lore. So for anyone into anime or J-horror, I'll have a surprise for you come publishing time. One of my most favorite things about this series are the covers. I take such joy in sketching them out and leaving little clues about the book's contents.  Each cover is unique to the happenings of the story,  and something I won't budge on regardless of the future of the series.

Thanks for reading!

 

Book Update!

FINALLY! Volume 7 is now available on Amazon.

I kept my promise of stopping  KDP Select as it was alienating all of my readers on other platforms. However, to keep it consistent, I won't be uploading this book to other retailers by way of Smashwords until Volume 6 is freed up (which won't be until late October.)
