Hello all :) I hope you've been keeping up with your New Year's resolutions still. I've been struggling with mine, especially the taking more walks since it's cold outside. I've hope you all had a good week and stayed warm. We didn't get any snow this week but my eldest daughter up north got a ton of rain that had some small flurries mixed in and some tornado watches and flash floods. We got a lot of rain and even had a small tornado touch down in Surf City, NC. It was a little baby one, not like the one's that we used to see in Kansas. The beach was really fun to go to after that, a lot of drift wood and cool shells! But that was my week - I wanted to update you all on three main things: REAM Stories, Kindle Vella, & New/Upcoming Festivals.
My REAM stories is up & running! You can follow for free, read a few chapters, then decide of you want to join a tier. You might be asking - What is Ream? Ream is the subscription platform by authors for authors. They combine the best of an eReader app, a reader group, and a mailing list all into one easy-to-use platform that helps authors create a thriving paid membership for their readers. Essentially, you get early access to WIP chapters, artwork, and behind-the-scenes content. Such as:
Rise Of The Vanquisher (first book in the Glyph Master Series)
Rise of the Hunter (second book in the Glyph Master Series)
Of course you can always read more information on Ream's website or the link I shared above. If you do decide to join in, first of all you have my undying thanks and here's what to expect:
A awesome and personal welcome email
Access to all Works in Progress (and there’s quite a few)
New Chapters uploaded at least twice a month (if not more)
Input on how the story moves forward
AND SO MUCH MORE~
Kindle Vella 2024
As you have most likely seen, every Friday there is a new episode of the Kindle Vella, Rise of the Vanquisher. The first six episodes are already posted!! They will all have the same image but a different episode number at the bottom. The first three chapters are free to read, however you will need to buy tokens to read the rest. For more information or to read the first three chapters, here's a link: https://www.amazon.com/kindle-vella/episode/B0CP8YD7G7
Upcoming Festivals 2024
The first upcoming one is the Winter Market in Burgaw again and it's on Friday, January 26th (Not this Friday but next Friday) from 4-8 PM. Below is the informational flyer and direct location. Learn more about the event(s) upcoming in Burgaw: https://visitburgawnc.com/events
The second one I have been confirmed for is not until March. It's the Coastal Comic CON!! It's in Wilmington, NC from March 2nd-3rd. The hours differ but on Saturday it's from 10 AM - 6 PM, Sunday it's from 11 AM - 5 PM. I'll be there on both days - I will not confirm or deny if I will be in a costume ;) Here's the offical website: https://coastalcomiccon.com/ It even has an official countdown! I can't wait to see you all at this one and your awesome costumes. It's going to be such fun!
Last but not least, I have been graceiously accepted by the Holly Ridge Bee Festival. I do apologize for the graphic's low qality, I will get another one that's crisp and clean soon. In case it's illegable, here's the information: Holly Ridge Bee Festival is on April 27th, 2024 in Holly Ridge NC. It takes place from 10 AM - 3 PM. It's best to get there early since there's not a lot of parking where the festival is actually taking place. Like I said, I'll give you more information as this festival is coming closer.
I'm positive that won't be the only events I do this year, it's still early in the year so I promise I will always keep you up to date with everything that is happening with the Zelina series, The Glyph Master series, Ream stories, Rise of the Vanquisher, any other Vella's, books, interviews, podcasts, and festivals. So keep reading these blogs and all my social media posts including Facebook, Tik Tok, & Instagram. Stay tuned for new updates!
And to leave you inspired, here's the artical featuring me. It's been published! :)
