February 1 question - If you are an Indie author, do you make your own covers or purchase them? If you publish trad, how much input do you have about what goes on your cover?

The very first impression of a book is the cover. So, I believe it's important to have an excellent one!

I'm an indie author, and I have an awesome cover artist: Melissa Stevens of The Illustrator and Design. And, the formatted interiors are amazing too!
Below are Melissa's amazing creations:

Be Wary of the Stars Foretelling Your Destiny


Circus grunt

Growing up within the grind of the enchanted Circus Faire, Crew’s unique talents have blossomed. Though, he’s been warned that the King of Hawkswing is determined to eradicate a certain species, and for his own sake Crew must keep his formidable gifts under wraps.

Relations between interspecies caused an imbalance of power and now are strictly forbidden. Dolorans, like Sage and her sister, are being hunted and persecuted because of their intense powers, leaving them no choice but to run, escaping the genocide of their kind.

She possesses a forceful energy for good and evil.
His untapped powers are growing stronger by the day.
Survival will demand they rely on each other.

When Crew learns a dark wizard is holding his brother captive, he enters into a deal with him in hopes of getting close enough to free those he has imprisoned. Yet, what he uncovers is far more sinister than Crew could ever imagine. Can Crew harness the strength within him to save his brother and Sage and all those in the wizard’s clutches? Or will he be trapped by the wizard’s wicked plan?

January 4 question - Do you have a word of the year? Is there one word that sums up what you need to work on or change in the coming year? For instance, in 2021 my word of the year was Finish. I was determined to finished my first draft by the end of the year. In 2022, my word of the year is Ease. I want to get my process, systems, finances, and routines where life flows with ease and less chaos. What is your word for 2023? Why? 

I don't have a word for the year. And trying to think of just 1 word, I find many words shoving and pushing together to form a mangled complicated web. LOL.

December 7 question - It's holiday time! Are the holidays a time to catch up or fall behind on writer goals? 

During the Holidays, I rarely find time to write a word. My WIP has been simmering on the back burner for months. My muse has dried up a bit, and I'm hoping the New Year will bring inspiration.  

How are you coping with the Holidays?

I have never participated in National Novel Writing Month because I am a turtle writer. And everyday life gobbles up most of my time.
