I'm still on a semi-blogging hiatus for the month of August. However, I do have a couple things to share today for IWSG and for Nancy LaRonda Johnson's new book coming out, Salted With Fire.
I've been in the throes of rewriting my ms . . .
LIES! NOTHING BUT LIES!
What? Who the hell let you out?
Your mind, remember?
Treasonous bastard. Fine. You're right. I haven't had a whole lot of time to work on my wip. But time (or lack there of) isn't my biggest problem right now--it's change. We know that like a ripple effect, little changes in the beginning of a story can have big concequences by the end. In short, I'm afraid I'm making things worse with my rewrites and turning my ms into an even bigger pile of poo. At least I know what the cover is going to look like. :P However, I feel the changes are necessary, I'm just unsure about the execution. So what can I do? Keep writing I guess.

About the book - Salted With Fire
Black magic, murder, insanity… humor, honor and devotion. Salted With Fire is a journey of flash fiction and poetry that shows my writing transformation from worldly to wanting to please God.
Flash fiction is my passion; poetry is my release. I love creating a complete story, with a beginning, middle and end, with twists, drama, compassion and horror, all under 1000 words. Salted With Fire isn’t just a book of stories and poetry, it is my journey as a writer, from writing only for the mere joy of it regardless of the message, to writing stories that highlight God’s will for people, even if the stories are not religious in nature.
Inside are fifteen flash fiction pieces and twelve poems with full-color pictures, and short Biblical discussions after each story.
