Stories that Sever the Shadows

September 18, 2017

Things look a bit different around here and on my social networks today! I’m refreshing the look, with a new author tagline – Stories that Sever the Shadows.

While I liked my former tagline, “Bringing Joy to the Journey,” it felt too shallow to me. It didn’t dig deep into the marrow of why I do what I do. I want to sever shadows! I want my stories to pierce the shadeย so thatย journeys through the dark can have joy and hope.

While ideally they are comforting in their own ways, I don’t aim to write books that pat you tritely on the head and keep you comfortable, but rather fierce, intense tales that grip you, impact you, and inspireย you toward victory and triumph.

Exciting changes and news!

I also have some more exciting news coming. ๐Ÿ˜€ My first email newsletter goes out on Thursday September 21st! Subscribers will get the earliest glimpse of my graphic and prompts for the upcoming #WIPjoy, and in this letter I’ll also talk about my current writing projects and my plans for the near-future…as well as some exciting new opportunities to connect, see sneak peeks, and maybe win giveaways. ๐Ÿ˜€

  3. Oh my goodness, I love it! I’m a bit (well, more than a bit ๐Ÿ˜‰ jealous of your ability to create such epic taglines. o.O Go you!

    • Awww, you’re so kind!! <3 This took me FOREVER, by the way. ๐Ÿ˜› Hehehe. I mulled it over for days and days and had a lot of "rough drafts" before I hit gold. ^_^

  4. Your new tagline is so much better!! I get the joy one connected to your WIPJOY but the new one fits your stories so well!!

  5. Love the new look, especially the pretty lavender background!

    • Thank you! I actually thought the background was lavender before…I went for a slightly more blue tone this time. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Must be my computer screen! I see it as purplish!

I love to hear your thoughts!
