My first novel is out live on Amazon Kindle! Earlier today I uploaded it to both Amazon and Barnes and Noble. This is the book description I added:

Brielle Marshall's life completely changes on a random Tuesday in high school, during a five-minute encounter with a gorgeous stranger. On her way to an assembly, a boy grabs her hand and asks if she remembers him. While she doesn't, there is something about him that reminds her of long ago. He tells her she needs to skip the meeting; that their lives depend on it.

Attracted to the mysterious boy, Brielle does as she is told—she escapes high school, with her head filled with him. He leaves, but it isn't long before he returns and she finds out the truth: that when she was an adult she traveled through time, and is now reliving her life. That she had supernatural abilities before, which she must regain. But most importantly, she needs to remember her previous life, if she wishes to avoid a devastating future…

Resurgence is tailored for a young adult audience and contains language, mild violence, and sexual situations, not recommended for readers under the age of 17.

Self publishing

It's time to get my first book published! I had to come up with a cover, which has been surprisingly the hardest part so far. What the hell do I know about covers anyway? How do self-published authors do it (without paying someone to do it)?

Luckily for me, the hubs has an Adobe programs bundle that includes Illustrator. I had zero experience with it, but it seemed like the thing for me, so I've started watching videos on YouTube. Hopefully I'll finish soon and get this thing published.

It's simple enough: a photo, some lines, and text. Why is it sooo hard?? The photo's not even complicated; it's something like this one here: rising above the clouds.

Thanks, NaNoWriMo!

If it weren't for this amazing program, my second book would still be just notes in my cellphone. But today it's a 50K-word novel (more to come) and I want to know where it goes.

But I need to take a break from typing. My brain hurts.
