Celebrate: Soul Cutter & Giveaways

Announcing the re-release of Soul Cutter
with new cover!

Soul Cutter
YA Horror/Paranormal Romance
Blurb: 

The Soul Cutter is hunting again.

Seventeen-year-old Élan spends her free time videoing psychic scams and outing them online. Skepticism makes life safe—all the ghosts Élan encounters are fakes. When her estranged mother disappears from a film shoot in Egypt, Élan puts her medium-busting activities on hold and joins the search.

In Egypt, the superstitious film crew sucks at finding her mom. When a hotel guest is killed, whispers start—the locals think their legendary Soul Cutter has come back from the dead. Élan's only ally is Ramsey, a film-crew intern, but he’s arrogant, stubborn—and hiding dangerous secrets.

When Élan discovers the Soul Cutter is no scam, she finds herself locked in a deadly battle against a supernatural killer with more than her mother’s life at stake.

Élan is fighting for her very soul.

Celebrate: Indecision & Giveaways


I sure was crowing about getting a lot done last week (working on both my WIPs and a new cover and formatting for Soul Cutter, and a bunch of stuff).  I was so busy patting myself on the back I didn't notice the hole in front of me until I fell in. 

This week's been Lexa's Productivity = 0; Confusion & Indecision = 1.

I got the book cover design finished, but I had to decide on the font for the title.  Easy, huh?  I researched the ones other dark fantasy authors were using. But who knew trying them all out would take me 5 days to see what does and doesn't work, what is free and lisensed, and that in the end I'd be satisfied with none?  Plus my CPs gave a thumbs down on my new chapters.  They're emotional ones.  I write chase scenes and plot twists like a pro. But gooey, emotional scenes? I write like a 5th grader and not one of the smart ones.

But as Cmdr. Peter Quincy Taggart says:

So I'll eventually decide on a title font, figure a way to weasel my way through the emotional scenes, and get more things done this coming week!

* I have an interview on Roadie Notes this week. Drop by and say "Hi" if you have time. :)

If you're a writer, are you better at writing action or emotion?  

If you're not a writer, do you ever have a project which seem simple but turns out to be anything but?
