Two Weeks Until More Weird Al and other news

So yeah in just under two weeks at this point there's a Weird Al concert in Joliet, IL, and me and my best friend are going, thanks to my other friend Sara, who I absolutely adore. I've been seriously flipping my shit about this concert since… July? Well, you know, long enough at least for people to seriously question my sanity. (Spoiler Alert: I have no sanity)

The real reason I'm updating this is because I want to talk about Fearless. You know, that novel I'm writing. Well, was writing. I took a break from it and now I'm writing it again because I had a huge spurt of inspiration this morning and I sat and typed 100 whole words before breakfast, which was a Twinkie-Weiner Sandwich. I don't even care if you're not supposed to capitalize TWS.
Sidenote: those things are tasty as fuck.
But I've kind of figured out the direction that the rest of the book is gonna take, which means I can toss out my outline because yeah, no. Most of what I had plotted isn't going to happen. But the ending will remain the same (Alfie helped me come up with it and it's pretty freakin sweet). I'm hoping to get more done on it before the concert and I'll post a revised edition of the first chapter up here at some point near my birthday (which is October 14th for anyone wondering, I'll be 25).

My dad got married

That's really about all I have to report. I'm working on a bunch of stuff right now, no release dates yet, nothing to report quite yet, I'm just kind of… eh.
Oh! << I'm doing a series of daily vlogs about books, reading, and writing. Also movies based off books. You should check it out.

Writer's Block- Destroyed

I figured out the secret to getting myself to be creative all the time. Driving. I kid you not, I go for a 2 hour drive and suddenly I've got ideas just bursting out. Here's hoping it leads to completed projects.

Stella's Saga, Fearless, and being a book bitch

Good news for those waiting for the next installment of Stella's Saga. Book Two of Stella's Saga should be out by the end of September. I finally had the proper stroke of inspiration for how to begin Book Two. It's gonna be intense. It's probably going to be more jarring than book one, especially because now we're following Stella as a mother having to face the cold and the zombies. It will be the last Stella release for a long while.  But that will not be the least of Stella's Saga.

Fearless is moving along splendidly. I've almost hit 10k words on it and I'm gaining momentum. I'm aiming to have it out shortly after Halloween? I'd love to give it a Halloween release and everything but I'm not sure I'd be able to pull that off. I'm trying to take my time with this one.

And now we come to the last announcement I have to give in this blog entry: Starting with the next project after Fearless and Stella's Saga Book Two, I will no longer be naming projects or talking about projects until they're being uploaded to kdp or smashwords. Mostly because I don't want to scrap something that people are excited about, or start talking about something, get a lot written, then move it to the back burner and have a lot of people go Hey, what the hell? Wasn't Emma writing blankity blank? Where'd it go? Isn't she writing that anymore? Emma sucks! We hate Emma!
I mean it probably won't go that far but come on. This is the internet.
That isn't to say that I won't talk about any of my books ever anymore. It just means that when I do it will be about books that are already available or about to be available. Okay? Okay.
