Happy Birthday to Me: A free KISSING MONSTERS gift

Happy Birthday to Me: A free KISSING MONSTERS gift

Hi everyone!!

Today I am celebrating my 28th birthday (yay!), and although I know it’s me who’s supposed to receive gifts, I felt like giving something back as well this year ๐Ÿ™‚

Which is…:


โ€ข KISSING MONSTERS: a FREE Kindle download on Amazon for a limited time!

Starting today, KISSING MONSTERS will be available as a FREE download on Amazon until September 12th!

You can find it here.

I’m aware that most who follow my blog already own a copy of KISSING MONSTERS โ€” but if you know someone who’d like it, please share this with them so they can download the book for free before the offer expires after September 12th โค๏ธ Thank you!


โ€ข Now back to celebrations…

Of course, I’ve received some wonderful gifts myself from my family today ๐Ÿ˜€ Lots of books I am DYING to read (check out my Instagram story for a peek!) and even a video game called Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town for the Nintendo Switch! I know, I know, it looks all very cute and bubbly (which it totally is); although the books I write have pretty dark themes, in all honesty I’m a sucker for those chibi-style, brightly colored video games such as the farming titles of Harvest Moon and Story of Seasons. I’ll be having loads of fun with this one, especially because I used to play the original version for the GBA when I was a twelve year old kid ๐Ÿ˜‰ NOSTALGIA TO THE MAX.


Okay, I’ll keep this post short and sweet so we can all go on with our day! Please, if you can, share the news about KISSING MONSTERS with anyone who might be interested, and, of course, have a lovely day yourself!

โ€œYou can be more โ€” so much more than a demonโ€™s servant; so much more than an instrument of shadows.โ€


Today is the official release of KISSING MONSTERS, a dark yet romantic short story written for Valentine’s Day โ€” and best of all? It’s a FREE download ?

Find out what it’s about…:


โ€œWhen you kiss a monster, you turn them into angels.
If youโ€™d kiss the Collector, he would turn you into a monster.
Soโ€ฆ what happens if you would kiss a human?โ€

Her name is Kiss.

She travels the world to find monsters to kiss and turn them into angelsโ€”for the world has too many monsters and too few angels, she believes; too many shadows and too few stars in the sky.

But then she crosses paths with Zane, a young human man, a lost and lonely cello player, who tells her about the Collectorโ€”a monster who would turn her into a demon if sheโ€™d kiss him.

The Collector wants and claims everything that catches his attention.
And so, he starts hunting for Kiss.

Will she run? Will she stay and fight?
Or could Zane, a mere human, save her instead?


>>> KISSING MONSTERS is a free eBook! Find your preferred download link here <<<


The concept for this story had been in my head for several months, and early January I suddenly realized that Valentine’s Day was coming up and that this story would be perfect for it ๐Ÿ™‚ Perhaps it’s not your usual Valentine’s tale, because no, it’s not a sugary story filled with roses and blushes, and yes, it involves actual monsters. But don’t worry, plenty of kisses are shared ?


I hope you all enjoy reading KISSING MONSTERS! I had a great time writing it, so I hope it’ll bring you joy as well ๐Ÿ˜€

(Don’t worry if you don’t have the time to read this on Valentine’s Day โ€” you could read it any time, really, because monsters and romance are never out of season, right?)

DECEMBER 2019 Writing Update: releasing JODI COLLINS, finishing NOCTURNE, and merry Christmas

DECEMBER 2019 Writing Update: releasing JODI COLLINS, finishing NOCTURNE, and merry Christmas

Dear Sleepwalkers,

It is time to say goodbye to December, and what a month it has been.

I don’t know about you guys, but every year, instead of slowing down, I tend to channel some extra “fuel” to power through the last month โ€” just to get all those last things done, just to do something extra, all so I can take a deep breath at the end and look back at the year feeling like I really accomplished something.

Well, this year has been the same… but am I happy will all that I’ve done this last month of the year? Read on!



โ€ข New release: The Insomnia Files, File #1: JODI COLLINS

This month I released my very first international publication โ€” a prequel especially written for first-time Insomnia Saga readers, a short story about the series’ main protagonist, Jodi Collins.

It was really exciting, for I’ve been looking forward to this for months, maybe even a year, and I already wrote this short story back in July, so it was awesome to finally see it turn into an actual eBook ๐Ÿ™‚

In case you’ve missed it โ€” The Insomnia Files, File #1: JODI COLLINS is available as a free eBook! You can find the download link you prefer and more information about the story right here.

Did you know that the story actually takes place on Christmas Eve? So, if you haven’t read it already, perhaps you should tonight! ๐Ÿ˜‰




โ€ข Editing: INSOMNIA

This month my team and I finished another round of editing INSOMNIA, the first book in the Insomnia Saga, which will be published February 11th 2020!

I’m really enjoying the editing process, but, to be honest, I don’t mind that we’re taking a few weeks off for now ๐Ÿ˜‰ We’ll be back for the last round in January, but during the holidays we’re taking it easy!


โ€ข Writing: the last chapters of NOCTURNE

If you’ve been following me on either this blog or social media, you probably haven’t missed the fact that I’ve been working on the second installment of the Insomnia Saga, NOCTURNE, ever since September.

Working on this book has been awesome, but like I said in my writing update back in November, it’s been a bit of a “bumpy ride”, since I couldn’t work on it full time. I rewrote the first book, INSOMNIA, halfway the writing process, gave my site a huge makeover and update, had to do some work for the publication of JODI COLLINS as well as the promotion of it, and I also had to edit the manuscript of INSOMNIA…

So, actually, I never expected to be able to finish NOCTURNE before the end of the year.

Yet, somehow, I did!

I’m not sure how I did it, to be honest โ€” but like I said on social media last week, when inspiration strikes, it strikes hard, and that somehow gave me this amazing writing-boost ๐Ÿ˜€ I wrote about 16 chapters in two weeks, and last Thursday I finished the project.

Finishing a novel always is the greatest feeling. I swear, it’s magic. And the same goes for finishing NOCTURNE, because really, this book was intense. It’s kind of hard to talk about itโ€”or not talk about itโ€”, since INSOMNIA hasn’t even been released yet, and I don’t want to give away any spoilers. However, I can safely say that I’ve learned a lot from writing this book, along with my characters who also learned some valuable lessons themselves, and despite the very dark, sinister themes of this book, I had loads of fun writing every single sentence ๐Ÿ˜‰

I already sent out a message on social media, but I just want to say it again: The last day writing this book has been especially fun thanks to all the encouraging messages I got from readers and fellow writers all over the world, while I was furiously typing away on my laptop; it was awesome to hear from you all! Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚


โ€ข Sit back and relax: it’s almost Christmas!

After all this hard work, I’ve decided to take a break for a couple of weeks, just to replenish my energy, read some books, play video games… well, to simply do all those fun and lazy things you sometimes just really need to do, right?

Also, tomorrow it’s Christmas! I want to wish you all a merry Christmas; I hope you have a lovely time, no matter however and with whoever you spend it.


With this, I’m going to end my last writing update of 2019.

Coming up next week however, is a blog post in which I’ll look back at this year and give an overview of all the things I’ve done, learned, and accomplished this last twelve months, and with the start of the new year I’ll also share a post in which I’m going to tell you about what bookish things you can expect from me in 2020 ๐Ÿ˜€ I hope to see you here on my blog!

But until then…

Have a happy Christmas. Sit back and relax. Read a book (may I suggest my Insomnia Saga short story? …VERY subtle, right?). Enjoy life. Celebrate winter. (Or take notes like a maniac for your next project, as I’ll probably be doing :P)

Feel free to leave a message; I love hearing from you!
