A Reading Reflection

I cross-posted this on December 30, 2016 on I Heart Yearly Reads, the blog where I keep track of the books I’ve read and reviewed over the years. Today I wanted to reflect on my reading habits ever since I started my blog, I Heart Reading, and how (and if) they changed since I started reviewing. I started my blog […]

When A Writer Has No Words

This morning, I woke up at six o’clock, and started working on my daily to-do list. At eight o’clock, I got a text message from my boyfriend about the attacks in Brussels, at the Zaventem airport. I couldn’t believe it at first. I thought it was either a hoax, or an accident that had happened but was not related to […]

I Heart Designs

I recently revamped a website for my book cover design services, I Heart Designs. My previous design was okay, but it lacked a certain flexibility and the font wasn’t always easy to read. The revamp took about a week (more work than all my other websites combined) but I’m glad with the way it looks now. I took some screenshots […]

Websites Revamped

I spent most of last week revamping three of my websites. I’m working on the fourth one now, and then I have some updates and tweaks to do on here. Next up, I’ll probably work some more on my horror blog and maybe on secret project #1 or #2. Anyway, here’s what I’ve done so far. Click on the pictures […]

News / Updates / Randomness

So, after the April challenge, I wanted to take a few days off from blogging…and before you know it, it’s halfway through May and a few days turned into two weeks. I have a few updates, about writing and publishing, plans for the future, and some general randomness. News First, the release date of Reflected (Mirrorland #2) got pushed forward […]

It’s November already?

October really flew by. I miss October. It’s one of my favorite months, with summer making room for autumn, the leaves changing color, wind picking up, Halloween just around the corner. We’re not that big on Halloween here in Europe, but heck, I’ll take any excuse to watch a good horror movie. The truth is, October passed by so fast […]

What’s Up Wednesday #4

What’s Up Wednesday is a weekly blog hop created by Jaime Morrow and Erin Funk. The goal of this hop is to help connect writers on their writing journey. You can find out more about the blog hop here. What I’m Reading I’m reading “Shattered Secrets” by Karen Harper. I just finished “Lockwood & Co: The Whispering Skull”, and loved […]

Book News

It’s been a while since I updated this website with anything besides author interviews. But I have some projects coming up, and some news, updates and tidbits. All my children’s books are now under the Kindle MatchBook program, which means that when you buy a print copy of one of my books, you can get an eBook copy for FREE […]

WriteMotivation June Check-In: Week One

WriteMotivation is an awesome initiative. Writers submit their list of goals each month, and help motivate each other. Writers motivating other writers is great, and WriteMotivation is just what I need to get back into writing shape. Unfortunately June is a tough month to get started because June also means uni exams, tons of late night study sessions, coffee and […]
