It’s been a few months since I did a writing update, so I decided it was high time I gave you another one!

So far, 2018 has been a pretty slow year for writing, I haven’t done a whole lot, but there’s been a few changes since my last update, so I’ll let you in on them. 😀

 

WIP—The Blade of the Dragon Trilogy

It’s only a small novella and its a Beauty and the Beast/The Phantom of the Opera retelling. I’ve had a lot of fun writing it so far, so I’ll also include a few snippets at the end for your enjoyment!

Now, for the questions! Continue reading
