(Off my soap box now)... The Christmas holiday has snuck up on me this year. I'm never really ready for it, but this year it took the postal worker telling me Christmas is next week for me to realize how late in the year it is. Sheesh. I've had my head in the books, writing, writing, writing. I don't see a problem with getting immersed in the alternate world I write about until reality slips away! This particular book, Jasper, Book 6 in the Stone Society, is very special to me. Jasper and Trevor tugged at my heartstrings from the beginning. I've let their story linger in the background as long as I could, wanting to keep them all to myself.
Now, I'm closing in on "the end" and ready to share them with you. They will be coming to an e-reader on February 10th... Stay tuned for the cover reveal early in January.
Until, Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!!!

With every book, I try to find people (actors, models, athletes) who look like the characters and put them on pinterest. Here's my link if you want to check it out... Faith Gibson Pinterest page but I'm having a really hard time with Nik. I see him in my head, but there is nobody out there that I have found who looks like my version. So I chose someone close. Same with Sophia. These two are so special, nobody compares. But alas, I chose someone anyway.
Tomorrow is Halloween, my favorite day of the year. I will put aside the editing pen to dress up as a Xan Demon, complete with horns and pointy ears, and hand out candy. Then I will go have fun with adults. Here's to a blessed Samhain to you all. May the spirits that crossover when the veil is thin be those you wish to commune with.

My first published work was a short story and it was MM. Candy Hearts was originally published in a Valentine's Day anthology, but it will forever have a special place in my heart as the story that started it all.
If you like MM stories, and want something short and sweet, check out Candy Hearts

Book 4 in the Stone Society Series
By Faith Gibson
Geoffrey “Frey” Hartley- soldier, helicopter pilot, boxer, martial arts expert - is the biggest, baddest Gargoyle shapeshifter in the Stone Society. After too much death and destruction, he hung up his dog tags. Now he is the owner of Lion Hart Dojo and Gym. For almost six hundred years, Frey has spent his life protecting humans while secretly praying for a family. Some of his Clan are finding their mates, but the fates aren’t making it easy on any of them.
Abbi Quinn – teacher, wife, sister - is an abused, broken down young woman. After her parents’ death when she was seventeen, Abbi hung up her dreams along with her ballet shoes. Married to an abusive, controlling man, Abbi can’t remember what love feels like. When a stranger offers her a way out of her horrid situation, Abbi is torn. She tried leaving once before and the result almost cost her life.
When Frey finds his mate in the beautiful yet subdued Abbi, the pull between them is undeniable. He vows to find the smile hidden beneath her pain, to give her back her dreams, to see her dance. He will do whatever it takes to rescue her from the hands of her husband, even if it means protecting her from the sidelines.

For me, the hardest part about writing is editing. I write whatever pops in my head until I get to "the end" and then I go back and read the story. Sometimes I love what I've written, and sometimes I think what the fuck? Sometimes my editors ask me what the fuck? It's those moments I know the words have to either come out, or totally be revamped.
Today, I wrote the end and looked at my word count. 99,986. I knew that wouldn't last. As soon as I remembered a few things I meant to write, it was over 100,000. To me, that's a lot of words considering my first book in the series that introduced the story and characters came in under 80,000.
So tonight I'll take a step back, reach for a book totally out of my genre, and chill. Or cry. The book is supposed to make me cry ugly. I hate crying ugly, but I so love Sandrine Gasq Dion's books.
Burgers on the grill, cold beer in my hand. Later, lots of tissues. Tomorrow, back to Frey.

Now, It's June. While technically we're still 12 days away from the summer solstice, the weather is heating up quickly. I'm more of a fall girl with the cool breezes and the leaves changing colors, the Halloween decorations and such. I'm cool with summer until the 4th of July, and then I'm done with it. I'll stop complaining and get to writing now.
I raise my glass of fruity concoctions to you all and hope for cool breezes to blow your way...

One article was on a blog and it was talking about authors asking readers what they wanted. Their advise was to write what you want to. Not every reader will like your story, your ending, your dialogue, your subject matter, etc. What matters is that the author writes the story they want to tell, how they want to tell it. I have found this to be true. Not everyone who reads my books likes them. I'm okay with that, as long as I have those who do like the way I write, the characters, the dialogue, etc. I love my characters. I have to. They are a part of me, living in my brain, 24/7. Yes, they speak to me. Yes, they dictate where the story goes. I'm okay with that.
Another article spoke about "how to tell if you're really a writer". After several key points, the last one was the only one that mattered: you write because you have to. This is me. I have written since I was a teenager. From stories, to poetry, to song lyrics, I write. I doodle. I make notes. I sometimes put these ideas together and sometimes, I don't. But I write. I have no choice.
Having said all that, I am a writer. I am going to a writer's retreat in May. I buy writing books. I am honing my craft. I want to be a better writer. If you have to do something, do it well. Do it to the best of your ability. I want to write, to the best of my ability...

Frey is adamant that his story be told next. It happens at the same time books 2 and 3 happen and it is basically written in my head. I just need to put it to paper.
5k words written yesterday is a great start...

In keeping with the hearts theme from the Candy Hearts novella, I am going with Troubled Hearts. This new title will bring about a new cover as well. This change will help with the next book in the series, tentatively titled Mending Hearts. I already have the cover picked out for it (that is if the characters allow me to continue the story as I have it planned out). I hope the new title and cover will be out soon. I am in love with both and I want everyone to join in my happiness.

Gregor's story was so much fun to write and I knew it would be. The love/hate relationship between him and Tessa was seamless to write. I never questioned their beginning, nor their end. The in between for those two came instantly. The other characters' stories came in flashes, in dreams, and in the shower. I often have epiphanies driving down the road and this happened with one of the characters. He spoke to me and I was crying when he told me his story. You will get a glimpse of that in Gregor.
Dante is next. I know where his story starts and ends and I have most of the in between. Once I did deeper, I'm sure he'll be whispering in my ear as well.
