Hi Lovely People,

Happy Saturday! It's 2019: The Year Of The Yes And Success! Saying yes to those beautiful dreams and no to naysayers! I apologize for not writing as frequently but I have been busy working and working on my WIPs among other things. I have some things in the works. Soon I will starting my own vlogs. I have already launched Artistry Haven Publishing Magazine. I am looking for authors for the February and March issue. Not too long ago Kim Chance did the Book Selection tag on her vlog. I love book tags so I decided to do this one.

I hope you enjoy. 😊



1. How do you decide what you are going to read next? Do you pick
what's trending? Read in a specific genre? Or is it random? 

  • Depends on my mood and sometimes random.

2. How important is the cover? Do you judge a book by its cover?

  • The Cover Is Important. Alot Of The Times I Do.

3. Do you read hardcovers, paperbacks, ebooks, or listen to

  • I read hardcover, paperback, and ebooks. I don't listen to audio books.

4. Do you prefer series or stand-alones? Why?

  • I prefer series because I get to know the characters more and I get to see the world more and the story gets better with each book usually.

6. Bookmarks or Dog Ear? What do you use as a bookmark?

The Savior's Champion

Hello Fabulous People!

I hope you are all having an enchantingly blessed day! I've been taking short hiatus breaks from social media. I didn't post much of anything. I have been having financial setbacks which is delaying the release of Rise Of The Legacy. I am still writing and I will be adding to Lyrical Heart.  At the moment my current WIP is TOTL (Trials Of The Legacy) it is book 2 in the Valhalla Legacy series. I do have some writer related news though. Soon I will be adding to The Indie Way on my website. I didn't realize I could share these tips eventhough my book isn't published and my series isn't complete yet until I helped someone out just recently. I will also be updating the FAQs on my website as well, so be on the lookout!

 In Other News

It's official Jenna Moreci's adult fantasy fiction novel, The Savior's Champion is now available! So to celebrate TSC's debut I decided to do the TSC book tag created by author and YouTuber, Dahlia Burroughs♤!

 1. SP Love: Show some love for a self-published author. 
  • Jenna Moreci is a fellow indie author that I admire and respect. I enjoy her sci-fi book, Eve: The Awakening. She's one of the few authors I can say I actually like more than one series by them. I can't wait to read her next action pack book full of comedy, bloodshed, and romance.

2. Fantasy Love: Show some love for a fantasy novel/series that influenced/impacted you. 

  • Jennifer Estep's Elemental Assassin urban fantasy series is by far my favorite to-date. Every since I stumble upon the series at the Emily Fowler Public Library while attending TWU in Denton I fell in love with the series. Another series is Throne Of Glass by Sarah J Maas my top two favorite fantasy series. Outside of a minor character in a book I read these two series probably had the most influence over my inspiration for the Immortal series. Although the original inspiration for the Immortal series is a minor fae character in a story I read.

3. True Love: A book with healthy relationships.

  • Pheobe and Griffin (Oh. My. Gods series by Tera Lynn Childs)

4. Representation: A book with all the diversity. 

  • Gracling by Kristin Cashore

5. Tobias: A book with a gentle warrior.

  • Gwen Lark - Qualify: The Atlantis Grail Book 1 by Vera Nazarian

6. Deadly Beast: A monster of a character.

  • King Leck (Immiker) in Gracling by Kristin Cashore 

7. Peaches: A book with hella symbology.

  • Angelbound, Angelbound Book 1 by Christina Bauer

8. Brutal Battles: A book with the best fight scenes.

 I chose two books πŸ˜‰

  • Spider's Bite: Elemental Assassin Book 1 by Jennifer Estep and Throne Of Glass: Throne of Glass Book 1 by Sarah J Maas.

9. Not What It Seems: Crazy plot twist.

10. Self Love: Talk about your book/WIP

  • WIP: VL2: Trials Of The Legacy: The Chosen Born are united, but it came at a cost. They must overcome the trials that lie ahead before the coming war. The Key of Fate that the Millennium Force is after has disappeared from the school's library. Now it's a race against time to retrieve it to prevent their enemy from doing the unthinkable and return what was lost, but in doing so it may just cost them their lives or another's. 

 Congrats Jenna on TSC's debut!! I wish TSC a huge success!!

Happy Writing!😊

Valentine's Day Tag!!

Hello Lovely People,

I hope you are enjoying a lovely Friday afternoon!!😊 I have a lot going on. I do plan to deliver updates as they arrive. I know I haven't done the quarterly goals post for this quarter. I will not be doing quarterly blogs  anymore atleast not for awhile. In other news...in the spirit of light hearted fun and Valentine's Day I decided to  do the V-Day Tag. I think Valentine's Day is a bit cheesy and love should be expressed everyday of the year, but I love the chocolates, teddy bears, and other cutesy themed stuff of that day though😊. I know V-Day was over two days ago, but I still think it's fun and I like tags. Jenna Moreci (author of Eve: The Awakening and The Savior's Champion) one of the authors I admire and respect participated in this on her vlog it how I found about it. The V-Day Tag  was created by Bree Barton (author of Heart of Thorns).

Although I am not currently writing ROTL (Rise of the Legacy), I am working on the final edits from my editor for ROTL so it is a WIP until it is published but the current WIP I am actually in the process of writing is the sequel TOTL (Trials of the Legacy). So in this tag I used  Cymone and Helia which are characters being introduced in VL2: TOTL.

1. Which character does something epic for another character on Valentine's Day, only to have it go epically wrong?

  • Helia would and most likely give it to Sasha sense he ends up having a secret crush on her (spoiler alert)**.

2. Nine million people buy their pets a gift for Valentine's Day. Which of your characters does this, and what's the gift?

  • Sasha - Horse treats for Belle
  • Yasmine - Tortoise treats for Merlin
  • Jayne - Bluejay treats and a new cage for Windy
  • Alyssa - Chameleon treats for Ember

3. Which character is celebrating Singles Awareness Day (S.A.D.) and how do they celebrate?

  • Cymone by hitting up clubs in the Twilight Realm and snagging a hawt single guy.

4. In 1537, King Henry the Eighth declared February 14th the official holiday of St. Valentine . . . the same King Henry who beheaded two of his six wives. Which character decides to murder someone on February 14th? 

  • Eleanor Vanhorn Crowling

5. Which character writes and performs a sappy love song for their crush?

  • Devlin for Jayne

6. Fill in the blanks: I saw _Toby/(Tobias)__  give a box of __Wild  truffles __ spiked with aphrodisiacs to ___Cymone___ , which made them wildly _Seductive_.

7. Every February, the Italian city of Verona receives approximately 1,000 letters addressed to Juliet. Which character writes a love letter to someone who does not exist, and what does it say?

  • Avery (Chronus McAvoy) to his dead wife (killed in last war). Dearest Madeline, I know that you are gone, but it was not in vain Erisian will rise again and will succeed. Sorry you had to die at the hands of a friend turned enemy she paid dearly my beloved - Chronus.

8. Which character breaks up with their significant other on Valentine's Day by text message (or an equally awful way if there are no texts in your world)?

  • Yvonne aka the 'Love Vixen' would probably do it if he pissed her off enough and she was fed up.

9. In Finland, Valentine's Day isn't romantic-it's called YstΓ€vΓ€npΓ€ivΓ€, or "Friend's Day." Which character celebrates Friend's Day by playing a massive prank?

  • Cymone

10. One of your characters consumes too much chocolate and champagne and gets sick all over the love of their life. Which character is it?

  • Jayne
I hope you enjoy!!!
