Isn't it beautiful? I could look at it all day...  which I sorta do since it's my lock-screen wallpaper on my phone. Let me know what you think? 

Playlist for Shift

Hello Beautiful People!

This playlist is by far one of the longest I have ever released and it was after spending weeks cutting it down to a manageable size. There is just so much emotion in Shift that resonated with me in these songs. 

One of the more interesting facts about this list is that there is quite a few metal songs - a genre I typically don't listen to, but I was drawn in by the songs on this list. Many of them were actually sent to me by my husband, who has spent a surprising amount of time finding music to describe Sadie's feelings. 

Anyway, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do... now back to writing.

Stay Awesome!


Revelations.

Hello Beautiful People!

Writing Shift has been a difficult road. Between the holidays and New Year funk, I got really behind on my schedule. Then I hit a wall - Not only do I just don't want to write, but everything I write is crap. CRAP I tell you. Thank GOD for the editing process. 

There's nothing I can say to explain just how horrible it is when, as writer, you go through this self-hate mental block. It's so hard because as I am writing, I am mentally rolling my eyes at myself. This crap-fest going on here doesn't just apply to my novels - no it has spilled over into my freelancing jobs. So, I decided that I needed a new lease on life and possibly a break. 

I have recognized that I've given myself undue stress by setting deadlines. Isn't freedom one of the reasons I chose to self-publish? YES.  So, I'm not longer allowing myself to stress about getting my books out fast (sorry those who are patiently waiting the releases).

Secondly, I've taken a short sabbatical with my freelance work and my family had decided to do a little traveling when my husband can get a way. It's going to be awesome! I cannot wait to share our adventures. 

Stay tuned. Soon I will reveal a teaser image for Shift followed by the playlist. I'm trying to set up a cover reveal tour, so we will see how that goes. I honestly cannot wait to share the cover for Shift. It is amazing and probably the best one out of the series. It's my favorite - for sure.

Until then... Stay Awesome!


Reveal: Blurb for Shift

Hello my beauties!

I hope you've enjoyed my book reviews so far. I have one planned for each Friday until mid-April. The review's I've done so far as brought in some extra attention to my blog and social media pages, so I think I'm heading in the right direction with this one.

There isn't much to update on the writing front. Life seems to be leveling out on me, so I should be able to get back to my regular schedule. I may have an concrete release date by the end of the month. So far, it's looking to be around April. :D  Anyway... here's a little something to tide you over. XXXX


Shift, the final book of The Caelian Cycle

Chaos is what rules Sadie’s life. Separation, lies, and an overpowering Talent have pushed her fragile sanity to the breaking point. Without Kian to fall back on, Sadie has to learn that her strength comes from within – as well as from those she loves. Just when Sadie begins to attain some stability, the true nature of her Talent reveals itself, causing her world to shift.

War is on the horizon. Tensions are rising at an exponential pace between the US government and the Caelian citizens of America ever since the exploits of the HPC were exposed. Communities are being torn apart. The United States is on the brink of another civil war. Mistrust, hatred, and fear are the fuel behind the violence plaguing its citizens. Something needs to shift.

Peace is what unites the HCA and the Caelian families who strive for positive change. Some progress is being made, until Miles Koenig reveals his master plan 20 years in the making. Hoping to enact change and unify the nation, Sadie embarks on a dangerous mission not only to stop her grandfather, but to transform the pending war into a revolution for peace.

Everything is going to SHIFT


There you have it. Basically, things are going DOWN. Can't wait to get the cover ready to reveal and hopefully have a firm release date - I know there are at least four of you who are itching for a conclusion. :D

Stay Awesome!


January: an update

Hello Beautiful People!

Hi! How are ya?

Well... I have been in a bit of a writing slump lately. January is ALWAYS the worst month for me - seriously. Life is overwhelming right now and that is after I have all the other "new year" things to deal with. The beginning of the year has always been full of too much LIFE STUFF that I can never seem to find the time or motivation to do anything besides make sure the kids are being taking care of and well... exist.

However, things have been looking up. There has been a huge re-working of our daily schedules that made me fall behind on my word count goals so sadly, I will probably have to push back SHIFT's release until April 2016

Fear not! All the Tyner's are adjusting and *fingers crossed* everything will be OKAY.

With the extra time until SHIFT's release, I have some cool things planned that will (hopefully) pump everybody up. Those things are Shh-Shh-Secrete-Quite. However I can tell you that in the next few weeks, I will be able to get the blurb (maybe have the playlist ready) and have a cover reveal for SHIFT - so that's awesome.

Finally, I decided to host a few book tours on the site. Not a whole bunch because ain't nobody got time for that. I've been considering this for a while because I want to help promote other self-published authors and to be transparent - the traffic to my site wouldn't hurt. Also, I'd like to read and review the books that interest me.

Love you guys! Here's to February 2016 arriving with it's 29 days of getting my life back in order. I CAN DO THIS!

Stay Awesome!!!
