So, I talked myself in and out of this for the last year and a half, and I finally did it! I ... wait for it ... remade a Figment account!... So, if you want to check out an idea of what my work is like, there's the place to check it out. And look! I even have this handy-dandy link to give you easy access!  :D

Argh! It be Captain Slackeye, ye Land Lubbers!

In case you want to know Captain Slackeye a little better, here's what some fellas are sayin' about him. (Most of these Rivera doesn't agree with.) [I've started a new book called Rivera Windslayer, about a female pirate, and Slackeye is the assistant main character.]

"During a storm, I saw Slackeye man the whole ship by heself. He ran from the wheel to the sails, pulling each one of the strings all on his own. It was a feat of muscle and determination. When the men asked him if he’d like help, he denied them all, insisting he could do it hi’self. And he did! He navigated that ship outa the troubled waters and settled it back by mornin’. I ain’t never seen anything like it since!”
~Davis Bocker,
crew member of the Penguin’s Revenge


“Captain Slackeye of the Mother’s Burden, you say? Yeah, I heard of that rogue. Did ye hear he once fought off a pack of rabid sea turtles with only a stone and his left hand? I shoulda liked to see that fer meself, I tell ye what.”
~Lawrence Shaver,
Gossiper of Bullhead Tavern


The last time I heard that was so many years ago. He’s about as crazy as his old man, that one. Slackeye. ‘Tis a good name fer such a young’un. I hear he saw the Kraken comin’ toward his ship and just an evil stink eye look from the lad sent that giant fish swimmin’ away in terror. Could ye imagine that? The boy scared a Kraken!”

Again with the Blogging

Sorry I haven't been on lately, but, let's be honest, it's not like this blog is that popular right now. Life's gotten in the way, me being as young as I am and having to work full time as well as care for my new puppy. Y'all wanna see his picture? He's adorable.

This is Rowen. He's a pure-bred Aussie and he's my world. He was ten weeks when this was taken but now he's thirteen. I've been away from him for a few weeks, sadly, and this is the most recent I currently have.

Anyway, I've published Unpredictable Prophecies again, through a new publisher! Here's the link:

It's so pretty, and I love the cover! Much better than the original one, in my honest opinion.

Also, it's prequel, Unimaginable Prospects, is for sale as well. (Jeez, it really has been a long time since I've written. My apologies.)

I was so excited when I got them published, it was like the first time all over again. And now I'm working on book two of the trilogy, Unexpected Happenings. It's taking me a while to get back in with the characters, as it's been almost a year since I wrote the first book. I've been re-reading it to get back in the world as well, as I've been working on several projects since then.

Well, until next time.  Dueces.
