    So this is my first March post, BUT—now you can finally see some of what I’ve been up to the past few months!


    You made it to this new site,, so you probably already know that this is the new OFFICIAL website for me and Insperatus. The old blogger site is still active, but will no longer be updated; this is where I’ll be doing my blog posting from here on out!


    So what’s the coolest thing about the new site? You can direct-buy Insperatus! I think it’s a lot less lame to actually sell the book from the official site, right? ;P Anyway, peruse around and check out all the tabs—there’s also quote wallpaper from the book available under the ‘About Insperatus’ tab. I’ve also included extended bios on both myself and the book here.


    The news with Insperatus is relatively paused right now. But it’s good news—a CA literary agency did pick up Insperatus and is currently in the process of pitching it to bigger and better publishers. Once a new publisher is acquired, Insperatus will again go through a transformation. BUT, regardless of the timeframe, it is still for sale nearly everywhere online and through me at signings! So the good news for you readers is that you won’t really notice the slow transformation until it really occurs.


    Most of you know that the sequel to Insperatus is finished—at least the first draft is, anyway. I just want you guys to be aware of that; once Insperatus has its feet firmly on the ground again under new management, the sequel will finally be on its way to publication! I don’t like to give an ETA for the sequel, but I do want you to know that it WILL be published!


    So for now, enjoy Insperatus, and stay tuned on this new site because I will (within the next few months) be revealing the sequel’s title, and adding an excerpt from it as well!


    Lastly, this new site is going to feature more in-depth writer tips. The biggest inspiration for me and my writing, is that so many of you have let me know how much of an inspiration I’ve been to you. Anyone who loves to write should write, no matter the worries of publishing or age. The biggest thing for me to overcome in this publishing realm was my age, but it can be done. No writing is stupid or useless, because even the greatest of writers took hundreds, sometimes thousands, of tries before they were recognized. Some of the greatest writers in history weren’t even recognized until after their death—but don’t let that dishearten you. I’m just saying, NEVER give up on your dreams, whether that be writings (as was, and still is, mine) or anything else. I’m going to be posting some of my poetry, essays, and ideas concerning writing, stories, life, vampires, and whatever else feels right to add! So stay tuned, and happy grand opening! :)

    As Sydney J. Harris once said, “Regret for the things we did can be tempered by time; it is regret for the things we did not do that is inconsolable.” So write, write, write away!
