Novel, News, and Update

An update on my life and where I’m going from here

Happy Friday everyone!

I wrote last month about how I am going to start publishing once a week on my site! For those of you who have been following me, you should know that it is a godsend! My life has been so hectic recently and I FINALLY have the time to dedicate to my blog once a week. I am thinking of writing one blog every Friday no later than six in the evening central time. Also, I’ve got a new puppy! Everyone meet Cricket. He’s a Beagle-Brittany mix and is about a year old. I rescued him from the Humane Society about a month ago.

That being said, I just wanted to update you guys on what’s been new in my life. I have finally gotten all settled in here in Alabama. I have an office that is fully dedicated to my writings and musings.  I had finished a novel back in March and I am finally getting traction with it!

Rippling Rage sets place in present Chicago. Nora, a depressed woman in the throes of grief, is having a hard time letting go of her brother, Jeremy. She needs one last goodbye so she meets up with her priest at her local Catholic Church and conducts a seance. What happens after this sends not only Nora into a whirlwind of terror, but her husband. Nora disappears after the seance so Arnold, her husband, enlists the help of two paranormal investigators, Elowen and Augustine. Elowen decides to help Jeremy on his path to find his wife. What they don’t know is that it isn’t a traditional paranormal case. Elowen and Augustine cross paths with a Kelpie, an undine water spirit. This Kelpie loves playing mind games on Elowen and Augustine, so much so that they never know what is reality, and what is the Kelpie’s doing. This novel will send you on a roller-coaster of mind-bending terror, leaving you so scared that you will want to jump off mid-ride.

Rippling Rage is currently in the editing process. It should be finished editing no later than October and the cover should be done no later than November.  The novel is set to be released on April 18th, 2018. I plan on keeping you guys in the loop as much as possible with the editing and publishing process. I do thank you guys for your continued support in my horror-filled writing journey. I will be posting excerpts, character outlines, and much more so that I can bring you into the fold of not only the novel, but my life.

Aside from the novel, I plan on continuing my horror themed articles such as conspiracy theories, writers, movies, books, music, and everything horror. I’m your go-to everything horror chick and I plan on keeping it that way! Thank you for your patience over the craziness that was this summer. I love you guys.

Until next time,

Kenzie

 

Leave of Absence Explained

Long time no see my horror fanatics!  I thought that I would pop in to explain what has been going on in my life that I haven’t been contributing to my website since May.  My life has been in a tailspin and I am so happy to be back in the mix!

The main reason why I haven’t written since may is because I have been in the process of moving, and we all know how stressful moving can be.  I am actually in the American military so moving is a huge stressor on not only the family unit, but work itself.  I was working around the clock packing, sorting, and setting everything up for my big move from Germany to Alabama.

Another reason that I stopped blogging was because I honestly needed a break from writing.  In just three months I wrote over ten horror short stories, a novel, began blogging for Horror Addicts, and started blogging on my own site here.  With that, on top of working and moving, I needed a break for my mental health.  It wasn’t that my mental health was taking a nose-dive by any means, it was just that all of the pressures were causing stress and I just needed an extended vacation, especially after finishing my first novel.  I basically decided to drop the blog in favor of only keeping up with my Horror Addicts Ghastly Game Reviews for the few months while I transition.

What does all of this information mean to you?  Well, it means that I’m back in the full swing of things! I plan on blogging at least once a week, maybe getting a schedule down with it.  I’m going to also start a second novel, and get back into the game of writing short horror stories.  I’ve been debating on creating an anthology series for all of my stories, but we’ll see what happens.  I would love to drop everything and be a full-time writer, but you know, I’ve got bills to pay!

Thank you guys so much for following me and being patient with me through this time.  I know this isn’t typical of my blog posts and I promise my next one will be straight up horror!

Until next time my horror fanatics, stay scared.
