When doing line edits on a book-length manuscript (we’re talking 344 pages here – at least), always type as you go. At least that was always my hard and fast rule. I’d do the edits on the hard copy, then type them in when I reached the end of each chapter. I didn’t do that with Heir. For some ungodly, twisted reason, I worked my way through the entire manuscript. Now it’s sitting here in clips waiting to be typed in. I knocked out 20 pages tonight, but still…I know better. I totally and completely know better. Someone please remind me of this when I get to Elders, please?

Appalachian gothic fiction writer - my works reflect a love of literature flavored by the darkness and magic residing in these ancient mountains. In my spare time, I Sim, I TikTok, I journal, but I always have a very strange sense of humor. I have lived away from the mountains and lived deep in the mountains. I currently live in Central Kentucky with my life partner and his cat. The mountains, their culture, their superstitions, their particular magics, will always be in my blood.
